Hey guys,


I hope none of you were worried. We are OK here. All critters ok too. We are good, the birds are good. I've just been having a tough time of it emotionally and have sorta stepped back from most stuff outside of our farm. Hubbs and I are planning a long "camping" trip on our property to spend some more time in nature and destress. I'll be back to the forums soonish, I just need a bit more time to get my head on right.



Alex turned 18 on the 22nd and is doing great. Started giving him 2 avi cakes a day and he really likes them, they also seem to be improving his plumage and energy level. I call them his "squares", and he gets 2 first thing in the morning when I turn on the bird room lights. Freedom, Hima, Rin, Boomer, and the rest of the flock are all also doing fine. Even the english budgie with a tumor is doing just fine.



If anyone wants/needs to reach me, feel free to send me an email or pm or something.


I hope you are all taking care of yourselves. ((((Hugs and beak boops to all))))


Bug and flock

Re: checking in

I feel ya. It's hard to take bird forum members problems, when there is so much stress. Like trying to get food. My stores are still pretty empty.

Glad to hear from you. Enjoy the nature! Abd I want filly updates.

I've been plantings flowers, and putting up humming bird feeders. Those hummingbirds are so amazing!

Stay well!!

I'm trying to propagate Koreanspice Viburnum from stems and I was almost late to digital work because of it LOL. Cross your fingers for me-- I had to call a random church to ask to make the cutting and I am going to be so sad WHEN they die lol I still felt like a deviant---wanted to put a sign on my back "I HAVE PERMISSION!!!" LOL!

Re: checking in

Thank you for an update, glad things are going as well as possible.

No worries, pace yourself as this is going to be a very long siege with repeated clusters of recurrences.

Looking forward to seeing you on the forums as able!

Thanks for the update bug, the Henhouse has been pretty quiet without you!

May your little slice of earthly paradise continue to provide you with everything you need.
