  Hi sweet Scarlett, Ziggy, Jenny & Angel Christy...
...enjoy your day at the castle with Queen Cori! I am wishing all my friends a great Saturday and a wonderful weekend! Our beautiful Spring is is busting out all over the place, this is what we have been waiting of all the long cold Winter! With it brings a few tornadoes and severe rain, floods, and mudslides, but with temps in the mid 70's and low 80's, its the chance worth taking! I gotta run, it's a busy work day for daddy, but I will guarantee the old guy will not get done all he has written on his 'todotoday' list! Give my love to all in your pretty Spring time home, see ya tomorrow...

Love from your Angel Christy, Jenny Lynn, & Ziggy Macaw

  Dear Queen Scarlett
Congrats on winning BOTD today! Here's a basket of corn on the cob, peas, brown rice, and a variety of nuts for you to enjoy while in the castle! Have a greyt day with Queen Cori, and Boo Boo!
Please tell my Sweetheart, Puffin, that I'm sorry I haven't been by lately. As you know, I went on the Pirate Pearl with Captain Sam I Am. I had a greyt time, and earned my pirate certificate! However, during a battle, a cannonball from the enemy went very close to my head and burned off my crest! I'm waiting for it to grow back and did'nt want her to see me with it all burned off! I'm OK, but if I had been a little taller, I wouldn't have a head at all, let alone a crest!Hehee!!!
Anyway, please tell her I love her and am waiting to hear when she wants to get married! Also, she can come to my page on facebook anytime and see my pictures! My page is called Hen House.

  Hi Scarlet
How are u sweetie? Well, it looks like luck is on our side today! Our county was supposed to get 10 plus inches of snow from late Saturday night thru Monday 1pm, but it's been down graded to 3-6 inches...tho it's snowing pretty good right now! Luckily, it looks like the g-kids will have a 2 he delay instead of A cancellation...all snow days have been used & any more missed days must be made up at end of school year.
Today, we will finish the Parrot's Bill of Rights.

A PARROT'S BILL OF RIGHTS (Pt 2)
7. PLEASE DON'T PUNISH ME.
Just as I don't always understand ur peculiarities, u may not understand mine. I don't TRY to get in trouble - remember...a house is NOT the jungle. If I DO screw up, don't yell at me & NEVER hit me! I have very sensitive ears & I may never trust u again if u strike me. Hands are sometimes scary things to us. (Why in the world would u not be zygodactylous like us?) Even more importantly, we don't learn by punishment. We are gentle creatures who only strike back to protect ourselves; we learn through patience & love.
8. SPEAK MY "LANGUAGE".
I know u get upset with me when I knock over my water bowl, throw food, scream or pluck my feathers. I don't do these to annoy u - I am probably trying to tell u something (perhaps that I am hurting, lonely, or sad). Learn to speak MY (body) language. Remember that I, alone of all creatures on this planet, learn to speak yours!
9. SEE ME AS AN INDIVIDUAL.
I am a unique & feeling being. No two of us are alike. Please don't be disappointed in me if I don't talk like u wanted, or can't do the tricks that ur friend's parrot can do. But if u pay close attention to me (& I always empathize with u, whether u know it or not), I will show u a unique being who will give u so much more than talking & playing. Give me a chance to show u who I am; I think you'll find the effort worth it. And remember - I am NOT an ornament; I DO NOT enhance ANY living room decor. And I am NOT a status symbol - if u use me as such, I might nip at your turned-up nose!
10. SHARE YOUR LOVE WITH ME.
Above all, PLEASE remember that u are my Special Person. I put all my trust & faith in u. We parrots are used to being monogamous (no bar-hopping for us!) So please don't go away for long periods or give me away. That would be a sadness from which I may never recover.
If that seems to be asking a lot, remember - u could have learned about my needs BEFORE bringing me home. Even having a baby or taking a new job isn't a fair reason - you made a commitment to me FIRST! And if u think that u must leave me because u might die, provide for me forever after u leave. I may live to a ripe old age but I can't provide for myself. Remember I'm in a small cage amongst people who are NOT of my blood.
AWE SHUCKS! Blog too long & cut off! Will finish last part tomorrow & continue with first aid - poisoning & toxicity. See u tomorrow sweetie!
Love & a vote
Tia

  Hi Scarlet
How are u sweetie? Congrats to my BBFF Snowflake for winning BOTM! She will be an amazing queen!

