we were at birthday party for a friend of a friend. while touring the self-sustaining garden, we heard rubio's squawk (there's not other word for it). when we asked, our guide told us that she didn't know what kind of bird it was, only that it was in need of a new home. when we saw him, and he looked just like our other pied, we knew it was meant to be!.

Hi! My name is rubio

I am a Pied Mutation Cockatiel from s. burlington, VT.

scooter, doo-scooter, doo-skeek, rubio monroe, rubio the great

13 years old   M

Pied Mutation Cockatiel

i love many kinds of treats! i really love my eggs, though, scrambled or hard boiled! i rarely get them, though; i just love to eat!

i like to hang out on the floor, right under daddy's feet! in fact, it got me a broken leg once! i also do my best to get under the couch, where i get wuite ferocious!

i want you to think i have lots of pet peeves, but i'm really all tweet! just don't bother me when i'm sleeping!

they rescued me! i was not taken out of my cage often enough, and wasn't fed the right diet. i had pretty embarassing social habbits, too. but mommy & daddy took me, and loved me, and fed me well. they bathe me just about every day ~ which i had to learn to love ~ and helped me to break my bad habbits. they gave me a flock to be a part of, and tought me how to be a bird again! i love them for it, and show it as much as i can!

i say my name when i get really really excited, like when daddy gets home! and i love to stand on the air filter & let the fan blow my feathers! that's where i got the nickname "rubio monroe!" i also love feet! i'll sing & whistle at feet, with or without socks! i got the nickname "scooter" because of the way i scoot around the birdroom floor, exploring and climbing away. i'm quite the climber! this is something new that i'm showing to mommy & daddy, as i'm allowed to walk around on the floor, but only in the birdroom. i also have a really charming way of whistling a tune!.

it feels good to be alive!.

  Hello Rubio
Thanks for the information on the collar. We know that Susan's problems are not due to her diet. She gets fresh vegetables and fruits every morning. She is also eating 100% natural foods by Goldenfeast and is eating Bird Paradise specials blend for the eclelctus parrot. Thank you for all of the information. We are thinking that Susan is a habitual plucker (it sounds like you are, too); and we may need to take her to the vet and get a collar like yours. Susan had gorgeous feathers during the summer months and then started plucking as soon as the winter months and dry heat started to come on in the house. She is also molting. We are thinking (hoping) that she plucks during the dry heat season and because of her molts; and will stop during the summer months and get gorgeous feathers again. I suppose time will tell. (We adopted Susan from a foster home in June; and her feathers were just starting to come back in at that time.). Meanwhile, Mom has tried all sort of things. She even eliminated all colored toys from Susan's cage (thinking she may have an allergy to the dyes in the toys.) Some birds are allergic to the dyes used in the wood toys. Susan also gets daily baths in the shower and with "Avian RX Solution". The baths seems to help some, but they have certainly not eliminated the problem. It sure is frusterating trying to figure out what works!!! We hope that you stop plucking at your feathers, soon, too. You are a beautiful bird! Thanks for stopping in to visit.
