Long time no squawk! That sounds awful about having snow! Ugh! We sure don't want to hear that! We have had the most beautiful Fall weather here. It has been just fantastic! Mom is going to get her Winter tires put on the car on Monday though....LOL!

I hope all is well with you now. That is too bad about the uric acid levels being low and you having to go for more tests. How have the tiels been doing? Joey is a ripe old age of 21 and sure is doing well:) Poppy is still keeping up with her training and doing her behaviours daily. I have mom trained to give me treats and that is just the way I like it:)

I am not fond of mom going to work every day, but she gets up really early in the am to spend some extra time with me and the tiels too:) I get spoiled on the weekends too:)

That sure is strange about your leg band! Can mom not move it up over your ankle? Mom has heard that the sand perches are not good for our feet. Hope your feet heal fast and get better:)

Have a good evening;)

Chicklet

  Hi Teddy!
How ya been? Anything new happening in your neck of the woods? We have been lucky to have such nice Fall weather here:) I am a rambunctious 'too as ever though. I love the extension mom made me for my playgym and have been having lots of fun on it! I still love my rollerskating and riding the scooter;) Hope you had a really nice Thanksgiving;)

Fly by soon:)

  Hi Teddy!
How are you? I am still molting and itchy. I sort of overpreened the 2 outer wing primaries and they bled a bit. I do that every year. Mom will be so glad when I am done my molt.

It has been sunny here but today we got rain. It is nice to open the screens and get fresh air in. Mom did that a bit today.

I hope that Caitlin settles down soon. I would leave her with her eggs for as long as she wants them. Poppy is doing well and is starting to molt so soon mom will take her off her diet for her molt.

Hope you enjoy your day!

hugs,

Chicklet and friends

PS. Did you get the herb salad yet?

  Hey Teddy bare!
Long time no squawk! I hope Caitlin will be ok. That is a lot of eggs! Is she eating lots of cuttlebone? I would make sure she has some of that manu mineral block as well. Are the eggs well formed? Poppy is doing fine so far. Mom got her some roller skates so she will soon be learning to do that! MOM has to get some plexiglass cut for the cage tops and make some training rods as you need them to teach a bird to roller skate and they didn't come with any.

I hope all goes well with your tests. I would get mom to phone and ask about the results. Sorry to hear that you lost your pilot's license. You were mad for 5 days?!? Wow! I usually just got mad for a few hours! Right now I am molting and I don't have my flights either. They are coming in still. I never fly when molting.

I had a nice bath and blow dry yesterday. I have been debeading my toys and keeping mom's fingers extra busy....hehehehehe.

Joey is doing well. He still isn't eating his pellets. Maybe the spinach effected his kidneys a bit? Not sure. He is eating well on his nutriberries and millet and eats a bit of regular seed. He enjoys dandylion greens, too! We all like that 'herb salad' from Twin Beaks Aviaries. Well, Sunny hasn't tried any that mom knows of. Joey ate some and Cleo and Poppy enjoy it, and so do I! I really like it! I make these happy sounds as I eat it. Of course I like to scoot some as well, but that is what us parrots, do, right?

Enjoy your evening!

Oh yeah! A new video is finally posted of the male 'tiels singing. It is Cleo's first video on BC and is called, 'The Three Tenors'.

Chicklet here with a vote for you! So you are getting full of yourself? hehehehehehe. I think you are just starting to explore your territory! Mom had to get the ladder, huh? oh oh! I don't think my pet human would like it if I did that either. You sound just like me when I was younger. It is good that mom let you practice your flying skills for a while. Mom always clipped me when I was your age, too. Mom needs to establish some pr training with you so you will come to her. I have mom so well trained in that regard, that I don't like to come out of my cage until I see that she has one hand in front of me and the other fist clamped as I know it means I will get a reward! I wait, too until she does that no matter how much I want to come out! Then I step up, wait for the 'good!' and get my goodie:) Sometimes mom leaves the room and calls me and I fly to the bathroom then. I guess she is smart too. I figure I have been stepping up for years without a treat so it is payback time! hehehehehe. Ok, maybe sometimes I do step up, but I do so instantly when I know there is a reward waiting.

I molted out some more wing feathers today. Are you molting yet?

It was a dull day today and is raining now. At least it will get rid of the snow.

Enjoy your evening!

Hey my beautiful friend - just a quick note to say hi and see how you and your mom are doing. Please tell your mom thanks for the tip about Bobo's Playhouse. Mom ordered from them and we all love the toys and treats that came in. I got a preening toy that mom thinks I am getting curious about. Hope springs eternal!

Love you lots. Please stay warm and tell your mom that mine sends her love.

Xoxo,

Chicklet here with a vote for you! Wow! Six eggs so far! Sort of sounds like me. That is a lot. I really hope she settles soon.

How ya been? It is snowing here but it is the wet kind that is just making everything squishy. Yuck. I have been chewing on my toys. I kinda like the palm flowers and have been shredding it so mom is happy. Gotta pacify 'em sometimes. Mom has been making a few more foot toys and I really enjoyed one and played with it for half an hour! Mom took Poppy's eggs away as she is done sitting on them now and she is starting to chew her toys more now. She has chewed a bit on the one you gave her.

HOpe you enjoy your evening!

Chicklet here with a vote for you. I am glad that you are better.

I hope Caitlin doesn't lay too many either, but 13 isn't too bad. That is average. I wish Poppy was like that instead of an egg laying machine! She is so cute though.

Mom hopes I am done with the eggs too. I was done my egg laying cycle last year at this time and when mom weighed me tonight, I was down 2 grams and have been eating well so it looks hopeful! I usually keep gaining if I am going to lay.

hope you have a good evening!

  Hi Teddy!
Chicklet here with a vote for you. Mom hopes I am done too, but I was a bit amourous today and I have been chomping on the mineral block. I do that anyways even when I am done laying eggs. Mom said 'enough already!'

That is a lot of eggs for Caitlin to lay. She sounds like Poppy. How many times a year does she lay? Have you counted how many eggs, too? I would. Are they well formed and healthy? Let me know how many she lays and if you can, how many she laid last year.

So your are getting yourself all squeaky clean in the shower, huh? Mom made some new toys for the 'tiels. They are cute! She has to give Joey one of the ones you made when he is finished the toy in his cage. Probably tomorrow.

Enjoy your evening!

  Thank you!!!
Hi Teddy - What can I say? I was so delighted to receive your package of goodies. Wow! Mom put a preening toy in my cage - the one with the blocks and rope - and hopes that I'll give it a whirl. PJ got the fluffy preener. She needs to stop pulling out her feathers. Paco loves the hanging tube filled with shredded paper and goodies. Mom hung it right by his perch and he immediately started pulling paper out of it. The conures will love the little foraging boxes. THANK YOU!

Please update me on what you're up to - I know our moms talk, but sometimes she forgets to tell me how my dear friend is doing. Ack! Humans.

Lots of love to you and the flock!!!

So love is in the air in your neck of the woods, too? hehehehehe. Mom really hopes I am done but wonders. I have been chomping on the mineral block and a couple of times I got all excited at her. She mist my feet with the mister to distract me. Mom wishes I would just be done already.

MOm was making a bunch of cool foot toys for me. I have a little red plastic garbage can in the bathroom that is full of them and she takes different ones out for me to play with. I have some cottonwood natural branches that she got from a bird toy company and I was enjoying chewing them up. She was really pleased. They have a nice sort of aromatic smell...almost peppery when you chew into them. Mom likes the smell so I made her a bunch of potpourri...hehehehehe.

HOpe you enjoy your evening!

Mom has to change our pictures, but I am still sort of in the mood. Mom sure hopes I am done but I am chomping on the mineral block and got a bit turned on a couple times today. Mom misted my feet and it distracted me. I do love the mister!

