That is one of the best parts: when the bird is finally back!
No more shellshocked/semi-empty husk but a real bird.


And now they will drive you crazy best reward ever (?)

Re: Rescueing Penny

I was washing dishes with Penny on one shoulder and her stalker Neptune on the other. All that splashing made them want a bath. So I took Penny's bath dish to her cage, and they both jumped on. So I waited to see what would happen. Neptune is so patient with Penny's mock threats.

And wow after five months, they had their first kiss!!!! I'm just so proud of them both! Neptune being so gentle and patient. Penny finally getting brave and learning how to bird. I put in a second bowl and they bathed side by side.

Re: Rescueing Penny

Penny made her first semi controlled flight and landed on my shoulder!!!!!! Yippie!!!!!! I was holding a pasta treat and she wanted it! Didn't want to wait till I walked to her. I'm so proud!!!! First flight with landing where she wanted, instead of the floor!! Yippie!! Penny knew she accomplished something too her face was very pleased.

Re: Rescueing Penny

Oh wow, she really is becoming "all the bird she can be" with leaps and bounds.
Great job!

Re: Rescueing Penny

Thank you CristaNL!
I also just realized it's been a long time since she had stored her poops in her food dish! Infact I can't remember the last time she climbed down from the top of her cage to go poop in her bowl!!! I'm not finding any stored featheres in her food dish either! I dare not hope she has stopped plucking... But not pooping in her food dish is just so fantastic!!
Was it just last month that she really turned the corner! Yeah! No screaming, no biting, no poops in dish, has started trying to fly, has made bird friends, is exploring, is playing with toys!!! Five months what a difference!!
