beakertrout: I think this lockdown is getting to Beaker as well. He got covered up twice this morning because of his yelling. He wanted my son to "join the flock", but he was sleeping. Mar 26, 2020 10:58:04 GMT -7

beakertrout: He almost never gets covered for yelling. Today it was just too much. Mar 26, 2020 10:58:37 GMT -7

Haz: My husband usually uncovers Chy when he gets up. This morning he forgot. When I got up, she said, "Hello my darling" to remind me that she needed to be uncovered. Mar 26, 2020 13:12:08 GMT -7

beakertrout: What amazes me is Beaker is smart enough to remember when he sees my son leave and he quits yelling for him. My son says he does the same thing when he hears the garage door closing and he knows I have left. Mar 26, 2020 13:20:50 GMT -7

beakertrout: Beaker is addicted to tea bag tags. He will walk across the room to get at one. What a nut. Mar 30, 2020 8:04:44 GMT -7

chris: Ruby likes tea bags a lot too. If I just give her the paper wrapper that they come in she's pretty happy. Mar 30, 2020 8:39:12 GMT -7

beakertrout: Beaker likes the crunching sound the tag makes as he chews it. Mar 30, 2020 9:24:15 GMT -7

beakertrout: This was horrible. Beaker had his appointment at the groomer and he knew what was up after I locked him out of his cage. I thought I was being smart. Mar 30, 2020 10:27:28 GMT -7
beakertrout Avatar
beakertrout: Beaker managed to figure out how the latch works and unlocked his cage ran back in it and refused to come out. I finally had to get a beach towel and wrap him in it after a good five minute battle inside his cage. The groomer thought it was hysterical. Mar 30, 2020 10:29:46 GMT -7

Jane: I do Monty's beak as he has problems with it and it needs doing very often. I have to wrap him in a fleece with just his head poking out. He is very good during the procedure but he knows as soon as he sees the fleece. Mar 31, 2020 4:39:30 GMT -7
Adele Avatar
Adele: Haha! Beaker knows what's up!! Poor Monty. Does he run when he sees the fleece? Mar 31, 2020 7:29:26 GMT -7
Jane Avatar
Jane: Yes, Monty is the same as Beaker - he knows what is going to happen and tries to run away. He has various problems with his feet and wings though, so he is easy to catch. Mar 31, 2020 8:46:05 GMT -7 *

beakertrout: Thanks Jane, it is comforting to know I am not alone. Beaker was good as gold after all that. What a nut. Mar 31, 2020 10:24:53 GMT -7

Haz: We do Chy's feet between vet visits. I hold her lying on my knee while hubby dremels her toes. She grumbles at first then she's cool. I leave the beak grooming to the vet. Apr 1, 2020 7:41:22 GMT -7
