Hi! My name is Pookie says Happy Easter ! :)

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Pearl City, HI.

Pookie Pot Pie, Pookums, Pook, Pooooooooookie, Hey You!

4 years old   M

Green-Cheeked Conure

Fresh Papaya, Mango, grapes, Raw Peanuts, pumpkin and papaya chews, and all SUNFLOWER SEEDS!!!!

Nowadays since its cold, i've been hanging out in mom's shirt cause its nice and warm and cozy in there. :)

I think i'm a teenager now. I don't like loud noises or stink and strange people and my vet said that I can't have seeds everyday cause its not good for me. :( And when i'm on mom and don't want to come down till i'm ready to go down! :( Cause i'm a spoiled birdy!

she gives me love and lots of fruits and treats and stuff to play with and spoils me rotten :)

I also took a DNA test on Friday to see if i'm a boy birdy or a girl birdy. We'll know in 10 days. :) I think we'll get the results by February 14th, 2010 Valentine's Day.
GUESS WHAT EVERYONE, I'M A BOYEEEE!!!!! MY DNA TEST CAME BACK TODAY FEBRUARY 17, 2010!!! HEHEHEHHEHE :) HAPPY HAPPY, JOY JOY!!!!

Also, my mom reminds me to say my birdy prayers every night before I go to sleep. And it goes something like this: Dear God, I thank you for my mommy and daddy and all of my birdy friends here on the BCC and every where else. Please bless all my birdy friends and especially to those who just came out of surgery and are recooperating. Please bless those young and old birdies who are ill or are not feeling well, as you are the great physician in the sky and can heal all. I pray that you cover all us birdies with your shield of armor to protect us from any disease or illness or harm that may come our way. I thank you from the bottom of my little birdy heart, Amen. :)


I think i'm in puberty my hormonies are running a muck! I don't like daddy when i'm on mommy and I try to bite him and I lunge!! I dunno why? PUBERTY !!!!.

Pook Pook Pookie! Ma! Ma! Ma! What U doing??? Pookie go botcha! What U doing?? Pookpook Pookie Pookie Pookie, where's Daddy? Where did you go?.

  Hi Pookie & Laka Aolani
Would you like a derby hat like mine? I would be more than happy to have my Mom get you one!
Happy Easter back to you! That is a bummer that your sweet Mama had to sleep because she had to go to work!Did you get to have any kind of good food when she came home? I would be glad to send you over some anise biscotti and Queens biscuits and even some Pumpkin Pie for my Pookie Pot Pie! Oh that was good you got to play on Mom for a while!What more fun could a little birdie have?I love doing that too!
Mom got home late today because she was trying to help Nana with some plumbing work in her bathroom!Mom couldn't get the shut off thingie to move so she could shut the water off from the faucet!She tried WD40 and that rubber thing to hold things from slipping and nothing,then they went to the hardware store with the faucet nozzle thing to see if they could get a washer but the man there said she would have to shut the water off to the whole house and take the knobs off that you put the water on with and take them apart,what a mess!The man from the hardware store is going to come on Thursday to help Nana.Plumbing is a nightmare!
Mom is going to take some pics for your sweet Mom again tomorrow for the secret bear project!Do you know she went to look for more of the heat pads and no one had anymore of them? Mom has one left she was going to stock up so she would be ready just in case!Mom went to three or four different places and no one had anymore of them!As soon as you find out you gotta let me know!I'm really interested in what its all about!Now if only I can get Mom to stay home with me and not run out like she's been doing!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,Dixie and Flock and Mom too!

  Hi Pookie & Laka Aolani
I'm flying by to wish you a Happy Easter a little bit late with all the things my Mom had to do these past several weeks! This was the first day Mom got to stay home with us and we were so happy to have here home,but now she is going out again tomorrow to get some ammonia to get a big fat rat that has been terrorizing our yard and digging up all kinds of holes and just won't leave!Mom has got mouse poison and all kinds of other things for getting rid of rodents and it seems like nothing is working,he must be super rat or something!Did you have a good Easter with your sweet Mama and Papa? I got to go to Nana's house with my baby fister Candida and we got to see our other cousin Carmie who looks like me and you but he's a pineapple version of us!He and Candida got along really well together,they were talking words back and forth to each other!At least it was a bright sunny day here eggcept it was cold with that breeze that we had going here it got up to 61 but you'd never know it!

