As you can see by her girth, she doesn't miss many meals!
She is so easy to introduce to new things! Five seconds after I hung Cilantro in the cage (an unfamiliar vegetable to
her), she was preening and eating it with gusto! Since Tieka (her cage mate) takes her cues from Trinny when it comes
to food, Trinny made an important step for the both of them by braving the "big bad veggie conversion". She's my little
Neither of the girls were familiar with "Cheerios" as treats, but again, it didn't take Trinny
long to figure out A) it was food, and B) it was GOOD, when I offered it from my hand. After a little hesitation, Trinny
was soon chasing after me for more!
Both Trinny and Teika will willingly "step up" onto my finger, but are both shy about being
pet yet. Still, food is definitely the way to this gal's heart, and after her Cheerio treats, she allows me to scritch
her at will. Hehe! In fact, she has become adept and begging for scritches (learning the art from Neo and Silver no doubt).
In the morning, she's right there with her head lowered, butting her crest against my fingers to get her morning scritches.
Often times, its a race between her, Neo and Silver to see who gets them first!

Trinny has really warmed up in her new environment
and is quite the charmer with her silly antics. Though she's 2 years old, she has the "presence" of a youngster, always
playing with toys and well.. beak down in the food cup! She too, has made the conversion to a pelleted diet with ease, but
perhaps a little too well? Though she's given up seeds which are much more fattening than pellets, Trinny still eats
more than her fair share of the "healthy stuff" and it shows. She is now on a strict diet to control her weight.
Of all of my birds, Trinny is by far the heaviest. But man is she cute!

Trinny is usually game for new toys and fun, but she's not fond of the Barbie Jeep.
In fact, she hissed at it when she saw it for the first time! A reaction none of the other birds have had to it! She's
taken one ride on it, and that was in the company of Teika, but she didn't stay on long. That's okay Trinny! We can
find plenty of other pictures of you doing dorky things! One of her FAVORITE things is taking a bath. She, Apache and
Taxi love them the most. Nothing makes Trinny chirp in glee more than a warm water mist bath... except maybe a full
|A bath and scritches! Oh Boy!
Oh well, a fat girl is a happy girl! She certainly is that! Always eager to greet the
morning and face the day with exuberance. Since she moved here, she has been shown a whole new world of veggies,
pellets and a different home, and she has embraced everything with amazing adaptability and cheer. She's fun to
watch and interact with, and I'm so glad she's here! Thanks to Mindy, Trinny is a part of my life.
