Awhile after losing my beloved Bailey, my husband found a bird on the internet. He asked if I liked it. I said yes, but I'm not ready. He said you will never be ready so let's go get the bird. We drove 945 round trip miles in the middle of October in the rain to Ohio. We found "him" (they thought it was a boy) in a small cage. The wings were severely cut, nails in bad shape, and tail shredded and broken and very thin. They got the bird at 10 weeks and had "him" a year. "He" never had a name, and they didn't handle the bird much. But they did teach him to step up and say "What are you doing"! They said, we are asking a good price because we don't want the bird. Well, the bird came home with us, an eight hour drive. After our vet saw the bird, it's a girl and she has a respiratory infection. She wasn't properly cared for so, she will always be small for a YCM. Named after a song we heard on the way home - David Bowie's China Girl, please welcome ...our little CHYNA girl.

Hi! My name is Chyna ~ KY Derby week!

I am a Yellow-Collared Macaw from North Port, FL.

Baby Girl, Chyna Cate

5 years old   F

Yellow-Collared Macaw

melon, apples, popcorn, peas, scrambled eggs.

On Mom's chair ...

Don't make fast moves around me. I don't like loud noises either!

I now have a real family and a big cage AND lots of toys and good food ... and a NAME! I've never had cuddles before and I like it!

Takes her leg and stretches it back and over her wing and rests her foot on her head. Plays with her toys with her feet while on her back.
I love to toss my toys on the floor and have Mom pick them up over and over.
I love exploring around the house on my own.

Be happy and healthy.

  Hi Chyna
Ray still has a hole he can poke his head out of to get scritches. He likes when mom stops and scritches his head. He closes his eyes and it looks like he's smiling.
Hope mom's mammogram goes well and that she finds a nice bedskirt.
My big news: The vet is very pleased with my progress. The scab fell off my booboo when she toweled me yesterday. She examined the wound to make sure it wasn't seeping anywhere, and it wasn't, which made her happy. There is still one tiny hole where it isn't quite healed yet, but it's well on its way. I have a whole bunch of new feathers coming in, both on my chest and on my leg! Even where I tore the skin so far, there are feather follicles still there, so the doctor is pretty sure I'll grow them back. We have another appointment next week, and I still have the collar on, so no baths or spritzes.
Yesterday mom saw a hummingbird on our azalea. She got all excited, and will clean and fill the feeder today. It was a female, which means there might be a nest nearby.
Mom finally planted her larkspur seeds, but it might be too late. Our neighbor, who gave her the seeds, already has plants 4 inches or so high!
Today mom is off, but has some errands to run, so we'll be in lockdown for a couple of hours, until she gets back. It's a beautiful spring day here, kind of cool, but sunny. I hope you are getting some good spring weather there, along with cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Chyna
Thanks for the derby horse info. Your mom must know her horses if her fave is the favorite overall. As soon as mom gets home from work she'll get it on the race coverage as not sure what time the actual race part is but know around 3-3:30ish (which is when she gets home). Always busy on Sat so can't always leave on time but at least traffic is never too heavy.

Forecast to rain here Thu/Fri and hope all of us get the much needed rain. Drought is not over for us. Think people need to continue to be wise about water use and never waste it.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  hi pretty Chyna
Happy humpday ! ! It's another dark and rainy one here - so depressing . . . I napped again yesterday and squawked for an early night-night - it was soooo dark ! It's supposed to stay this way through the weekend too - YIKES ! Not a whole lot of rain but drizzly and dismal . . . so I'll fill another jar for you !

Daddy is finally taking mom out looking for a car on Friday after school. I think helping g'ma get hers (Hyundai Accent) made him see that he would like to drive mom's . . . and of course mom is ready for something new ! That's the way it works in our house - mom gets new, dad gets mom's, and one of the nieces gets dads. Our family gets every last mile out of every vehicle !

