Jimbo's home

Hi All

     This morning I had to go and buy a stand for Jimbo's cage as it is a different size base to my old cage. I had put him on a table over night but this was too small in hight. All the poor thing could see was chairs. This was ok for a night but it must have felt closed in during the day. Off I went to Rainham's pet shop only to find that they can get them but don't keep them. Not good enough as I wanted to get his today.

I was on my way to where I got Jimbo and then remembered the there was one on the way. Twydell Green has a pet shop. In the shop was a helpful lady along with the owner. As they only had one type of stand so it was lucky that it was the one that I wanted.

This is the silly thing, the shop in Rainham sells birds and cages but no stands. The shop in Twydell doesn't sell birds but sells cages and stands. The shop in Gillingham where I got Jimbo sells both. I should have bought one yesterday but there is nothing wrong with the old stand and I would have liked to have kept it.

I had to fill the base with sand so that is stood up ok. This done it was time to move the cage. That wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be as he stood on  his perch while I moved him.

Jimbo new home

Having move him about he did not go much on it but later after he settled again in make a few noises and had a bite to eat. I think he is now starting to settle and if I don't disturb him for a day or two he will start playing.

This afternoon I went for a walk at Riverside. It was warn but you still needed  a coat on.
It was three hours before hight water, this is a little late as the birds have moved out or have not come in. I did not bother with the 400 but took the 300.

I am not sure what these are up but there may have been food on the water

This one is what I think is the best

    1. PS
      Jimbo got out of the cage this morning. I pick him up and he showed his displeasure by sinking his beak into my finger. I thought I had set him back a few days but no he dived into his millet and even gave a call. He is not moving very much but he is looking all around him and is alert.

      Late last night he started playing with his bell. He has just let out a squawk so maybe he has eaten all his millet.

    2. Well bone Jimdo, give him some stick and show from the start who's in charge.
