  Hi Pig
Nolly here. Got over your candy high yet? hehe Scraps and me have been driving mom crazy. We fly downstairs and first thing I do is land on moms head. Then I get put on her shoulder and Scraps flies over and gets on her other shoulder and we start preening her hair (we like it best when she has it down) and when she moves we bite her. Not hard, just enough to bug her. She puts us back up on our stand and we just start over again...from on top of her head. hahaha WE LOVE DOING IT!! You ought to try it on your mom or grandma. hmmmm, maybe stick to your mom on this one.
got to fly. v4u

Menolly here. So your mom broke her camera too. haha Our mom's camera broke and she's using dad's for a while. She's not taking many pictures with it yet. WHEW.
So you wanted to turn the sun out huh? How funny. Yeah, our parronts just forget to get it dark enough for us sometimes. We always let mom know when it's bed time. We luck out tho because we have our own room. hehe
Sure glad to hear back and everything's going well. Boy the weather sure went crazy. Last week we were in the 70s and this week we're going to be doing good to hit 50!! And wind!! COLD WIND! gusts to 40 or better. BRRRRRRRRR We want the warm back!! We even had a couple of snow flurries. Nothing stuck, but shows how cold it is. Sure feel sorry for our cousins outside. Mom is putting good food out there for them tho.
Gotta fly for now. Fly by again soon. v4u

Dandy here. Wow been a while since we had a visit. How's it going? How does your mom like school? Tell her and your grandmom we all here in Reno say HI! And She needs to get a bird of her own and get on here with us all. hehehe Love it! How come you don't have a picture with her? Is she like our mom? Just hates to have her pic taken? hehehe Now mom can't get pics of us because her camera broke. But I did notice she's laid claim to dads now. So maybe she WILL be taking more.
Take care and drop by when you can. Still love your pictures. You look a lot like Scrappy. He's got a gray crest too. v4u

Valla here. Oh I bet that was so funny. I hate the vacuum! So do the rest of us. We all go in our cages and try to hide. That would be great to see tho.
Did you meet our new fisters? Mom brought them home the other day. Dulsay and me flew down to meet them they are so fun too. They fly all over with us. Menolly even lands on moms head.

  Hi Pigideon
Levalla here. Thanks for flying by. Yes, I'm doing so much better. I still bite mom but not near as hard as I did. And I scatter my food....mom says that's normal. And I love my new toy she bought me. I play with it a lot. She hasn't caught me at it with the camera yet. hehehe
Mom says that she was looking for you yesterday to let Dandy write you, but couldn't find you. She was so sad. But we're all really glad you're back!!! Have you had a good summer? Once it got hot here it got awful! Mom brings us down every day to keep us cooler.
Looking at your new pics...you look like a girl. Dandy has much oranger cheeks than you do.
Does your mom take you to pet stores too? Well, I don't get to go but they boys do. Sly says it's real fun. And so does Kiwi. Dandy is still in a carrier, but he likes to go.
Did you hear that mom had to give up Mina? I didn't meet her. I moved in right after she left. Mina was adopted by a man, but within a week she was back at the foster home. She bonded with the daughter. hehehe They all were glad to see her again.
The bird club asked if mom would be able to part with some orange weavers. Well, she did. They went to an old folks home. Their last bird had died of old age and wanted more. So there was weavers, zebra finches and tiels and budgies donated. The have a huge aviary Now the old folks are real happy with all the colors and sounds. Nope, no way would she give up Punkin!!! and two more too. Punkin lost Handsome, he flew in the main cage and hadn't started to change colors so she didn't know for sure if she even got a male until he started to sing. The other female, Sassy, likes him. Now mom has to wait for him to color out and find a name for him.
WHEW I think I covered most of the new stuff....for now. v4u Fly by again soon okay.

