Yesterday, I transported Henry to his new home. He was very calm in the crate, not at all nervous. Originally, the plan was for him to remain separated within his new chicken yard during an introduction period, but he did so well he actually went right in with his new flock.
I was out on the lanai talking and singing to our Blue & Gold Macaw, Tucano. While I was singing “I love you a bushel and a peck”, she chimed in with the biggest imitation of a human burp you ever heard. All I could do is laugh.
I love this boy. Captain Jack and Japura, his partner in crime were victims of severe neglect. In addition to the horrendous feather plucking he endured he also suffers from ruptured air sacs. Despite his issues he is a happy old man.
Our Scarlet Macaw, Mucushi, is opinionated, bossy and always entertaining. She marches to the beat of a different drummer (but then, so do I). She is smart beyond words and, like most Scarlet Macaws, has a “look at how beautiful I am attitude”. Mucushi is totally unpredictable.
