I had a neurosis and picked all my feathers out because my former owner wanted me to be cuddly and I wanted to be a bird. I think I pulled out so many that now they won't grow back. I also scream a lot.

  Hiya Murphy!
You are still a great looking bird feathers or no feathers...I drove my mommy crazy for awhile by mutilating my legs..we had some issues about scheduling after we came together..but we worked it out:)..now we play the game of 'i act like i'm gonna start chewing my legs and she plays doctor by pulling out that tube of medicine cream stuff that vet guy gave her'...that puts a stop to that pretty quick!!I'm still a screammer though..my mommy tries to do my jungle call with me...not to badly either but she'll never be able to do it for as long as me. cya around:)

Come visit me, Maximus / "Max", Cosmo & Wanda, LOKI & Butchie.

  'S Murphy!
As in "It's Murphy!" Can that be my nickname for you? Please?! I like making up special names for special birdies. And you are one special birdie to put up with some human who tried to insist that you be something other than who you are!! No wonder you scream a lot. Myself, I go through phases of wanting to be cuddly and then not. But Mom abides by MY preferences. You just gotta train your humans right. Anyway, nice to see ya here on the BC. Here's a welcome vote, and an invitation to stop by some time.

  Hi Murphy....
I just had to stop by to say "hi" and welcome you to the channel. I'm a Moluccan Cockatoo and I'm a feather plucker too. I was rescued by my mom and I had issues (you can read my blog about all those) but my mom loved me anyway. Screaming is another fun thing to do too. Mom doesn't care; sometimes she starts screaming with me. I always win, coz I can scream louder than her. She just pretends she's one of the flock. My feathers did grow back once when I had to wear this stupid bullet proof vest (mom said it was an e-collar)...but I showed her, I plucked them all out again when she took the vest off me. Doesn't matter though...mom just loves me for me. Glad you found such a nice home. All the birds should be as lucky as us! Giving you a vote today...come visit me sometime! Birdie hugs, Buddy

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.

Like your motto; Skin is in! (You do have beautiful skin, by the way.) Your housing arrangement looks like something I could be envious of. Such space!! Do you fly? And the screaming thing...well, it's just who we are, right? You're just lucky to have someone who lets you be YOU! Congratulations on landing in such a great place, Murphy. From one macaw to another...a vote!

Come visit me, RaneBeau ('>.
