I was in the bird store buying food, treats and toys for the ever-spoiled Barney & Fred... when I noticed little baby Parker looking at me. It was love at first site! I know you shouldn't buy pets on "impulse"... but I already had 2 conures and figured one more couldn't possibly be any more trouble, so I brought her home that day and she joined our flock!.

  A humble message from your King
Hello my dearest friends. It is with great pride and humble gratitude that I accept the crown and the reign as your BOTM for March 2010. I most certainly couldn't have done it without you, I know that very well. You are the ones who made this special day happen for me. And of course, I must thank my loyal frother Zebers for all of his hard work on keeping everybirdie updated on my progress in the hospital. I have asked Zebers to join me in the castle as part of my thank you for all of his help. I would also like to take this time to announce that the castle is open 24/7 for ALL of my BBFF's! I hope to see every single one of you this month!

It sounds as if Zebers is already working on making the castle a little bit more "handicap accessible". If anybirdie would like to volunteer to help, please stop by Zebers page. And of course there is an open bar and buffet for every volunteer. Zebers is already thinking about how he is going to put wheels on my throne!

My very first act as king, I want to wish a very dear friend a very happy hatchday. Jenny Lynn my dear, you and your flock have been with me every step of the way and have been a great encouragement to me, my flock and my mommy too. I want to wish you a Royal Happy Hatchday from all of us! We love you very much!!

I would also like to dedicate this day to the memories of our dear BBFF's that we have lost during my campaign. Dusty, Comet and Lee-Roial. We all miss you terribly and love you very much. I hope you can see me, your king, bowing down to your memory. Fly free dear ones.

Well, I need to go finish getting the tour of the castle before I find my royal perch for the night. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart my dear friend. Love you so very much!! ~King Huey

  Hi Handsome Parker!!
GREAT NEWS!! Huey got the A-OK from Doc Melissa to go back to his very own cage full time! He's SOOO happy! When Mommy put him in there and then put his food and water dishes back in there he realize that he was getting to stay he started screaming and squawking and scurrying around as fast as his one leg could carry him. As of right now he is snuggled in his happy hut sound asleep. And tonight it really IS a happy hut! It's great to see him feeling so much better...it's never fun to see your frother in pain and not feeling good. AND tomorrow Doc Melissa said that Huey can take a shower again with mommy! He LOVES his showers so he will be really excited about that too!

Now here's the bad news...Ellie had to see Doc Melissa today too and she has a bacterial infection. It's not a big deal and mommy caught it REALLY early (so early that Doc Melissa said that there are only some extra bacteria) so she is on antibiotics too...the same kind Huey is on actually. She was just feeling a little off yesterday and this morning so mommy decided to bring her with. Doc Melissa said that it's no big deal at all and it could have been caused from anything. (I think it's from sneaking my time on the computer!!) But she should be feeling better even by tomorrow.

Well, that's what's been going on today! Hope you are having a fantastic day and thank you again for your loyal support for Huey's run for BOTM!! We love you!! ~Zebers for my frother Huey.

  Hello Hansome Parker!
Zebers here. I need to apologize for my fister...little rascal snuck up to the computer while I was napping! Crazy girl! I hope she wasn't offensive in any way...she has a tendency to get into trouble without meaning to. She's locked up tight tonight!!

Huey is still doing great. His mood is getting better and better every day and tomorrow he gets to see Doc Melissa to see if he can maybe go back in his cage! MAYBE Mommy keeps reminding him. Doc Melissa might say not yet, so don't get your hopes up too much. But I already know that they are up! Well, it's very late here and we have lots more blogging to do. Love you lots and thank you so much for your support for Huey for BOTM! ~Zebers for my frother Huey

  Hey Parker!!
Shhhh!! It's Ellie! I snuck out of the bird room while Zebers was taking a nap and stole the puter! Tehehe! Mommy always called me the little terrorista...though I'm not sure why. Hmmmm....

Anyway, I gotta tell you something CRAZY. Mommy got a call from the Humane Society today saying that they had two sun conures that just got dropped off and they didn't have the facilities or the knowledge to take care of them so they asked if mommy could find them new homes. Of course mommy said yes, so now we have THREE screaming yellow buggers in this house!! Geez!! Thankfully the other two are in quarantine, so it's not THAT loud! Sheesh! And the other two both have two legs and don't live in a fish tank. Tehehe! I know I shouldn't tease my poor frother. I really do love him very much, but what are big fisters for if not to tease the younger ones? Anyway, speaking of the one-legged yellow screamer, he's doing great. Still taking his meds like a trooper. Mommy said that he has to stay in the fish tank until he goes to see Doc Melissa again which is on Thursday. So if the doc says he can be back in his cage full time, that's what mommy will do. Huey is hoping so much that's what the doc will say that he even has his toes crossed (literally!!! BWAHAHAHA!!! Ahem...sorry Huey.) But I really gotta fly before Zebers wakes up and finds me on this here 'puter. Boy I'd really be in trouble then! Thanks for all your BOTM votes for my screaming yellow frother!!! Love you! ~Ellie, the little Terrorista

