Congratulations to Lil Oz X on an exciting week – winning video of the year at the VMAs, serving three major red carpet lewks at the Met Gala and delivering a new album! And congratulations to Lil Nas X as well.
Up close and personal with Ozzie.
“nah he tweetin”
Didn’t we just finish moulting?
These are Ozzie’s feathers from one preening session.
He still has his cheek dots, though.

Ozzie and the flock wish all the fathers out there a wonderful day.
Last November, Ozzie’s cere started to turn brown.
We were hoping it was just an iodine deficiency, but giving him aqueous iodine didn’t help. So, off to to the vet we went. Our vet suggested a possible testicular tumor.
Here is Ozzie in March. Aside from the brown cere, Ozzie appeared to be in perfect health. Very active, good appetite, etc.
Recently, we noticed that the brown in Ozzie’s cere has been receding. Here is a photo from today.
Another photo from today. We have no idea why the cere is returning to it’s normal blue color (hormones?). But we are thrilled. Hopefully, the blue will remain, we need our little Ozzie to stick around!
Ozzie is having a rough moult.
Poor little Pookie.
He also took a little birthday bath.
Happy hatchday little one! We love you sooo much! XOXO
*Ozzie was recently diagnosed by his avian vet with a possible testicular tumor. Other than his brown cere, he appears to be perfectly fine.