  Hello Pookie~
I hope you are having the most wonderful Easter ever! Things got busy around here so I have to keep it short today!
We are cooking a ham but we are not really going to have a sit down dinner since mom and Ian are working. Dad is in Montana somewhere! Everyone will eat when they can!

Mom finally got herself an MP3 player. Her's broke months ago and she just can't stand the "Leisure Suit Larry Lounge" music anymore! She found all the music files and started loading songs on the MP3 but when she looked, the songs were not there! It took my genius mom about half and hour to realize that Jennifer (the skin sisiter) had her MP3 player plugged in also so mom put all that music on Jennifer's MP3 player! Boy is she going to be surprised!hahahahahahaha Mom is such a dork!!

Happy Easter!!

  Hello Pookie~
I hope you are all having a wonderful day! I'm enjoying a bit of apple right now and trying to catch up on my notes! I never did finish yesterday because mom went to sleep!
We totally understand that your mom will be catching up on sleep this weekend. Working nights makes you feel like you never get any sleep!
We are glad to hear that the vertigo is gone. Make sure your mom goes back if it shows up again. It can make you feel so awful!
Mom and the skin brother both work on Easter so we have no idea if we are going to find the time to have dinner all together. Mom figures she will just cook some food and everyone can grab a meal when they can! We will have to pick another day to celebrate together!
I hope you all enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug for you all!

Last night, there was music and refreshments, just a time of fellowship for all of us to get to know one another better. Refreshments will be served all day today as well.

Tonight, we are going to see the movie Rio 2. There will be fresh popcorn and drinks for everybirdie.

I hope you are having a great day! Absolutely nothing of interest going on in my world but I did want to come by and say hello!
We have been doing more spring cleaning this week and it's really not very exciting at all!! Mom scrubbed the sliding glass door and the screen! It's so bright and pretty and I have an excellent view of the flags out in front of the complex! It's always windy around here so they are always flapping! They have red tulips on the flags and I enjoy watching them wave in the wind!
I hope you are enjoying your day and that window cleaning is not the most exciting thing going on in your life! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  Lifespan of a Diamond Dove
The lifespan of the diamond dove is different in captivity than if living in the wild.

In captivity, the diamond dove usually lives about 12-15 years. With proper care, they can even live into their 20's.

In the wild, however, diamond doves only live 3-5 years.

  Vocalization
Doves are relatively quiet birds. They make a variety of soft, low-pinched cooing sounds. Their cooing, however, may be persistent and repetitive. Many people find the cooing very pleasant.

  Supplements
Your dove should be given a vitamin/mineral supplement to assure you are providing all the nutrients it needs, especially if it is a finicky eater.

Note: Although the directions may tell you to put the vitamins in water, this is not good to do. Vitamins can settle to the bottom or lose its potency. It is best to put the supplement on soft foods or moist fruits or vegetables.

In addition to a vitamin/mineral supplement, doves need a small amount of grit. Unlike most birds, doves swallow their seeds whole and grit helps to digest them.

There are two kinds of grit:

Indigestible grit, which is sand or bits of ground rock. However, if your bird overeats this, it can become sick.

Digestible grit such as oyster shell, ground cuttlebone, or crushed eggshells pass safely through their system and is also a good source of calcium.

  A Healthy Diet (Continued)
PROTEIN

In addition to fruits and vegetables, you need to include protein in your dove's diet.

Insects are a good source of protein, although they are not necessary for your dove. You can either give them live insects or dried ones.

Another good source of protein are chopped hard-boiled eggs. This is important for breeding doves that are raising chicks. Crushed egg shells mixed in with the egg will provide calcium with the protein. Note: Eggs must be cooked thoroughly. Your bird can become sick from partially or uncooked eggs.

You can also give your dove tiny bits of thoroughly cooked meat or bits of cheese. However, this should be given only rarely and as a special treat.

