SLY here. Hey, chewing boxes is fun. I do it all the time. I'm no hen either. hahaha
I got bad news about Mina. She got so aggressive with mom she had to give her up. She bit mom's ear real bad then her neck. Mom's going to have a scar there I can tell you.
You may think those eggs were small, but Mina isn't that much larger than a tiel....maybe a sun conure size with a long tail. And although that was next to a quarter it should have been closer to a half dollar. OUCH! I can't imagine anything that size coming out of me! It's a guy thing.
Anyway, You can still fly by and see me. Oh and mom put her name in for a bare eyed, goffins or other smaller too. Pretty cool. Now you have to keep in touch. hahaha v4u

That is neat you got to a soccer game with your mom too. Well mom finally got to see a softball game of the gr. daughters and thought it was pretty good one too. They didn’t win but they did do well and the score was close too. They had lots of fun. This is the last week for that gr. daughter’s school and the other ones were done a week ago. Since the starting times and vacation days differ so does the ending time as well. “Right from the start, I knew you were a friend in my heart, so lets never part!” Stop in anytime and sit on the perch and brawk with me.

That is neat how you got to go to the concert with your mom and sounds like a fun thing indeed!!Today was rainy and down right cold with temps only in the 50’s. Mom had ideas of washing the winter bed blankets and comforters all up but that sure didn’t happen. I think mom is going to need that comfort the next few nights and you know I might just crawl in there with her hihihi. “Right from the start, I knew you were a friend in my heart, so lets never part!” Stop in anytime and sit on the perch and cheech with me.

Mina here. Yeah, I think I would have been jealous of him if he would have been here long enough. Dad and mom are starting to joke about things bird related now and I'm starting to look for a nesting spot. Oh, I know, I haven't even been off the eggs for a month, but I just have this urge to lay more. Mom's looking for a male for me, but just can't find one! Really! Oh well, at least I know she's looking. I'm biting her all the time again too. I bit her neck and yesterday her ear. She was cleaning my cage and I flew from the stand I was on and just bit her ear! She was NOT happy. Neither was I because she locked me up. Can you beat that.
It's been way to hot for us to go out much. By the time it cools down it's time for bed. But we have been out and about a bit. Hope you've been having fun on walks. Gotta fly. Fly on over for another squawk.v4u

  Hi Lois! V4U!!!
I am doing great!! Still moulting but getting more used to the itchy itch feeling. Mom said I have to get a pedicure tomorrow ... that should be interesting. The last time I got my wings clipped the vet stepped outside the room, left the door open, and I flew right after him and landed in a doggie enclosure. So much for clipping my wings. (She said she's not going to have that done anymore since I'm so good and don't get too crazy with the flying thing.) The dogs looked at me and I looked at them. Mom was going nuts though ... and scooped me up fast. I'll give you a after action report on what transpires at the vets tomorrow. Could be anything. No, mom didn't get Marshmellow and is still pining for her ... also, she sneaks off to visit her frequently!!! I'm embarrassed to say that I was not too "friendly" when she took me to meet her for a play date. We got into a major hissy fit and scared mom to death. So, needless to say, mom thought it was best for all concerned to not bring Marshmellow home ... we'll see what happens. Mom has a way of getting what she wants ... so, anything is possible. I'll try to be good if that happens. I'll keep you posted. Have a great weekend! Love, your friend, Sam

I lose most of my paper going back to the cage and mom says it looks like it rained paper in the house as she picks it all up again hihihi. Gus just throws his paper down too and never puts it in his feathers like I do. Guess its a lovie thing that we do. We didn’t get to be outside today. Mom was busy and had lots of places she had to go. I didn’t care though since I had lots of paper in my house to chew up she left me before she went. We had a storm this evening again and the gr daughters softball game got cancelled that mom was going to go to. “Friends are flowers that never fade” Come visit me anytime…the door is always open for a great friend like you!!

  Hi Lois!! V4U!!!
Thanks for stopping by! The weather report for here in the Chicago metro area (hehehe) is grim. Still very cool ... low 50s ... but sunny today. Yippeee!!! I am molting so mom is very careful about drafts and keeping me warm with a humidifier, etc. I get to go on roadtrips a couple of times a year to Florida ... and really come alive there hooting and sqwacking in the tropical climate. I love looking at the palm trees. I love all your pictures! Very nice!!! Mom is thinking about getting a birdie companion for me ... she loves cockatoos and has been looking at several of them at a breeder. One young one really took to her and she is wondering how we would get along. She calls him Marshmello and he loves to have his neck scratched. He snuggles under mom's hair and it's all over for a couple of hours!!! Have a great day! Your friend, Sam

Yes the new costume is pretty scary and think pretty soon we can put other pictures up as soon as everyone votes who they were going to vote for. When mom gave me my food today I gave her a kiss. She laughed at that. Dad was spending time in that bathroom this morning then when he came out mom was in there a while too. I heard mom say something to dad about painting so might be what they are doing…hmmmm. “Friends are the umbrellas in the storms of life”. Leaving a vote as I say stop in and visit me anytime…I will be waiting for you. Leaving you green kisses and hugs..Gus

No I dont like the asparagus either but Gus sure does. After mom cleaned my house out today she gave me another new big bag again. It got sideways in my cage and I couldn’t get out so started chewing through it to get out. Mom came to my rescue and turned it around again hihihi. “Friends are the umbrellas in the storms of life”.

