My husband had taken me to Bird stores, and then spotted an ad in the newspaper for an amazon parrot. We first took in a Blue-Fronted Amazon, but he became mean after seeing his reflection in the mirror. We called the seller, and they offered us a Red-Lored in trade. When she came to deliver our Ginger, she told us that the Blue-Fronted Amazon must have been missing his sibling, whom he was caged with, and seeing himself in the mirror, thought it was the other bird..

Hi! My name is Ginger

I am an Amazon from Jacksonville, FL.

Princess Ginger, Binkers. Daddys' little Stinkers.

27 years old   F

Amazon

Nutriberries! Pelletberries! I also like pasta, meat, fish, chicken!

On my cage, The Couch, sleep on daddys' stomach, or mommys' chest!

Not getting samples of people food as fast or as often as I want! Also having to go to bed before I'm ready!

I love all the attention I get when they're home. Plus, I get to sample their food, listen to music, and sit on my moms' chest and watch tv. I love to play rough with my daddy. I love when daddy sweet talks to me.

Ginger likes to chew on our clothing like people eat corn on the cob! She grabs a piece of clothing and goes up and down munching on the clothing like she's grooming it. She also likes to groom our skin, or stick her beak into my husbands' ear. Pushing food dish out of it's holder so it drops to the floor of the cage, and then Ginger plays hockey with it, or tries to mate with it..

If you let me bite you, I'll then let you pet me!.

Does anyone know if rubber is safe for parrots? I have a toy that the strings are made of rubber. They hold shells and other goodies, but the only thing I like is the rubber strings! Is that safe for me to chew on and eat?

  Happy Belated Easter
Hi Everyone!
I hope you all had a nice Easter! I spent a quiet day at home. Mom tried to get me to take a nap with her, but I pooped down her back while she laid down, and when I got figity (sp?) she put me back on my cage. Mom and dad went to church for Easter then to the Pennyrile State Forest Resort, near Dawson Springs, KY for lunch. They did not bring me any goodies! Mom and dad still have not sold their home, so we are still living in KY.
I hope you are all well!

Happy Halloween everyone! I'm waiting for our home to get sold so we can move to Florida! Daddy says I'll get lots of sun in the apartment! Some even have screened in porches! That apartment complex will know that a parrot came to stay for a while! I hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween and that my birdie friends don't get scared from the trick-or-treaters that come to visit! We don't get any where I live!

  April showers bring May flowers
If April showers bring May flowers, then does April torrential rains bring in mega gardens? We've been having tons of rain lately! Each time it rains alot mommy says the road going to town gets covered over with water! While mom goes to work, daddy and I watch tv or take a nap. Mom and dad got lots of chicken for daddys' birthday party, but because of the weather we had just a small party. That's ok, lots of chicken for me to eat! Mom had to freeze some.

  Happy New Year!
Hi Everyone!
I am sooo glad that mommy is done with school. Now she can give me the attention I demand! Daddy is home with me all day. I was wondering if my other parrot buddies like chicken, pizza, sausage and other goodies? I also like certain cereals too. Mommy went shopping and got some Apple Cinammon Cherios. Those should be good! Yes I do get vegetables, but they are mostly canned. Mom and dad have limited income, so buying fresh veggies are a bit expensive for them. They make sure to give me some canned veggies and my nutriberries!

Hi everyone!
I'm back home after mommy and daddy went to Florida to visit their "people family". I missed them very much! Mommy is sick with stuffy nose, sore throat, etc., so we can't have "cuddle time" yet. I've been cuddling with daddy for now.

Hi!
My mommy has been very busy trying to get all of her homework assignments completed before graduating from WKU this December! I can't wait! For one class, mommy is making a "make-believe" parrot store web site and using different parrot species to fill up a database. I hope the teacher will be pleased! I would like to walk up on stage on mommys' shoulder when she gets her degree, but I don't have a harness or graduation outfit!

