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. 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

I am a Yellow-Collared Macaw from Boyne City, MI.

Baby Girl, Chyna Cate

4 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
That's funny, dad dumped the ice bucket from the tractor. Mom says she'll help with the driving if possible.
Today mom went to the eye doc, who says all is well. She's going back in 3 weeks for the final follow up and the refraction exam for glasses, YAY! After the eye doc, she went to the center to do her shift at reception again. Maybe next week she'll start with the animals, but she felt it best to do another day at the desk today.
After the center, she went to the bank, then to the Giant Eagle pharmacy to pick up her meds, and finally to the pool for a couple of hours. Now we will have her for the rest of the day, hooray! She will be on the phone looking for a groomer for Polly for part of the time, but the rest of the time, she's ours.
I hope you are having a great day, good weather, and lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Day 22- Crossing the rushing Red River
Howdy pardners, Chuey here with a brief update on our progress on the Cattle Trail.
With Jenny-Lynn's safe return from checkin' out the rustlers I was able to have some peace of mind. We have other pressing matters at hand. We'd no doubt deal with them rustlers mighty soon. Sky, Jenny-Lynn, Jedi, Ms BB and Pearl at point we began to haze the herd towards the river. The roar of the water fillin' our ears long before we arrived outside Doan. Sugar, Boo Boo, Snowflake, Chipper, and Cori helped to round up the cows with young calves at their feet. Ropin' the calves and tying 'em over their saddles for safety. The others took to yowlin' and Yippin' to stir the herd to movin'. Cattle by nature are leery of fast moving water, and this River was no different. They hesitated as they were pushed by those behind them down the red rocky banks into the cold water.
Jenny usin' her horse, Get Away, bumped the lead steer to get him committed to the swim, the others bulked as they entered the river, bawling and tryin' their darnedest to turn back. With a swat on the butt the lead cow plundered into the water, eyes wide with fear, but she continued to move, swimming as she reached the middle of the nearly mile wide crossing.
"Move' em long, gitt-along, cow-bosssssss, Git-ip, move 'em up." Sky yellsa t the frightened cattle, forcing them to swim to reach the other side safely. " JL, Rope that red before she falls" Jenny-Lynn ropes her in one try, pulling the tired heifer to safety closer to the bank.
"Calf down" Snowflake yells to Jedi who plunges his horse along side the calf being tugged away with the current. " Got 'er" he yells out, pulling the calf beside his horse and out of the river's rushing waters.
"Bring 'um up" Sky yells as the herd continues to file into the river on the Doan banks. " BB, black steer" he yells over the river's roar. BB swings Sun Dancer to the right and ropes a steer who has fallen before he got trampled by those behind him. The horses whinny loudly out of fear and tension as their riders push the herd forward. "Susan, white heifer to your left" A yearling heifer flails terrified in the strong current, pulled down stream. Susan races Thorin down the banks to cut off the drownin' heifer, roping her over the horns she backs her horse up pulling the bawling heifer to the opposite bank.
" YAAAAW!!! Get-a-long" Spot yells to the now hesitant cattle. He uses his horse to push them to the bank and Silver drives them on into the water.
Dixie, Cookie, Hulk and Cydney swim their mounts across the river just south of the herd, to help pull out stranded cattle to safety.
Suddenly a bawl cuts the air as a red checked bull enters the river, tryin' to turn back he bumps those behind him causing them to split and run away from the river. Celine and Polly race after him, with Zippy Rio and Pookie cutting in front of the herd following at his heels. We had a stampede headin' our way if they can't turn'em back to the water.

  Chyna!
You poor dear, you, not having any summer at all. That's just not fair. My mom's disgusted because we're having a whole week of hot and humid right now. Grief, for as grumpy as she is, I'm sort of glad now that the rest of it was a cool season. Normally I'm all for tropical conditions, being a parrot n'all, but crimini, mom has no patience with me when it's hot outside. She's finding no humor in my breaking into the closet for the 10th time today or climbing in Art's cage and making him growl like crazy, or lobbing Kelly's basket of toys onto the floor. Oh wait, she's found no humor in all that even when it was freezing out. Maybe she just doesn't have a sense of humor about my parrot ways. Actually, I don't know what's gotten into me lately. Normally I'm pretty much content to play on my half of the room. I've never bothered anybirdie else or their cages but here lately I've been into everything and pestering everyone. And get this; I was LOCKED UP for like 20 mins the other day and it was AWFUL. I should've yelled the whole time the door was shut but I think I was in shock so I just sat there dead quiet. If it happens again — the injustice of being behind bars - I think I'll holler 'till you can hear me. Reba tho, she knows how to open the door. She let me out one time, so now there are clips on the doors, and not just one clip but two because Rebz can undo those things as well. By the second clip though she tells me "Too bad for you." and leaves me to suffer.

