Chelsea was in an abusive situation, then in a clueless foster home. She had been physically and emotionally abused (he beat her, and then she had also been thrown into a wall), fed an inadequate diet resulting in a serious Vit. A deficiency (raw, bloody mouth, for one). And left alone, with a bunch of dusty toys and no interaction until the people came home. Whenever they came home. The foster home didn't know much of birds, so were happy to give her to me when they found out that I had been working with birds for years, and had larger bird experience. I took her to the avian vet, had a full workup done on her, and started her on vit. A injections. Then worked with her on changing her diet. Creative ways of getting meds into her have helped a lot, too!.

Hi! My name is Chelsea

I am an Amazon from Tacoma area, WA.

Mom's not allowed to tell... I'm a Panama Amazon, and Mom tells me that I'm a real sweetheart (other people say this, too), that I'm beautiful, and smart.

20 years old   F

Amazon

Grapes, pizza crust, Orange Starfruit Herbal tea, anything with pasta... Everything that Mom is eating.

On Mom. Always. Unless someone I know has food...

My other spot is the dryer (stacked type). Mom keeps telling me that it is *not* a nest box...but I don't believe her!


Not getting to share *everything* that Mom eats. Strangers that think they need to touch me without my consent-or Mom's! How rude!

Mom doesn't keep me in a cage when she's home (which is a lot, because of medical reasons), and she gives me both toys and our own tv to keep us entertained during the day (I've 5 parrot "siblings"- Mickie, Willow, & Oak, Sweetie, & Rico). Mom takes me for car rides (safely in my travel crate), and for outdoor walks with her (because of the abuse, I cannot fly-but my wings are clipped anyway), even camping! And Mom shares her food with me, on my own section of the plate. And her (safe) beverages, too! I *love* going out in public, and talking to others, too!

Tom and Jerry cartoons have a baby duck...I talk *just* like that, sometimes! And I like to sing, "Bad bird, bad bird..." or "Happy birthday" sometimes.

I don't step forward onto a hand much of the time, as I prefer to step *backward*, instead!

Unfortunately, due to a previous abusive owner, I also have a gutter potty mouth when I get upset (ie: raising your voice, for any reason, will bring this out). We're working on that behavior...
.

"Fresh is *so* much better if Mom's eating it, too!".

  Hello from Tanga!
I hope you had a good day. My grandma birdy-sat me today and she made me a new toy with colorful popsicle sticks! I love it! I was really starting to get bored with my toys (mommy ordered me new ones...but it's taking a long time for them to get here). Tomorrow I have a vet date to get my my feathers trimmed and a pedicure. I hate it, but I cannot wait to go for a ride in the car! Well, it's time for me to go to bed, but I just wanted to stop by and say hello! I'll be peckin' the votie button off your page on my way out! See you soon! ~Tanga

Come visit me, Flash & Tanga.

  Hi!
I'm so glad that you finally found a loving home after all you've been through! Maybe you could ask your mom to visit my profile and give my mom advice on how to take me camping! You are so beautiful! You got my vote.

  Welcome Chelsea! I'm so happy you have a wonderful home now. Hope your meds are helping you a lot. It's amazing how little time people spare for us huh. My last owner didnt know a thing about what was good for me. And who knows how many owners I had before then or how old I am. So many people get us thinking we are neat, until they get us home and find out how much work we really are. But then there are wonderful people out there like our moms! A vote for you sweetie.

Come visit me, Chester.

  A Welcome for Sam and Sierra
Chelsea you have a beautiful name! We are so sorry to hear what you have had to go through to get to great home. Sierra didn't have the best of homes either, I believe that her owners didn't understand her, the lady of the house was aggressive with her, the husband didnt want Sierra and from the way Sierra talks and acts i can tell she was teased by the children in the house. She is getting to the point where she is saying some of the things she learned there less because i only respond to the positive things. I am glad sierras diet was okay...I really dont know much about vit but can chelsea get over that in time or is it something that will always have some effect on her?

Come visit me, Sierra & Sam.
