Hi! My name is Ozzie

I am a Solomon Islands Eclectus from New Palestine, IN.

baby bird, mamma's baby

7 years old   M

Solomon Islands Eclectus

apple, orange or red bell peppers, pecans, sunflower seeds, star anise

Anywhere my mommie is, or on my tree stand.

I don't like it when Merlin (the umbrella cockatoo in our house) screams!

She holds me a lot, and lets me spend a lot of time out of my cage. She also lets me eat right off her plate!

I love to fly to the top of the refrigerator..

  Hi Ozzie
Its good you at least have the bird fair since no other places around you for bird stuff.There are stores around here but not real big ones and prices are pretty high too. At least the one bird show in Irwin the prices are good and the one I went to yesterday the prices are reasonable. Gus nails were so long I did trim them some today. The one cage I got chi chi the one store wanted 200 dollars more there then at the warehouse I went to yesterday. Big difference!! How often do you get to go to Michigan to shop? Did you live there before or just have your friend that lives there? I have always lived in this area. My sister lived in Wy but sold their ranch and rv all the time now so she is here for the summer and then in Arizona for the winter. We have traveled alot across the country too. I love St. Martin the best though of all the places we have been.
Today was Chi chi bird day and she had a nice one too. Mom made her a birdie bread cake and I got some too. Mom got me a foot toy too so I wouldn’t feel bad but I didn’t care since it was Chi chi’s day and was just happy she had such a good bird day today. The best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or even touched they must be felt with the heart and you my friend are definitely felt with my heart. My door is always open so stop in and brawk with me a while….I will leave the light on for you just like Motel 6 hihihi. I stole your votey button…Your forever friend, Gus

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

Mom made me a birdie bread cake and she got me a toy that holds paper in it so now I can have paper all the time…well as long it has paper in it hihihi. Mom even got Gus a little foot toy but I shared some of my cake with him too. The best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or even touched they must be felt with the heart and you my friend are definitely felt with my heart. My door is always open so stop in and cheech with me a while ..I will leave the light on for you just like Motel 6 hihihi. I stole your votey button ….Your friend forever, Chi chi

  hello
thanks for stopping by... I do love my Eclectus and I am sure you do too... He cracks me up when he mimics my voice. And melts my heart when he says "I love you". I too would love to have a house full of Ekkies.
Thats great that Ozzie never bites... Oscar will occasionally bite when he is tired and wants to go to bed... So we learned to let him be after 8pm. Otherwise, he is an awesome bird and I am sooooo glad we took the time to turn a "Crazy" bird into an awesome pet.
here is a vote for you!

Come visit me, Oscar, Chloe, Conner, Pepe & Beaker.

  Aww Ozzie
You look so good in those pictures and love the top one of you too. I will get some flax seed oil for bothteh birds when I get to GNC. Thanks for the help on it. I got red palm oil and Gus loves to be sprayed when the sweeper is running so once in awhile I spray him with this red palm oil and water and it makes his feathers nice too plus he preens himself and then digests some too which is good for them. Chi chi doesnt like sprayed and feels I am punishing her when I spray her so dont do it to her. There is a place local here that has a bird social every month and its this Sunday and was planning on going but snow is moving in tomorrow so will have to see by Sunday. They have all kinds of toys and treats and birds for sale too. Then another place in Irwin about an hour from here has a bird show 2xs a year and I like to go there too. Not many other ones around though. Do you have any by you? I made Gus some salad this evening but he doesnt seem to like veggies as well as fruits but eats some things out of it though. He is taking his nap right now so pretty quiet. What big city in Indiana are you closest to? Been thru there many times but not sure where you are located at as far as Gary, Indiana or places like that. We are about 30 miles from Pittsburgh and about an hour or so from Youngstown Ohio. I got a bath today and the best part then was the blow drying of my feathers. That always feels so good. Mom plugged my perch back in today when she saw me on a few times. I even sat real still a minute or two cause it was warm on my feet. Give me another month and just might get on it even longer hihihi . The best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or even touched they must be felt with the heart and you my friend are definitely felt with my heart. My door is always open so stop in and brawk with me a while….I will leave the light on for you just like Motel 6 hihihi. I stole your votey button…Your forever friend, Gus

