I took my son to a local breeder to pick out a parakeet for his third birthday. It didn't take him long to choose her and he immediately named her Basil. He just loves her!.

Hi! My name is Basil

I am an Australian Parakeet from Henderson, NV.

Little One

5 years old   F

Australian Parakeet

Pumpkin and millet.

I love looking at myself in the mirror.

I get upset when my mate Baxter thinks he should eat millet before me.

I love that my mommy and Caden always take the time to talk to me and tell me how pretty I am.

Hanging upside down from the roof of my cage..

Always take time to view the world upside down at least once a day..

  Hi there Basil
Forgive the belated reply, but our owners been really occupied.
Who says girls can't be as pretty as boys? Maybe we dont whistle & sing like Treasure, Bungee & Simon, but I (Lily), Monique & little Mojo can outshine them in the beauty dept. And, were sweeter, too.
We couldnt decide who to vote for here, so we thought our owner should vote for all 3, & she did!

Come visit me, Monique, Treasure, Lily : Thanking all of voting me BOTW!, Eloise, Simon, Mojo, Quentin & Bungee.

  HI BASIL
Hey Basil -- just popping over to say "Hi" and send you a vote. Just got done saying HI to Baxter. How have you been? I've been OK, Jakey is done with all his school tests now so I see him alittle more. Can't wait for summer so he's home all day. Wish Mom would let me play outisde with him, but she says if I want to fly I have to stay inside. I don't always listen when she calls me so I have no one to blame but me, I guess. Gunna go find someone to steal some chips from now so gotta fly -- take care and I'll fly by again soon. GO GREEN -- Kawi

Come visit me, Kawi.

She goes back every 3 days and have her iron tested and it's getting back to normal and staying there for now.. I bet your mom enjoyed her Spring break..

Awww you and Baxter in love yep it's that time of year.. I think you 2 would make cute babies and maybe you can sweet talk your mom into letting you have one clutch of babie tell her it in our nature to have babies hehe.. tomorrow is dad's birthday so they are going out to eat tonight cause dad has to work late tomorrow so that means left over for us hehe.. Not to much going on here today so will leave you a vote and take care of your mommy.. No new words yet mom is trying to get me to say good morning..

  HI BASIL
Mom is doing better day by day and they still do not know what is causing her iron and suger count to be so low at times.. All the test they have done is all came back neg and good.. So the doct just has her taking iron pills and suger pills everday for a while until they can get her suger and iron back to normal and it stays that way.. We got 4 inches of snow last night so dad and skin brothers are out snow blowing and shoveling it off the sidewalks and driveways.. Not to much to squawk about cause we have just been hanging with the family all week.. Oh ya the most important part I said my first words on Feb 24th and I have been talking and picking things up from the other birds.. I say what ya doing, thank you. by by. come here and pretty bird I still mumble once in a while.. leaving you a vote and lots of blue hugs.. LUCY BLUE

I wanted to let you know that we are not ignoring all of you but mommy is reall rally sick.. She got sick at work and ened up in the emergancy room on Wednesday morning at first they thought she was having a heart attack but it was not that.. Her sugar and iron count is so low that it was at a danagerous level and she was thowing up with blood in it the vomit.. She is doing a little better today.. The doct does not know what caused this but they have ran test after test on mom and every test has came back ok.. She has to take iron and suger pills daily until they figure out what is going on with her.. She will be going in every 3 days to have her suger and iron tested she is not happy about that.. But since she has been taking the iron and suger pills she is feeling lots better.. She has a small alsur ( not sure the spelling).. So we might not be on here as much until mom get back to her normal self again.. We will try to fly by daily and leave you a vote ok..Blue HUGS .. LUCY BLUE
