Sweet Pea is doing well. She loves having company over and meeting new people!
This week (after all of our quarantine stuff was finally over!) my mother, grandmother and sister came over for our son's birthday. She was the life of the party, and insisted on hanging out on my mother's arm for a while!
She also met a family of puppy adopters, and one of the PAFP fosters, Elizabeth (she sat on her arm too!).
I am delighted that she takes so well to new people. Birds have a reputation for being very loyal to just one person (my lovebird certainly is that way)...
but all birds are different, and Sweet Pea's proving to be a social butterfly- this should help her when she needs to transition to an adopter's home.

She didn't go to the vet for her injection this past week because Dr. Mary Jane was at a conference all week. We plan to take her to Shively tomorrow. During the visit I hope to ask, 'what's next?' in regards to her treatment-intervention-plan for plucking, since she is definitely still plucking.
Knowing she's still plucking, even though we're doing 'everything right,' and that we do love her, has been very hard.
However, I remind myself to not take it personally. I'm in a Facebook support group for owners of plucking-birds, and I've become more involved in a few other bird groups online; forming a community of helpful, knowledgeable people on this issue helps.
Since it's late, and I'm tired, I'll add to this post later (I'll get pics my mom or Elizabeth took with her to add), and/or will write more next week!
