|More Success Stories|
I just wanted to let you know that Forrest and Gino are adapting well to our household. They love wheat Chex and get them frequently as treats. Forrest became a bit difficult when he first arrived but that has settled down and he loves to take showers. Our daughter handles Forrest regularly and walks around with him on her shoulder. Gino, is loud and protective but will give birdie kisses when asked. I have had many painful bits, but even that is better. He loves being with me when I cook, of course he is spoiled at that time to. We are really enjoying them and I think they look forward to us coming home as much as we enjoy getting home to play with them. With three kids, two birds, a dog, and 4 fish there is never a dull moment. My 81 year old mother even enjoys them squawking during the day and talks to them. Thanks again for everything you do.
To Our Friends at Beak n Wings,
Just wanted to send you an update on our adoptee "Mickey". Before we adopted Mickey I had lots of people tell me that adopting a bird was adopting "someone else's problem". I am glad I did not listen to them, because they were wrong. After bringing Mickey home our journey began with this wonderful bird. On our journey we have learned many of the special joys that come from sharing our lives with these beautiful creatures. My husband and I enjoy coming home to a greeting of "Hiiiiii" and hearing her special morning + evening serenades which include her renditions of multiple tunes and sounds. We are pretty sure at this point that she knows the English language. Mickey is not afraid of strangers and lets multiple people hold her. We have a lot of activity and company at our home, most of which have had no contact with a larger parrot. Although I do not allow young children to hold her our 6 year old twin niece and nephew can spend hours sitting on the couch and talking to Mickey. Mickey is a success story for bird adoption and she is also an ambassador that shows people that these adoptive birds are not "someone else's problem", but a very special kind of pet in need of understanding forever homes.
