Mom and Dad saw some birds their friend had, and fell in love with her cockatiels. When I hatched, they picked me out and started visiting me every other day.They were a part of my life from the beginning, and after five weeks of learning how to feed me, and how to care for me, they set up my birdie nursery and brought me home..

Hi! My name is Feathers

I am a Cockatiel from Springfield, MO.

Mom and Dad sometimes call me Taterhead because I LOVE taters of any kind - baked, boiled, mashed,raw. If it's taters, I'll eat it! Hold the salt and butter, please. Just taters!

11 years old   M

Cockatiel

I love potatoes, cooked grits, and fresh millet from the healthfood store.

I like to hang out on the play gym Dad made and hung from the ceiling. I can see everything that's going on,and even keep a (safe) eye on the cat and the dog. I also like to hide out under the keyboard, on my mom's knee, when she's on the computer.

Having to eat my pellets before I get my seed.

Mom stays home with me ,so I get to hang with her, and not have to stay in my cage all day. She makes my toys and lets me help, and lets me take a shower with her every day. We have lots of fun together, and she makes sure the cats and the dog don't bother me.

I will only chew on one end of my cuttlebone. When one end gets worn down, I'll climb on the outside of my cage to try to chew on the back side of it. Mom tries flipping the cuttlebone so I will chew the other end, but I just pull it off the bars and throw it on the cage floor. I like to climb UP my ropes and ladders, but I won't climb DOWN. I will get to the top, and then squawk for someone to get me down, so I can climb up again..

If you're doing it, I want to do it,too..

Actually I was talking about you perching on your dad's hat that I found interesting. You sure do have a great set-up though. Mom and Dad must love you very much. Gotta fly home for now.

  Hello
I have no idea what kind of tree. Mom took it from me today. Apparently she does not like that I chew on it so much. I was just climbing but it tastes so good. Oh well me and Link will survive. Hope you had a nice weekend. Also, watch out for what kind of plant they get you...some can hurt us...and all can if we eat too much of it.-Zel.

Come visit me, RIP Emily, Zel & Link.

  Hey yeah it was you in the magazine. I read it and it said your town and it sure it you. :) Cool! Congrats, I was confused by the Fortune thing? I forgot about that ice damaging you suffered.:( That is awful to still have to cough up some of your own money to fix it, but atleast there was some coverage. Plus the computer issue. I will pray and hope and cross my wings for you and your mom that you get that computer and program. We would be sad to not be able to talk with you anymore. But we do understand some days are not good for your mommy to see it and all that. Let's hope that program comes soon. It's always fun talking to you guys. Oh yeah my new toys, yes I love em' . yeah even me sometimes I get a little scared if a toy is really big of wierd looking but eventually I get where I just have to check it out :) ZAZOO xoxoxox

  Hi Feathers!
Here's a vote, my fellow mini blind muncher! My mom gets pretty irritated with some of my decorating, but it's nothing compared to how Granny reacted when I ate the front off of her hardwood bookcase. I mean, really, if they didn't want it refined by my illustrious beak, then why let me sit right in front of it for days!!! I thought it looked just lovely, but they just couldn't appreciate my decorative flair. Years ago, they had a really special budgie whom, I could tell, had decorated their ceiling fan, curtain rod and many leather books. How was I to know they wouldn't like the new face of the bookcase? Anyway, my mom seems to get more angry at herself than with me. She mumbles things like, "how did I let you get clear over there!?" and such. I'm so glad you visited me! I love cockatiels-- you are just lovely!

Come visit me, Sarabi & Frosty the Keet with the little pink feet.

  Snuggles throws a fit when he wants to be blow dried after a bath. He stomps up and down. I tried throwing a fit like him just like him and mom laughed at me! She blow dried me too but I think my feelings are hurt. Who says I can't throw fits like the big birds? ~TAZ

  Cody was very sad to leave me! He only gets to come on the weekends. Mom promised to take very good care of me though. He said he has spring break soon so then he can spend lots of time with me. I can't wait!

  Hi Feathers'Thanks for the vote, one back for you . So nice that your weather is better too and the sun is shining. So mommy can still see the glare of that sun then? Yeah my mommy does plenty of silly things, oh yeah. Did you know she is afraid of lightning and moves here with there is alot of it and she is terrified of bees and runs like hell. I just try to bite them when they come near. Hope you are enjoying your sunny day. :) We are too, almost 80 here and sunny like usual.

  Hi feathers:
OH HEE HEE you learn that s--t word oops hhahahhaha. I wonder where you learnt that from, right? LOL. And now you meow cool. I bet the cat is happy to be in the house with the cold out there. Even down here the temp only went to 54 today brr brr cold for us. And for your mommys' eyes hurting aw :( I didn't know she has pain and that much discomfort too. Sounds like you are really such a good bird to comfort your mommy when she really needs it. I know too when my mommy is sad or upset, that's when I want to cuddle more too. I'm so glad your mommy has you for a great companion and friend for her and us too here. :) I am still cracking up at the pic with your daddy sleeping hee hee Does he know that pic is on here? HAHAHHAHHH Your mommy is funny HEE HEE :)

  Hi Feathers
We saw your blog on Zazoo's page and we are cold too. We told Zazoo that we have lots of the big white poop out here in MA too. It has been super cold, like up to -15 degrees w/the wind chills. Today it was 33 and we were waiting for people to break out their swimsuits! Glad we stay in our birdroom where it is 73 all the time. Keep Warm Wishes from- The whole flock
