Very cute :heart: Let me tell you about my Toos . My Rb2s were way different than my white Toos . really want your attention [with their pink puffy cheeks]. But they want to do their own thing . My goffin and Ls2 are the show offs want lots of attention and scritches. But the one who cuddles the most like what you read about Toos is the Eloanoria . Big to me but he is a medium size Too. I believe the real cuddlers are the bigger Toos.

I am gathering he has calmed down now and you don't have to hide under the table anymore?

Rosie, my Galah was cuddly, that is when she could keep still for 2 minutes  :hehe2:

Sassys Daves bird, he will snuggle with him all day  smile3. When we first met him ,his owner had a leash on his ankle. We could not understand why,she sent it with us . We understood why now . She used to take him everywhere and would have that on him so he wouldn't fly and attack people. She had done this all his life [hes 25 yrs old]. We decided to have it on him at night when he was hanging out with Dave[ and we wouldn't have to hide upstairs  smile3 ].I don't believe in those ankles things. But it helped us work through his issues . Now he doesn't wear it . I was afraid we were going to end up with bites that needed stitches. Now hes Daves favorite bird and loves him to death . So we figured him out. Im happy that he has this relationship with him . His owner was so sad to have to get rid of him [her baby for all those years].She had bad breathing problems. Good thing he ended up with us. I don't think people would have even tried with him [or knew what to do ] He might have had many homes  . Moral of my story do not spoil your male white Toos  :grin:

Terri, you are so correct, the big Toos are so easy to spoil. We spoiled ours when he first came to us, took an awful lot of time to unspoil him, a lot of blood. By spoiled I mean making him so dependent on us he didn't know how to play on his own, but hey, we were new to all this. Now 13 years later we have a beautiful, crazy, well rounded dumpster chicken who knows how to play by himself. Gotta love those U2s!

Did you know most people give up their Toos within 10 years? Just a tidbit of info.

You think its because  they have hit their maturity by then ? Or is it maybe its because any issues like screaming ,biting ,plucking are full blown by then.

Noise, maturity.  Believe it or not many birds don't pluck until they hit a bird rescue, they can't take the chaos of a rescue, yet many others start for a whole host of reasons. Powder started after we were robbed, but has since stopped entirely after a year and a half of plucking at his legs. He's fully feathered and full of piss and vinegar!    :heart:   Believe it or not his hormone seasons are not bad at all, he just gets a bit nippy, so at 15 he's not bad as U2s go. I'm told they mellow out as they get older.............I'll believe that when I see it.   :lol1:
