you just consider feathers a condiment.

you consider selling the sofa to make room for your new bird.

People ask to see pics of your husband or kids, and you say..."all I have are pics of are my parrots."

Oh yes, and when you run your hands through your hair feeling for anything wet before you go to work.  slaph

YES D!!  dmblaf

you walk through the craft/home improvement store and all you look out for are what parts/things you can use to make bird toys.

you take 20 pictures of your bird and they all look distinctly different to you-but a non-bird person goes "why do you have 20 of the same picture?"

your parrot eats healthier than you do.  you buy the best and most fresh whole foods to bring home to your bird...and watch it throw most of it to the floor.

I could retire if I had a dollar for every time my son opened the freezer and said "Nothing in here but bird food" , slams the door, and stomps upstairs."  laugh

You know you are a bird person when every piece of clothing you own has holes in it even your bra !

You know you are a bird person when your arms look like they have been attacked by rose bushes.

Chance, So TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!...

You know your a Bird Person When ...A 4 yr old child comes to your house and looks and says: I will do Feather pick up for you, Im thinking:cool....I will give them to her for her to keep, later after they leave- I Notice the Scrunched up pile of Feathers and feel offended that she didnt at Least keep them looking nice--- regardless of the fact that she was 4 bugeye

Noticing that you wore your "Bird shirt" in Public, by the dried poop on your shoulder and turn and scratch it off and never skip a beat  (They will never notice :glasses:)

Walk out of a Pet Store, Dying to run to a Bird Show because "They didnt have anything" after spending 35$.

Getting a box in the mail of new Bird toys and the word "Raddle is OK" and you get the same feeling on Christmas Morning....OOOHHHH Goddie,Goodie,Goodie!!!!!!
**** These example are just from the last 4 days!!!  laugh laugh flyingmacaw


Now, I wanna go home and be with my Fids!! loveuk

 :oopse5:Yep when I had my conquer more than once I ran ot door with poop,or worse yet the towel still pinned around my shoulders,or holes in shirt from Birdie Love hehe

I now have a 4 monht quarjer,never had/trained a baby before he has been my son for about a month now,well maybe daughter,don't know.

He does up whe he wants to usually after a glider slide on floor,then will do it a hndred times I think,but in cage ad on top he would rather fight

Sure wish he would start talking,really miss my conquer constant chatter,he was well over 20 years when I got him,he had a most fitting name,Brat!

All I ever ask for is the big 32 oz. bottle of poop-off in the spray bottle. I was very offended when I got jewelry instead of a pet smart gift card for food and fid toys. Great minds think alike....   laffhrd

When you forget your bird was preening on you and go to pick up your kid at school looking like you have a case of severe dandruff. slaph

You save all the feathers in a baggie or such but don't know what you are going to do with them.  Make a new bird??
