Camera-Critters

Camera Critters
It's time again for Camera-Critters! I nearly forgot about it since I have been so busy here this week! Glad I didn't. If you want to join in or want to see other folk's adorable photos, please head over to the Camera-Critters blog and check them out! You can also click on that cute badge at the top of the post to get there.




My post today is of our 24 year old Blue Front Amazon, Chico eating a Ritz cracker. :) He loves them, he also has an addiction to Bojangles' Botato Rounds, Scrambled Eggs, Spaghetti, leftover chicken leg bones and Pancakes. Birds can eat anything we eat (except chocolate, avocado and onions, those are deadly to them) and in fact, feeding them good foods makes them healthier. All of our birds share our meals. As long as you don't use alot of salt whatever you eat, they can eat. Chico, like most of the other animals in our house, is a rescue.

Now, jump on over to Misty's place and check out the other Camera-Critters this week.

Chico is such a pretty bird. I didn't know they would even want to eat "people food."

What a cool bird! I'd love to have one, but we occasionally like to travel. Oh well, I can dream and at least look at great photos like yours.
Happy CC.

Oh he is a beautiful bird, i didn't know that about them able to eat people food, how interesting.I had a parrot once, poor thing got out of his cage one day while we were gone, we came home and the cat came in the house, the parrot saw the cat flew in the air and landed on the floor, dead, he was a young bird that i got from a closing pet store, Never thought it would be so scared of the cat to fall over dead.
I also read your profile, glad to know that others have lots of pets besides me.

I love parrots and have always wanted one. I had a really crazy dream about one the other night, so it was funny when I saw your pictures.

Thanks for all your cool comments on my blog-site. I've wanted to e-mail you but can't find your e-mail address. I could make you a really cool apron to wear for dog grooming. Heavy duty, lots of pockets, washable. Let me know if you are interested.
