For me it is getting easier all the time to eat by myself. I am crazy about bananas and mandarins and I am able to crush some seeds as well. I like eating. I still take a long time to finish my diner, but that is partly because I like to play with it as well as eat it. However, I am always very glad to receive some baby formula in the morning and after a long day of playing and singing.
They say that you get used to everything. This is true, but still we miss our Dandy. We phone to the refugee center regularly to ask about our Dandy, and the answers are always the same: Dandy is still in quarantine but fine, he has adjusted well, he has stopped picking his feathers, he is between other Greys, although still in the same cage on his own. We are not allowed to visit him yet, but we will, as soon as his quarantine period is over!
