The Feng Shui in the Cage

weather: light rain
outside: 14°C
mood: okay
I swear, userinfoSkippy has gotten bigger since we got her last Friday. I don't understand how she could have been a porky 84g... and she must have been almost 90g before she was weighed for the first time on Saturday too.

It sounds like adult cockatiels can be as little as 70g and still be normal. *shrug* Not freaking out. Not freaking out.

We were rearranging the perches, seed cups and toys in her cage for Feng Shui this morning. =) Based on her habits yesterday, we tried to make things easy to reach and as high up as possible without being ridiculous.

My girl is an Olympic Champion Seed Flinger. Her distances rival World Shot Put records. She'll spazz and spin around. The next thing you know, I have a seed poking into my heel (OOOWW!) in the next room over.

userinfoSkippy was also being a water sprinkler this morning. I put her on the edge of her big water cup. She took a drink first, but then she picked up the water and shook her head, flinging it on herself, the table and everything.
