Hi! My name is Dewey

I am a Quaker Mutation from Bunker, MO.

I'm a "pretty baby" and I know it.

7 years old   M

Quaker Mutation

I love about everything my owner shares w/ me

My play-gym above my cage and my owner's shoulder

I don't like people I don't know coming over to me and trying to talk to me. I also don't like when my owner's husband hoots at me to try to get me to imitate him.

I love getting kisses and scratches on my head from my owner

I have a lot of funny quirks and a BIG attitude!!!.

Give me kiss (followed by kissing noises).

  Hi friend
Haven't heard from you in a while - hope everything is good - I get worried when I don't hear from my friends in a while - mom says I should learn patience (whatever that is) because our humans sometimes get busy - but what could be more important than a quaker in the house ?

Mother Nature is playing tricks on us here in NY - well into the 60's the last two days - I was hoping mom would move my cage next to the window, where I usually spend spring, summer and fall, but nooooooooooooo - we're back into 40's and low 50's for the WHOLE next week - what a bummer =(

  Hi Dewey !
Guess what ? I, too, say "gimme kiss" accompanied by smacking sounds - sometimes though, I say "kiss the bird" (mom says I have a big attitude, too - but I think that's just being quaker)

You should put up more pictures when mom has a chance cause you sure are cute - you even look curious about the camera - I'm not crazy about having my picture taken, but they try anyway (sneaky humans !)

Sounds like you had a nice xmas with some toys and treats. I had bought Feather this plastic stocking and thats where the items came from. I took a picture of her plastic name tag and the other toys. I will post those pictures when i put it in my computer. I am waiting for her newest video to pop up that is a minute long of her getting out of her cage. It should show up tomarrow if you want to see that. IT should say Feather getting out of her cage or something. Anyways Feather just got 2 toys and the name plate and a cute chandelier and mirror and ladder. She seemed happy the last few days with them new toys. When i post the pictures i will let you know because the name tag will be in a picture.

  Merry xmas Dewey
Feather was flying around and couldnt forget about you. I bet your talking away today. Feather is excited that she got more toys. And she got a name plate for her cage that snaps write on and looks so cute. I got to get a picture of it maybe her standing by it. That 6 minute video i posted is called "My cute cockatiel". But i barely have that video out and i ended up quickly posting this other video of her escaping her cage again and its a cute close up and that one will probably post Monday. Well it will be hard to watch xmas go but i leave all my stuff up until mid January.

I posted a blog below this one But i forgot to answer your question about xmas. For xmas i believe family will be at our house. For xmas eve we will have family too but not sure if our house or a sisters house. Actually i am not afraid to say i am Catholic and love going to the midnight mass instead of the regular xmas masses the next day. Its fun to be up at that time and not have to worry about church the next day. haha. And family from out of town will be in too and thats always exciting.

Hi i am glad you stopped by because i ended up posted that video last night. It took a long long time for it to downloaded because its a spec over 6 minutes long. Actually i believe it was 6 minutes and not 7 minutes. haha. Anyways last night i had watched the video and it was so cute i went ahead and posted it online write away. So it should come out in a day or two. I believe i just called it "my cute cockatiel". Your parents are gonna want a cockatiel after they view this video. haha. It shows her running around in her cage. But one thing i dont have on the video is that sometimes she will run back and fourth on the bottom of her cage. And she has this big long perch she loves to run back and fourth on. But in the video she is running on her shorter perch. And then i like how i show her walking around in her cage on her perches and stuff. But my favorite part is when she lets out a big fiesty bossy hiss towards the end of the video to show me she is the boss of me too. And then there is fast forwards and rewind when viewing these videos. So a person and view her hiss again. I am glad i posted it. I just love her hiss at the end even tho i am so use to her hissing all the time at me because she is fiesty.

I am guessing that he will like the nutriberries because if he is eating some table scraps that tells me that he is not too fussy. So that will be great if he loves the nutriberries like Feather does. They are sapose to be healthy because they coat them with something. That sounds like a great idea to give your parents a cockatiel. Cockatiels are so jentle and affectionate. I have this cute 6 minute video of Feather i did weeks ago and i was afraid to post a video that long but i think i am thinking of posting it. Her hiss at the end of the video is so funny and cute. If i post it i will let you know but i am thinking i will.

Hello i am happy you saw her videos. Alot of people are saying she is so cute. I want to try to get some more of her on film because she is something else. She is standing on my arm stretching her wings. Its hard to get her fully on video because she stops when i come by with the camera. But i know i can get more of her like after xmas. I know write now is getting hettic. I am not done with xmas shopping. When you buy the nutriberries in January or sometime i am predicting he will like them. You might have to put them separate tho. Feather was ignoring them until i stuck them in a tiny separate bowl.

Did Dewey try her nutriberries yet? Feather is happy she just submitted a video from a year ago of how she escapes from her cage if the door is not latched. If you go to video so far she is on page 1. Yesterday she escaped when i was not home and that has never happend and so when i left this morning i made sure that door was latched.

Hi, I am glad i was able to introduce Dewey to the nutriberries. And again its best to put them in a separate little bowl because she will skip them if they are next to her other seeds. I am guessing he will like them. Well i just submitted two videos. They are at the bottom of page 1 on the videos page. The 2nd video i made a little too long 4 minutes. yikes. But I would be under Sheri T. Or my heading always mentions her being 14 yrs old.

