Bird Seed, etc.

I love the bird seed the Tall One left for us! I noticed that she got a big plastic tub before she left, and I watched her pour bird seed from different bags in it, along with some colorful tasty things she called pellets (I especially like the green ones). She mixed everything very well. Then, I watched her stack bags of millet spray and honey treats by the tub. I still had some of those in my cage, but I really wanted to try some of the bird seed mix. I did not want to be rude, though. So I was delighted when she filled up my dish with a sample of the mix. It was sooo good! I love the sunflower seeds a lot; they are so big!

Now that the Cool One is taking care of me, he fills up my dish with the yummy birdseed and makes sure I have millet spray to eat. Of course, I eat in a very mannerly fashion, and I chirp my thanks. Miss Prissy, on the other hand, is still too preoccupied with the pink things to thank anyone or really enjoy food. She just gulps it down and returns to the things. I am hoping she will soon be back to the way she was when I first met her. I sing for her quite a bit, but I am not sure if she appreciates it. Well, it probably takes her a while to get used to me. I am a patient bird, so I will wait.

You are a very polite cockatiel, indeed! You thank your Tall One, and wait patiently for your treats. I've never seen CC-man act like that. He grabs for what he wants and screams till he gets it. Of course, I do that too a bit. Mom calls it acting "spoiled", whatever that means!

Mom says Carrera needs to keep being sweet, and not get spoiled like us.

Thank you, T-Man. I think it's important to be polite, especially when people treat us well. My previous human did not even spend enough time for me to even be polite!

Carrera, You are a good bird. Miss Prissy will get tired of sitting on the eggs. Then you can be friends.
