Mommy wanted to have some company. I was only 2 months old when she adopted me. She got me from a breeder. We were by ourselves for 10 years. Then 2 years ago for my 10th birthday she decided to give me Baby as a mate. However Baby and I dont get along at all.We puff our feathers at each other when we are close. So now its mommy, Baby and I.

  Hi Oki
Hello to all my BC friends. Zeena here with today's BOTM Post. Today we will take a look at one of natures most beautiful birds, also my Momma Deb's" dream-bird", the Hyacinth Macaw.
The largest species of macaw, Hyacinth grows to be up to 40 inches (1 m) long. The Hyacinth Macaw survives today in three known distinct population in southern Brazil, eastern Bolivia and northeastern Paraguay. In 1990, the wild population was estimated to be 2,500 birds. The world’s captive population is probably much larger, numbering in the thousands. Today, the wild population is less then 600 individuals. They are critically endangered in their native habitat.
Of the 145 species of parrot in Central and South America, 45 are in danger of extinction. All 18 species of macaws are threatened. The primary causes are habitat loss and heavy exploitation for the pet trade. The Hyacinth Macaw is especially vulnerable to capture and habitat destruction because it is noisy, intrinsically fearless, predictable, and dependent on palm trees. Hyacinth Macaws do not breed every year even under the best circumstances, so the predation on chicks is particularly bad for the species’ survival. Since captured young survive so poorly (up to 99 percent die between capture and final sale), adults are sometimes trapped through liming of perches or use of baited clap-nets. Still, for every macaw that arrives safely abroad, it is likely that five died on the way.
The United States is the largest market for the exotic pet trade. In the last decade, 8.5 million birds, at least 85 percent of birds captured in the wild, were imported or smuggled into the United States. Even when the export of birds is controlled, the domestic bird trade often is not regulated. Another threat to the Hyacinth Macaw is the increased commercial sale of feather art by the Kayapo Indians of Gorotire in southern Brazil. The feathers from up to 10 Hyacinth Macaws are needed to make one headdress. In addition, ranchers kill Macaws because they believe that Hyacinths damage palm trees, which ranchers use for fenceposts, and scare cattle with their noisy behavior. In some places, local people still hunt Macaws for meat. Add to this clear-cutting of Rainforest and you can see the danger the Hyacinth population has to becoming extinct within the next decade.
Compound all the above and it is easy to calculate that their best chance of survival as a species is through captive breeding. Selling in Canada at upwards to $40,000US each these beauties of the Rainforest will remain one the worlds most desired Macaw species.
One more Question for Thought.
It is often people’s love of animals that causes them to desire exotic animal pets. What can be done to educate pet owners about the impacts of wild-caught birds and other animals?

Hi everybirdie, Zeena here with Monday's BOTM POST. Today we visit a beautiful song bird making a new comeback in homes around the globe. The Pekin Rokin, a song bird of extraordinary talent. I wish to thank all my many friends for their votes and stopping to leave comments on my page. I read them all.
The Red-billed Leiothrix or PEKIN ROBIN (Leiothrix lutea) is usually found in India, Bhutan, Nepal, Burma and parts of Tibet. This species is a bird of the hill forests, found in every type of jungle though it prefers pine forests with bushes. It has also been found at elevations ranging from near sea level to about 7,500 feet.

The species was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands in 1918 and spread to all the forested islands except Lanai. Its population on Oahu crashed in the 1960s and it disappeared from Kauai, but is now common and increasing on Oahu The leiothrix was released in Western Australia but it failed to become established. This species was also introduced in Great Britain but permanent establishment was unsuccessful. It was introduced to France, where it is now established in several areas.
Adults have bright red bills and a dull yellow ring around their eyes. Their backs are dull olive green, and they have a bright yellow-orange throat with a yellow chin; females are somewhat duller than males, and juveniles have black bills. It has also been introduced in various parts of the world, with small populations of escapees having existed in Japan since the 1980s. It has become a common cagebird and amongst aviculturists it goes by various names: Pekin Robin, Pekin Nightingale, Japanese Nightingale, and Japanese (Hill) Robin, the last two being misnomers as it is not native to Japan.
Pekin Robins don't fly frequently, except in open habitats. This bird is very active and an excellent singer but very secretive and difficult to see. It makes a wonderful addition to a mixed aviary with good cover provided. Housing one pair per flight.
The standard fare for Pekin Robins in captivity comprises a mix of dried insect food, fresh fruits and mealworms. they especially like fruitflies and live crickets especially in the breeding season.
Pekin Robins are difficult to find for sale but well worth the expenditure and effort to find them.

