  Ç°> Hi George
Sorry it taken soooo long to get back in touch with you. With the internet down a couple of days, My Daddy working long hrs and not feeling his best. I have not been able to get on the computer to blog you back. Today Daddy say I could use the computer so I can give you a hollar. I will update you on what has happen over the last week. We got our Christmas tree up ( I am not too sure I like it) Daddy uploaded some more pictures on my page. One of my furry bro is not feeling good and went to the doc but could not find anything wrong. He still not doing good so he has to go to the doc. I got some good play time with daddy on the couch at lest until I bit him because he wouldn’t do what I wanted him to do. Of course that got me a timeout. Daddy and Mommy when to a bird rescue yesterday to see what they would be getting into if they adopt a Blue and Gold Macaw. Daddy fall in love with a little Indian Ring Neck. It came over to him to get scritchs. All the time he was being scritchs, he sang to daddy. I told Daddy that he could LOOK but not BRING home another daddy’s baby. I am the only Daddy’s baby allowed in this house. Now mommy can get all the baby’s she wants. Well Time to chase the votely thing off of your page. LOBH (Lots of Birdie Hugs) Ç°> Leah

I love your name. I'm also an african ringneck. I see there aren't very many of us on here so we must be pretty special. You are quite a handsome guy and look like my boyfriend Ringo, but he's Indian ringneck. I really love the pictures of you taking a bath. I love baths too
Come visit me sometime.

  Hi, George!
Sounds like you have plenty of rain! We haven't had any since last month, so it's still too dry out here. Gulf Breeze is a beautiful spot-- mommy remembers the commute across the bridge to Pensacola. You are in a really neat place--even though it is a bit soggy right now. You watch out for those tornados and hurricanes! They can really mess up a nest! Thanks for flying by! V2u and ciao for now!

We actually had our first rain in MONTHS last night! It was so exciting. We haven't had real rainstorms for a couple of years-- I suppose a bunch of billion dollar homes will slide a couple of inches, but boy, it was nice to hear the splat - splat of the drops on the window pane! My mommy has been through one hurricane and one TS, but has seen the damage from many others and still marvels at the power of these storms. Enjoy the sound and wonder and stay safe! V2U and ciao for now!

  I'll try to get mommy to fly by that parrot flock. Her small human is beginning to complain that she hogs the 'puter in the morning for all of the bird-speak, so I'm not sure she'll get away with it, but we'll give it a try. I'm happy you flew by--it's just been too long! V2u and Ciao for now~!

Oh my goodness, your mom has her hands full! My mom has nothing to complain about in comparison-- but that won't stop her, I'm sure. hee, hee. I just love looking at you-- your coloring is so perfect. I really miss our friend Louie--She looked much like you and was a bit of a plucker, but she was sooooo sweet and lovey! Your feathers just always look so perfect. I always look a little ruffley, but that's just me. I'm happy this way and mommy still loves me. --not so sure about daddy, though. I bit him this evening and now he's pouting. We'll just have to work it out. Tell your mommy to hang in there and give her some extra birdie snuggles from me! V2U and ciao for now!

  Hi George
Still biting, are you? I do at times, but not so bad because...mom mixes up some handfeeding formula with a little peanut butter and my supplements and gives it to me with an eyedropper, and I love it!!! I get all excited when she comes to give me my treats. You should try it sometime. I have learned that my new mom is not my enemy. Us Ringnecks can be tame on our own terms for sure, but I have really come around. Maybe a way to a bird's heart is through the gizzard~~Hollie

  Hi George
I have only been at my new home for about a month, and I do bite sometimes...well, daily if you want to know the truth. I do the Bite, Bite...oh finger..,step up routine. I do step up. Maybe they can get you to bite a target stick, then you may not have to bite fingers. I also get Pluck no More by Kings Cages, and it does calm me down some...and I have LOTS of new feathers. You sure are gorgeous. I hope to have nice feathers like you someday. I hope that you learn to trust your new owners. It sounds like biradise there~~Hollie

  George, my friend...
Are things getting better with the gloves? I'm sure you've tried this out, but my mommy also had great success with a "step up stick" at the very beginning. She still has the ole' stick around for friends and guests who want to get up close and personal without risk of beak-i-ness. I hope you grow to really enjoy your new flock. It is really wonderful to be with people who love you.

  Hello George!
I saw one of your notes talking about gloves.... My mommy had to wear gloves with me for the first 9 months. I still left her with permanent scars on one arm and hand, but the gloves did help--and they didn't frighten me any more than anything else did. She used brown cotton garden gloves that she could wash. They didn't eliminate the bruising and crushing, but they did stop the scarring. After 9 months of daily work, I finally realized that these humans love me and would not be mean like every other human I had met. Now I am a very happy and well adjusted feather friend and no one in the family needs gloves. Fear not. There's hope. I'm happy you have found a loving home! V2U. :)

i am still getting use to being in this bigger cage and all the activity. my mom and dad come in and sit in a chair beside me and talk to me. i am a bitter right now but they are working on helping me get over this. the lady that had me before hadn't taken me out of my cage for several years so i am not use to hands. you can kiss my head thur the cage but no hands. mom has quite a few bites to show her i am not a hand kind of man. she is still working with me and that is wonderful. even when i bit her she didnt get mad all she said was oh george that hurt lets be a good boy. i am working on it. i got my first piece of apple today, WOW that was wonderful. i think she said a banana tomorrow. i wonder what that is? will just have to wait and see will get back to you on this.

  Hi from Chi-Chi
I know what you mean about big cages - I got a new one too - and it's awesome! I can stretch out and flap as much as I want. It's cool that you can make a squeaky toy sound - it sounds like you have a great home.
Take care and have a great day!

  good morning
I am happy you are your mommys special baby, it is nice to have someone who really loves you. The bigger cages are nice. Mine is so huge, I have been chewing my perch apart, playing with my toys, climbing up and down and of course I get very very loud at times. I am happy to hear about your family. We have four lovebirds, one is a mated pair, 2 cockatiels, one a friend gave my Mom a couple years ago,a quaker, 6 parakeets, 5 doves, but no partridge in a pear tree. Mom wants to plant one, she is in 4-H and one project is horticulture. Spring break is over now here. Mom had an Indian ring neck once, they gave it to her sister when they had to move but they said it was not as pretty as you are. I hope you have a great day.

  Hi George
Ringnecks are awsome I can't really have anymore birds at this point in my life but a bird like you would be on my list of dream birds. I held one a few weeks ago and loved him, such a cool bird. I am glad you have a good home. My Grandma is in her 80's also i and has a green cheek on here. She is in well enough health to pay lots of attention to Alex and i am so thankful for that because i think Alex keeps her going. Have fun getting use to your new home! Here's a vote for you!

George is the newest member to our flock. he is a 12yr old ring neck parakeet. he hasn't been handled for awhile so we are going to have to work on that but right now he is just getting use to being in a new place and a new cage with new people talking to him. i have been told he can say hello and George George. i dont know he makes some of the funniest sounds, one he sounds like a squeak toy and like a puppy whining. will keep you posted on our progress.
