Mom's 15 year old greencheek conure passed away and she wanted a new friend to love. She came into the bird store and saw me still in the incubator, semi-featherles- s. I popped up my head and looked at her. She said "What a cute conure. I want him to be my new baby"..

Hi! My name is Rippy, a yellow-sided conure

I am a Conure from Indian Trail, NC.

Rip, The Ripmeister, Ripster, Cutie.

9 years old   M

Conure

Harrison's power treats, hot pepper nutriberries, seed, papaya, banana, apple, orange, snap peas and my new favorite - blueberries. Yum!!!

Happy hut in cage. Down dad's shirt with my head poked out so I can see what's going on.
On the bed with mom and dad. Sitting on mom's thumb and leaning back into her hand.


Having my tail touched and going to the vets.

Neck and cheek rubs are the best and mom and dad coo the cutest things in my ear!

I like to go down shirts and talk in the dark. I love taking a bath in the sink with a stream of water hitting my back. I flap and flap and flap - nothing's dry when I'm done! I also talk all the time and say really funny things..

Ready? Let's go!!!!.

  Hi
I bet my mom would love to work with your mom. She loves animals. She hasn't gotten any scales yet but she will sometime in the future. This are kinda tight around here right now. She gives us basically the same diet as you. We eat the Zupreem pellets and vegetables. I don't like bananas. Mom tries all the time to get me to eat them but I won't. I love apples and carrots. I don't like to much other than that except my pellets. Thanks for stopping by again. Hugs, Pebbles

  Hi
Hello Rippy! Mom doesn't know how much I weigh. I haven't been weighed since I was a little thing. I'm not to old now. You sure are pretty. Did your mom get you in NC? Mom went to NC Saturday to get Kiwi. She came from Wendall. Long drive mom said. Kiwi is our new fister she has a couple of pictures on Charlies page. Mom hasn't fixed her a blog yet. Heres a vote for you thanks for stopping by. Good nite, Hugs Pebbles

Good Morning my friend. What a last couple of days it has been around here. Mommy was ill!:( Oh no! Daddy and skin bro might feed us but not lavish us love or attention just like Mommy. We almost had to go on birdy strike to get her back. But that nasty flu bug finally flew the coop. Don't tell Mommy but we missed the gkids, too. Thanks for stopping by and voting for us even if we could not get back to you right away. Hopefully no other obstacles will get in our way of beaking the vote thingy for you and leaving birdy hugs and feather kisses behind. Have a great day:)

Good day my friend. It is good to have mommy back home! She was gone all weekend. We birds had Daddy and skin brother to take good care of us but no computer time. :( bummer Mommy had a great time in St Louis, MO learning about leadership from Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady and others. Now it is back to us birds, the rest of the family, and work. Beaked the vote thingy for you and left birdy hugs and feather kisses behind. Hope you have a great day!

I am an African Grey from NJ and I am trying to be BOTW.

Here's a vote for you!My sister lil Bird looks just like you!!

Good morning my friend. It is a cold one again here in Wisconsin. Hope you are staying warm where you are. I was 'helping' Mommy with her paperwork yesterday. I had great fun. I don't know why Mommy was upset when I helped myself to an envelope or two. Mommy went and got her feathers trimmed yesterday. Funny, she did not squack. I do self trimming. Mommy is working to help me stop that habit. Well, I got to fly so I beaked the vote thingy for you and leave you birdie hugs. Have a wonderful day in the Lord. Sassy

  Hello Rippy,
Wow your cold too! I think we had -18 yesterday , I am glad mom bought me a heated perch. It sounds like your mom keeps you busy. Mom started with me last night, I think she thinks its time for me to get educated. I have to make my mom change clothes too, especially when she's picked up some hours at the nursing home. I have a difficult time perching on that uniform top and can't wait until she changes. Stay warm spring is coming.

  Voting reminder and a vote for you
Hi everyone, SweetPepper here. There is a campaign being run for my brother tiel Maxi for BOTW. He is 15 1/2yrs old and has never won anything in his entire birdie life. My sister Kacey and I have won contests and even had our pictures published in magazines. We would love it for Maxi to win something. He is a senior bird and one never knows how long a senior bird will live. He is in good health but so was my brother Digger and he died suddenly without warning. So if everyone could stop in to his page each and everyday and vote for him I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, SweetPepper and Kacey

  Hello Rippy,
You are right us yellows have to stick together and here's a vote for you. My mom just discovered the sink technique just the other day, I think we will be doing that more often, thanks to you. You can really say I lot of words, I hope when I am your age I can. I like going down my mom's shirt, she always puts me there when she has to step outside, yesterday we fed the wild birds. Mom wanted to make sure they had something to eat, it's suppose to get real cold the next few days like a high of 0. Do you like millet, I do not and mom thinks that's strange since it suppose to be like candy for us birds?
I'll be back to visit.

  Hi Rippy
I came across your name on Crocus' page so I decided to stop in and leave you a vote and hope we can become great friends also. My mom fell in love with some green cheeks at a bird fair back in Nov, she got to hold all of them, the normals, a couple of yellowsided and a couple of pinaapple green cheeks. I think she likes the yellowsided and pineapples even though they are a bit more expensive. Maybe one day she will get one but for now its me, a senegal, and 2 noisy tiels that keep the family pretty busy. Mom would love a lot of birds but knows it wouldn't be fair to them, they wouldn't get the proper attention they deserve. I hope you stop in for a chat and to visit my fibs pages. We are running a campaign to get my brother Maxi elected BOTW, all you do is to stop in to his page and vote for him each day. I would love it if you could do that and then pass the word to all your new birdie friends that you make here on the BC. Take care and hope to here from your pretty little self. SweetPepper and flock
