Dave i've never asked, how did you come to get Tim & Fes? You've had them for many years & they must have been quite unusual then, my most exotic bird then was a canary!

Kaz right from a very young age I've always had birds
But never had a parrot and was totally clueless about em .
Tim came out of a pet shop near Doncaster as a baby.
The cages then didn't even have a grill in the bottom.
Within weeks of getting her Irene slipped 3 discs in her back and was housebound for many weeks before and after her op .
Hence why Tim is a brilliant talker she got 100% attention for weeks on end .
All went well with Tim till she got to about 6.
Then the plucking started we thought it was coz the central heating had come on !!!!!!We didn't know it was the hormones
Then the eggs started coming .
We took  her to vet after vet, aside from a poultry vet non of em knew little about parrots.Years went by with eggs and plucking.Till we found the avian vet we have now had for many years .Who fought and fought to diminish Tims hormone tendencies till in the end she told us to either let her go into a breeding programme or get her a mate or companion.
We placed an ad in The Parrot Society for a Timneh cock.Took two months to find him living in Wigan with an old couple who told us he was 26 and were his second owners ,first one been a shepherd.We think he was much older then we were led to believe!!
Took September to Christmas to get em together and they've been inseparable ever since.
That was 11 yrs ago Kaz.
Tim still can't handle a grill on the cage floor uncovered she just rips her feathers out but like Mandi with Peach we know how to read her.

Kaz with Parrot ownership  and education the internet as been a massive step forward . We never had that 29yrs ago and did loads of things wrong, that in some ways it's  took us years to try and rectify.
Our biggest source of education without a doubt as been Johanna Storm our avian vet in Halifax, who came here 20+years ago from been the vet at Parrot Park in Tenerife.W eve spent many hrs with her

Great to see Tim and Fester as always Dave. Has Festers head feathers grown a bit? He seems to look fuller  :biggrin:
