He "selected" me at the pet store. I wasn't even necessarily even planning on buying another bird; I just liked looking at them because I missed the budgie that I had for 10 years that died shortly before Sunny came in to our lives.. Awards

Hi! My name is Sunny

I am a Red-Bellied Parrot from Lexington, KY.

Sunbird, Sunbaby, Orange Eyes, Dancing Bird, Bird-Boy

17 years old   M

Red-Bellied Parrot

Mashed Potatoes, muffins, fruits, cereals, carrots, Nutriberries

On an empty small box on the bottom of his cage in the sunlight. Perched on my daughter's shoulder snuggling. On my knee being rubbed.

Getting showers - I hate them! It also bugs me when someone doesn't get to my cage fast enough to get me out or give me some of what they are eating!

When she rubs my neck and lets me snuggle on her shoulder.

When we don't give him some of what we're eating quickly enough, he dances back and forth in his cage and hollers "Youie!".

  Hello from Caymus...
Hi Sunny! My mom is doing a little research on Red-Bellied Parrots to see how compatible one would be with me. Do you have any other flock members? Are any of them Conures? The reason she asks is the weekend my mommy and daddy went to a bird show and met a 6 week old male Red-Belly. Mom really fell for him, and daddy’s “thinking about it.” But mom wants to ask around to see if other mommies or daddies have any advice on if bird like you would tolerate someone like me who is constantly “on the go” and has very little fear of anyone or anything. Here’s a vote and a big birdie hug, and we appreciate your expertise!

Come visit me, Blanche, Caymus & Peachy (2004-2010) - Thank you for BOTD!.

  silly kitties...
Wow, I bet you were scared when that black kitty was pawing at your cage!!! My kitties at home ignore me. I have a black kitty named shadow, and he loves to sit on my Mom's or Grandma's laps whenever one of them is holding me, but he just sits there & purrs at me. I guess he thinks I'm pretty. He never tries to get close to me though. The rest of my kitties act like I'm not even there. I like to think they're afraid of me, hee hee hee...

I know what you mean - my Mom has been busy too, plus our internet wasn't working for a few days and she was trying to get that fixed. YUCK. I love your picture! I forgot about how much it made me laugh! Tell your Mom I hope her schedule gets a little bit easier, and I hope you have a great week!!!

  You are a very pretty bird and seem like lots of fun! my cockatiel, Pip, is obsessed with food too! She can spot it from FAR away!! Arashi hates showers too, poor thing, but still gets 'em! There have been many times we have just gone in the pet store 'looking' but not looking to buy and went home with another bird! its just hard not to!

  Hi Sunny!
I hate carrots! I've never tried mashed potatoes, but it seems like a lot of birds eat it. Maybe my mom will give me some if I'm a good boy and be really cute for her. BTW- My favorite cereal is cheerios!!

Come visit me, Kramer.

  Hello Sunny
Thanks for the visit! I hate showers too! Mom has a spray bottle that she used that i dont protest as much cause it makes me feel better after. I do turn my back on her for a little while though. I dont really talk or anything so i scream really loud when i want food or something. Mom's trying really hard to get me to stop though. She says it hurts her ears or something like that. Oh yeah and my mom doesn't give me too many almonds cause they are the only thing i want to eat when i get them, so i only get them everyonce in a while. haha. fly by again and see me soon.

Come visit me, Chester.

  HI Sunny :)
Thank you for coming to visit me Sunny. I am new here, and the welcome has been fabulous.
I am glad to hear that you lucked into a wonderful home just like I did. I live in a busy home too. My mom has 118 breeder birds, 4 dogs, 3 cats, a hamster and 2 sugar gliders. But, I love it here, enough to change my outlook on people. Now, I will let anyone pet me, but most people in the family are still afraid of me, because of how I used to be.
Thanks again for welcoming me.. stop in and say hi anytime!

Come visit me, Alfie.

  Hi Sunny!
Thank you for visiting me! It's nice to hear from other KY birds! We just moved here from Ft. Campbell so we are still new to the area. Since you live in Lexington, you probably heard about the train wreck here in Estill County. Snuggies doesn't like towels, and mom had to put some by the window in our room!

I am sure I will still be there the next time any of your family visits. Maybe I will even have babies by then. I've been thinking about it.
My mom uses an acrylic carry cage when she takes her babies to fairs and other places. It keeps the wind and weather off them. They feel secure inside them too. They can even sit on top if you put a perch up there. Great for vacations too. She said to give you this web site and you can find a vender on it that makes them and will ship them to you.
Hope to see you someday.

