Update on Baby!

Post by Mikaela » Sat May 03, 2008 11:40 am

Hey Y'all!

Long time - no see! I doubt anyone even remembers Baby and I - but I thought I would drop in in case to let you know how my fella is. His Birthday is May 11th! 3 yrs old! Got that boy at 5 weeks and fed him with a syringe.

He is a very late bloomer - but if anyone here remembers us - you will remember I ALWAYS knew he was a boy. (Really good at sexing visually - not that thats possible but haven't been wrong yet). But - even before I knew anything about birds - I got my Baby and knew from 5 weeks old - when I brought him home - he was a big ol' man!

Well - he is now THREE yrs old! I cant believe it - where does all the time go!? And FINALLY molting and getting that MAN ring! Amen! He looks so awful right now that its just pure funny. As ringnecks are always dressed to the nines... and they know it!

I would like to share some images of how awful he looks so other members can compare him when he IS and ISNT molting so they dont get so upset about how their baby looks. I know I did - first molt. Also, so new owners can recognize the beginning of a molt so they can start relieving it - its hard on them! :cry:
_______________________________

To relieve him - I put him in the shower with me each day and allow the steam to penetrate the pin feathers. He so appreciates that and gets busy preening away the uglies. (just put them on the shower rod or shower head)
Then - before we get out - I get him completely wet with a spray bottle. Then - I put him on his stand on the lania in the sun (90plus here now).

I do this daily to both relieve him and to make the molt hurry a long.
__________________________

He is so ugly he is precious. He looks SO thin - as they all do when molting - and he has always been so active and more on the slender side anyway.

But - if anyone remembers me and would like to see Ol' Baby again - let me know and I will throw some images up for you!

Qwennie? Are you still around? Does anyone know her? I come honestly - mainly to find her. We lost contact.

Ah! One more note - I tried to PM her and it said 'cant send PM's'. I was wondering how to get my PM activated? I dont know who is running the show as Admin and I couldnt PM anyone to make this matter private even if i did lol.

Anyway, if you wanna see Baby - let me know. Many of you here some 1 to 3 years ago - I would love to catch up with. A select few, however, I hope to never run across again hehe. But thats neither here nor there - like I said - I will also post some shots of myself recently and my ugly lil bird - if anyone remembers me and would like to catch up! Let me know!

Peace, Love and Tolerance,

~ Mikaela :wink:
