    Tika's first day and two photo attempts





    Here are two photos of Tika today. I don't know if I did it right. I put the picks up in Yahoo photos, then I used the "insert image" and wrote the urls down.

    SHe opened up to my autistic son today. Not me, but him. Lol. She bopped up and down, held her wings out and made some little sounds. Then she copied our budgies. I'm like "greaaaaaat". But THEN, she let out a song like the red factor canary in the bird place! Aweeeeesome.

    What is their talking capability? I don't care if she says much. But I'm hoping she'll learn something, and that it's a bit more clear than my tiel. My tiel talks and does tricks more than any tiel you've probably met! On the other hand, I put in the same time to my budiges when I got them and nothing.

    Uploading from Yahoo Photos won't work. Try uploading them to Photobucket then using the image tag (IMG) in the message box. The photos will work then.

    As for opening up, WOO HOO!! It's a step in the right direction.

    Okay this should work. Here is my oldest song riding home with our girl. Sorry these are camera phone pics. I can't wait to take "real" pics.

    Nnnt. I copy/pasted the little box that said "tag" on photobucket. Put it in the url bar when you click on the "insert image" button on top of reply forms.

    Your welcome

    Those pictures are fine, I post all mine about that size. It is a pain to change them. I am pretty sure as long as they don't make people have to scroll to see them or distorts the page then they are fine.

    Tika is very pretty... what kind of cockatoo is she?

    I say a Goffins 'too. Looks like you guys are getting along just fine.

    As for resizing, if you want, just click the Edit button over the photo and then the Resize button, choosing "Message board" size. For some people without cable modems, uploading a photo that large may take awhile.

    awww, she's sooo cute! she looks just like my charlie! i pmed you about the poop, but like i said, don't worry about it for the first few days, cuz it's always a bit runnier due to the stress of a new home.

    as for talking ability, 'toos in general aren't known to be great talkers. of course, there are always exceptions to that rule. chances are, you could get her to learn a few words, although she probably won't learn very many or speak very clearly. my charlie just mumbles and jabbers a lot!

    Re: Tika's first day and two photo attempts

    Tika certainly is a cutie. Great pics!!

    one question though...are you quarantining her from your cockatiel and your budgies? It doesn't look that way in the pictures, and doesn't sound that way from what you've said. You really need to do a quarantine of 30 days or so (keep them in different rooms, wash your hands in between handling them, make sure dishes or anything else aren't shared), along with a vet checkup for Tika, to make sure she doesn't have anything Sunny could catch, and the vet checkup to make sure everything's good with her in general.

    Re: Tika's first day and two photo attempts

    I started to quarentine them. I moved sunny in with the budgies and have Tika in another room. We put a huge air filter on a credit card and it's between the two rooms. But, I had read that true quarentining, you really need to be far apart (we can't in this house, even now, they are only 20 foot apart), need seperate air ventilation too as so many things are air born. We cant' do it. We started with the hand washign and thing, but then I further read that it's pointless if you hold one bird, then hold the other with the same clothes on. Between my xtreme eczema, the house, etc, other than the filter and seperate room, we've not done so. I know that is not the right answer. And not PC. But I won't lie.
