Hi! My name is Tootslarue

I am a Timneh African Grey from High Springs, FL.


20 years old   F

Timneh African Grey

Caramel popcorn seed treats and what ever else dad lets me have.

I prefer my cage or perch, but I really enjoy Nascar season, thats when I get to sit on Dad's shoulder and watch the race.

Being handled by my mom, the vacuum cleaner, and not getting treats first.

He always brings me a treat when he comes home from work and we have whistling competitions.

Saying "Kiss" and "Your Siillly" I can be in the middle of a screaching fit and I'll say "Kiss". I also have the uncanny ability to join the conversation by saying no or what with perfect timing, My parents probably think I can understand them..

"Give me a kiss or else".

  V4U2 from Sammy the greyt
Hi Toots Yes my Pi roomie can get moody too. Not so much at me but at Ollie the youngest grey member of the flock. Even thought we are bigger Scooter will try to steal our food from us. He can eat a lot for a little guy! Mommy got him for company for me since a guy at the bird store told her that he would be a good match for me. Scooter is supposed to be less demanding and a quiter bird, but latley he can be more demanding and way louder than us Greys! He learns from the best. ;)

I hear that Pi's are not that researched so we are all learning about them. I like my Pi roomie if he stays out of
the way of my food and toys!

Thanks for the vote have a greyt day Sammy (:>)=

Come visit me, Scooter & Sammy.

  Hello from Fortune, St. Patrick D' bird and Lonnie
Happy Lord's Day Everybirdie, Mommy just now stopped to take a breath and help us write to our friends. Daddy is not feeling well and Mommy went to church then cooked lunch for our skin sis and her three kids. It has been a great day. We (Lonnie and Ellie) watched while Fortune actually played with the skin grandkids...They were thrilled. Patrick made a huge circle flight path through the house and has been flying laps. hehe He found the new FIDS ( Slate and Mica ) Mommy is almost hysterical... She was trying to keep us all separated. Now all she can do is pray that they are not sick or we all will be sick. Mommy said to tell you PICS OF NEW FIDS on FORTUNE'S page. BABY ZEBRA 12 day)PIC is on PATRICKS page. VOTES 4 ALL our friends. Love and Kisses, Lonnie, St. Patrick and Fortune

  Welcome to the BC, Let's Be Friends
Hi everyone, SweetPepper here. There is a campaign being run for my brother tiel Maxi for BOTW. He is 15 1/2yrs old and has never won anything in his entire birdie life. My sister Kacey and I have won contests and even had our pictures published in magazines. We would love it for Maxi to win something. He is a senior bird and one never knows how long a senior bird will live. He is in good health but so was my brother Digger and he died suddenly without warning. So if everyone could stop in to his page each and everyday and vote for him I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, SweetPepper and Kacey

  Hi from Fortune, St. Patrick and Lonnie
Hey, hey, hey, it's a bright, bright, bright sunshiny day. We have votes for all our friends.... No snow to watch.(frown) and cold outside (brrr). Lonnie and Ellie finally moved into the bird room with us. Yeah, I just want to stay close to my cage. Fortune is throwing his veggies and waiting for the afternoon fruit. hehe....We are all just fine. Mom is excited because they are having a bird fair in OkC this Saturday. She has never been to one and warned all of us that she has plans for the day. The skinbabies are trying to go with her...(better there than here) hehe. We can let her have a day off. Daddy will take care of us.. but no out of cage time until she comes home... Does that happen to you? Patrick, Fortune and Lonnie

  Hey pretty girl,
Don't feel bad, i am sure your mom and dad will set you up with things too. I did'nt get everything at once. When mom & dad took me in November 2005 i came in a very old rusty cage with no toys at all. They started buying me toys and gosh....they scared the feathers out of me, hehehe. (Now i'm pretty openminded about them as long as them toys look similar), then came a new cage a couple of months later, that thing had to sit in a very great distance to me for 2 weeks because it freaked me out. The very first time mom put me in there i would'nt move a toe for about 6-7 hours and now i love it in there, somedays i don't even want to come out. My jungle-swing came a year later and that tree had to wait until October 2007. Mom said that all that stuff is expensive that's the reason we have to wait all the time before she comes up with other crazy ideas. I learned one thing, the longer you live there the more stuff they bring in, hehehe. And believe me some of it scared the living daylight out of me. So don't give up hope! You are in a loving home where people care, play and whistle with you. That is what counts. You have a great day little girl, see you soon. As always a vote from Simu
