Sleeping Pippin by emmil Sleeping Pippin by emmil
The only bird I have that I can still flip over like this and enjoy some head rub while laying on her back. She's really a sweet heart, she will not bite hard whenever we play. I can also put her on the sofa like this: [link] :)

What about Papao, you ask? I used to do it to her when she was a baby: [link] but after she was weaned & started to live in a colony cage, she won't let me do that to her anymore. Best I can do is giving her a head rub but she doesn't want to be held. Anything others than her head is off limit. She thinks being pet is childish, so she wants to pet me instead ... :XD:

Would you like to buy some calendars of my lovebirds?

That is soooooo sweet! My budgie, Buster, rolls on his back by himself whilst playing with his favourite orange pom pom ^^ but he doesn't let me rub him unfortunately, but he gets lots of kisses from all my family, haha.

I do, but it won't let me copy and paste the link for some reason, sorry. I wish I could show you as it is really funny. How many birds do you have by the way? It looks like a lot, my budgie a handful on his own, lol.

I have 7 lovebirds now. 3 are kids from my own pair. :)
I used to have 4 more, but 3 have gone to rainbow bridge and 1 flew away. :cry:

Oh wow! I bet they keep you busy! :D Oh no, that sucks, we have to be so careful in the summer months not to have our door open when his cage door is open, I nearly forgot a couple of times, as he is out of his cage all day.
What is rainbow Bridge? Is it some kind of bird sanctuary?

They have to really trust you to go onto their back. I managed to get my mom's Quaker almost like this, but it takes a looong time. Oy! And a Parrotlet? Forget it! lol

Well hook beak, sure. Parrot type bird. Just tiny. Much smaller than a lovebird lol

Yea, I'd say they are at most 3/4 the size of a parakeet. Though they think they're a much bigger bird. ;p

Pippin doesn't want her tummy get tickled, she just want a lot of head, cheeks, neck rub only in this position :D

I hope so. Papao often gets jealous if I play with Pippin but it doesn't mean she'll let me pet her then, instead I get an ear pinch from her. ;__;

it was a amazon parrot, quite big and playful. He was always chewing wood, his beak was always sharp, he was not mean, but eventually he would bit just because of it and had a good laugh afterwards. My hand has a few little scars as a memento :)

hmm, true, i don´t have pictures of him online, but i think he deserves to be shown in a Flickr, pictures are in my mother´s house, i can show you in a few days. :)

My dad got him as a gift while he was filming a documentary in amazon, we never planned to have a parrot here in Sao Paulo, but then, he was family.

I´m living in a new neighbourhood, near a big lake and park, i always remember him when we see the dozens of parrots and parakeet flying free in the skies every morning.

So your dad is the one who takes care of him now? Who's the bird bonded to? If it's you, he'll miss you a lot... Btw, so lucky to be able to see wild parrots flying free around your house :)
