    Wow - you don't usually see purple talons with this species!

    Nice one - gotta add that to my list!

    Oh dear ...(many chuckles ...)
    Is that BD's bird? It has the look that only mothers could love ... I think it is an intergeneric hybrid ...a product of imagination running amok and weeee too much time to burn at somebody's hands ...

    BD,

    Please post pictures (of Louis' scars). That way we can compare the teeth length and judge for ourselves.

    Okay Julie, but I am not sure you are gonna like it....


    (Plastic Fingers....LOL!)

    These are what was left when LJA gave Murphy a knuckle sandwich.
    I told him to be nice to my bird!

    Cheers!

    LOL!!! My sympathies to Louis, the bird can obviously take care of itself!

    Louis' right, BD - the teeth are too small. Must have been when Murph was just a wee fledgling...
