    Kirby and Skittles

    Well, I figured I'd get straight to it and introduce the fids:

    This would be Skittles. She is the resident "Jell-O" bird. Anyone, anywhere at anytime can scratch her, rub her beak, flip her upside down and tickle her belly. She is approximately 12 years old and probably one of the most entertaining lovebirds I've seen. Aside from ringing like a telephone, or coughing at someone when they're hacking their heads off, she'll lie on her side when snuggling you and I think shred a sheet of paper in just under 5 minutes.




    And this is Kirby. He is the fid who started my love of lovebirds yet also almost deterred me from them entirely. He hates being scratched, will eat your fingers if you touch his toys BUT... will snuggle you to no end. He's definitely a mommy's bird and will swing upside down, go for a ride in the car to the petstore or simply hang out in your hair.



    How I came to own both of them is a long story, but I'll type it all as short as possible:

    I bought Kirby from a little store with the intent of just owning one. He was housed with another lovie who yellow and "overly aggressive" so home he came, just by himself.
    6 months later, my boyfriend's cats went missing and I decided to find him another lovebird (he had his eye on a masked one AKA a cheerio eyed lovebird). I went back to the store where Kirby came from and noticed that the little yellow lovebird was still there.
    Six months and no one wanted the yellow bird. She was fat, overweight, splay legged and SNUGGLY! She came home, chirped once and the two of them were re-united.


    That is my huge introduction! Hope to see more of your lovebird faces around here!

    Welcome! That video was very cute. Booger usually falls asleep if my husband plays his guitar for her, but it would be great if she danced too.

    Very beautiful birds! Kirby is just like my Rowan- a Seagreen American Cinnamon! I love that color! And Skittles reminds of my a mix between my late Re and my handicapped guy Shamus!

    The toy Kirby is on is from Petsmart, but you'll find it in the "Puppy Aisle". It's a teething ring for puppies. It's a great toy, different textures on all three rings and he would spend over an hour every day weaving in and out of it.
