Charming Lucy

I've been posting mostly pictures of Scooter lately but Lucy has been getting her share of attention as well.

Hubby took these charming photos of Lucy with one of her favorite "foot toys".

She is just like a baby with the way that she likes to explore the world - everything goes in her mouth first. Whenever one of the parrots is doing something I don't want them to do, I hand them a toy to distract them. It works really well.

Simple toys like these are very much loved by our parrots. They have a variety of foot toys - ones to be chewed up, ones with funky textures and shapes, noisy ones, soft ones etc. Anything new and colorful is a welcome addition to their toy basket in the play area.

Lucy loves to try to remove the colored plastic rings. After a while when she can't get them off she loves to drop the toy on the ground. I think she likes the sound it makes. It's noisier than most of the other foot toys she has!

So the toy distraction thing works with parrots, too, not just kids and cats? ;)