  Hi Dewey
I have been ordering her nutriberries from FoodFoodDirect. Just type in the www. ect and its probably the same sight. They usually have them at petshops but what i get seems to be fresh. It looks like balls of seed. I bet Dewey would love them. I dont put them in Feathers regular bowl because she was skipping them. I stick them in a small bowl by their self and she walks up to the bowl and eats them because the other seed is not with them. So one trick would be to put them seperate in a small bowl or else he might ignore them. Speaking of liver disease the vet did a autopsy and it had something to do with the lungs like a infection or nemonia however you spell it. Her pour diet could have made her more prone to get sick. In the autopsy the doctor actually saw that she had the beginning of liver disease but thats not what she died from. I think this is gonna be a long long blog but one more thing i had really thought of this morning is that when you said Dewey will mimic yelling my cute memory flooded back to me that Kiwi use to actually mimic arguments or shouting into another room but she didnt do that everyday. What i mean is that sometimes a minute after argueing with my mother she would start shouting in a voice in her own language. I got a bang out of it feeling like she is mimicking a argument we had. haha. I remember thinking to myself haha she is mimicking my mother. She would also mimic talking because sometimes she would chatter in her own lauguage. But i will end by saying that if Dewey ends up liking nutriberries it will help greately especially since she may never learn to like pellets. You can give her some seed. Feather likes the tiny parakeet seed that they stick in the mix. I would give Dewey the cockatiel nutriberries because it comes in differenct sizes.

  Hi Dewey
That sounds cute that when the family is yelling from room to room Dewey starts yelling and jabbering too. I can kind of picture it because i know how those quakers can be with their yelling and jabbering in another language. The more i thought about it i am thinking he would love those nutriberries and it has nutrients on top and so he wouldnt know he is eating something good for him. Again Feather only eats about 3 a day of those which is all she wants because she already eats alot of the pellets and little seeds. I notice Feather has gotton pretty use to the camera. Sometimes i can come write up to her face and she wont do anything. She will stretch or eat or climb in front of the camera too. However if she is running and climbing in her cage and i walk up to her she stops. So i sneak the camera on her by propping it up on something and she wont know its on.

Welcome to BC. It's great to see another Quaker. Here is a V4U. Oh boy, you and I have lots in common. I don't like new people talking to me either, especially near my cage. Like all Quakers, I am pretty territorial about my cage. When I talk, I whisper. I say all the words and sentences when Mom is talking to me but I whisper. Mom says I am a very quiet Quaker. Dad and Mom cat call to me but I've given up the whistle along time ago. I don't know why they keep trying. I used to do this other whistle that Papa taught me but I quit doing that one too. Mom trys enticing me but I won't do it. I move my beak like the sound but no sound comes out. I think it irritates Mom, so I keep doing it. Hee hee. Fly by for a visit. Your new friends, Jewels and Boo Boo

Hi, he sure knows alot of words. I cant remember all that Kiwi knew but i think it was over 10. He also said "smart birdy" and "you poop". Probably one way to wean him on pellets is to get a seed with less sunflowers in it and maybe he will eye ball the pellets. Or do a trick like stick a bunch of pellets in front of him in his bowl. Another thing that would help him and his diet is to buy nutriberries. They look like balls of seed but they are coated with nutrients. They are so healthy they call it bird food but i only give Feather about 4 a day along with regular seed because she would be bored without her seed. So if you type in nutriberries online you would find them. Or you can find them in petshops. Actually my quakers ate regular cockatiel seed mix since they are only a bit bigger. Theres a few seed mixes out that dont have that much sunflower and saffflower in it and that would help him to go after the pellets maybe. Again nutriberries would help so greatly in his diet. I kept ordering a seed mix online that all of a sudden i cant find online so i buy the regular store kind at the grocery store that i actually like because it has the same pellets in it and hardly any sunflower in it. Well Feather is really cute. She likes to hiss like a snake. She likes to come out and fly to me. IF you go to the videos and type in "My 14 year old cockatiel" or go to page 3 i believe its on you could see her in action.

  Hello Dewey
I never knew if mine were female or male. But they are like the large birds packed into a small bird. And with how smart Kiwi was i felt like she was a female. haha. But again they have the cutest personalites. Some of the words she knew was hello, step up, get down. I would say get down jokingly if she flew onto the top of the door. So again i think about it on if i would ever get another one and the blue color would be cool because its like owning a large bird with how much they can talk. It was July of 2005 or 2006 she died. Like a lung infection or something like that. Actually i believe the reason my past two quakers only lived 4 years is because i realize i didnt have them on the best seed diet. There was too much sunflower and safflower seeds in their diet they were eating. And they didnt like the pellets. Of course they never knew each other because i bought one after the other one died. ITs been about 5 years since Kiwi died around July of 2005 or 2006. But now Feather has been with me long because i had changed her seed diet a while back to one that has hardly any sunflower and no safflower. And Feather LOVES the pellets and its the first thing she looks for. And also i have her on Nutriberries which is very healthy. But again those quakers sure have alot of personality. One thing that i always thought was cute was when Kiwi would walk upside down on her cage. My cockatiels couldnt do that.

  Hi Dewey
Glad you were able to see Feathers page. She feels like a movie star having all these people view her. She has a few videos out too. She is such a happy bird. Actually when her sisterd died that wasnt my first bird to die. I had a few cockatiels in the past too. Actually since you have a nice pretty quaker i should mentioned i had quakers in the past. Basically my first bird was a cockatiel. I use to own a quaker parrot several years ago who died only 4 years later. Then i bought another quaker parrot and this one was so tame and learned maybe about 15 words but 4 years later Kiwi suddenly wasnt her self and when i brought her to the vet she needed to stay over night and they called later saying she died. She was so cute and so i know alot how Deweys personality must be like. I know i will always own Cockatiels. If i ever get another kind too it would defiently be a quaker. Just dont know yet if i would want two big cages again. But they sure are cute. Loud too. haha but thats ok. So again i think Dewey in the blue color is really pretty and i know he has that cute quaker personality.
