If you guessed that they are extremely dusty you are right!  The Cockatoos, Cockatiels and African Grey’s have a special and additional feather dander called powder.  This gives them the nick name as Powder down Birds.

The most shocking thing that Hello had to get use to when I first came to the farm was the huge cloud of dust that flies everywhere when I shake off.  She has had several other types of birds but never a Powder down Bird like me.

If you plan on getting a bird be sure to grab a feather duster.  You will need it as we love to spread the love all around.  Just remember the reason we work so hard at being beautiful is because we do it for you.  We want to be the best looking bird on the block.

There are several things that can be done to knock a portion of the dust down.  One is frequent cleaning around the cage. Don’t have carpet in the room that the cages are in.  Hardwood and tile floors are more common in bird areas.  Consider an air purifier and be sure to change the filter in the HVAC unit often.  No really often!

The easy thing to do and most bird’s love it is Bath Time!  Hello lets me take a bath about every other day.  I love to hide my head under my wings as the water falls on my back.  I look like the headless cockatiel!  Rahhhhhhh!

Doggie Workout!

Today I was pecking out the net and came across this video. I really don’t know what to say. If your New Year’s resolution was to get in better shape don’t forget your furry friend. This is a short workout and a great time to bond. Grab a chair and turn it up! It’s time for a workout!

RD picked the Saints!!!

Here at the farm we felt for sure that it being a pet blog that the natural choice would be the Colts! We nominated RD as the official game forecaster for this year. With two tabs of paper the same size, color and smell he made his selection. The only difference in the two were the words Colts on one and the Saints on the other. RD has a trick that he already knows of guessing which hand the treat was in. You can shuffle it behind your back and he will actually pick the one with the treat. He gets it right about 95% of the time. Today we put the treat in both hands for equal smell and allowed him to see the names. RD selected the Saints to win the Superbowl. Goooooooo Saints! Have a great Superbowl Day!
