When I was a baby, my brother gnawed my leg down to the bone and it had to be amputated. Some people weren't sure if I'd make it, but my mommy loved me too much and wouldn't give up on me! She took me home and I became part of the family! Now I'm a happy boy and I have just as much spunk as any other bird!.

Hi! My name is Gimpy

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Reno, NV.

Gimpster

8 years old   M

Green-Cheeked Conure

cereal

I like to hang from the top of my cage and swing my way across.

My Mommy and Daddy have a little Pikachu stuffed animal and it scares me! I also hate purple pellets.

My mommy loves to cuddle me and carry me around in her palm. Since I only have one leg, it's hard for me to perch, but I love being carried around! I also like it when she preens the pinfeathers I can't get to.

I leave all the purple pellets in my food dish and eat all the other colors..

One leg, twice the personality!.

  Hey There
Thanks for the vote and the visit. I get about very well. My mommy let me fully flighted so I can balance an do other things. I don't fly well though. I have difficulty landing so I walk and climb. We finally got a few minutes on the computer! Just flying by to say hi and beak the vote thingy for you. All is well here. After a week of rain the last few days have been heaven. We have been allowed to see the outside again! Take care now. Birdy hugs

  Hi!
Hello, my name is Beaker, I'm stopping by to give you a vote! That's too bad about your leg, but don't worry, it just makes you more unique! I once knew a budgie like me who was missing a leg, a very nice person took care of her. -BEAKER

  Helo Gimpy!
A little birdie told me all about you and said that we should meet. My moms (I have two) found me at a bird show here about a month ago and just had to take me home with them. My moms have several lovebirds but I'm the youngest one. A lot of the other lovies aren't being very nice to me so far. However, I had the funnest time playing on the hanging playground that one of my moms made for us. I hope you can come by and visit me. Here's a vote for you! Birdie hugs, Honey Bun

  Hi Gimpy from Tobias
Thanks for the compliment, My mom thinks I am cute too. Yes those are two of my babies. My mom gave one baby to her x-husband and she sold the other one. My wife (Delicious, as in the apple) is a cinnimon green cheek. I have another baby who hatched not too long ago, mom took him away from me a couple of days ago. He or she is looking like it's mother. So far they all look like their mother. When mom gets her batteries put in the camera maybe she can take a picture of him and let him have his own blog. Will let you know. It has been a pleasure Gimpy. Mom really loves to look at your picture, you look sooo sweet, are you? I know I look sweet but I can be a BEAR.. especially if you mess with my babies.

Come visit me, Grover, Mr. Wiggles, Kisses, Sir Poops Alot & Tobias.

  Hello from Gabby
Hi Gimpy! It's great to meet you. I don't have toes on one foot, so I kinda know what you go through with your leg. It's funny you don't like the purple pellets, I don't like the yellow ones! I'll send you my yellow ones and you send me your purple ones, okay? Have a good week-end! Gabby and flock

  Hi Gimpy
I just had to come and see you. I was almost 3 months old when I got my foot injured. I can walk on it a little, but still can't really perch on it. I am learning. I did not lose my foot though. They think I will be able to use it again. Nice to meet you. Here's a vote for you. My brother Harley was BOTW on Monday, but brother Scratch was on Tuesday...not sure what happened, as we thought a bird of the week was for a week...at least they kept it in the family~~Xerxes