  Hi Pig!
Dandy here. Yeah, mom's pretty bummed about having to give up Mina. Me? Nope. She was always trying to chase me and fight with me. Mom was always locking one of us up when Mina was down here.
Mom is doing okay, but it's a scar. Yep, something to remember Mina by.
Oh, mom was told that for 2 days Mina was squawking as loud as she could that she was birdnapped and she was going to sue!! She's okay now tho. And since there are Toos and amazons all around there she had lots of help I'm sure.
Mom says we'll check out the movies tomorrow. Gotta fly. there's a thunderstorm starting up. v4u
Oh, have you gone over and met Levalla? She's our newest fib.

Dandy here. Mina wanted me to tell all her friends that she went to a new home. She was getting more and more aggressive to mom and attacking her all the time. Mom will have a scar on her neck from Mina. Mom has been sad all day because they picked her up today. The don't know if they'll keep her as a pet or let her be a breeder. I'll keep you informed if you want to fly by. v4u

Dandy here. HA! Boy do I know how you feel. I did the same thing first time mom came dancing and singing at me. I thought she'd really lost it. But I looked around and Kiwi and Sly were dancing. Still freaked me tho. I finally got used to it and now I sometimes join in. Although not near like Sly and Kiwi. But mom says it'll come. I just have to relax and feel the music. RIGHT. Mom says that's a good song to dance to too. Hang in there. v4u

  Hi Pigwideon
Mina here. Hey dancing is so fun. Mom keeps saying she's going to get a pic of Sly dancing to low rider. Or Puttin on the Ritz. Those are his favs. Kiwi likes to dance and sing to Who are you. Mostly he likes to sing who who. hehe I'm not a real big dancer, but every now and then I get going. Dandy is learning by watching mom dance with Sly. Hey if you are on your mom's hand she can get you to bobbing. After that it's real easy. Go for it.
Hey, tell your mom that her mom loves her very much to put controls on her computer. If your grandma wants to email mom about the teaching disc that's great too. Don't want to cause probs. Mom was just thinking instead of spending a lot of money she could help out.
You and your mom take care and have fun dancing. v4u

Kiwi here. Don't go scaring your mom like that!! Us either. But we sure are glad you're okay. Did you discover what it was that you ate? Yeah, I know, it's hard to tell. I'm always eating whatever I can. As is Mina. Sly is a bit pickier and Dandy is really picky.
Hey have you been getting all that real bad weather? Hope not that's been bad stuff. We've had lots of wind and a little bit of rain. Sure has made the grass green and the flowers starting to grow too. Can't wait until it warms up so we can go outside. Gotta fly. Hope you fly by again soon. v4u

  Hi
is the runny poo finished? a few bites of yogurt is always good for the tummy. we know that it is hard to find a good vet. you have to make sure they have bird experience. it is ALWAYS good to have a vet. Even if you don't get to them right away. if you cannot afford to take the bird in many times you can just take a poo sample in for them to examine. Before you do ask how much it costs!! very important with limited funds.
Anyway, if Pigwideon is feeling better you are probably doing okay. Just keep an eye on the poo and the eyes. If the eyes are droopy you need to get him to vet asap. If he's perky like normal don't worry so. Make sure you keep his diet varied (if possible. i'm still trying to get Dandy and Mina over to pellet food)just make sure he doesn't over eat. They can be pigs with their treats. let us know please. v4u

  Hi Again
I was wondering what kind of help are you looking for? The biting or the not liking people? Does he bite you? For the food thing, with kiwi I just pretend that whatever I'm trying to give her, that I am eating it, it's the best thing in the world and that she can't have it. She always wants what she can't have. lol. If she bites my hands while I'm holding her, I quickly drop my hand an inch or two, just enough to through her a little off balance, and say no. It only takes a couple of time before she figured it out. Not liking other people, I find that if their wings are clipped, it's a lot easier to get them to step up onto new people. Start off with a couple of seconds at first on a new person and work up from that.
Here's another vote for you.

Come visit me, Kiwi & Rika.
