I think the pictures really truly speak for themselves.
The birds got some fresh corn on the cob Monday night (yes I was too lazy to give them something more substantial but you know what? They enjoy corn served this way so as long as they are happy, I'm happy) and, well...Shade got messy.
What kills me is not only did she get her beak covered in corn, she managed to cover the corn layer with some pellet crumbs!
I actually had to help her take it off. It seems she didn't wipe her beak frequently enough early enough and the stuff was drying on like cement!
