New Babies

Over on the Flock Hall 2.0 blog, I asked everyone to introduce themselves - and they have, for the most part. The human and nonhuman members of the family that we had when we signed the lease have been introduced - but we have recently acquired a new member, and we are going to get another in the near future...

Much like she was taken in and adopted herself, Squid has adopted a pygmy hedgehog. He came with the name "Kitsch" but I think Squidly has other names in mind. I'm sure she will do an intro post for him on Flock Hall 2.0 very soon (hint hint).

I am also getting another baby - a Greater Vasa parrot hen - toward the end of July, assuming the landlord doesn't object (he better not object; I'm having some plumbing and carpentry improvements done to the house out of my own pocket!). Because they are somewhat rare as pets, I've posted these pics of Vasas so you can get an idea of what they look like:



She was born on April 20th (hee hee; 4-20) and she is just about weaned now. As soon as she arrives and gets settled into her new home, I'll take some pics of her and post them.

Ajax is SO going to tap that ass. ;)

WNG said...

Puuurty! And an Aries! Good for you :-)

Flynn said...

hmmm I was thinking of getting one myself, as Linus describes them they are very mellow, able to speak, and oh yeah- birds of pray Muahahahha

but really, they have odd dimensions, larger neck and wing span, which I like... But I did have a slightly more exaggerated mental image of them... Iono, I'll see how Linus' behaves

Modig - I don't want to say your kink is wrong, but interspecies mating is WRONG. Besides, Ajax is gay.

To a religion scholar like myself, "birds of pray" is a really enjoyable typo... This is yet another reason I like having Flynn around.

Vasa's are a bit more like birds of prey in that in the wild they will actively hunt for small animals (mostly bugs and the like) to add protein to their diets at certain times of the year.

They are a rather primitive species, having been isolated on the island of Madagascar. They are much more reptilian in their look and behavior than many other parrots. I'm sure I'll be posting quite a bit about her behaviors.

So...it's actually the Flock Hall Zoo?

It's not as bad as it sounds. My fish is ancient, and not long for this world - his hetero life mate died recently. Gandalf is similarly ancient, and will likely depart this mortal coil before too long...

Modig_Bjorn said...

"It's called interspecies erotica fucko!"

Mayren said...

oh no .. i can just imagine Modig_bjorn breaking out the Bukkake... sheesh.

Modig_Bjorn said...

*Googles bukkake*




*Regrets it*

His Sinfulness said...

Yesterday I tried to get him to Google slash, yaoi, squick, and doujinshi. He refused... whimp.

Mayren said...

wuss indeed... next you'll tell me that he can't even handle sh┼Źnen-ai.

His Sinfulness said...

I bet it's all a cover. I bet he has a stack of "Fujimi Orchestra" and "Loveless" mangas under his bed...

Flynn said...

Hey play nice. I mean Yaoi, come on, he's got higher standards than that... he's a Guro guy all the way...


(but really, no one look that up, really)

Modig_Bjorn said...

One doesn't need this type of stimulation when they are already quite happy with their "bedroom life." ;)

With that said, you are all going to the special hell.

Mayren said...

Brendon - you are loved.

His Sinfulness said...

First of all, let me say - it's not about need, Brendon. It's a *want* for most fans. Let that sink in a bit...

Also, it could be so much worse. Not too long ago over on Mist's blog, she had a link to a snake fucking video. I don't think there's even a cute little Japanese term for that; it's just "snake fucking." Not being fucked by a snake, but fucking a snake.

I'm a little queasy right now - I'm going to go rest so I don't vomit or faint or something...

Modig_Bjorn said...

K, then... replace "need" with "want" at your leisure, but I still stand by my comment. ;)

His Sinfulness said...

But doesn't fact that some people - a *lot* of people - actually WANT slash and yaoi and squick kind of break your brain? It makes me feel like there is no hope for me to ever understand the human race. (That's a problem for a sociologist, btw...)

Modig_Bjorn said...

Given the "filthiness" of some of the recent comments on some your more recent posts, my brain has indeed been breaking.

You people are what is wrong with the moral fabric of America. ;)

Big Gay Jim said...

The vasa is much cuter than I imagined. The picture in my head was much more vulture like.

And what about MY needs and wants? ;) (It's weak, I know. But I just /couldn't/ let a good dirty battle between the boys go un-gayed.)

His Sinfulness said...

Yes - let's get back to the cuteness of the bird. Look away from the ickiness that is Brendon's manga collection...

WNG said...

I am not looking up ANY of those. (At least not while I'm at work and people might see...)

Modig_Bjorn said...

I'm insulted! I loath manga! All save Lone Wolf & Cub.

Mayren said...

Ya know - i wanna know more about Squid's new baby! None of us have really noticed that on the postings... too much Vasa Love going on. so I vote for more info on Squid'd lil'one

His Sinfulness said...

Squidly, your public beckons. We'll take some pictures tonight of the spiky one.

Squid said...

:) Yes we shall take pictures this evening. Also, the little guy is working on his own introduction paragraph to the Flock Hall blog as well. Both posts should be up by tomorrow at the latest.
