Our Bird is Crazy

The other night, Bald Man was doing the dishes. Meeko does love to watch and sometimes dip her beak or a claw in the water. Yeah, well, she decided to mix it up a bit. Bald Man had his back turned and Meeko decided to try a bath in the greasy, soaking lasagna pan.

I think she thought she looked HOT in orange. But we were concerned about the detergent and grease all over her feathers, so she got a shower of a lifetime, along with twice being scrubbed down with Dawn.
My poor little, scrawny, white, chicken.

Her chest feathers are still slightly stained orange, but otherwise than that, she seems to be suffering from no ill effect. She continues to be fully flighted and we are learning to deal with it, and so is she!

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Dawn: not just for ducks who have paddled through oil spills. Y'all should see about getting her into a Dawn commercial. My kids thought the "dirty birdie" was HILARIOUS. Except that now they want to give our bird a bath. Our bird says to tell Meeko THANKS EVER SO MUCH for that, btw.

Doesn't look like she cared too much for the bath. I wondr if she learned anything.

Ha. She looks so pleased with herself in those pictures where she's sauce-covered. She's saucy. Ahhaha! Bad pun, sorry.
