You know you’re a parront when you say, “Great job pooping!” [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] yes, yes it is true.

Or the similar “You pooped on me! But that’s a good lookin’ poop!”

When you and your husband often talk about bird poop during meals...

... when a wonderful old buddy is having lunch with you at a cafe, and she shares with you how she accidentally ingested a tiny piece of cockatiel poop, and it tasted weird, but kinda like wheat germ and crunchy, and you both were momentarily speechless, but then laughed, only to realize that several nearby tables overheard you, and are now slack-jawed in horror.

TRUE STORY!

Sunny a female B&G macaw;
Japie (m) & Appie (f), both are congo african grey;
All are rescues- had to leave their previous homes for 'reasons', are still in contact with them :)
Hahahahaha, oh I love these -> only birdpeople understand!


Today I did not only have to fish a macaw out of my morning-cuppa (tea) twice, I also had the honour of bobbing for cedernutshellparticles ...
(say that 5 times very fast ;) )

The first time around Sunny dunked her oversized beak in my tea it was to taste it, the second time because..well...you've got to rinse the beak somewhere, right?

An alarm goes off and your nonbird friends say, "Drive faster. It's bird bedtime."

When you try to wrap up all the days activities by a certain time (6pm) because that's "seeds time" lol. Each birdie gets a small amount of seeds at 6pm and they really really look forward to it. How could we be late?!

...when you have conversations with your spouse where you both imitate your Fid imitating you.

These days we start every morning by saying "Good morning!" and "Hi Yoda!" in Yoda's voice because that's what wakes us up every morning. Oh, that makes me think of another!!

...when you never oversleep anymore because your Fid wakes you up promptly at the same time every morning.

You apologize to your birds because you hit the snooze alarm.

Also, at school, I have done this a few times. I'd forget to do a homework assignment. My teacher asks why I didn't do it. My excuse: My parrots shredded it.
Hey, at work once, I had to explain to the Accounting department that my bird ate my paycheck. They asked how big and I showed them. (It was a lovebird!) They laughed. People including the CEO kept stopping by my desk to ask if that was really true.

When you’re on the bus sitting behind a guy with a big raised mole on his neck and all you can think is “I know a birdie who would LOVE to excise that thing for you right now mate !” No queues, no waiting, no anaesthesia, just one chomp and it’s GONE! :)

You get a $50 Amazon gift card for Christmas and you don't spend any of it on yourself-- it all goes for treats, toys and perches for the parrots. :D

When there’s more bird food dishes, water bowls, troughs & cups in your washing up than people stuff.

Edit: And it’s already got poop in it again 5 minutes after being reinstalled in the cage!