That's neat that your mom has met Aunt Susan and the lovely Miss Lucy Blue and the rest of her flock. Your mom got some great pictures of them. It's so sad about Finni's dad being so sick for so much of the time. I just wish he'd never got sick a long time ago.

  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN
Oh Chyna, please forgive me...I forgot to thank you for the lovely card you, your Mom and Dad sent my Daddy. That was so kind of all of you. Thank you again. Momma had a talk with the director of the facility that Daddy is in, and you should see all the attention that Daddy has gotten since Momma spoke up. It may be all right after all, but if not, Momma will move him. We'll keep you posted, not to worry.

It sure does seem like summer skipped us this year, doesn't it? However, the cooler temps are sure better than sweltering 90's to 100. Still it would be nice to have some swimming pool weather. Momma hasn't been in our pool once this year!
Lots of Love from Your Friend, Finnegan♥

  Hi Chyna
It's Alex.
Yesterday mom and dad drove to downtown Los Angeles to see "We Will Rock You" the music of Queen so we were in lockdown all day. Wow! Mom and dad said it was great. Dad was never a big Queen fan but he really liked the music. Boy was it loud. After the play they drove, well attempted to drive home. The traffic was so bad that it took over an hour and a half to get back. they went straight to Vinny's, a local mom and pop Italian restaurant for dinner. But no, they didn't bring any "Birdy Bags" home. How rude!
Yesterday, when dad fed us, he gave us some new green stuff, called Herb Salad. Dad said it will make us healthier. I like it but Sassy hasn't touched hers, yet. Most of our flock has gobbled it up. I guess that's a good sign.
Today is going to be partly cloudy, with a high of 87 and a low of 63. Not sure what's going on, though.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

  Hi, Chyna
It is good to have a nice looking tail. Terrible when fids are not housed in the proper sized birdhouse for their species and get their tail smushed or unable to fully open their wings.

Often mom's gone to the pet places and found that the 'tiel stuff is out of stock. As you say they do cater more to dogs/cats but for us we have more than one store nearby so just go to the next one. Annoying to have to do that though.

Supposed to warm up a tad here and yesterday was slightly humid. Hopefully we'll stay in the 80s and never see 90 this summer again and that you get warmer too.

Have fun rearranging, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote Pearl and Silver.

V4U today. Yeah, I sometimes wonder why the garden centers even sell plants that are not adaptable to the growing region where they are sold. The tropical hibiscus can only take temps down to 50 degrees, so we'll be bringing them inside of our house for winter. The hardy hibiscus is adaptable to our growing region so hopefully that one will bounce back next spring. Guess we'll find out next year. And I am in no hurry at all for winter to find out if it does come back in the spring or not. LOL :) Have a good day. From, Mayo

  Hi Chyna
every summer when mom was a little girl and the family vacationed at the beach mom got stung by a jelly fish. always on her leg or foot but a few times on her arm. there were tons of them everywhere and if the weather was stormy the beach would be littered with jelly fish. back then all the beaches still had sand dunes also. mom is so old.

random animal facts that may surprise you
13. Less time separates the existence of humans and the tyrannosaurus rex than the T-rex and the stegosaurus.
14. There's a place on Earth where seagulls prey on right whales.
15. Owls don't have eyeballs. They have eye tubes.
16. Animals with smaller bodies and faster metabolism see in slow motion.
17. Dogs' sense of smell is about 100,000 times stronger than humans', but they have just one-sixth our number of taste buds.
18. The extinct colossus penguin stood as tall as LeBron James.
19. Male gentoo and Adelie penguins "propose" to females by giving them a pebble.
20. Azara's owl monkeys are more monogamous than humans.
21. Barn owls are normally monogamous, but about 25 percent of mated pairs "divorce."
22. A group of parrots is known as a pandemonium.
23. Polar bears have black skin.
24. Reindeer eyeballs turn blue in winter to help them see at lower light levels.

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
As you can see in my blog to others--am sending you the hot weather! And I think your Mom should get you one of those nice big Coach purses!! I mean, doesn't every birdie need a good purse?!

Well, we had some decent rain here today. Mom wasn't able to get out to walk much, either. She did have a couple meetings in different buildings but she did not make it to the lake. Maybe tomorrow. Supposed to be hot and humid--and I am sending some of it to Miss Chyna, cuz she really would like some nice hot weather. We are supposed to be pretty toasty thru the weekend. I am not complaining!

This morning when got me up, we went to the window like we always do, to look out at the cars and trucks on the expressway. Well, they are doing all kinds of work on the electrical towers. There was this cherry picker out there, and it was raised up sky high! Scared the heck out of me. Mom said that they must have to do that to get any moisture off the whole thing. I sure was having none of it!! Had to go on my playgym, cuz Mom knew I hated seeing that thing!