  Hi Oki
Hello everyone, Zeena here with today's BOTM POST. Today we head to the warm tropical Island Luzon, Philippines and visit an unusual and exotic species of Dove. The Luzon Bleeding-Heart. The Luzon Bleeding-heart (Gallicolumba luzonica) is one of a number of species of ground dove in the genus Gallicolumba that are called "bleeding-hearts". They get this name from a splash of vivid red colour at the centre of their white breasts. The Luzon Bleeding-heart is the species in which this feature is most pronounced, and on first sight it is hard to believe that the bird has not recently been wounded. A reddish hue that extends down the belly furthers the illusion of blood having run down the bird's front. The Luzon Bleeding-heart was featured on a Philippine 2-peso postage stamp in 1994.


The Luzon bleeding-heart is classified as Near Threatened (NT) on the IUCN Red List and is listed on Appendix II of CITES., since it is commonly trapped. Local people use it for meat, but its striking appearance means that there is also a market for it in the pet trade. A captive breeding project has been started in Australia, and the Philippines. Habitat conservation is a priority but it will also be necessary to bring some of the three other species of bleeding heart doves (Negros, Sulu and Mindoro) into captivity, to prevent their extinction. Recently the first captive population of Negros bleeding heart doves has been established in the Philippines.

Only two of the five species of bleeding heart doves are held in captivity in Europe at present: the Luzon and the Mindanao. The European breeding programs for these species are coordinated by Bristol Zoo Gardens. They are being managed to provide a self-sustaining captive population and to develop important care and breeding techniques for use in the Philippines.

Identifying the areas where Luzon bleeding heart doves are found and the numbers that are left is the next step needed to secure this species in the wild. Once sites have been selected with the local community, the area will be protected to ensure the survival of the species in that area.

The areas where the bleeding heart dove lives also contain many other birds unique to these islands, all of which have been threatened by deforestation. In addition, some are threatened by hunting and illegal collection for the pet trade. By highlighting the plight of the bleeding heart dove, conservationists work to save the habitat for all the species in the area.

Although extremely rare in Aviculture 2 pairs were found for sale at $5000.US per pair.

Hello my dear BC friends. It was a long day without our beloved BC family but we are happy to say once it was up and going it was actually much faster then before. I had a special request from one of my friends to example the breeding of mutations. As this is a limited BOTM series I will touch on it briefly. For anyone interested in more in depth study I have a number of very good links and references.
In simplest terms a "mutation" is any deviation from the "normal wild-type" of any species of animal or bird. They occur spontaneously in the wild, as well as in captivity. In the wild MOST mutations have a very limited life-span owing to their coloration or other physical characteristics that make them more visible and easier prey. An example of a successful mutations are the red markings on normal Congo African Greys. These individuals integrate well into existing grey colored flocks.
In Captivity mutations are able to live and mature thereby offering breeders an opportunity to reproduce like marked/colored offspring. An excellent example is the Blue Budgie. These spontaneously occurred in several continents. By breeding Blue offspring back to normal parents the breeders were able to produce more of the same. Through selective culling and breeding of F2-second generation-blues the color was stabilized. Mutations can continue to occur even in a new mutation color--such as the blue Budgies who then produced offspring with yellow-Lutino or albino pigments. Inbreeding, selective crossing and out crosses to other colored mutations has given rise to all the many colors common in Budgies.
When looking specifically at Quaker Parrots, whose natural color is green/grey we find that the first mutation was a Blue baby hatched in Belgium in the 1940s. It is a complete replacement of the normal green plumage by blue. The gene for blue plumage is Autosomal Recessive and both hens and cocks can be heterozygous or ‘split’ for or‘carriers’ of blue – depending upon your favored terminology! This means--both parents must carry the gene to produce blue even though they are visually "normals" Today there are a large number of mutations being bred.
With all mutations, breeders must cull out the colors they do not want and breed the desired colors into the gene pool. Through consecutive generations of offspring the color is improved upon, often mutating from the original mutation thereby adding yet another new color for serious breeders to work with. Mutation possibilities are limitless as they occur spontaneously and can not be "created" by humans. Hybrids must not be confused with mutations. Hybrids are the result of breeding two diverse species within the same Genera together--examples of which are the Hybrid Macaws, Blue/Gold mated to a Green Wing etc.
Today we will visit a selection of mutations from a number of different species, I hope you enjoy the results.

