Since I only had a bonded bonded pair of budgies, I wanted a bigger bird that would bond with me and be my friend. My parents told me I could get a bigger bird when I turned 13 (I was 10 at the time), but after begging, they told me I could get a conure and they would pay for half of her as my Christmas present. So I started searching on craigslist and petfinder. After a while, I found an ad for a pineapple green cheek conure. I remembered playing with one of those at the pet store, and how sweet he was. So I had my mom email the lady. After chatting for a while and trying to talk down the price, my parents said we could get her as long as she looked healthy when they went to pick her up. A few days later, they went to pick her up and she was healthy. I fell in love with her when I saw her. Now we are best friends!

Her Hatchday is June 21st 2008.

Hi! My name is Princess Peatree - Thank you for BOTD!!! (:

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Clermont, FL.

My name was Peatree when mommy got me. When she first got me, she didn't like that name at all and wanted to change it to Abigail. But I could say Peatree and looked at you when you said Peatree. Mommy likes my name now.

My full name is Peatree Abbigail. Yes, two B's!

I have A LOT of nicknames! :D Peachy, Peach, Pea, Baby, Baby Girl, Shnuggy, Baby Doll, Peachy Abby Gailey, Sweetie, Sweetheart.


5 years old   F

Green-Cheeked Conure

I love sunflower seeds, cashews, ice cream, lolly pops, bananas, parakeet seeds, black berries, raspberries, and peanut butter.

With mommy, with grandma, on top of my cage, and in the living room on my T-Stand, and the shower.

Bellatrix and Hermione, when people touch my tail, and when mommy forgets to uncover my cage right when she wakes up.

She got me from my old owner who left me in my cage and never took me out and played with me. She loves me soooooo much, and I love her back ♥

If mommy doesn't uncover me within 5 minutes of her waking up, I'll yell and ring my bells..

I am in charge!

  We are now leaving...
for our trip. We will be traveling for the next few days!

*There were so many birdies that signed up so late that we need to take two ships. There will be two pictures shown of our ships. If you signed up and your picture is not on the first ship, look on the profile tomorrow night or Thursday. All birdies that signed up are included on this trip. I am very happy to have so many of my BC friends joining me on this adventure.

Did you know that there are over 300 species in the dove family?

  Hi ya Peatree~
I hope you are having a great day! Absolutely nothing of interest going on in my world but I did want to come by and say hello!
We have been doing more spring cleaning this week and it's really not very exciting at all!! Mom scrubbed the sliding glass door and the screen! It's so bright and pretty and I have an excellent view of the flags out in front of the complex! It's always windy around here so they are always flapping! They have red tulips on the flags and I enjoy watching them wave in the wind!
Did your mom see Divergent? Mom hasn't read those books yet. She is on the 3rd book of the Mortal Instruments so she'll start the Divergent series when she is done. She didn't see the movie yet but she will when it comes out on DVD!
I hope you are enjoying your day and that window cleaning is not the most exciting thing going on in your life! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  Hello Peatree!
Here is a message from my mommy: "THAT IS SOOOO EPICALLY AWESOMMMMEEE!!!!".
Mommy is a hard-core Marvel fan and reads the original Amazing Spider-man comics. In fact, she is wearing a Marvel shirt today, and also she is going to see Captain America the Winter Soldier today. But she's not allowed to watch Agents of Shield.
How did they let mommy bring you into that craft store?

  Lifespan of a Diamond Dove
The lifespan of the diamond dove is different in captivity than if living in the wild.

In captivity, the diamond dove usually lives about 12-15 years. With proper care, they can even live into their 20's.

In the wild, however, diamond doves only live 3-5 years.

  Vocalization
Doves are relatively quiet birds. They make a variety of soft, low-pinched cooing sounds. Their cooing, however, may be persistent and repetitive. Many people find the cooing very pleasant.

It was just a cold and rainy day today.

