Mr. Maggie as we have come to call him not only whistles but he croaks like a frog!:confused: I searched through the house last night thinking for sure there was a frog somewhere. Here is Mr. Maggie in his cage croaking. Lol!:p
He is so attatched to me though, I love it! Our other birds are fairly tame but I guess this is the dif between hand fed and hand tame.
I was making breakfast this morning and he was there, he must have followed me. He has been sitting on my shoulder most of the day. And he eats everything I offer! I don't have to trick him or anything! Bonus!
He loves his bath, actually jumped in the sink while I was running the water.
I have a question though, if he has seen a vet and passed a vet check, is it safe to bend the quarantine rules a bit? He is so attatched to me, but I don't want to neglect the other birds, and I feel so bad putting him back in his cage to tend to the others:(
Either way, he is such a sweet boy!:D

i've asked the question before about Getting a bird checked out by a vet and then if it comes back clean to break quarantine but I was told no, because there is alot of illnesses, and diseases that don't show up on a Normal check up from the vet. it would have to have an intense aray of tests to be done.. and if you think about it, having all those tests done, just to bend quarantine is going to cost you tons of money. It's cheaper to wait the 30 days

I know its hard to wait, My tiel has like 12 more days of quarantine left, and I just got a new lovebird today So I'll still have to wait for quarantine to be over... But I can't get any more birds until one of these 2 are out of quarantine - because im out of rooms LOL

He was sitting on our oldest daughters shoulder this morning and started saying "Who's a pretty bird?" over and over! They never said that he could talk, they just said that he was a real good whistler! This is our first talker so I am a wee bit excited!:clap::excited:

How exiting that he talks and entertains you with animal impressions :D Sometimes Oscar makes this weird cackleing sound. It sounds exactly like flipper the dolphin. So now whenever he does it I tell him "Call the dolphins Oscar!" and he will do it on que ;)
I am glad to hear the Mr. maggie has taken such a liking to you. But I would agree with the others that is probably better safe then sorry when it comes to the quarantine. Good Luck!
