Hi! My name is Oatie

I am a Quaker from Columbus, OH.

Monkey Head

10 years old   M


Millet seed

On my parront, and if she's not available, my play gym

Being left alone - I HATE that!

She spoils me by buying all kinds of toys, but I love to play with things that AREN'T toys... like toilet paer rolls!She'll learn with time, I guess

I get REAL cranky when I'm tired. I start nipping and squawking, but hate to go to bed and miss anything!!.

Always do the opposite of what's expected of me - it keeps everyone on their toes!.

  How am I doin?
Me - Oatie to let you know what's going on! I have been very healthy since we got the vitamin powder from that Doctor of mine. I talk ALL the time now, and recently learned that if I say "Do you want a bath?" my parront (who repeatedly has said that to me) fills up my bath dish with nice warm water for me. Gee this is the life! I think she feels guilty because she away (at 'work' she says?) most of the day. So when she's home, I say "I wanna come out!" and I get let out of the cage to play all evening on the gym or - more preferably - on my parront! We sing together - I know 'O Mama', 'I Love You A Bushel and a Peck" and the theme song to 'MASH'. She says I sound TERRIBLE and can't carry a tune in a bucket - but I try my best!
My favorite time is when we sit together and she scratches my head where I can't reach. It feels SOOO good, and she says it's the only time I'm quiet and stay still! Well - thanks to everyone that visits me here and votes for me - come again soon!

Come visit me, Oatie.

  Hyde Park Quakers
Hi Oatie!
Great name you got there. I am named after a Star Trek personality. He was a strange bird as well!
Hyde Park is in Chicago. It is an area where the the University of Chicago is. 25 or so Quakers were in quarantine in Chicago about 25 years ago and some how escaped as a group. They managed to survive their first winter by eating at backyard feeders. People here were so enthralled to see parrots they went all out to feed them. The then Mayor Washington loved them. They would perch in his tree outside his window of his home in Hyde Park. He helped make them famous. They are now well established in many areas of Chicago and suburbs and are continuing to expand their boundaries and colonies. They are looked down on by the utility company because of their nesting on transformer poles. Their nest catch fire every now and then so the electric company takes them down on a regular basis. When the do the call a rescue before they do so the rescue goes out with them and takes all the babies if there are any and all the eggs if there are any and then hand feeds and incubates the eggs and sells them as pets. That is how I got my Q. He was incubated and hand raised. He has gotten a real attitude lately. He loves me but has started to gently clamp down on others fingers when they come close enough to his beak!

Come visit me, Q.

My Parront took me back to that Doctor, who figured out I had a staph infection - whatever THAT is...
I got a NEEDLE in my tummy!! And now I get icky medicine twice a day. But - I do feel better. I'm talkin' and sqaukin' and climbimg all over again!

Come visit me, Oatie.

  Hello Oatie
This is Spirit Wind's Mom. Thank you for visiting his page. I am sure that if he could read that he would love to be your friend. He had many friends and we all miss him so very much. He is still with us in our hearts and in the breeze that blows through the trees and that brush across our cheeks. He has many brothers and sisters and one happens to be a Quaker. He is a rescue named Buddy who's cage mate is a Blue Front Amazon named Baby, also a rescue. You are more than welcome to visit them at any time. Buddy is sort of naked but that does not stop him. He is full of personality.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Spirit Wind's Mom

Come visit me, Rocky, Sadie Rest In Peace My Sweet Baby, Rocky & Me Morgan.

  I am EXTREAMLY smart - even my Doctor told me that. He informed my Parront that Quakers start talking at 1 year of age. My Parront proudly told him that I (I am 8 months old) satrted talking 3 months ago. She then rudely added 'and hasn't shut up since' - but I ignored that.
I want to be a watch-maker when I grow up. I can pull the stem out of a watch within 10 seconds. For some reason, though, this is not looked upon as a helpful action...
Have fun in whatever you do!

Come visit me, Oatie.

  First Trip to Vet
I was MOTRIFIED when that Doctor grabbed me and started prodding me! I looked at my parront and said with my eyes, 'How can you let him man-handle me like this!' She did NOTHING to help me!
He cut my toe nails off and I was BLEEDING from one! The nurse took the blood in a little tube and ran off with it. Thet put some powder on my toe and it stopped bleeding. I have to admit, that it really didn't hurt.
The Doctor put a Qtip down my throat! He said something about a 'culture'.
Then - he cut my wing feathers! I was just getting a decent elevation, and he went and did that to me! So what if it's an Ohio State law for pet Quakers - it's still MUTILATION!!!
But I have to say - I look quite neat and handsome now...
Then they all made a fuss over me - how healthy I was and how smart I am.
After all that, it's nice that they noticed

Come visit me, Oatie.
