MIIMW MSISTANT * IT'S SUF.CLIANSmO COOK'S PAIN UN Yovr CiWrf of CootYi EAST SIDE SQUARE RHONE 526 there are only two small east windows from which the parrakeels cet direct sunlight. This, says, Mrs. Hilton, is ideal; contrary t o ! a popular belief that parrakeets' need an abundance of sunlight, Mrs. Hilton feels t h a t they require an almost damp-coolness similar to the atmosphere of a tropical forest. This atmosphere is achieved through the coolness of the basement, and the shade of the wisteria, roses and honeysuckle overhanging Ihe windows and- door. The cages are arranged in an apartment house set-up. Oflen, the · Mil tons are reminded of people \ as they watch the antics of t h p | birds. Hardly ;i day passes w i t h out a few neighborhood squabbles^ among the different families o f . birds. If one of them happens to got through a cage wall and intrude on his neighbor, the neigh- · bors pounce on him with all t h e , fury they can muster. j Oddly enough, there is a competitive spirit^ among the various bird families over the aesthetic appeal of their homes. One pair of ilrds worked diJiffcntly until they lad separated a fruit jar ring and cap full of sand, pecked a larger lole in thrir oatmeal box nest and 'ittcd the ring into their entrance, thus making their doorway prct- ier than their neighbor's. Tragedy struck in the parrakeet clan when the male in one cage cied suddenly, leaving the mother bird to finish caring for the five eggs in the nest. The little widow j s still carrying on and managing i icr five little ones by herself.! Then, of course, there was the j scandal of having a wayward fa- her bird desert his mate and babies and begin fluttering over a much younger and prettier bird in the next cage. His mate was | pushed out through a crack in the ' doorway, anci now that the young bird is his new male, he carries on over her as though he fears some other bird younger than he 1 might copy his own antics. All these maneuvers are w a t c h ed w i t h little interest by the two cockateals whose cage is near the parrakeets. The cockalcals, unlike parrakeels, will talk no matter how many other birds are around. Charlie, the male, not only speaks his small vocabulary quite distinctly, hut is also an imitator of some renown. Tie mocks a Bob White and a AVhip-Poor-Will so well that the parrakept.s probably think the other two birds arc also present. Mrs. Hilton keeps her pet par- rakeet, Sweetie-Pie, and her pampered parrot. Polly Doll, on the main floor in a room of their own. Off to himself, ''sweetie-pie" talks to his owners, but if he were kept in t h p room with the other parra- keets he would drop his vocabulary and begin chirping like the others. He was placed off to h i m - ! self when he \vas only a few j weeks old -- older panakeets can- | not be taught to l a l k . j So much does Mrs. Hilton en- j joy her birds t h a t she says she has to watch or sh** will f i n d her- ' scU staying most of the morning j when she goes down to take the fror'i waler and feed. Well, any- they are ju.=t a hobby -- or they wrre until they grew into Business. JUBILEE SPECIAL! MORE J U B I L E E V A L U E S !
