Hey, hey Snip :)
Your not going to believe this one. It actually did happen. The rest of you will probably get a laugh out of it. Another Luuuucy moment for the books for me! Your Lil' Sweet cakes might want NOT to try the bird feeder idea.
I put one in my birds cage. One of the small treats. Didn't dare put the doughnuts in. If they bumped him in the head it probably would have killed him. Well, we can't have that.. Anyways he took a taste. Never tried it again.
I though he was just getting used to a different shaped treat.
Yesterday Hubby took one to work. Hung it out the window. Birds are always flying around. As the afternoon sun hit it, the honey started to melt. It slipped off the hanger to the ground. One bird stopped to check it out. Sniffed it carefully, jumped all around it. Took one bite. Looked at it again, that lil' sucker hopped backwards as far away from it as it could get. Didn't dare turn its back to it. My Husband was watching the whole thing.
It flew off and told all the other birdies about it. None of them came back!
Could you imagine if it had eaten any more it could have been it's last bite! Poor things beak would get stuck together like glue. LOL!!!
We can't have her making them, then having a classmate come back and tell her, "YOU! killed my Parakeet!!!!" That would be traumatizing.
My husband got a good laugh out of it. We were making jokes about it all night. Too funny.
Yeah they met the trash can today.
Just letting you know be afraid. Be VERY afraid!
