  Hi from Lonnie
Good Morning Big Bird, Bunky, I just love the help I get on BC. Today, I decided to take Zeus advice. I think and just let Ellie build our nest herself. I love her to death and just want to help but she reminds me that for safety sake I cannot put material so close to the hole. She thinks the chicks will fall out. I guess she is right, but a man likes to look out the door when resting on his nest. Our teils, Ms.Skeeter and Mr. Wishbone have two eggs already and she is still laying. Beep and Peep the Zebras have 3 eggs and are expecting on January the 6th also. I guess all good things come to those who wait. I'll be patient with Ellie. Afterall, I can't lay the eggs. hehe she is the expert there. Well, got to fly...Here is a vote for you and your flock too. It is from all of us. Yes, Fortune has the Big Head.....Patrick and I love it for him though. Happy 2008 my friend. Lonnie

  This is a must read
Birds have methods of eating which are all their own and are designed to
befuddle their owners. Somehow they must have a way of communicating them to
each other, since many birds use these techniques with their humans. Here
are some common eating and drinking rules of etiquette, strictly from a
birds point of view.
Food Bowl Etiquette
The Foot Strainer
Place one foot on the side of the food bowl, using the other foot as a
utensil. Grab a footfull of food and lift. Smaller seeds and pieces of food
will fall to the floor, making a funny noise. Eat the one or two pieces
which remain in the foot. Repeat until the bowl is empty.
The Dainty Selector
Approach the fresh dish of food. Daintily select pieces of food and gently
drop to the floor of the cage until only a few desired pieces of food remain
in the bowl. Proceed to eat. When done, call for more food.
The Dieter
One at a time, hold each piece of fruit, veggie or pasta in the foot. Take
one bite and drop the remainder on the floor. This ensures that there will
be room for treats and other delicacies later.
The Dried Fruit Gourmet
Choose pieces of dried fruit. Carefully place them in the water bowl. Return
later, after they have plumped up. Then remove from the bowl, taste and drop
on the floor.
The Shoveler
Approach a full dish of food. Bury the beak in the bowl and with a quick
snap of the neck, sweep the food sideways out of the dish. Use short quick
strokes to cover most of the cage bottom with pretty patterns of food. If
feeling energetic, shovel harder to decorate the walls and floor outside of
the cage. This method helps convince the pet owner that a different kind of
food is preferred.
The 20 foot Fling
Dip the foot in a food dish and grab a large footfull of goodies. Close the
foot into a ball around the items, raise the foot and throw as far as
possible. This technique not only gets to the walls and floors, but reaches
much of the furniture as well.
The Grate Houdini
From time to time drop morsels of favorite foods on the cage floor. Let them
remain there while they age to the proper potency. When ready, climb down to
the cage floor and sample the delicacies. Many pet owners have placed grates
in the bottom of the cage. To thwart this maneuver, just stretch a leg
through the grate to get at the prize. Most birds have legs long enough to
reach the tray below the grate. If the owner changes the cage papers daily,
begin dropping pieces of food just after the change so that the food has at
least a few hours to ripen.
The Butter or Sauce Scraper
This maneuver is to foil the human who coats a piece of undesirable food
with butter, sauce or something else that birds really love. Just hold the
piece of food in the foot and use the beak to skim off the good tasting part
leaving the unwanted portion untouched.

  Instead of silver or gold, Precious stones, pearls or gems, My jewelry is now made of hemp, It is strung with wooden beads, Shiny baubles and bells, I no longer wear clothes with famous designer names, Although my clothes do have “custom designs” And missing buttons, special holes, Pulled threads, yet I feel no shame. The vacuum is never quite for long. Since acquiring 10 fids It works many times a day for a song. There are more than just seeds in the fridge, It has a special shelf for fresh and tasty treats. Foraging involves more than finding food, Keeps the keepers searching for new ideas To keep us learning, busy and happy. This is all a small price to pay To live so near to the most elegant, Awe inspiring, colorfully iridescent, inquisitive creatures in all of nature. And be able to call them friends. It is hard to dedicate this to only one bird, So this is for all our feathered friends That are close to our hearts and Those that have yet to find that elusive “forever home”

  Habe uns Sorgen gemacht
and we're sooo glad all of you are okay. Ich kenne mich doch in Florida nicht aus und war mir nicht sicher, wo genau ihr lebt. Our Tornado Season get started here pretty soon and it will last up until june. I don't even want to think about that. It's always scary, like you said, having all the birds and then we have 2 cats inside & a little puppy inside and then 2 outside dogs. Last year we had a twin tornado hit the area where we used to live in Hopkinsville. No people got killed but it killed a lot of pets and it destroyed, i think, more than 100 homes. Went to google but could'nt figure out where to go for the tranlation. How do you do this?
Again we're all so happy you're guys are okay. Hab' ein wunderschoenes Wochenende and we see you soon. Tschuess, macht's gut.

  Guten Morgen, pretty Bunky
Just flying by to give you a vote and to say Hallo.
Hope all of your guys had a nice warm weekend outside in your beautiful enclosure. Here it is soooo cold, went down to 14, feeling like 5 degrees last night. We guess we're going to get our "wings" together and come flying over to you, ha, ha, ha.
You look so cute sitting together with Jack. We love the pic where you sit with him on that swing. It's so pretty, the two of you. And mom found Sweetpea too looking through all of your pics...what a cutie. Did she got used to all of you yet?
You guys have a great day.

It looks like you have an awesome environment that your humans have created for the flock. It just looks terrific with lots of great things to do and places to forage... like a birdie resort!