That's all the news from here - except for very soon starting the end of school countdown . . . have a good day cutie ! love Cookie

  Hey Chyna,
Thank you for letting me be Queen Angel for today. I sure do like all the new stuff at the Castle. And those Mac nut trees we grew, boy they're growing faster than weeds! How cool is that? :)

There's a luau going on tonight at the Castle along with King Grey Bird so come on over.

We'll have all the Hawaiian favorites including the sticky rice! :)

Lots of local sweets like Leonard's malasadas and those purple poi donuts too.

Mom is making a ton of pineapple cake so we will be happy campers. And as the night goes on dad is doing the fireworks thing at 8 pm and we'll also have the bonfire too.

Marshmallows and smores galore. Come and stuff yourself and then go on a diet the next day. That's what we'll be doing. :)

Dancing doing the disco duck and other favorite songs will be playing and Laka will also be doing the hula too. We can all dance along with her. Grass skirts will be provided so no worries. :)

A big Mahalo for letting me be Queen for the day. :)

Love, hugs and a vote for you.

Angel Sallykins Queen for the day. :)

  Hi Chyna
mom has not been feeling well at all. instead of resting up and feeling better she was feeling worse and worse but continued to try and get things done. these last few days it was agony just sitting. her back and side hurt and her leg was throbbing. yesterday she didn't do much of anything and last night she felt even worse so finally went to bed early. today she is feeling better. she changed the bandages on her leg and saw it wasn't healing at all but its not infected. after cleaning it up and a[plying new bandages it feels better now. the painter is at the house and has found lots of wood that is rotted and needs to be replaced. maybe thats why we have so many ants.

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
Yeah, Mom is glad she has the insurance. And it will increase in coverage the next two years--she could have gotten one that would have had a higher percentage for the fillings, but they have a max of $1000. Mom knows that is gone in a heartbeat, so she found one with increasing coverage for x-rays and 'major' stuff. And she has $2500 coverage, so that is good. She is trying to hold off on the implant until after January, as it will be covered by 50%--most insurances have nothing to do with implants.

Definitely let Mom know when your Mom wants to do the fixes. And if you could have her send over the info on what she is having problems with, that would be even better!

It was definitely a pretty decent day. We did have some wind so it felt a little cooler than the 69 they said it was. But it was not humid so that was wonderful. Of course, tomorrow will be back to the low 50's. I think Friday might be in the 70's.

Quiet here today. Mom worked on the website for her hairdresser's hubby. If this thing goes live this year, it will be a feat of epic proportions. Mom hopes they like the changes she did--they wanted things that are confusing to someone on the site, and Mom did fixes to make it make sense to the average user. She would love to get things set up more, but unless she is at some of the meetings, she has to wait for them to make decisions. Mom could help with that, but...well, she will have to suggest that to them.

Have a super night!
Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  HI CHYNA!!!!
Mom thanks you for her belated birthday wishes...Yes, we now have a baby Sun Conure in our flock...The name that Mom gave it was Baby BG(boy/girl)because of not sure of the sex yet..Skin brother did not want to wait for them to do the DNA testing..When we heard Baby BG squawk for the first time it did sound like a macaw...Really loud coming from such a small parrot...
Whatever your parronts do for the derby I am sure they will have a good time...Your Mom will wear her derby hat...
So you pretended to be very tired when Mom was doing the laundry...Guess you were not interested in helping her this time...Pretty cute of you to get all peppy and loud after the laundry was done...Guess Mom got the hint you did not want any part of helping her..
Sure hope you are having a great Tuesday...Pecked a V4U...Many birdie wing hugs to you our dear friend...We love you, Princess and Cydney :o)

