This means I'm stuck with having to transfer 6 wild 'tiels into SOMETHING and then get rid of the woman. Hence, the cockaTOO cage they're now in, and the numerous bloody bites on my fingers. The food dishes do not suit. It's not that there's not enough food, it's that there are huge fights because 3 birds can't share one of these sized dishes. Especially this one wiley female who seems to take joy in causing fights.
All of this is not helped by Zazu the B&G macaw who A) wants to play with all their toys from the top so every once in a while there's a house-wide CLANG when one hits the floor of the cage, and B) If the toys don't suit at that moment, she opens their doors and yanks their food dishes out onto the floor. (She's the dogs' hero!)
And I'm still sick as a damn dog (where did that phrase come from, anyway?) and I'm not in the mood to move enormous cages around and find something to put these birds in. They're fine for now.
If you're at all into Firefly Fanfic, here is an EXCELLENT author. I'm generally a Rayne shipper, but Leven writes mostly for Wash/Zoe. So if you're a fan of the series and BDM, you'll be a fan of this fanfic author, no matter what ship you're sailing.
