Gonzo loves to cuddle, that's all he wants to do when he is out of his cage. He still won't let me scratch him with my finger but he loves it when I do it with my nose or my chin. He doesn't like it when I stop though! Art S warned about preening, what is considered preening?
Those pictures are so precious. Tommaso loves to cuddle too. He loves to press his little head against my neck and just sit there. He especially likes when I give him scritches while he is pressing against my neck. Of course, it's on his terms.
Well, birds groom and clean each other, this is called preening. Our girl MeMe has decided to preen us - mostly my wife. This may include light grooming but it may also include cosmetic corrections which consist of MeMe trying to chew off anything that offends her sensibilities . This is not done in anger or fear, but most likely out of love and/or kindness but my wife informs me that it HURTS .
Hi guys! This is Ellen, Art's wife. "Preening" (the bad kind) is having bits of skin chewed before you know what's happening. Thinking it's sweet that they're playing with your earrings until they take a chunk out of your earlobe. Having a bit of your lip removed the morning of your parent's 60th anniversary celebration and wondering if you're relatives are going to think you had botox injections...Finding constellations of little red pinpoints all over you forearms and wondering how you let them get in so many shots...Trying to kiss your favorite beastie before they get a chance to "zone in" on a tasty spot. Wondering if including more protein in their diet would put an end to it or encourage it even more......
Hi all! Can someone please tell me how old before you can sex a Turquoise hatchling! I’ve bred other mutations in the past but not the Turquoise’s So I’m wondering if it by the normal blue series wing differences? Thx in advance!
