I went on a website about animals, like I do a lot, it was about abused animals like unwanted ones or animals on production farms (like chickens, turkeys, cows, pivs, etc.). I watched a bunch of animals on YouTube that are abused and miserable.

Hi! My name is The Abused Birds

I am a Toco Toucan from Rochester, NY.

No one wants me or likes me enough to give me any

74 years old   F

Toco Toucan

I don't get treats.

I can't hang out in any place.

I am stuck in a place too small to do anything natural or anything I like

I don't have one, at least not one who loves me.

As I said, I can't do anything.

I have feelings too!.

  Hi Guys,
Its been like 85 over here but its cool cause we have the trade winds to keep us cool.

Right now there's a storm headed our way. One is Daniel and the other is Amelia. The weather guys thinks Amelia might be worse than Daniel so we gotta keep watching the weather guy to see what is happening.

  Hi Guys,
Well, I had a sinus infection when my new mom took me to the vet and the vet said my sinus infection was never treated and it just got worse. I didn't months of neglect, he said it took years to do this kind of damage. :(

Yeah I really don't like being sick, it doesn't feel very good. I wish I could just be healthy already. I know mom's been praying ever since she got me. She prays that I will be a healthy birdie one day and no more shots or drops or medicine.

  Hi Guys,
My vet visit went well, he said my blood work is okay except for my kidney numbers. He said he is concerned so he wants me to come back next month to do blood work and see if it changes or not.

So I hafta stick to my diet of that rice thing and nothing else. :(

Well, i'm still plucking and mom can't figure out why except that it has something to do with my bad past place where I came from. :(

She also thought I was afraid of the dark too cause when I slept in her room on my perch I was squawking and then she tried to put me on her bed so i'd be more comfy but instead I attacked and bit the heck outta her like I was fighting for my life and that some hand was gonna get me.

Mom was soo upset, not at me for biting her but for what my past has done to me. She never blames me when I do that, she's a very forgiving and loving mom. :)

She got me a new blankeee but I don't use it, not yet.
Here's a vote for you and hope you have a blessed day.

Love & Hugs,

Sallykins

Can you believe we had hail over here in Hawaii? Yup up to 4 inches in length and 2 inches wide. And we even had a water spout that turned into a tornado that ripped off some roofs and a solar panel. :( Not very good weather.

  Hey Guys
Thanks for your vote--here's mine for you. I like this page because I was a much loved boy until DAD got sick and went away. He never came back for me. Mom put me into a small cage and left me in the dark corner. I never got our for 2 years. Finaally she decided to sell me. The next home had a big house and toys but when I bit my next Mom she was afraid so I stayed in my house. Atleast I was in the front room again. I met my forever MOMMA and she took me home. She got my big house all set up and put tons of toys in it. I get out all the time. Even when I bit her aggressively, Momma kept me and now, I can trust again.
Stop in for a visit any time guys.

  Hi Guys!
My dear friends,

I would like to take this moment to thank you for all the well wishes and many many prayers for me to get well and healthy again. I really appreciate all the love and support you all have given me and my mom.

I don’t think I would have come this far had it not been for everybirdie and their parronts love and support keeping me going strong and to fight this bacteria.

I am so thankful that I have a forever home, a great mommy and daddy and frother Pookie.

I am also thankful for all the new friends I have made since being on the BC from the beginning of this year.

I guess you could say I’ve come a long way baby, huh? :)

A girly bird couldn’t ask for more than all of that. :)

I would like to wish everybirdie and their parronts a very Happy Thanksgiving and may you all be happy and your belly nice and full and smiles on your face from this day on and forever more.

Mom was listening to the radio and heard this song that was playing when she was taking me to the past vet visit.

Its called That’s the way it is by Celine Dion, have you heard it before? Well, the lyrics go like this:

I can read your mind and I know your story I see what you're going through It's an uphill climb, and I'm feeling sorry But I know it will come to you don't surrender 'cause you can win In this thing called love When you want it the most there's no easy way out When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt Don't give up on your faith Love comes to those who believe it And that's the way it is. . . . .

When you question me for a simple answer I don't know what to say, no . . . But it's plain to see, if we stick together You're gonna find a way, yeah So don't surrender 'cause you can win in this thing called love

When you want it the most there's no easy way out When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt Don't give up on your faith Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is . . . . .

When life is empty with no tomorrow and loneliness starts to call baby, don't worry, forget your sorrow 'cause love's gonna conquer it all, all when you want it the most there's no easy way out When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt don't give up on your faith Love comes to those who believe it And that's the way it is . . . .

When you want it the most there's no easy way out when you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt don't give up on your faith Love comes to those who believe it and that's the way it is…

Mom cried as she heard this song and thought of me and my struggles.

That’s why I’m so thankful for all of you. You all are helping me get stronger and feel better to fight this bacteria and be able to get nice and healthy and love my new life, with my new forever family.

Here's also a vote for you today. :)

God Bless you all!

Love and Big Birdie Hugs,

  Hi Guys,
Mom started me on the shots this morning. I'm getting CEFTAZIDIME INJECTABLE .15 ML Intramuscularly three times daily. It didn't hurt as much cause mom was talking to me all the time before during and after my shot.

Before that I was on CIPROFLOX Oral Susp. 0.10 cc by mouth twice daily.

Mom will be taking me to Doctor Ako in Kahala next Saturday November 5th as a second opinion.

I hear he is very direct and straight forward, so mom is preparing herself for what he will say.

Wish us luck. :)

Mom says I seem weak and tired, but at least I am eating so that is good. :)

Mom said it was so hard for her to give me the shot this morning. She keeps talking to me before and after she gives me the shot to reassure me that this is going to help heal my boo boos.

It's okay I understands, and I know mom wouldn't hurt me on purpose so I hope this medicine helps heal me fast.

Mom will keep you all posted as things progress with me.

Much Mahalo for all the well wishes and many many prayers for me and mom.

I have a feeling we're gonna need um, more now than ever.

Thanks and God Bless you all for caring. :)

Love & Birdie Wing Hugs,

Mama Ruthie, Sallykins and Pookie

  Hi Guys,
Its not good news. The vet said that both of my tests came back with Pseudomonas.
There are many causes of respiratory problems in birds, but one of the most stubborn and elusive culprits is Pseudomonas.
So, I will have to take 3 shots a day for a week with this medicine called Fortazadine? Or something like that.
The vet also said looking at my chart from the first time I came in, it looks like this will be a chronic infection with me. It is not from dirty water or anything like that because mom washes my bowls every night in hot and soapy water sanitizing everything.

It was caused by my previous owner, of whom we wish not discuss right now for many of you will have evil thoughts as I am having one too.
So, I will have to take 3 shots a day starting either tonight or tomorrow.

Many many thanks for all the well wishes and prayers for my me, I really appreciate them. :)

This is very heart breaking for my mommy and me, so I must go now and try not to think about this till it starts. :(

Sally walks away with her head down. :(

Mom says Thank you and God Bless you all!

  Hi guys!
That nasty bacteria thing is back in my body again. :(

Mom thinks it really never completely went away. :(

Well, I went to the vet yesterday and they took a couple of cultures and they hafta send it to the mainland so we hafta wait like maybe 10 days or more. It didn't hurt but I didn't like being held while the doctor was trying to swab my boo boos. :(

They test what kind of bacteria I have and then they
try to figure out what antibiotic will work for me. So, now we're waiting even more and it’s killing mom.
:( She's hanging in there tho. :)

Here's a vote for you today my sweet friend. :)

I thank you for all the prayers and continued prayers till we know what is inside me that is making me sick. :0