  Hi
Mom and Dad just found out that I like cereal soaked in milk, but no milk on my plate, please! I like oats that look like Cheerios, but they are store-brand. Mom is busy with homework trying to get her classes completed to graduate from WKU this December! Yeah! Dad got his disability, so he's home with me at night while Mom works.

  Hi From Ginger
I am vegitating in the a/c! No outdoor for me! Besides, daddy won't let me go outside. Too many mosquitos, and it's been in the upper 90's here in KY! I've been "hanging" with mom in the mornings while she takes her "snoozes." I usually get up with daddy at 7am! We're for mornings, but not mommy! While mom is writing this for me, I am getting in position for my morning morning nap.

Thanks to all our service men and women who are protecting us 24/7. My "cousin" Mathiew is in Afghanistan right now with the USAF. Mommy tried to be in the Army, but she couldn't shoot well, and got an honorable discharge. Having to wear those stupid rubber boots over her combat boots did not help walking over ice and snow during the long treks.

Today I had meatloaf and linguini and white clam sauce. It was yummy!

  Hello from Pipper and the flock!
Hi Ginger! Thanks for stopping by my page! I hope your dad feels better real soon. Wow! Pneumonia! No fun at all. My mommy goes to school, too. Boy does it make her grumpy sometimes! Mommy also has a full time job that she has to leave for. Daddy goes to school, too and works. He doesn't get as grumpy as mommy though.

Spice cake sounds way yummy! I wish I could have tried some. By the way, my daddy made my shower perch with pvc and suction cups. To help us grip, they put part of a fun noodle on it. I also love to be misted with the water bottle but I like warm water better. Hey, maybe you could sing your daddy a get well song or whistle one for him. I bet he would like that. Well, I have to go for now. Mom already wants the computer back. C ya later!

  Hello Ginger!
Thank you for flying in. Gosh, it's been a while since me and mom went to the BC. It used to be so much fun, but then it got a little stupid around here with all the competition going on who will be Bird Of The Week & Month. (ooops, probably pooped on a lot of them right then, hehehe).
A lot of people quit coming on here because of that.

That is sooooo cool, that you live so close, there are not that many CARING birdpeople with birds around. And you are so pretty too, you are a young lady already, i am still a baby but i can act VERY sophisticated and Amazon-like also, hehehe. I rule the flock, even i am the youngest and the only bird-girl. And i can talk 'em all down, even the Grey. We are babysitting an Umbrella Cockatoo again, she always visits with us when her mom & dad go out of town, and giiiirl, is she LOUD. She is louder then me!!! Mom always tells me to behave and to watch my "potty-beak" when the 'too is her, common, how could she do that? But maybe mom is right, it's not a good idea to use bad language around a bird who belongs to a pastor, i guess? Even if she does not talk at all.
But anyway, we live in Cadiz since 2004, before we lived in Hoptown, on Madisonville Rd. Mom likes Cadiz much better but still wants to move somewhere warm and dry. She says she wants to go to Las Vegas or surrounding, away from all the rain and humidity. But ol' dad , well that's a different story, he will probably never get away from all this here.
I know we don't know each other yet, but maybe our moms can get together sometimes. My mom always loves to meet bird-people.
She has to get my travel cage together for tomorrow, Thursday. I have an appointment with my vet in Nashville, yearly checkup and beak trim. Yuck!! I love going for a ride, but the trim.... mom says it's my own fault, because i do not like to chew on wood toys.
Well, i would like to talk some more but mom really has to go. We have to get up early and she has to get all the other birds and critters ready.
Hope to hear from you again, and......sorry about mom's english, she is german and sometimes them words just don't come out right.

Come visit me, Simu & Flock & BELLA - Panama Amazon.

  Hello from Pipper!
Thenks for stopping by my page. You are one lucky bird to have gotten peanuts. I love them. My favorite, though, is shelled almonds. I can't have the shells cause I have a problem with my upper beak inside. There are supposed to be these things called papillae that keep food particles out of my sinuses but I don't have any so I have to be real careful about what I eat.I had an infection when I was about 7 months ols in my sinuses from a piece of almond shell that got stucked up there. Well, I have to go for now. Enjoy a peanut for me, too, okay? C ya later!

