6 days later with the Green Cheek egg layer

No more eggs. Koi Monkey has been charming. She hasn’t been goofing off in her previous nesting location and is very active and outgoing. She talks to me all the time and we banter back and forth with our birdie phrases. Sometimes she wants to hang out with me personally, and sometimes she hops on […]

Koi Monkey’s egg-laying adventures

We may be quieting down on this issue after re-arranging the cage. I don’t know that I see her swelling up with another egg inside. She’s in good spirits, and loves to see me and have a chat. She has this naked patch down her breast where the feathered have been removed, but she’s not […]

Egg laying continues in all female flock – Phone consult with vet tech

By accounts, Koi Monkey is likely to lay an 8th or 9th egg by the weekend. It looks like she’s started plucking her feathers from her underbelly, but I haven’t seen those little feathers in her nesting bowl. Any time I put bedding in her nesting bowl, she takes it out. She’s starting to bulge […]

Is your cat driving you nuts?

My eldest male, Tommy Gargoyle, really has his days sometimes. They were on hiatus for a great deal of time because he was on Prozac for over a year. He was so pent up with anxiety that he was spraying everywhere, everyday. I decided in December to take him off, and see what happened. Today […]

Guinea pigs are amazing little fuzz butts

It took an extra week to get to cleaning the pig pen after I caught a cold. They do try to take care of it themselves, if they have everything else they need. When the guinea pigs are soiling different parts of their pen, they start dragging hay around the pig pen and lay it […]