Sorry to hear dad is sick. Hope he feels better soon.

Mom has a video of me riding the scooter and will have to try and get another one that is better. I seem to like to steer into the cupboard. I keep telling mom that I need more practice ( I like the treats;)) but she says that I just need to pay attention and focus on steering instead of getting so excited for the treats. hehehehehe.

I have laid five eggs and Poppy is sitting on 2. The diet kept her from laying any more.

have a good evening!

Chicklet here, and I haven't laid 4 yet, but mom thinks I will lay another. Sigh! I was having fun taking my foot toys apart today. Looks like Poppy will lay another. Her weight was 98g and mom thinks she may be able to lay one more. She is one determined hen. So what have you been up to? No good? hehehehehehe. Hope you enjoyed your day!

  Hi Bare eyes!
Chicklet here with a vote for you. We still haven't seen those videos of you. They sure are taking long to upload! I laid egg #2 at 2:55pm today. I was very rambunctious this evening.

Mom got her parcel from La Voliere. She will most definitely be ordering from them again!!!!!

Poppy is riding her scooter! Mom is amazed at how fast she learned! She is one incredible hen.

So how is mom, miss bare-eyes and the girls?

Glad that you like my picture. I am sorry to hear that you are getting lots of snow. Yuck. It was nice and mild here today, but dull out.

Ok, you got me really curious to see what you are doing on the videos! Can't wait to see them!

Mom got the parcel and I got my bball set and started to throw hoops in less than 5 mins! Sometime mom will get a video to show you. I bet you could do that really easy too! Hmmmm. Maybe that is what you are doing in the video?

I have not laid any eggs just yet, and mom is hoping that I will sleep through the night and not get her up to snuggle in the wee hours. I was good lastnight. Mom kept me up a bit longer yesterday and thinks it helped. She did today as well so we will just see about that!

Have a great evening!

  The love muffin!?
That is an understatement! hehehehehehehe. I am very amourous right now and give mom no peace. I am out right now pillaging in the bathroom.

That is great that you are getting better at flying. I just love to fly. If you behave maybe mom won't clip you anymore. You just need some practice and to gain confidence with your new found skill. It is funny what scares us. I am scared of an itty bitty black plastic spider that mom keeps on the small set of drawers. If it isn't there, I just chew on them and ruin them. I have already made a mess of the front. She keeps it sticking out from one of the drawers.

Glad to hear your weight is holding and that you are doing better. I weigh about 100g more than you right now. :) Of course, I am getting ready to lay.

have a great evening!

Chicklet here with a vote for ya! So mom uploaded some videos! We will have to keep an eye open for them!

That is great that you are getting so good at flying and are more comfortable with that wiffle ball toy. just wait until you start undoing the beads! hehehehehehehe. Mom will be sick of putting it back together for you! Mom should work with you and teach you to get your almonds out of the foraging toys that you have. I know you have it in you! Hey! We are related!

It is snowing here now. Yuck. We got about 6 inches yesterday and not sure how much so far today. Mom is tired of the snow.

I was naughty and took a chunk out of the laundry hamper. I did say, "I love you!" afterwards so I think I am covered. It's all in how you do it!

Hope you and the 'tiels are doing well! Say hi to your mom from our mom!

  Happy Holidays!
Hey Teddy - Your old buddy Artie here to wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season. I hope you get lots of good loot from under the tree. I'm wishing for more toys, a few good cashews, and lots of time with Dad. What do you want from Santa?

I'm still not picking my tummy. Mom is cautiously optimistic. She's hoping that the pain meds have something to do with this success. If it's due at least in part to the meds, my behavior is more likely organic than behavioral. That means it can be controlled with medication. Keeping my claws crossed. I hate that collar.

