LOL that made me laugh tasha, because I sent shell a message the other day saying ooooh I just sniffed your t-stand and it smells of macaws Very Happy I wasn't actually sniffing it, I picked it up to move it and got a whiff of what was most definately macaw smell. I love it, so I had to make sure and have another big whiff! Its damp smelly musty socks! That's what they smell of! That's what they smell of to me anyway!

Hollie it's the thought that you had to sniff the smelly musty socks first to be able to do the comparisson affraid rather you then me! Dizz's smell used to remind me a bit of raw unrefined molasses....maybe I have a hooter-sniffer issue LMAO

I live with a man who thinks its perfectly acceptable to leave his smelly, musty socks wherever he feels like it for me to pick them up! Very Happy

lol Hollie maybe time to gether them all up and pop them under his pillow at night and when he snuggles down to go to sleep see what effect it has on him. I know somebody who did this to her hubby oddly enough the socks she tells me are now always popped into the laundry basket without asking! It's either that or he's fed up of her telling that story ROTFLMAO

Ha, brilliant idea apart from the fact I HAVE TO SLEEP NEXT TO THAT PILLOW! They are really grim, could sell them to the government as nuclear weapons, I'm sure I've seen them move sometimes...

yeah i tried everything with the blue front i do his food and water everyday he has at times let me stroke him through the bars so i think im winning him over i feed him and my 2 greys in the front room food off my plate potato carrot mash whatever ive got best suited to them sometimes the odd crisp or biscuit so there all treated fairly and it doesnt matter if i come into the room when brandy is out or if im already there when he is let out if hes on my misses hes ok if i dont get close if i did he risks biting her again badly , if hes on his cage ill never take my eyes off him some times he will watch me walk through or move about but he always leans forward like hes going to take off anywhen you can never tell but if i walked in and he knows im not looking at him unaware of him being out he takes full advantage every time and he has done me some nastys like i said if iduck he turns and comes back so i cant do nothing but get lower so drop to the floor he does it again and i have to try pat him in another direction to get out the room i have since had no option but to clip his flight feathers so he still trys exactly the same just a bit slower so i got more time to run i think he just protects sam like his partner and im just a threat i really dont think ill eva change him believe me ive tried ill just stick to my greys and smaller

Awww mine are lovely, they have got attitude though. The two disabled babies from lee, who aren't really babies anymore (but are to me Very Happy) fluff up like macaws and do the swaying thing when confronted with something they take affront to (usually my fingers lol). The other two conures look at them as if to say, ahhhh the joy of youth!

Aww I can sympathise Clive. Penzo (a Grey) bombs me when Jon is around and actively seeks me out! He's getting better with me or I'm getting better with him - not sure which way round that is Wink. My reflexes have certainly improved! Smile

Caiques......little swines!
Galah's........they pick their own! I have 4, 1 male who follow one of the girls about, she's not interested, the other two girls preen each other, one of them follows the male about and he's not interested! I think they are really fussy!

All my birds are indoor birds, though they all go out into the aviary daily.

The 3 girlie galah's share a cage but the male is next to them in his own. We've had galah's for about 6 1/2 years, well the firt one then the second was a year later.

The caiques are gorgeous but very naughty. they are loud, louder than the others, and think they are eagles! They attack the other birds. If they are the only birds then they would be great.
