Being introduced to my girl Raspy. She’s like a mirror image of me (minus black lines on her back & I guess she has a beard whereas I only have spots….)

Completing a hanky-panky session with my girl Raspy, when my mate Cagney isn’t otherwise engaged. He’s my best mate but he can be a right tit at times!

I have become cuter.

Raspy tells me….. to have more baths or showers…

Still loving my girl Raspy-Bella. She’s everything I could ever want in a girl… beautiful, smart, feathery & bearded. I do my best to keep her happy. I make sure she is well fed (she’s not fat, she has big bones) & love to preen her pretty little face…

7. Who is your hero/heroine?

It has to be Raspy-Bella. She’s such a smart, independent girl with strong morals.

Cucumber. I just lurve the bit in the middle & I am lucky cuz the others aren’t too keen so there’s more for me!

Use one hundred chirps where one will do.
