  1. Rio has finally arrived (after it seeming like an age waiting for him) He's settled in really well, although Dave wasn't too chuffed about being woken up at 7.30 by him if only I could stay in bed until that time... He really is a credit to Pudsli, he is in beautiful condition and is so friendly. He hasn't met Amber yet except seeing her through the cage, although last night he kept bobbing up and down on his perch everytime she was practising her acrobatics :roll: What I find really weird is how small he is and fast - compared to Amber who now seems massive and slow (bless her) I can't wait to get home tonight and spend some time with him.... I'm sure pics will follow as soon as possible.
  2. how odd - at least they are nice pictures to fill half the screen aren't they?
  3. At least I know why it was flashing at you - I thought you either had a posh glass desk or it was in a holder or something! I'd go for a black one...
  4. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I think all the optical ones flash :roll: Although you shouldn't be able to see the red flashing if it is flat on you desk (or am I missing something?). The good news is that after a few minutes the red light should turn itself off
  5. Pudsli It's so funny - I've put the new cage next to hers so she can get used to it being there. She's studiously ignored it up until 5 minutes ago - now she's started to crane her neck to have a look.
  6. Amber's new friend is arriving tomorrow - I can't wait I have just got a blue green cheeked conure from a member of this forum - his cage is set up and waiting... I'm sooo excited
  7. When I say some of the bars are bent its not seriously... they are just slightly misaligned when trying to put together. I wouldn't dream of putting Amber in an unsafe cage, it's not worth it for the sake of a few quid. I too have noticed the paint flaking off and am looking at buying a new cage for her next week.
  8. We leave the TV on for Amber - she also has the cats to entertain her when they start fighting....
  9. How cute I have to say I never know how wet to let Amber get... I spray her about 3 times a week at the moment but she never looks all that wet compared to some pics I've seen.
  10. Amber looks longingly at our plates when we are eating - it's so hard not to give her anything. I could be wrong but I'm sure I read somewhere that it's not something to be encouraged (I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong there) Amber has a one sided wing clip and almost everyday launches herself off the top of the cage - it is hearbreaking to hear the thud and I feel sick every time she does it (I am currently looking into buying some foam. covering it with waterproof material and surrounding her cage with it). I find that when she is on the floor that this is the only time we can actually pick her up without gloves/towel as she seems to know that we are helping her. We have had Amber since the middle of January and she is now 9 months old, very chatty and loves being talked to. She loves my better half and lets him scratch her neck, not too keen on me though.... I'm sure once she's settled she'll be fine and will be chattering away non stop very shortly. Good luck with her It's amazing how much they become such a big part of your life so quickly...
  11. I have the matching cage... although my better half has just bought another bigger one from Ebay!!! I know what he's up to... we already have a spare cage that will be occupied next week so he goes and buys another :roll: Ooh, what can I have in the next empty one??
  12. I love Galah's they are beautiful birds... ho hum one day when my pockets are bigger
  13. I've just bought a playstand for Amber from Ebay - what a bargain! only £16 plus £14.99 postage Here it is... (sorry don't know how to shrink links) http://shrunklink.com/?uipAlways happy to shrink long links (MadMudMob)
