    I love them to death :) They're brother

    and sister and they still had a baby together. Crazy birds. They're ringneck doves and always strike the weirdest poses when I try to take pictures of them! This was a lucky one

    Hates Me

    I've had a bird (named Skyler) who hates me. He has hated me forever. I've had him for more than a year and TRY to train him everyday and he still hates me whenever I get close to his cage he goes to the other side of it.

    Snuggle Spot

    There is this perfect spot on my face that my bird fits perfectly in. Right next to my nose, hugging  my cheek. When she locks into that spot, we connect so intensively.

    Men

    I really hate bringing guys around my bird. When I have questionable feelings about a guy, she does an annoyed chirp every two minutes. When I don't want to be around them anymore, she just has such an attitude. She's a very emotional bird. I can relate to her so much.  I...

    Nipping

    Rosie keeps nipping at me. It feels like she's frustrated with me. What should I do? I've never had such a fussy bird before. My last bird was a Quaker Parrot. He didn't have an attitude at all. Rosie is full of attitude for such a little thing.
