Mom's mom bought me when I was young, and they live in an old farmhouse. She named me Hope, as in *hope I didn't freeze in the winter*, but after a couple of months, her asthma acted up and mom's daughter brought me here!. Awards

Hi! My name is Hope

I am a Budgerigar from Walkerton, IN.

Lil' Hope

9 years old   F


I like my seed and a little peanut butter now and then. My favorite toy is that silly ball with a bell in it. I can't ever get the bell out!!

I like the top of my cage really well, and sometimes I'll land on Joker's back. It usually freaks him out!

I don't like people to make kissy noises in my face and Spike being able to climb on my cage, but I can't climb on his!

She lets me play in her hair, she brings me treats and toys and I get all the exercise I want.

I like to chatter to my ball and chew mom's hair..

  VOTE BEAVIS #56094 BOTW!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!
BEAVIS U. ----HEAD IS NO CHICK, ................HE IS OLD AND WISE, BUT NOT SICK. ............. ......... HE WAS LOST AND ALONE, ............. ............. ............... CAUGHT AND BROUGHT TO MOM'S HOME. ............. ................ FOR BIRD OF THE WEEK HE'S YOUR PICK! (Dedicated to my pal, Beavis U. ----Head, 28 year old quaker parrot from Virginia Beach, VA.
Hi, My name is SweetPepper and I am the campaign manager for my friend Beavis. Beavis is a 28yr old quaker who has a dream to be the next BOTW. He has tried before and lost, he was even beat out this past week by a fellow quaker. So I am campaigning extra hard this week for my friend and asking all my birdie friends to help by voting each and everyday. All you need to do is stop into his page each and everyday and kick that vote button off the top of his page, you don't even have to leave a blog each time. Help me in helping Beavis achieve his dream of becoming BOTW. Thank You , SweetPepper, campaign manager to BEAVIS FOR BOTW!

  Grover here!
Well aren't you just a sweetie! I just love the little white rouge spots on your cheeks. Believe I've seen the ball with the unattainable bell of which you speak in your profile. I would likely have to say the same thing about not being able to retrieve that bell from inside that ball except for the fact that an African Grey also lives here and she inevitably manages to get ahold of a toy of mine just long enough to crack it which of course makes it easier for me to get at what's in the middle! Those greys come in handy once in awhile. The ball doesn't roll too well after she's touched it but I still have fun playing with it. So nice to meet you. Thanks for hitting the votey button on my page during Spike's last visit. Appreciate that. Later~ G <")

  Hello from the Oklahoma Gang
Patrick here, Yes the workers laughed. I was whistling to embarrass them. They were both men... We had a new floor put in the kitchen and dining area. It is that laminated flooring. You know the kind that is supposed to be easy to install..Wrong! hehe. We have watched Fortune dancin to Old rock classic songs. He sings "I dropped it, I dropped it" no matter what the song is...Big duffuss. He thinks he is singing along with the music. I guess he is a way. Well vote for you and your flock... Jammin out to the tunes....St. Patrick and the gang....

  Hello from the Oklahoma Gang
Good morning Patrick here, Our house is still a mess. I keep telling the construction workers, "Hello Baby" and wolf whistling at them. Mommy laughed and told Dad that is reversed. Usually the construction workers are whistling at the girls that walk by. Well here is a vote for you and the flock on our way out...xoxoxoxo

  Hello from The Konawa Oklahoma Gang
Slate and Mica here, Our friend (macaw)Alyce's favorite treat is an ice cream cone filled with peanut butter and seeds? YUM YUM.. We are gonna ask Mom to make us one for Valentines Day. Fortune is in here saying "I love you, I love you, Patrick" but Patrick just doesn't care for Fortune...Patrick thinks Mommy is his very own and no birdie elses.

We will vote for you and the whole flock.....

  Hello from The Konawa Oklahoma Gang
Slate and Mica here, Mommy made it home from church and the little skin niece is with her. We moved into the bird room wirh everybirdie else this morning. We moved into a larger cage. Then we escaped while Mom and Dad were gone. We couldn't get out of the room and just ran around climbing on everybirdies cage to visit. It was great fun, until Mom put us up. hehe We want to drop off a vote for you and wish you a lovely day. Your friends, St. Patrick, Slate, Mica, Lonnie, Cotton Ball and Fortune........ (we will go hit the votey thing for your flockmates if you have any before we go visit other friends

  This is the end of the campaign trail .......
Hi Hope!!Did you see yourself in the picture!?This is more day before the votes are tallied and the results are in. No matter what..I have learned that I have some terrific friends who have put up with my constant harassment for votes!!What an experience this has been. Mom worked so hard on my pictures..the collage took hours to put together..but she was so touched by how many of you came through and voted for me..some every day..some almost every day!! Even if you voted only once, we couldn't have been more honored!!So ..ONE MORE TIME...please vote tomorrow if you can..and whatever happens..I hope we all stay in touch and remain good friends. You are the best friend a Grey could have!!!
