Subject:Re: My New Gizzy Bird - Cute Story
Message:I dont know much about pet parrots really but Conner Loves to sleep with us  he gets uder the covers and gets all warm and toasty against my chest and he's out for the nite if we let him.

I think Gizzy is gonna be nappin with you even more and more.

Which brings one of my questions to mind,

Is there such a thing as letin your bird out to much ?

What I mean is when we get home from work one of the first things we do is let Conner out of his cage.

We dont put him back in his cage until we go to bed wich is late most of the time.
He sleeps on my shoulder which dont seem to bother him.
Infact if I put him in his cage while we are up he isnt to happy.
If I let him out he's a happy campper sleepin on my wife or I .

He's spoiled rotten with out a doubt but we wouldnt have it any other way.
He will even sleep through a trip to the kitchen for a drink and wont miss a beat.
