Hi! My name is Fistik

I am an Eclectus from sydney, Intl.



7 years old   M

Eclectus

cashew nuts, pomegranate, banana, almonds.

On the shower rail, on the curtain rod, in front of the heater on a cold day, on top of the TV so everyone can watch me!

Bites my ear when he wants something. When im on the phone he makes silly noises to distract me. He runs all over my keyboard when i'm trying to do my work on my computer. He breaks the buttons on my shirts.

She scratches my beak gently, gives me nice warm showers and gently blow-dries me and she plays peek-a-boo with me every day. To show her my appreciation i tell her "I love you" and gently play with her hair. She sings me Twinkle Twinkle Little Star at night when its time to sleep. Im trying to learn how to sing it too.

Fascinated with emptying the contents of my handbag. Loves hiding in the cupboard on a coat hanger. He farts when he stretches his feet and wings..

  hey fistek
good to see you again. Harrison's is a yummy diet, mom feeds me that all the time. Mom used to mix a couple kinds together so there was some variety in my bowl, but she was the only person buying anything but lifetime coarse, so the vet stopped carrying it. Sadie likes to put all her hard pellets in water to soften them up and make them easier to swallow. I only have a water bottle, so i get a pellet, then fill my beak with water and make mush in my mouth. It's easier to eat that way. My beans & rice is ready, time to eat!! ~~edgar

Come visit me, Edgar & Sadie.

You do have weather opposite ours it is so humid here that I don't think I'll ever have trouble with dry skin depending upon what kind of weather we have this winter, but even then we won't use the heater a lot. What kind of food so you eat? I have read that some birds have to use vitamins if the live in very cold climates and they usually get put on organic food as well. After all the research on food and my vet thinks Harrisons is a better diet we just went with that. We also will be using organic veggies an fruit as well but are told that it should be only about 10% of my diet. We will let you know how it works out.

  Hi Fistik
Chi chi and I want to say happy hatchday to you happy hatchday to you and hope you have a great one too. Chi chi didnt tell you in her blog cause she wanted to say it with me to you. I have a spectrum light but didnt for a while but maybe that is what is helping my feathers too. Mom never takes me outside unless I am in a smaller cage out there cause one time I flew across the road and half way up the pasture field with mom in hot pursuit. You should of seen her climb that cow fence hihihi. Then another time we were sitting in the yard and a hawk started to circle us so mom makes me go in a cage to go outside now anytime. Chi chi has to go in a cage too outside cause she can get enough lift even if she just had her wings clipped. What kind of vitamins do you take? What kind of bird food do you eat? Mom was scrubbing floors today and then had that sweeper running and you know what it does to me right? Yea I love being sprayed then so mom did that but nope not quite enough so got in my water bowl. Mom says I look funny standing in it with just my feet and butt wet hihihi. I had to be in my house today while mom and dad went to visit with dads mom at the hospital. I was not too happy about that but mom did put treats in my maze so that helped some. I think I gave Chi chi a headache with my complaining about it though. “Little by little, day by day, friends and love grow that way” I have an extra perch here for you so stop in anytime and visit me…your always welcome. V4U …wing hugs….Gus

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Hi Fistik
Mom said she thinks Gus got his crop infection cause she would bite out of an apple and then share with Gus and that is the worse thing she read to do cause humans have lots of bacteria on their teeth. What kind of vitamins are ekkie vitamins? An ekkie has a long esopogus so they cant tolerate vitamins like most fids can. If you need to ask anyone questions about ekkies a good site where mom goes to buy food and stuff for Gus is at www.prettyparrot.com and they sure are helpful too. They raise ekkies so has helped mom alot with Gus. I never had my wings cut till I was around 5 so guess its never too late Fistik hihihihi.Mom says mine and Gus are growing in already though. Mom usually lets me fly a while till she gets them clipped again. Mostly the reason she gets Gus is cause his nails get so long and he dont like them long and is always looking at them then hihihihi. Well today was a nice day at last. Mom was busy washing clothes and hanging them out. Then her and dad went to see dads mom cause she is in the hospital so we had to be in our houses then. It don’t bother me cause I am only out in the evening but you should of heard that Gus complain. If I could talk I sure would tell him to be quiet hihihi. “Little by little, day by day, friends and flowers grow that way” I have an extra perch here for you so stop in anytime and visit me….your always welcome.

