    Bird sitting Tikki

    I am lucky that my daughter lives within walking distance to my house because I get to see her and Tikki my grandbird all the time. He comes and stays with us often for day trips so he can fly and be spoiled rotten here but this time he came to stay for 2 nights of fun and freedom. He lives with of course my daughter and her husband but also two dogs and two cats so he does not get to come out as much as my daughter likes. He gets to come over here for his exercise and fun time. Tikki loves his baths and everytime you turn on any water in the house he will come flying right to it. This morning he took a soaker so I decided to take pictures.

    Here is my sweet Tikki

    He looks like a little rat bird when he is soaking wet


    Preening himself all up to look pretty for the camera


    He is one handsome little bird and he knows it so he of course poses for the camera

    Tiki is adorable Deanna. I would spoil him too. I just love how he poses for the camera.

    He really is stunning and sounds like he has a great personality.

    What sort of conure is he again? I don't know these types too well, I interacted with a sun...almost $700 but he was exceptionally smart.

    Tikki is a Pineapple green cheek conure. He is a real charmer and super smart. He can do tricks, he spins, he dances by swaying back and forth and "gives you five" lifting up his little foot so you can tap it when you ask him. He also has quite the vocabulary and my favorite is he will give you big smacking kisses out loud when you ask him to "give me a kiss".

    He is staying another night tonight with us and then tomorrow he goes home. I just love this little bird like crazy but the best part is I get to spoil him and boy do I ever do that and then send him on home to the kids.

    Yes he is smart and that look he was giving me was also the look of "just try to get me to step on your finger". He flies way up on top of his hanging gym because he knows I cant reach him up there if I get a chair to get on he flies away to the high curtain rod on the other side of the room. I have to temp him with food to get him down from somewhere and then sneak my hand around him to get him back in his cage.

    Awww, I'm glad you're having so much fun with him

    He's such a cutie!

    (though it still blows my mind a little bit that your little girl is grown up, moved out, and a parront!)


    Thanks Lee for the adorable sig!

    Deanna, tikki is so so beautiful! I'm so glad to see pictures of him, I dont regularly see pictures from you and your grandfids

    You must definitely be enjoying your bird sitting time with little Tikki. It would definitely be fun to spoil the little cutie!
