I come from a BIG flock! I was born in a flock with my brothers and sisters but there were also other kinds of birds where I used to live and even some other animals. One day this girl came into my house and my flock leader took one of my flockmates out. They were getting along okay, but I was getting bored so I started wolf-whistling and caught the girl's attention (hehehe) and so she asked to see me and well here I am.. Awards

Hi! My name is Jack Sparrow II

I am a Normal grey Cockatiel from Bolton, MA.

Ehhhh I don't go for that cutesy stuff. Except I will answer to Captain or Pirate.

9 years old   M

Normal grey Cockatiel

Paper (to chew not to eat), millet, and crackers. Lately I've been trying that "healthy" stuff like carrots, pellets, whole wheat bread, and string beans which are okay, but I miss my seeds.

On my owner's shoulder, arm, keyboard, or homework.

THE BUDGIES!!! DO NOT EVEN GET ME STARTED. Do you know what they do?!? Okay, so I'm sitting there on my human's arm and she's scratching me and then suddenly Tiki will FLY ONTO HER OTHER ARM. Then sure enough along comes Beaker like a sheep and lands on my human's head, then climbs down RIGHT NEXT TO ME. And then Tiki FLIES IN MY FACE. grrr!!! And believe me, I've tried ignoring them, I've even tried hissing and pecking at them. They just won't take a hint.

She pets me and gets me fun toys like this pirate pinata! And she feeds me healthy food because she knows I won't eat it from a bowl or anything.

I love chewing paper, especially notecards my human "studies" with..

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 and Lucy

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.

  Hi again
Hi again. Your mommy should try to buy you a harness like the Aviator so you can go everywhere. I have the Feather Tether but Mommy says that it's the worst cause it makes my feathers go everywhere, and she wanted to get me a Flight Suit bird diaper thing but they only have a lanyard (call that a leash?!?) that is attached by a strip of velcro. I don't like the harness but it is great cause I get to snuggle mommy more.

At first I would run way from it because I don't like the leash (hey, I don't like not being able to run free) so she put the harness on me and then hooked the leash on. Then I would run away when I saw the leash coming towards me. Then I let her hook it on and took off! She had to let go so I wouldn't strangle myself and I won! But then she said she'd walk without me so I ran out from under the couch and was a good bird.

Even when it's cold out my Mommy likes being able to take me around the halls in the apartment so I can see new people and things. That way I stay used to the harness. One time the fire alarm went off so she stuffed the harness on me and put me down her coat. It was a false alarm though.

Come visit me, Bella (Cinn. Whiteface) & Beauford.

  I like cuddles
Actually, I love them! I love my pellets! You should try them again. If they taste bad maybe you can convince your human to switch brands? And yeah, paper is a lot of fun but I'm not allowed to chew on mommy's artwork especially cause some of the materials on the paper could be bad if I ate them. I don't have a tail either, well I do but there's not much left. Mommy took the scissors to my flight feathers cause I can't steer; I can land now though so I am finally growing some feathers back on my duck butt. I'd trade you some sunflower seeds though, as my mix has a bunch but I just ignore them cause they don't taste so good. Mommy thinks I am too active and I should eat more seeds in my diet but if she really meant it she would buy me some millet spray or some flax seeds and not that funny mix with all those other seeds in it.

  Hello jack,
I once knew a tiel,It sounds like a beginning of a joke but it isn't, that use to imitate a house use to take care of him, when the human flock went on vacation.Every morning he would wake up the flock with the alarm sound.Those two weeks we had him he woke up the human flock and the birdie flock.Oh!Yes, I live with two conures.How he learnt this, is his mom and dad said,when they would leave the house , I would get out of my cage and fly around .I would set off the house alarm .I did it so much now I can do the alarm sound.
He did It as soon as the day would break.It was quite an experience for our's a vote for you Jack.

Come visit me, Jolie.

  Hi Jack
I agree with you paper is fun to chew on.Mom puts Paper Towels on the bottom of our cage and we usally pull them out and drop them on the floor ha ha ha. She says that they help keep the bottom of the cage clean why she deep cleans it weekly anyway but she always put more Paper towels on the bottom. Hereis a vote U and have a great week Wing Hugs From Yugi & Sam

Hello there Jack! Tilly here. You look just like my cousin Crash. I'm sorry to hear about your tail feathers! I'm growing in some new ones of my own, and they're really itchy which is making me a little bit cranky right now. At least my mom still loves me!

Come visit me, Gilbert & Tilly.
