She’s playing you part of the time. What a smart one she is.

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

By "part of the time" I can only imagine you mean the "part" when she's asleep. But even then there is no rest, for that's the time when her pouffy undercarriage haunts my dreams....

A few weeks ago HRH displayed her brilliant talents of invention! My bird vet sells these very nice stainless steel kabob-type fruit and veg holders with a perspex bobble that screws onto the bottom, and I had loaded it up with things Lilly likes to chew on, like yucca chips and so forth and suspended it vertically in the usual manner. One day whilst replacing the chewed up yucca chips Lilly landed on my hand while I was holding the kabob horizonally, grabbed the seagrass mat and overbalanced, resulting in her going for a bit of a ride on it. I thought "Lilly you are a complete and utter 24 karat rolled gold genius!" and proceeded to rearrange the kabob so it could be suspended horizontally and loaded it up with her favourite chew toys. After rigorous checking for safety, there are now two of Lilly's new favourite toys rigged up for her entertainment, one outside and another inside her cage.

Proof positive (as if any more was needed) that Lilly Pilly is a total GENIUS!!

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

Things have been a little quiet on the Lilly front lately. Thankfully she has come through the massive monsoon season we had and has NOT laid any more eggs, not for want of trying however!

In an effort to try to head her off at the pass egg-wise in the coming months I have invested in a HUGE new cage for her. I get the feeling I may need to confine her to quarters a bit during the winter if/when she starts trying to burrow into the couch or about a thousand other little hidey holes that exist around the house, so to assuage my guilt in locking her up she now has a veritable palace that more befits her high octane antics. Since the coronavirus resulted in hubby's trip to the USA being cancelled, some of those funds were redirected into enlarging HRH's quarters. Much blood, sweat and tears were shed today in it's preparation too. Hubby's blood, HRH was much amused



And she's already had her first bath in it so i think she approves...

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

Yes it is indeed palatial! It's the same size as the one Fang and Val are sharing - we did try shared accommodation with HRH but it just didn't work out, not surprisingly as She is not the type who shares with others.

Poor old hubby sliced his finger open while we were cleaning it yesterday and because he is on blood thinning medication there was blood EVERYWHERE. There was a suggestion that he did it deliberately in order to get out of working on it ... I don't know who would've started a rumour like that!
