Lacie's Mom needed to find her a new home due to her medical situation. She contacted our avian vet who contacted our bird club rescue person and than me to foster her. But I knew she was coming home! She entered our home and filled our hearts! PS. She was a "He" for 10+ yrs until I had her DNA tested as a "She"!. Awards

  Hi Lacie
Oh my. I can not begin to tell you how different everything is for me. First, now that the E Coli is gone I am a different bird. I am talking, playing, calling to Mom and Monty Mae when they aren't with me. I am also a bit more, well, aggressive. I bit Mom twice fairly hard. I was all ready for the shouting and those things called hands to come at me to hurt me and it didn't happen. Not only that but Mom talked real soft and sweet and said she was sorry. She said it was her fault she must be going to fast for me. Well I could have fallen off my perch!!!! Today I got brave enough to come close to Mom. She was playing with the bell in my cage and I came over to play. She would ring then I would ring. Then I would bob up and down and get excited. Mom was laughing and I sort of liked the sound.

As for Monty Mae I like her but am rather intimidated by her. We have already learned how to make each others whistle calls. Mom is making sure we do not get close enough to touch. I know she is worried that I will bite MM and maybe hurt her bad so for now Mom is being ever watchful to make sure we do not get close enough for that to happen. Hope all is well with you my friend.

  Hi Lacie
Well I was very sorry to have not had a chance to meet you at the CBL party the other week. Of course it was nice to see Louie and Libby again. My was well chuffed that Louie sat on her shoulder and gave her kisses. I also heard that your Mom helped my Mom with sorting out how to get Caden home from the show. He is a handsome lad isn't he. Mom took him straight to the vets for a check up. Poor chap has an E Coli infection so is on meds for 10 days. The vet said I would be ok, the infection is not easily spread and Mom is keeping me away from Caden until he is clear of his 30 days. There are just a few more test results we are waiting on and toes crossed they will be clear. Oh, and Mom decided that they may as well DNA confirm that Caden is or isn't a boy while they were at it. Still waiting on that one.

Well it is time for me to fly. Thanks to you Mom for helping with Caden. I know my Mom really appreciated it. MM

Lacie! Here's hoping you get to hang out in all your favorite haunts on this spooky holiday. I wonder if you happen to be hanging out with a collection of eggs instead. I'm curious~ how many eggs have you laid since joining your new home? Too many to count? You're so happy there, you're just trying to make up for lost time, yes?

Thinking of you~

  Hi Lacie,
today mum's gonna tell you the 2. part & that ain't so cute!!!! It goes like this:
On her 2. last Sunday there, she paid all the birds a long visit & made the rounds, so nobirdy was feeling left out!
When she came to the one aviary, where one big amazon & several African Greys were living, one of the workers there, had the amazon on his shoulder! Mum couldn't believe her eyes & went right up to him with her hand stretched out towards the bird ( he usually was very tame & let mum scratch him & never attempted to bite her, when he was behind bars!!!)It was a big mistake, b/c he lunged forward & got mum pretty good on her right index finger! The man warned her just a split second too late not to hold out her hand to him!
Anyway, the blood was flowing, so the man offered mum to give her a band aid.
They walked together to his office, with the bird still on his shoulder. The man went inside & came out with the band aid, holding it out to mum ( big mistake on his part, b/c mum had to reach out for it to get it & the bird was still there!) As mum reached for the band aid, the amazon flew towards her like a maniac, landing on her left upper arm (with only a short sleeve t-shirt on)& bit her there, but luckily not all that hard, otherwise she'd have a piece of flesh missing! She yelled & screamed & shook him off with all her might, till he flew to the ground! Once there, he started to laugh his head off, the cheek!!!
Mum was pretty shaken & just walked away & cried a little bit, mostly out of shock! She went back a bit later to check on him & he was his old sweet self, back behind bars!
Mum's got a big bruise on her arm up to today & showed it to her family & friends like a trophy.
As for that 'Pico' she'd have loved to take him home with her....don't think i'd been impressed!!!!
Things are looking good, she saw just the laptop she wants today in an ad & plans on buying it tomorrow, so the pics are just a stone throw away!!! Mum can't wait herself to see them on a big screen!
Fancy that hurricane is called 'Irene,' just like mum!!!!
Hope it won't be a real bad one & people will be spared the worst!
Here comes a vote for you & a big hug,
Jivu ♥

Come visit me, Hi everybirdie, i'm back!!!!.

