Thank you for your kind comments.

Keeping Norm happy (and therefore fully dressed) is a tall order. He is my constant companion. I have not left him alone for more than five hours and have never gone away, not even overnight, without him. That means I do miss out on alot of things for his wellbeing, but it is my choice and I would not have it any other way. He can go from totally happy and chilled out to a very distressed state in a matter of seconds....I would love to know what causes this metamorphasis....guess I never will though.

I do hope that I will soon be able to leave him for maybe 24 hrs. I have a goal of next July, when my best and oldest friend is getting married in the Midlands. I would love to travel up for that, stay overnight and come back the next day. The way he is improving I feel this will be no problem. I will of course only leave him with Sharon H so I hope she will be free for that

You could always take him with you and overnight him with Shaz? Just a thought.

I will make sure that I am free for that Mrs L as long as you give me plenty of warning. Normy can come and stay here or I will even go and stay with Norm if that is easier for everyone. I wouldn't dare take him to Shaz's. Either he'd shack up with one of hers, or you'd never get him back off her, but a visit to the Porthill flock is a must if you are in the Midlands!

Well, another year has whizzed by and today is the fifth anniversary of Norm being here at No1. The transformation over this year has again been remarkable. Yes, the feathers come and go, hardly ever the latter now Our bond and trust has strengthened and Norm is altogether a more settled girlie. She did surprise me back in Sept by laying three eggs which she decided to sit on for an amazing 7 weeks, leaving them only to come out her cage for a poo, a wing stretch and a little sunshine and fresh air. She soon wanted to be back with her eggies though. Sadly, when she gave up on her eggs, she had developed a nasty skin infection which is still being treated. She has gone through a lot of pain and discomfort, which sadly continues, but not even once has she tried to bite me when she has been having her twice daily baths and meds. Thanks to Shaz for her help and support and of course our out fab avian vet Ian.