  Happy New Year's Everyone!
Figured I'd get in and post some new info before mom gets busy with school work again! I'm still mad at mom and dad for leaving me at the vets' during Christmas, plus getting my wings, nails and beak trimmed. My mom and dad are planning to move to Florida with me, of course! First they have to sell their home and property after it has been split. Mom hopes to move in the Fall, after her Fall semester has begun so she won't have to pay out-of-state tuition fees (double the amount!) My dad has a new job, part time. He has to get up at 3:50am! Ugh! Mom lets me sleep 'till later. But then I have them both from about 12:pm until 3pm when mom goes to work. Once we move to Florida, there'll be no more Christmas boarding for me! Yeah! There's even an Avian Vet where we'll be living! I can't wait to see grandma again, and Uncle Rick and Aunt Vicky. I have yet to meet Aunt Judy or Uncle Jay or my cousins, or Katie. Who knows I might even get a reunion with Mikey!

Anyone know where I can get a legband for an adult parrot? My birth parents never got one for me, so I was sold to my present mom and dad without one.

  Hello my friend!
Pipper here! Thanks for stoppin by my page. Wow, it has been a while since we have chatted. Mom keeps hogging the computer for her college work and I can't get any time in to keep up with my friends. GEEZ! So, you got to share dad's bagel? You are so lucky. I love bagels. Mom sprouted some lima beans for us and gave me one today. She says they are nasty but I love them! I pinned my eyes while I was eatin it. Mommy and Daddy think it is so funny when the other birds start yelling, and of course I join in. But then I tell them all "Bad Bird" cause they are yellin. I know I am not a bad bird cause mommy tells me all the time that I am a good boy. Well, I hope you have a great weekend. Wing hugs to you and a vote of course. C ya later!

  Hello from Pipper and the flock!
Long time no talk, my friend! Wow, it sounds like you have had a busy day. Mommy has been wierd lately. First, she left the house for 3 days. Then when she came back she had these wierd plastic things around her wrists with writing on them and Mommy had trouble walking. She has been sleeping a lot and not doing much of anything. She told us she had something called an operation on her belly. Well, she is starting to act like normal again and she said she will be home for a little while. We sure enjoy having her here! We have lots of fun together talking to each other and singing. She also lets us watch TV with her. Well, gotta fly for now! Here's a vote for ya. C ya later!

Hi!
My mom had a few moments before going to work to put new info on me. I'm getting alot of "out of my cage" time lately! Mom is home with me during the day, and then Dad is home with me in the early evenings until mom gets home. Then I get to see both of them before we all go to bed. In the mornings, mom makes coffee for dad, gets me up, then we have breakfast together. I had waffles and English muffins with butter and also with apple butter. I also like eggs. Sunday, I had pieces of spare ribs! They were good!

Hi!
I found a new place to "hang out"! Where? Moms' pillow on her bed. After work, mom comes home and picks me up and we lay down together on the bed for just a bit while mom unwinds. Just today, mom had a ferocious headache, and I can tell because she couldn't get out of bed! I had dad pick me up and bring me to mom to keep her company until dad had breakfast ready. Then we all ate together. I got to watch Drag racing with mom and dad tonight. Tomorrow I have to entertain myself, as they both will be working about the same time. Perhaps I'll catch up on some "z"'s

  Hi Ginger
Rebel here. Yeah I've lived in Ky all my life. I survivied the ice storm too. Mom spent her time on the couch fully dressed with coat,hat,scarf, and gloves under a blanket and comforter and I had to stay in a very small carrier with a hot water bottle, hand warmers and shavings. It wasn't much fun but since the house was the same temp as the outside it was better than freezing. After 5 days my grandparents power came on so we went there and spent the night. ours came back the next day.
Glad to see another KY bird.

Rebel
