I am giving my awesome grey Sid kudos, and sharing that they can adjust to life changes. After 29 years divorce is imminent, Sid and Pete the quaker and I have moved into a new home. I was so frightened how this would affect them, I had already rehomed my 2 other birds, but Sid and Pete are with me no matter what. I can tell Sid has had some adjustments to make, but he has come through like a champ, even with me working a little longer daily. I praise him like he is the only one in the whole world when I come home at the end of the day, and of course he is the one there for me. Just wanted to share that they do accept changes despite their reputation.
I am glad to hear the move went well, sounds like Sid is being very supportive to you too.
Thank you Jane, Yes Sid is my stability. I don't know who helps who. It is almost a month now, And it is funny Sid and I both have our ups and downs. I know he misses his prior 'view of the pool , his daddy even though he did not really care about Sid, and open floor plan to fly' He still will not step up for me any more, but at night he lets me tickle.(pets until his little eyes close) while he is in his cage. He is free to roam except at night when he is covered. I have faith he will recover. He is eating well ,gets good sleep. and still look really good. The big change is I am gone longer hours to work. Hopefully I can semi retire in 2 more years.
Divorce is sad especially after so many years but at least you have the support of your feathered babies. They will get used to you being out to work longer. I'm sure everything will sort itself out eventually. Hang in there.

It has been 2 months now in our new home, and Sid has finally started to get comfortable, this week is the first he has let me pick him up and give him tickles again. I could tell he has been so lonely and misses his old house and his daddy, even though his daddy did not give him attention. I just tried to show him every day that he was still number one in my world. He has been the one to keep me going at times.What would our world be without them?
