Re: Rescueing Penny

After her rescue and obviously never having flown in her adult life, I didn't tji k we would get here!!!! Neptune and I where both saying good girl over and over For all you out there with older rescues, it's possible!!!

Re: Rescueing Penny

I just can't help but shout to the world! Yippie Penny is getting this flying thng down!!!! She can now fly to me and land on my shoulder!! She can turn and land gently on perches on the cage tops !!! Her flight has become more graceful and less frantic, lol and she's not screaming the whole time on flight. She can't do loops around the house yet, but I'm sure that day isn't far away!!! Penny you amaze me!! From going clunck straight to the floor, to gliding clunks to the floor, to a few flaps and softer clunks to the floor, too gliding flaps to furniture and fumble landings, to furniture soft landings, to actually flying awarkardly and making direction changes. To flying to cage top and crashing to flying there and landings on perches!!!! Her confidence is through the roof!! She is now flying short flights just because she can , or because Neptune and I brag so much tell how good and wonderful she is!!! I write this because today she took about ten flights already just for the fun of it!!!
Someone, maybe Sailboat once said it's the landings that scare birds that can't fly well, and I find that true. Once Penny could land on furniture instead of crashing to the floor , she started to improve rapidly, and I could see her fear go way down. She quit screaming I'm my God I'm going to die.... lol to look out I'm coming in hot lol, those are my advanced parrot scream interpretations!!
Today all landings have been soft and right were she wanted!!!! A year in the making!!!!! And to think I gave up that she would be able to fly. Credit to the flock, and Ta-dahs bullying
Without conflict and stress how would we triumph?!
Edit: I should also mention she had wing constructions, from never flying, from being in a tiny tiny cage were she couldn't streetch and wing flap. She doesn't have full extension yet, but the improvement is more than get vet and I thought she could make.

Re: Rescueing Penny

Penny is doing a great job of flying. She looks terrible at it, but she gets the job done! It hasn't even been a full month of flying. She can fly to me and land on my shoulder even if I'm walking around!!! She can fly and land wherever she wants to even though it's very labored. So proud of her. Since she has made it this far, I know one day soon she will fly pretty and have more strength. I just love documenting her progress!!

Re: Rescueing Penny

That’s so awesome that she gets around so well, when you thought she would never fly . Bindi looks a bit like a flying tank but she gets the job done and no longer has laboured breathing after. Screamer no longer uses walls, cushions and people to stop travel - she can actually hit her mark and nail the landing. So I’m absolutely certain that Penny will get her pilot’s license and develop the endurance!

Re: Rescueing Penny

Way to go Penny! I think once she gains her confidence in sticking those landings the rest will flow naturally
