Responded to an ad from a lady who had no time for her any more (all too common of an excuse in my opinion)...she came with a cage I wouldn't even put a cockatiel in with nothing more than a cow bell to play with.. Awards

  Hi Oogie!
Thanks for coming by and visiting me again. My mom is awaiting my arrival very soon but in the mean time she gets to go to the birdfair and stockup on me loads of toys to keep me busy when she isn't around which when she is cooking or other things around the house I might be by myself playing hard. My Mom plans to take me back and forth to work with her so I will never be alone.

Come back and vist me soon, heres a vote back at ya :)

  Hi Oogie
Thank you for flying by to see me! Mom says that was very nice of you, she also says you are such a pretty bird! By the look of your pictures it looks like you to have a great family that want to provide you with the best love and toys that they can. Thank for the vote and we gave you one back! Come by and see me again soon as mom will post more pictures as I grow.

Come visit me, Beamer & Hokie.

Yes, it can take time to get used to toys if you haven't had the opportunity to play before. I'm sure your pet human will teach you! Chewing on forbidden things is the best! I can't tell you how many tupperware lids I have ruined by using my beak like a can opener! I only go for the expensive plastic! hee hee hee! Mom has several videos of us birds posted on BC so check 'em out if you would like to get a better look at us in action! Squawk with you again!

Hugs and snugs!

Come visit me, Apples.

Hi Oogie, Artie here. Thanks for stopping by my page and saying hello. I'm glad I have a kindred soul who was saved by a caring human. Isn't being a Goffins great? We have such high spirits. Yeah, medicine is a drag. I'm on blood pressure meds that I take twice a day. Mom made some molasses cookies (with low sugar, fat, and salt - not too palatable to those humans) that I love. She puts the meds on a piece and I'm in heaven! I have some housemate parrots that Mom'll post pages on in the future. I hope you come and visit them, too. They're kinda cool, even if they're not cockatoos! :)

My name is Pearl and I am a Goffin as well. Glad you are in a better place with a bigger cage and lots of toys. Drop by and say hello to the flock sometime. Leaving you a vote, Pearl.

  Yes that is definitely too common an excuse to get rid of a bird. I see it all the time. most of my birds were adopted. Oogie is very cute <3 Here's a vote!

Come visit me, Siena, Chicken, Chloe, Max (RIP Poor little guy!!) & Donovan, Kato, Trooper, Benny, Oliver & Solo.

  Hello Oogie!
Welcome to BC! We're so glad that you got a wonderful forever home! Sorry to hear about your sad start though. Unfortunately the 'I don't have enough time' syndrome seems to be very common with birds.... We hope that you have as much fun on BC as we do and that you make lots of friends here! By the way, that is a beautiful picture! Here's your first vote! Fly by and visit our flock anytime as we love the company!

Hugs and Snugs,