  Hi Ozzie
Yes I have had the crazy corn mixtures and Gus likes them too. He also likes this one peanuts and coconut and is 12 grain and not enriched or fortified. It is made by www.whitefeatherbirdproduct.com and they have other kinds too. I got it at a bird show. You mentioned flax seed oil. Where do you get it and why do you add it? Yes Gus loves to eat but doesnt seem that keen on salad stuff but am going to start making him one as I make ours every nite too. I do cook Gus an egg occassionally too. He seems to like the boiled eggs shell and all better then the cooked ones though. Him and I share an apple at night too. Gus also loves chicken bones and eats the marrow out of them but only give him ones I bake and not fried like from KFC. I was giving Gus beaky appetites that you cook and see alot of them are fortified too. I think because he loves to eat so well I was giving him too much of the good things and that is where we got in problems with the toe tapping so when he does get any of these things then its once in awhile and not often. I have bought the soup bean mix and cooked them for him and yes he loves them too. Thanks for all your help!! The skin sis and little one came to visit this evening with us and the little one sure does keep me busy!! Mom made soup and I flew off my cage twice trying to see what was all in it and why it smelled so good hihihi. Oh I think Chi chi is a little perturbed at me cause I was playing with her cardboard box when mom cleaned out our houses. I have no idea what she sees in them things but tried my best to pretend I liked it hihihi. I only made the Cheech made though I think. The best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or even touched they must be felt with the heart and you my friend are definitely felt with my heart.

  Hi Ozzie
So what birds came to your house to live first? Mom had fish, chameleon,turtles and Chi chi and the chameleon died then moms mom was sick so mom gave the turtles away since she was at the nursing home all day every day and not much time. Then moms mom died and when mom was cleaning out the house the fish tank gasket went bad and filter was leaking so mom gave the fish to skin sis to put in her tank. By the time it all slowed down here mom missed her mom alot and had been with her mom alot doing so much for her so had alot of time on her hands and that is when she decided she would like to get an ekkie. She called around and found I was coming to the store the next day with another ekkie so she was at the store when they opened. When she saw me at 2 weeks she put money on me then. the other ekkie was a female that was 6 weeks old I think it was. Mom didnt want a female cause Chi chi lays eggs and sure didnt want two like that hihihi. I am very lovable too but dont try to feed mom. I did give my skin sis hubby lots of kisses and tell him I love him on New years eve hihihi. I would beaky him and then leave a loud smack for a kiss. Mom does that to me so learned from her but never do that to her.I do say tickle tickle and laugh like mom then. I had been giving Gus spagetti and macaroni and other treats that was too much fortified and he started to toe tap so i really watch now and make sure its not fortified and not treats but once in a blue moon. He did stop after I quit the fortified stuff and sure glad of that. What kind of pasta do you feed Ozzie? I am thinking the wheat kind might be ok but still scared to try it on him. I wonder if this higgins sunburst d'lites can be bought any where like for me for Gus? Where I bought Gus they didnt know much about ekkies for she set me up with colored zupreems and even vitamins and found out on here those are bad for ekkies so got help from others and got him on volkmans although I did buy some pretty bird food but found out its not good for them since that too. I learned to tell mom by by and kept telling her that today. I sure am glad she didn’t go though hihihi I am picking up some words on my own a lot now and mom can’t believe how much faster I am learning them too. I go the long way around in my cage to my food so I don’t happen to step on that new perch. Guess I am getting my exercise mom says. The best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or even touched they must be felt with the heart and you my friend are definitely felt with my heart. My door is always open so stop in and brawk with me a while….I will leave the light on for you just like Motel 6 hihihi. I stole your votey button…Your forever friend, Gus

Wow you really talk alot and enjoyed seeing what foods you were on too. Thanks so much for sharing all this with me and now we know what I should and can say hihihi mom will be talking to me all the time to say them things hihihi. Food is important to me hihihi..I love it!! do you have a female ekkie too? We have a lovebird that is 7 so the inn here is full with the two of the fids for now. I wouldnt mind having a grey sometime maybe but not now cause we are full.I was stuck in my cage a lot this morning and sure wasn’t happy about that but mom said she had to get her drivers license picture renewed so it wouldn’t expire. I sure am glad us fids don’t need a license to fly.hihihihi Mom said the first picture wasn’t very good so the lady took another one and it was better. Of all the gifts life could send, the best is knowing you’re my friend. My door is always open so come on in and sit on the extra perch and brawk with me…your always welcome!! Vote 4 you….Love ya!! Gus

Do you talk much? I say hello,peek a boo, give me a kiss, my name is Gus,I love you, I'm a good boy, I'm sorry, Thank you, wake up and do the wolf whistle. What kind of bird food do you eat? Mom has me on volkmans now and has a few left of pretty bird but will stick with volkmans. I sure hope we can chat and compare since we are the same kind of fids.There is only Chi chi and I here and she is a lovie. She has been here almost 7 years now but I came here when I was 3 months old and mom bought me at 2 weeks so knew mom a long time hihihi. Tonight when mom was cleaning out our cages I got on her shoulder cause I love to help her put new food in our bowls and hey some one has to supervise it all so might as well be me hihihi. Well mom was blocking my view with her head with what she putting or doing in our bowls so I got on her head and had a birds eye view of it all and dad told mom he loved her new hat(me!!) hihihi. Of all the gifts life could send, the best is knowing you’re my friend. My door is always open so come on in and sit on the extra perch and brawk with me…your always welcome!! Vote 4 you….Love ya!!