mom was at the store today waiting for the cashier to ring up her order and a woman with 2 small girls was in front of her. the littles girl was whinning for some candy and the mom kept saying no so the little girl picked up a candy bar and bite into it through the wrapper and all and then placed it back with the other candy. the little girl then noticed mom was staring at her watching her bad behavior and gave mom this cutey pie smile. for one of the few times in moms life she kept her mouth shut and face expressionless as she stared down the little brat who then burst into tears and ran to her mommy. mom thinks she taught the little girl a lesson but isn't quite sure what. either don't do that again or to be more sneaky. mom is hoping for the first result. by the way don't ever buy the candy near the checkout counter at any store.

Hello friends, Zeena the Ballerina here today with a popular, very pretty Australian species. The Bourke's Parakeet and it's mutations . These peaceful, gentle birds make awesome pets for people of all ages and have quite the following here in aviculture. With their calm personalities and soft voices they make awesome additions to any home whether it be an apartment or private dwelling.
I want to again thank each one of you for your wonderful comments and daily votes. If there is a species you would like to possibly see in one of my Posts feel free to mention them.
The Bourke's Parakeets (Neopsephotus Bourkii) are endangered in their own homeland of Southwestern and Central Australia, but are popular in aviculture. They are readily available in the United States and relatively inexpensive. Know the world over for their charming qualities.

The Bourke's parrot has recently been removed from the Neophema genus and placed in a genus of its own. Neopsephotus bourkii. Although discussion continues in this matter. The Bourkes Parakeet is listed on Appendix II of the CITES, as to be monitored and vulnerable. Our hopes is that it will never need to be moved to Appendix I.

They are the only parrot or parakeet that has no green pigmentation in its natural colour. The ‘normal parakeet’ found in its natural habitat is brown on its back area from head to tail with a pink underbelly. Wing feathers can be scalloped with a creamy white to sometimes a pale yellow. They also sport a royal blue on their shoulders, outside flight feathers and tail. A streak of the same blue crosses the top of their eyes. The male will have blue feathers just above his cere. One of the most popular mutations of Bourke’s is better know as a Rosey Bourke’s that is dark to light pink in colour. Today there are a wide selection of mutations available.

I trust you will enjoy the photos I have posted today in the gallery. These are not by-far all the available mutations being bred but gives a wonderful sampling of what is hatching in the world of Bourke's Parakeets.

Hi everyone, Zeena, here with your Sunday BOTM POST. I want to take a moment to thank you all for all your support and votes during this month's BOTM campaign. Today, we will visit with some unique and usual Budgie mutations. Known by many names, Parakeet, Budgie, and officially Budgerigars. these fun-loving, friendly members of the avian family are loved the world over.

Feather Dusters
Feather Dusters are a rare mutation produced solely at random, mostly among English Budgies. These birds are huge compared to other budgies and have abnormally growing, very long feathers. As the name implies they do look rather like the feather dusters used for dusting furniture. They must eat constantly to try and supply their bodies with the nutrients they need because of the heavy demand put on them by the constant feather growth. They generally don't live more than a few months, cannot fly, and are usually blind. They are also thought to be deaf and may even be afflicted with what is known in humans as Down's Syndrome.


Half Siders

Half-Siders a randomly occurring rare mutation in which the bird is split right down the middle with each half representing a different color or variety. One side may be blue and one half green, one half normal and the other half pied, etc. When one of these is at a show, you can tell exactly where it is in the room because of all of the people standing in front of the cage doing double takes. As they say, you have to see it to believe it. Quarter-Siders, in which only one quarter of the body is affected, also occur.

