My mom and dad saw me in Petland and thought I would be a good friend for Calvin, who had lost his mate of 7 years a few months earlier. When they brought me home, Calvin started making cooing noises right away! We've been inseparable ever since. My mom loves my little pink feet and my pink beak, and my dad named me Silky because he says that is what my feathers feel like!. Awards

Hi! My name is Silky

I am a Cockatiel from Brooklyn, NY.

Seeeeeeellllllk- eeeeeyyyyyyy

12 years old   F


A spray bath is always nice. I love my seeds, and if some lettuce shreds and zucchini are in it -- all the better!

I love to sit on top of the drapes in the living room and sing. I also like the top of my cage -- I can see what's going on from there.

I don't have any! My mom says I am the sweetest little bird in the world.

I love EVERYTHING about my owners! They feed me, play with me, buy me toys, and give me baths. What's not to like haha?

I am devoted to my cranky, old mate -- Calvin. That seems odd to anyone who knows Calvin. :) I am also very, very tiny for a grown bird -- but I am healthy and my mom says that's all that matters!.

Good things come in small packages..

We were just at Dusty's page and noticed your name on his page so we thought you were friends. We thought you'd like to know that your little friend, Dusty flew away on Nov. 14th, in case you'd like to pay his Mom a visit. She's very sad. Hugs, Daisy

Come visit me, Finnegan - 5K...YIPPEE!! THANK YOU FRIENDS!, Daisy - R.I.P. - BOTW 9/17-9/23/07 & Miss Lucy Blue - FAREWELL TO MY BELOVED FRIENDS.

I hope you had a great weekend! Did you do anything exciting? I got to taste warm apples....yummy! Mom said she might give us some with our dinner tonight. I cannot wait. Warm apples....yummy! I hope you and Calvin have a great day. Tell Calvin I said "HI" and that I gave him a vote...and, of course, a vote for you, cutie! Kisses! KIWI

  Howdy Silky,
Thanks for coming by to visit with me. You are so lucky that you get to live with your man. I have a boyfriend here on the channel but I have never got to meet him. It is a long distance relationship. he he he! I don't think my momma will ever take me Texas so I don't think I will ever get to meet him but he sure is a sweetie. His name is Otis. He visits me every day. I keep telling him that there are houses for sale on our road but his momma doesn't like snow so I guess they won't be moving here to Pennsylvania any time soon. he he he! You sure must be a great gal to deal with a grumpy man like Calvin. I know Tootles thinks Calvin is the greatest but he is grumpy too. he he he! Well, cutie, I must be going. Thanks for visiting. KIWI P.S. I always leave votes for all my friends even if I don't mention it.

Come visit me, Echo, Tootles, Kiwi & Moose E. Moose.

Hot peppers....yummy! You know what the best thing is about hot peppers, after I eat them I give mom kisses and she gets hot lips. I love it! he he he! Mom tells me to stay away when I eat hot peppers but sometimes she forgets and then I get her good! As a matter of fact, I made her lips nice and hot last night. he he he! I am glad to hear that you have a good man who keeps all the big birds away from you. he he he! You get cuter every time and come and visit you. Take care, cutie! TOOTS

Come visit me, Echo, Tootles, Kiwi & Moose E. Moose.

What a beautiful bird you are! Welcome to the flock. Don't you love it when humans appreciate our lovely feathers? My Mom says that's what hugs are for although I prefer treats personally. It's so great that you've got a pal to hang out with! Here's a vote for you!

Come visit me, Turtle Bird.

You look just like my mommy's first cockatiel...Poshie. She is now 20 years old. Can you believe that? I had to come meet you. I am Jacinta's friend, Tootles. Wow! You sure sound like a sweetheart. Mom wants to know if I can come take behavior lessons from you....hey, that wasn't nice. I am going to have to nip momma for that one. he he he! Well, cutie, welcome to the channel. TOOTLES

Come visit me, Echo, Tootles, Kiwi & Moose E. Moose.
