She was in the pet store for about six months he got her from the breeder at about six months and she was "Escape Artist", whatever lock he'd put on the cage, he'd find her out, in the morning waiting to greet them. So we have a large cage and travel prepared w/locks to keep her in the cage when we travel!.

Hi! My name is Kiwi

I am an Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet from Kalamazoo, MI.

Postman, Postie, "Wee-nut" Kaa-wee, Sassafras, Wa Weep-Bo Peep

11 years old   F

Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet

"Millet, and corn on the cob,peas, strawberries, blueberries, sweet potato,almonds, apples,carob chips. Any human food I can steal.

On her playstand, on top of her cage, on top of the desk hutch on my padded pillow mom made me if I don't have to chase Bailey the cat off of it.

She doesn't like to be scolded for being naughty, she likes to talk back, when you try and scold her. Tipping her treat dishes when she wants whatever I'm eating.

She spoils me! She lets me shower with her and cuddles with me. She's always nice to me even though I'm not always the nicest to her.

She loves to crawl into my dad's flannel shirts, or t-shirt and go to sleep. She also clucks whenever my dad comes near her. She'll whine like a baby if she want's attention, she says "I love you Pretty Bird", "I love you", "HI", and she clucks when she's happy. She loves the strings on pants that tie. She likes to make different sounds for things she wants...and she likes to nudge you if she wants something! She'll give you kisses for any food she wants. Her favorite place to play/sleep is a cardboard box filled with toys. Showing the cat she's the boss..

"I love you pretty bird"

"Cluck, Cluck, Cluck"

Well our Mommy was looking for a Michigan bird club to join, and we couldn't find any! So she decided to start her own. There would be a monthly meeting, but we are not sure of the fixed dates yet. She didn't want to put adds in magazines yet, so she looked on Bird Channel for some Michigan bird people. We blogged a few of them and are hoping for a good turn-out. You don't have to pay to join, so we hope you'll join! You can blog us about your choice! - Theo and Keko

Come visit me, Keko & Theo.

VOTE4U, Just a quick fly bye (walk by), Mom's heading out till later & she won't let me use her laptop by myself, I just don't understand??? Guess she's afraid cause I pick off all the silver tabs, he,he,he. Boy somethings she just can't take a joke about! Mom keep trying to get me to play in & inder clothes, towels, etc. but that scares me, no way! No shower today, Mom says it's a little chilly, huFF, so I say no touchy!! My 1 day of a weak moment isn't getting Mom to far at the scratchy's but she keeps trying. Good for her, cause I do like it just not the hands. She's just gott figure a way without the hands... she'll think of something. Mom says my cage is getting yucky, whatever that is and she wants to hose it clean tomorrow outside, so looks like I might get a patio trip again, YEAH!!! Gotta fly/walk!! XXXOOO

Another Vote & another Note! Such cute phots! Thanks for the info, I love hearing ideas to do. I haven't tried the sleaves & shirts to sleep in but Mom got me a "Birdie Bunker Bed" but I will only bite it, no going in yet. Your right the website is really nice, that's where Mom started before she got me. My New word is "What cha doin" I guess since Mom yells it out to me from around the house all the time, I caught on. I won't let M & D touch my feet but now Mom kisses my toes when I grab on the front of my cage from the inside, I LOVE IT!! I think she does, too. Talk to you soon, stay warm.

Come visit me, LOUIE Hi! Pals, LIBBY LU - Hi Pals! & LACIE - Hi Pals!!.

  NEW FRIENDS!!
Kiwi, You are a cutie! I live in Fla but my Dad is from Sterling Hgts, MI. I understand why the heated perch. I got a Birdie Bed but not sure about it yet, I bite it but won't get in it. You don't bite anymore? You really sound well manored and do fun things. I'm gonna check out Dad's shirts for a nap! We IRN's usually take some extra love & patience & I think that's what probably gives us our special & quirky personalities. I've learned to be pretty good with Mom, except when I forget(ha,ha). I'm lucky Mom is smitten with me. It took weeks & weeks of Mom's sore fingers but she was persistent so we could enjoy each other. Mom, Dad & I are a perfect match. They had an empty nest & was just what they needed to fill it perfectly!! At least that's what Mom keeps telling me! So you are talking, is it clear? Mom talks to me constantly, so I like talking, too, even if I'm the only one that can understand me. I'm starting to say something that sounds like my name "Louuuuu ieeeeee" Louie! At least, Mom thinks so. I'm only 6 mths old, when did you start talking? I also laugh & whistle, some. My Mom says I sound just like my brother's squeekie toy, his name is Buster, a Bichon, he likes to watch me & bark from the patio door that my cage looks out on. I have a sister - Bunny Rabbit, she's a Chihuahua, very cute but not interested. I love to play with Mom on her bed & climb on her back. Then I nestle on her shoulder, play with her hair & we watch TV at night together. She gives me all kinds of toys & lets me try all different kinds of treats,fruits & veggies.I really like my roasted peanuts in the shell, tearing the shells open is more fun than the nuts. Have you tried them? Do you have anymore photos for us to see? Come & look at my new photos every week. I love looking at the camera, it tastes good, too!

Come visit me, LOUIE Hi! Pals, LIBBY LU - Hi Pals! & LACIE - Hi Pals!!.

  Hi Kiwi!
We would love to see some more pictures of you! You are all green, just like me! What kind of words do you know? I am still a baby so I don't talk very clear yet but I love to mumble to myself and then giggle at my own jokes. Love, Echo

Come visit me, Echo, Raja & Nala.
