Well the covers coming off, a bit more respectable time. I said I would get him trained. It's still dark though and I should still be asleep, Hmm room for improvement in the wake up time I think. Same routine as yesterday, he as changed the water for me. Hang on it's a different colour. He's put them vitamin drops in. Oi! what you doing with that hand in my cage. Oh, he's taking the fluffy feathers out of the seeds.
07:10 He's back with his coffee so I'll have my breakfast.
07:15 What's this? He's reading all the news on that computer, and, he's supped his coffee. Looks like he's settled for the day. Now I've had my breakfast of seeds, had a drink of water I'm going to sit here and stare at the back of his head, he's sure to turn round and start talking.
Note from the slave: What the master doesn't know is I have placed a mirror of my own so that I can keep an eye on the goings on in that cage. Hee, Hee, sneaky or what.
09:00 Something is stirring, oh! oh! the card table is coming out and I know what that means. Yes, here he comes hold on to the perch. I just wish he would make less noise when he unclips the cage. Here we go, hold on tight. Weeee! we have descended onto the table. Off he goes with the cage bottom. Whilst he's cleaning the mess I have made I'll let you into a secret. That slave has put a mirror up so he can watch, what he doesn't realize is I can watch him!
09:10 Shhh! here he is, hang on to the perch again, weee! back onto the base of the cage again. Clunk clunk, just as noisy putting thr clips back on. I say he does a nice job with that cleaning. Phut! there that's a nice poop for you. Now it looks like home
That's it for now he's gone back in the other room cleaning the stray feathers that have got in there. I'll keep him from getting bored. I'm off to my favourite perch and get some zzzzz's He won't start that hoover thing in here whilst I'm asleep. He's learning.
What a morning I've had. It is such hard work all this napping. I'm just so chilled out I think I froze the perch. The slave seems to be soooo busy with his computer and no time for me. Not that I am that bothered at the moment. The sun is shining it's lovely and warm. Just right for eating, drinking and napping.
You're doing a grand job of keeping him busy and alert while you put your feet up, as it were.
My slave isn't as clever as yours when it comes to surveillance, and I've found a good strategy for stopping my her from getting on with anything useful is whenever she seems to have settled down with a book or something like that is to make a slightly unusual noise - perhaps rattle a food dish or headbutt a toy. It doesn't matter how much she needs to concentrate on what she is doing, she can't resist looking round to see what is going on.
This trick is most fun when she's trying to meditate before breakfast.
You're right there Birdguhl, I'm keeping him on his toes. Actually I have left him alone for this afternoon because he looked rather busy. I took the time to pamper myself, it's these flipping pnnies. I've got 'em all over the place again. I have spent ages staring at the back of his head most of the afternoon. I even tried singing to him. Now usually he would join in, today, nothing. He must be really cheesed off with me or something. I bet that Skysmum has been talking to him again. Well she ought tell him to start talking to me again. Blimey it just spoke. I didn't recognise the words but I think it was something to do with the computer. Not right good at multitasking them males. Hee Hee. I'll be back later.

Awwww Joey , i will have a little word with your slavemaster.
OHHHHH SLAVEMASTER , hello, now then what's this about you not talking to Joey . I always spoke to my buds when i passed by or when i was changing their cage over and always left the radio on low for extra company . Does he call out to you when you leave the room.

I think I need to put the record straight. Joey is the slavemaster, Oldpecker is the slave.. Oldpecker is doing the typing because Joey can't do it yet. The slave does talk to me (Joey) as he passes the cage. He doesn't have the radio on because he doesn't have one. Stingey or what. I don't mind as long as there is something going on. He cleaned out the cage today, which was very nice. I pooped in it as soon as he had finished. Tomorrow we start on day three you know. He has to start getting all pally again. No fingers in the cage yet though. He can clean bits but he mustn't start trying to get me to do any up! up! until I'm ready.
Note from the slave. I put the bit in about you Skysmum, to liven the conversation up a bit. Sorry to give you the wrong impression. :-[No he doesn't call out for me. He never has really.
Day 3 The cover is coming off, I've no idea what the times as I don't have a clock in my cage. You thought I was going to say that I can't tell the time. Anyway it's a bit lighter this morning. Hey up I'm on the move. He's put the cage on the table again. Actually I think I like it here. He can't ignore me. Ooooh, I've just had a right good scratch at my backside and a clump of poop fell off. It hit the grid at the bottom of the cage like a brick, ding. That woke him up. Oi! it's no laughing matter. Time for some breakfast now, he can get his own.
