    Thanks for that Diana! :) Yes.. She's always had her cage covered... I used some blackout fabric that I have on the front half of the cage & a little round the sides... perhaps that would be too heavy in hot weather.... but I guess in winter will keep her cage nice and warm ! She seems fine...

    Love it Brenda! That's so cool! I really want to get Aku showering with us / me... but she is not a fan of water at the moment... :/ I have another stupid newbie question... Aku seems to have decided to sleep hanging off the bars at the side of her cage tonight... she's never done this before...

    Goodness - a grey living loose in the UK?!?! I was trying to figure out if you were anywhere near us so I could come see! She has had my boys visiting several times a year for 8 years... although their noise level has obviously grown over time!!! Lol... the boys have always showered her with...

    She (definitely female as she has previously laid eggs) ate a diet of almost only seeds - sunflower seeds - so diet change is essential... the vet also said to get her diet changed - gradually ... once she has been on a better diet for a while, if we see little / no improvement in her feathers ...

    Ooh!! Would love to chat to another teacher-parrot owner! I have this crazy idea that if I can get her hand trained (please - any hints?!?!?) I could take her with me a couple of days a week to a spare cage in the staff room... so that she had some more company / interest during term-time! It's...

    Hey Grumpy! Thanks! Aku did really well at the vet... claws trimmed, weighed (375g) and heartbeat checked (a little irregular ... but may have been the stress) and we had cuddles after while I chatted to the vet... she was a superstar!!! We ALL went to Nandos after Aku sunbathing outside with...

    Thank you all so much!!! Really great to meet you all!!! Loads of great advice, I'm trying to gradually integrate as much as possible! Thank you !! Yesterday Aku was moving around her cage more confidently than we've seen so far!! It was amazing! Instead of only using 1 or 2 of the "man made"...
