Happy New Year! ~ New Mutations & Toys to Celebrate


~ Happy New Year everyone! ~

I hope everyone’s holidays have been and will continue to be jolly & fabulous! Inside the aviary here we have been celebrating and eating, eating and also eating. Ham on Christmas, steak on new years and soft food for everyone winged – yummy!

My new Fawn, Orange Breast and Penguin mutations have arrived and are settling in nicely. I was so excited to get them, they are so spectacular! I cannot wait to take pictures of them. For now, here is a quarantine cage candid of a rather handsome Fawn OB BB who has such a unique and lovely song. I’m still developing names for them as I see their personalities shine.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere,0fawnobbb
And gie’s a hand o’ thine,
And we’ll tak a right guid willie-waught
For auld lang syne!

I’ve also recently stumbled across some adorable new toys from Prevue that I will most certainly be buying for all of my cages. They’re just so irresistibly cute! They’re from a set appropriately named “Birdie Decor.” In their own words: Birdie Décor toys turn your cage into a home for you pet bird.”

Help an Avian Buddy (or Rescue) in need for the Holidays

what_is_christmasThanks to my Facebook account I’ve recently found out about a lot of avian rescues that I was not familiar with before, and their struggles to not only find homes for their angels but to continue to do what they love.

This year, I hope that everyone unable to adopt one of these angels into their homes either donates to their care or to the rescue caring for them. I also hope everyone chooses to adopt or foster even if they also choose to buy. Also remember, big birds are not like little birds in that they are a great bit different in personality & size of responsibility!

I’m very happy to be able to find such meaningful causes and great people to give to this year. I’m one of those people that believes in giving financially or voluntarily to something every holiday. I’m also one of those people that if my fiance didn’t stop me, I would donate every time I checked out at PetSmart, or whenever I see a can drive, or whenever I hear a Salvation Army Bell near Christmas time.