CRESTED

In this variety, the feathers on top of the budgie's head point awry, forming a crest.
There are three types of crested budgies: full-circular crest, half-circular crest and the tufted crest.
Crested Budgies are both a random occurring mutation, and one for which breeders can breed to produce them. They are relatively rare and sell for upwards of $100US each and more depending on crest.
Helicopter Budgies

These unusual Budgies are bred to produce long, silkie feathers at the shoulder and upper wing margins. The more complete the covering the higher the quality and price. They are especially popular in Japan and Asia where pairs can sell for up to $55,000US

Hi everyone, Happy TGIF. Today we will make a stop in India to visit a strange looking member of the avian world. The Wreathed Hornbill. These majestic birds are seen in Zoos and private collector's aviaries. The Wreathed Hornbill , also known as the Bar-pouched Wreathed Hornbill, is a species of Hornbill found in forests from far north-eastern India and Bhutan, east and south through mainland south-east Asia and the Greater Sundas, except Sulawesi. The Wreathed Hornbill is a large (4-8 pounds) black bird with a yellowish tail, red eyes, and a long, thick beak topped with a small 'wreathed' casque with up to 9 ridges. The male has a bright yellow inflatable throat pouch, while the female's is blue. It is suggested that the casque, which has a spongy hollow core, may serve as a resonating chamber for its harsh barking call, as a form of species recognition, and/or to convey health status. The first two cervical vertebrae are fused to help their neck support the extra weight of the large bill. Their 2nd and 3rd toes are partially fused to help them better grasp tree branches. Using droppings, mud, and fruit pulp, the female hornbill is renowned for walling itself into tree hollows for up to 41/2 months while nesting. The female leaves only a small slit through which its mate must pass all needed foodstuffs until their babies fledge.
The wreathed hornbill is an omnivorous feeder, eating mostly fruit. The male, however, will feed small animals such as bats, reptiles, frogs, crabs, and insects to the females and developing chicks. It can find food from the treetops to the forest floor as well as in water.
Captive breeding the Wreathed Hornbill is difficult but successful once specific requirements are provided. This species is intelligent and sensitive to change and it takse longer to form pairs; young males are vulnerable to bullying by older females; heated accommodation are absolutely necessary and a higher protein diet is needed for them to rear their chicks successfully. These and several other factors make them more difficult to maintain and breed compared to their African counterparts.
Chicks, when available sell to private breeders,and collectors for thousands of dollars each. This fact and their need for massive flights makes them unsuitable except for serious experienced collectors/breeders.
Tomorrow, we once more take a peak inside a nest box to discover what new is hatching inside.

Hello everyone, Zeena here with today's topic. The African Grey Mutations. Please note that all mutations occur spontaneously. A hybrid is made by combining two species from the same family group. Mutations do occur in the wild, but often fail to survive due tot heir coloration making them easy prey.
Several mutations occur naturally in the wild, like the F2 Pied Mutation, which results in a broad red band across the abdomen. 1998 saw the first created Grey mutation when South African bird breeder Von van Antwerpen and New Zealand partner Jaco Bosman selected F2 Pieds and created the first red African Grey. These early red pigmented Greys sold for more then $250,000 US each. Since the early 1990s red-factored Greys were being caught in the wild and sold to breeders who in turn attempted to propagate the coloration. This first red baby saw the beginning of a number of spontaneous mutations occurring all around the world.
Today there are a large number of beautiful, rare mutations available to breeders and collectors. Each mutation possesses the same personality traits, intelligence and healthy composure as their normal Grey relatives. Although some argue that mutation breeding weakens the lines, to date this has not proven to be true, since these mutations occur from F1-2 generation parents, and often from visually normal grey parents who carry the mutation coloring.
Today we will stop and take a look at several of the more common, and some fairly new and uncommon mutations available. Each has it's merits, and following. It takes many years and generations to stabilize a new mutation to breed true-to-type. Dedicated breeders work hard to breed the strongest, healthiest birds from the chosen mutations. The road to success it wroth with pit-falls and disappointments, but the desire to perpetuate their selected mutations makes it a labor of love to continue onwards.
Most of the mutations shown today in the gallery are unavailable to the public. Those that are sell from $5000 to over $150,000US each. I hope you enjoy seeing these beautiful birds, some for the very first time.

Well, this sure is an interesting place, and I am adjusting to my new home very well. I'm use to being up early, but my new Mom is not a morning person. I started making a racket kind of early, cause I was hungry. I'm still on one feeding a day, and usually I get it a little earlier. I didn't eat too much, but I like the idea of being fed by her. I really like to ride around on her shoulder, and see all kinds of new places in the house.

  Hi Oki
Hello again, it is Zeena with today's BOTM post. Today we head into Bolivia to take a look at the last remaining wild Red-Fronted Macaws. This is a special request from my good friend, the very handsome Mr. Cappy. ( Don't tell him I said that or I won't hear the end of it. LOL). Cappy's beautiful fister Dory is a Red-Fronted Macaw so this will be of interest to her especially.

