Lilo is so cute looks exactly like my baby (5 month old one lol) Yep i
slip up with ages all the time so many children and all so cute.
I firmly believe in clipping wings to my African Grey is clipped but for
some reason Duckie is so much happier flying around and playing catch with
me she was very unhappy when i did have her clipped so now they have grown
