My friend and I were at a bird fair where some people brought a quaker in IN THEIR POCKET to trade in on a "better bird". The breeder they talked to wouldn't take a trade in, but SOLD THEM ANOTHER BIRD. They left the quaker right there. I picked her up and she's been with us since. Kuiper is named for the Kuiper Belt (a disk region of icy objects out past Neptune) because Kuiper is WAY out there. She had emotional issues and needed a lot of work and understanding. She still remembers some Arabic from her past home and always yells, "Yalla, yalla!" at us..

Hi! My name is Kuiper (Kiper)

I am a Quaker from Royal Oak, MI.

Foot.

11 years old   F

Quaker

I love pumpkin seeds, apples and SPROUTS!

I like to sit on my veggie bowl and sing.
I love to weave my door shut, too.


Loud noises (unless it's her own) and quick movements.

My owners understand that I am a quirky quaker.

Kuiper used to be a very nervous and nippy bird. It too years for her to become confident and comfortable. She plucks my own feathers, mostly her neck and her wingpits. She has become a very sweet and funny bird. She likes to sing and keep time by bobbing her little foot up and down. She's always holding out that foot to wave, to step up, or to have her toes tickled.
Kuiper also seems to have food sensitivities, so we are careful about the kind of food she eats.
She is a fantastic weaver.
.

"Yalla! Yalla, Kuiper!".

  Hi!
Please listen to Pogo's story in hopes that you will learn some lifesaving info. One day, Pogo was sitting on top of his cage. He was sitting up there on the door, and we thought it was so cute he could sit up there for a while. Well, around 5 minutes later, we saw that he had chewed off a piece of metal that holds the top together. We were worried, but we would have never DREAMED it was LEAD of all things! We started giving him bird charcoal, Ornabac, peanut butter, peanuts, and lots of calcium to try to get the lead to pass, because we heard that lead poisoning can be treated at home if the bird didn't eat much. A few days later I came home from a game and Pogo was falling off his perch. He was quickly going downhill. We rushed him to the only avian vet in the area (it was lucky that she was even in her office at 11:00 pm) and he was started on shots. We gave him 3 a day for 8 days and he also had to eat some other medicine. He had to be hand fed because he just didn't have the strength to eat pellets. He has almost fully recovered, but now his feet are curled up and he can't perch very well (he just balances). Sometimes he has occasional seizures, and we keep shots on hand just in case. PLEASE don't underestimate the power of lead or zinc, and if any bird gets poisoned, take them to the vet immediately! Curing them at home DOES NOT WORK! Please listen to this. Thanks and birdy kisses from POGO!

Come visit me, Cutie, Yoshi, Tiny & Pogo.

  Hey
Look at that, its Kuiper, I thought Sparki was stealing the spotlight, kind of like I try to steal Kooter's. Kooter would like you cuz if your momma thinks you are way out there, she hasnt met the infamous Kooter KuKu yet. Hows the Arabic going Kuiper, learn your mom any new words lately =D

  Hello from Kilo
Hi there, I cant believe that people just left you at the bird fair. They must not have been very good parents to you. But now you have a new family that cares about you and your well being. You will eventually start to trust them more. Mom bought me from a pet store that wasnt taking very good care of me and my friends. They chopped my wings off really bad when I was just a baby. I havent lost a single clipped wing feather yet and mom is worried about it. She is trying to teach me how to fly anyways, even though I barely come up off the floor and only go a few inches forward. But mom is real good to me. And dad is too, but he is away in Iraq for the year and I miss him. I love pumpkin seeds too! Oh and mom says to tell you that she is from Michigan. Used to live in Taylor and Dearborn Hgts. Then moved to Texas and now lives in Alabama. Im glad she moved to AL cuz that is how she found me. Well stop by and visit anytime. Here is a vote for you. Bye Bye

Come visit me, Cosmo (black masked lovebird), Kilo (pronounced Kee-lo) & Wanda.(black cheeked lovebird).

Have a great day....Little Man...V4U
