Hi! My name is Pippin

I am a Budgerigar from Dearborn Heights, MI.

Pippi

9 years old   F

Budgerigar

Millet, millet, fresh, homegrown broccoli, and millet!

Top of the window curtain. I love looking out the window and singing to the outside birds.

I also like to hang out on top of the entertainment center and on the ceiling fan. It's always off when we're out, but sometimes we make it go around with our wings. Mom calls it our "birdie-go-roun- d."


The lovebird.

FLYING!! She lets me fly around every day. I LOVE FLYING!!!

None -- I am a perfect bird..

I'm the happiest bird alive!.

  Our dear friend Pippin
It is with a heavy heart that I come to tell you about my fister, Peachy, who we fear is so sick she will not last in our world much longer. Last December running through early January/February, she became I'll. After taking her to the vet she was put on antibiotics for a respiratory infection, which unfortunately, Canaries are susceptible to.

With some quiet time, heating pad, antibiotics,and mama's lovin' she gradually improved to where she was eating great, singing, hopping around, flying in her cage...all the things a happy Canary should do. The infection left her with a few "coordination challenges" but other than that, when she moved into our room in March, she was a very happy camper. Last week we were so thrilled to come back onto the BC and tell you all about how well Peachy is, when all the while, she was getting sick all over again. The infection is back full-swing and Miss Peach-Peach was quickly moved into mom and dad's room, put back on antibiotics, given a heating pad...but this time she sleeps all day and unlike last time, her appetite is diminishing.

Mom feels awful. She feeds us a balanced diet of pellets, seeds, veggies, fruit, grains. She cleans or cages. Vacuums our mess. Never uses bad chemicals or sprays or uses Teflon or burns candles. We have a sunshine lamp, a HEPA filer, various toys, treats and perches of various materials and diameters. We go to the doc regularly. She has stacks of magazines and books about taking care of anything with wings. She talks to us, plays with us and loves us to tears. And yet she cannot see why, when she has worked so hard to keep us happy and healthy, how our little singer can be ready to die so young. Yet there are birds out there who live years and years in conditions no living thing should endure and ignored by mean people who get bored of their "pets." How can they live so long through that kind of suffering, yet mom has lavished Peachy and I with only the best, and still she is being taken from our flock?

Yes, we still have faith in miracles. But we also love her so much that we only want her to be happy and suffer no more. Please say a little prayer for her that if and when she leaves us, Peachy-Peach soars over that Rainbow Bridge and sings the loudest, happiest Canary song that even Mommy can hear. We will let you know any news and thank you for keeping us in your thoughts. We luv ya!

  Pippin!
How the heck are ya? I know…shocking to see me here, huh? Well, mom and I have dedicated more time to each other, the rest of the flock, household chores, relaxing…you know…life. Which is why we haven’t been on BC for a long time. But that doesn’t mean I don’t miss you or think of you often, because I do! And even if this is a cut/paste message, rest assured that when I came to your page, I remember something special about you that made me smile.

What have I been up to? Well, I have my own room now! Mom and dad call it “the bird cellar” (see pics below) because MOST of the room belongs to Peachy and I, but daddy was allowed to use our closet to store some of his wine. The best part is that when my parrots are home but can’t have their eye on me, I’m in my room but not my cage. It’s awesome! Mom hung a big tree branch above my cage with some toys, and I’m next to the window so I can see out, but also hide if I see something scary. Got my radio, own TV. And mom made me little “birdie furniture” she painted all pretty to store my treats and toys.

Peachy is doing well. She still stumbles around her cage a bit, but other than that, she is a-ok. She's even singing and tweeting again!

We are also considering a new flock-mate. Daddy has given the green light. (“But just ONE…unless we win the lotto and move to a plantation!” he says) Since mom has kind of sound-proofed the bird cellar (the key word here is kind-of), she broke dad down and he agreed she could bring home another flock member. But she isn’t 100% ready. I think she’s worried how I’ll react since sometimes I occasionally, rarely, every-now-and-then, kind-of, sort-of act like a spoiled brat. (A-hem!) Anywho, on one wing, I’m a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-feathers kind of bird. Hardly anything bothers me. If something new is brought into the house, as long as I can inspect it, we’re good. No freaking out…no birdie tantrums. I’m like as easy going as they come. Especially for a Conure! But mommy…well I am her BABY. And I aint sure I want to SHARE her with anybirdie else. I have allowed another bird to perch on mom’s shoulder, but that was at my Aunt Cathy’s house. And I did let mom hold our friend Knuckles…but she was visiting, not staying. Big diff. So if you have any advice on going from a 1-parrot house to a multi-parrot house, PLEASE SHARE.

