I first met Percy at my friend's house. I had always been a cat, dog and horse person and had never met an exotic bird before. When I saw how my friend and her bird interacted with each other I became facinated at how loveable and cuddly they were with each other. Everytime I visited I would stick my finger in Percy's cage and he would grab onto it and not let go. My friend commented at how surprised she was that he had taken to me so quickly. One day she called and told me she was moving to Florida and couldn't take Percy with her. She asked me if I wanted him and there was no hesitation to my "yes". Percy has been with me for 7 years. It took about 2 weeks for us to "adjust" to each other. I know it was very hard for my friend to have to give him up but she knows that Percy is secure and happy here. I couldn't be happier to have him.

  Hi Percy
Mum has always had lots of different animals around her too- she still has a cat and a dog that I play with and that I'm the boss of heeheehee. When she was younger she was owned by a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo called Sam and another Rosie called Cocky but sadly they have flown on to the Rainbow Bridge. But now she has me!! Do you like to roll on your back? Goodnight for now, mum's going to have an early night which means I have to also- I wonder if my kissie noises will make her let me stay up longer!! love from Jack (AV4U)

  Hi Percy
I am so glad you stopped by to say hello- us Rosies are really a minority at BC aren't we? My mum say that just makes us all that more special, but it makes her a little sad also cos she says that many people are missing out on such a wonderful, all-round fabulous bird. Here in Australia though, us galahs are notorious pests (to the farmers anyway)- mum says I am HER little pest and she hopes I will keep pestering her forever heeheehee.I like the way you hold your wing, it looks like your giving yourself a hug. Do you like to hang upside and scream sometimes? I do, I also like to purr!! Gotta go to bed now, please stop by again soon. take care....love from Jack (AV4U2)

You are a very beautiful boy- are you still with us at BC. I hope so cos I'm a Rose-Breasted too and there doesn't appear to be many of us here. My name is Jack and I live in Australia. Come past and visit me. In the meantime, here's a vote 4u...love Jack

Hey Percy! Howz it goin? We haven't been on bird channel very much lately because my mom has been working very hard, but we wanted to fly by and say "hello". There are three new birds in our bird family! My in laws adopted a double-yellow headed amazon, a senegal, and a lilac-crowned amazon. My mom was playing with the lilac-crowned, and they had a blast! He got sooo worked up and was laughing and repeating everything my mom said! He finally got so excited that he flew down off the playstand, and had to go in. We think he definately learned the word "fun"!

  Hi percy!
The paper has a website but i dont think the article will be there :( the paper is called the fairfield champion, and is for sydney nsw fairfield suburb. Mum's such a shy person when it comes to asking for things, but she might just have to build the courage up to ask! I love it that your mom cares for the cats, its important to be kind to all sorts of animals. My mum also helps the strays by taking them in off the streets and sending them to a cat proteection place for rehoming. Its so sad because there are just so many homeless cats around! Its real bad too for the wide life as because they are so starving they kill all the birds, lizards and small mammals :( Well your mum deserves a big medal for her work and we hope she gets one oneday! lots of love and a vote xx

That's cool that your pink is getting a little darker on your belly like me! I think it is such a brilliant color! Aren't we incredible that we just keep getiing more beautiful as we get older? I think that our people just don't notice the difference right off because they are around us all the time, but when our color really becomes more brilliant over the years, they can tell. Isn't that really fascinating?

  Hey Percy
When I talk about the "dappling", I don't mean stress bars, but actually the coloring on my chest. If you look at my pictures, you can see it. I think you have it too a little if you look at the second picture where you have your wings crossed. My theory is that it is a natural coloring that becomes more pronounced as you get older. You have a good point though. I do go outside with my mom and one of my perches is by the sliding glass door. So, I do get alot of indirect sunlight when it is open. ('cause UV doesn't come through the glass) Anyway, it could also be that I do live in California. The sun is different here than the east coast. Maybe that's it! Percy you're so smart! What else would I expect from a rosie!