Hope you had a great day, and thanks for stopping by! Wing hugs!

THEY KEPT HIM OVERNIGHT TO MAKE SURE HE DIDN'T HAVE SEVERE SWELLING AND ANY DIFFICULTY IN BREATHING. MOM WAS ABLE TO BRING HIM HOME BY 2PM TODAY. HE IS DOING GOOD BUT VOICE STILL A BIT RASPY.

Well today was my wing and nail trim and it went good my favorite vet tech was there to hold me so I was happy. As soon as she got me in the towel I let out a loud laugh . During the trim I never made a peep I just kicked my feet some so I must say I was a good boy.

Well its just good for me to sit inside my condo when mom is cooking she says so guess its good I am locked in for my own good then too. I even got outside today too and was sure it was going to rain all day and never did. Mom even hung the clothes out on the line and got them all dry too.
Moms cousin that lives next door has gone back to work and mom says she misses visiting back and forth through the day like they did when she was off. Mom is happy both her operations were a success and she is ok now and able to go back though and happy for her, Mom and her chat some on the weekends though so that is good too. When she would come in the door I would always yell real loud cause she just has that voice that makes me do it LOL. “Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes playing a poor hand well.“ Left a vote for you my friend~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Im finally back on the BC Mom has been so busy at work again that some nights she don't get home till midnight and she leaves the house at 10 in the morning. Dad don't know much about the BC SO he don't get on here with us. I told him we could teach him but was not up for that. Plus he not getting home till late either cause of work. Mom is off for the next 3 days so she said she let us catch up on here. Its hot and sunny here and SUPOSE to be hotter tomr and Saturday so just maybe we will het some outside time .

  Day 21-- The Perils that lurk in the water
Howdy wranglers, Chuey here with today's Cattle Drive Update. It's a warm day as the sun rose over the horizon. The final night watch was in from the herd as Kaji and Lizzie served up a mes of biscuits with gravy, oatmeal and black thick Texas Coffee. A mighty fine feed if ya are askin' me. Mikey was busy loading up the hot-rolls into the Dragon-wagon (chuck-wagon to all ye green-horns) as the light finally began to bounce off the milling herd of critters out on the pasture just north-east of Doan.
I'd been a ponderin' what had become of Jenny-Lynn and the spies we'd left yonder in the hills keepin' an eye on our rustler friends there. About the time I was gettin to frettin' some, Kiddo came galloping into Doan with news. " Jenny-Lynn had decided the only ways to know what a rustler was thinkin' was to become one of them." .she acted like she is running from the law and asks to join them, she knew Kiddo, Panther, Finnegan, & Sweetie had got her back! This is not an attack, merely a fact finding mission to determine fire power and numbers, BUT JL IS READY FOR COME WHAT MAY! She will slip out of the outlaws camp when they are all sleeping like babies cuz they had to much Red Eye to drink! " That left me with some concerns but knowin' Jenny-Lynn she could handle herself, we began to prepare the herd for the River crossin'.
One of the most dangerous parts of driving cattle was the River Crossings. A deep river that was wide like the Red River, and had a strong current from recent rain presented three great hazards. One was the cattle could be swept downstream, making them tired from struggling and causing them to drown. Cattle have no lick-a-sense and can get half way across and change their minds and turn back, causing the herd to become tangled up together and drown. The River banks themselves were a problem As the herd entered and exited the stream they need firm ground, enough to support 800 pounds of wet beef. Sometimes with the wet cattle ahead, followers found themselves mired in quicksand that sucked the cow down where it died a slow terrified death.
When the water was too hazardous to cross it meant delays which caused problems as many herds arrived at the same locale, needing grass to graze and putting the drivers behind schedule. Wranglers worked 24/7 to keep herds separated while they waited on the River to recede.
With all this in mind, we set out to gather the herd of ornery critters back into one place to begin the arduous task of crossing the rapidly flowing Red River, running fast after all the recent rains. With guns blasting into the air, whips lickin the flanks of some very stubborn strays, and ropin' in cows with infant calves at their sides it took well onwards to noon before the herd was back in line to begin the water crossing.