Rooster must be getting hormonal. He's been screaming more than usual and actually bit Mom the other day. Not a big bite, and he did a somersault on her arm and had to get back up, so it might have been accidental, but . . . Mom's not taking any chances. She's extra careful with him now and is starting to learn how to read him. If he's too wired and excited, it's not a good time to pick him up. She has to wait for a calm moment, when he's less likely to act out. Anyway, Gayle says that the mating season lasts from about beginning of December through January. It's gonna be a long few months . . .

Love to you, my bare-eyed buddy, and a kiss to your mom from mine!

Artie

I am glad that you like the parcel. That toy with the wiffle ball and beads is one of my favorites. Mom will never be done tying back the beads! hehehehehe. I also love the key chain. I was scared of the one that mom got from Tracy, but took to that one. I now love the one from Tracy too and chew on the keys. Hope you and the 'tiels have lots of fun! Poppy sleeps with that preen toy with the critter charms on it. She puts it in her night time roosting perch and gets mad if mom takes it out. She just goes and puts it right back. Cleo loves his too! We are wondering about the conure...any word yet?

So you have become an ear nibbler? Do you bite Dad too, or just mom? Mom will have to keep you off her shoulder.

I didn't get a chance to find anything in mom's room. She took me out before I could get into some mischief.

Hope you have a good day!

  Hi Teddy!
Chicklet here with a vote for you. Do you know what the conures name is? Or his age? That should be so exciting!

MOm still snickers about the 'tiels and the nubbies! That really is cute!

As for the 'to clip or not to clip' that depends on the bird, too. All of us are flighted. I used to be clipped because I would get a bit full of myself when I was yonger. Mom stopped clipping me when I was about 5 or 6 years old, because of all the feather problems I started to have when I began to lay eggs. It is most important that mom has you well trained with positive reinforcement if you are flighted and to take precautions. If you fly into windows, make sure the blinds are closed! Mom always closes them when the 'tiels are out because they would fly into them. I hope you are not getting more aggressive with the 'tiels since you are flighted. That is something to consider as well. Make sure everyone is safe. If all seems to be working well, then try it for a while and see what goes. Right now I am out and was wandering on the floor going into the bedrooms, snooping...hehehehehe. Mom has never seen me do that before and came and got me. I ran and hopped excitedly when I saw her coming! hehehehehehe. Now I am helping her blog. hehehehehe!

So far out weather is nice. We got a dump of snow and I hope that is it for a while. Mom made me a snowman and I was not too impressed with it. I did like the millet arms and almond nose though. I felt better when he melted! Enjoy your day!

  Hi Teddy!
We are getting a lot of snow too and there is more in the forecast for the next several days. I think mom will go a bit stir crazy...hehehehehe.

That is funny about the 'tiels pulling the nubbies in their cages! What smart girls you have! They must have thought they were in heaven! Maybe if mom put some glass on top of the cage and then set the nubbies on top of it so they can't reach them...just to keep you away from their cage top. See if mom can get some plexiglass cut that will fit the top of their cage. Mom did that for mine.

Today is Poppy's 2nd year anniversary here. She got a new nubbie and mini munch ball toy and was checking it out. Mom gave her a bit of millet, too.

Are you flighted or did mom clip you?

I have been pretty good and the 'love muffin' has not resurfaced yet. I was a bit amourous but not too bad. Mom has cut my almonds back and she thinks that is helping. We will see about that!

I have mastered the rings of fortune toy! Can't wait for the ones I am getting for Christmas! There are some specials going on at 'Healthybird'. Have you seen them?

I am not supposed to say but you will be getting a little package in the mail. Shhhh! Don't say I told! Mom just mailed it this morning.

Hope you and the 'tiels are well! Say 'hi' to mom from our mom!

We have about 8 inches. It is -23C and windy. Brrrr.

The 'tiels are tired now as they were yelling all morning since it is nice and bright out with all the snow.

Yesterday I bit the phone cord and gave mom a love bite on the nose. I wonder what I will think up for today?

