Where do you find the eucalyptus branches? There are hundreds of eucalyptus groves out in the country here. My mom hates them, says they smell like cat pee.

I'm so glad she's getting healthier. Why was her vet against the supplements?

it's easy to give to much of a supplemented and make them sick plus they can get it naturally from certain foods. Rosie needs more calcium so I give her foods high in calcium, she gets dark leafy greens like kale, collard greens, trying to find dandelion leaves for sale, mustard greens are good. For treats I give her almonds which have a ton of calcium.

There are 4 giant eucalyptus trees conveniently in my backyard. Used to be 5 but because they where planted so close together one was severely stunted . Huge trees, they are visible from the front of the house and it's a two story. I can only reach branches on one tree though D: and that's only because randomly on the trunk some little branches grow out. I look up and see gum buts and blossoms I only dream of giving Rosie lol, next time the trees get trimmed I'm going to have a field day.

You're going to have a field day, or Rosie? ;) That's definitely convenient. Hurray for Rosie!

Using a old coconut toy, shredders, and bird foraging paper I made Rosie a brand new toy that doubles as a foraging toy. I broke apart a almond(Rosie’s favorite Treat that won’t go bad in a few hours) and stuffed pieces in various depths of the shredded paper.

:D

Rosie on my niece's head with her Rambo scratch.




My niece loves petting Rosie when her crest is up, she pushes it down and it pops right back up lol





Rosie wants to be on the shower door

Haha, Rosie! I love the "mohawk" look she gets when her crest is up.

I like it too :D Sometimes when I take her places people don't always believe me when I say she's a cockatoo since her crest isn't noticeable when it's down and so I ask her to dance and it pops right up lol People are always surprised by it even when they expect it haha

I especially like when someone is like "look a parrot!" and they come over to see her and ask questions, I just say she's a Galah and leave out cockatoo and when she dances and her crest pops up people are blown away XD She loves meeting people so much and totally shows off for them haha.
