We rescued Topaz from a family that had 5 macaws, and 25+ people living in the house, including children who would put broomsticks into his cage and hit him with them. He had just started plucking from the stress, but I think we've solved that problem with the positive attention. He had been fed a seed only budgie diet, raw hamburger meat, and nothing else but water. How these people thought that was the right way to take care of such a georgious bird is beyond me. He is now eating several different kinds of pellets, mixed together, with seeds and peanuts as a treat. he also gets fresh veggies etc. daily.. Awards

  Oh Topaz....
Please ping me with an email when your new brother or sister comes into the world. I'd love to see it. I bet they're really tiny if they're lovebirds! You'll also have to let me know if you get a 'too in your rescued flock. You sure have special moms rescuing like that! My mom loves to rescue too. Maybe it's a good thing she doesn't know where any of them are in MD! She always brings home something with issues. My dad says he's going to put a statue of liberty on our front lawn that says, "give me your poor, your lame, your blind....and I will give you shelter". Probably not far from the truth! Talk to you soon and good luck with the babies! Hugs, Buddy

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.

  Hi again Topaz
Thanks for dropping by to say "hi". I still have that dang e-collar on but my feathers are coming in nicely. I love when mom, my human sister or Clyde (my Umbrella brother) crack my straws and let the new feather come through. I can't reach them all with this stupid collar. Hope all is well at your end. I'm giving you another vote today! Birdie hugs, Buddy

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.

Come visit me, Baby Lily, Roscoe, Penelope, Xavier & Baby Kip.

  Hi Topaz
Thanks for visiting me...that was quick! Yes, my mom feeds me lots of different foods. I don't like them all, but I must admit, she tries! My favorite is these birdie muffins she makes me. She starts with a basic mix, adds fruit and also crushes my zupreem pellets in her "magic bullet" (that she bought from an info-mercial!) and puts that in there as well. They are just yumalicious! The vet seems to think that my plucking issues have become habitual. My dreaded e-collar is now staying on for awhile (boy I hate the vets!) mom says. :( I don't like my bath much either, but mom gave me another one again yesterday coz the weather was so beautiful. I prefer looking like pigpen, but mom won't hear of it. Well, that's all I know for today. I'm sending another vote your way. Talk to you soon. Birdie hugs, Buddy

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.

  Hi Topaz!
You're one beautiful bird! Where did your mom rescue you from? I'm a rescue too. My mom rescued me from an amusement park here in Ocean City. I used to have a "pirate" for a dad and I wasn't living in very good conditions. I have a brother who was rescued too. My mom really likes us rescue birds. Guess she figures it is a rewarding challenge. Us rescued birds really have it good here! Does your mom know of any local places (in MD) that do rescues? Guess that's it...welcome to the channel! I'm giving you your first vote today. Come visit me sometime! Birdie hugs, Buddy

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.
