Moluccan Party!

My three boys, Kisky, Mango and Mr. LaLa, and my tomboy female Charlie, recently had a Moluccan party. There was enough hootin’ and hollerin’ to bring the house down. I had the day off, it was mid-morning, and most of my neighbors were at work and out of earshot. So, it was fiesta time! Blaze, my rather demure female, who is a long-ago, once-intended but surplused breeder, observed the festivities at a safe distance; she still harbors an intense fear of males, which is why she flunked out of the breeding program. While the party raged, she enjoyed vocalizing for a few minutes, then decided that preening quietly was more to her liking.
