Ah the duck is roasting

the parrots are going nuts, it is Thanksgiving, except that Hubby is working.

Yes, I am glad there is a job, but remember folks, it is not just Retail workers who were called to work. For the first time since I remember plant workers are manning the plant at the USPS... and it makes me wonder, since they have never been required, well except the let's keep the lights on volunteer crew, to work on Thanksgiving.

This soon will spread to other jobs.

Some make sense, like if you work at a news department, or a hospital or emergency services... but this does not.

Just a thought.

(Oh and yes the hungry beaks are not happy. they want some duck NOW, and it will take still hours to roast)

1. "The hungry beaks want duck NOW"...that's a good visual. LOL

I did not know that parrots ate meat...thought they were mostly fruit and seed eaters.

2. It depends on the species

but Conures are omnivores.

In the wild they have been observed going after carcasses as well.

We feed them human food, and whatever I cook, except avocado and chocolate.

And it is actually cheaper.



Oh and they love meat. Cookie, our nanday, begs for steak. He loves it.