Red Fronted macaws, Ara rubrogenys, are the smallest of the large macaws. Fairly rare and therefore not well-known, Red Fronted macaws are olive green with bright red on their foreheads, ear coverts, shoulders and socks. Their under-wings are flames of red, orange and yellow. They have teal colored feathers in their wings and tails. One thing to note is that Red Fronted Macaws have a bare patch of skin around the eye but lack the bare cheek patch of the large macaws. Red Fronts are generally around 24 inches in length and weigh between 450 and 550 grams. Their wingspans are generally 32 to 34 inches. Red Fronted macaws are considered to be one of the large macaws. They have a body the size of a medium to large Amazon parrot with a longer pointed tail. Considered by many to be the ideal size of macaw, they are fun loving and make wonderful pets. Red Fronted macaws can become excellent talkers and are quite the comedians. They are not dominant birds.
They are extremely affectionate, intelligent, playful, gentle spirits fids with graceful, moderately sized bodies.
Within their natural range, their numbers have been decimated by and there are now less then 1000 wild individuals, some have counted only 150 total. They are being pushed to extinction by;
.loss of habitat due to conversion of their habitat to agriculture and because of intense grazing;
. harvesting of the nut and fruit trees that provide an important food source.

ingestion of pesticides applied to crops; or deliberately baited food set out for them.
illegal trapping for the pet market.

However, they have been doing quite well in captivity and are reproducing successfully. Even though one can't consider them "common" - domestic-bred birds can usually be found.

Range and habitat

The Red-fronted Macaw is native to a small mountainous area of south-central Bolivia situated about 200 km west of Santa Cruz, in the department of the same name, where the climate is medium altitude semi-desert. The natural vegetation consists mostly of cactus (large and small) and thorny trees and scrub. The climate is semi arid with cold nights and hot days. Rain comes in infrequent heavy storms. It is unusual in that it is the only macaw to inhabit such a climatic zone. Most macaws nest in holes in large trees, however here there are no very large trees in its range so it nests in vertical fissures in cliff faces.

Immediate action is required to stop the Red-Fronted Macaws falling to the same fate as the Spix Macaws

  Hi Oki
How are you and Baby? We haven't heard from you in a very long time! How's mom?
Thanks so much for BOTD! I was a happy boy yesterday. Mom topped off the basil plants and gave me all the flowers to munch! What a treat. I didn't get a new pinata, though. She says that's coming in a few days.
It has been pretty dry here. There have been lots of showers and scattered thundershowers in the Pittsburgh area for the past week, but they seem to be bypassing us. It rained the other day for about 3 minutes, and that's all. Mom is watering all the pots daily, and needs to get the hose out to soak the ground a little.
Tonight mom is working an evening event in Dinosaur hall, which should be fun. She likes doing evening events, and it is only scheduled til 7:30, so she should make it home before dark. We will have her attention and cage cleaning skills when she gets back. It should be a pool day, too.
Falco is still fighting mom on the meds and limping, but each day her leg looks a bit better. Mom's hands are beginning to look shredded, though. Hahaha!
I hope you are having a great day and getting sun and love. Hugs, Willie

Mom has tried 3 times to help with my blogs but the storms have been cutting off out internet just too many times. She told me she would vote, and if the power seems stable, we can try blogging again. Over the weekend she has a wedding to go to, and will be doing silent voting - Dad will be taking care of us, which means party time. See you tomorrow.

  Hi Oki
It looks like we are back to a summer like last year - many power failures, some that last only a few seconds and some that last close to an hour, with no reason behind them. We arrived at the wedding yesterday, and were all set to stay until the reception, which is when mom had to go out, and poof - no power. It came back on, just as the wedding started, but it sure had us in a panic. When Mom got home, it was too late to read us what went on at the reception, so she did that in the morning. She went to a big church bazaar with her girlfriend today, and got a new BBQ, and then they went to one of Mom's favorite fruit and veggie stores and Mom came home with all sorts of fresh goodies for us. I helped her put some of the things away... in my crop. She brought everything back in a big box and she said I can have it tomorrow, after she finished washing down my cage. Leaving you a vote and a hug... TiPaul

