Because happy days need happy birds. :)

Vegas says she's smarter than you. The Megaminx dodecahedron rubik's cube is nothing to her advanced psittacine brainpower.

I put up a page for Vegas on my website here: http://foxloft.com/exotics/vegas
- Sorry these always take me so long and I'm slow to upload pictures - I always mean to take more, since people ask - but it's quite a time consuming thing to do!

In other news, I just got back from a wonderful trip to visit friends in the Toronto area - I will be posting pictures soon. I came home with tiger bites in amusing places and I realized the other day at the gym my arms make me look like a battered woman candidate. ;) More on that later!

Happy Valentine's Day and Year of the Tiger!

I need those pictures too! I want to post my "Awesome Jungle Weekend" with as many cool photos as possible! *heart sparkle star*

Heh.. someone thought I had accidentally stapled myself with a staple gun becuase of the bite on my thumb.... what did you get? XD

Hehe! Since I work from home and no one at the gym has been brazen enough to mention them, I haven't gotten any interesting comments on what mine might be!

OK well.. then let me help you with that.

Oh my Fox! What are all the puncture wounds from? Have you and your husband started getting into the S&M?
Don't tell me.. you were attacked by VAMPIRES!!!

I was attacked by... S&M Vampires!

What a pretty CAG. :D

I read the bio on the her page, and I was wondering how her disabilities effect her housing and her ability to play? All the greys I've had contact have been very foot play orientated birds, so I was just curious. I'm always curious. XD

Also, that second pic on her page....wow. I love that crazy look they get when pinning their eyes. XD

Though she's only been with us a short time, I've had the luck of knowing Vegas since she was fairly young. Through physical rehab work she's come a long way! She now has a pretty normal cage but with platforms for her to rest on - she can finagle herself onto a perch and hold loosely with one foot (she balances her 'butt' on the rest of it - but she can't perch like a normal bird. She doesnt hold food/play with toys with her feet - they are too crippled for that. She mostly uses her beak for touch/play - but truthfully she's nowhere near as 'playful' as most parrots I know. She likes to shred up paper, pick at colored beads, and occasionally work on a toy, but she's not a typical parrot in those regards. She gets around really well on her own, now, though, and can feed herself - which is wonderful!

Aww, that's pretty amazing! She sounds like such a sweet, well adjusted bird. :D

Mbala posted pictures similar to this one already. :D I'm glad you've gotten use out of my gift, instead of it just being another piece of clutter.

The Megaminx Dodecahedron--not a Rubik's product--is actually easier than the Rubik's Cube, though it looks more difficult at first glance. I'm less impressed with the fact that Vegas can solve it and more impressed with her ability to turn the faces in the first place! Or did she dictate her moves to one of her human housemates?

You were bitten by tigers? You are almost too cool.

I'm amazed!
She controls us telepatically.

Mbala wanna cracker!

I am slowly warming myself up to more complex moves, but I'm not flyyying yet. :) I'm taking the puzzle to work to remind myself that proteomics is actually very easy. :)

I know this is a rather late reply and slightly off topic, but I was wondering through your website and was just wondering if you still had the 2 aracaris?