  Hi Chyna
Wow how great your cardinal friend comes to chat with you!!
Last night we were late getting on and tried to do my blogs but it just kept circling and only got one done and took us 15 minutes to do that one so we had to quit. Sorry about that and here is last nights blog. I don’t know about you but mom says I get more wound up in the afternoon. Today I kept flying over to the kitchen divider and trying to get into a bag of pretzels that mom has close by. Mom would tell me “go home” and I would but not for long and be back at the pretzels again. This went on for a good 15 minutes and then I knocked some of moms knick knacks down the steps to show her I was upset. Mom picked them up and put them back and told me again to go home. I did but was not happy. I yelled at mom and she said that wasn’t nice and as soon as I could I flew back over and promptly threw the knick knacks down the steps again. This time mom made me go in the condo for a while. I was not happy but after I cooled down and mom left me out again I figured those pretzels were not worth all that grief! I am sure tomorrow I will try again though. “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. Its learning to dance in the rain.” Left a vote for you my friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Chyna
I am having a pretty good day. Mom is still not ready to try zumba yet, so she stayed home all day with me. We had a nice half roast beef and provolone sandwich for lunch, which I helped my mom make. She was going to do a wrap, but I was velcroed to her shoulder and the tortillas she has now get heated up in the Teflon pan. Not gonna use that around me, so it was sandwich time instead...which meant no spinach! I am not as dumb as I look!

Unfortunately that was followed by a time out in my cage with the door closed and locked (very unusual)!! You see, Mom decided to update my favorite toys since they were pretty chewed up, but it appeared to me that she was stealing them...so naturally I attacked her ear to make her stop. Not sure if I had a time out, or Mom was just making sure I couldn't get to her ear. Anyway I have two "new" toys now, and I might deign to play with them before the day is over.

Then after trying everything she could think of to get me into my carrier, Mom gave up. So of course then I was quite contented to let her pick me up and put me inside. We had a nice sunbath even though it was pretty cloudy; it was still mid 70s and comfy out there. We stayed out till the wind started blowing. I do not like wind!! And just to make sure Mom knows who is in charge I played in my carrier for a while after we came in.

  Hi Chyna
Those sure are some pricey derby party events at the track!Its good that Aunt Jane has enough hats to choose from to join in on all the fun there!
Mom has been trying to get my pre race photo up for a while now.Every time she did she'd lose all our photos and it wouldn't show up on my profile page!
I love those boring days!That is so cunning of you to pretend that you were tired and had to rest!And then when she was looking the other way you were working on chewing up a wood toy!
This morning was another dark,dismal,dreary,pouring rainy day here with the highs for the day of 49,the lows of 45 and right now its 48 and pouring out there.Mom got dad off to work and then did some quiet chores before she got us up.She got our bean mix ready with real smashed potatoes and eggs.Then she gave Dixie his medicine and he gave her a hard time and wouldn't open his beak for her.It took quite a while before Mom could get him to take his meds,he only has the rest of this week to be on them.Then she came in and cleaned our cages,swept our room and we got to eat.Mom is going to wash the dining room floor today and wait for that to dry,she has to do it in sections and move the dining table and bench to the other side of the room and then back again after she washes that side.She'll do the hall between the bathroom and our room.She bleached out the kitchen sink and drainer and is waiting for that to sterilize.She won't have time to do the stairs so she'll do them on Thursday when she's home again.She may even do the floor in our room today.Other than Mom doing chores and cleaning she's home with us for the whole day again.Its another beautiful uneventful day here and we're happy about that!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for pretty Chyna!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hey Chyna,
I want to thank you for your votes for me in the quest to get my BOTM Badge.

It's just not fair as I had worked so hard through out the whole month campaigning. Only to find out that the BC was not fixing the site.

Perhaps with every birdies help me and the others like Kacey and Mikey will get our recognition like we should have.

A big Mahalo to everyone for their love and support. The things we birdies hafta do to get things done.

Here's a vote for you as well my sweet friend.

