A coworker told me she was on sale on the internet. I went to visit her on a Saturday, she had plucked all of her feathers because of a lack f attention. The next Saturday she was home. The love story began... UNFORTUNATLY MOMMY HAD TO SELL ME TO A GREAT NEW MOMMY...I know have a big brother (blue and gold maccaw) and my new mommy and daddy have much more time for me. They also have a bog house and no neighbor will complain!!!!.

  Hello!
Hi Ziggy!

Thanks for stopping by to see Abbey, Keno and, Blackjack in Oshkosh. It's getting warmer here finally, we go to go outside on the porch in our cage for some fresh air for the first time in a long time this week. We like your photo, looks like you have fun with empty bottles like we do. To answer your question about our birdie 'tower', it is made from PVC pipes. We have three different ones. They are very easy to make. Just go to the hardware store, get some connectors and tubes, and cut them to make a frame. It's pretty cheap, you don't really even need to glue or screw the pieces together, and if you mess up you just cut another piece. To make the surfaces less slippery, we use masking tape rolled out on the tubes for our feet to have a better grip. Well take care, thanks for the vote and c-ya!

Come visit me, Abbey, Blackjack & Keno.

Mommy wouldn't do it if our house wasn't so small....but these are my very first flight feathers and daddy wanted me to get used to being able to fly before they cut them....and as long as I stay out of trouble I can keep them....but as soon as I get into trouble like my big brother Magnum did...snip they go. Our house is very small.....and I only fly directly to my mom or to something I'm familiar with....so mommy says it's ok for now. Mommy said if something happened she wouldn't know what to do...I've only been a part of her life for 5 months but she said she can't picture her life without me. Me...I'm a momma's boy so I have to agree with her. She even takes me into the kitchen when they play games at night...sometimes I get down and steal the stuff from the game but other times I'm a real good boy and just sit on mom's shoulders or her head. Well my friend...I will talk later....your friend...Nibs

I could stay away from an uncle but not my mom hihihi. Mom is watching with her eagle eye to see if it happens again. She took out the wooden toys in my cage and put plastic ones in it so I dont chew them and not be watched as well. If it keeps up will ask the vet about it then but I am feeling fine and am my usual self--- what ever that is hihihi.
Today mom was cleaning in the back rooms so I ventured to go find her. I was sure she was sitting at the computer where she and I usually sit but instead it was dad so he set me on the chair and sat with him a spell instead. Mom just laughed when she saw us sitting there together hihihi. I think the cheech and I are getting to be pretty palsy walsy with dad and wont be long till we really have him around our toesies!! Fids are one of God’s sweetest gifts!! Stop in and visit anytime my friend and sit on the extra perch and brawk a spell with me. My house is like Motel 6 and I will leave the light on for you. V4U….Love ya!!! Gus

Thanks for the help. I am not sick and mom isnt sure if I am trying to give her some of my food or if I even ate any of the wood but did take the wooden things out of my cage and put all plastic things in there for now so that woman got a good eyeball and is always watching me now. It hasnt happened but 2xs and not for quite a while now so will see. Today mom was cleaning in the back rooms so I ventured to go find her.

Oh as soon as I hear noise I want uncovered so I can see what is going on. I sure dont want to miss anything. Gus seems fine now but mom took all the wooden toys out of his cage just in case that he was chewing and swallowing them. Again he might of been feeding mom hihihi.The weather here is quite a mixture of winter. We have had snow, freezing rain and rain. Needless to say a lot of schools were cancelled or delayed. Mom kept thinking about going to the Ymca to walk on the treadmill but thought she better stay at home instead. Fids are on of God’s sweetest gifts!!

Ha ha ha....that is a good one...but yes...I already do that...every time mommy leaves the food or water door open I escape...she especially hates it when she's getting ready for bed because then she has to chase me....and I love being chased. I got my flight feathers all in now so Mommy tries to teach me to fly to her...but so far it's not working....the good thing is that whenever I do fly I land right on her. Are you a kissy face? I am....mommy loves to kiss on me....and I kiss her back...I also love French Fries...mommy bakes them most of the time....so I don't get all that fried crap in me...but there's nothing like a nice warm french fry! Well my friend...I have to go for now but I will be back to talk soon....your friend....Nibs

Hope the move isnt too far from grandma so you can visit her often. Mom took all my wooden toys out of my cage cause for some reason I am chewing them up which is fine but mom thinks I am eating some of them and that might be what is making me sick. Mom isn’t even sure that is why I threw up but thought she saw a piece of wood in with it. If any one has any help on this we sure would like to know about it. Any of your fids chew and eat the wood and is it ok if they do that? We know some woods are fruit flavored so do birds actually eat them? Fids are one of God’s sweetest gifts!!