  Hi Oki
TiPaul, one very tired campaign manager, leaves an excited Pepper hanging out on his perch, and tells Mom *I need help Mom… PLEEEEZE help me blog to thank all my friends who have been voting for me since I have been going along with Pepper and making sure he is doing things right.* Sure TiPaul – let’s do it now, while Pep Pep is busy on his boing. ..
TiPaul clears his voice, and says in a loud voice, * I just want to thank you for all your votes to get me into the 10K club even though I have not been around to say thanks. Following that frother of mine around is something else. I think, by the end of the month he might know what he is doing. Don`t tell him this but I am looking forward to spending time in the castle with him too. Time with Lizzie, especially. We have had that awful rainy weather here too, and that means staying inside, and taking baths in our water bowls as soon as mom has cleaned our cages. Hope to see you all again real soon.

  Hey Oki
Sorry for the delay in my blog. We have been having internet issues. Thanks for the great hatch-day wishes and BOTD congrats. We had a great time here for a whole week at the Johnson flock household. We even had friends stay for the excitement! Momma had to bird-sit so we had four extra parrots at the house. It's quite full and momma said she's up to her ears in birdie poop. We told her to lay off the daily cleaning ritual but she doesn't listen. Instead we get to listen to her singing while she cleans. She's not bad but not too good either. Momma had a bird club meeting today and I, Morgy bird, was the only one who got to go. One of our foster birds here has a cracked beak and she has to take him to the doc this week. He was found outside a month ago and his beak isn't healing right. Momma calls him Biscuit cause he loves to eat biscuits. He is scared of everything else though. Well I better get going and help momma with the cleaning (and singing). chat with you later!

Love,
Morgan and Ruby

  Hi Oki Buddy
I was out flying around on BC and found that every place I wanted to perch, an ad popped up. We are being bombarded with pop-up ads since i5 decided to close all their e-clubs. Prior to that we never saw them. Makes it slow going here on BC.
The weather this year has been all over the board. Yesterday we had rain, followed by a humid, hot sunny afternoon. Today it is bright but cold and very windy. I am starting to wonder if I will ever make it outdoors. I guess it beats the snow, but geesh, I need to get workin' on my tan. hehehe
Here is hoping your Wednesday will be awesome. I will be by to say hello tomorrow.
with all my love SKY

  Hi Oki... TiPaul here
Mom and dad planted trees with our neighbor today and now, Mom is going to spend time with us, watching a movie and just taking it easy. She set up the play stands, and made popcorn. The clouds are coming, and we are in for rain, and a movie and scritches sounds good to us. See you tomorrow.

  Heya, Oki!
Thank you so much for making me your King for the Day!! I am so humbled by everyone's wishes on my birdthday--and this was such a delight! And gosh, I have to say that it was just the best day ever--to be in the Castle with Queen Chipper, and have you all stop by. Wow, it is so great to have so many good friends!!

Mom went shopping and got me some wonderful fresh sugar snap peas, and tomatoes, and WATERMELON WITH SEEDS! Oh, that is the best kind, and she has been searching the only store that still carries it. And they had it today! Birdie heaven for sure!!!

Other than that, it was a nice day with Mom, and gotta say I am still enjoying this wonderful honor--right up to midnight!

Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Oki
We just had our long Canadian weekend and you are approaching yours. Our was originally on the May 24 weekend for Victoria Day but now it is whatever is the 3rd weekend in MAY.
I hope you have agreyt weekend yourself with lots of food, fun and friends. It is always greyt to have that extra day off to enjoy yourself. Momma Deb says she hasn't had one off in 37 years. There is always poop and food and water to take care of. LOL
Thanks so much for your continued support. I have been silent voting recently since Sweetie began her ordeal. She is not doing well today and Momma is waiting to hear back from the Vet. Please remember her in your prayers.
Talk to you again soon,
love

  Hi Oki... Micky here
A kind thank you to all you birdies who came by to wish me a Happy Hatchday, and made it possible for me to get BOTD, and Lizzie and Kaji for that AMAZING cake that lasted the whole time too! I am glad because you all came back to congratulate me in the castle. I had a fun time with Queen Chipper but the time went by too fast, as it always does on a special day. I did get a new toy from Mom but it took me a few days to get used to it. I don’t play with toys all that much. I prefer to try to reach the news paper under the grill in my cage and shred it for what it is worth. The new toy is made of cardboard but it is just not the same. Thank you again my friends – I love you all!