Love,

  Hi Chyna
Mom is wearing the purple shirt today. She likes it. There aren't nearly as many birds in the nursery as there will be in a few weeks! There were still empty cages in there. In a few weeks, the incubators will be jam packed, the fledgling cages will be full, and there will be cages stacked on top of places you wouldn't expect, just so all the babies get housed. Ray is fine!
Today is pretty cloudy looking, and it's cool out there, in the 50s right now, and only going into the low 60s. Mom will get some laundry done, and may change out some of her winter things for more spring and summer things. At least the quilt on the bed is finally changed to the summer weight one.
Today is my vet appointment, and it's at 2:40, which should get us back on the road well before traffic starts. Mom is hoping only one or 2 more, and I'll be okay. The vet hasn't really done anything the past 2 times, except look at my booboo and see that it's healing so we're not expecting anything else today. Mom is resigned to me wearing this collar until the feathers are more grown in, too. I'm used to it now, though.
I hope you are having a great beautiful spring day today, getting lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Chyna
We're sure there will be more opportunities to take pics of the cardinal. Sometimes we've had trouble getting pics to post. Did it give the format error? If pics aren't in a format BC accepts then it doesn't post.

When mom comes home on Sat she'll turn the derby coverage on. Know they always talk about the horses before the race and their chances of winning. Any horse favored? Always eggciting to see a close one.

Be laundry day here too but know mom'll be out shopping for supplies when stores open.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  I think a Derby party of 2 would be divine !
Tuesday is no longer mom's humpday ! Now it's a Wednesday just like the rest of the world :) She and her co-coach cleaned up the stage after school yesterday and put all the props and sets away. When she got home we played peek a bird ! It is a favorite game of mine - we play it like hide and seek - I hide under a heap of paper or in a box and mom calls for me . . . and calls and calls . . . till I holler PEEK-A-BIRD !

We are in the middle of a dreary rainy week - on and off all week long. The sun came out just long enough last night for the parronts to go take a walk by the river while I enjoyed my nutriberri. After some skritching time, it was night-night. Now I've got today to look forward to :) More rain . . . I'll put a jar out to catch some for you ! !

  Hi sweetie, ♥
I guess my blog to you yesterday got eaten up in cyber space...Is your mom going to have a Derby party this year?

We all like scrambled eggs here for sure, we like them hard boiled as well, guess we just like eggs.

Mom planted a couple of lilies, pretty yellow ones, today that she got for half price and yesterday, she had dad help her did a couple of holes for some bigger plants yesterday. She also got them on sale for half price...she loves to get them on sale. lol

Mom is planning on getting her hair cut tomorrow at Great Clips, the gal there did a grey't job last time, only 6.99.

Have a super day, love always, Scoober XOXOXO

  Hello Chyna~
I hope you had a great day! I didn't think I was going to get any notes done today at all! We had tons to do and mom still has a few more things to do but she is going to wait until we are all in bed! I don't know why? I thought all the screaming I did was a real help.
The complex is doing a HUD inspection tomorrow. I guess they are trying to get certified so they can rent to low income people and get subsidized by the government. I imagine they lost a lot of people when they raised the rent so high. They could have just lowered it and maybe people wouldn't have moved.
We had to clean up the house and the storage room. Dad had lots of junk in there and it took a while. There is still stuff to do but like I said, mom is waiting for us to go to bed.
The construction guys showed up a little while ago. They are blocking off the right 2 lanes on my side of the street. Guess it's going to be another noisy night. They did take a 3 day weekend so I am thankful for that. I think they will be done in a few more days.
Have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love ya ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Chyna
Well the weather was much much better today compared to the weekend. Mom decided to leave work early so she could get all the stuff done she didn't do over the weekend. She worked 4 hours so left 4 hours early so not to bad. She got the grocery shopping done then came home to vacuum. When she vacuums I start doing my mating dance. This time mom made the mistake to pick me up and move me when I was dancing. Well big mistake because then I was on the floor and lunged at the back of her leg and bit it. It immediately swelled up and bruised. Bet she won't try that again.
How cool you had a long conversation like that with your cardinal friend hopefully he comes back. Hope your week is off to a good start. Have a good night.

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
Anytime your Mom wants mine to help her with the screen, just let Mom know. She is more than happy to help figure out what is going on. It could be some problem with the display driver. I guess turning off the monitor did not work?

Mom's dental appt. went well today. The insurance still is up in the air. Mom thought she had 50% coverage, but she doesn't. She has 25%, but she is glad to have the insurance. Next January it will bump up to 50% across the board for the major stuff, which is okay. She says 75% is better than having to pay 100%. Since she will keep this insurance for 3 years or more, she likes the increasing coverage.

