More cucumbers were eaten by the parrots last night. When Rocky really likes something, he won't take his beak off of it. We think he's afraid we'll try to take it from him, so he wants to lay physical claim to it! Also, in this video, I love how something startled him, yet he kept his wits about him enough to keep the cucumber!
Yesterday, we were brewing and bottling in the kitchen. Normally Rocky and Calypso stay in the living room on their cages, Max is in the kitchen with us, and the rest of the parrots are in their cages (Beeps and Stella because they fly around too much, risking getting feathers in the brew and Daphne because I need to keep a close eye on her for protection).
However, Rocky kept screaming. Finally, Thomas brought him in the kitchen with us, where he was content. Apparently he was feeling lazy and didn't want to have to walk into the kitchen. He wanted to hitch a ride! Max kept buzzing him (she wanted us to herself), so she had to go in her cage.
Luckily, with the exception of Rocky, the parrots are very happy in their cages. Sure, we get the occasional "Wanna come out?" but no one screams, so we had a very pleasant afternoon/early evening. Now, if only Rocky would do the same!
