Tinkerbell Legacy - Living with a flying parrot

still on 1/4 hs recalls

1045 am , so it was later this morning.

YS at 32.0 // milli at 23.9 // suri at 71.0 // crickets at 30.2

Exercises after morning weighing as usual. Short recalls, intermediate, long recalls, back rubs and body squeeze. The details were like those reported before and therefor not reported anymore. Milli after those exercises at 23.3 gm.

With lower weight, I tried again for hide&seek recalls when YS was in the PC room. I tried for 1/2 hs recall even showing him the suri box for extra enticement, but no deal from him. He needed me to show him at least my hand. If I hold my hand in sight but no voice cues, he would not come. Pure voice cues would not get him coming. My hand must be in sight and I called before he would do recall.

At 1 pm YS was at 33.2 with the milli at 22.6. After feeding him a couple of crickets, the cricket box was at 28.6 gm. Then it was time for Ivan to be let out.

At 3 pm YS was released into the apartment again. After a bout of being around me, he decided it was more fun for him to explore the kitchen and then the PC room on his own. He would do his 1/4 hs recalls but no 1/2 recalls as yet.

At 6pm he was at 34.0 gm. Milli at 20.8, suri at 69.8 and crickets gone and at 27.7 gm


Note: Normal weight range of shama is 28 - 32 grams

She made more toys and took photos of those new toys for YS and the way YS was playing with them.

You can see that in folders

Yingshiong beady toys


The descriptions and captions of those photos will be lost if you use the slideshow, so it may be better if you see those photos one at a time.

If you liked the photos of Tinkerbell and Taiwan, most of those photos were taken by Joy with my camera.
