I was in a small cage with no food or water in a hot tent in the Swap Shop, shaking voilently and screaming at anyone who came within 5 feet of me. My new mom and pop paid $300.00 for a gimp winged, one eyed basket case. And then they brought me home to a very nice lady bird, Bunky. Took a long time to re adjust to being treated kindly but I am doing well now. I am the grumpy old man of a flock of 8 make that 10 going on 12, and of course the head honcho. Looks like my honchoness mught be in jepordy 2 new guys showed up a few days ago and hey are HUGE..

Alex, it is So sad for all of us, those that followed your lifes work in the news & those that just heard of you, that you couldn't stay with us earth bound mortals longer to teach us more, we still have so much to learn. And you were a patient teacher. You will be dearly missed, I am sure Griffin and Aurthur are greiving also.~ ~ Fly high, fly straight, fly amongst the clouds and those other feathered angels in the sky above us, always....... ....... 7 ....... .......

  Hi Jack!
You are one lucky birdie. It looks like you have a wonderful place to live. I would love to learn more about how your Mommy and Daddy got all of you to live together in peace and built that beautiful place where you and your brothers and sisters live. Would they be willing to email me? If so, visit my site and let me know. Thanks!

That is so nice that you have a Mommy and a Daddy, a matched set is always good. Just wanted to say goodnight, pleasant dreams. What did your Dad get your Mom for Mothers Day before we forget to ask?

Well that was a great move, carry on so that everyone passed you by until you saw the one who should be your Mom. Seems to have worked out pretty good.Birds are like chocolates, cant stop with one, sweet little feathered children.

You guys just have a Dad right? I told Jolly happy Mothers Day to all the ladies including your Mom, well for today your Dad can fill in as your Mom as well that way he gets extra kisses. My Mom does not have a Dad so we just have Mom and Grandma.

  HIi from Lucky
Just flew by to say hi and give ya a vote. It sounds like you use to have a pretty bad life until you meet your owners. Some people just can be so nasty and others can give you there heart and soul.The person who hurt me got off easy. The breeder was out of town and she had someone take care of her babies . When he was done feeding me he picked me up by my neck and from the weight of my body he broke my neck. Thank to a loving person. She did every thing she could for me.and in the end everything worked out great. Mommy daddy and I will never forget what all she did for me and gave me a chance at life.

Come visit me, Gunner, Savannah, Lucky...RIP & Stormy.

  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”

  Hallo to our one-eyed little friend.
Hi mom & dad....Herzlichen Glueckwunsch to your new granddaughter arriving soon. She will be adding more golden moments to your golden years. Yeah, i wanted to get my birds some of them swings you have, but that probably would'nt work so good with Simu. Eveything what's shreddable will be gone in no time, so i thought maybe java wood will resist his busy beak. Lets find out, hehehe. As soon we'll have them gyms up and made pics of it i will let you know. I'll bet Bunky loved her rides in the motor home. I can really picture her in there together with that sweet dog. About Simu's name.... i really don't know what it means, he had this name already when we got him. I really liked the name, sounded kind of african, and him being an african bird i thought it fit pretty good. He calles himself all the time so i guess he likes it too. About his new pics, he was really p....off with me on that day. I wanted to hang his new toy in to his cage and i had to get him away from the cage, otherwise he will give nasty bites. So first he had to go on that "hated" playstand and then there was that huge toy in his cage. He pounded for about 10 minutes, but afterward he was fine, but you can sure tell on his impression that he did'nt liked it at first. Love all the new pics you guys put up. Going to fly by the rest of your flock to drop votes. See you soon.

I'm glad to see you found a great owner. You got my vote of confidence. Just wanted to say thanks for stoppin by to say hi to our gang. I was in the budgie site, it's a great looking home you have. We're all jealous, we now get to look out and see the cold white snow and enjoy being indoors right now. From our family to yours, stay safe.

  Hi Jack!
Thanks for Snuggies vote! We are very lucky because all of our animals love our son. Snuggles and Munchie love to sit on the back of his car because they think it is so much fun when he bounces up and down! Johann, Gonzo, Bonney, Clyde, and Campbell show off for him by flying all around the room and acting silly when getting a bath! Gonzo thinks it's cool that you can hang by one toe nail. She also has a gimp wing, but she still can hang upside down and flap her wings with the best of them! Here's a vote for you, too!
