Mr Ziggy wasa carefully guarded secret at our QCPS bird rescues shelter, for 2 years! His previous mom had become unable to care for him properly, and was forced to give him up, but it was her wish that he didn't go yoyo just anybody, but a bird loving person! I had spoken several times for several months about Zig, and on February 16th at our bird club meeting, the Big Zig became a Dallas bird! I want to point out that he was not abused from cruelty, rather neglected somewhat by his loving previous owner, waiting to do the right thing for him, consequently some negligent abuse, but he has recovered, and is a very happy and well adjusted parrot! He prefers women to men, and he really loves his aunt Denise! I think he felt like a big shot hanging out with RaneBeau and Coach Reba today! He is truly one of those simple pleasures in life, and as he sits beside me every day, he brightens my world like you can't believe! He has been in my home for nearly 2 months, and I love him dearly, what is not to love...

Mr Ziggy, daddy Chuck, & the Dallas flock

Hi! My name is Ziggy & Hambone at the Fair~We're in it to win it

I am a Yellow-Collared Macaw from Rock Island, IL.

Zigmeister, Zig Zag, Z-man, and Zigster, so far! Now his BB knick name is Big Zig Hammer...he is the sweetest bird, I can not imagine why nobody wanted him...

12 years old   M

Yellow-Collared Macaw

Some fruit & veggies and a few unsalted peanuts in the shell, and his special Higgins parrot mix...

...on top of his cage, and back by his toy, he loves his toys and bells! This little guy has a big appetite, he wants to be like his new big buddy RaneBeau...

Any and all sudden movements, and not being covered at night night time

He is so patient and never yells at me for any reason! I get fresh food and water every single day, and sometimes a tidbit of human food, love that stuff...

Zigs will not step on your hand, but prefers a sleeved arm, and what a sweetheart, he is....

...pray a lot, and remember there is somebody for everybody, my Lord is a good and just Lord....

Jen told me not to try your Scoobers on, he may look peaceful on the outside buy inside he is PURE AMAZON parrot, and absolutely fearless! I want a gal pal someday, but dad said I can only have one of my own kind, crazy dad...

Love ya lady bird, Ziggy man

It was so good to call with you today. I loved hearing your voice. We'll have to call next time.
This morning we had 74 degrees and cloudy. Then around 11am the t-storm came and we were still at 74 degrees. I gave up on patio time. But, at 3:30pm ... the sun came out and it was SUMMER AND 80 degrees! I quickly put on my tube top, shorts, sunglasses and flip flops ... I was ready! Out to the patio I went with mom ...AHHHH SUMMER! It lasted a little over an hour ... a short but lovely summer.

  Hi Ziggy!
Hi ziggy! Sorry me and mommy have been so busy! Mommy was gone all day today! And came home and gave me a kiss goodnight because it was sooo late! Me and mommy have been worrying about my two fellow brother parakeets, charlie and leo. Our fellow sister keet, Isabella has just past away a little while ago. And they haven't been the same at all! We are so worried. Isabella was always the spunky one and motivated them to come out, now they just sit there in their cage, not wanting to come out, and they are very nippy lately. Have any advice, we sure would love some! Have a great night!

Here I go again ... squawk page ate my blog!!!!

WHAT???????? You are having 5 days of 90 degrees? This is so unfair! We are having cool temps with some rain. Our grass is green but we didn't dance naked in the rain for it ... LOL!
Did you see my skinsis on FB doing the ALS ice bucket challenge? Mom & I watched from inside as it was too cool for us. She was frozen!
Hope every bird had a good day. Tomorrow is condo cleaning day. I heard mom say that my stuff will be changed around. I'm not liking that! It will take me all day to re-arrange it!
Have a greyt night.

You look mighty handsome with your pig. I wish you luck in the race.
Hmmm, I bet Jenny is doing things too. She knows how to look innocent! LOL! Why are you lunging? I'm a little hormonal so that's why I've been bitey.
I went for a car ride today. It was a nice sunny day ... and then we stopped at the vet!!!! Wait a minute, this isn't what I planned on doing! He did my annual well exam, wing trim, beak polish, and a gram stain (that was embarrassing) and then he said ... I need to lose a few grams! What???? How rude!
I hope you had a better day.
