My hubby took the day off to catch up on some things around the house. One of those things was mowing. So, when I leave for work this afternoon I ask him if he wanted me to leave the birds out and he said yes that he was home and there was no need to put them up. Something we always do. Well, he went out to do some yard work with Frankie (quaker) on top of his cage and Lucy (eclectus) on top of hers. They don't usually get off their cages when we are outside -- inside too for that matter.
Well, Jerry came in and noticed what he thought was a rat in our bedroom. He said he was close to standing on a chair. lol. Then he realized Lucy wasn't on her cage -- nor was she in it. He went into the bedroom to get a closer look at the rat and discovered that this particular "rat" had red feathers instead of fur.
Yup, Lucy went on a walk-a-bout unsupervised. Needless to say, she got herself locked up in her cage until I got home. Jerry said that when he put her back in her cage she actually hung her head like she knew she was in trouble.