I hope that big mean noisy thing goes away soon. I hate when the neighbors make noises! I only changed color a few years ago, so you may still. I haven't seen any other rosies change other than me, but I don't know any other older rosies either. I'm curious to find out. It looks like you have the dappling on your chest, but you're still the lighter pastel pink. I wonder if you'll go hot pink like me. Oh well, I guess only time will tell! :)

I thought I'd just fly by and see how you are doing! Is anything new? My mom and I are working on the "retrieve" right now. Instead of bringing it to her, I'm throwing it to her, so "catch" it is, I guess! I got soo excited that I started hopping across the floor! Hopefully counting is next. I have an abacus, but I haven't used it yet. It's amazing what I'll do for seeds! Are you turning hot pink or getting dappling on your chest? I used to be that light pastel pink until just a few years ago, when I became brighter pink and dappled. My mom thinks it has to do with maturity. I am 12 afterall. Since you're 8, I was just wondering if your color was changing yet or not. My mom read that birds become more brilliantly colored as they get older, so she's curious if that is true, or if it's just me. Maybe it's something I'm eating! Afterall, I do consume alot of carrots! Well, that's it for now.

  Hello!
Sorry we have not been around in so long mum has been so busy with uni work and just fionished the semester last week, since then she has been sick with the flu and neck strain. Aroo is going well, he's going to the vet to get his wing x-rayed and then if everything is ok he will go to the flight avairy for flight practice and then will be released!! Its great your mum catches the ferals and strays that have been abandoned and finds them homes, its so very very important that homeless cats are taken off the street. They have a incredibly severe impact on our native fauna are also living a tough unforgiving life by themselves on the streets. People just think they can feed strays and thats ok, but the amount of native animals they kill is so severe that it really does affect the numbers of native animals in the wild, especially endangered creatures like frogs, lizards, small mammals and birds. Cats are wonderful creatures but belong in loving homes, and not alone in the wild, like all animals! Mum does the same with the ferals in her area. They get caught and then sent to go to the cat protection society to be rehomed and rehabilitated. Being a wild life career mum is so depressed over the feral cat situation. Over 60% of the resuces, injuries and deaths of natives are caused by cat attack. Even if the cat only gives a small scratch, the animal will still die within less than 2 days if it is not administered antibiotics as soon after the attack as possible. This is because all cats carry lareg amounts of toxic bacteria in their saliva which causes the attacked animals system to shut down. Its so sad when we cant get to them soon enough to stop the death process. We hope all is well, here is a vote and keep up the good work helping out the wild native animals xo

Looks like we both had good before and after homes. My old family is happy to know I'm with a good mom now too. My mom really has a crush on you. She wants a rose breasted cockatoo for her next bird. Not sure daddy would let her get bird #2 ever! But she hopes and wishes. Can your mom tell my mom more bout you guys? She's worked with moluccans,umbrellas,bare eyes and goffins. What are you guys like?

  Hi percy
I'd be deligted to call him aroo in memory of your moms poor lost baby. Why was he/she ill ? its so sad when young ones are born sick or become ill no matter how much precoutions and effort to give them health is given. The galah (new aroo) is going very well. We'll get some picks for you when I have the time, final weeks of the uni semester and its all so hectic. xoxo

  Hi Percy!!!
It is sad, most farmers are creeps! they dont care about animals at all, especially birds. Im a volunteer wild life career and rescuer and the other day late at night i got called out to do a rescue and pick up a gallah who had been hit by a golf ball. I picked the bird up and found out he was a boy and had a bad compound fracture to his wing. I rushed to a friends who is also a career to get him a cage to keep him in over night and put him on heat and with a blanket in his cage and some food and water. I thought he might have to euthenaised as his injuries were quite bad. If a wild animal cannot be rereleased into the wild we have to euthenaise them by law, it is unfortunate and sad but ethically it is the right thing to do, as it is cruel to keep wild caught animals couped up in human confinement. The next day I dropped him of to the vet for observation and check up. The day after I called in and found out that the galah had not been euthenaised and his wing was strapped so I was able to take him home. He's a very cute calm bird even though hes wild. Im so happy he did not have to be euthenaised and cant wait till he is healed up! When his wing heals he will be released back into the wild. He's currently at a friends house who is also a carrer as my avairy had a lorikeet in it who was also in care, he was released today though. Just though you might be interested to know the good news :) Galahs are so cute and beautiful and it made me so happy to know that he could be saved :)
