At a bird show, my ex chose another bird but I was uncertain (didn't click) so we looked around more. Came back to the breeder's table and the other bird was gone, but Dusty climbed up to my shoulder and promptly fell asleep. How could I not fall madly in love immediately? :). Awards

Hi! My name is Dusty

I am a Cockatiel from West Chester, PA.

Dustball, Dustcloud, Duststorm, Doodlebug

23 years old   M


goldfish crackers, pizza crust, popcorn, bread, anything crunchy, millet

Sofa, pillows on sofa, coffee table where my food/water are set up, mommy's desk where food/water are set up, mommy's lap, mommy's chair (arm or seat), daddy's shoulder, etc etc.

being moved/disturbed at night, strangers

Mommy and Daddy take great care of me and let me sleep in their bed on their pillows or my own pillow. They feed me healthy foods like veggies and organic snacks, and they tell me they love me ALL the time. They treasure me and have canceled vacation plans if I wasn't allowed to attend. I love them because they love me :)

I will beep at a phone until I practically go into a trance, and I do the same thing whistling into my daddy's ear..

Birds are angels who already have their wings..

  Hey there Dusty:
I like the fact that you're an old timer. I am fourteen and really enjoying life. I just got a little Budgie brother who's a pain in the tush, but I am learning acceptance. You don't live far from us. We're in West Grove, Pa. If you're ever in the area, come see us sometime!

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.
