The breeder was holding Baby for someone else that didn't come get her. Out of the three birds I was shown, Baby walked right up to me and looked me straight in the eye, as if to say "Let's go home, I am the one you are looking for!" Don't you know the gentleman Baby was being held for walked in just as Baby and I were leaving. She was 8 weeks old at the time and was supposed to be a boy, I even got into the habit of calling her "little man". On Christmas Day of that year, we got a suprise! An egg! Ummm....guess we got it wrong, but Baby straightened us out. This is the first cockatiel I had owned, so I didn't know the difference. But I can't say I am disappointed - I love her so much - I wouldn't trade her for the world.. Awards

Hi! My name is Babykins

I am a Pearl Mutation Cockatiel from Westminster, CA.

Baby, Princess Baby, Punkin' Face, Mommy

12 years old   F

Pearl Mutation Cockatiel

Gala apples (yum!), broccoli, crackers, tortillas, and pizza crust

My Mom's shoulder, the couch, & the top of my cage

Toenail clipping, loud noises & my Mom telling me "No".

I am a very spoiled bird... Mom loves and cuddles on me all the time - and I am just the center of attention everywhere I go because I am just so darn cute! I love to travel in the car and go on trips with my "flock".

"Grooming" the fringe on the couch pillows, napping on my Mom's feet (see pic below), and "chatting-up" the employees at the local Starbucks drive thru window!.

I wanna play with everything! NOW!.

  Caymus' Joke of the Day!
Hey Babykins, I’m just flyin’ by real quick to tell you a “joke of the day!” (hey, no groaning…I SWEAR this one is funny!) Ok, so… was the Roman Empire cut in half? ??????????? With a pair of Caesars! hahahohohehehe!!! Oh come on now, you totally laughed! I saw you! (grin) Big birdy hugs and a vote coming your way!

  Hi Babykins!
If you’re taking a vacation with your parronts this year…or they going off without you (hmph!), then I’m here with Caymus’ “green idea of the day” just for you world travelers out there! 1) Touring a new city? No better way to see the sites either by walking or public transportation. When in Rome, they say. 2) If you must rent a car, rent a hybrid! 3) When dining out, eat “local”…if in Maine, have lobster. Trip to Washington? Try the salmon. No sense having a steak in Key West when you could be dining on Stone Crab and Key Lime Pie! 4) Same for where to dine…choose a local mom and pop establishment instead of the golden arches. Helps the local economy at the same time. 5) Stay at hotels that are adopting sustainable initiatives…and use those towels and linens more than one day please! 6) When it comes to souvenirs, buy something that was locally made. I’d rather have a painting from a local artist than a Grand Canyon snow globe made in China any day. Happy trails, and don’t forget to write! (hehehe)

  Hey Babykins!
Caymus here. Today I’d also like to mention that it’s “Prevention of Cruelty to Animals” month. My little friend Pippin from Dearborn Heights, MI, along with his flockmates Dusty Beaker, Skipper, Sammie, Max and Sapphire, reminded me of that fact. Thanks, Pip! I got my green idea of the day by going to, where you can preview the trailer for the new movie coming out on Earth Day. And, to celebrate the premier, the film’s makers will plant a tree in honor of every moviegoer who sees the film in the opening week. The trees will be planted in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, which is considered the most endangered rainforest in the world. Some of our wild cousins live there…so now mom’s trying to figure out how she can smuggle me in the movie theater! hehehe Stay green my friend-hugs and votes all around!

Thanks Dijon! Hey, how can you tell the ocean is friendly? ….. Because it waves! Woo-ho-ho-ho! Sending a vote and hug your way – see ya tomorrow!

  Hi Babykins!
Caymus here. Well it’s that time of year again when I really show my true colors and invite everybirdy our there to “go green” with me! Even my fister Peachy has gotten into the spirit…I mean, have YOU ever seen a green Canary? Rumor has it that I painted Sam the Grey green last year, so you better be careful or this year I may come after YOU! hehehe And of course, stay tuned for my “green ideas of the day” as well as some really neat quotes, and of course a silly joke or two. Earth Day is very important to our flock not just on April 22nd, but every single day of the year because as an old Cree Indian Proverb says, “only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught, will we realize we cannot eat money.”