Mom stopped by the office today to make sure Frank said something about the cabinet. Not sure when it will be taken care of. We are hoping soon (before the bottom totally disintegrates!) We will have to wait until the owner comes, which should be relatively soon. They do a good job on the buildings--or Mom would not have stayed here 18 years.

Have a super rest of the night! Wing hugs coming atcha!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  HI CHYNA!!!!
Derby Week!!!! Guess you are getting excited...This is always a big week for your Mom...
Well we were not on blogging for the weekend because it was Mom's birthday Friday and skin brother called and told her he was coming up for the weekend and bringing his dog Dandan who is a super hyper dog because he is still a young dog..Plus skin brother surprised Mom and bought her a beautiful baby Sun Conure..It has been a bird Mom always wanted to get...Now she has one..Of course this parrot is so different from us Cockatiels so it is all new to Mom...
Since we had a lot of rain over the weekend the brush fire is now 100% contained and the summer cabins were able to be saved...The weather here for the whole week has rain in it everyday...
Sure hope you are having a great Monday....Pecked a V4U...Many birdie wing hugs to you our dear friend..We love you, Princess and Cydney :o)

  Chyna!!!
It's DERBY Week! I bet you and your Mom are so excited! Time for the wearin' of the fancy hats. If my mom put on a giant Derby hat I'd be all like, Oh! let me touch that pleeeeese! I already know what I'd get told tho.

I suppose you've been hangin' out by the pool, soakin' up the Florida sunshine like a sponge. I've been outside a few times this year but not at all in the last week 'cause all it's done is rain. And it's back t'bein' rather chilly too. I think there are some parrot-friendly days comin' up again tho so you can bet I'll have my tail feathers back out in the aviary. Can't wait!

Jen-Lynn and Lalo are still hangin' out with the McFlock. I think Jen's decided my mom tells nothin' but fibs when it comes to her gettin' to go back home. Mom first told her it'd be for just a few days and she'd be back with her Dad but that's still a little ways away I guess. I decided t'day that I'd given Jen enough privacy and that it was way past time for me t'be checkin' out what was in her food dish. Well, actually it's Kelly's cage she's camped out in and I'm very use to checkin' out Kelly's bowls so I'm just going back to my usual routine. :)

Hopin' your Monday was a good one!

  Hi Chyna,

How are you, Girlfriend? It's Oz. Yeah, we have an In Ground Pool too for the last about 30 yrs. Well, actually 2 yrs. ago it was all redone so it's like a new one. Before this one we had a 27' round above ground Pool. It was the biggest at the time. A Friend of Mom's had a 30' years before but they had stop making them & you could only get a 27' which was plenty big believe me. Oh your Skin Sis's Shower is the same day as Mom's Nephew's College Grad Party & her Niece's H.S. Grad Party! Fun, Fun, Fun!

Okay, here's a vote for you, Chyna. Bye for now.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

  Hi Chyna
Well, Mom went to the gym this morning, and this time she wasn't back home in 15 minutes! Yep, she made it thru the warm up just fine, so Becky said she was ready for a session. Of course, then she made it a balance work out rather than anything more strenuous, but Mom still got a bit sweaty. They chatted between sets so Mom wouldn't get too worn out as well. Becky said she needs to be careful till she builds herself back up, so Mom didn't stay for zumba. She is thinking she will try it on Wednesday afternoon though.

And yay!! I got a sun bath today! It got up to 74 today, and since Mom got me outside right at noon it was warm but not too hot at all. We both sat in the sun for 30 minutes, but then I got antsy so we went back inside. Oh! And I climbed right into my carrier to go out there with no argument.

Mom was so pleased with me that she shared a hot pastrami and provolone on rye (or half of one anyway) for lunch, and then we had a peanut butter cookie for a treat afterwards. I sure do love those things! Yum!!

