Well, I came back from vacation and my bird had died some time before it. So I was looking in the classified ads and found a good deal. I bought him in the parking lot of a Safeway on a Thursday morning..

Hi! My name is Calvin***Vote For _____ #______ for BOTW!***

I am a Cockatiel from Hillsboro, OR.

Cally, Cal, or Baby

5 years old   M

Cockatiel

Sunflower seeds

On the bottom of the cage, my shoulder, top of his ladder, or on his sand perch.

Whenever I open the door of his cage and wait, he'll come out and start looking for sunflower seeds.

She gives me sunflower seeds!

Sometimes he wolf whistles if I say pretty bird..

"A world without sunflower seeds is not a world at all.".

Sure I can help you out!!! Just go back to my page and he's at the top of my blogs. Dirito (Sempre Dirito), Rocky PR, Blue & Ruby.
07 Thats what it'll look like...
Do you know how to look for a bird with their numbers? All you do is type their number in at the very top of the page where the http address is. You'll see your number 109922, just errase that and add their number there. It's alot easier then trying to find them in the search thing...

I hope this helped.

Have a great day!!!!

Love ya,
King Rocky xoxoxox V4U

I just wanted to fly by and let you know I added a new birdie to our BOTW list. It's Al Bird #125141 and I added him after Bobbi. He's been very sick. So I promised him BOTW, I think he really deserves it!

I hope your having a great day!

Love ya,

  HI CALVIN
It's Rocky again! This is what I found on passing seeds in your poop! It's not good and you better see a vet ASAP! It could be PDD.. Heres some info....

What's PDD? PDD strikes only birds (not humans) - it is a relatively newly discovered avian disease whose symptoms may include (according to the 'net) inability to digest food, throwing up, seizures, depression, weakness, destroyed organs, and everything in between (there may be multiple types of PDD - one that primarily attacks the digestive system, another that targets the neurological system, etc.). The transmission vectors are not clear. There is no cure, no vaccine, no reliable simple test for its presence! As of Summer 2002 there is finally a possible drug treatment (which is still NOT a cure).

Cheep's symptoms. Cheep-Cheep's problem could be something else, but nothing else has shown up in tests/laboratory results and he has not responded to antibiotics and anti-parasitic treatment. His primary symptoms are:

lethargy (peach-faced lovebirds do not normally sit around quietly all day)
fluffed up feathers (a sign that he is cold/ill)
somewhat enlarged proventriculus as shown in an X-ray from 1/2000.
throwing up/regurgitation - not the happy kind - contributes to starvation
inability to digest his food - seeds pass through darkened but whole. His poop shows blackened, whole, individual seeds, instead of the nice homogenous green extruded stuff that healthy seed-eating birds produce.
starvation/dangerous weight loss - his flesh simply starts to melt away, leaving just skin and feathers over bone. The keelbone test (feeling the bone that runs down the center of the chest) is how I check for weight loss. If it sticks out like a razor blade without a nice padding of flesh, there's a serious problem
I hope this helps. Please let me know and I hope it's not what you have!!!!

Love ya,
Rocky xoxoxoxoxox

  HI CALVIN
It's Rocky here! I just wanted to say that you are doing a great job helping me campaign for the BOTW's! I also wanted to let you know that there has been a couple changes to the list. Bacu was supposed to run next but he hasn't been on for 43 days so I put my little brother Chewy in his place and moved him to the bottom of the list so if you wanna stop by my page and get the new list so your not confused.
I love your main picture! Your soooo handsome and we'll have to add you to our BOTW list soon!

Well I better get going. I just wanted to keep you posted on our list changes.

Have a great day!!!

Love ya,
Rocky xoxoxoxoxox V4U
p.s. I seen what Nutmeg wrote about you pooping seeds? If thats so, you better have your mom take you to the vet! My mom read that a certain disease or parasite will do that. I'll go look it up and write you right back! I hope your not doing that!!! BRB

  hello my friend, I just came back from the vet, they said that I am much better and my brain is improving, so the medicine must have worked for whatever was wrong! I am more perky and not acting as impared. I still have my flu and swollen eye which is a side effect of the flu to deal with now though. Lots of love yoogoos and PS percy says thanks for the support and things are going well, he said also to check out his avitar and that its to show his love for his friends like you xxx

Come visit me, Yoogoos - RIP 17/04/10 my baby Oog, Umberto - in Memory of - & Percy - I miss my brother.