  Hi Babykins!
Happy New Year! I know that Peachy and I have not been around much lately but that doesn’t mean we haven’t frequently thought about all our dear friends here on the BC. We just wanted to fly by today to say that we have not forgotten about you, miss you dearly, and promise to keep in touch in 2009. You’re friendship has meant a lot to us (and mommy, too) and we all wish you joy, peace and prosperity in the new year. Ok, have to leave you with a “joke of the day….” Question: Why can’t a chicken coop have more than 2 doors?………………………………………….Answer: Because if it had 4 doors it would be a chicken sedan! hehehehe! See ya next year!

  Hey Babykins!
Caymus here! Long time, no squawk…how have you been? It’s a nice sunshiny day here. Today mom gives me a bath with the spray bottle and then I get to wipe my face on her shirt, shake the water from my feathers onto her face, and soak up the rays while I dry off. Mom says I smell like a wet dog whenever I get a bath, and my skin-sis says I smell like a french fry. (???) Very odd humans! Leaving big hugs and a vote!

  Happy Earth Day from Caymus
Happy Earth Day, Babykins! Today is the day to celebrate our plant, do something positive to make it a better place, and to pass on that message to our future generations. Mom and I want to take this time to thank you for reading my “Green Ideas.” You know what the best part was? We have realized that all the BC parronts out there are the largest group of green-minded folks around! I mean, I send out an idea and I get tons of responses back that your flock is already doing these things! Now, I know there are a lot of really good people out there with an appreciation for nature and the will power to save our plant. But for everybirdy here to all have that same ideal? My theory is that us birdies have a special influence on our humans. That when they look in our eyes, they see compassion. When they see us fly, they know our hearts. And when they feel our feathers against their skin, they know that the trust we give them comes from a spirit within us all. I’m so honored to be a part of this BC family, and so my final “green idea of the day” is to BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER…WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!

  Caymus here...
It’s a quiet day today…just hanging out listening to some Jimmy Buffet (hey, I’m a Florida bird…what do you expect?) and pulling apart what little remains of the toy daddy bought for me on Sunday. Mom should be home by the time I’m finish with that, and then it’s toy rotation time! (CAYMUS’ "GREEN IDEA OF THE DAY": If every American switched to receiving just one bill as an electronic statement instead of a paper one, the one-time savings would be 217,800,000 sheets—enough to completely blanket the island of Key West in a single layer of paper. 5 more days until Earth Day!)

  Caymus stopping by...
Hey Babykins...thanks for the return vote. Mom gave me some watermelon last night….ugh! Not up to my taste standards. I didn’t like it. I’m also starting to make a lot of silly faces. I like sticking my tongue out at mom, and then she makes the same faces back at me. But I stop as soon as she gets the camera because I’m certainly not going to let her take a picture of me like that! I hope you’re having a fantastic day…here’s a vote and a hug! (CAYMUS’ "GREEN IDEA OF THE DAY": adopt the next member of your flock at because the best way to save the earth is by saving a life...13 more days until Earth Day!)

  Hi Babykins, I also surprised my owners by laying an egg at age 7mos. I was DNA sexed a male. My owners have the certificate saying so. The breeder offered to exchange me for a male, but my owners had fallen in love with me so here I stayed. I have a great home and 2 feathered sibs. Kacey

  Hello again Babykins! Well I think my mama is pretty well trained. Sometimes she just doesn't understand that I need seeds all the time though. She says it's for my own good but I don't believe her. When I am sitting on her knee when she is reading a book I stick my head into her hand and push. She is very obedient and pets me right away. I also remind her when it is time for food. I get my cooked food at approximately 4:00 PM everyday. I just sit there and call until it comes. I really will not let 6:00 PM pass without getting my meagre amount of seeds. I have got her trained to know when I need to go to bed. She can just tell by my behaviour.
Keep up your training! Pringle.

Come visit me, Pepper, Poirot, Pringle & Artistic Avian Avatars.
