I was in Hawaii for a month with a friend's family. I stopped in a pet store to look and saw him in a cage that was way too small for him. He was four years old at the time, and they said he had been abused. He was kicked out of his home for being too noisy. I held him and knew I had to take him home immediately! So, I flew him home with me to California, and we have been together through everything ever since. :).

Yep, those feathers bled...A LOT! Mom was frantic because it was the night after Thanksgiving. Mom gave me handfeedings with electrolytes that night, and for the next couple days. She was worried I would not make it, but the vet said I would be OK and gave me an antibiotic. I am super duper now. V4U~~Hollie

She's very disappointed that she got sick and has been in bed trying to feel better. She's afraid to hold me cause she doesn't want me to catch it. I can't catch anything, I don't know what she's talking about but she is making funny noises(sneezing & coughing), I just look at her funny, he,he,he! She is sooo sorry she didn't get to wish everyone a Merry Christmas & so here is to a GREAT HAPPY NEW YEARS!!! Love ya, XXXXXOOOOO & warm Smouchy's

Vote4U, Well when I 1st came home I wouldn't let mom take me out of my cage, I likes biting. But Mom got the courage & her hand looked like she was working in a rose factory but now, No Prob!! I am excepting her kisses now but no touching yet, no petting, cuddling or scratching but maybe someday. Mom keeps sneeking in pats, so???? I do love her more each day & my favorite place now is on her shoulder or dads(but he's still too nervious, his ears are too tempting) Mom works with me ALL the time & I'm talking about 8-10 words & alot of "Birdie" talk, mom likes that just as much. Mom got me a shower perch Sat & we took one today. Mom was worried about it falling off the wall with me on it. We were both nervious but Hey it was OK. I spreaded my wings and got soft droplets of water from the over spray. Then Mommy dried me off and I preened all my feathers. (Photos to come, he,he) Your color is just amazing, everytime I see it. I'm not letting mom look!!See ya tomorrow!! XXXXOOOO

Vote4U, Hi Pretty Boy!!!! Wow, you should be a bird od the week! I have never seen such beautiful colors. Your Mommy I love your colors & your Pix, they are cute, like you!! I see why your Mommy fell in love with you instantly. You were ment to be with your true Mommy all along, too bad you had to go thru the bad stuff to get to her. She had to come all the way from CA to find you! I am jealous of your pretty Pink color, I thought my Yellow was the best but?? I don't want Mommy to see you, she might trade me in(he,he,he) NO WAY, She's in Love!! Head over heels, me too! My Mom & dad go to Starbucks everyday, I'm going to see if they will take me on Sat/Sun but I'm not a touchy birdie yet, so I'm not too sure, I've only be out of the house 2x to the vet. Us IRN's take some extra time to get touchy feely. I stopped biting Mom(he,he) but no touchy yet & she wants to love me soooo bad but she's patient. Enough about me. Hey, I'm working to get my friend (Sunny sis of Popeye,Calico & Alex) extra votes and visits, so she feels extra special. Please drop her a Vote & a short Note. Thanks!!! I'll visit later & catch up! XXXOOO
Please go visit her, Sunny, (Popeye, Calico & Alex)You can send from my page if needed.

  HELLO AGAIN FROM LITTLE LUCY!
I was juat wondering what the beautiful Pink Bird has been up to lately? We sure are glad that Mommy's home today. Daisy and I are playing on her desk dictating our blogs while she types. She's a great secretary as well as a Mommy! Tomorrow she said there's bird show somewhere around here. She's all excited because she's never been to a bird show before. She said that she might find some new toys there. I hope they won't be scary like that last one. She got us some of that thick woven colored paper that comes in a long roll the other day. She just cuts a piece off in whatever length she wants and gives it to us and boy, do we ever like that! It's not scary at all. She hung a piece in each of our cages, excuse me, condos, yesterday before she left, and when she got home we both had our strips all chewed up! We did really good work, don't you think? I hope she does that again. Right now Daisy and I are having a tug of war over a plastic paper clip, (we like those), I won, of course. I'm stronger. But Daisy just went and got another one. We sure do like it here on Mommy's desk, there's so much stuff to get into. She put a mirror on the desk, too, so that whenever I feel like seeing that other bird that looks just like me, I can. XOXOXOXO, Little Lucy

  Hi Armanni
Yep, only one tail feather left. I had a little tantrum. Mom is trying to figure out why I show everyone how tough I am by pulling out my own feathers. I was out on the playground playing when I did it. I have lots of downy feathers on my wings and a few on my back, but not many. They have all come in nicely around my tail. Mom doesn't want to leave me in my cage so I don't pull them out...we sill se what happens the next time they grow in. I have done this twice since I have been here. I have some long wing feathers now, but I can't fly yet. Mom said I will be able to fly again if I let the rest grow. Hope you had a great weekend and a happy week to come. Mom will be very busy until next Monday~~Hollie

We were so sad to hear about Dusty. From what we understand, he passed on without warning. How horrible that would be to lose your hearts desire so quickly without warning. Our hearts break for his family. Mom knows Uzi may not live forever, as the vets think he is older than we know. I hope we all live forever!!!! I get a handfeeding every day from mom still, because I still don't really eat enough on my own. My beak is not as black as it once was, but my back is still bare~~Hollie

  Hello there
Yep, 25 years old and set in their ways is right. A bird such as that would be best in a home with no children. Maybe they should spend a little time with him and see how he handles. If it were a biter and didn't want to be handled, would that be OK with them? I have seen birds that do not handle well, but still enjoy interaction with their owners. Many birds that do not want handled still enjoy company, and an occasional scritch or treat. I, myself, am comfortable with such a bird, but it is entirely up to the individual. I bet she loved that Hyacinth. They are the most docile of all Macaws. It is a shame that they are so expensive. I sure wish I had the money, as Phil keeps trying to sell me his at a reduced price, which is still too costly for me, lol~~Hollie and flock

  Hi Armanni
Mom has had Uzi since her teens, and now she is in her 40's, lol...many years of trial and error. The Regular Jiffy was Aunt Amy's idea, and saves us a ton of money. We always have Milled Flax and wheat germ mixed into it as well. We exchange birdie bread with friends here for more variety, lol. Mom had LOTS of birdies in the 80's, as she actively did rescue back then. Mom would love to work in a birdie store, but could not afford to feed us if she took such a pay cut, lol~~Hollie
