    Yeah I think I might just keep him...

    When I first presented Petey to you guys I said that I was fostering him and that if he got along with my flock, he would most likely stay.

    Well he's integrated the flock pretty well. Plus, he has yet to show any sign of aggression to me (he tends to bond strongly to males and attack the other person in the couple) nor has he shown any aggression towards my boyfriend (wasn't expecting any). He is definitively a lot more comfortable with the environment, he's now playing with toys (first few weeks he just sat there, pretty sad), is not taking any crap from Piper (who still manages to boss Joey around) and he's also started to show interest in playing with the others. All of this makes me very happy and I wish things continue to go well.

    Here's a picture of the two of us. He's a bit unsure of the camera but he's definitively starting to relax a bit more around it.

    I had a feeling he'd be staying...especially since you brought him to the club much sooner than expected...
    Now, will he be coming to the meeting on Sunday...

    Well I have to decide between bringing him or Shade...Right now, I'm strongly considering Petey over Shade since she's been a little obnoxious with flying all over the place lately and I'm not sure she'd stay still at the meeting.

    Sure she would...she always behaves there...remember...she's out of her element/comfort zone...

    You surely don't remember the last meeting where she spent some time in her carrier for not behaving..not sure I want to go through the struggle of dealing with two birds at once again...specially when one of them wants to fly to see other people

    He's so cute! I love the yellow on his forehead (Milo still only has a speck of yellow).

    I had a feeling he'd be staying with you, I'm so happy he's getting along with the rest of the flock!

    I still think his beak looks really large, at least compared to Milo's. Or it's like the top section of his top beak of it is larger in proportion to the bottom section, where as Milo's is about equal. I need to get some pictures (the camera never has any batteries) to compare.

    Yay!!! But I secretly knew he would stay too. He looked pretty comfy at the last meeting. Now we can see MORE of Petey!

    See videos of Loki and the boys here!