Chicklet here with a vote for you! Glad that you like my pic! Yes, I only want almonds!

I do that too...that is put my nail in my nare. Bobby, that BE2 mom was telling you about did the same thing. Sometimes I sneeze quite a bit too in the fall. Once the heat comes on especially. Mom does too in the morning and evenings so it must be the extra dust that is blowing around. I like the humidifier. Mom finds it helps her sooooo much as well and so do I! As lond as your weight is holding and you are eating and active, I wouldn't worry. You will need to go annually for check-ups for psittacosis though. At least that is what mom has read. Always good to keep an eye on that. Most likely, you will never have problems again.

I pulled a small bloodfeather near the base of my tail and made a big mess. Mom will give me a bath later. She is glad that she can soak me now since I don't mind the blow dryer. Before she couldn't soak me because I would get so chilled my beak would chatter!

Rainy day here.

I am learning that foraging toy and love it! It is hard to get it out of the top rung and sometimes mom helps me but I can do it myself. I just like the attention! hehehehehe

  Hi Teddy
So you pick at a spot around your keel? I sometimes do that just beneath my crop so it must be around the same spot. It used to really worry mom too. Nothing ever came of it. If you are keeping at 280g isn't that what you were? You haven't lost any weight have you? You can always feel a bit of keel bone on us birds. I am sort of yelling and more demanding as well. How is mom doing? I know she has been going through a lot lately, and sometimes us birds are really good at picking up on that. Mom has been very absentminded lately...her mind is just not with me the same and it makes me yell more and I even try and give her some 'love bites' on the nose occasionally. Tell mom not to worry. Sometimes us 'toos just have to be different. Mom notices with me that I change with the different seasons. I am going toward breeding season, so act differently than when I am molting or even in the summer. Your mom will probably be able to notice that with you as well. Take care bare!

Chicklet here with a vote! I did manage to get some almonds out of my new toy! The top rung is the hardest and mom needs to help encourage me a bit to do that one. Won't be long and I should be able to do it myself! She took out the turn and learn logs, which are my favorite. I had lots of yummy things to eat yesterday and had a bulging crop. I also got more almonds yesterday and that was great! Mom has me rationed to 2/day now. Sigh!

What spot are you preening? I like to do that near my crop, but I don't pick out feathers. Make sure mom doesn't fixate too much on it, or it can reinforce it. Are you plucking?

Mom will have to teach you how to use your foraging toys too! They are so fun!

We had some nice weather yesterday and it looks to be nice again today. Sunny/cloudy. At least no rain!

Enjoy your day!

Chicklet here and I hope you and yours have a great day and that mom is feeling better and can enjoy the festivities. I got my rings of fortune and ohhhhh! They look interesting! mom will have to help me with them. The 'tiels got some new toys as well. It is dull and rainy here.

Enjoy your day!

  Hey Teddy Bare!
chicklet here with a vote for you! At least you mom will get the car parts in sooner than we will. Mom will talk to them again on the 13th as she has an appointment to get her winter tires put on. Most likely there is nothing wrong with our car, but you never know and mom won't feel safe until that new chip is in. She is not pleased about it either as she is going to be rather grounded. She will still use it around town for groceries etc, but nothing else. I think we will be lucky if we get it fixed this year. Mid November is a long time to wait. They said that the parts won't be in until at least then. Mom will have to keep checking too.

Glad to hear that Caitlin is settling and hope it stays that way. Mom enters all the info for the birds each year into the computer to keep track of egg laying cycles etc. that way she has a record of everything.

Hope mom feels better and that you get lots of skritches to compensate.

hugs,

Chicklet and friends

  Hi Teddy!
So you got the same letter! It is upsetting! Doesn't make you feel very safe to drive it, that is for sure! Mom had to go for a back appointment and was so upset as she didn't want to drive her car. It turns out that her friend needed to go too, so they both went today in mom's friends car. Mom wonders when she will get it fixed. There will be such a line up of people waiting for that part and Toyota will be so busy! Hope she can get it done this year!

