Rasputina Campbella ~ otherwise known as “Raspy”
7th August 2008 ~ 23rd November 2011
Raspy is Atilla’s younger sister (by 2 days). Raspy can give as good as she gets so is not far behind her sister in the leadership stakes. Both Atilla and Raspy are part pet, part exhibition birds.
Raspy Bella is a real live-wire. She demonstrated “floozy” tendencies quite early on with her swing and then extended this behaviour to her mirror and the perch…. (Atilla usually looks on in disgust whilst I am sighing “I can’t take her anywhere….”). But what the hell, Raspy is a GOOD-TIME gal and has fun!
Unlike Atilla, Raspy has a very short attention span. She will take a few bites of food then changes perch, hits a toy, has a flirt with an object, then has another few bites…. I think she gets frustrated with Atilla sometimes when Atilla wants to rest and she wants to play, play, play!
The addition of the toy boys to the flock has been most welcome by her and she has wasted no time getting acquainted with them. 🙂

I had no idea that Raspy and Atilla were part pet part exhibition type – I thought they were full exhib.
Imagine how big they would be if they were full show birds then!!
Weird cos they look bigger than Roswell and Snowy – maybe they aren’t.
Their mum & dad were an exhibition & a pet type (can’t remember which way round). Atilla is a bit bigger than Raspy. I suspect they look bigger than Roswell & Snowy because they are rounder & perhaps carry more fat, being hens. Your Roswell & Snowy are quite active & acrobatic, aren’t they? I’m sure they are quite lean even though big.
Yes Roswell and Snowy like climbing on the Rings and flying around like loonies!
Maybe they can teach the girls 😀
You were a beautiful, beautiful girl, Raspy.
