omg. i dunno if its appropriate to use the word "scandalous" "foxy" "dreamy" to describe the profile of a bird, but she's totally these things...look @ those bedroom eyes!!

Looks like my female. XD Although Hana sadly has a genetic disorder where she plucks out all her tail feathers. My sister saved them though, so we took pity on them and keep a close eye on her. Kenshin is our only one who is polite. Hana likes to bite a lot, and hates me because I remove their eggs from the cage, and the fact that Kenshin loves me annoys her. XD

I've read that when a female LB wants to mate but can't for a reason, she'll get stressed and plucking out the feathers... usually the ones on the chest but sometimes on the tail too...

Do you have a pic of them? :)

Sometimes if they're interbred they also can go a little nuts. So she does it even though she does lays eggs a ton. We even tried putting a little bit of hay in their cage so she felt better. It didn't work. The eggs are always duds though. We just call her crazy anyways, since she beats up her partner, for no reason. :/a I try to make her stop but nothing seems to work. She's content a lot of the time since she stretches her wing and foot out to show it. So I still cannot figure out why she does it. I was told it was genetic and caused by interbreeding. But who knows with her. XD

Sadly no, they just try to attack my camera or eat it. XD And they don't stay still, Kenshin will dance and bop his head and Hana will hiss and try to attack it. So I usually just give up and head bop with Kenshin while Hana pouts in the corner of their cage. XD I might try it when they're sleeping for ya. :3

To put it simply: Hana's a possessive dominatrix with social issues but yet loves to harass my poor dogs. And Kenshin is a huge goof ball who loves to kick the food out of the dish and sleep in the dish. XD When we got them we also had four finches two zebra and two regular.

They were easier to deal with than Hana and Kenshin. Oreo, Cream, Chocolate, and Chip didn't require handling. All you had to do was talk to them and they were happy.

I named them and was on an ice cream kick. Hence the names. XD;

Wait...so Pico's the female, and Pica's the male? The names threw me for a loop. :D Btw, the description "with the lady of his choice" should probably be changed?
