Flock news from the large featherless being....

If you are just joining us this month, you may not know that last month we celebrated the grand finale of another 365-day series of Love & Feathers & Shells, the blog.

Yahoo!! :-)

It was so fun to write - we sure hope it was equally fun to read!

Speaking of reading, if you've been reading along with us for a bit longer, you may have noticed we are wildly overdue for the third installment in the Love & Feathers book series.

Aptly entitled Love & Feathers & Shells, this is the year the large featherless/shell-less assistant finally gets her act together to produce that very same eagerly anticipated volume.

We hope.

Which means this is also the perfect moment to shift focus on Love & Feathers & Shells, the blog.

This month, we begin to tackle that tottering unanswered stack of frequently asked questions ("are tortoises smart?," "do Pearl and Malti get along?," "how do you move a hibernating box turtle?").

And so....change.

We don't always love it, but this time it is bringing good - heck, maybe even great - things for all, and especially for YOU, our treasured extended flock member.

February, of course, is Pearl's month - the month 'o love, the month when all that "advanced nesting" finally pays off.

The nests (oh so many nests) are feathered and ready. The (oh so manly and masculine) single and solo manbird is waiting with wings wide open.

And, well, Cupid knows where we live.

With the majority of an utterly weird winter weather season behind us, Malti is finally able to spend more time outdoors in her new fully enclosed habitat and adjoining daytime play area.

Thank goodness.

Reason being, indoors she is firmly geolocated around the big white box (aka the refrigerator) and has nothing but time to spend convincing her large shell-less waitress to bring free refills of all her favorites.

And neither of them have much willpower.

Bruce is still snoozing. Not that he needs any beauty rest. But his mama is so ready to see his sweet whirling red eyes and bright orange cheek patches and - pièce de résistance - those nostrils (SWOON) again.

Soon. SOON.