A PARROT'S BILL OF RIGHTS. by Stewart A. Metz, M.D.
1. GET TO KNOW ABOUT PARROTS BEFORE U BRING ME HOME.
I am NOT a domesticated pet like a dog or cat. I still have the spirit of the jungle in me. I have special needs, which u may find it hard to fill. Please don't learn these too late for my well-being. And please don't acquire one of my cousins wild from the jungle...it will jeopardize his survival & well-being, & that won't be a party for u either!
2. GIVE ME THE LARGEST HOME POSSIBLE.
I am used to flying through rainforests or savannahs. I have given up this great gift for ur pleasure. At the very least, give me enough room to flap my wings & exercise. And o need toys for my amusement & wood to chew...otherwise, I might confuse ur home with the forest & its trees.
3. GIVE ME A NUTRITIOUS DIET.
I need a wide variety of fresh & nutritious foods, even if they take time to prepare. I cannot survive on seed alone. Take time to learn what mynneeds are.
4. LET ME HAVE A "SOCIAL LIFE".
I am a gregarious flock animal...but I am NOT one of u. I need lots of socialization to learn how to act with u, & with my siblings. I also need to have adequate quality time with u every day - no matter what it schedule or other needs are. I am a living, feeling creature. Above all, I need to be able to have complete trust in u, & count on ur predictability in looking after me - EVERY DAY.
5. LET ME BE CLEAN.
I may like to drop food or even throw it, but I need meticulous cleanliness to be healthy. My skin itches without frequent showers, the barbs of my feathers won't seal if they become oily & worst of all, I may become ill if my food & water is not always sanitary.
6. I NEED MY OWN DOCTOR.
U may not understand my physiology & therefore u may not recognize it early on when I get sick. And it may be too late when u do, because I hide my illnesses (remember what I said about my being an animal of the jungle, where there are lots of predictors). And I need an avian vet - a specialisy (no HMOs for me please). If u can't afford one, perhaps u shouldn't have taken me home.
I will send u the 2nd part tomorrow. Have a great day sweetie!
Love & a vote
Tia

  Hi Scarlet
How are u sweetie? WOW, did this month fly by! I can't believe this is my last day as ur BOTM queen! But I'm very happy & excited for my dear friend Snowflake, who will be my successor! First thing tomorrow, I will hand over the castle keys, & take her by the wing & give her the grand tour of her new home for the month!
Tomorrow, I will send u the first part of A Parrot's Bill of Rights. It's like a parrot owners manual, short version, with a bit of comic relief added in! Today, I will finish A Parrot's Prayer. I have to warn u, the second part is as heartbreaking as the first, & will leave a lump in ur throat.

A PARROT'S PRAYER (cont.)
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the macaws, cockatoos, amazons & conures that are stripped of their vocal cords for screaming; their sensitive beaks cut back to prevent biting.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all birds that end up for sale in pet shops or breeders like used merchandise, unwanted & frightened in strange surroundings with nothing more than the familiar sight of bars on a cage.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the neglected birds that are sick with infections from filthy conditions & malnourishment that may never recover & know what it is like to feel healthy & be playful.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the misconceived parrots who were beaten, stabbed, blinded & burned for just being a parrot.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For every african grey, cockatoo & macaw that punishes itself by maiming their bodies & plucking their feathers & for those who have lost all spirit of life & sway their head low from side to side slowly into insanity.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
We ask humbly of you dear Lord to look upon all of your magnificent feather creations, protect them from evil & harm caused by man & to bring forth an awakening in the human heart & make it a kinder, gentler world for all captive birds.
AMEN.
Written by Sally Brooks

Every time mom reads this, her eyes fill with tears & she holds me a little closer & gives me extra kisses. As much as she loves me, she just can't imagine people being so despicable to do these things to these wondrous & magnificent creatures! I know that everybirdy's moms feel the same way...especially the moms that have rehomed birds and rescues, who have given a home to broken & battered birds...& God bless each one of you! I hope u have a great day, & I'll see u tomorrow sweetie!

Mom would like to thank everybirdy for their encouragement & support for her quitting smoking...it really means a lot to her! She has been "quitting" for the last year or so with not much success! She is sooooo happy that the Lord took away withdrawal torture! Mom could never quit before coz she could never make it past the 3 weeks of torturous withdrawal symptoms. But this time she had no physical withdrawal at all...which is truly a blessing from God!

  Hi Scarlet
How are u sweetie! I meant to be back sooner, but since mom is feeling a lot better, she has been busy! Plus giving me attention is a full time job! It's been over a month & mom still isn't smoking! That's another reason mom hasn't been online much...it's an activity she associates with smoking & the only time she craves one, but it's starting to go away! There is still a lot of first aid info I would like to go over, but first, we would like to share a couple things that are in one of mom's books. Both are very thought provoking & also very true. I will start with A PARROT'S PRAYER, (which is incredibly sad & infuriating!, then A PARROT'S BILL OF RIGHTS. Each should take 2 days.

A PARROT'S PRAYER
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the wild caught parrots so savagely netted & swept away from their families while their babies, dumped into burlap sacks, cried out in terror.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the exotic birds that witnessed the destruction of all the blessed trees & fled fires in fear from man's thirst to dominate, stripping the land of all its inhabitants, leaving nothing but bare ground behind.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the parrots that struggled through the capture, but died merciless in transport from the stress of overcrowded, barbaric, confinements & inconceivable horror.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the survivors that made it into captivity but exist in a nightmare of confinement unable to use their God given wings of flight as they once remembered.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the baby birds bred in captivity whose crops burned or have died needlessly from harshness of human hands.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all captive birds that have been erased from their owner's consciousness & are abandoned to a lifeless existence with only a distant memory of what it was like to hear a gentle voice from someone that used to care.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all those helpless creatures who don't know what it's like to live life as a bird or even to feel the breeze or sunlight but are doomed to darkness in closets or garages, trapped inside covered cages or shackled.

