    Aww, he was so cute bouncing around! So he is a feather plucker, huh? That must be hard to deal with...Now, I am not sure this is true, but I recently heard that paper towel rolls are dangerous to birds because it contained zinc or something. I will double check that but I found that info in a Harrisons Bird Food booklet...

    paper towel rolls- most likely, the source was concerned about the glue
    on some tubes, not the cardboard itself. we use a brand that does not
    use any glue to keep the towels on the paper, so the tube is just kraft
    paper. (trader joe's, for all you west coasters! same with their TP-
    100% recycled, unbleached afterwards, and no glue!)



    feather picking- yes, coby is a big plucker. we adopted her at age 10
    (she's now 11 1/2), with this problem (along with others- she was a
    screamer, a perch potato, and did not eat anything but pellets and
    seed). we have managed to "correct" all the problems but this one. it
    is a difficult problem to deal with.



    she has been to one of the best avian vets in the world & had all
    the tests, so we are pretty sure it's not illness, disease, or
    parasites. she is a behavioral picker, and when she's hormonal (like
    NOW!) it's worse. in the winter she picks less, but still picks. but we
    feel she is very happy, and we are cool with her "as is". even if she
    never stops &/or gets back that amazing jenday coloring, she'll
    always be loved for who she is.

    Oh my....I didn't know that about paper towel tubes!

    What fun game, and a cute Coby! Wesley does the same "up and down" dance or jerk with his toys. I love it! :-)

    Coby is Beautiful! I loved the video. I like the part where she tries to put her whole head into the tube LOL I think that birds like the way peoples voices sound when they talk into the tube.... Charlie is obsessed with paper towel rolls too. You should see his eyes when you talk into them lol.
