I bought him from someone that couldn't take care of him. I was in a very small cage with not toys, bird seeds to eat. When mommy came to see me I bit her the first time I saw her. I love her very much. If I feel someone is going to hurt her I scream If she has covered me for the night and I hear loud talking I will flap my feathers until she uncovers me and tells me it is okay. I still get scared of people. Mommy has to keep say, “it is okay “, for me to relax. I have been with her little over two years. He was 9 years old, without a name. My nephew took about week to find him very special name “Oliver”. First nine years of my life was the hardest. I get very scared of littlest noise, I start to pluck my feathers and shake. My mom tries very had to help, but it takes me a little while until I let her help me. I learned several things one of them is burping, sneezing, coughing, I talk also. I make same screaming noise as Lala, until she caught on to it. I was getting Lala in trouble. I can be a bad boy!. Awards

  Hello Oliver and Lala
Merlin and Snuggles here, first off we want to say we are really bad friends for not responding in such a really long time. I sure hope you can forgive us, we really are sorry. Mom has started school and was working full time, now she is working part time and at home every night, so things are slowly getting back on track. So how are you doing? Have you been doing anything fun? Big plans for the weekend? I think we are just going to hang out and enjoy the warm weather that is moving our way, we are suppose to get a storm though, so we will see what we get, they are saying rain, but it could turn to snow!! I want to thank you all that have sent me (Merlin) on the congrats on Cocoa and I getting married!! I must say we are having a long term engagement, as for Snuggles she is has her two wonderful men that treat her right (Clyde and Apollo) they are great guys...they better be or they will have to face her brother ME MERLIN HEHEHEH!!! Thanks for the support you are all great dear friends to my flock family and me. Well we should run for now, not much new here. I must say (merlin here) I have had just so much fun playing on the floor and getting into our dogs dog food and throwing it all over the floor so mom has to clean it up, I just laugh when I play like that it fun.........As for Snuggles her and the dog have been playing hide and seek, WOW those two are nuts. I am sure glad I don't act like that teehehehehe. Well we just wanted to fly by and send some votes and birdy hugs!! Love you all!! Love your friends Merlin and Snuggles

Hey everybody! It was soooo good to hear from you. It sounds like things are going pretty good for you all. I am glad you got that screaming under control and she is eating...Well my merlin loves to scream especially when he is left alone...then he makes me feel bad for him so I go get him...I guess thats my fault. HE is just baby...I dont care I would not have it any other ways...I just them all soooo much. Well I am starting a new job tom, still working 40 hours but it will allow me more time with my babies!! We are also getting a new addition to our family on sat...we are getting a 9 year old umbrella cockatoo her name is Snuggles, her family dont want her anymore after 9 years. So we are excited!! Well I better get going for now, it was so good to hear from you. Write again soon!!! Well until next time, take care...Have a good week. Merlin and his mom!!!

Thanks! They are doing much better than they did in their previous home and only pluck a little. But they seem to want as much interaction as they can get as long as it's on their terms. Thanks for all the advice! And I'm glad it worked for you! Your guys are beautiful! Here's a vote!

  Hi Oliver!
I met your Lala! I think it's funny that you would get Lala in trouble. It would be a nice change in our house if some other birdie would get in trouble! If there's trouble, you just KNOW that our Lala is involved. LOL! Have a good rest of the week! ~ The Jupiter Flock

  Hi Oliver
Sounds as though you and Lala are typical sibs. Same with me, CoCo and Smokey, I like to aggerivate them. I'm always getting in trouble about Smokey. Right now we have two visiting tiels that will be here a month. Mom's neice is in Europe for a month so we're keeping her birds. They are really sweet but I could rip their heads off if I got close enough. Mom keep them far away from me. There's just something about tiels that bother me. Here's a vote for you Romeo