  Hi Peatree
That was great you won two days in a row!! So happy for you. Your mom will probably get the feathers next week one day and be waiting to make sure they are ok to use too.
After mom gets done with dinner dishes she cleans my condo and gives me all fresh foods and water and then mom sits on the one end of the couch and I sit on the back. Sometimes mom reads or will look at her email and I relax. Well tonight dad had the nerve to sit in moms seat on the couch just as she was finishing up in the kitchen. I flew over and beaked him and then I yelled at him too. I guess he understood cause by the time mom was ready to sits he left and went in his own chair. I sat with mom like nothing at all had happened LOL. “Happiness is when we realize how blessed we are for what we have.” Leaving a vote for you my friend~ Gus. (RIP Chi chi)

  Supplements
Your dove should be given a vitamin/mineral supplement to assure you are providing all the nutrients it needs, especially if it is a finicky eater.

Note: Although the directions may tell you to put the vitamins in water, this is not good to do. Vitamins can settle to the bottom or lose its potency. It is best to put the supplement on soft foods or moist fruits or vegetables.

In addition to a vitamin/mineral supplement, doves need a small amount of grit. Unlike most birds, doves swallow their seeds whole and grit helps to digest them.

There are two kinds of grit:

Indigestible grit, which is sand or bits of ground rock. However, if your bird overeats this, it can become sick.

Digestible grit such as oyster shell, ground cuttlebone, or crushed eggshells pass safely through their system and is also a good source of calcium.

  Hi Peatree
Mom thought she was right on the age. YOur royal portrait looks so pretty!
Want to hear something strange? Mom has an event to attend today with one of the education animals. She kind of knows where the place is, north of here, off the turnpike on a major highway. She isn't sure which exit to take, so she checked MapQuest for directions. This is a rather large shopping center and very upscale, so you'd think it was easy, right? Wrong! MapQuest said they couldn't find it, and try to revise the search. Well, I think she'll end up taking the wrong exit, because last time she went there, that's what she did. It takes her to US19, but too far south. She can suck it up and drive on that road though.
This is an Easter Egg hunt in the shopping area, so she hopes she'll be taking a bird to the event, because they do lay eggs...can't imagine tying in the porcupine, skunk, or possum to the egg hunt!
It's supposed to reach 70 here today, we hope that's true. It is sunny right now, and since mom will be at an outdoor venue, we hope it stays that way. Hope you are having a good day and getting sunshine and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It is such fun to have the surprise BOTD as never know who'll turn up in the spotlight. Love the crown pic Sugar made for you.

We figured you were out in the harness. Good idea for your mom to have the leash secured in case you jump or try to fly while walking around the store. Car rides are fun. Can see lots of things.

  A Healthy Diet (Continued)
PROTEIN

In addition to fruits and vegetables, you need to include protein in your dove's diet.

Insects are a good source of protein, although they are not necessary for your dove. You can either give them live insects or dried ones.

Another good source of protein are chopped hard-boiled eggs. This is important for breeding doves that are raising chicks. Crushed egg shells mixed in with the egg will provide calcium with the protein. Note: Eggs must be cooked thoroughly. Your bird can become sick from partially or uncooked eggs.

You can also give your dove tiny bits of thoroughly cooked meat or bits of cheese. However, this should be given only rarely and as a special treat.

  A Healthy Diet
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

Although all common pet doves are in the seed-eaters group, there are additional foods that can be a part their diet.

Seed-eating doves cannot tolerate large amounts of high-water-content foods. However, a daily treat of fresh food is fine for most doves.

Fruits and vegetables are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. When choosing produce, (one's that are safe for birds) bright colors are the healthiest choice. Example: sweet potatoes are more nutritious than white potatoes, red peppers have more vitamins than green peppers, and red grapes are higher in antioxidants than green grapes. Dark leafy green vegetables are also nutritious.

Some of the most favorite foods of the dove include:
shredded greens, grated carrots, finely chopped broccoli florets, diced apple, berries, fresh corn and peas. Your dove may not like all these foods, but as you experiment with differents ones, you will find that they may be some of their favorites.

Have a great day! Thank you for voting for me to be BOTM. Leaving a vote for you!
