The convention has finally come to an end. Of course they have enjoyed the program, but they really hate to leave me for such a long time every day! I have to admit though: the very second that they are back every night, they overload me with attention again. Besides, I have heard stories of birds who lead such a life every day... and even they can be reasonably happy when treated well!
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!
