My momma came in and asked to play with me but I belonged to someone else. So she took my buddy Bibble (isn't that a funny name). My mommy soon got a job at the shop I lived in and after about 3 months she asked to take me home since the other guy never showed up to take me home. So for 5 years now I have been living with my mommy and my best bud Bibble..

Hi! My name is Skipper

I am a Cockatoo from Sterling, VA.

Skipadiddledoo

11 years old   M

Cockatoo

I love Almonds in the shell. My momma hides them from me all over my room. It's like easter every day here.

I love to hang out on the stairs and in the bathroom. I sit on my playstand in the kitchen when mom is cooking or cleaning. I hate being in the "bird room". Even though there are a lot of things for me to do in there, I just can't help but look for new areas to improve with my beak. This may seem kinda funny but when I do my best work my momma starts acting all crazy and then gives me an escort back to my room so that I can rest from all my hard work. Yeah, life is good.

I don't like when other birds get cute with my momma

I love that my mommy loves me so much. She has others like me in her house but I think I am her favorite. And if she ever forgets that I just remind her by snuggling up in her neck while she watches TV.

I love to hop up and down the stairs and occasionally much on the banister. It seems no matter how much I carve off, I just can't get it to look right..

If it's chewable, chew it!.

Wow, that is funny. Well we will see you soon, cuz I need a wing and nail trim. It was a good crowd at the seminar. My Mom is going to some more soon. Maybe we will see you there too.

Ha ha. That is so funny. My Mom was sitting right in front of your Mom. My Mom asked her if Lolo was up for adoption. Is your Mom still working at Featherheads? My Mom just went in there last week and filled out an aplication and now she thinks maybe it was your Mom she spoke to!

Come visit me, Marley.

Thanks for writing back. Wow, we both came from Featherheads. It's really cool that you have so many fid friends at home too. Mom would really like more too, but can't right now. I wouldn't like it all, cuz I am a little spoiled, but she would bring home more birds anyway if she could. So your Mom fosters for Pheonix Landing? That is really nice. My Mom just went to a seminar hosted by them on Saturday. They are a really great organization. Hope to talk more. See ya and here is a vote!

Come visit me, Marley.

  Hey there
Hi Skipper,
You sure are a pretty bird. My Mom and I live in Falls Church,but we used to live in Sterling until last May. Did your Mom find you at Featherheads by any chance? I am glad you got to go home with her. What kind of crazy guy would leave you there? Anyway, my Mom is always looking for people in the area to trade info with and have play dates. Haven't found any friends yet, but it would be nice. Glad to see you here on BC and hope to squawk with you soon.

Come visit me, Marley.

  (Ö> Hiya Skipadiddledoo :(
[That’s the ‘Shortcut Key’ for a frown, don’tcha know? Mom didn’t! She had to look it up!!] ~~ This a just a FINE 'How d'ya do?' now isn't it?! Your mom asks how things are in 'the burg' and I gotta answer that I'm in trouble! Is that news to her? Or is that the status quo around these parts? Anyways, I'll be more'n happy to chat about this loverly burg, and my mom's choice of graphics software too, 'soon as I get myself outta this jam I'm in! ~~ I’m a not-so-very jovial fid today. (Hence the frown.) Got m’self in BIG TROUBLE at a party Saturday night. Somebirdy was squawkin’ about bein’ happy to get away from some ‘furry four-leggers’ (felines, don’tcha know). Didn’t wanna hafta spend time with ‘em at a social event too. But I figured it might be more like home for ‘em if’n I offered the use of one or two of our NINE at the party. But, just in case that idea wasn’t received very well, I offered an alternative too—nice guy ain’t I?! ~~ I reasoned that, since fids are really the ideal comp’ny for fids, maybe my Fister (`Ü´ Ruby Francesca Begonia) would make a better companion. THAT’S WHERE I GOT M’SELF IN DEEP DOO-DOO!!! ~~ Well…SOMEHOW my remarks got back to my very own, sweet little pain-in-the- … … my Fister, and she got all hurt ‘n’ embarrassed and ev’rything. And tho’ she never said anything to ‘Her Momma’, Mom decided I had pushed it just a little too far this time, and I’d hafta make it up to Rubes. ~~ So now I’ve gotta see if’n I can redeem myself in both Ruby’s AND Mom’s eyes. So here’s what I’m askin’ all my featheriends to do: Whether you were at the party or not, you know me well enough to know what a jokester I am. Could ya do a pal a favor and stop by Ruby’s page (and I even broke down and put her Avatar in my ‘CR Jake’s Jungle o’ Jokers’ Aviary for easy access!) and give me a good recommend? It’d sure help me out. (This solitary confinement cage Mom’s got me in ‘til I can make it up to the Rubester ain’t exactly COMFORTABLE…if ya know what I mean!) Ya don’t hafta worry about sendin’ me a note. I’ll know ya love me by seein’ your glowin’ reports on Ruby’s page. Just convince The Rubicube to love me too! ~~ By the way, Mom’s also promised “Boo Boo” (…what a name! YUCK!!) that she’ll be doin’ somethin’ special with her to help smooth her ruffled feathers too. Keep an eye out for that. I’m sure it’ll work in my favor as well. AaaaaAA!! Oh yeah, and if’n your ‘Vote Button’ is missin’, I hid it on Ruby’s page. You can pick it up there when ya go to ‘talk me up’ to her! Scream at ya again soon! CR Jake <Ö)

Come visit me, (Ö> Charles Riley Jake ~ AaaaaAA! & ..

  Hey there Skipper!!
You are one beautiful yet cantankerous Too aren't you. I see you have your own Name up in lights behind you and your obviously mommies favored child. Just look how she has put your photo up on the web for the world to see!!

I know how challenging it is to get our owners to understand how important it is that they let us finish the remodeling projects we start on the woodwork that desperately just needs that artists touch. ;-)

I'll see you around the channel and you have a great Xmas and a Happy New Year!!

Come visit me, Dayo.
