I found her in an exotic pet store, she was quiet, looked extremely intelligent and was the only bird that didnt try to bite me..

Hi! My name is Crockette

I am an African Grey from Crawfordville, FL.

Crockie, and she calls herself both Crockette birdie and Crockie.

30 years old   F

African Grey

Crockete's favorites are carrots, p-nuts, and mom's homemade honey bars.

On her minneral block(for some reason, she insists its a powdery perch. She also likes the top of her cage door.

Crockette hates change. If anything leaves her cage, she gets angry and pitches a "fit" of screams. If anything new is to be put into her cage, it must first "vacation" outside her cage for at least 3 days, then she usually will allow you to put it in, if it scares her for 3 days forgetdaboutit!

I love that my owner (Mom) is overprotective,- safety conscience,read- s everything she can about birds and makes a point to keep up on the latest news on health and keeping me happy.

Crockie's quirky habit(s), let's see you mean the one about having epic battles with her "lavarock on a chain"prior to dinner time? Or the one about feeding all the pets in our house from her food bowl. Our cat and dog adore her, they now need to go on diets..

We live what we learn so, learn all that you can to keep your bird(s) healthy and happy..

  Vote Spirit Cloude 144812 BOTM March!
Chirp Chirp! ~ Hi there, my name is Spirit Cloude (144812), and I am a 5 year old (male) budgie from W. Gardiner Maine. I’m running for March BOTM in honor of my Uncle Maximillian, on page #9042, who tragically passed away last year (2010) on March 14th, at 18 years old. I miss him, and so I’ve decided to dedicate my run to him.
.·:*¨¨*:·. .·:*¨¨*:·. .·:*¨¨*:·. .·:*¨¨*:·.
And now a little bit about myself … I am a crazy little blue & white budgie, that my Mama bought from Petco on June 26th, 2005. Mama wanted to give me a hatchdate, since for 5 years we’ve just said it was my “Gotcha Date” because we new that I was a year older by then. So, after about a week of thinking, we decided to have my hatchdate March 16th! My favorite singers are Taylor Swift and Hillary Duff, but my favorite song is “Kiss Me Thru The Phone”, by Soulja Boy Tell ‘em. I also like “Fearless” by Taylor Swift. When a song comes on that I really like, I start to dance and chirp. I’ll walk up and down my perch, rub my bill on it and chirp, chirp, chirp. One time, I learned a tune. It was on the Nintendo 64 and it was a Super Mario game! I learned the tune to one of the courses. Mama also taught me how to make kissie noises once. I couldn’t make them quite the way she can, but I did pretty well!
.·:*¨¨*:·. .·:*¨¨*:·. .·:*¨¨*:·. .·:*¨¨*:·.
My BOTM theme is All About Birds! I’ll have a new fact each day for you. So please fly over to my page, post a blog and

*¨*•.,,.•*¨* Vote Spirit Cloude 144812 BOTM! *¨*•.,,.•*¨*

  Hey Crockette Birdie
Zippy here. Mom may or may not do anything for Valentines. She made Polly a Valentine collar, HA HA HA! He has to wear one, I am free to fly. Polly can fly short distances with his collar.
We are still with Arctic air here until the start of a warm up Friday. Rain is possible next week, Mom says flood? We have only a little over a foot of snow on the ground. Since last week there has not been much added. But we stay inside with the warm!

Come visit me, Polly; V4 CHUEY #245908 BOTM; Red White Blue & Zippy; V4 CHUEY #245908 BOTM Fireworks time.

  Hi Crockette!
Hi from one cautious grey to another. I agree with you about change. If a new toy comes around, I better be able to see it for days before I will let it near me or my home. Bing Amazon is different, she loooooooves new toys. when she gets one, she runs over to it and stands guard, then runs over to mom and kisses her. It's goofy. I just want to make sure it's ok before I touch it. Have a great day! We're always hangin upside down and hootin around here! Love your picture!

Come visit me, Annie B. Congo & Bing.

  It's the same me!
To all my old and new friends at the BC!
I wanted to let everyone know that I have been a member of the BC since 9/19/2007. Somehow BC lost my email information and we weren't able to straighten it out right away so, I now have a new "profile" page. My mom and I have moved to a new home since the last time we blogged. There have been many changes in our lives but, we are acclimating nicely here. As you can see, the birdie profile hasn't changed much though. I am so pleased that you all are voting for me! Thank You! I hope to be "talking up a storm" with you all alot in the future!

Come visit me, Crockette.

  Greetings Crockette Birdie
Has mom thanked for feeding the cat and dog today? How nice that you help out. Zippy ('tiel)likes help by getting any crumbs left on the floor--we do not have cats or dogs--human allergies. Otherwise we expect that the humans will meet our needs, tho' we do spend a good amount of time napping when they are elsewhere.
Polly (quaker) is right with you Crockie about cage changes--what are those humans thinking???

Come visit me, Polly; V4 CHUEY #245908 BOTM; Red White Blue & Zippy; V4 CHUEY #245908 BOTM Fireworks time.
