When I was young, my dad had a cockatiel. He would open the cage door every morning and he would walk out and then fly around the house for a few minutes. Exercise, I guess. Then land on my dads shoulder no matter where he was. He sh-it on my dads eggs one morning and my dad just wiped it off and kept eating them. I was like wt-f!

Petey has become aggressive! He has started hitting me when I try to pick him up.

He loves to hang out on the carport on top of a moving blanket .



When I reach for him, first he raises one wing asa warning, then he lets me have it with the other wing. Like a dove punch. Then he pecks me.

He knows you went dove hunting, bet he don't pull that on the Mrs.