  Hi Chyna
My Mom doesn't want me to work anymore but I'm trying to tell her just how much I love performing.She's going to try and teach Candida some of my tricks!Mom is letting me do only the tricks that don't deal with alot of foot pressure for me.Mom is still hobbling around the house and dreads having to put shoes on!It takes her longer to do any of the chores!Now I think she should just hang out with me and not move around so much,hopefully we can get out on the deck later before it starts to rain then Mom will have to stay put with us out there!
Mom is deciding what to do with the blueberries she just got!The other day she made an angel cake and sliced up the strawberries she got and put in a package of blueberries and made some strawberry sauce and mixed them in it and poured the blueberry strawberry mixture over the angel cake and was it good!It sure sounds like you have lots of blueberries there!At least something likes the cold climate!LOL!Not us though!
Mom is going to make sure that Verizon takes those four days off the bills.So far the phones have been working quite nicely and we hope it stays that way!
Oh how awful to have a short fall and then go right into winter,you had enough winter last winter to last a lifetime!We can all do without winter for sure,we don't want the cold,the snow,the ice or the work it involves!I'm going to miss all my deck time and stroller rides around the neighborhood and getting to ride in the car without being all wrapped up!
It looks like we both had some fun chewing,you with your wood toys and me with my cage tray paper!I spent hours and hours in my cage making little spitballs!Mom wasn't happy because she had to clean my cage out 3 times already since early this morning!
We are having a partly sunny day with mostly clouds and its kind of muggy at 75 degrees.Rain is in the forecast for today sometime and right into Friday too and who knows what the weekend will bring,more rain as usual?Oh Chyna I feel so bad for you being so cold there so early!We are freezing at night and in the early morning but the afternoons get really nice,just like a true fall pattern!Oh please hang onto summer for as long as you can!We can't let it slip away from us like that!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet Chyna Girl,Loving you always and forever,Dixie

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

  Hi Chyna,

How are you, Girlfriend? It's Oz. We're so happy that your Mom has her Best Friend, Gail especially since her Family is so far away from her. My Mom is very lucky (she thinks LOL) because her whole immediate Family in no more than 45 minutes away. Mom's still up her Brother's til Sat. and we'll be so happy to see her. She has an appt. with the Specialist tomorrow because her Spinal Stenosis is really starting to bother her. It's been for months now but it's getting worse. She's hoping to get the shots again in her back. The first two they tried didn't work but the last one was called
Transforaminal and that one was done Sept. of 2011 and has really helped her. So she's hoping it will again. Mom will always have back pain but at least this helps her with the Spinal Stenosis part. After that she's hoping to get the shots in her neck again because they didn't help as long as she thought they would. It was last Oct. & that's why Mom couldn't go to Parrot Paloozo and she wants to have them done long before that weekend cause she really wants to meet your Mom and many others that are going. Okay, I have to go now but have a great day. Here's a vote for you, cutie. Bye for now.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

Come visit me, Parker, Silver, APACHE IS SO HAPPY SNOWFLAKE SAID YES ON 04/27/14, Oz & Cheyenne said YES to her Jedi 5/3/14.

  Hi Chyna
V4U today. There's nothing new here. Mom's just been so busy as always. There are now 4 tropical hibiscus on our deck and 1 hardy hibiscus planted in the yard. LOL :) They were all on clearance and needed a good home so home they came! LOL :) One of the hibiscus is in especially poor condition so hopefully it will bounce back after some TLC. It's been so hot and humid here, the mosquitoes are as big as birds. Not really, but you know what I mean. LOL :) Have a good day. From, Mayo

Come visit me, Mayo, Dandy & Marigold.

  Hi Chyna
It's Alex.
Oh boy, was yesterday all mixed up. Mom never went to the police station. Instead, mom helped dad clean up the bedroom so he could clean the carpets. When dad was ready to do that mom asked him to look a bunch of stuff up on the internet. Then mom said that she needed to go to Bed, Bath & Beyond. Dad said that he needed to go to the Magnolia Bird Farm for some Herb Salad for us and then to Walmart for some Aloe for us. But by the time mom was ready to go dad could have been to the bird farm and Walmart and been back home. They finally left and they did get everything done. Then they stopped at Subway for a sandwich before they went to the last concert in the park for the year. It was another big band called The Swing Cats. They were great. Nom's parronts went, too.
Today will be party cloudy, with a high of 88 and a low of 66 but we'll be in lockdown cuz mom and dad are going to downtown Los Angeles to see a play called "A Musical Tribute to QUEEN".
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

  Hi Chyna
She'll do just fine driving here, hope she likes tunnels!
Not much new here, mom did get to the pool yesterday and it turned into a gorgeous day by noon. Today looks good, too. Later she will go to dinner with her sister, then come home and clean cages for us. Tomorrow morning is her second follow up appointment with the eye doc, then back to the center for her shift.
Mom got an email from SamIAm's mom, Aunt Robin. Her lupus and rheumatoid arthritis have both flared up at once, not long after she underwent oral surgery. She had to quit taking one of her drugs for the surgery, and is now able to take it again, but it has to build up in her system to work. Anyway she's at home with a fever, thinking about BC and how much she misses everyone. Sam misses his birdie friends, too. We hope to see them back soon, but in the meantime, please keep Aunt Robin in your prayers.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of sunshine and scritchies. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Kaji, TiPaul, and Sky for 10k!, Peppino, Divo, welcoming his old buddy Tooth home & Falco, fly free, Tooth.
