It's a tough gig having to watch those two, but somebody's gotta do it ;) πŸ’– πŸ’–

Oh your Baxter's got my guys beat for size, that's for sure. But gram for gram, you'd be SHOCKED at the size of Lovejoy's first movement for the day, I don't know how, or indeed why, he holds it all in overnight, it's HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE!!! :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop:

Sounds like one of the Big, Hot Three's Morning Offerings!! Julio has also obtained the "Mother of All Morning Bombs" group!

Never trust a Big Zon until after they have providing that all important morning dump!!

Clearly, nothing as it would be One Big Party, Right!!
Well jeepers you guys, if you're all coming you'll have to give me a few months' notice so I can go buy a bigger house to host that party. I'm playing what feels like a losing game of Tetris with floor space here as it is!! :eek::eek::eek:

I FINALLY caught Lovejoy saying "bouncy bouncy bouncy" on video!! He learned to say it cos he LOVES it when i bounce him up and down on my hand when he steps up. Still very hard to actually record him when he does talk though, cos as you can see he rapidly loses interest when the camera is on him :rolleyes: :)

He's VERY smart, I'm amazed at how quickly he picks things up! Mind you, "bouncy bouncy" is the first thing he's learned from me, he's learned everything else from Jem because of how repetitious he is - cockatiels do be like that sometimes!!

Oh my gosh this is just too precious!
Lovejoy says to say "thank you" and "good morning" to his pretty little cousin Ona! 😘

He's also been mulling over something new for his repertoire this morning. Not sure if it's "baby" or "love you" yet, or a bit of a mash-up, but he'll get it!

It’s so fun to hear them start saying new things!! Ona is still working on some new ones too! So exciting.

It really is, and it's been so unexpected with Lovejoy, not being a species that's particularly popular as a companion parrot and all. And he has just the sweetest little voice too, though sometimes it's hard to tell where he finishes and Val or Jem start, they have all picked up so much from each other!
