    Re: is my bird dying

    Wow, 29 years old! It is so great that he was taken care of so well that he lived that long. Did you set up a platform for him to sleep on at night, or does he still lie on the bottom of the cage?

    Hi,
    I tried to make him a bed at the bottom of the cage but he just messed in it,lolol. He does still sleep on the bottom occasionally but seems to spend more time on his perch now. I have done nothing different.

    Re: is my bird dying

    Hi,

    What is his name? I had a pearl male, Flipper live to be a few months short of 30. It sounds like your fella is getting delayed nesting behaviours with the faviring the corner and getting defensive of the cage.

    Re: is my bird dying

    Merry Christmas to you all from the UK.
    Just thought I had better give you an update.
    Tommy is still very much alive,screeming,shouting & talking.
    He is still sleeping under his food bowls at the bottom of the cage but as soon as anyone comes in he is there non stop singing ect on his perches.
    He does still attack my Husband & we all think it hillareous as he was the one Tommy loved most of all.Now its me.
    Love Tricia & Tommy xxx

    Aww, I just read through this thread and noticed the dates... I was expecting a sad update since he's so old, but I'm happy to find out Tommy's still going strong! He is amazing and inspiring.

    Re: is my bird dying

    awww great
    what a veteran

    It's so nice to hear of a bird who has spent his whole (incredibly long) life with one loving family. Especially such a handsome bird!

    Do you think he would use a wire perch thing? I've got one here that Sammy (typical lovebird) hates and throws out of the cage every opportunity. I took the hint and it's now sitting at the bottom of a drawer.

    PM me if you want it x

    it's the small one on here http://www.petdiscounters.com/Movabl...orms-p873.html


    Thanks Lee for the adorable sig!

    Re: is my bird dying

    What a great update, I am so happy Tommy is still happy and attacking your hubby, means he still has lots of spunk in his for a old man. Your definitely doing something right to have Tommy for all these years, must be such a great thing to have a bird for that long.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    I was so nervous reading through this thread and watching the dates go by on the older posts. I'm so glad to hear Tommy is still around and happy and being noisy I wish we could all have our tiels live that long and be so happy!

    Re: is my bird dying

    You could just upload it to your gallery for everyone to see, then you could copy and paste the picture or whatever here.

    1. Just go to your profile
    2. Click create an album
    3. Click Upload Pictures
    4. Browse through your documents until you find a picture you want
    5. Double-click that picture to start uploading it
    6. Wait until it is done uploading (Which could take a while) and then name and describe it

    Hope this helps, I really want to see a picture of him!
