I saw an ad on Craigslist, about a little parrot that spent most of his life in a basement with no companionship, he was in a Foster home until a year ago. They said it took a year to encourage him to come out of his cage!.

Hi! My name is Koopa

I am an Amazon from Ashland, KY.

Pedro, is what my Husband calls him

19 years old   M

Amazon

He loves peanuts! And He had his first taste of pomegranate, I think he enjoyed it.

So far he feels safest in and on top of his cage. We Are going to work on that!

Anyone touching him.

She is kind and talks soft to me and she gives me good food and she is going to get me a new nice cage! I'm glad she likes to read Craigslist!

He does the cutest hanging upside down thing! We are still learning about Koppa :).

Look towards tomorrow!.

  Hi Koopa,

How are you doing? It's Parker, the English Budgie. I just wanted to Thank You for stopping by the other day. My Mommy was down in Atlantic City for 3 days and just got back a few hours ago. She said she and her Friends had a lot of fun and she also came home with $50 more than what she left with and that was after eating all her meals out and Gambling. She's happy. Thanks for the compliments. Mommy says that I'm the smartest Bird she's ever had. She didn't care if any of us ever talked or not and ALL of us say at least a few words. Mommy says that's just a plus LOL. Okay, I have to go now cause Mom has to play catch up with the compute. Here's a vote for you. Bye for now.

Thanks for stopping by. Glad to hear that you are making such progress. I know your mom is really excited. You have come a long way! I was wondering how you and Sassy did at the vet. Did you have a good check-up? Did mom find out why Sassy was pulling out her feathers? Please let me know how both of you are doing. I know you like getting letters and when I haven't heard from you and you didn't go on BC I thought something may have been wrong or that you went away. Let me know how everything went with the vet. Hope to hear from you soon. Left you a vote!

Just wanted to stop by and say hello and see how your visit went with the vet yesterday. Hope everything went well. How is Sassy? Did you find out why she is pulling out her feathers? I hope the both of you are doing fine.
Do you give your birds a vitamin supplement ? I give one to Chipper because he won't eat pellets and I checked with the vet and they told me to give him the vitamins.
Please write back and let me know how both the birds are doing. Hope to hear from you soon. Left you a vote!

  Hi Koopa,
So glad to hear you're making progress. It is great that you are coming out of your cage and spending time with your family. You will get used to being handled too. It will take some time. But I think you're doing great and you have come a long way since you got in your new home! Keep in touch and let me know how you're doing. There is nothing new here. I like to come out of my cage too and I stay out for a long time! Thanks for getting back to me. Left a vote!

It's Chipper. I told you I would write to you to see how you are doing this week. I know you also like to receive letters like I do. So how are you coming along? Are you getting used to your new family ? Are you starting to enjoy being handled and coming out of your cage? It does take some time but you will get used to it and you will probably want to come out all the time. I hope your doing well. Please let me know how everything is going.

Well, if the parronts decide to come to Oahu tell them to be sure and stop by to see us. :)

Mom works good with new rescue birds. She just talks to them nicely and be consistant. And when I do something good, she has a high voice alllright!!!

The eggcitement in her voice makes me proud that I did something good. :)

It just takes time is all. Be persistant, everybirdie wants to be loved, but trust must be earned first.

Love & Hugs and a vote.

  The Three Eyed-Scary Monster Adventure
July 11th
Hello to all my friends on Bird Channel. It is yet another sad day as we say "see you later my friends" to Chi Chi(27169) and to Bob White (249789). Both birdies left us for the beautiful Rainbow Bridge leaving both family and friends saddened and missing them.
Little Angel here with "The REST OF THE STORY".
" Finding myself safely on the ground Dixie
wraps his wings around his Little Angel and holds me tightly! Kissing me ever so softly on my beakie he looks into my sweet, but mischievous eyes and tells me just how much he loves me, and that he can't rest for a minute because even the most innocent things I do always turn into something of an adventure! As we Walked down the BC Hill wing in wing Dixie asked me to try to not get into any trouble today. When all the BC birdies reached Dixie's house he took me to where his Mom keeps the baking utensils. "We'll need some very large pie plates," he tells me,"lets look in here. Dixie opens the hutch door and we both peer inside."AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!" Dixie and Little Angel scream as a big three eyed monster glares out of the darkness at them. "Oh Little Angel Dixie pants, what is that monster doing in my Mom's cupboard?" Dixie peers carefully into the blackness then quickly retreats.
" I doooonnnooot know Dixie, but we have to trap it so we can get the pie plates." Little Angel looks carefully into the cupboard as the three eyed monster sits in the darkness watching her. " Ok, let's make a plan. We have to make it come out so we can trap it some how. I wonder what we can use to lure it out?" Little Angel sits down on the floor a safe distance from the open cupboard door with her wing tip on her chin.
A serious look crosses her face as she thinks through this problem. "I've got it Dixie. We can use an apple to draw the monster out, then we can jump on it and hold it still until we can tie it up with this piece of string. ( Little Angel holds up a length of red and white string she found in her back pack)."
"It looks pretty big Little Angel. Maybe we should use a net to trap it? We can take one of my Mom's tea towels and when it sticks it's head out we can drop the towel on it and wrestle it to the floor. Together, we can carry the three- eyed monster outdoors and let it go in the wild.."Dixie and Little Angel stare into the scary, black cupboard..
See you all tomorrow with the REST OF THE STORY
with love and a vote

  Hi koopa. Mom would be happy to answer some questions any time. Every bird is different. You have to take cues from your bird and read there body language. Mom hadppeople say just force me to except attention and some saying wait so you won't destroy all trust. They had me a week and put me in a new cage I was freaked out from that. Then they put me in the living room. Mom would sit and talk and her son would to. Every chance they got. It took a few months I was ok with them but not company or people with hats. It took a few more months before I would take treats from them. They let me out every day. They only way they can pick me up is to use a perch. Some birds aren't cuddle bugs. They can do every thing with me except pet me. They don't know what I went thru in the other homes but hats and hands aren't my favorite things. Mom said if she never gets to pet me at least I have a good home. Some people told her if she had forced me I would have been fine. But she just didn't wanna do that.
Just keep talking and start giving treats then if you feel its right try to touch her or pick her up. If she doesn't feel right she will let you know. Just stay positive and loving. I hope that helps some.
We are still a work in progress but we have lots of love.

Yeah mom got it from mysafebirdstore.com, Auntie Kathie Hahn runs the place and mom won't shop anywhere else.

Auntie Kathie gives it that extra special touch as she sends us toys and candy for mom with every order, she's a sweetheart, yes she is. :)

Check out her sight and tell her that Laka and Pookie from Hawaii sent you. :)

I'm sure she will be delighted. :)

  Hello hope you are having a great day. Im so glad you don't have to be in a basement any more. Ive been thru a lot to. Ive had a lot of homes. Im still a little scared of new things. I love my people but I don't like new people coming in. I love playing on my cagetop it opens to a play gym . I do love new food lol I love to eat. Mom talked to me a lot when I first came home she made sure I was used to her. She said the same thing you did. If im not a cuddly bird that's just fine because I will always have a good home with her. Im just so glad you were found by your new mom she seems so nice. Left a vote Tucker and flock

  Hi Koopa,
Congratulations on winning "Bird of the Day" I am happy for you. You are such a beautiful bird too! I was glad to hear from you. I like getting letters too.
As far as advice, I never had a parrot. I only had small birds. But after I adopted my diamond dove , I noticed when I went by the cage or put my hand in the cage, he seemed frightened. So one day I put my hand in the cage and let him just sit on my hand for a long time . I didn't take him out , I just wanted him to get use to me. The very next day when I put my hand in he didn't seem scared. Now I take him out, hold him and pet him and he seems very content.
I hope this was helpful. My bird is a different type and I don't know what works for parrots. But that was my experience. I'm sure as you work with him, he will bond with you.
Let me know how everything works out. I look forward to hearing from you.

  CONGRATULATIONS ON BOTD Koopa
July 7th
Hi everyone, Little Angel here to tell you the "REST OF THE STORY." Some birdies have asked if I am indeed so mischievous? The a newer is YES. Momma Deb has created our BC personalities based on our true personalities here at home.
"AH, now I remember where I was, "CALICO HELPPPP!!!!!"
"I was stuck up in the upper most branches of that big old Apple Tree on the top of BC Hill. I pulled and tugged, I yanked, and wriggled, but the branch had snagged my new pink hoodie, and it wasn't going to let me go"
"Calico, we need help. We have to find someone to help me get down." Calico thought for a moment before replying.
"I can call Popeye and the Homeland Security and have them bring the Fire truck" Calico looked in her backpack for her cell phone and frantically told the birdie on the other end what the emergency was..."and Little Angle is stuck up in the apple tree again..."
Calico hung up and yelled up into the dense foliage, " Popeye and Jenny-Lynn are on their way, don't worry we'll get you down"
Little Angel answered nervously, " Thank you, I'm getting pretty scared up here"
"As Calico waited for the Fire truck ,along came Kaji, and Lizzie the Dragon out for an afternoon walk in the cool fall sun. " What's ya doin' Calico?" asked Lizzie curious of what Calico was looking at up in the tree.
"Little Angel was picking apples for us, when her hoodie sweater got caught on a branch, and she can't get down"
Lizzie the Dragon thought for a minute and whispered to Kaji," I could burn down the tree and rescue Little Angel' Kaji shook his head,and said, " but if wee burn down the tree, Little angel might get hurt, we have to think of something else." the three birdies stood looking up into the tree as Little Angel began to cry, " OH I might never get down, I might be here forever..."
As Kaji, Lizzie and Calico try to console Little Angel, Raffikki, Polly, Zippy and Cookie Stark came over the top of the hill. Seeing the three birdies looking intently up into the old apple tree, they paused on their walk to investigate...
See you all tomorrow with THE REST OF THE STORY,
with hugs and love

Glad to see that his social life has improved. From that lonely basement, afraid to come out of his cage, now with you he is freely on your shoulder. Has found himself a good home where he feels wanted. Those sad basement days are fading away from him. Craigslist has everything, free pets, job, social life, etc.

  Hi Koopa,

Congrat's on being BOTD. It's your Friend, Oz. Hope you enjoy your Special Day in the Castle as much as I did. Here's a vote for you cutie. Bye for now.

P.S. Tell your Mommy to give you different types of perches for your feet. I have 2 Pink and 2 Blue like concrete type ones (only use 1 at a time in my house) and I also have 2 thicker wooden branch type perches (NOT THE DOWEL TYPE CAUSE THEY SUPPOSINGLY AREN'T GOOD FOR US BIGGER PARROTS). But they also sell rope type perches. The reason you should have different kinds of perches is because it helps to exercise their feet so they don't become arthritic but it also helps with that.
