These loving beautiful creatures are such a blessing. Educating people about what they can do and how to bring out the best in them is definitely a big issue. Magi

A nice journal. Enjoyed reading. It's so nice you are able to do these wonderful things for the unwanted/neglected/abused birdies out there. In the past I had a room dedicated to bird rescues. They are alot more work then even my horses. I had up to 26 birds at one time and as with you have been able to find excellent homes for them. Only 1 bird in all my years of doing this has come back to me and replaced that guy in a great permanent home. I am down to my own birds now. I enjoy them very much and thank God everyday for being able to care for and be owned by all my critters.

It just takes time and love. They learn simple commands like "that's not your toy" when munching on my textbooks or various paperwork, "get that bell!" when playing with a favorite toy, "ah!ah! no sir/mam!" is always a cute one for then I hear it back when I do something they don't like. "can you take a bath?" or "where did you pooh?" teaches them the clean routine in just a few patient trips - you have to show them they poo-ed and take them to their cage or the trash for the end result ( I fuss a little as I let them see me wipe it up and then take them and it to the cage or the trash for proper deposit. ) They have the intelligence of a dog so they learn quickly. It is funny to them from time to time. Boe Boe laughs at me when I do this he thinks me fussing is funny, but he is a little mischievous to begin with. Magi
