It's actually a sad story (for me) I needed a companion animal who wouldn't get sick. (My cat had been diagnosed with a rare and terminal disease.) Though I'm not ignorant in the fact that birds can and do get sick, I've read and researched that with the proper care and diet there should be no problems. I had wanted to buy a Conure from a breeder, however, when I went to purchase the cage and any supplies at a pet store I saw my Frankie hidden in a small room with cages and cages of other birds. She was frantic and afraid. She shared a small cage with another bird who had been plucking out her tail feathers. (What a bully!) I needed to rescue her. The look in her eyes was too pathetic to ignore. It was the happiest day of my life and probably her too. 3 years later and we're inseparable.. Awards

Hi! My name is Frankie

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Lindenhurst, NY.

Franks & beans, Her Majesty, bug, boogie,Frankie-- love, cranky Frankie.

3 years old   F

Green-Cheeked Conure

apples, grapes, safflower seeds and sunflower seeds

On mommy, on my rope perch, mostly on mommy :)

Other birds flying, loud noises, bad music, mom leaving the room for more than a second

How much she spends time with me. Every spare moment we're together playing or watching t.v. She's patient and puts up with my occasional nips and attitude.

I walk around my bath bowl a few times before I jump in. Even though I know my mom wants me to talk to her, I wait till she leaves the room before I do. If mom isn't paying enough attention to me, I let out a nice loud always makes her laugh..

If I look pathetic and act pathetic my mommy won't leave me. :).

  Hi Frankie
I was so happy to hear back from you! My Mommy and I had so much fun this weekend at the shop. We had new baby birdies there and 5 of them was my baby brothers/sisters. A family that had came in last weekend and met me came back to meet them and one of them is going home with that family in a couple weeks when the babies are ready to go. I know they will make a wonderful family and my little brother/sister will be so happy. Mommy was so busy working that day she didn't see the family come in so to get her attention I hopped on the teen age girl's shoulders. I am so excited for them! Mommy laughs at me and says if I don't like the family that is interested in taking my feathered friends home then her and Jammie don't feel comfortable selling the babies and make sure the families know this is seriously a life long commentment. Too many feathered friends are neglected or given up and we try to stop that.

I got to meet Stanley a 4 year old Goffin Cockatool too. Stanley is really shy around people and Jammie has only had him a week. By the end of the day Mommy had him eating out of her hand and coming to her on command, Stanley was even combing her hair. Wyatt, my human brother, got Stanley to dance while he was singing to him. Jammie laughed at the 2 of them and said Stanley must really like Country music. Mommy talked to Jammie yesterday and Jammie told us that Stanley is really starting to come out of his shell now and she gave credit to that to Mommy and Wyatt.

Oscar my new little brother was there too and he is getting so much bigger. I think he is so funny to watch and we definitely know he is a boy even without testing. He is so nosey and won't stay with his siblings just to see what is going on. He is also going to be the talkative one. Mommy is posting new pictures of him soon. He is going to be a handsome little guy according to Mommy.

Daddy was at the shop too and he got to see how much Mommy enjoys it. He was talking to Jammie and told her he wished she could do this full time since she loves it so much. I know Mommy loves her other job as a Registered Nurse, she just loves taking care of everything. She is an EMT too. I would love it if she was around all the time too.

Stop by and chat again.

Come visit me, Oliver & Oscar.

  Hi Frankie
I am Oliver. I am so glad to meet new friends. My family loves me so much! Daddy does make fun of me when Mommy goes to work since she works nights and 12 hour shifts and I make all sorts of noise calling for her. Daddy will call her on the phone so I can tell her good night. My human children love to play and talk to me too. I have 2 companion dogs, 2 cats, and soon to be coming home is Oscar a Pied Cockatiel. I am one lucky birdie! I also work at a bird shop on the weekends and have so much fun showing off for the customers that come in to buy toys and supplies for their feathered friends.

I look forward to chatting with you.

Tammy & Oliver

Come visit me, Oliver & Oscar.

  Hi Frankie!
Aren't we lucky? We are the same kind "green" "cheek" :) .... you know...

You are younger than I am but it's okay, as long as we are healthy that's all that matter.

I love my Mommy and Daddy, I know they love me too! Even though at times, I can be really noisy when they are trying to watch tv. But they are very patient with me though and most of the time, I watch tv with them... and I love it when Mommy hold me in her hands. I love it when she gives me massages ... and when I am done, I tell her and I bob my head towards Daddy. And once I am on Daddy's hands, I play rough and I loved it. I know, Daddy loves it too when I play rough.

How about you? What do you do when you want something or want attention from your Mom?

Enjoy the site and hope to chat to you again soon! Take care.. and say hello to your Mom!


Come visit me, Reyna "Queen".
