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 !!!!.

  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!

What a beautiful day we are having for our trip. Everybirdie is having such a good time. There is an activity planned for each night on the boat.

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.

  Hello Pookie~
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.

  Doves As Pets
DETERMINING THE GENDER OF THE IMMATURE DOVE

If you decide to purchase a pair of young doves, you may want to buy a male and female.
The only way to determine the gender of the immature dove would be to submit a blood sample for DNA analysis or have your vet examine them endoscopically.

The DNA sexing is simple and noninvasive. It is performed from a drop of blood from a clipped toenail or emerging blood feather.

Some pet stores can have this done for you or your vet can perform the test. You may want to have this done if you are interested in breeding your doves in the future.

  Hello Pookie~
I hope you are having a great day! It's very pretty here! A real spring day!
Mom was off last night and she'll be off again on Friday. She couldn't get two days off in a row this week because there is too much work. It's clearance week plus they added a special weekend ad. The store is having it's Fuschia event this weekend so there will be special sales to go along with it. It's an annual event and everyone looks forward to it. They have geranium and fuschia starts for sale and if you bring your own pot the garden staff will plant them for you. Hanging baskets are a big thing up here so by next week you will be seeing them everywhere.
I have spent the morning trying to keep Merlin away from mom! He had his outside on the balcony time and play with the ribbon time but he is trying to butt into my climb on mom time! I told him he needs to go grab a nap until I'm ready for my apple and then he can jump up on the computer desk again!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's a spectacular day! I hope mama Ruthie, Papa Pete and Laka are all well and happy!!

  Doves As Pets
INTRODUCTION

Doves are gentle birds that are hardy. They are quiet birds, have a peaceful nature, and don't require as much complicated care as other species of birds. This makes them a good pet for the beginner.
Diamond doves are even good pets for young children as long as an adult supervises the care.
Since doves are quiet birds, they are good to keep in apartments where you may not be able to keep a noisy parrot.

Doves can be kept as single pets or in pairs but they do better in pairs. If you keep a single dove be prepared to give it lots of attention and interaction.

"We found out that the feathers multiply. You need to act quick and pull out the blue feather and all the feathers around it so it won't spread. Can you handle that, Ginger?" Ginger looks out the door at Pookie and says, "I'll give it my best!"
Ginger walks out to the dining area and asks Pookie, "Pookie, is that a new wing watch. Can I see it?"

  HI TiPAUL
MOMS NOT DOING VERY WELL. THE HARDEST IS TRYING TO SLEEP AT NIGHT. THEN HER USUAL MORNING OF SNEEZING IS TAKING A TOLL. THE BATHROOM SINK BECAME CLOGGED AND HAD TO CALL A PLUMBER WHO CAME THIS MORNING. MOM HAD TO CLEAN THE BATHROOM BEFORE THE PLUMBER SAW IT. THEN SHE HAD TO CLEAN IT AFTER HE LEFT. THE PLUMBER KEPT TELLING MOM NOT TO KEEP BENDING DOWN. IT WASNT THE BENDING DOWN THAT GOT MOM BUT THE STANDING UP AFTERWARDS. ANYWAY AT LEAST ITS FIXED AND THE BATHROOM IS CLEAN. MOM JUST KEEPS TAKING TYLENOL. THE WHOE BACK THING STARTED WHEN DAD ASKED MOM TO CLEAN UP SOME LEAVES ON THE SIDE OF THE YARD ON MONDAY. MOM DID BUT THEN TRIPPED ON A LOG BURIED UNDER ALL THE LEAVES AND FLIPPED OVER THE HILLSIDE.

