Meet my birthday present. I had Blue for a while and as it happens to so many of us, one was not enough. My research narrowed to an African Grey or a Yellow Nape but I couldn't decide. On April 27, my birthday, we happened to be vacationing in Florida and a friend took us to a fabulous pet store to buy toys for Blue. Fixated on the toys I was totally unaware that there was a batch of young Greys waiting for a home. Enter the most marvelous husband. On the drive back to pack all the toys he tells me he wants to give me a bird for my birthday. We are about to leave on the plane home in 4-5 hours, mind you. Sure! I replied excited with the go ahead to get another bird. He told me of the greys and he said all I had to do was choose. I'm sure you all heard my screaming and hollering for joy that day. You just didn't know me yet. Back we went to the store and Ruby fixed his gaze on me and followed my every move. Duh! That's my baby. The next two hours were a whirlwind of vet certificate, carrier, food, luggage and airplane. I spent every moment of the flight going back and forth to the bathroom to soothe him and gawk in total fascination. Best birthday to date!. Awards

Hi! My name is Ruby BOTD July 27, 2010 ~THANK YOU!! ~

I am an African Grey from San Juan, PR.

Rubycute. Pidgeon

24 years old   M

African Grey


With my owner.

When Rocky decides to squawk or the dogs bark incessantly. I firmly tell them, "Shhhh! Quiet!" and they usually respect me. Hmf!

She protects me, loves me, teaches me, respects me and gobbles me up with kisses. She's a great head & neck scratcher, too!

He'll join in group conversations and give his very serious opinion even if it's chattering away a bunch of tied together syllables that don't really make up a word.
He'll laugh loudly, on cue, when listening to stand up comics or funny movies.

I've gotta check it out!.

  Hi Ruby!
As always, you have me laughing. I heard you off in the distance during Rocky's visit. That 'Too-guy, he does get himself excited doesn't he? But I think it's cause he has so many wonderful ideas whirring about in his head all at once, it just sort of spills out in this chaotic happiness. I imagine you're much more selective with your verbal expressions. I know I am, unlike some of the others in my flock. I have been experiencing something different here lately though. Mom's phone has a recording device on it and she's managed to capture a number of my jabber sessions, without my signed consent, I might add. When these little one and two minute recordings are played back to me, I at first give the phone this odd look and then I compete with my recorded self to see if I can out-talk it. RaneBeau informed me I was talking to myself but I corrected him by saying I was talking WITH myself. There's a difference.

Love all the hat pictures here. I'd forgotten about your hat theme and all the various birds who participated. Some of these birds are no longer with us on the BC...

Have a greyt one, Ruby. Come by my page anytime. I'm always up for a good chuckle.

  So Sorry
Ogre here.... I hope you are doing great. Grendel says hi! We are so sad to hear about the loss of the family puppy, Willy.... Snowball is keeping an eye on him and we know you made the right choice. It still hurts, though. Willy understands and has nothing but love for you and th family. We are so sad and hope the best for all of you. Here is a vote and hang in there... We lost Snowball recently so we can understand how hard it is. I still spend many a hour yelling for her from my cage, but I know she is a great place and is watching out for us. Love Ogre and friends

  Hello RUby
Rocky gave me a hard time about my slip up with you and Blue, calling you boys when you are girls and girls when you are boys. I think it was going 23 years being called a boy then my new family finally found out I am a girl. Talk about confusing and at my age I cant handle it. I blame it all on the typist. You made a very handsome King.
Hope you had a great weekend.

Love Macalune

  So Sorry Your Queeness
But it really was a mistake on calling you King, your profile says you are a male. If its any consolation I went 23 years being called a boy and then to find out I am a girl. I already knew that but those stupids humans didnt. I hope you are having a good weekend.

Oh and about calling me ooooooldd. You are only as old as you feel and right now I do fell old cause I hurt my lower beak and it is really sore.

  Hello friend.....Emily and I will like to vote for your flock everyday. sometimes silent if I don't have the time, but I will imform you if I do. I am feeling all SKIPPY today! I am starting to get used to the outside of my cage, but whenever I fly I always fly into a window, and mom always runs over and grabs me. I LEARNED TO GET ON MOM'S FINGER. Mom said that she couldn't remember how she trained Emily to get on her finger because IT WAS 4 YEARS AGO!! Hehe! But I still need more of that so I get it more. Mom did it with me when I was out of my cage, and said "up." Thank you everyone for helping mom ~ Yesturday mom put some carrots in my cage, and now I am down on the bottom of my cage eating them while mom in typing. She said that next for a treat is grapes, my favorate!! Have a good day!

Can your mom juggle? Sounds like that's what you're going to have her doing the night of your Big Castle Bash. You'll be making history this month, you know. Your entire flock will have worn the crown within the month as well as held the TOP BIRD position for July. That's just downright impressive. I hope you have a cruise ticket purchased for your sweet mom. That woman deserves a month's vacation with daily hand massages a must. Nobody could've pulled it off like she has. Give her a kiss for me, would ya? Thanks!


P.S. Not sure which page I saw it on but here's a photo of the five of you together that is so good. The chances of my whole flock posing in one picture is NIL. The look I'd see on mom's face should I make the request would be priceless!