  hi
My mom uses quick-lok crocks so I can't throw them anywhere. But I do like to take my food out of the dish and throw it on the bottom of my cage before I eat it. Seeds are a special treat for me and I usually get them right on my table. Mom gave me a new toy yesterday, its a rubber ball with holes in it so I can see the bell, but I can't get to it! I shake it as hard as I can and bite it, but I just can't get to the bell. At first I screamed at it 'cause I couldn't get it, but now I just growl, mom thinks that's funny. ~~edgar

ps, I only look sweet, just ask mom's fingers! haha

  the sink....
Mom stuck me in there. I didn't have a choice. It was bad, really bad. Even before the water came on. And it was just a drip, but I didn't like it at all and I grabbed the dish rack and launched myself out of there. Then she had the audacity to put me back! I haven't been back since, but something tells me she's plotting new ways to get me wet... ~~edgar

  Hi Fistik
I missed you little buddy and sorry you been sick. I had that bacterial infection in my crop last March and mom had to take me to the vet and I was on antibiotics too. I was plucking some then and got worse and mom took me back but I wasnt sick no more so that was good. Vet said ekkies do pluck so that is when mom called the lady at prettyparrot and got me on a new diet etc. My feathers were all getting black on the ends too but might of been the meds and probably the foods I was on before cause now they are all coming in nice again and I dont pluck or if I do its not much. Mom says I seem so much happier too.That was only 3 months ago so am sure in 6 months will see a big difference. If you want the phone number or anything we can give it to you or look at www.prettyparrot.com and it will tell you all. Yes mom got my picture and Chi chi if you go to www.dumpr.net you can download one of yours and do it and its a easy site to work on too. Mom needs easy believe me hihihi.
We got a box in the mail today and mom said it was mostly for me but I didn’t see any toys at all in it. It looks like my pellets and supplements mom puts in my food. Darn I was wanting some new toys too. Oh well guess eating is more important then playing hihiihi. “Angels are not so very few—for in my life, I have you”. Stop in and visit me any ole time…your always welcome here!! V4U. Kisses and hugs from your friend, Gus

  Hi Fistik
We sure are missing you but just thought you were busy and sorry to find out your sick!! That is a bummer. Gus had the bacterial infection last winter in his crop and had to be on antibiotic too. Mom has been getting his food from prettyparrot and supplements too just for ekkies and that company is pretty good and will help mom out in alot of things she has questions on. They raise ekkies so know alot about them. It isnt the prettybird but prettyparrot. Well today was another rainy day but tomorrow the weather man says is suppose to be nice. I know he said that before too but it rained then too so will just have to wait and see what it really does hihihi. “Angels are not so very few—for in my life, I have you.” Stop in and visit me any ole time…your always welcome here!!

Yeah, I have two big kitty friends, they're a little different and I'm not so sure about them. They look at me funny, but I just scream and they run away, so that's funny. I don't get what's up with all you loving showers--water is just SCARY!! ~~edgar

I'm with you, I love showers! Not so sure about the fluffy towel after, but the feather dryer is fun. I don't know what edgar's problem is. Glad you're staying cozy warm at night now, mom would be really happy to find that edgar's biting could be fixed that easy! Come on back any time ~~sadie

  Hi Fistik
Well sometimes mom puts me in the shower too and if she puts me in the sink then uses the sprayer on me so I like that. In the winter she blow dries me and I like that too. I let mom and Cindy touch my wings and even skin sis cause they say tickle tickle and laugh and I say it now too and then laugh like they do. Mom always laughs when I do that. Mom made baked potatoes for supper tonight. She gave me some and I sure do love them. She said most things are good for me but only in moderation. This from a woman that loves sweets can you believe? hihihi “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all”.

  Hi Fistik
Well we just got our wings and nails clipped again. I fly like you do from curtain rod to curtain rod and the chandalier and then its not long till mom is taking us to get groomed hihihi. Gus hasnt flown in the house much but took off outside one day with mom in hot pursuit and scared silly. Now she never takes them chances with him at all. She didnt think he could fly but the wind caught him just so and off he went. Today was windy but humid again and calling for rain again tonight. We finally got to be outside while mom cleaned our cages and tore them apart. The sun felt good with that breeze blowing thru. Almost like I was on an island hihihi. The wild birds sure were making a lot of noise today though. They were so louds they didn’t even hear me yell back to them!!

Your wing span is very pretty too on the bottom of your page. So you bit your mom eh? I have done that to my mom too but dont bite hard and we play. Mom gave me a real bath this morning and said dunking in the drinking bowl doesn’t qualify as a bath hmmptt. Mom and I were sitting out in the grass and heard noise up in the sky and there was a crow and a hawk!! Well we sure flew in the house fast cause mom said them hawks would take me away!! Good thing mom was right there with me. “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all”.
