More about Leo the Meyer's parrot with pictures
Little Leo the Meyer's parrot
Hello again ya'll. Just a short update about Leo and me. I was even able to get a picture this time.
I wrote a reply to ya'll last night, but I don't think I submitted it right our something. Sorry.
(Editor's note: Submissions are often delayed for 12 or more hours before posting.)
Just wanted to tell everyone thank you for all of your nice comments and suggestions for Leo.
Also want to acknowledge my grandson, Dylon. He read Leo's story and has been eager to help in any way that he can, including helping me upload the picture we're subitting today.
Dylon is 13 years old and has been a focus of attack from Leo several times, but is still willing to try to make friends.
I read what Linda suggested about not locking Leo away in another room when people come over and I agree. I had never thought about how that might be adding to the problem instead of helping.
I now have a smaller cage that can be used in the living room when company comes. Keep your fingers crossed.
I also wanted to ask about having his wings clipped. I have not done that and am unsure if I should. Pros and cons might help.
I have talked to the kids about respecting Leo's space and remembering what he has been thru. They seem to understand and except for the youngest, who is 7 years old, (she is still afraid, and unwilling to try again.) We will work on that also.
Anyway, thanks again. I am going to try to submit a picture with this update. Hope to hear from ya'll soon.
