Poppy (aka Britney)

May 6th, 2012
Poppy (aka Britney)

Well we’ve had Poppy now for what seems an eternity, but in reality its been 5 months. She has settled in so well and is now a big part of our lives, she is so funny and happy to please (me anyway). She has become attached to me and has taken a slght dislike to Karen if we are in the room together.

She has been outside in the sunshine in the past few weeks but due to the horrible weather lately that was short lived. She loved the sunshine and i could see a real difference the outdoors had upon her especially after a full on shower!!

Her feathers are still very tatty but she has just started to moult so hopefully the tatty one will drop out and she will grow nice new feathers that she will leave alone. She still has the occassional pluck but nothing near to what she has done in the past.

Marley and Poppy love each others attention and they constantly chatter to each other. Poppy has learnt many new words but her favourite at the moment is “Pig”, she tends to use this after a really loud burp.

I’ve finally managed to download some photos of her which are from the past couple of months although she doesn’t seem to like the flash on the camera.

6 Weeks On For Poppy.

6 Weeks On For Poppy.

Well what can I say about her, she seems to have lived with us for longer than six weeks she is that comfortable.

I got her straight onto a pellet diet and off seed and she wasn’t any trouble, in fact I found her bag of seed last night and out of curiosity offered her a few bits, she immediately spat them out which was reassuring.

Her playmate Marley and Poppy get on very well and o we decided to get them a double cage to share, they also have shared out of cage time.

Poppy is a great talker and the things she comes out with are hilarious, she even had her own original “ho ho ho, merry crisps” saying for Christmas.

As most of you probably saw from our photos and videos of poppy she was really heavily plucked but she is starting to grow some feathers back around her neck, time will tell if she will be fully feathered again but if not who cares, we love her to bits and know that she loves us back.