  Hi Chyna
How awesome is that to have a restaurant in FLA that serves Derby Faire!It sounds like Aunt Jane is in for a greyt day on Derby day getting to wear her derby hat and going out for lunch before she gets to watch all the eggcitement of the races!
Oh and that's another favorite smashed potatoes for sure!
I think that maybe I should send our whole week of rain here to you!
This morning was a dark drizzly day with the highs for the day of 55 the lows of 45 and right now its 49.After Mom got dad off to work she got our bean mix, eggs and angel hair pasta ready and Dixie's antibiotics ready.Then she got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and we got our bean mix.Then she washed the kitchen and bathroom floor and scrubbed out our water bottles.It got really dark here and then it really started pouring down heavy.We are supposed to get this kind of weather for the rest of the week.What happened to our May sunshine and warm temperatures?We can't wait to get outside and go for stroller rides or sit in the sunshine on the deck getting a nice soaking shower to dry off in the sunshine and Mom wants to be able to put her wash outside and not have to keep using the dryer!UggggH!Other than Mom working on chores all day today its going to be another wonderful boring day here for us!Nothing of interest going on at all!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for pretty Chyna!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hi Chyna
Those new pterosaurs just got installed. It looks like they're flying in a flock. Mom picked the purple shirt.
Mom talked to about 50 people yesterday about the pterosaurs hanging from the overlook. She spelled it wrong yesterday, for anyone looking them up: It's cycnoramphus, with a y not an i. They have weird mouths, tiny teeth only in the front. There were lots of people using the elevator and the stairs on the overlook, just not that many stopping to look at what mom had to show. She even had a cast of a pterodactyl for folks to touch.
After the museum, mom went to Barnes and Noble to use the coupons she had. As usual, it didn't take her long to find things to read.
Today at the center mom had the avian nursery to do. There are some nestlings there who had to eat every 30 minutes, and she had the timer for them, too. The nestlings were a little fuzzy finch, a Carolina wren, and a baby robin. There were also several mallards in there, 10, at least, in 2 cages with decoy moms and mirrors. There was a baby goose with a decoy mom in its cage, too. There were the usual mourning doves and pigeons, as well as an eastern screech owl, a cardinal, and a pileated woodpecker. Mom also set up a cage for a grey catbird, but didn't see it, as it was still in the treatment room.
She was a few minutes late getting out today; that was a lot of birds, with the baby feedings thrown in.
Now, mom is home with us, hoping to finish a book today, and maybe get some laundry going. Tomorrow I have a follow up appointment with my vet, and she is seeing me before rush hour starts, YAY! She's going to see more than 2 feathers growing in, too. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Flitzer, readying for Dad's trip
Happy Monday. Dad is packing and running around the house setting up "bird-care"stations.
He's nervous about leaving me w Aunt Kathy - they were both miserable to each other last time.
Dad will be gone 5 days, and is praying we all survive the duration.
--
Dad is visiting his Mom in Kentucky - and he'll be flying. He hates travel, hates flying, and hates being away from home.

Hoping all goes well.

  Hi, Chyna
Maybe should give out some spray bottles for that shower, heehee.

Okay, figured the derby was this Sat since so much talk about it on the news lately. Any favorites we should look for? The parronts don't really follow horse racing and don't think seen the KY Oaks race but thanks to you do know about it now. Mom gets home from work close to 3PM on Sat so hopefully the race hasn't run yet and can catch it.

Awesome to make more acquaintance with the cardinal. None here and they are such striking looking birds. If ever get a pic please share.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Happy Derby Week Ms Chyna-from Jenny Lynn
...you sound like such a fun part, we are glad we are your friends! Once again dad has a doctor appointment at our VA medical clinic, that just cuts the heart out of our day! He will be waiting around a lot to be called into the various specialty rooms, certainly not much fun, but a necessary evil, none the less! We are having another gloomy overcast day with more rain coming, when will it ever end! Our day will be filled with boring stuff, but aunt Denise always entertains us, she is so sweet! Have a great Monday dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Monday love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Angel Christy, & our crippled daddy