  Hi Pookie
It's Ginger.
Yesterday mom and dad drove to downtown Los Angeles to see the musical "Harmony". It's based on the true story of a Germen Singing group who survived from the 1920s into the late 30s in Nazi Germany. Mom and dad really liked it. Then they had dinner at a seafood restaurant. We all took a vote and demanded that they both stay home today. "NO LOCKDOWN TODAY!"
We will not be blogging this weekend. Dad has a self defense class on both Saturday and Sunday so he'll be off line. We'll all be back on Monday, provided that dad doesn't shoot his foot off.
Hope your day and weekend is good. See you on Monday.
Hugs,
Ginger

  A Healthy Diet
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

Although all common pet doves are in the seed-eaters group, there are additional foods that can be a part their diet.

Seed-eating doves cannot tolerate large amounts of high-water-content foods. However, a daily treat of fresh food is fine for most doves.

Fruits and vegetables are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. When choosing produce, (one's that are safe for birds) bright colors are the healthiest choice. Example: sweet potatoes are more nutritious than white potatoes, red peppers have more vitamins than green peppers, and red grapes are higher in antioxidants than green grapes. Dark leafy green vegetables are also nutritious.

Some of the most favorite foods of the dove include:
shredded greens, grated carrots, finely chopped broccoli florets, diced apple, berries, fresh corn and peas. Your dove may not like all these foods, but as you experiment with differents ones, you will find that they may be some of their favorites.

  Hi Pookie!
It is getting hot here! I love it! I got to go to the park and craft store the other day, I always love that! Most of the workers at the Michaels know me and mommy, but there was one guy there that we hadn't seen before (he must have been new). When he saw me, he stared at me and got this surprised look on his face. He then walked away, but we could here him say into his little walky talky thing, "There is a BIRD in the store!" in the most confused and concerned voice! Mommy had to try so hard not to die of laughter! I'm guessing the person on the other end of the device said it was okay, because he didn't come back to tell us otherwise! :P You guys will NEVER guess what happened yesterday! Last night, mommy was watching the new episode of Agents of Shield. During the new episodes, the cast usually tweets live on Twitter. Mommy will usually send a bunch of tweets to the cast, but never really ever thought anyone would notice her. Last night, mommy tweeted: "@clarkgregg Will today be the that Agent Coulson says hi to me?" , and then continued to watch the show. After a minute or two, she looked through her feed on her Twitter app (on her Ipod), and a 1 popped up next to the notification bell, and so did a popup that said: "Clark Gregg replied to your tweet". Mommy couldn't even read what he said before she started totally FREAKING OUT. He had said only one word, which was "Yes!", but that was enough to make her have a FULLY FLEDGED FANGIRL ATTACK. She was crying and shaking so hard. When she tried to tell her sister she ended up just shoving her Ipod in her face while making unhuman noises. After a bit she calmed down, but was still super duper thrilled. My mommy is so weird! Anyway, she is still so happy today, and according to her, she probably will be forever. LOL! Hugs, Peatree

  Doves As Pets
SETTING UP YOUR DOVE'S CAGE

Doves, like other pet birds, need a variety of perches to keep their feet exercised and comfortable. However, they do spend much of their time on the bottom of the cage, as I had mentioned in yesterday's blog. You can remove the wire tray at the bottom of the cage so your dove can walk comfortably. Besides your dove walking on the bottom and pecking for food, they spend a lot of time sitting at the bottom as well.

Doves also enjoy sitting in a nest. You will need to purchase a canary nest or you can make one of your own.

You will not need to purchase anything for your dove to play with. Doves do not play with toys or on a playgym.

  Doves As Pets
PURCHASING A CAGE

When purchasing a cage for a single or pair of ringneck or diamond doves, the measurements of the cage should be at least 24 inches in length, 16 inches wide and 18-24 inches in height.

Unlike parrots, doves do not climb, so the length of the cage is more important than the height.

However, doves do need to room to flap their wings and fly. They also spend a lot of time walking around on the bottom of the cage, so the bigger the cage, the better.

  Hello Pookie~
I hope you are having a great day!! Is your mom getting enough sleep with these hours?? Mom never does unless she is off!

The store mom works at is called Fred Meyer. It's only in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Alaska. They are owned by Kroger who has stores all over the place! I don't think there are any Kroger store in Hawaii but I might be wrong!

Enjoy the day buddy!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar
