I just thought it would be intresting to see what each on of your tiels' fear the most...what's that thing they're afraid of all the time.:rolleyes:


Ziggy...nothing I've discovered so far...


Baby...this is a long list. She runs to hide under my hair very often...:rolleyes:

The dryer (not the washer); I have no idea why but I cannot be anywhere near it or she will hide in my hair and start shaking...

Any cats; this is one is pretty normal

Feathers: yes, she's VERY afraid of feathers, esspecially her own feathers and will run like a jet from it...weirdo :confused:

Toys: any stuffed teddy bears- stuffed monkeys, ducks, bunnies, dolls three times her size are ok...anything but bears...


Those are just the basic ones. :) What are some of your's?

I have had Georgie now for 5 mnths and so far I have discovered nothing that she is afraid of unless you want to count Ollie :p
Ollie and Minnie so far nothing that I have seen, I don't think I have had Minnie long enough to know yet.

Seagulls. That's understandable really, they are so big. Dooby sits in the window and doesn't really bother much with the pigeons and magpies, but when a Seagull flies over he screams and flies straight to me for a cuddle. That isn't a problem, but...we live by the sea. We have lots of cuddles.

Also, he tends to flap around a bit when the phone rings.

It is REALLY strange...if a feather comes out or a little puff she runs to me and hides...I tried showing her once that it's hers and harmless..nope- still freaks out..I have NO idea why. Ziggy one the other hand always plays with his fallen feathers...

Same here with my budgies, they fight over a flight feather, especially.