I pulled a blood feather on my back near my neck and made a red ring around the collar when I moved my head. Mom wasn't too pleased. She will give me a bath tomorrow. Us 'toos! Teddy! Don't be like me!

Sorry to hear mom has a cold. Get better fast.

Hope Caitlin is going to be ok. Maybe try putting her on a diet if she keeps up. It was only a little while ago that she laid all those eggs. Mom marks on the calendar when we lay eggs so she can tell how long ago it was. maybe mom should do that for Caitlin. You don't want her to overdo it. It is good to know how many they lay in a year and to keep track of it.

Hope you had a good day of mischief!

hugs,

chicklet and friends

  Hi Teddy!
Oh boy! Hope Caitlin is not going to start up again. Poppy is a bit squeaky but not too much. Her weight is 98g, so mom is keeping an eye on her.

Mom had a dentist app't as a filling fell out in early Sept. She hopes she isn't going to need a root canal. $$$$$$$$$$$ ouch!

Mom also got notice that all 2008 Toyota corollas are being recalled because of a faulty chip in the engine and it could cause and accident. Mom went out to talk to them today and they said the chances of her having a problem is slim, it is just that Toyota is going overboard on safety and is replacing every one. The parts won't be in until Nov. Remember mom saying that if there were 100 items on the shelf, she always picks the faulty one? hmmmm.

Five grizzlies were relocated just recently from Nelson...One where mom lives and four where mom walks daily! There have been bear warning signs in town, but mom didn't know they were grizzlies! A mother and four cubs. She charged a motorist. You just don't want to run into grizzlies. They have never been in town before...ever.

What a day! Hope you are enjoying yours!

  Ok...
Now you got mom curious. What box are you talking about? The bird food order, or do you know something that we don't? Mom is going to give me one of the foraging toys that she got for Thanksgiving. Most likely the rings of fortune! hehehehehe. I think that one sounds intersting.

You sound like me. I am yelling right now and mom pulled my cage into the hall so she could go on the computer...hehehehehehe. I just want my way:)

Oh boy! MOm doesn't want you to mention the love muffin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not yet! oh no! I don't think she is ready for that! hehehehehe.

You were naughty to bite mom on the ear. Mom is more careful about letting me on her shoulder right now, because of that. She knows me too well when I am rambunctious.

Mom emailed you about that cool video you sent, but sent it by mistake to Margie. Not sure if you got it too. Oops.

This is the first year that you have really been feeling like a normal BE2 since you were sick before. I am sure that mom will be in for some surprises. hehehehehehe.

Enjoy your day...and explain to mom what your mom meant about that box, because she wants to know!

hugs,

Chicklet and 'tiels

  Bare eyes!
Chicklet here! Sorry to hear that you broke a bloodfeather, and yes, I do know what a mess it makes on a white bird! Sometimes that happens more with clipped wing feathers. I seem to get bothered by my wing feathers when they are coming in and overpreen them too.

You are naughty to have bit mom's ear. Mom doesn't want to say it, but she saw me getting a bit 'amourous' if you know what I mean a couple times so she is keeping an eye on me. It is getting near my breeding cycle.

This whole week I just didn't want to be in my cage and would yell my head off...even when mom was in the room! She said I was a little brat, but I would just say to her "I love you!" I just feel frisky and like having more attention. Mom was just too preoccupied with the computer and waiting for it to be repaired!

Weather here has been gorgeous!

Have a great evening!

hugs,

Chicklet and friends

  Hi Teddy!
Chicklet here. Another gloomy rainy day. Maybe mom will make us some more toys. I am out right now and impatiently waiting for mom. I just wouldn't settle when she put me in this am. hehehehehe.

So far the 'puter is fine. Hope it stays that way.

Take care with those jingle balls. You are a real wild woman! You go Teddy!

Enjoy your day!
