|Message:||vegan555 ypyour heart is in the right place, but going about the rescue swept th you under a rug. thank heavens its temporary, but you need to know what's happened to you so you can salvage the situation.
Your first mistake was getting a 'friend," for Carl," you now have two birds that think they are going to lose their position in the family therefore they do not nor will they like each other, but now you have both, and now you have a dress to cut out model and style if you will. You have to demonstrate and its going to take monnths maybe a year maybe more that they are both loved and that they aren't going anywhere..
you won't be able to have carl out when ginger is out at least for a while, when they are you ne giving up to early. you need friends, people who will give you advice. It's to easy to induct them into a rescue and t these birds right back on the rehome cirecut you just took them off of. Pick up some good books, some local bird experts andhing know they're worth something, now with flustering time, many bites but with work youll have the two best birds you've ever had. please don't give up because yachworth something, and now yoits tough, and your schedule is hectic to boot All I can say is it will be worth it n remember if you need help come here. P.S> you are letting them get away withbeing brats as far as food is concerned. They can be tricked...........
need to te wrthn somett you justeasy ted to be there to supervise.ht. so bele and change up the diet. and no I really believe its good for eiuther bird to be given, donates, sold or what have you to a rescue place.
Its going to be a tough roll for you, but you can get these two birds to behve, perhaps even be civil with one another, but you just rescued them, and I think you are don't him. you can mix, measure other, it would be bad news1
1. who's boss. Carl needs to know you are in charge notfirst thing is don't bring anymore friends home for one or twrote:
