Tiels sure aren't picky are they!!! I decided last night to put Minnie and Ollie in one cage and Georgie and Lee in another to stop Minnie from plucking Lee, they all seemed to do fine through the night a few squabbles from Georgie and Lee but nothing major just Georgie being Georgie :p no calling or screaming from any of them, so I took Ollie and Minnie out to shower this morning and I had them up on the shower curtain and there goes Ollie they were on opposite sides and he scoots right across at full speed stops in front of Minnie and starts singing so sweetly to her they were side by side with his head right over hers which I have never seen before with these two his neck is stretched right out standing so tall and she is down low no not in a mating position just sitting low and she has her head tilted to the side just listening to him sing to her :blink: and I am thinking oh no you two better not start now but its all good when Ollie leaned in a little two close she let him she didn't bite him which I was surprised at but she did open her beak and hiss at him so he backed off, Ollie must have thought he hit the jackpot Georgie has never let him get that close, its funny how quickly Minnie got over not being with Lee :lol:

Hey Plukie are you really sure you want to get a female for Dooby :rofl:

or a horror show in some cases :p

Well I think Minnie and Ollie are getting along a little to well :eek: My daughter came down and was telling Ian and I she had them out and filled the sink with some water and the two were splashing around in the water and Minnie jumped on Ollie's back and was riding around on it :eek: then she says mom Ollie didn't seem to mind it either :p I have to say I am a little surprised Ollie and Minnie have never gotten along and I never even saw her get that close to Lee who she does like so that was a shocker...hehe now if only Georgie and Lee would get along those to aren't fairing as well Lee keeps going at her and chasing her away :rolleyes:
Lets hope they all don't get too friendly :p
No!!! we don't want that either :p I just want them to tolerate each other
I wouldn't worry about Minnie going for piggy back rides on Ollie, i would only worry if they switched and it was Ollie on Minnie's back. :p Snickers spends a lot of time riding around on Cookie and Bailee. :rofl: If they happen to be sitting where he wishes to sit, he doesn't try to fight them away, he just jumps on top of them.
LOL... Bea thats what Ian said good thing its not the other way around :p I would have loved to of seen it though, my daughter said it was the funniest thing with Minnie standing up on his back riding around and it didn't seem to bother Ollie any, she said she took Minnie off she didn't want her to scratch his back :lol:
