I have a talker on today...sorry! he he he! Mom moved my cage front so Tootles can't push my food and water dish out of my doors anymore. He is such a brat! I personally have the opinion that you and Dylan should bite your momma every time she even mentions a bigger bird....but that is just this 'lil birds opinion. he he he! You don't want an annoying bigger sibling like I have. No way! he he he! How are things going with Dylan? Is he a pain like my siblings? Grrrrr! I have to tell you how much I love my millet holder. Momma put some fresh millet in it for me and I got to eat all of it....every last bite. None of the other birdies could reach it...just me. Let me tell you that was the best gift any birdie could ask for. You sure know how to spoil a guy. Well, beautiful, momma must run some errands so I must be logging off. She says us birdies must be in our cages when she isn't home but that pain in the butt, Tootles, escapes from his cage. Mom was having problems with him last week. He escaped the 1 day and momma couldn't find him. I tell you...he is a pain! he he he! Kisses and hugs! SWEETPEA P.S. Cockatiels are great birdies. Momma says she prefers the females over the males...but that is her personal preference and everyone has their own opinion.

  Hey there cutie!
A bigger bird...I would bite your momma just for thinking that. he he he! Momma said the biggest factor of any bird, is their temperment. Our senegal, Moosey, is a nipper. He will sit with you and love you and kiss you and then he will nip you. He even tries to bite whoever is changing his water. I stupid can you be...why wouldn't you want fresh water? he he he! Adopting an older birdie is always a wonderful idea but you have to be prepared for his/her behavior quirks. Make sure to find out why the owner is looking for a new home for their bird....momma feels that is the most important. Mom likes the senegals but, in her opinion, they are big birds in little bodies and have the attitudes to go with them. Momma doesn't mind that though. She still loves Moosey even if she gets mad when he bites her fingers. he he he! Mom says greys aren't as finicky as people make them out to be. If you provide them with a good diet, lots of love, and play time, they are fine. They aren't any quirkier than any other birdie can be. Mom said if you want a grey maybe consider a timneh. They are suppose to be more relaxed then a congo. Mom isn't sure if "relaxed" is the best word but that was the only one she could think of. My aunt adopted a grey who is 16 years old. She goes wonderful with my aunt. She sits with her, eats well and is thriving in her new home. It all depends on the environment that birdie is raised in and I know your momma will provide a wonderful home for any birdie. Mom and I hope that helps...if your momma needs clarification...let me know. How exciting!!! You are moving! That is so cool! You will have to let me know once you are all settled in your new home!

  Hey cutie!
Sorry it has been so long since I have written you. Momma's computer died and she is still having problems with it. I think I might have to bite that computer or better yet, I will have Kiwi do it. She is the master of destroying things. he he he! How are things going with having a new room mate? I hope well. At least your room mate is the same size as you. That pain in the butt, Tootles, has been pushing the water bowl out of my cage again. My skin sister had just cleaned my cage and that pain, Tootles, pushed the water bowl out of my cage and made a big mess. Grrrrr! I would like to beat that brat up. Oh, and on top of everything else, he is starting to talk just like me. Of course, my talking is much cuter than his but he is still copying me. The nerve of him!! I am going to have to teach him a lesson. I am not sure how...but I will come up with something. he he he! If I don't get on the computer before Saturday, I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day. Don't eat too many treats! A great big Valentine's Day hug and kiss for you...xoxoxoxoxoxoxo....SweetPea

  Hey cutie!
I am glad you liked your toys. Isn't that hand toy the greatest and the one that looks like a lil' broom? I love both of those toys. I am always playing with 1 one of them. Momma didn't have a chance to rearrange my cage but she claims she will get it done this week. I don't mind. I like the toys I have and I don't always like when she changes things around but she claims it is for my own good so that I don't get bored. She made us birdie bread and put some in my cage but I refused to eat any. I did eat the mixed veggies she gave us the other day but I didn't even taste the birdie bread. Mom said she isn't giving up and I will get birdie bread again this week. Grrrr...she is such a pest sometimes. he he he! Well, cutie, I must be getting ready for bed. I hope you and Dylan don't do too much partying on New Year's Eve. I wish you and your family a happy and healthy New Year. A New Year kiss for you....SweetPea

...that is cute...he he he! Thank you so much for my wonderful Christmas present. I feel so bad that you haven't received your presents yet but I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy mine. I absolutely positively love the millet holder...maybe now that naughty Kiwi will not steal my millet when momma gives me some. he he he! Momma told me this weekend when my cage gets cleaned, she will let me have my new toy. I cannot wait to play with it. It looks like so much fun. I am so lucky to have met such a wonderful friend like you here on the channel. I hope your family and flock had a magical Christmas. Hugs and Kisses from SweetPeat

  Evening beautiful!
Momma told me a package is under the tree for me but I can't have it until Christmas. Can you believe the nerve of that woman?!? I am going to have Tootles nip her...that will make her get her act together. I was about to have Tootles or Kiwi bite momma since she was so late getting your and Dylan's gifts sent out. She is such a slow poke. I guess having big birdie siblings is great for making your momma getting her butt into gear. he he he! I am glad you like my new pictures. I think the pictures of me in the shower are embarassing but momma doesn't care. She is sure weird. he he he! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas. I bet your momma letting you meet Dylan early was the best Christmas present us birdies could ask for. Christmas kisses and hugs for you and your family. A big kiss just for you SweetPea

I hope you get lots of goodies and extra kisses for Christmas. Don't eat too much and don't drink any of that special egg nog. he he he! Christmas kisses and hugs for you...SWEETPEA.

I don't know what the deal is with this channel but I can't pull up Snowflake's picture. Grrr! I will have to keep trying to pull up his picture. Momma left me pick a Christmas present out for you. It is one of my favorite toys. I told momma that if I love the toy that you will love it too...I sure hope I am right. I told momma she has to get your presents ready to send to you this week or you won't get them in time. Momma said Christmas is right around the corner and that if Tootles doesn't get his act together, he will get nothing but a lump of coal for Christmas. I think that is what he should get anyway. He is such a pain in the tail feathers. Grrrr! I will keep trying to visit your new flock mate. I will have to send him a welcome note. I hope you have sweet dreams. Kisses from SweetPea

You're getting another birdie in your flock...oh you are so lucky to be getting another little birdie. Let me tell you, these big birds are a pain in my butt. They are constantly climbing on my cage and Kiwi stole my spray millet the other day. Can you believe the nerve of her? Grrrr. Mom said she can't think of any advice other than to be prepared that when you have 2 birdies, they will usually prefer each others company over yours. This is NOT always true but it is pretty common especially with us lil' guys. I prefer my skin sisters company over those pain big birdies. Grrrr! Maybe I will ship you Tootles for Christmas. he he he! I think momma would disown me but I don't care. He is the biggest pain! he he he! Mom said she will email your momma this weekend. She has been wanting to email her all week but she has been running around acting crazier than normal. Oh, mom got new pics. of me and she said she will have to put them up this weekend. I will fly by and let you know when she has them on my page. Well cutie I must be getting ready for bed. It has been a busy day. Kisses from SweetPea.

  Hey there cutie....
I had to fly on over and check out your new pictures. My mom now has this silly idea that she is going to try and get more pictures of me. Grrrr! I guess I do need some new pics. but I also know I will be blind by the time she is finished. Grrrr! Mom didn't try to feed me any of that weird Thanksgiving food but she did try to give me banana...bananas...yuck! Of course, Tootles, Echo and Kiwi ate all of theirs. They are so weird. he he he! Mom said she is going to make birdie bread this week and she is going to give me some. I don't think I want any of that either. I hate when she gives me new foods. Mom puts mainly bells and mirrors in my cage. Maybe I could send you a surprise toy for would have to send momma your address though...if you are comfortable doing that...but ask your mom first. Mom says we must always ask our mom's first. I heard whispering through the house today about Santa Snork coming soon and I heard that mom sent some gift suggestions his way...I cannot wait to see what I get for Christmas. This is my first Christmas with my family. I am so excited. Well, cutie, I must be going. A great big good night smooch just for you...SweetPea

Hey there cutie! I had to fly by and visit with you before mom's crazy week started. She is busy with scouts this week and getting ready for Thanksgiving. I won't eat any of the food momma will make but I know piggy Kiwi and Echo will eat enough food for all 3 of us. They eat everything...they are such pigs. I have a couple toys in my cage. I have a toy with a couple little hands on it and there are mirrors on each hand and bells at the is my favorite. Actually, anything with bells is my favorite. I love to sit and talk to my bells and mirrors. I also like to talk to my food. Momma says this is silly but what does she know. Talking to your food is fun...he he he! You look beautiful in your second picture. Mom has been trying to get more pics. of me but I won't let her...I run or fly away and hide where she can't get me. he he he! I have seen how my flockmates suffer from flash shock after mom is finished with one of her photo shoots...not way! he he he! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. Don't eat too much turkey...I definitely won't. Turkey...yuck...aren't they our cousins or something. he he he! Well, cutie, I am so thankful to have meet you here on the channel. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Kisses and hugs for you...SweetPea

No, you didn't give your momma pinkeye. Mom told me that pinkeye is no fun. She said she had pink eye many many moons ago and that the twin skin children had it when they were babies. Clipping your wings is pretty easy and it won't hurt you....but I am sure you will complain...I always do. he he he! Make sure you stay in the bottom portion of the wing and do not go above the "line". I hope that makes sense. Make sure you have flour on hand in case your momma clips you too short and you bleed at all. Momma always keeps flour on hand when she does Moosey's nails because he is so naughty and won't stop moving. Momma has been threatening to do my nails but hasn't done it yet....thank goodness. he he he! Nope, we don't have any other pets in our house except for birdies....oops, I forgot...we do have hermit crabs. Have you ever seen a hermit crab? They are weird....where are their feathers? Mom has been thinking about getting a puppy for the skin children but she still hasn't made up her mind. She keeps thinking it isn't the right time....and she is afraid the puppy will hurt us. So mom still hasn't made up her mind....thank goodness. I hope your momma is feeling better real soon. Mom put my cage up on a higher stand and now I am almost as tall as the big birdies. Tootles, the pain, keeps climbing on my cage. I must learn to bite his toes to keep him off. It would serve him right. he he he! Well I must be going. Momma wants to eat a snack before it gets too late. Kisses and hugs from SweetPea xoxoxo

  I am baaacccckkkkkk....
Momma is always behind on blogging. She has been busy cleaning the house and doing laundry. Have you ever heard such a pathetic excuse for not blogging my friends. Grrrr!! I live in the same room as the bigger birdies but I do have my own cage. Tootles is always climbing on it but momma scolds him and makes him get off. He growls at momma but momma always wins. he he he! I love when Tootles gets into trouble. Momma said she doesn't have too many good ideas to help us not be so afraid. I am the same with momma and the skin children...when they try to hold me, I make a run for it. My skin sister will cuddle me in her hand so I can't fly and I will stay like that for awhile but eventually I wiggle my way out of her hands. he he he! It isn't a big deal that you don't have a band on your leg. Mom said one of the nicest things about a band that is if we are ever stolen or lost, the band helps to identify us. All the birdies in my house are banded. Yes, momma clips my wings. She even clips the bigger birdies wings. You should hear all the commotion on wing clipping day. Mom says if you wouldn't know better, you would think she was torturing us....well, duh...she is torturing us. I don't like when she clips my wings. In the winter mom lets the bigger birds wings grow in since they don't go outside. Mom lets me go outside during the hot months but I have to stay in my cage which is fine with me. We have these weird looking birdies living at our house....I think mom said they are chickens. They are huge. They make Echo look little. he he he! Oh and they eat I am thankful mom lets me in the cage or they might try and eat me, too. he he he! Well, cutie, I hope you have a wonderful night. Mom has to go make supper and take my skin brother to karate. I think I will go talk to my food some more. I love to talk to my food. Kisses and hugs from SweetPea!

  Evening beautiful!
Sorry to have asked you about your pooh...but momma claims that is a good way to know if you aren't feeling well. Yes, there should be some white in there but mom says our pooh is so small it is hard to see sometimes. What a yucky conversation!!!! he he he! I am glad to hear that you seem to be fine. Mom puts the fan on in the same room as us and she says she feels it is fine as long as it is not blowing on us directly. If you are concerned you are getting too much air then I would ask your momma to put a towel on the top of your cage at night. I don't eat the fruits and veggies that mom puts in my cage either. She even tried dried food but I just eat around says that is because I am a stinker. he he he! Mom bought me special itty bitty dried papaya and I refuse to eat it so she gave it to the bigger birdies. She says the bigger birdies probably need a magnifying glass since it is such small pieces. he he he! I like to fluff and put my head on my back when I sleep. I had a home prior to moving in with mom so I wasn't handled for quite some time. I like to complain alot and try to fly away when anyone tries to hold me. Mom doesn't push the issue if I don't want to be to whether or not you will ever be liked to be held, that is really up to you. The more times your momma tries to handle you, the better chance you will have liking to be held....but don't hold me to that....everybirdie is different. Mom had a parakeet that didn't like to be held at all but he loved to come out of his cage so she would let him out to play. I am banded so mom went back to the birdie store where I was bought and got my hatch day. She doesn't know of how else to tell how old I am. I am 1 1/2 years old. My hatchday is in February. Yes, I have skin siblings. I have 2...8 year old twins. I love my skin sister. It is so much fun to sit in her hair and hide. My skin brother is okay but he isn't as nice as my skin sister. Mom also babysits a boy before and after school who is 7 years old and he tries to hold me too. I sometimes will let them hold me but most of the time I just fly away from them. he he he! Well, cutie, I must be going to bed. Mom is tired and she has a busy day tomorrow. Sweet dreams. Kisses from SweetPea
