poop, seed, and pellets are just part of your new dress style.

The pocket of every pair of pants you own contains bird treats. Okay maybe this is just me.

It doesn't phase you to drink/eat after your fids, any more than it did/does to do so after your kids.

Pellet crumbs and seed husks in the bed.

Keeping your birds right next to your bed isn't a good idea.

When your teenage daughter gets mad at you because she's been walking around with bird poo on the back of her shirt all day and you didn't tell her about it ... because you didn't even notice it!

When you make a smoothie for yourself and realize there's something in it the bird shouldn't have and run back to the blender and make them their own little birdie smoothie (this didn't happen this morning or anything)

LOL seriously...it's just for nap time Wink

I put chocolate powder in my smoothie this morning, forgetting that the little fluff ball begs unashamed until he gets some. I couldn't just watch him flutter and stare at my glass.

- when you go to dollar store and instead of aluminum foil, you bring toys/toy elements for your fids
- when you don't have to set up alarm clock in the morning
- when you buy elements for parrot toys in craft store instead of something for you
- when you put in your browser word:"parrot forum"
- when you search for the same crazy people like you, because you feel only they will understand it
- when you lay to your bf about price you paid for parrot/cage/accessories
- when you coming home and your first words are: Hi birds!
- when you put laminated floor in your all apartment area just to have them everywhere Wink

Too funny. Anymore, the birds sound off when I open the door or disarm the alarm and the next thing is "Hi Birdies!" usually followed by "Hi Kitties" and then my husband, "Well what about me?"

Ummm...we're moving to a new-to-us house in a few weeks and already scheduled a flooring guy to come in to redo the bird room floor (additional bedroom upstairs) in laminate for easy cleaning.

I mean, the rug had to come out ANYhow...

And we chose our house based on the floor plan and space allowing us to have a more favourable toy creating area and extra storage space for our ever increasing stock of supplies...

Does this make us weird?

When the bird bites your husband and you are more worried about the bird than the husband? Or is that dangerously headed in the direction of "Single Parront".
