I comfort myself in knowing that he is now in perfect form and I will see him again one day. thank you for all the support and voted you have given him on this site. You have made his world a brigther place while he was here. God Bless

I went to a bird show and saw a Quaker breeder. In a cage by himself was this little baby that was crippled (his leg had gotten broke in the nesting box and set backwards pointing in a upwards postion). Of course I had to hold him and love on him lots. I could not get him out of my mind for the rest of the day so I visited that booth again just before leaving and made a deal with the owner to purchase him at a significantly reduced rate with no guarantees to his survival. He was 10 1/2 weeks at the time and I hand fed him (after getting a crash course in how to do so from the breeder) and he has been with us ever since. He does not know he is cripled and the only adjustment I have had to make in his cage is to give him a sleeping "platform" rather than a regular perch. Other than this, he is all over his cage and just as rambunctious as any Quaker.

Hi! My name is BB (Bilbo Baggins)

I am a Quaker from Klamath Falls, OR.

ToughBoy. ..Hop-Along-Cas- sidy.... Squawky...Noisy Bird

12 years old   M


Cheerios ONLY (I am a very finicky eater)

On his perching platform...or playing on the bottom of his cage with his balls.

Anyone coming near his is WWIII trying to get him out of his cage but once you do so, he settles down a lot.

She gives me baby scritches when she holds me and lets me chew on the keyboard now and then.

Loves to put his toy balls in his water dish..

  Our Deepest Sympathy
Here's a vote in little BB's memory. You gave a very sweet little bird a very happy life while he was here. I hope you'll get another quaker to help your heart to mend. After my little budgie, Bobbie, died 2 yrs. ago. I waited for a few months, then got a beautiful lutino cockatiel named Daisy. Then about 3 1/2 wks. ago we adopted a 4 mo. old blue quaker whom we've named Miss Lucy Blue. They are both wonderful little birds, who really helped my heart to heal. Daisy's and Lucy's Mommy

Come visit me, Finnegan - 5K...YIPPEE!! THANK YOU FRIENDS!, Daisy - R.I.P. - BOTW 9/17-9/23/07 & Miss Lucy Blue - FAREWELL TO MY BELOVED FRIENDS.

Thank you for visiting me. I will go and look at your little brother. I always like to meet cockatiel friends, as well as others of course. I like the picture of you on the bed. You look like a cuddly toy:) I am voting for you. Pringle

  Welcome to the BC
Hi Bilbo. So glad you got a nice home. You probably got a much bigger chance of surviving because of that good stroke of luck. We love your name and are big fans. Does your owner give you straws to make nests with?

Come visit me, Pepper, Poirot, Pringle & Artistic Avian Avatars.
