My bird was up for adoption at the pet store. I was told he was injured so they could not sell him. They were giving him to someone that would give him a good home. When I saw him, I knew he needed to come home with me. Chipper is doing great now!

Chipper enjoys sitting in the nest, standing on the perch, and laying on the bottom of the cage.



She takes me out of my cage, gives me attention, and spends a lot of time with me.

Pecking at the bottom of the cage to look for food even though there is some still in the dish..

  Hi Chipper
Last night mom went to Lena's art show and sale, and she bought some paintings and some prints for Christmas gifts.
It rained pretty much all day until late afternoon yesterday, so there was no pool time at all. Today was a different story, though! After doing the main aviary and the small flight aviary this morning, mom got to go to the pool for the last time this summer. It was a gorgeous afternoon, even if it was a bit cloudy here and there.
As for the squirrels, the little girl grey has started eating mash, and today she preferred to eat rather than take formula from the syringe. This morning she drank about half of the formula, then turned her head, so mom squirted the rest into her mash, which she promptly ate. Mom checked at noon, and refilled it, and again at 4, it was empty, so mom refilled it again. She will still get hand fed a few more nights, but she should be back at the center by the end of the week. The little boy fox squirrel opened his eyes today! That means mom can quit stimulating him to go to the bathroom, and in a few days, she can introduce mash to him as well. When she reported their weights this morning, the staff was pleased with their development.
I hope you are having a good Labor day, getting the best picnic of the year in, or whatever else you are doing, and getting lots of sunshine and love. Hugs, Falco

  Day 1--Welcome to Cape Breton Island part 1
Hello everybirdie, my name is Angel Girl. I am a member of the SKY Flock, and this month's BOTM candidate. I would like to take this first day to introduce myself a little bit, and outline our month long trip to beautiful Cape Breton Island, Nova, Scotia, Canada.
I arrived at the Sky flock several years ago when my new owner became too afraid of me to keep me. I had lived with my first owner for the first five years of my life. I was born to his father's flock in the Barrie, Ontario area. I was a much loved, and pampered pet, who enjoyed the best of food, and attention. I even have a custom made large cage. When the relationship between my daddy and mommy fell apart I was posted for sale on the internet and ended up in Peterborough, Ontario,.
Why my new owner ever got me will forever be a mystery, but was, in part motivated by my Momma Deb telling her that she had wanted an African Grey for many years and was considering a clutch of Cameroons. My new owner had the very best of intentions, but lacked Parrot handling skills and experience. She was afraid of me, and when I made an escape from my cage, was unable to get me home again, and resorted to using a broom to "herd" me along. I came to hate the broom, as I was daily allowed out, but broomed back to my cage. Eventually I began to attack the broom, and the one holding it aggressively, biting and screaming my displeasure. After several months of war, my owner contacted my Momma Deb and asked her if she would take me in. My Momma Deb was very happy to go get me. She found me cowering in the back of the cage, locked in the back bedroom. I was quickly "caught up" with a towel and placed into a carrier. My cage and I were loaded up, and I was off to my new forever home.
It took a lot of work to get to the place were I trusted Momma Deb. She endured many hard bites, and one attack on that broom she was using to clean the floor. Since Momma Deb didn't give-up, I decided that I would trust her, and have since become Momma's special Girl. I have an extensive vocabulary of words, and sound effects, and I love singing my many songs. Enough about me.
This month we will be exploring Cape Breton Island, along the Cabot Trail by horse-back. IF any-birdie does not have a horse from CHUEY's BOTM Cattle Drive please let me know and we will round up one for you. We will be camping outdoors, enjoying many fun adventures, taking part in some Celtic festivals and games, and maybe even end up sparkled as my Fister Little Angel and Dixie Adler joy us for the trip. Pack up your camping gear, and ready to ride.
See everyone tomorrow as we take flight to Cape Breton. (SKY has transported our horses there by trailer).
Hugs and love
ANGEL GIRL 224627

  Message from QUEEN CHUEY
Howdy everybirdy, Queen Chuey here. I want to thank you all once more for riding the Trail with me. I had lots of fun and adventure this past month. I have a few plans for this upcoming month of September in the Castle. Seeing how well you all have mastered the art of horse riding,roping and the like, I think it only right to hold a RODEO at the Castle. The day and time will be posted both on the Calendar page and my own, also on my cousin ANGEL GIRLS PAGE.


Angel Girl is our September BOTM candidate and I know that you all will enjoy the month with her on Cape Breton Island. This adventuresome month will be narrated in true SKY FLOCK style and humor. It promises to be a fun, informative adventure. I must warn you though,that LITTLE ANGEL and her Hus-bird DIXIE will be joining you , so be prepared for some "SPARKLY" times head. ANGEL GIRL'S page #--224627.
Remember to give those horses some extra oats and molasses, they sure deserve it. Now, if I can only get these cowbird boots off, I'm gonna relax by the pool for a spell. Then enjoy some fine vittles in the Banquet Hall.
Hugs and kisses
Queen Trail Boss Chuey

  Hi Chipper
It's Alex.
Mom decided to boil the smoked turkey bones yesterday. Wow, did the kitchen ever smell good! She's going to freeze the stock so she can make turkey soup when and if the cold weather ever hits us. She also made more Pico Di Gillo. It was such a hit the last time that she tried it again. And, the longer it sits, the better it gets.
Dad took advantage if mom working in the kitchen and ran the Rug Doctor over the bedroom carpet with just hot water. He thinks he got all the shampoo out of the carpet so it won't be like walking on dried straw.
Today is Labor Day. But dad says there is no way he's going into labor.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 89 and a low of 64.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

Thanks for the congrats. Both of us were surprised and happy to do so well in the pie eating. Loved all the Milonga pics.

Last we heard BC isn't slated to end anytime soon. Would assume that they'd have to finish shutting down CC before they did anything to us, right?

Happy September ! Where did the summer go ? It seems as if it just started and now look ! At least the weather still says summer - we have muggy and stormy weather for today and tomorrow, luckily it moderates by Thursday which is when the kids start school. (Naturally ! Thursday is the day mom has recess duty !) At least she eases in with a short week !

I hope everyone enjoys this Labor Day ! Love Cookie

Last night was another grand night at the milonga and so thankful for all that make this event happen for all of us. All the events were so much fun. Towards the end we had a few problems with the BC loading so that is when Suzi and I left to play some games, ride some rides and eat at the fair LOL Glad it worked well for all the events before that though for us. “If your alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you want a hug I’ll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me.

  Day 31--The final Trail to Wyoming
Well, you can bet we sure had a merry time watchin' Bart, and his rustlers tryin' to get that mess off their feathers and cowboy outfits. The harder they tried, the worse mess they got themselves into. Jenny-Lynn just stood there, wings on her hips, laughin' so hard I wondered she didn't fall over. We came outta the brush and from behind them rocks to enjoy the show. Bart was cawin' and cussin' like a crow, but the more he tried, the worse it got. His wings got to stickin to his cowboy hat, then he fell again onto them ants and he was rollin like a dog with fleas.
"Ain't ya gonna help me Jenny-Lynn?" Bart pleaded as he tried in vain to get his wings off his head.
"Nah, I'm kinda enjoyin the show myself." JL sat down on a boulder and watched. The others gave up their fightin' and tryin and just stood their, sticky glop droppin' off in puddles onto their boots.
"Bart, we give up! You can try to take them cows ya gotta mind to, but we quit!" Twitch turned and looked at us, "you can shoot us if ya wanta, but we don't want your herd no more."
"You get, don't let us be seein' any sign of ya ever agin, or we'll be hangin from a rope" I finish and looked at them, grinning widely. "Now vamoose" It took but a few seconds before they began to wobble, and stumble off down the Trail, I had no doubt we'd seen the last of them. "Now Bart, what ya gotta say for yourself. You know the law of the West is hangin' but I don't have no heart for the likes of that. Instead you'll work for Lizzie, do all the dish washin, and ever she has a problem with ya, she's free to toast ya." Bart looked sadly at the mess he was in, and silently nodded his agreement. After much scrubbin in the river he came up as clean as a scoundrel like him could be. He worked quietly and nervously for Lizzie all the way to Wyoming where we cut him loose hopin' he'd learned his lesson. I'm a proud Trail Boss at how well you all learned to rope and ride, herd, and protect the herd of Long-horned Cattle all the way from Texas to Wyoming. You shot, and fought like the very best of them seasoned cow-punchers, ya ought be real proud of yourselves.
At this time I wish to thank each and everyone of you for your awesome support, both by voting daily and your encouraging words. I truly hope you all enjoyed your month long adventure on the Western Trail, and perhaps came away with a little bit of historical information too.
A very special thank you goes out to Momma Deb of the SKY FLOCK for all her photo editing, and assistance, without which I would never have been able to write such an eggciting, and fun adventure. Momma Deb is a real story-teller, and I appreciate her hard work, input and help.
Now, with my last blog posted I am heading back home for a short visit with my own Momma. I know she missed me while we rode the Trail, forged the River and fought the bad-birds. I have missed my hus-bird Mikey D too.
with love and hugs
Trail Boss Chuey

It's Alex.
We spent the entire Saturday in lockdown. YUCK! Mom and dad went to mom's brother's house for BBQ turkey and Tri-tip. They brought home lots of leftover turkey, BBQ beans and corn on the cob. We're going to get a taste of it today. It was about ten degrees cooler in Huntington Beach so everybody sat outside and enjoyed the afternoon and evening. We were already asleep when mom and dad got home but dad came into our room and said goodnight to all of us.
Today is going to be partly cloudy, with a high of 91 and a low of 66. Mom is going to pick all the meat off the turkey bones and boil the bones for soup stock. The house is going to smell real good today.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

Once again, the county fair milonga was fantastic! We all had a great time. My booth made a ton of cash, we gave out lots of prizes, too. Cash goes to birdie rescues, as we all know, and the leftover prizes will go there too.
Willie and Piglet had a lot of fun in the races, and he assured her she is a winner and a wonderful piggie. Peppino had peach pie all over himself and had fun in the pie contest, too. Congrats to Pearl for winning that one!
A huge thank you to Kiddo, Ranebeau, Taz, and SamIAm for making the night one to be remembered forever! The pictures helped to make the night complete.
Hope you are having better weather than we are today. It's cool and raining really hard here. We're hoping tomorrow brings some sunshine for the last day at the pool. They changed their late night swim and annual bonfire to last night, because of the predicted weather today, it was a fine idea. Anyway, I hope it's sunny and warm and a lovely day full of cuddles where you are! Hugs, Falco

Think the new company took over and they are the ones that decided to shut down all the channels. However, you say the RC is actually gone even though CC was slated to go is still workin?. So long as BC is still working we're gonna be here.

Great to see you at the Milonga. Kiddo and company outdid themselves. Loved all the pics and Pearl was thrilled to win the pie eating against tough competition including you!

The parronts are glad they went to the flea market yesterday instead of today - mom found nothing, but always has fun poking around - dad found a movie poster and lots of junk food ! HGTV was there again filming for FLEA MARKET FLIP !

Two days of stormy weather coming up (what a way to end vacation) - but it'll force mom to relax and mentally prepare for back to school. It looks like they'll be a/c days too - 90+ temps for the first time ALL summer !

  Hi Chipper
Thanks for liking my face painting.
Hope to see you at the milonga.
It's Saturday and we have some sun! In between the rain, our temps have been between 75 and 78 with humidity. That's right, you heard 78!!!! Ahhhh, it was nice to bask in the sun for a while before the next rain came. The only downside of the weekend is the bike people are back! Yes, it's the DALMAC weekend. They start in Lansing and end up on the Mackinac Bridge (3rd longest suspension bridge of 5 miles) walk on Sunday. There are three routes with 1500 bicycles on each route. Our scenic road is one of them, lucky us. Just try to get down our curvy wooded road with them riding 2,3,and sometimes 4 across! They will all be gone on Monday and back to normal around here. Meanwhile I'm enjoying what sun and warm temps we have. Then tonight is the fun Milonga Fair. See you there.
Hugs

