My daughter works at our local PetsMart and had been hand-feeding the recent cockatiel arrivals. She decided to buy the lutino male in the group and Tiki joined our "zoo". Although Tiki started out as her bird, he soon bonded to me and so has become my bird. We figured this out when he would consistently leave whoever he was with to fly to me when I would enter the room..

She lets me ride on her shoulder while she does her work.

  Hey Tiki...
Bean mash is so yummy and the nice thing is mommy can do just about anything with it. Momma starts off with 15 bean soup dry beans throw away the seasoning not good for birdies. soak the beans and cook then momma adds mixed frozen veggies (fresh can be used) she crushes cuttlebone and mixes that in and sometimes a skinless fresh cooked sweet potato or canned pumpkin then she adds nuts like walnuts, pecans, almonds or peanuts out of the shell. She will add some millet the possibilities are endless and she mixes it up your mommy can add cooked brown rice or whole wheat pasta and cooked egg with egg shells those are yummy. She doesnt have to add all of this momma HAS found tho that the pumpkin or sweet potato helps keep it all together and we tend to like it that way but the rest is your mommys choice. tell her to make as little or as many beans as she wants and it freezes really well. We just started getting it and we LOVE it. Our sister has been eating it for over a year and she just loves it she wont eat much of anything else. Does your mommy make you birdie bread cause that is so yummy too. We get fruity birdie bread (corn bread base) momma said to tell your mommy that if you dont eat the mash right away for her to keep offering it for a few weeks til you get used to seeing it and recognize it as food thats what the vet told her to do with us so she takes our pellets out of our cage in the morning and gives us the mash for a few hours and then switches it out and gives us back our pellets. Hope this helps. We hope that mommy will make you some...Feathered hugs...Willi & Wonka

  Fan me with palm fronds and call me "Your Majesty"
Well the other night my mommies and all of us were sitting on the back patio and momma brought a big zipper bag of almonds. I almost fainted when I saw so many I dont think I have ever been surrounded by so many glorious nuts before. So she places me on my perch and just starts feeding them to me. I had to say my version of please and she JUST handed me my coveted almond. I felt my heart tremor a few times cause momma would reach in the bag for a almond and then in all my horror I watched as she fed all 3 dogs MY nuts. Can you EVEN imagine? Then my mommies were having coffee and they use pink sugar and momma was putting almonds in the empty wrappers for me to forage out. The sweetness really adds to the flavor of the nut. Tonight we were out on the patio and momma gave me pasta and sauce. It was so nice and all I had to do was look cute and show up!!! Momma says next to her I am "Queen B" Willi and Wonka are both doing so good mommy put Wonkas bachelor pad next to Willis so momma covers them up with a big sheet and they get to sleep close together. Momma has been observing them and it appears they really like each other but not in close proximity (what is that word *giggle*) they can sit on top of the cage but they like to be at differant ends when they get to close they fight and Willi starts it most of the time. Im sure glad I dont have a sister (see I am a Your Majesty) Wonka is playing with his toys now and sings all the time sometimes I cant even hear my self squawk! Momma gave them treat sticks for the first time and they destroyed them. Wonka has to wear his designer collar for another week then momma will see how he does without it. He is healing very nicely so my mommies are very happy. Thank you to all our friends for your caring and support. We love all of you...Birdie beak kisses...Knuckles

  Hi Tiki...
Hello Tiki Willi and Wonka here we have the same friend Bigun and we thought we would fly by to say hello. We have only been in our home for 2 months we came right from the breeders but momma cant seem to get us to eat ppl food and we see you like lots of it any suggestions? We get all natural pellets and seed at night momma sticks bean mash that she gives our Grey sister but we dont mess with that she has tried tator tots and veggies and nuts (we like nuts) momma hasnt tried the nutriberries because our sister doesnt like them so she hasnt spent the money to buy them again. Maybe the Santa stork will bring some. I also learned from your profile that there is a baldness gene in the lutinos momma sure hopes I dont go bald. It is very nice to meet you and we hope we can be friends...Feathered hugs and a vote...Willi & Wonka

  Thanks so much for the vote. It feels great meeting new friends especially since I've been passed around a bit. I was starting to worry no would love me like my "now and forever" family. I'm not shy at all. I'll try to love anyone and everyone, unless I'm feeling a bit grumpy.
Be a good birdie! Rudy (red-lored amazon)
