I rescued her from an abusive and neglectful home. Thru a third party I was asked to keep her and two other birds for just the winter. The previous owner was heating with wood and supposedly was concerned about the effects on the birds. I believe that was an excuse to get rid of them. (At least he tried to find a home for them.) Without a doubt they were hit with a stick and a plastic pop bottle. Cody was kept in a cat carrier not a cage and had lost muscle. She was weak enough that she would fall off my arm. She had plucked herself so that she had no wing, chest and tail feathers. Her wings were "chicken" wings. She was self mutilating by biting her chest and had several leisons. All three birds were diagnosed with Beak and Feather. With the help of our Vet and good diet and care they later tested negative. We annually have our vet visit. The vet comes to our house because we live in a remote area and the clinic is located over an hours drive.
Cody is doing very well and has turned out to be a wonderful, and noisy bird.

I'm a member of the delco bird club,outreach team, and jojo rescue outreach. I get a lot of socialization with other birds and people. My dad wants to adopt another cocatoo. while I was here I did cast my vote for you (one of many I'm sure)

  Hi pretty lady!
Just stopped by to say hi! Moms in a much happier mood today. Our lil rugrat - Maggie is doing much better! Mom talked to vet today & he is encouraged by her progress so maybe everything will be ok.
Well, we don't get much time tonight...just wanted to wish you a goodnight & share the good news!

  Hi Cody
Hope your week is going well.It has finally happened...its too hot to spend much time outside now. Gabby & I get an hour or so first thing in the morning & the same in the evening. We had a heat index of 106 today! It was HOT!! When mom brought us in our little toesies were hot & we were both panting a little bit & we had been outside less than an hour. This really sucks to get stuck back inside but I don't think I can take the heat! Weatherman says its supposed to be like this for awhile, yuk.

Mom says her aunt & uncles names are Judy & Ron Skaggs & it was probably almost 20 years ago when they lived there...mom says time really flys. She says it feels just like yesterday but her cousins went to highschool here in Oklahoma & her cousins are in their early 30's. But who knows? Is Saginaw small?

We've not done alot this week cuz moms been really worried about one of the fur-brats, Maggie. She is the smallest, a little 4lb yorkie & boy is she treated like a princess. I guess it pays to be the littlest in the house. She's started having balance problems, mom said she keeps falling over & losing her balance & swaying when she stands still. Mom thought maybe something was wrong with her back legs (hoped) but when she took her into the vet the vet said it was definately a balance problem. So he kept her for a couple hours & ran a whole bunch of tests (& spent alot of moms money!) When mom picked her up he said either she has neuropathy in her feet or maybe inflammation in the meninges of the brain & around the spinal cord & God forbid if its not either of those she maybe has a brain tumor. He put her on some medicine to decrease inflammation & gave her a shot (same kind of meds) to get her started. If she doesn't start doing better within 3 days then she has to go back & have a CT of her head. Monday after she went to the vet mom was worried cuz she was doing much worse but as of today (Wed evening) mom thinks she is doing much better. She hasn't fallen over once & has been able to walk a straight line without too much difficulty. So we shall see. Moms very worried about her. Hopefully everything will be just fine.
Well gotta go, its way past my bedtime
Kisses, Fergie

  Hi Cody
Hope you are having a good start to your weekend! Not out partying too much last night right??
Mom finally remembered where her aunt & uncle lived...it was Saginaw, MI. & She said she still thinks it would be really neat to have that much snow at one time; however you have to realize that she drives a lil 2 seater convertible that barely clears speed-bumps. I'm thinkin she wouldn't be too thrilled with that much snow all winter long. Here we may have cold weather but we get quite alot of 60-70 degree days thru the winter to kind of space out the cold. Mom says there's nothing better than driving with the top down in the middle of winter on a pretty day. So, I'm thinkin she wouldn't do too well in Michigan!
Mom thinks that Mackinaw Island would be a fun place to visit but maybe not to live...she really does love her car! It would be nice & quiet tho...no car noise at all would be great. Our new house is a couple miles from the highway & you don't really notice the highway noise except for at night when its real quiet outside. Mom says that will get better when we get some trees planted too.
Well, its waaaay past my bedtime, so I'll talk to ya later
Kisses, Fergie