I WANT TO GIVE MY MOST SINCERE APOLOGIES FOR NOT GET BACK TO EVRYBIRDY SOONER. I HAVE BEEN READING MY BLOGS BUT SINCE I CANT TYPE I HAD TO WAIT FOR MOM. I AM THRILLED TO BE QUEEN. I DIDNT THINK I COULD WIN IT. OF COURSE I WON BECAUSE OF ALL MY DEAR FRIENDS SUPPORT. BOO BOO WORKED HER LITTLE TAIL FEATHERS OFF HELPING ME AND WAS ECSTATIC OVER WINNING BOTD TODAY. PADDY AND PIDDY WERE OVER JOYED TO GET TO COME TO THE CASTE WITH US AND HAVE BEEN DANCING THE DAYS AWAY. WE ARE THOROUGHLY ENJOYING OUR TIME AT THE CASTLE AND EXTEND AN OPEN INVITIATION TO EVERYBIRDY TO COME AND JOIN US ANYTIME AND STAY AS LONG AS THEY WANT. ITS ON ME. WE ARE ALSO HAVING THE BEST TIME PLAYING WITH THE DRAGON THAT LIVES IN THE CASTLE MOAT. DID YOU KNOW HE LIKES TO EAT CARMEL CORN?

LOVE CORI

"Popeye had to go to her office for a while. They don't have Kim Chee here at the pie shop. Popeye will stop and pick us some. How come you want Kim Chee, all of a sudden?
Pookie says...........

Things seem to be settling down here. Between this time yesterday and today there was only one aftershock. There could still be more. They could go on for months. But at least their small and we don't feel them.
Yesterday mom worked at the police station while dad securing the cabinet doors and bolted the curio cabinet to the wall. Today both mom and dad work at the police station so we'll be in lockdown all day.
Hope your day is good.
Hugs,
Ginger

  Hi Pookie!
Our goodies from My Safe Bird Store arrived last week! There is a picture of everything in my gallery. All of us were super happy with everything mommy picked out for us! My favorites were a fun foraging toy and yummy birdie bread. Jester really like his toys and treats too. Guess what!? Mommy's website is up! She is still tweaking it, but if you want to check it out go to MadalynC.com She wants to know if anyone thinks she should change or add anything. Speaking of art, I shredded mommy's favorite feather painting last night. She was really mad at me. ): It was the one of a preening blue and gold macaw that she was really proud of. I didn't mean to destroy it! I thought I was just preening it! Hugs, Peatree

  Hi Pookie
You. Laka, and Sally have neat Easter pics, they all look great.
Thank you for helping me celebrate my day of fame today. There will be a party in the never ending party room in the castle all day long, come on by for a snack, a drink, and some fun. Cori and I will see you there.
Well, the news about Polly is fantastic, mom thinks. First of all, she walked from the car to the house yesterday, which she didn't do after the first surgery. Then twice, when mom took her outside yesterday, she walked to the curb, once even from the back door. She ate last night, and again this morning with gusto. Mom thinks this one will be a faster recovery, she's already touching down with her toe.
This morning mom cleaned after the new baby great horned owl, so she had to wear the ghillie suit. It's a jacket and hood with cut out leaves fluttering all over it, and the head piece has mesh over the face with the leaves on it, too. It's a little hard to see from, but it beats the 'ghost suit' sheet that mom wore last year. It's lighter and easier to maneuver in. She also cleaned the main aviary and the RVS room today. The baby bats seem to be okay, and the ground hogs are doing well, even the one that got hit twice by cars. The poor little raccoon didn't make it though. He was too badly injured.
That's all the news for today, don't forget to come to the castle for the PARTY! Hugs, Falco

  Hey Pookie
It's Ginger.
Things are improving. Yesterday aftershocks only totaled seven and only three of them were over night. Mom and dad didn't feel any of the ones over night.
We had more rain overnight, too. It totaled 0.18 inches.
Yesterday, mom and dad went to the movies and saw The Monuments Men. It was a great movie. And last night was dad's monthly police meeting. The department bought pizza for all the patrol volunteers and they talked about emergency procedures for the volunteers. Today mom will work at the police station and dad will, well I really don't know what dad will do.
Hope your day is good. Why do you still want Kim Chee.
Hugs,
Ginger

  Vote Chipper for BOTM,
For those of you who don't know me, my name is Chipper and I am a diamond dove. I will be running in April for the BOTM in May. Since we are not your typical parrot-type pet, I will be sharing with you each day, in a brief blog, some interesting facts on doves.

Your votes are appreciated. Thanking you in advance for your support and leaving a vote too!

Your friend,
Chipper

Come visit me, Chipper.