TiPaul races Lightning past the lead and cuts sharp hopin' to turn the varmits some, Pookie let's out a YIP, and dashes round the herd to the south, turnin' the lead steers back towards our camp. Mind ya it was a better idea then havin' them chargin' long-horns divin' into the water have crazy-like. Dixie cut into the dust and thunderin' hooves, and roped a cow pullin' the rope taunt he backed her up and a number of steers took her lead and swung wide to the north, and retraced their poundin' hoof prints.. Strawberry and Sugar where slappin' their hats on the horses flanks to pick up even more speed, as the herd continued to run wild. " YEEEEHAWWW! Chyna's voice could be heard over the herd, They're turnin' back"
Well on any other day, them cows changin' their ornery minds mighta been a good idea, but right now it wasn't. A bullet whipped by, knockin' my hat clear off my head. "WOW, that was close"
"Sorry Boss," Baxter yelled, " I missed my target"
"I wanta hope so, especially if'n I'm that target" I couldn't help but laugh at all the fun we was havin'. Then I heard them cows bearing down towards us. I sprung for my horse Cutter and barrelled out to meet them Steers face-on, Sky and Jenny-Lynn kept me covered, as Sweetpepper, Little Peep, and Cydney rode out to join me. " We have to make them turn back into themselves. We'll have to hold tight and make'em veer to the right. That oughta slow them down enough to get' em back under control. With thousand pound of cows, headin straight at us, I was sure prayin' my plan would work. The lead cow came right towards us, the herd on her heals. I let off a couple shots into the air and she turned, her side brushin Cutter as she headed in the direction I had wanted.
"Yippe! It worked, I never doubted ya Boss" Little Peep yelled riding after the slowin' herd.
I whipped my forehead, counted my blessin's then rode back into the gun-fight. Jumpin clear of Cutter as I dove for the side of the chuckwagon.
"Ready Boss" BonBon whispered," Let's go gettum." I let out a whistle that brought JL, Sky, Kiddo, Jolie, Finnegan crawlin and weavin' their way to join me back of the dragon-Wagon. Each picked up a big metal bucket, and snuck off into the thick brush .I followed, my bucket in hand. Movin' silent like,we made our way to where we had Bart and his ratty bunch of rustlers pinned-down. Gettin as close as we could, we stopped, watchin a spell. Then Jenny-Lynn headed into the camp. Bart drew on her but seein' JL. he lowered his riffle. Jenny lifted her wing as if to stretch and we set sail with the special-surprise BonBon and Snowflake concocted. Honey, molasses, and red hot chili peppers land with a splat coatin' all them rustlers from head to toe. Bart stumbled, and landed square onto an ant hill. What fun!

  Hi Chipper
Today I found a neat place to perch. Its on top of the refrigerator and I can see everything from there. I tossed a few things off the refrigerator and then I chewed on moms grocery list she has hanging on the side. Mom had to rewrite a few things down again since it was chewed on. Mom checked the coupons in side and said it was good they were ok yet and gave me the “eye“. I am thinking this refrigerator perch isn’t going to last long though with mom. “If your alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you want a hug I’ll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me. Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Heya, Chipper!
First, I want to apologize for not blogging last night, but Mom kept trying to login and she got the "This page is not available" error message every time she tried. She finally gave up around 10:30 PM. She emailed tech support and Crystal, who said that she would let the team know, but everyone is pretty much out for the holiday. Today I was able to login, and hope you like my face painting picture! Auntie Denise really did a smashing job, don't you think?

And yes indeed, I did get to the farmers market today! Got my usual compliments from folks who thought I was just the best ever!! And I flirted with Paula super big time, so that was pretty neat.

We had heavy rain before we left, but the sun came out and the skies were blue, so Mom and I hurried over to the market while it was not raining. Started when we pulled into the driveway of the apt. Great timing!!

Cya at the Milonga!
Your buddy,
Kaji

It's good to have a name for your team. That's what attracts lots of players.
It take's about a month to get it together. Just put it out there on the calender page and send out personal invites to friends and new BC members.

See you at the milonga
