PLEASE HELP JERSEY TO BE AWARDED BIRD OF THE WEEK/ MONTH. I live in Australia. I was named after The Sopranos (HBO) home town.
I was so beautiful and unique, mum just had to take me home which is good cos I can play with my big brother.
Jersey passed away on his brother's bday (Archie), the vet said that it was "death by misadventure" He was standing on top of his cage,and decided to view the insides from up there a little closer by poking his head through the bars, mum helped him out but he later passed on (we believe he suffered a hernia from being upside down and then quickly coming back up). We miss him so much.

Hi! My name is Jersey (passed away 01 May 2007)

I am a Cockatiel from Manhatten, NY.

Jersey Persey & Jers, Baby

8 years old   M


Sunflower seeds, millet, carrots and broccoli.

On top of the wardrobe and in the upside down lampshade.

Being cuddled too much.

They let us out of our cage to play as soon as they come home and she gives me the personal space I need.

following my big brother Archie and copying everything he does..

Stick to your guns, and have things your way. Adventures are great, but beware of danger..

Jersey passed just days before my Skittles, so I know how hard it is. It does get better with time, I promise. And, I have found a new baby to help fill some of the void as Skittles was my one and only. So here's a vote for Jersey - hoping she'll be the next BOTW ~ Cindy & Pico

On October 5th 2007 at 7:45am My Sweet Lola flew to the Rainbow Bridge. Yesterday Lola was found on the floor crying because one of the other birds had chased her off her cage. I checked her out to see if she was hurt and comforted her and she seemed to be fine. This morning at breakfast she was on the bottom of her cage struggling to breath. 10 Minutes later she took her last breath in my hands. Lola was the sweetest baby and will be in my heart always. Hippie Boy said his final goodbyes to her with a loving preen. Please say a prayer for her for a safe flight to the Rainbow Bridge.

Jersey (& Mom), I'm so glad you visited Skittles page. Also, I'm so sorry to hear of Jersey passing - was she ill? I've been coming across several Cockatiels whenever I'm in the bird store, pet store, etc. I have to admit - cockatiels are really sweet birds! Jers, I'm leaving you a vote. Love ya, Cindy (P.S.

  To The Aussie Flock
You asked how I'm doing; I'm just grand, thank you. It was so nice to hear from you. My mom and family completely understand your forgetting that Jersey is no longer with you...and calling him to his cage, saying good night to family recently lost two precious pets, one to old age, another too early to diabetes. I still hear them say that they almost called for the dogs or wondered why they weren't in the kitchen begging when food was being cooked. Loving those dogs was a 16/10 year habit!! Even my fellow African Grey still calls the one dog's name. It seems odd when the little rat terrier doesn't come running. Dogs, birds, it just plain hurts to lose them. The way you care for Jersey after his death tells me he was a well-loved and cared-for bird in his living days...he had to have been thrilled to be a part of your flock! You asked about my wings; no, they are not clipped. I have arthritis in one joint that keeps that wing from extended far enough to enable me to fly. So, I'm a grounded Macaw! That's why it was easy to take me along on a boat ride on the Mississippi River. The beach that it appears I'm on is merely a sandbar/island in the middle of the Muddy Mississippi! It was a lovely day though and I enjoyed giving the seagulls something to cackle about. They hung around, staring at me until I said "Hello". They then flew away and never came close again. Good luck on that progressive increase in your flock. Based on what I've learned from meeting so many birds on these pages, there isn't a bird that wouldn't make a great addition to your flock. I am rather partial to those Macaws though! We're as funny and loving as we are loud on occasion. It's a very nice package deal, if you ask me! Again, so nice to hear from you. Take care! R('>

  Hi To Jersey's Mom
I will continue to come and visit Jersey's page and vote for him each day. Hopefully with plenty of votes the Bird Channel will also honor him with Bird Of The Week. We are votoing for a dear Amazon who went tot eh Rainbow Bridge on May 12th as well. He was 57 years old!! May was a horrible month and I am so glad it is over. I love my baby Spirit Wind, Cindy Lost Skittle who is now Bird Of The Month, You lost sweet Jersey and Leslie lost her dear Beauty. Not a good month at all. I'll continue to keep Jersey in my thoughts and prayers. He looks so much like Burgin who just turned 24 years old yesterday. Burgin is also blind. He does pretty well for an old fart..LOl Myself and my flock are here for you anytime.
Amy and the flock

  So Sorry
I just found your site and heard from Sunny and Max and Romeo that you lost your sweet baby on May 1st. I am so sorry. We suffered a great loss here as well. Our hearts are still heavy. Please know that your sweet Jersey is healthy, and happy with our Spirit Wind and Skittles at the Rainbow Bridge. They are there waiting for us to be with them one day. Until then the rest of here on earth will carry out our duties and help the ones who need us. If you would to come by and say hello Burgin my 24 year old brother(on May 31st) and I would love to be friends with the rest of your flock..
Our sincere condolences.

  Rainbow here... say I'm sorry that I never got to meet Jersey on these pages. My friends Sunny, Max & Romeo told me they'd lost a special friend like I did this week. It's so sad to no longer have a birdie in your life that's been such a fun part of your every day. What a great life it looks like Jersey enjoyed; things to study, nibble on, watch out the window. I love the photo of the three at the beach! That's fantastic! I hope you have lots of great pictures and warm memories of Jersey. A vote for Jersey...Birdie hugs to you. R

How exciting about a new cage mate! I am a pied but not platinum though. How wonderful. So sorry to hear that your preening gland is blocked and that your feathers are plucked. It's tough being in the feather growing business all the time! We hope your Vet visits all go well. I think I am picking my feathers cause Maxi still isn't singing the "I want a baby song" yet and Maybe I am frustrated. She must still be recuperating but doing great. We had a big thunderstorm in the AM and lots of rain for Mom going to work. She had an umbrella but still her coat got a little wet.

Hi! We are so glad you are almost done with your meds. Max hated the syringe but she was a good girl most of the time. Once Mom finally figured out to give her half at a time so Max would not fuss with the later part of the syringe it got much easier. She put a drop of med on the end and let Max beak it. Most of the time she had it in her beak just fine but on occasion she would shake her head to get it all out and splatter Mom's glasses all up (good thing it wasn't her eyes!) So Mom figured that Max got some of the meds and they did work but by no means did she get all of it. I hope you guys are better patients with your Mom. Take evey drop! It is important. We hope ARchie is doing much better with everything. We still have cold nights but it is finally starting to warm up. All the trees are in bloom (not just cherry) - ornamental pear, dogwood and who knows what else. The world is really waking up here. We did have a very warm winter and can't complain except for a few snow and ice storms toward the end of the season. we hope your Mom gets to pursue whatever she wants to do. We love our vet and would love your Mom too if she were taking care of us too. Except some of us hate to be handled in any way.
Well by for now and enjoy the sunshine! Give your Mom a wonderful sweet song when she gets home after a long day (and your dad too!) We do that for our Mom when she gets home too.
Birdie kisses to you

  Hi Jersey
I am also a pearl but I lost my pearl markings when I had my 6 month molt. Pearl and I are doing OK but she is still young so I don't want to push her. We are getting along and life together is good. Max improves every day. Mom started giving her half her big syring full at a time so that her little beak does not get too full at once. Max takes it well. By tuesday she will be done
All the best for now
