I bought Sammy as a baby. She was not fully weaned yet, but I was able to bring her home because I decided to do weaning training. When I first went to the store I was able to hold a Baby Quaker, we were in the bird room of the store, and suddenly customers started to appear to watch the baby quaker, she got nervous and clutched to my chest and then she well...pooped. When I went back a few hours later to buy a quaker, they had them back in the cage together. The owner pulled a quaker out with out me choosing which one, and that Quaker became Samantha. I have a feeling though that she is the same one, because whenever she is frightened she clutches to me the same way, except for the poop part. : ).

Hi! My name is Samantha

I am a Quaker from Flagler, FL.

Sammy, Banana (Nan), Sam, Quakie, Little Green Baby(Birdy). Sam refuses to say "Sam" or "Sammy", she will only use "Samantha" and she says it very clearly too.Quakie bird. Greenie. Mommy's special nick name for me is "Nan" I dont know why, I know it comes from Sammy Bananie, but I dont like Banana's. Only Mommy calls me that, I guess it just stuck from when I liked bananas as a baby. Oh yeah, Mommy just found out that I am a BOY!

8 years old   M

Quaker

Peas, millet, grapes, bananas, oranges, noodles, apple, crackers, corn, and peppers, oh those yellow peppers! I love fruit and veggies!!! I love the little chili pepper shaped Zupreem pellets. Yum, they are like a treat, I could eat them all day! Zupreem's birdie cookies are also Yum!I am falling in love with broccoli, I love to pick off each little tiny piece. I know why Zoey loves it now! But I would do anything for an orange! I love citrus fruit! Yum! I also love to drink squeezed orange juice out of my glass.Yummy! One of my favorite special treats is a tiny bit of peanut butter. But I have to do something very, very good to get it. And I enjoy safflower seeds way more than sunflowers. Mommy gives me one or two when I am a very good girl. (shhh.. thats why I'm so good!!!) Oh, yeah... I know its strange, everyone tells me I am weird, Birds and people, but... I LOVE my medication. I have to take it twice daily, and its almost like a treat to me... I know birdies, but it makes it easy on my Vet, and my Mommy. So I guess its a good thing. I know I'm a strange little green quaker bird.

On mom, on the couch, mom's bed, bird tree, parrot tower. My HUGE cage, I love it! Because I can't preen myself, only on my vet preen patrols, I sit on my Mom's chest with my little green head under her chin and Mommy helps me with my pins! I love having my Quakie cheeks rubbed! My Bobby, (my mommy's dad) My Grandmommy. I love to be around people. I also like to hang around my brothers Zoey and Freddy, but Mommy says they are Budgies and I have to keep my distance. But I love to watch them play and peep. Fred and I talk all the time. He loves me, if we could sit together I bet he would preen me all day! But Mommy won't let me get to close, she says my beak is to big. I also love my Avain Vet! I get along great with everyone there!

The Vacuum, I hate it. Mom always brings it out, and I yell "uh, oh!" I know it cleans up my mess, but boy I hate it. Sometimes I'll even yell "Help Me!". I dont likle when Mommy takes away my weaving supplies 'cause I was a naughty birdy! I don't like balloons. I don't care for my collar, but my Mommy, and vet says I have to wear it until I stop hurting myself. My doctor says I am a good sport about it though. I am not just a regular plucker, I have heart disease. My doctor told my Mommy that I have an enlarged heart, and it has a lump on it. I spent many days in the hosptial. My Mommy was so worried about me! She always came to visit me, but I dont like being away from my Mommy. I was mostly bare, and I worried what she would think of me, but she loves me no matter what! They say my heart is why I pluck. I cant have the collar off until I stop hurting myself so badly. It makes my Mommy so sad.

She loves me... oh yeah, and she gives me food, baths, and makes me toys. Oh and she gives me oranges... did I mention I love oranges? Mommy loves to snuggle with me and give me head rubs and kisses. And she loves me no matter how many feathers I have, or what I look like.

I love to run around on the floor, find people and bite their toes. I love to ride in the laundry basket. I like to attack water bottles, and I prefer to drink from my own little glass. (Of course anything from Mommy's glass is better, but she won't let me have it unless its clean and freshly poured) I love to look out my window for "little birds" and "big birds". When I see people and animals I don't know I call them "little birds." Mom's neighbors are "little birds" I love to laugh! When I start weaving, as us quakers love to do, I yell "Bye, Bye! I'll be right back!" and off I go to weave. Im very talented! On walks with Mommy I growl like a dog at people I dont know when they pass by me. Of course at home I am polite! As mentioned before, even though I wear a collar, I still enjoy my life its fullest. Mommy and I do everything together! I recently learned how to play dead, and Mommy says with the added effect of my collar, it looks even scarier! I still climb all around, run all around, and enjoy life to its fullest. Of course both Mommy and I wish that I didnt have to wear the collar, but my habit is to severe the doctor says. Even with my collar, I love life just like I did with out it, which makes everyone happy, that I am happy..

"Quakie, Quakie".

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at www.1luckybird.com

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.
