Mellow Yellow Monday & Weekend Snapshot
I wasn't going to take a photo of Paco for a few days. I wanted to wait until he'd been in my home for a few days, to get used to things, then let him out and photograph him sitting on top of the cage. It would make a much better photo. However, then I remembered it's time for Mellow Yellow Monday, and what is more mellow or yellow than Paco? I looked around and found... well, nothing.
Isn't he handsome?! The reason he has the feather duster in with him is that he tends to over groom himself and ruin his feathers. Now he can groom the dusters feathers.
Paco is on loan at the moment. If he and DW hit it off and bond, then he will live here from now on, though if they don't then he will go back to my friend Shannon. If he stays and then they have baby birds, Shannon will get a baby.
My friend Wendy has raised Cockatiels and told me tonight that when 2 are together they're a lot noisier than one alone, and not as people friendly. That would be a bummer as I can't stand the loud, sharp noices. DW is pretty good and only does that high pitched screach a little bit. She has bonded well with me and likes to talk to me and ride on my shoulder. Paco is a very nice bird, mellow, doesn't bite. I hope they stay people friendly. If they produce babies together it will be fun to hand raise the little bird brains, lol. Well, their parents will raise them, but I will handle them a lot so they will be used to being handled.
