My Mommy told me she use to have cockatiels, and when they passed away Mommy would always replace the bird with another one. It was a while and Mommy wanted another one. One day when she came home from work, I was home. Daddy picked me out, and I fell in love with my Mommy right away..

Hi! My name is Gizzy

I am a Cinnamon Mutation Cockatiel from Manchester, PA.

My real name is Gizmo, but I go by Gizzy and Gizzybird. Gizmo is to formal for me.

10 years old   F

Cinnamon Mutation Cockatiel

Oh my treats, the only thing I like is plain cooked pasta. I hate everything else except for my seed. Never did like anything else, and it is too late to learn to eat anything else. Once in a while Mommy gives me mellet spray, that I'll tear into. But anything else it lays in my cage. Veggies and fruit YUCK!!! Oh and I forgot, Daddy has this great cheese. When I see he gets this cheese out, until it is unwrapped, I'm on the table helping him. Then I get to help him eat it. Boy do I love his cheese.

I love to sit on Mommy's shoulder and help her do things in the kitchen. When we watch TV I sit on Mommy's leg and run up to her chest, put my head down under her chin and I know I will get my head rubbed.

When Mommy tires to put me back in my cage when I want to stay out and "clean the kitchen floor looking for salt and crumbs". Also, Mommy won't let me sit too long on the top of my cage, cause she thinks I get an attitude. That I act like I'm Queen of all the birds my Mommy has. Mommy won't let me have toys in my cage other than one stupid one. Guess it is because I fall in love with my toys too much and Mommy gets tired of me laying eggs.

I love my Mommy best, unless Daddy has cheese. Then I love my Daddy more. When the cheese is gone, I'm back over to Mommy. She also lets me sit on the back of her kitchen chair at supper. I like to go down Mommy's arm, check out the food on her plate (which I don't even like) then go back up to Mommy's shoulder and then back to the chair. I'll do this a few times, and you know, nothing changes on the plate other than it becomes empty.

I love to sit on my one perch and watch the TV and Mommy in hopes she will get me out. I also have to keep an eye on my neighbor TJ (another cockatiel). Just can't let him out of my site. We can't get close to each other, but we can be out at the same time. He watches out for me, and I watch out for him. I act like a dog. If I'm in the mood, I'll follow Mommy around the house just like a "little dog". I follow so close that she has to watch that I don't get stepped on. Boy when she hits my tail feathers, I send out a yell...then my Mommy jumps and comes to me to make sure I'm fine. I like it too when TJ is out to play with me, however; I don't let him get to close. When he gets into my area, I'll nip at him to move. But it is funny, TJ and I can't be out of each others sight. If I'm in the kitches and TJ is in the living room, we will yell for each other until TJ get to the kitchen. Then when it is time to go back to our cages, we play "run away from Mommy" and make her chase us around the kitchen. Going under the table and chairs is the best, cause Mommy can't get us..

If I treat my Mommy nice and show her that I love her, she will pet me for hours. Wrap your Mommy around your little piggy, and she will love you all the time..

Hi Friends, news from our flock. Cotton Ball, speaking. I am getting my beak color now. Mom thinks I might be a girl. St.Patrick is lovin' the BOTW attention. He is drivin' Fortune crazy. He pecks on the PC all day and teases Fortune by (disobeying??) his nightly call for all to go to sleep. hehe. Mom tried to get new pics but Lonnie kept flying.. he likes the one on his page. Slate and Mica are chewing up paper. Yesterday, Fortune took a walk and played with the kids down the block. Well, it is time for LIMERICK OF THE DAY: An Amazon friend of ours Paco, stopped at a cafe in Morocco. His yellow crown down, he said with a frown,no where can I find just one taco.....The Lovies are chewing off your vote button as we speak.....TTFN....

Kicking that vote off your page.I went to the Vet to day and he said everything was good that I was a very lucky bird to beable to keep my leg and claw. It was everyones prayers and crossign their wings for me and giving me the courage and strength to get better. My family and I would like to thank everyone. Well I did it Mommy and I came home and she set my big cage up and no more hospt cage. Boo tryed to come over and I kick his blue tail feathers right off my cage. I even bit at him no way is he coming over to my cage for a long time. Mommy told him to give me a few days to get use to being in my old cage again. His sweet little dark eyes are not going to work on me he can look sad and lonly I don't care. Even though he is still cute I'm still mad at him. The weather here was pretty descent. Well I better kick it out of here for now Hugs Pita :)

  Hi Gizzy
Your relationship with TJ sounds just like mine with brother Maxi. I am almost 3 and Maxi is 15 1/2 yrs old. I also have laid eggs and I laid them in Maxi's cage, not mine. So when I sit on my eggs I won't let Maxi into his cage to eat. He can just into my cage and eat. Mom tried putting my eggs in my cage but I made her put them back in Maxi's cage for me to sit on. She is hoping that I will soon tire of sitting on my eggs. I will give up my eggs when I am good and ready to and not a minute before. Stick to your feathers Gizzy with your eggs. Don't let any one boss you around. Left a vote for you. Have a great weekend. Kacey

  Hello Gizzy and JoJo
Not Good News Mommy took me to the vet this afternoon and I have lost all feeling in my toes/foot. The Vet told mommy this is not good that he might have to Amputate part of my leg and all my foot. Mommy was holding me and started crying when the Vet told her this. He assured her that with some ajustments I can live a happy normal life with just one foot. He told mommy he will give it 2 more weeks to see if the feeling comes back in my toes and foot; if not I have to have the surgery. Mommy cryed all the way home and when she got home she told Daddy, Grandpa and my skin brothers. I have a Red splint for Christmas. Well I better Hop off now. Here is a vote for you ~~ Hugs Pita ;)

Mommy thought she was ok but when she tryed to stand up she could only on one leg. Mommy took her to the vet and they said it was broke. so they set it and put a neat little pink splint on her leg. She has to wear a collar around her neck at times casue Pita trys to chew the splint off. When Mommy and Daddy was putting it on her cause she was being naughty pita called mom STUPID she learned this from Mommy cause mommy will say stupid dogs at times to us and now Pita will say stupid. Mommy can not get mad at her cause she pick i tup from mommy.
