Re: Nike Picture thread

During the winter months when Nike is fully flighted the TV is by far her favorite perching place.

Re: Nike Picture thread

I love your pictures and your gorgeous parrot.

But I can't help but notice decreased feather quality. Has there been any weight loss?
He should keep thrm zipped up,, even if sn over preening. So of always think health issues first..
Perhaps things are dry , and some misting , humidifier might help.

Re: Nike Picture thread

So does she have a say regarding what is playing on the TV?
Thanks for the Nike Fix!

Re: Nike Picture thread

I always know Nike would be on TV one day. Maybe not like this though.

Laura, no Nike has always looked like that, sometimes more disheveled than others. Her weight is steady. She has always been very rough on her feathers, especially her tail as she drags it, outside down across her perch so she can have it in front of her to preen. I also think that she's getting ready to molt but in my opinion she has never looked smooth since I've owned her and because of that I always bring it to my vets attention at each visit.

It's funny that you mentioned it as I actually thought that she was going to bathe today as she hasn't for a few weeks and she often looks the worst right before a bath.

Trust me, I keep an eye on it. Thanks for noticing it.
