Well, Bailee is now a man, yes, a man.
I was being a good bird mummy and making up their seven-layer salad for the week when i heard some noises coming from my bedroom...some funny noises. <_< My hands were all covered in veggies so i told Tim to go make sure there wasn't any funny business going on, and sure enough i hear Tim going "Bailee, stop it! Get off her!" I washed my hands and ran up to see that Tim hand swung the door open and Bailee and Cookie were on the rope perch that swings out with it STILL mating!! They weren't going to stop just because Tim told them to!! >.< I went over and got Bailee to step up onto my finger (yes, straight from Cookie's back) and while Cookie looked a little disappointed that her plot to get eggs had been interrupted, Bailee was sat on my finger with big heart wings and a VERY proud look on his face. He was chattering like a little idiot, i could see he was extremely pleased with himself.
I am quite upset over this actually, although highly amused at the same time! I was really counting on Cookie continuing to think Bailee's a massive loser so that there was no mating and, in turn, no eggs. Now they've got 6-8 hrs every weekday of uninterupted "romance". Poor Gracie! I wouldn't want to be room mate to those guys either. Let's start taking bets, how long before the first egg...? Little devils.
