Not sharing

Thomas made a soup/puree with a bunch of vegetables we picked up at the farmers' market yesterday. (I know! It's summer! Why are we eating soup? Because it's so delicious, especially with fresh ingredients. Plus, it hasn't been too hot lately.)

Even though there were two bowls, the greys started fighting each other because each one wanted to eat from the exact same spot. They're not the best at sharing.Finally, Thomas grabbed Max's spoon and moved her to the other side. This solved the problem! Max loves her spoon and is more likely to try something new when presented in this manner. Of course, she was already excited about the soup, so the spoon was not a factor this time!

Why are parrots so odd about eating each other's food? My birds watch my every move as I carefully portion out the exact same thing in the same amount in the same size, color, and type of dish. Yet they will insist on going to another's dish.

How are the abused/neglected birds at the rescue doing?