  Hi Lacie,
today mum wants to tell her first story from the holiday & this one is her favorite one, b/c it's got to do with...what else than.... parrots!!!!!
So here it goes: They mainly stayed in mum's home town, where they all liked it very much & all their friends live.
There's a little animal park there with lots of parrots & mum went & visited them every day.
She befriended 3 of them really well. There were mainly amazons, African grays & a lot of Australian native parrots & parakeets, but the one she liked best was a smallish, blue headed amazon. She gave him the name 'Pico' & he started listening to it pretty soon.
Whenever mum approached his aviary, he started to whistle so cute to her & got really excited . He usually sat right in the back of his enclosure, but when mum called out to him, he flew all across the aviary & landed right in front of her (inside the bars of course!)
When he was close enough to mum, he'd bend down his head for mum to scratch his head, neck & chin. He seemed to be really enjoying it & closed his eyes. Whenever she made a move & walked away from him, he'd start to sing & whistle in such b'ful tunes, that mum had to come back to him! When it was time to say bye bye, he let out this mournful cry, as if to say, don't leave me!
There was another, slightly bigger, yellow sided amazon in the same aviary, he (she) was a bit more shy & reserved, but also got interested in mum & what she was doing with 'Pico.' So he (she) eventually came over as well & wanted to be scratched, but 'Pico' wanted nothing of that & got so jealous that he bit him & chased him away, so naturally mum felt very sorry for that one & worked out a strategy. She made them both sit on a perch near her, but apart from each other & scratched them simultaneously, one with each hand! Peace, at last! In another aviary was a very cute white, yellow-crested cockatoo, who always came up to mum & wanted to just lick on her fingers & be scratched as well. He never made a sound, only looked at her with his big, black, shiny eyes! It melted mum's heart!
In the same cage was a very large B&G macaw, who's over 50 years old. Even he came up to mum & let her scratch his head, but only once!! Mum was very impressed by that & he also once, held her finger with his claw!
She's got pics of all of them & also took some videos, but as mentioned before, it'll take some time for them to be posted! Hope you liked that first story & mum promises there are more to come!
That's all for today! Here's a vote for you & a big hug,
Jivu ♥

  Hi Lacie,
I'm baaaaaaaaaack at long last!!!!
Mum & dad & skin sis got back 2 days ago, on Wednesday morning, but they're terribly jet-lagged (whatever that is?) All mum wants to do is sleep, so she couldn't keep her eyes open on the puter!
This blog is only to say hello to all my friends on BC & to let you know that i'm back.
They say they had a fantastic time in Germany, but the stories will come a bit later!
I did pretty well with Melissa & mum's very pleased how healthy i look, but let me tell you, i'm over the moon happy to have mum & dad back!
That's all for now, hope very much that you're well too, my friend & you'll have to tell me what you've been up to. Congrats on your eggs!
Big hugs & welcoming kisses,
Jivu ♥

  Hi Lacie
It has been an age since I came by. So have you stopped your egg sitting yet? I hope so, there are so many more fun things for you to be doing. As for me Mom is keeping me busy. I have to help her with the house work and baking. The other day I even helped her with paper work. I jumped down on the table and started to through all the bits of paper work on the floor for her. Most of it was bills so she didn't mind. Hehehe. Well this is a short visit but Mom says she has to go get ready for the day. Lots to do it seems. Hope you are having a great day. MM

Ok I hope you have stopped with the egg laying. Sweetie it just doesn't sound like fun. Fun to me is chewing things up. Now if you want something to chew on I have plenty of pinatas I can share.
Just wanted to fly by and see how things are going with you and the new home. We all know you are happy with that fabulous home.

  Hello Lacie
Kelly here. (Finally) So your eggs have been whisked away. Well, I suppose since they weren't going to have cute little Grey birds inside them, spending all that time and energy keeping them warm wasn't really necessary. You're now freed up to be "Lacie" again instead of incubator-bird, right? You know, I talk in a deep voice too!! Yup. Since I prefer to learn my words from my dad, I talk in a man-like voice. It's sort of odd, coming from a petite little girl bird. Poirot, he's my big handsome 'boyfriend'... he laughs about the fact he talks in a more feminine voice since he learns his words from his mom and aunt. Silly, isn't it.

Here's hoping you're enjoying your egg-free playtime!

Mom tried to tape him but its so dark all you see is his head popping up over the bottom of his cage on occassion! Lol

Ahhh, look at your eggs there on the floor of your cage. They're beautiful! I've never laid an egg in all my days. I wonder if it's something I have to look forward too when I get to be 10 years old. I'm only 7 right now. I suppose it's safe to say that time will tell, huh.

So, are you tending to your eggs, keeping them warm and guarded with TLC? I wonder if I would be interested in doing that. It's hard to imagine that but hey, sometimes we surprise ourselves when little gifts like eggs come into our lives, right? If you get a moment where you feel you can be away from your nesting duties, I'd love to hear all about this experience.

Until then, take care~

Two eggs, wow, congratulations. Our doves had a baby last year and guess that is all they wanted was one child. It continues to be so hot and humid here and so far no thunderstorm but it must be going to happen as there are flash flood watchs on for the rest of the night. Grandma wants to go to bed, I dont see why, we are not tired so why do we have to have the lights off. I asked if she found me a pretty toy, also did you find a pretty toy, I got a wooden spoon, what is pretty about that? Have a great nights sleep and a Happy Friday. xoxoxoxo

Oh my goodness! You laid eggs. I mean, it should not be a big surprise as you are a lady grey. You sure have my Mom worried now. I will be 8 in Sept and Mom is more than happy for me not to lay any eggs. Now with you producing some and Pico having surprised us all with a few earlier this year she is getting worried.

The most eggs I ever laid was 7 at one time. Now that I am older I havent laid any eggs for a while so that is good.Mom and skin sis were going to go shopping this morning. After some discussion they decided it was just too humid to go. Skin sis was going to get some things for grand daughter for school and probably too soon for much to be out yet. “123 like a bird I sing
Cause you've givin' me the most beautiful set of wings
And I'm so glad you're here today
Cause tomorrow I might have to go and fly away”
