My husband and I have both had small parrots in the past, and we decided we'd like to get one together. He has had a Quaker, and told me many good things about them, so we wanted to get one. We found a lady here in town who breeds Quakers, and I e-mailed her back and forth for a while, asking questions. We found out she had one baby who had a beak deformity- he had the tip of his beak bitten off when he was hatching! Apparently, the poor beeb had an acrylic tip put on for a while until he was able to crack seed and eat well on his own, and it was removed. He's still eating well and has quite a personality!.

  Hi Cucumber!
I just flew by to say welcome to the Bird Channel! I love your pic! My name is Jingle and I'm new here too. I'm a baby lovebird. My mom says I'm really young because I still have a little black beak. I've only had a page here for a week and already I've met so many nice birds and their parronts. My friend Honey Bun sure was right when he was telling me about how friendly and nice everyone is here. I hope you can come by and visit me and maybe even Honey Bun, too. The other day my moms took Cera, Honey Bun and I to see Santa and have our picture taken. He told us that we'd better be good birds or else he'd give us coal in our stockings. What is coal? Is is good to eat? Here's a vote for you! I hope we can be friends! Feathery baby kisses, Jingle

  Hello
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 ;)
