Smokie is a rehomed bird. My former employer purchased him and no one really bonded with him except me. Smokie hadn't been out of his cage in 4 years and hadn't been touched. I feel in love with him and was able to scratch his head without being bitten. My boss "sold" Smokie to me for a penny and I've had him for about 1 1/2 years. I still can't get him to step up, but we "kiss" and I can pet him all the way down his back. He is amazing and a true soulmate to me. I thank Evelyn (my boss, my friend) everyday for him.. Awards

  Hi Smokie
Hi, I am Lucky and I live near you....I am in Vinton. Isn't it great to be re-homed and find a much better home. I am rehomed too. My last mom passed away. She was so sick she couldn't take care of me like I would have liked to but I know I was the reason she hang on for so long. My new mom is great. I have a clean cage all the time now. I get lots of loving and treats. I have a room mate, Charlie. He has his own cage but likes mine better. Dad is going to build us an aviary. How cool is that. Mom said something about joining the local bird your mom a member??

Come visit me, Gadget and Rocket, Dill "Pickles" McCucumber, Sugar & Princess Yoggi Yaka Moto (Yoggi for short).

  What a neat story. My macaw was in a cage before I owned him and can not fly at all. She tries to fly,but falls off my arm. She is very friendly though, and we have bonded as well. See ya Smokie, you're beautiful!

Come visit me, Frosty, Gargoyle, Skadi & Sasha.

  What a great re-homing story for Smokie. I am so happy for both of you and your motto is just about perfect. I fell the same way. 'Love me, Love my Owner"

Come visit me, Fergie, Max, Little Ham & Echo.