Come visit me, Eckkie, Akuti, Nazreen, Chip & Zulu.

  The beach...
Gee, I live right here on the East Coast & my Mom's never taken me to the beach in my travel cage! She says that it's way too hot on our beach for me. I don't go outside when it's too hot or too cold either, except for trips to the car to & from work, but that's really quick. My Mom's gotta get me a different travel cage - the one I have now is too small. I hate it. So, she carries my big cage everywhere, which I really appreciate because I love my cage. I'm not allowed outside when I'm not in my cage, either. My Mom would be crushed if I ever got lost, so she takes every precaution. I don't really want to be out there though, cause I was so scared when she first found me. I'd miss her terribly!

  Hi Sunny
It's me Lillian again. Hey I am not worried at all about the cat, I had a cat too as a sister. But sadly she passed away in Novemeber. She was 15 years old. Her name was Mocha. She loved everyone. The birds could even go right up to her and preen her and she would not move or pay attention to them. She was a cool cat. Mom says no more cats now. Just birds!!! I got a new baby brother yesterday. His name is Spirit. He is a White Cap Pionus. He is quiet and cute.
See ya,

Snow Flurries!!! WOW! That must be cool! It's been cool yesterday & today here in FL, but cool for here is in the 60's or 70's! I bet snow flurries are fun to watch! I do enjoy it when it rains while we have to get to the car before or after work! I don't think she loves it too much, but I love to get wet in the rain!

  Hi Sunny
Hee hee, it's nice to know I am not the only one who sleeps weird. Sometimes if Andre my big brother M2 has bad dreams and screams in the middle of the night I get scared and I fly to the floor, Mom always comes in though and rescues me. We had a little snow just before New Years but that's it. I like to watch the snow fall it's cool. I try to catch it but I always hit my head on the window..LOL
Oh I tell Mom night night when I am ready for bed. Do you say Night night?
See ya soon my friend..

  Hi Sunny!
Thanks for visiting me! I'm having a blast with my Palm shredders right now. My Mom takes these long pieces and ties a knot at one end and then sticks the ends through my cage, so that I can eat the long parts when I'm in the cage and rip up the knot when I'm on top of the cage. Gosh, I LOVE IT!

  Hi Sunny
It's me Lillian, hey guess what? We have a another friend on here named Daisy but I think you knew that. Thanks for tip about the crakers. I usually don't have to go too far with my food and water placed near each other. I don't dunk mine though. I don't like my food all wet and yucky. Mom gave us animal crakers the other day. She says they are th only cookies that don't have a a lot of sugar in them that we can eat. MMMM it was really good. Better than those plain unsalted crakers. Tell your mom to try it. It's raining here today so I guess we'll be kind of quiet. Yesterday though, my dad came in to collect food bowls and what a surprise he got. Me and a few of my brothers and sisters took a bath in our water bowls..LOL The whole place was soaked!! He almost slipped on th that was funny..
Have a great day,

  Hi Sunny!
Yes I do! I mostly dip my pellets in my water. I have a recipe too. If you take a pellet and put it in your water and take two drinks of water, then take the pellet out it's just right. Sometimes though the pellet sinks to the bottom and then you have soup! I do it sometimes with the dried fruit and veggies I find in my seed mix. And oh ya, I hate baths too, except in my water dish. Talk to ya later!

  Hi Sunny!
Thanks for visiting me! You look just like me when you take a bath in my water dish I always get funky feather on the top of my head! I don't have the bright orange belly because I'm a girl. Something my Mommy's noticed is that I have a light colored ring around my eyes where as you have a dark one? We can't figure out why, is it a girl vs. boy thing? Anyway your are adorable and it's always nice to meet fellow Red-Bellies!

  Hi Sunny from Lillian
Oh your a cutie. I see you came to visit me while I was sleeping. Your just like me. You have a brighter belly cause your a boy. Mom says to stay away from boys cause I am too young but your a real cutie. Shhh don't tell Mom I said that. You can talk too, that makes it even better. Do you throw razzberries at your Mom too. I do..LOL Mom tells me I am fresh when I do that but sometimes when I have to be put back down she deserves it..LOL Hey come visit me anytime handsome man. So far your the cutest Red Belly in the joint..

  Hi Sunny!
You're a very handsome parrot! It also annoys me when my Mom's don't get to my cage fast enough, or when they don't feed me what they have fast enough. Sometimes, if I'm already out of my cage, I'll just steal what I want. Or, if I'm feeling very adventurous, I'll walk around on my Mom's plate. I like to feel food on my toes...she doesn't really like that though, cause I make a real mess.
