Hi! My name is Congo

I am a Quaker from Everett, ON.

Little Green Chicken
Congo Bongo Boy

11 years old   M


I love brown bread

I love avicakes but not nutriberries

with my mom

anywhere on my cage, as long as the door is open

Bright orange clothes

not being allowed to attack the cats

I have lots of fun with my mom and when she is around and I get scared, she tells me it is okay and then I feel better.

I run at people with my beak open to intimidate them

I aim my bath water at the cats as I have my bath to get them all wet!

yelling at the top of my lungs when my mom gets home!

laughing hyterically

sticking my head in my food dish and talking

"Try to play games with everyone and everything that comes near my cage or me. If they don't understand the game, it's even funnier! :)".

Hi Congo, My Mommy and Daddy went away, too, but are finally back from ol' Mexico. Yahoo! Kristen, our bird sitter, was very good to us. She came over a lot, sometimes three times a day. Other days when she didn't have to be at college until late in the afternoon, she spent the whole day with us, reading to us from her assigned books. One of then was called "Frankenstiein". Boy, was that ever wierd! On days when she had class late, she came back to cover us up after class so we wouldn't have to go to bed early. She's SO nice to us, but she's NOT Mommy or Daddy. I finally started being nice to Kristen on Friday, just 2 days before Mommy came home. I just decided that she was better than no one. Finnegan was nice to her right from the start, but then he's not much of a judge of character. With me, one has to prove oneself. Beside, I really don't much like anyone but Mommy anyway. We got lots of out of the cage time. I guess we're lucky birdies to have such a nice sitter. Maybe next time I'll try being nicer to Kristen.

I see in your pics that you like watches, too. I LOVE to pull out Mommy's watch stem. You can't even imagine how many times she's been late because of that. She looksa at her watch and figures she has lots of time. Then, a little while later she looks at it again and...that's when she notices that I've done it AGAIN!! And whamo, she's late...again! It's really fun, don't you think? Next week Finnegan's running for BOTW. If you can, would you please come by everyday to vote for him starting on Sun. the 24th? Thanks for your friendship. Big Hugs from Lucy

Hi Congo,It's so good to hear from you. Your baby pic. You were cute. Bet you had a stocking on your cage. Daddy put some deco's around the room for me but he wouldn't put anything on my cage except one little stuffed santa. He knew I'd probably chew up anything He put on my cage. Santa birdie brought me some toy's and a playstand And for new years he brought me some sweet potato pie with pecans on top. Didn't take me very long to finish that off. He says he's never seen me finish anything off that fast. Not even hot and spicy nachos. hehehe. All in all everything went well here

I wish you a happy New Year. I wish you a Happy New Year. I wish you a Happy New year, good health and happiness, too! Sorry I haven't been the best correspondent lately. Lucy and I had a wonderful Christmas. We hope yours was as happy as ours. She and I each got a new toy that we absolutely love. That baby photo of you is adorable! In fact I love all your pics. You're very photogenic. I love my Mommy's watch, too, especially pulling out the stem when she's wearing it. She's never sure what time it is! LOL!

Guess what we did last night? Mommy and Daddy took Finny and me out for a little ride in the car (just in our subdivision), to see the pretty Christmas lights. Mommy told Daddy that they probably shouldn't tell anyone because if they aren't bird-people, other people will think they are looney!! LOL! Now why would anyone think that? I was kind of nervous because I really don't like to ride in the car at night even though Daddy drove real slow. Finny really liked it though. We looked at all the lights that Mommy pointed out to us. But after a while, I just crawled inside Mommy's jacket. Daddy thought we'd enjoy it because we seem to like looking outside at night at OUR Christmas lights on the front of our house. Well anyway, that was pretty exciting. Here's wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year filled with good health and happiness. I'm leaving another vote for you. From your friend, Lucy

Hey Everyone!

Mom just decorated my cage today for Christmas!!

I have green and red wooden lights, I have a candy cane shaped toy, a long stick with red and green maple leafs on it, and a little penguin pinata (I LOVE him...I have been chewing on him all day!!)

ALSO!!!! My mommy is soooooo proud of me today....when she was talking to me about my Christmas decorations, I said "Christmas" She told me I was a good boy forever! I love it when she is so excited and tells me I am good....and so smart (I also tell myself these things all the time, especially when people are trying to watch tv in the room with me ;) )

Come visit me, Congo.

