I was getting supplies for the parakeets at Bracken's Birdfarm in Redlands, CA and I ended up talking to Dijon for over an hour through the cage bars. I found out he was going to be shipped out the next day to go to a pet store and though not the most rational decision, bought him that day. He was so amazing with the established "flock" or "six pack" of parakeets.. Awards

Hi! My name is Monsieur Dijon the Grey Poupon

I am a Cockatiel from Syracuse, NY.

Meester Dijon

13 years old   M


Dijon LOVES sweet corn on the cob. He also loves corn muffins, though gets those in moderation. He thinks I'm trying to KEEL him when I give him other sorts of veggies and fruit. R.I.P. Oberon who ate EVERYTHING and showed the flock that it was INDEED "a good thing".

Dijon really loves to sit on the top perch of the cage, with one foot on the swing. He also likes to cuddle in bed with me and any time he's getting sprayed he is happy and upside down.

Dijon isn't very pleased when the lady parakeets will not groom him.

She gives great head picky and she sings,talks and whistles to me. She has great taste in music. I LOVE The Clash, though Tom Jones is better! I don't mind Polka either! (She says it's because it sounds like ska. Can't she appreciate a good Oom Pah band?)

Dijon seems to think that he is either a very large parakeet, or that the parakeets are very small cockatiels. He was accepted into Ducky's nest and FED the hatchling Little Foot. Little Foot went to Titan, Ducky AND Dijon for food!.

"I came, I saw, I pooped on it!"
"What's new pussycat?"

So who are all your parakeet friends there? Do they all have names? They're cute! Are you like they're body guard sorta? I like to be the body guard for Faith, my cage mate. She doesn't seem to like it much though???

  Monsieur Dijon!
Blanche here to give everybird a status update on the goings on in our flock since we’ve been off BC for a few weeks have lost touch with others along the way. All is great here and mom is giving the Cay-man and I lots of attention and play time as we get ready to host Easter Dinner with the flockily.

Spring is here and we’ve spent lots of time on the back patio watching mom and dad pull weeds and trim trees and make the yard look pretty and filled with flowers again. We occasionally get to go “outside the outside” in our travel carriers to explore the yard and spy on the neighbors. Last weekend mom took our cages to the front drive to spray off the layers of feather dust our Spring molt left behind. I got to stay in the cage while mom sprayed it down…and she finally found how I like to bathe. In the very fine “mist” setting the hose provides. I was very entertaining to the little boy next door and he thought it was funny when I laughed at his laugh, which made me laugh and then him laugh even more….

Then Sunday, mommy went to the bird expo with Mischa and Scrithes’ mom. I must say I’m a bit disappointed by the number of toys she brought back. Only two for each of us! But….I suppose a restocked cabinet of food is a good 2nd place. After all, mom says nobirdy eats with as much enthusiasm as I do! (Although I’m sure some of you out there could probably prove her wrong.)

And I’ve yet to show mom any signs of the Springtime Amazon attitude. She’s actually becoming a bit concerned. Then again, I’ve always been a little “different.” I think mom just sees me as well behaved because, compared to the lean-mean-green-machine, I’m an angel! Well I must be scottin’ along…Caymus has been slackin’ on his Friday Funnies and needs to use the ‘puter to write his column for tomorrow.

Big ‘Zon hugs coming your way…hope to hear from you soon whether it be a quick hello or long visit, a visit from a friend always makes us smile.

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

  Caymus here!
So um…do by chance know how to get nacho cheese sauce out of feathers? On the top of your head? See um, mommy was eating um nachos last night, and um, she kinda sorta bit into a chip and I was kinda goofing off and um, the chip landed on my head, cheese side down. HEY, STOP THAT GIGGLING RIGHT NOW!

So yeah, mom tried to wipe the cheese off but ending up smearing it a little, and then I tried to shake it off, of which I succeeded in splashing some back in mom’s hair as payback! She tried to come after me with a wet towel but I was having none of that, no way, Jose! Well, problem is, it dried to my head feathers and now they’re all stiff and stuck together. Mom put me under the shower this morning and a bit more came out but well…I’m still a little cheesy. Daddy says I’m all ready for the Super Bowl because I’m a cheese head. Hehehehehe

Anywho, sorry Blanchie and I haven’t been on BC in a while. We missed you, though…most truly and dearly missed YOU! All is good here…just the usual business of flock life goin’ on. But we think of you often and your friendship always brings a smile to our face and a thank you to our beaks. Always the big hugs!!!

Oh wow, long time are you? Gosh I've missed ya! What been going on? Happy New Year to you too, by the way. As usual, crazy here with friends, family, food, a bit of traveling (which meant birdie camp, of course). And we're still not and dad have one more small trip planned, but by mid-January, all the dust should be settled and everything back to normal.

Oh I can't wait to hear what kind of trouble you've been getting into. I might now be back on BC until next week but I'll fly by your page first thing!

Happy 2011, Dijon...thanks for remembering me dear friend! (((BIGGEST HUGS EVER)))

  hi guys
I was wondering if you (and everyone who sees this) could do me a favor and vote for my dog, Annie! If she wins, Bissell will donate $10,000 to the cat rescue I volunteer at! It’s really easy and it’d be great if every member of the family with an email can vote. You’ll be helping to save lives! Just visit and click “Create an Account” on the upper right hand corner. Just type in your name, email, and password, and click “Submit”. Click the vote tab and just copy and paste the entrant number 0600670 in the search and that number will take you right to her page! Then click her picture and click vote! Thanks! Leaving you a vote.

Genevieve, Azusa, CA.

I am (Porta)bella the cockatiel but Mommy calls me the "Princess". How do you do so well with so many little budgie mates? I don't think I would like so much competition.

You should eat your veggies because they are good for you and yummy besides. I don't like them cooked though, even when Mommy eats them and says "Yum yum!". Fruits are too sweet though. I don't like them either. *GAG!*

I tried to bathe in orange juice once, though. Mommy rushed me into the shower and made me all wet. I didn't like it much at the time. It was still much better than sticky feathers.

Come visit me, Bella (Cinn. Whiteface) & Beauford.