Well I don’t want to squawk your ear off all in one sitting but please please please drop me a line and let me know what’s new, how you’re doing, and any and all gossip about BC news. Oh, have to leave you with this: Question: What kind of bird sticks to sweaters?? Answer: A vel-CROW! hehehehe

Love and hugs always, even when I disappear. Cuz you’re my buddy and I hope you know, in my heart you’re always near.

  Caymus here!
Hello dear friend!  Yes this is a copy/paste email but it is the only way I can catch up on months of blogs that I have neglected.  First of all, let me say HAPPY NEW YEAR!  I hope your entire flock receives happiness, health and love this year and for many to follow.  An update on the latest happenings:  First, my fister Peachy has been sick.  We don’t know what is wrong with her.  The vet though it was a respiratory infection, but after two weeks on antibiotics and mommy keeping a heating pad under a towel in her cage, she’s not getting better.  The thing is, she’s not getting worse either.  She’s still eating, drinking, perching and preening.  But she moves around like a drunken sailor and sleeps a lot.  Mom thinks maybe she had the equivalent of a birdie stroke because it seems her motor skills have diminished.  Or maybe her eyesight.  But she seems happy when mom gives her treats and we’re making her as comfortable as possible.  On to another bit of news, I’m getting a bird room!  My oldest-skin sister is spreading her wings and moving out.  That means….PEACHY AND I GET OUR OWN ROOM!  Woo-hoo!  I’ll miss her giving me treats and letting me out but mom says she’s not far away and will visit often.  This weekend is the big move, then mom is having a solid wood door and double-paned windows installed in the room.  I got to pick out the paint color…it’s called “Summer Ivy.”  Then a few decorations and Peach and I can rock out!  At least I hope Peach is better by then.  I’ve also heard mom and dad talking about a new flock member, but not for a few months.  Mom wants to get me acclimated to my new digs, make sure Peachy is on the road to recovery, and then there was mention of some kind of sound-proofing do-da thing.  Sound-proofing?  I’m assuming so that when it’s nighty-night time, the noise from the living room doesn’t bother me.  I just hope it doesn’t diminish my 6 a.m. rise-and-shine call.  I wonder if mom thought about that?  I’m SURE she wants two conures screaming at the top of their lungs to ensure she wakes up before the crack of dawn…especially on weekends.  It would be a pity to waste a day off sleeping in!  With that said, because my cage is going into the new room, I got a fun play stand that will go out in the living room.  Granted I’m usually clinging to mom, but for those moments when I allow her to leave my side, I’ll still have plenty to entertain me…for about 5 minutes anyway.  I posted pics of me on my new stand on my page if you want to take a peek.  Finally, we’re looking forward to the bird show in a couple weeks.  Some of my BC Aunties are driving to Orlando for the show and I hope I get to see them.  I love my aunties very, very much (even if it takes the entire visit for me to warm up to them).  Hehehe  That’s the update for now…but PLEASE write back and tell me how your flock is doing.  I’m so out of the latest gossip and am interested in what’s been going on.  Big hugs and a vote coming your way…squawk a ch-ya soon!

  No we have cats but they are too lazy to catch us!
No Pippin we can't fly around but only because we have kitties at our house. They wouldn't hurt a fly much less a bird though. I HAVE escaped from my cage though! I went soaring around the house! Man aren't those houses big! How DO people live in them! LOL!!! Anyways. . . I would love to fly around the house but nope can't cause of those kitties. But we enjoy the kitties! Ever heard of a friendly cat? well now you have cause all our cats are friendly! Mom just doesnt want us to take a chance. We might get hurt or hit something! We'd love to have a special room just for us where we can fly around! But thants only in our dream house. Thats not gonna happen to soon! Anyways, Better let you keep flying. Ur wings are probably getting tired from reading my long message! Gotta fly! Stop by soon!

Caymus here flying by to catch up on all the news. I haven't been on the 'puter lately. I've been giving mom a hard time. My birdy hormones have been flaring lately and mom's had to reeeeeally be patient with me and give me lots of things to do to help with all this excess energey. I got new foraging toys, and toys that I can shred and destroy and make a proper mess with! hehehe How are you, Pippin? Got any good stories for me? Hope all is well in your flock...leaving big hugs and a vote for ya!