  Hello Congo
My favorite game is the woof whistle game. I whistle one part and I expect someone to whistle the other part.or the other way around. LOL And sometimes I do a whistle to see if someone can do it too. and then I give off a loud whistle and noone can do it and I am happy because I did one the best. But I always expect someone to answer my calls.I like to know when mama is near. Well come and see me sometimes. Here is a vote for you. TTYL

Hello Congo and Welcome to the BC! Thank you for the compliments. What a cute baby pic! Yes, I love to play games, too. Guess what my favorite is? Peeky-boo! Just like you! In fact, I like to play so much that when Mommy's folding clothes, I fly into the laundry room and hide under the towels, underwear, pillowcases, anything I can. Then when she makes the bed, I jump down on the bed and run under the sheets and hide. It's more like hide and seek because after I hide I get VERY still, put my head down with my face pressed against the bed, and wait for her to find me. If I'm not ready to be found, I still don't move when she lifts the sheet up. What she doesn't realize is that I'm still counting, and I haven't gotten to 100 yet!

About the wing clipping....First, I'm very sorry that the vet clipped too many of your flight feathers. When my Mommy had my wings trimmed, this is how she did it. (We go to the bird store where they clip my flight feathers.) The lady clipped the first two and then let me fly to my Mommy. since I could still fly really well., she clipped the next one. That didn't do too much either, so then she clipped the next one. Four seemed just about right. I could still fly, but not soar upward. Mommy doesn't want to immobilize me, or have me fall, she just wants to make sure that if I got outside (by accident), I couldn't fly away or up into the trees. Also it helps with a little attitude adjustment. Sometimes I get pretty spunky! So that's maybe the way you could do it next time. Quakers are very strong fliers and I'll bet that after you get used to that wing trim, in a few weeks you'll start trying to fly again. Last time the lady clipped my wing feathers one too many and I couldn't fly either for a few weeks, but you should see me now, after only one month. We have lots in common, I see from your bio, but that will have to wait for another visit. Hugs from your new friend, Little Lucy

Thanks for visiting. We're doing good. Mom and Dad still have not named my flockmate - a green checked conure. They found out she is a female, so they are narrowing down the names. It should be pretty soon. You are a very pretty Quaker. We look a lot alike. Happy Halloween! Beak hugs and kisses. Your friend, Jewels

  Hi Congo
Wow! It sounds like you are having fun with your new ring toss! I know this sounds funny but I don't really play with toys. Mom has loads of them around the house but I pretty much turn my nose up to them. I am too busy with Mom and Dad to have the time to play with toys. There are a couple things I do like to do. I love to untie knots in tennis shoes or the leather laces that Mom has tied to my cage. I also enjoy throwing things behind the couch like nail clippers. Anything that they will let me get my beak on! That is probably my favorite game. It annoys my Dad but Mom doesn't mind too much. I also have this thing about paper. Just about any kind I want to chew on. Mom doesn't like it when I chew on paper. She is afraid that I'm going to swallow it.

Here's a vote. Back to you, your friend. Jewels

  Hi Congo
Waddles here. Thanks for the compliment. Mum is definately planning on getting a quaker early next year. But first she has to earn some money when she starts a new job in november as her dad says if she wants it she has to pay for it herself. There is also a cage that needs to be bought for the new member of the flock so could take a bit of time and planning but she is looking forward to it. Here is another vote. Thanks for visiting and come back any time.

I pretty much ignore the dogs. They hang out for food. Other than that, I don't really have anything to do with them. Mom and Dad pretty much keeps them clear of me.

You saw my bath picture? I'm blushing...Oh I love to send it all around. I love to especially hit Mom's glasses with the water. There is no keeping them clean around me. I LOVE to take a bath with Mom. She lets me fluff up my feathers and flap my wings and squawk. It is so fun!! Then she sprays me with the water and I get all clean and beautiful. Oh what I wouldn't do for a good bath.

Back to you friend. Jewels.

  update on me
Hey Everyone,
So, my mom got my wings clipped at the vet's and when I got home I decided it would be a good idea to try to mom did her best to catch me but I fell on the floor (vet said she would cut less feathers next time but that I just needed to flap a little harder but wasn't expecting to have to). Anyway, I fell and my mom noticed my beak was bleeding so back I went to the vets. I cracked the very bottom of my the vet said I will be fine and my mom did a good job of stopping the bleeding....

but my beak is really sore and bruised right now. Mom feels awful but she is spending a lot of time playing with me since my toys are hard and I also get lots of soft food instead of pellets right now!!!!

Come visit me, Congo.
