I love all the entries this month but I was expecting more "inner beauty" entrants. Disabled birds. Plucked birds. Very elderly birds. Baby birds (some think they are "ugly" because they have no feathers). I wasn't going to enter my budgie Rocky but so many people thought she was ugly when she was a baby without feathers but I thought she was beautiful! So here she is again. Rocky, my Rockstar BabyBird! Isn't she gorgeous!

Beautiful entry !!!
Rocky was just about 8 days old and her eyes hadn't even opened her eyes yet and had no feathers. Everyone said she was ugly but we thought she was perfect! I loved her cute little chicken wings! She had a very good appetite and was so chubby already. I wonder what she thought when she opened her eyes and saw us huge two-legged silly creatures instead of a mama budgie.

Diesel bird loves his yogurt in the mornings. He sticks his head all way inside the little mason jar🤣. Then he needs a bath🚰I make his yogurt so it doesnt have any sugar in it. Diesel will share his yogurt with me🥰
This is official entry. I saw other people putting this with their post so I figured I needed to.

Hi, do you know that dairy foods are not good for most parrots? Their digestive systems aren't built for it.
Look into it please. I would hate for your beautiful bird to develop an illness from that.

Ok, I didnt know that. I was told that parrots could have yogurt but no other kind of dairy.

I have been giving it to him from the time I got him when he was 8 months old. He is 6 years old now. All if his vet check ups are good. Vets always talj about what good health he is and how hw has unusually good plumage. He doesnt get yogurt everyday. I give it to him a couple times a month.

My sincerest apologies for the late start this month. Personal life and business duties have to come first.
However, there's method to the madness...


This Month's Theme:

INNER BEAUTY
As today, October 7th, is National Inner Beauty Day :)

It's no secret that we all see our birds as beautiful, but... Why?

The obvious answer, It's because of their inner beauty.
The intangible glow of personality that makes them who they are,
and the reason we love them oh so much.
Many of you know I have a soft spot for the "imperfect" birdies, the plucked or
unconventional looking ones that steal your heart. It's that inner beauty that
causes me, and so many of you, to look past the physical,

even if they're physically gorgeous.
They're worthy of being loved no matter what, aren't they?
❤️❤️❤️

So, Let's see pictures of your birds showing how glorious and beautiful they are,
Inside and out!

The winner will receive a free, one year Supporting Membership to Parrot Forums, and the winning entry will be displayed on the forum homepage for the following month.

Only one "Official Entry" per person, however, you may submit as many "Just for Fun" entries as you like! Videos and photoshopped images will be allowed, but not required.
Please don't forget to tell us your bird's name in your post. :)
Good luck everyone!