Mina here. Oh I've got two eggs now. After mom took my first one I decided if I laid another I'd protect it. Then, I looked at the one egg and remembered I had laid 2 and that one looked lonely so I laid another. 3 all total. Mom is letting me keep them. Let me tell you that it is so boring just sitting there and not running around!! Mom gives me good treats and special foods even though she has to bring them upstairs.
Just wanted to bring you up on things. V4u

I thought maybe the pinata was made like that on a baloon but didnt know what you would use to hold it together since the flour and water wouldnt taste too good hihihi. Glad the water helped you though to get rid of the taste!! Mom put my shower perch on the door window and I sat there and looked out for a long time today. I had my eagle eye on a big tiger cat across the road at the farm. I never saw one before so sure was checking it out. I was glad it stayed in his own yard too hihihi. “Miles apart, but close in heart”. Come visit me anytime you can….your always welcome here. V4U- Love ya!!! Gus

Mina here. Just a quick fly by because I laid my second egg. And I'm protecting it from mom. No mom didn't cook up my last egg because I kept it so long. I LOVE scrambled eggs too. I like them almost better than hard boiled. And mom makes sure there's egg shell in them too. Have your mom try it with millet. YUMMY.
Mom gave me lots of special attention this morning. But I'm staying with the egg.
Gotta fly. come back soon. v4u

  Hi Lois! Vote 4 U!!
Thanks for the fly by!!! Good to hear you are doing well! Yes, I am shredding my toys to bits! Mom got scared when she saw some pink poop and thought I was bleeding or something from eating wood ... she rushed me to the vet hysterical with a sample and he laughed and said it was my new food ... some red berry something or another ... boy was she shaking with fright. I felt bad for her. Anyway, I have a new swing that I love to swing on "in private only". It makes mom mad because she thinks I look so cute on it. She will cover me up and I hop on it ... she peeks at me ... and I shriek NO at her and jump off. My gram said I am a pistol. I guess I am ... anyway, hoping your weather is good. Ours is improving slowly. Are you going to Maxie's party? Hope so - anyway, have a good night. Your friend, Sam

Glad you came to visit again....we missed you!! How does your mom make a pinata? What does she use for the base of the product? Guess a baloon would work eh? What kind of paste does she use or does she make it out of flour and water? Let us know cause that sounds like a good idea for mom to do for us. What does your mom put inside of it for you? I like to sit on my cage either on top or on the porch with my back to everyone and talk to the wall. Mom says I am a silly guy for doing that hihihi. I show mom my toes and she tickles them and says tickle, tickle, tickle when she does it. Ahh the funny games we play!!“Some fids (friends) come into our lives and quietly stay.

To play helicopter you get your toes around the grate real good and then flap your wings as fast as they will go and makes it sound like a helicopter but you never leave your port hihihi. Makes alot of noise and things fly everywhere so guess its good exercise too. Mom has been giving me paper bags to chew up. When I get in them and make a lot of noise even ole Gus looks over hihihi. Mom says she doesn’t need a paper shredder cause I do a really good job so guess I might even get paid for all this paper chewing I am doing too wooo hooo!! “Some fids (friends) come into our lives and quietly stay.

Mom said she couldn't understand why I was acting like that because they have a tiel!! Then she thought maybe it was because of the bouquet of flowers they brought to dad. He hasn't been feeling well. So mom thinks it may have been that. That and they were acting nervous too. So it rubbed off on me.
Oh I know what you mean about dogs just staring at you. Mom was dog sitting an old dog and boy did she smell bad. Her breath just about made our feathers drop!! But she'd get by mom and stare at her and me if I was on her lap. I almost got her once tho. Made mom smile. And she gave me lots of pets. Since I bit her lip she's not giving me kisses and snuggles.
Oh, since I laid the egg and mom gave me the mirror I've really calmed down. I don't run to attack everyone (mom)and I'm not so snappy either. Mom hopes I'm coming back to my sweet self. I didn't do anything near this last year! Never was biting mom all the time or anything. Of course this year I did lay that egg. Mom still wonders if because of my hard first two years if this was my first real season. She hopes it won't be this bad every year!! HAHA
Gotta fly v4u.

Thanks for the tip regarding the box the toys come in. I told mom to leave the box too ... she did ... and wow did I have fun tearing that up and keeping myself busy (and oh so quiet)!!! Care Bear put a new swing in my cage and last night after nite nite time mom caught me in there quietly swinging back and forth ... it was really late, dark and waaaay past my bed time. I screamed and they jumped when they lifted up the cover to check on me. Then I laughed! I got 'em ... hehehehe ... Care Bear told mom ... oh, leave him alone ... he is having fun. Have a great day!

Good for you. That guy had no business sticking his fingers within beak range!! Especially in your cage. And you had every right to chase him out of your house!! Yeah, your mom probably said you were in the wrong, but nope, you were protecting your territory!! Kiwi does that more than I do. If it's a woman I'll bite and chase, but if it's a guy, I'll sweet talk him!!
There was a guy who came in to look at the house to see if he wanted to buy it. (yep, landlords are tying to sell my house) I didn't mind him being here, but the Realtor was a woman and she was scared of us birds in the first place. HAHAHA Kiwi and I made her life miserable. Mom picked us up and so we weren't so scary and I reached over and got moms ring finger real good. Then I turned and got her ear. She left me in our room and took Kiwi and Sly with her. She said it wouldn't have been so bad if I would have tried to get the lady, but I bit mom twice in 10 secs. She may have a point there. What do you think?
Mom wasn't to sad. The friend was well into his 80's and hadn't been well for a long time. She worries more for the widow. She's getting right up there too.
Well, here's a v4u and fly by when you can. Aramina
