  Yes, Cody is a peach front conure. Main difference from half moon is that half moon is chunkier and a bit larger. Peach fronts are about the size of a cockatiel. He says a few words, when he feels like it. And calls me baby, lol. I guess cause I called him that when I was handfeeding him. I am so sorry to learn of Lady Ellie's accident, I lost a blue crown many years ago to an accident, and it hurts me to this day as he was such a special bird. Here's another vote for Perky!

Come visit me, Hawkeye Cricket, Cody, Katy, BeeBop & Piper.

  What a great pic!
I found your profile and just HAD to write to tell you what fantistic photograph that is! I just love the way you caught your bird just perfectly in that pose. I love Bourke's , I think they are the sweetest little things. Here's vote for Perky!

  Heeeelllooooo!
Hello to you from Gandalf. I saw a little note from one of you and I'm not sure who wrote it. Fess up! Which one of you was it? You are all so colorful and cute, so I'm not sure who to blog back to!!!
Well, anyhow, I'm just thinking of you and what a nice large flock you have. Do you all get along? Fly around like a true flock of birdies? And chase your mom around the house? :)~ We will do that...once we can fly!
Until next time!!!

  Punkin here
OH BOY! I hit the jackpot! I'm writing another story and want you guys to be in it. Not the big birds this time just you keets and Shammy. It's just a fun game but I'll be sure you all get to play. hehehe I don't know if your flock got a copy of any of my stories so I'll give you part A of #1
Here it is Baseball season once again and all the teams are working up and beginning play. I told her that I was so glad there wasn't a finch team. Start picturing it.... Here's Punkin at the plate.....YOU EXPECT ME TO PICK THAT UP?????....then she finally gets the bat up and it wavers terribly. The ball is pitched....Punkin is so glad that the catcher has such a big glove otherwise she and the ball would be gone. hehehe And THEN the B&G team is up to plate.....Here comes one sliding into base. HEY WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BASEMAN? Or maybe just TRYING to pitch a ball that is bigger than our whole body. hehehehe Oh I gotta stop, My sides are splitting. Anyway, we're going to the games and rooting for everyone. Maybe if it's really quiet you'll hear us. Have a great day.
