  Hi Georgie
I have been sick all day. Breathing and pooping is normal but I have been up chucking a lot. Daddy just went in to get me some meds. I was at vet yesterday for nail trim. The vet said the meds should make me feel better quick and if not better to get back with him. Gotta run. Have a good night. V4U. Hugs.

Rudy will not take his medicine ... moms tried eveything. Bread, Peanut Butter, Almonds, Nutriberries, his pellet. He isn't eating much either from what mom can tell. If it has the medicine on it he refuses to eat it.

I guess I have been in trouble cause I am not getting out much ... Rudy is getting out every day though the snot. Mom says its cause he is injured and requires special care ... Now I want to hurt myself so I get special care. Moms been talking of re-homing me but I don't think she will do it.

Gotta run, have a wonderful day. V4U. Hugs.

Ahhh that's right ... good grief ... with moms CRS Syndrome its no wonder she has trouble keeping up lol.

Yes with BC shutting down sometime this year alot of us have been switching over to facebook ... its not ideal .. but it is a way to keep up with each other. They have created a hidden facebook group for bird channel members called BC (Bird Community) .... if you have a facebook page I can get with them to make sure you are added?

  Hi Georgie
There has been many oils linked to problems in animals but one brand that rises above is Youngs Living Essential Oils. Many tests have been done with them and other brands and they are the most pure theraputic oil on the market (others have synthetic properties). Aroma Therapy for Parrots is realitivly new but there have been holistic vets who have used these oils for great benefit to their animal clients. The oils are not cheap but can be of great benefit.

If interested and you use FaceBook, check out the Aroma Therapy for Parrots page. Use of Youngs Living Essential oils have been used and documented by holistic veterninarian Dr. Melissa Shelton. Let me know if you want more info. Have a wonderful day. V4U. Hugs.

  Hi Georgie
Moms trying some "Pluck no More" from Kings Cages along with the Essential Oils Feather spray. She is praying it helps. She also uses the rainforest spray so she alternates products. I broke another blood feather and bled all over my cage .... when mom found me I had quit bleeding but she watched me closely. Then I played with daddy and broke it open again and mom put corn starch on it and stopped the flow again. I haven't bled since. Mom always gets a little freaked when I break a blood feather.

Its turning cool here and mom had to turn on the heat this week. Mom loves this weather. Me, I think I would rather sleep lol. Have a wonderful day. V4U. Hugs.

The rainforest spray smells good for sure but mom needs to be more consistent with anything she wants to try. Since she isn't home all day it's hard to get anything down as a routine for me. I have 1 ratty tail feather left and the feathers on my head. Mom is calling me her puff ball lately. Sigh. Have a wonderful day. V4U. Hugs.

The essential oil spray is helping me. I am not picking quite as much. I had my birdacure last week and cried through a touch up on the beak too. Mom has never heard me cry like that. She didn't realize it was me for a minute and was wondering what the noise was. The vet coming to us was nice. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

Do you like baths at all??? Glad the spray is helping even if you don't particularly like it. It's good for your feathers .... Like veggies for the feathers. Oops maybe I shouldn't have said that lol. Mommys don't like it when we are perceived to be misbehaving. The good thing is they always forgive and forget lol. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

Sorry sweetie. I love that spray. Maybe if your mom sprays up and over your head so it mists down on you you would like it better. At least that's the way I like it.

Ahhh, so do YOU like that spray as well? I like it ... but I like baths too. Mom has also been spraying me down with an essential oil mix that is supposed to help with feather plucking .... the jury is still out on it. It has Lemon, Orange and Lavendar .... it smells really good too.

A Dixie C/P:

Sorry for not being online much. Daddy had his first procedure (Radio Frequency Ablation) and is doing very well and feeling some relief. Next procedure for him is planned for next Thursday ... the 18th. Daddy is hoping to see up to a year of relief!

Moms knee is improving with therapy ... she has talked with the knee surgeon and the both agreed to try therapy for awhile and if knee doesn't settle down in a month they will try an injection and go from there. Mom is still in alot of misery with her chest pain ... we know its not her heart or lungs. We think its being caused by a cyst on her liver and its pressing on her diaphram and causing her pain when she breathes. She finally has an appointment with a liver surgeon on 22 July and they may want to drain/decompress the cyst ... we shall see. In the meantime mom is staying drugged up and isn't doing much. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

  Hi Georgie
Mom says she feels better in some ways and worse in another. Better cause her pain on standing is gone and now get knee just aches. I think it's the swelling. Just in a holding pattern to see what the tests show. Hmmmph. Don't know hold old your mummy is but mom has heard of drs doing replacements on people as young as their 30s. Dads surgeon will do it basically when the patient screams loud enough and it's warranted. He just doesn't do the partials yet .... Which is what my daddy needs. So we are waiting on another surgeon to see if daddy is good candidate for partials. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

Your hoomans are weird if they thinks we stink hehehehe ... try giving them a shower lol.

All kidding aside mom uses a product on me occassionally and it makes me smell good. Its called Kings Rainforest Mist and it will cleanse you and relieve dry, itchy skin while helping to reduce feather plucking and unnecessary molting. I feel and smell better but alot is not needed :)

One location you can have your hooman look it at:

Mom got ours at a local bird fair but tell your folks that they can look online for parrot cargo nets or climbing ropes to see whats available.

The Miller flock is safe and sound .... that said ...

Yesterday was a very tragic day here in Oklahoma. Mom locked down for hours on the Air Force Base while Tornado ravaged the Moore area (just south of the base). We have many friends and Co-Workers without homes now. Civilian Co-Workers will have double whammy with the loss of loved ones and a triple whammy with the upcoming furloughs to start on July 8th. So far 91 is the confirmed dead count and its expected to rise as we have not located everybody yet. Praying for everybody affected ..... hoomans and animals alike

Mom is very frustrated ... she got Cappy the new cage and he has already escaped ... broke a weld on the food bowl door and out he went for a wonderful day of destruction. Lets see, he destroyed the air filter (literally) and ate the cord right out of the electric socket (we had it protected with PVCS pipe), destroyed the pre-filter and left its trail around Rudy's cage, destroyed the avain scale, destroyed an ink pen, pulled out his pan (all the way mind you) and shredded the paper, chewed up a few toys except what was in his cage, tried to get Rudy out of his cage by unscrewing his food door lock and throwing it on the floor and mom doesn't know yet want else he got into SIGH. Never a dull moment. Cappy very lucky momma loves him hehehe. V4U. Hugs.