  Hi Parker!
That's so great that you and Nikki get along so nice! I just like to be with my mommy best, so I don't spend much time with my frothers and fisters. My mom thinks that you are just the cutest thing ever! She kinda has a thing for conures you know. (Her boyfriend likes to say that she has a thing for anything with feathers, but hey...Tehehe!)
Thanks so much for stopping by with your support! We're a little disappointed that the Colts lost the big game last night, but not too bad. Did you see any good commercials?? Mommy missed most of them...mostly from just not paying attention. Tehehe! Only 2 days now until my surgery. I'm starting to get a bit nervous, but mommy has been telling me everything that's going to happen. She promises that the vet said she can be the last thing that I see before the medicine makes me sleep, and she'll be the first one that I see when I wake up. She said that she will be there the WHOLE time and won't ever leave me. Then I have to stay with Dr Melissa overnight, but mommy said that she will be back to pick me up the next day. I'm kinda scared to be without my mommy all night, but she's going to make sure that I have my birdie binky ring and my happy hut, so I will be comfortable. Somebirdies have been asking me about what I'm having surgery for, so I posted a bunch of info on my page under "How We Met" if you wanna check it out. Thanks again for your wonderful support for BOTM! Love you! ~Huey

  Hi Parker!!
Thanks so much for stopping by with your support! It's so amazing to see how many of my BBFF's come out to vote for me...it's overwhelming actually. Well, only 4 days now until my surgery. I'm not nervous, but mommy sure is. She doesn't tell me that, but I know. We birdies can sense that. Are you gonna watch the football game tomorrow? We sure are! Hope you are having a great weekend! Love ya! ~Huey

P.S. Have we already told you how much we love your pictures?? Who is the nanday conure that you are always with? You guys must be best friends.

  Hi Parker!
Oh, you are missing out on all the snow! It sure is beautiful!! You really need to check it out sometime...maybe just on TV though...cuz you can't go outside when there is lots of snow. It's waaaaay too cold!! BRRRR!! Oh my goodness oh my goodness, OH MY GOODNESS!!! Mommy is SOOOO excited! See, she helped rescue and rehabilitate a poor blue crowned conure named Kiwi (not our frother Kiwi, another one). Kiwi is a VERY special bird and mommy says that he has a beautiful spirit and a wonderful, peaceful energy about him. Even after being terribly neglected and severely malnourished (to the point that he is 30 grams underweight!) he is so kind and trusting. He really has a special place in my mommy's heart (not as special as MY place...but almost!) Anyway, he got adopted the other day by a wonderful forever family and his forever family has made him a page here on BC!!! So we are asking a BIG favor...could you go over and visit him? His name is Kiwi and his number is 163505. That would be SOOO great! Thanks so very much BBFF!! ~Huey

  Hi Parker!

My Dad is "C." He visited me at the bird store for about a month while I was being weaned. He is very patient but he said that I was definitely worth the wait. He brought Cookie home before me and that made that silly bird think that she was "queen of the roost!" I love the pictures of you and Nikki cuddling. I wish that Cookie would do that with me.

Come visit again!

Hello BBFF! Well, I need to apologize for not stopping by this weekend, but we had kind of an emergency. See mommy had this thing called a seizure and was in the hospital for awhile. It was really scary! But not to worry. So far the doctors say that everything in her head looks normal, but they want her to see a neurologist (so many big words!!! WHEW!!) just in case. Hope you stop by real soon...I'm running for BOTM! We promise to be better at getting back to you! Love ya!! ~Huey

WE FINALLY MOVED IN!!!! We are finally living in our brand new home! You should see our bird room!! It's at least twice the size of our old one! And we live in a HOUSE now, not an apartment. And it's on a farm!! Ellie has gotten to see the horses, but the rest of us prefer to stay inside for now. We were pretty nervous at first...all these strange people were coming into our apartment and taking out all of our stuff. Then we had to go into our travel cages and they even took our cages!! Then we had to drive for a little ways and we got out of the car in a different place. It was pretty scary. Then we go into a new house and...there were all of our cages!!! It was so great to get back in them. All of our toys were still there, and our whole flock was there!! Ellie was so happy to be in her cage that she started dancing and singing! It really made mommy laugh. OH!! And that's the best part of all...mommy is still here!! She promised she wouldn't leave us, and she is still here every day. It's really a nice house...really big! Mommy really seems to like it too! Here's our newest flock address:

Well my BBFF...we sure hope that everything is going well for you and your flock...sorry it's been so long since we have stopped by. We've sure missed you terribly!! Hope to hear from you very soon!! Lots of love and beaky kisses ~Huey and the flock

  Thank you for your very kind words. I miss Peanut SO much. I can't stand not having any birds in the house, so I made a down payment on a precious baby Senegal (couldn't find any blue crowns locally.) She is still weaning so I visit her/him every day. When I bring her/him (!)home, I will set up a page for her. Having a hard time waiting!

  I just want you to know that my blue crown conure, Peanut, died on July 3rd. It was sudden and totally devastating. Please give Parker a hug for me.

  Hiya Parker!
Hello there! I am so glad that you stopped by! I'm new to the BC myself...my frothers and fisters have been on for quite awhile, but I'm kinda new to the flock, so I'm new here too! I sure do love your pictures! It looks like you love to take baths as much as I do! I like to dip my tosies in first to check the temperature, but then I dive right in! Tehehe! It sure makes my mommy luagh! And it looks like your fister, is that Nikita?, and you get along really well too. That's great! Looks like you come from a flock of all conures! There is only 2 conures in my flock, me and my frother Huey who is a sun conure and he's the flock leader. There are 8 of us in all though, so it gets to be pretty fun sometimes! Mom says we're all crazy. Well, I sure hope you stop by again sometime soon! Maybe looking at all your beautiful green feathers will help me stop picking at all of mine! I'll be sure to keep an open perch for you anytime you want to stop by!! Have a great day! ~Kiwi

  Hi Parker Parrot! Thank you for visiting me. If I knew that you were coming by I would have had some apples and walnuts for you. I already have some q-tips for us to share.

Aren't you afraid of your waterbowl? I hate water and it frustrates my human to no end.

I love your pictures. Your human did a great job with them.

Come visit again!