Heartbreaking, isn't it? I will finish the Parrot's Prayer tomorrow. Have a great day sweetie!

How are u sweetie? What a month I'm having! I'M THE QUEEN, but I've been banished to the dungeon (my cage is in sissy's basement)! Mom had been sick, so I don't understand why she went on vacation for 4 days to a place called a hospital! She won a trip there coz she had something called pneumonia. It seems to have been a good place for her to go coz she doesn't look like a walking zombie anymore! Another good thing that came out of her trip was that she quit smoking! It's been 3 weeks since she smoked one of those nasty things! Mom always smoked outside, & never around me, but she always smelled of those yucky things. Mom is happy, she tried to quit dozens of times but was never successful. Mom was sooooo sick, that she didn't even suffer withdrawal! Being sick gave mom a wake-up call...she struggled to breathe the last couple weeks & that scared the crap out of her! Also, not buying any cigarettes these last 3 weeks, she's had a bunch of extra money (to spend on ME of course! In the next couple days, I will resume birdie first aid blogs. I still have lots of first aid info that I want to share with all my birdie friends!

Oh, I wanted to share with all my dear friends. .my sissy Amanda's biopsy came back NORMAL!!!! We are sooooo relieved & so thankful to God that sissy doesn't have cancer! Mom was having a hard trying to pretend everything was fine so that sissy wouldn't be quite as scared! The ENT Doc seems to think it may caused by something viral. Sissy isn't going to bother pursuing it right now, but sometime in the future! First aid blogs will start back up again in the next day or 2, mom is trying to get things in order after being in the hospital. See u soon sweetie!

DAY 31
How are u sweetie? It's been a rough week here! Sissy had her biopsy on Wednesday. She's a little bit sore, but not too bad. The Dr said she would have sissy's results in a week. Mom has a horrible case of bronchitis & hasn't been out of bed since last Saturday, except for a Drs appt on Tuesday & chest x-ray on Thursday! Mom is going to have to make another appt. She's finished her antibiotic & is feeling worse instead of feeling better.

I want to thank each one of my dear friends for all ur support during my campaign, it has really meant a lot to me! I want to thank everybirdy that put my name & page # on their name tags...that really meant a lot to me! I would like to give sweet Momma Deb a special thanks for all the awesome campaign pics that she made for me! If it wasn't for Momma Deb, I wouldn't have had any pics!

Mom ALMOST forgot my Hatchday, good thing sissy remembered! I'm sure it's the fever & lack of sleep!

There is still lots & lots of first aid info that I want to share with u! I will continue doing blogs! It should take up all of Feb, maybe March too! Mom is going to get this blog out, then spoil me the rest of my Hatchday! She needs to start treating me like a queen!

How are u sweetie? I wonder if anybirdy else had trouble getting on BC yesterday? I kept getting kicked off every time I tried to leave a blog, so I'll do yesterday's blog today.
Today, we will discuss:
DANGEROUS FOODS
In general, foods which are safe & healthy for parrots to eat. However, there are exceptions. These are a few examples of foods to avoid:
ALCOHOL -- Avoid completely; consumption can lead to brain damage & death.
APPLE SEEDS -- Contain cyanide. (All pits & seeds from fruits are best avoided.)
AVOCADO -- (Including guacamole.)vPit contains cyanide, which can leech from pit into the avocado flesh. Avoid completely; consumption is known to have caused death within hours.
CHOCOLATE -- Avoid completely; consumption of even small quantities can cause rapid onset of hyperactivity, vomiting, diarrhea, heartbeat irregularities, seizures, & death. If u suspect ur bird has ingested chocolate, administer 1 cc of Pepto-Bismol & rush ur bird to an avian vet.
CAFFEINE -- Includes caffeinated beverages, coffee grounds, & tea bags or ice tea crystals. See symptoms & treatment listed under chocolate.
FAT -- AVOID feeding high fat foods; excess fat over time can cause fatty liver disease, obesity, diarrhea & oily feather texture. Excess fat in the diet can also interfere with the absorption of other nutrients, such as calcium.
ONIONS: -- Excessive amounts of cooked or raw onions can be toxic to ur bird. Too many onions in the diet can destroy red blood cells & cause anemia, jaundice, & bloody urine.
RHUBARB LEAVES -- Avoid completely; consumption can cause death.
SALT -- Consumption can cause excessive drinking & urinating, depression, neurologic hyperactivity, tremors & death. When necropsied, birds having consumed excessive amounts of salt show a great deal of fluid buildup in the brain & hemorrhaging. Mushrooms, garlic, Mistletoe, tobacco, batteries, some coins, mirror backing, foil, are some other examples or bird poisons. We will cover toxic plants & heavy metal next. Here's hoping BC is back to normal. I suspected that there was a problem, coz at 6pm yesterday, I hadn't received any blogs. When I got on BC this morning, there was blogs there from yesterday...strange! This is the first time I didn't have a bog that I can't blame mom! I hope u had a good day & I'll see u tomorrow!
Love & a vote
Tia