  Hey Cody!
Don't be too envious! It took mom a couple years before she could get the aviary for us. She's been warning us that here soon when it gets too hot we won't beable to spend so much time outside. I keep trying to tell our homeland is hot but she's pretty adamant about it.
My mom says her aunt & uncle used to live in Michigan (can't remember where). MOm still has pics of her cousins when they were little making tunnels in the snow. She said she was always so envious! She loves snow...Gabs & I aren't too sure about it, tho. We don't get alot of it around here. We usually get stuck with ice which mom says is way worse. Mom looked online at an island in Michigan that had outlawed motor vehicles (do you know what she's talking about) She said it was really neat. Lots of people vacation there & they had pics of people in horse & buggy etc. Mom thought it would be fun to ride a horse to work til she thought about when it rained or snowed etc...then she decided she'd stick with her jeep. Well its time for our bed so we will talk to ya later,
Kisses, Fergie
PS...we need more pics of your pretty face!!

  Hi Cody
Just stopping in to leave you a vote & wish you an awesome weekend. Mom works weekends so we don't get alot of quality mom time but she gets home first thing in the morning & now that its warm we get to go outside with her for breakfast & then stay in the outdoor aviary all day. Today was realllly warm tho. Mom said we might not get to stay out all day once it starts staying this warm all the time. She's worried about us gettin overheated...like our ancestors didn't come from somewhere hot...it should be in our genes right?? But mom does worry. Well I'll talk at ya later,
Kisses, Fergie

We are soooo sorry to hear about Popcorn!!! But we are very happy that your mom gave you guys a chance and took really good care of you and now your in a much much better forever home!!! We have a memorial page so if your mom has a picture of Popcorn and if she wants us to put Popcorn on our memorial page so everyone can see him, we'd love to add him!!!! Just let us know...

My mom knows Cheb. but she's never heard of the city where you live. So do you get lots of snow there? Gaylord gets alot! My mom says when she was younger, the snow would reach the roof tops! Thats alot of snow!! I'm so glad that we live in Florida and don't get snow here!!!

Well theres nothing much going on here today so I better get going.

Have a great day and please let us know about Popcorn.

  Hi Cody
I'm so glad you came by! I love meeting new birdys. I'm very glad you found such a good home that doesn't mind if you express yourself. Like I said Gabs & I are pretty good. We get loud once or twice a day but not for very long. We also like to be loud when mom is on the phone...we always think mom should be talking to us. She's finally wised up & talks outside when she's on the phone. Mom thinks Moluccans are probably like us if they get enough attention & also know how to entertain themselves then hopefully there won't be too many problems...just depends on how they were treated in their previous home. Which isn't always good. Well we'll see like I said the rescue group still hasn't gotten back to us. Moms starting to think maybe they don't want to find her a home?? Talk to ya later,
Kisses, Fergie

  Welcome Cody
So glad to meet you! You are looking awesome but we definately need more pics! My mom wanted me to stop by & say hi & ask how you are doing in your new home. How long have you been in your new home? My mom is very curious because she is considering adopting a female Moluccan & is worried about "bad habits" & how to change them. The rescue that has the M2 hasn't gotten back to mom yet (so it may not matter) but mom believes in being prepared. She's got me & my sis Gabby (also an Umbrella) but we are verrrry well behaved by cockatoo standards. Did you have any bad habits that your parronts had to work with you on when you first moved in? & if so how did they deal with them? If I'm being too nosy just let me know. Please come by & check out all my pics. I'm verrrry proud mom finally came thru & got us an outdoor aviary. So we've been able to spend almost every day outside here lately & moms gotten some of our new pics up. We even got to play in the sprinkler today! Lots of fun! So come by when you get a chance
Kisses, Fergie

Thanks for stopping by!
I'm sooooo sorry to hear that you had beak and feather disease. Thats what they thought I had at first but all my tests came back negative! phew! It's just pesky red mites!
So I wonder how you got rid of it? I thought it was something you had the rest of your life? I thought there was no cure for it?
I'm just so happy your healthy now and that you have such a great mom!!!!

So did you have a nice Memorial day weekend? We just stayed home and relaxed..

My mom was born in Madison Heights MI and she grew up in Gaylord. Do you know where thats at? My mom moved to FL about 15 years ago because she was tired of the snow and cold. It's so nice and warm here in FL!

Well I better get going. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope we can be friends.

Have a great day!!

Love ya,