Its always exciting to have your own house so glad you are moving in April.Mom went today to make cards with her cousin and some friends but dad kept us company here. We are to get bad weather so a lot of schools had delays or were closed. In fact gr girl and skin sis thought school was on time but waiting for the bus the big kids went by and then they knew something was going on. They went back to the house and then saw there was a 2 hour delay. Since there was no snow skin sis never thought to look to see if there was any delays!! Fids are on of God’s sweetest gifts!! Stop in to visit anytime my friend and sit on the extra perch and cheech a spell with me. My house is like Motel 6 and I will leave the light on for you. V4U -- Love ya!! Chi chi

WOW! No wonder you don't talk....from English to French huh? Well if you pick up the French language you will be the smartest birdie I know....I bet you still won't forget to be naughty though! I know I never will! The other night when my family was in the kitchen eating dinner, I threw a terrible fit....I hate it when they leave me in the living room and they go eat yummy stuff and I don't eat with them...so I flew off my cage onto my brother's cage and tried to bite his toes. Daddy had to run and protect him...he's bigger than me and he bites alot harder than me...but for some reason I scare him! ha ha ha....I guess the naughtiness is what I do best! Well my naughty friend...I will be back to talk soon....your friend...Nibs

You are funny. I do all those tricks too...oh..and at bedtime...as soon as I see the t.v. go off...I start running around the top of my cage super fast so mommy can't catch me and then I get to stay up later. I also like to fly off my cage onto my little skin sister's head....and she doesn't like it...but I do it cuz I'm naughty. How come you don't talk yet? You sure are pretty too...mommy said she really wants one of your breed too....but we have no room...and currently no money as mommy lost her job a few months ago...but at least daddy has his!!!! Well my friend....I have to run for now...but I will be talking soon...your friend...Nibs

Chi chi gets in her bowl of water mom gives her for a bath if and the if is if she wants to or not. She dunks in good but Mom puts me under the sprayer in the sink every once in awhile then blow dries me in the winter and summer we sit outside in the sun. Sometimes if you hit the refresh button up top it will make it come up so dont know if that will help you or not but you could try it. Mom had to go to the dentist today to get them teeth cleaned. She was happy everything else is ok …right now at least. Dad had to get his eyes examined today but I didn’t have to be in lockdown too long till he came back home so that was good. The sun sure is shining bright and we got 50 degrees out there too. Wont last long though!! You’re a wonderful friend in so many ways, and I want you to know I’m thankful every day.

Oh I see...we thought it was a heated one like Gus has but wont get on and use hihihi. Grandma is going to miss you if you move Ziggy. The temperature got up to almost 50 today so the snow sure is melting and the sun is so nice and warm too. Tomorrow is back to the cold again though and snow but only an inch tomorrow and another inch on Sunday so that shouldn’t be too bad.

When I was little I didnt have good balance but loved to be on moms shoulder and now I can balance pretty good so she lets me sit there with her. chi chi gets on mom and dads shoulders too but not their hair hihihi. It was a warmer day to day so mom said I needed a bath too. She gave me a nice warm bath then blow dried me and let me sit in the window in the sun a while. Ahhh it felt so good.

It's great to meet you Ziggy...I've always got room for new friends! Yes, I'm very naughty...but I guess I'm like you...because even at my nautiest mommy doesn't punish me..but even at my absolute worst...if she punishes me by putting me in the cage I'm usually only in there for at the most 10 minutes because while I'm inside I yell to her that I'm the baby over and over again and she feels bad so she lets me out! I'm always open to more tricks my friend...so please let me know what you have up your feathers! Here's a vote for you....your new friend...Nibs

  Hi Ziggy
I like to compete when mom is on the phone or she is in the computer room with out me then keep yelling till either dad takes me in with her or mom comes out for me. Its a win win situation hihihi. Today when mom cleaned our cages I went down stairs with her while she scrubbed the parts all up and made sure she did them good hihihi. Then we came up stairs and I wanted to help while she filled our bowls to make sure she did it just right. I got a top view….yep right in moms hair and watched it all. You can see that picture on the bottom of my page cause dad took it of us. Out of 3 that was the best one and its not too great mom says but you can see I am watching to make sure mom is doing it j-u-s-t right hihihi. You’re a wonderful friend in so many ways, and I want you to know I’m thankful every day. Stop in and visit with me a spell, the door is always open and an extra perch just waiting on you my friend.
