Hi! My name is Francis

He does not like the cats anywhere near him or those self refilable feeders.

She feeds me (realy food and treats), gives me water, plays with me, and cleans my cage daily. There's not much more that I could want!

Francis will wake me up in the middle of the night with his singing.

  Hello Francis from South Africa
I was just looking at all the pretty picture of the birds on BC, then I spotted you. I really love your colours. My mom's thinking of getting a budgie to join our family. When she was at the local bird park to get some more goodies, a man came in trying to sell babies that were not weaned yet, and were to young to leave their nest. My mom got so angry with the man and if she had the ready cash she would have bought them,7 in all.
She offered to pay by cheque but the man wanted cash.
My mom breeds and handrears Sun Conures, Moustache, and Plum Heads as well as Cockatiels in outside aviaries. Myself Attie, Baby and Chips are all house pets, but Mom takes us out to the aviaries every day to visit our parents and the others when she is working there.

Come visit me, Sonny, Star, Chips, Attie & Baby.

  Hey Francis!
Happy New Year! I know that Peachy and I have not been around much lately but that doesn’t mean we haven’t frequently thought about all our dear friends here on the BC. We just wanted to fly by today to say that we have not forgotten about you, miss you dearly, and promise to keep in touch in 2009. You’re friendship has meant a lot to us (and mommy, too) and we all wish you joy, peace and prosperity in the new year. Ok, have to leave you with a “joke of the day….” Question: Why can’t a chicken coop have more than 2 doors?………………………………………….Answer: Because if it had 4 doors it would be a chicken sedan! hehehehe! See ya next year!

Come visit me, Blanche, Caymus & Peachy (2004-2010) - Thank you for BOTD!.

  Hello Francis!
Thanks for stopping in to visit. Smaller birds, such as yourself, can be very hard to catch when they get out of their cages. We have finches in our flock and when they escape, they also try to hide! It sure is hard to get them back. I am glad that you are safely back in your cage. Have a good weekend!

  You Sing in the Middle of the NIght?
Well, that's got to be a sweet sound! You must be so happy during the day that the joy just spills over into the night and you can't help but have sweet dreams and sing about them! Glad today was another happy one for you. I myself had a fun one; hung out in the bay window, made drill sounds while mom worked with some tools in my room—she was putting MORE hooks in the ceiling so MORE stuff could be hung for all of us to play on. Before long she's gonna have to duck whenever she walks through the room! So nice to hear from you, Francis. Kisses to you and your Hana. K *v*

  HI FRANCIS
I went to Sprouts house on saturday and I had a great time! They were all alittle afraid of me because I'm sooo much bigger then them but his mommy spoiled me! I loved that part! My mom said that I behaved like a perfect gentlemen and I can go back to Sprouts house anytime! So I have one favor to ask you, I would like to campaign for Sprout and try to get him BOTW because none of his fids have ever been BOTW and I had such a good time at his house. But theres one thing, please don't mention anything to him! I want this to be a total surprise! OK? Just stop by and talk to him and don't mention BOTW or anything. Thanks alot!! You can find him in my aviary, he's the quaker parrot.. Well I better get going. Take care and have a great week! Love ya, Rocky♥ R(*><*)F xoxoxoxoxoxoxox V4U

  I have been asked to deliver this to you...
An Invitation to The Grand Masquerade Ball Your Royal Highness, Kelly, Queen of the Channel of the Birds requests the honor of thine attendance at the Royal Castle this Friday Evening. Join me as we celebrate an era of Queens and the Queen's Court! Arrive at 7 p,m EST at The Gate, your Mask in place! (You shall have your link line altered to 'hide' your identity. Give yourself a name befitting of Medieval times. This altered link is your MASK!) Upon arrival, state thy purpose to the Guards; they shall direct thee to the Banquet Hall. Once there visit with fellow plebeians until the arrival of the Queen is announced. During the Banquet revelers will be asked to amuse the Queen with their jokes so come prepared to entertain thy Queen and her audience. Following the Feast of Gratitude, the throng shall move to the Great Hall where dancing to the strains of the Chamber Quartet will ensue and the Removal of the Mask will finish out the evening. A visit to your profile page by fellow commoners wil reveal your true identity in your Medieval photo, if you have been able to create one. Though not a requisite, your themed photo will surely add to the enjoyment of the evening!) Your Queen dearly hopes that you her faithful servant, confidant, and friend will honor her with thine attendance, if at all possible. Blessed be; Your Queen
