PostPosted: Sun Jul 03, 2005 2:59 am    Post subject: Hi all!

Hi everyone - i'm Faye, 22 years of age and from Cornwall in the UK...its a little hard to know what to say because my mum (Muva) has also joined today and pretty much told you the story of our 3 new Kakarikis!
Its horrific what some people will do to animals Not talking and i'm glad we found out about the birds before they were destroyed. The best thing about it is we can, with a little help, change them from being 3 scruffy little things into beautiful, healthy and happier ones.

I have always loved animals and I have to confess I have played a pretty large part in the addition of some of our pets - especially with regard to one of the cats, the Guinea-Pigs and several of the budgies! Still, we love them all- and there is nothing more special than watching eggs appearing in the nesting boxes...then looking forward to seeing them all hatch and change from tiny little pink creatures into fully fledged, beautiful birds!

You will have to excuse my avator picture for a moment as I was experimenting with how to resize and change the format. Once I can get a few photos of the Kakarikis/Budgies on the computer then I can upload them here.

Still, I will leave it here - I look forward to meeting all of you! (->

Thanks for the w3c! Also goes for my mum too.. Thankyou for helping her post in the right forum.

I have done a little more experimentation and have taken some photos of our Kakarikis, changed size etc and uploaded them as avators for mum and myself ... should all be fine now! If it is ok, and I sort out the pics I have taken, could I possibly post a few in the Member Gallery of what the birds look like now? Hopefully as time passes and they get better (again, we hope) I can post more to show the improvement in them...

We may try them on some Chicken today...i'm looking forward to seeing what they make of it!

Cheers,
Cel Wink

I had a look at the pics of your birds in the gallery. Your kakariki don't look too bad. They are obviously not in perfect feather but they will recover soon (good diet and regular bathing). The pied one looks like he might have lost a few feathers on the back of his head to another bird. You could have two males bickering over a single female.

Hi Allen - no, those two are not too bad, looking happier already in fact!
Its the Yellow one, whose pic I have yet to put up who is a little worse for wear. Managed to get some pics of the underside of its wings yesterday, so once I upload them to my computer etc I can put them up. No doubt it could be worse however! I just find it shameful they could not have been looked after properly and had attention the moment they showed signs of a problem beforehand!

Muva was given some good tips on the Pets section about how to treat the mites etc - so fingers crossed Pray and a lot of TLC over the next couple of months and we may be seeing 3 completely different birds! (Now its a case of finding the three of them names!) Wink

Keep us posted on how they recover.

:fun: Try naming them after some of the Lions rugby players, they will be coming back from New Zealand with more than just a few ruffled feathers. l0l/

Ah! The cheek of it! Not talking
Well, way I see it all sports stars need a knock or two to remind them of their humanity and the fact nobody is infallible! Laughing
