Mum had been looking for a bird for a long time. She finally decided to get one. After looking online, she decided to purchase me from an owner who could no longer care for me instead of purchasing an African Grey or macaw. I sure am glad she did!.

Hi! My name is Sheldon

I am a Sun Conure from Hudson, WI.

Sheldon is a cute enough name, right?

4 years old   M

Sun Conure

I occasionally sneak some yumyums from my mum - I love anything with apples!

More like only hangout spot... My mum's shoulders!

Anything that looks like a stick!

She puts up with my constant need for attention. What's the point of owning a bird if she doesn't get to hold me and hear me squawking 24/7?

My favorite word? Bigfoot. I don't care what you ask me, there is a good chance I am going to respond with "Bigfoot.".

  Hi Sheldon
Thank you so much for the condolence messages for my Mione. And thank you for voting her Bird of the Day on the 23rd. It made me smile seeing my little angel in the spotlight. I miss her so much, as do Bella and Dobby. Especially Bella. :( They loved each other so much. I know my baby is in a better place up at the Rainbow Bridge with all of our other angels.

With love-
Momma Maddy, and Angel Hermione

  Hello Sheldon
Good to hear from you again. The only test my Dad studies for are eye test & blood tests. So far he has passed all of them. LOL

Has your Mom signed on to the BC bird list? Its for when BC shuts us down sometime this year. If not & she wants to be on it she can send your name, page number, what kind of bird you are and a home address(if she wants to) & a e mail address to bckissingbooth@aol.com. I will forward it to the person who takes care of that list.

Hello. My name is Miss Big Baby (Ms BB for short). Mr. Dixie gave me your name & page #.

I have a daily adventure that I could post to your page if you would like me to. My page is #11078.

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Sheldon! How's things, cutie? I haven't been on BC in a couple of weeks. I'm sorry to hear that you had your feathers trimmed. I don't have to put up with that, since for some reason I just can't fly. Probably too many peanuts...lol... My claws don't grow very fast either, so I just go to the vet once a year to get them ground and get a checkup. Which is ok by me, I just HATE getting toweled. (I tend to bite anyone except my human, and even she isn't safe all the time...heehee...) Hope you enjoyed your day! Cya...

Come visit me, Maxie WonderBird -Thanks for BOTD! & 10 Grand HOF Club - Welcomes DIXIE!!.

Oatie walks in and drops of a zucchini bread off. Just wanted to give you a loaf. It's got sunflower seeds in it too.
Hope you're having a wonderful week. Yeah, I know it just started but don't know when I'll see ya. It's been good weather except for Saturday when we got snow. And now they say probably the next couple of days we should get snow again.
Hope you don't get any tornadoes or snow your way for a while yet. I worry about all our bird friends in Ill.
Gotta fly for now. Hope to see you soon.

  Hi Sheldon,

How are you? It's your Friend, Cheyenne. You asked me how big I was. I'm the size of a Green Cheek Conure but a little fatter. We may be small in size but we're big in personality. We really think that we're the size of a Macaw because we are not afraid of anything. Hey, one time I went Beak to Nose with one of my Mom's Siamese. She has two, one named Koda and one named Marcus. Anyway, Mom was cleaning my cage and when she turned around yes I was Beak to Nose with the one named Koda. She screamed and that big sissy ran but not me. Mom looked at me and said Are you crazy Cheyenne you could have been lunch? I looked at her as if to say But I wasn't was I Mom LOL! Even my Sister, Oz the big Pink One is afraid of me. I think she thinks I'm crazy LOL. Here's a vote for you. Stop around anytime. Bye for now.

Winghugs,
Cheyenne

Come visit me, Parker, Silver, APACHE IS SO HAPPY SNOWFLAKE SAID YES ON 04/27/14, Oz & Cheyenne said YES to her Jedi 5/3/14.

  Hi Sheldon
Since its going to be Thanksgiving in a few short weeks I think that we are all going to meet in the kitchen and start preparing some things for the Thanksgiving feast we will be having here at the Castle! We will go shopping for some of the supplies and then come back to the castle and cook and bake them up! The first thing on our list is some Apple Stuffing!
APPLE STUFFING


¾ cup of butter
¾ cup of milk
1/3 cup of chopped celery with leaves
1 cup of chopped onion salt to tast
1/2teaspoon of marjoram
½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon of ground black pepper
8 cups of soft bread cubes
2 cups of washed,quartered,pared and diced apples

1. In a saucepan mix together the butter,milk,celery,onion,salt,marjoram,cinnamon and pepper; cook over low heat until the vegetables are tender.
2. Blend the bread cubes,and apples.
3. Lightly toss the seasoned,melted butter with the bread mixture.
4. Cool the stuffing completely.
5. Stuff the turkey just before roasting
6. Leftover stuffing can be baked in a covered baking dish in the oven with the turkey during the last half hour of roasting.

We'll all go shopping for all the ingredients and then we can come back and make up enough for everyone to share!
Wishing you a great day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses! Love,King Dixie

  Hi Sheldon
There's so much to do here with all the gardens and the BC Lake not to mention the whole castle inside itself!
Oh you should see us when its bath time! Mom has to leave me on my perch while she brushes her teeth because I jump off her shoulder and get right in the sink and she had no idea one night and I just slid right into the sink just as she was getting ready to spit and she got me right on my back,it all happened so fast,so now I'm banned from the bathroom when she's brushing her teeth! I love to take a bath but only when I want a bath! All summer we get a bath out on the deck so we can dry off in the warm sunshine! My frother Kallie loves getting sprayed and he even tries to take a shower with his water bottle! You can come to the castle and hide there,your sweet Mom will never find you,there are just way too many rooms to have to look into there!
Wishing you a great day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses! Love always,King Dixie

  Hi Sheldon,

Welcome to Bird Channel and I think you're going to like it here. My name is Cheyenne and I'm a Meyer's Parrot. I'm so glad your Mom rescued you and you're now in your Forever Home just like my Sister, Oz (Rose Breasted Cockatoo). Mommy is her 3rd owner and she says that Oz is now in her Forever Home. Mom calls me her Miss Attitude Bird just cause I want what I want when I want it & cause I would like to have ALL of her attention ALL of the time. So what's wrong with that LOL? Stop around sometime and see me and those other ones in my Flock. Here's a vote for you handsome. Bye for now.

Winghugs,
Cheyenne

Come visit me, Parker, Silver, APACHE IS SO HAPPY SNOWFLAKE SAID YES ON 04/27/14, Oz & Cheyenne said YES to her Jedi 5/3/14.
