I wanted to get a bird really bad so I got some books on some birds. I picked the budgie because it is small and not that expensive. I went to the pet store and found a perfect little budgie (ice), he is perfect because he is very social and lovable and he is so cute!!!.

  Ichi, Kiwi, and Mav's mom here!
Hello everybirdie! We have gone thru some big changes over here, hence our absence from this place for so long. We lost another flockmate, Tequila, leaving Maverick as the last of my keets. I have taken the profiles down of my babies that have crossed the rainbow bridge, to leave room for any new editions to my flock I may receive, which brings me to my latest news. As you may have heard on the news, Michigan's economy has become horrible, and alot of people are suffering, as well as the animals. Being a michigander myself, I have witnessed first hand the hard times we've fallen upon. My husband lost his job a few months ago, and both of us have been struggling looking for work. That, among other things, put a huge strain on our relationship, and alomst tore us completely apart. Thankfully, we were able to open our eyes and hearts, and work thru our problems and stay together. It was after going thru all of this, and seeing the growing number of homeless and abused pets, that I realized I must do something to help. My husband and I are opening our home to unwanted parrots. I have placed an ad on craigslist to help get the word out, and I'm spreading the word on here as well. Now being that we are hard pressed for cash, and don't have that much space, we are asking for any help and assistance people are willing to give. Donations, volunteers, advice, anything of that nature is welcome. Remember that I am not doing this for myself, this is for parrots. Tho it does give me great joy to care for every lil bundle of feathers that comes my way =]

Hey Ice! Yes, I had a pretty good Easter as well. I got some sweet potatoe, which I love. And egg, which I hate. Can't have everything your own way, I guess...lol... It's been kind of cool and rainy here lately, it will probably jump right into hot and muggy summer at this rate! Hope you had a great day...Cya...

Hey Ice! Yep, tonite's the party, feel free to drop in if you're on the computer! And those costumes should remain up for a while, you will be able to wander around and see the artwork. I did a lot of them but some of the birdies did theirs with far more talent! Cya...

Hey Ice! Glad you like my pics. There will be about 60-80 birds (see the list in 'my motto' section of my profile) who will be dressed in their costumes for a while starting Saturday. You should try to check out their individual costumes, I think they're pretty cool....Cya...

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Ice! You are a lucky birdy to be able to fly. I've never shown any ability to fly before, we asked the vet about it but he couldn't find anything wrong...said that probably I'd just never 'learned' how. Lately, though, I've been flapping my wings more than usual so maybe I'm practicing! Perhaps
I didn't ever used to have a very big cage before in my previous homes, so maybe I never had room to flap my wings. Who knows, maybe an old bird can learn new tricks....lol... I have lately been climbing down from my cage and playstand to try to wander around, it's a whole new world down there! Keep flying buddy.....Cya....

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Ice! It was great to hear from you! So what's going on in Minnesota? Have you thawed out yet? We actually got a storm with ice and snow a few weeks ago, it was pretty nasty for down here. In fact, I was in my cage when some ice/snow came rolling off the roof onto the skylights of my sunroom, scared me, and I took my first ever unscheduled flight! I really can't fly, you know, but I managed to glide down and across the room without killing myself--I was a very surprised! Hope you had a great day....Cya...

  Hello everybirdy.
Today was grooming day for my flock, and everything went as usual until it was Cena's turn. When I went to fish him out of his cage, he just stood still and let me pick him up. I was dumbfounded and became very worried. He is not a people bird at all, and never stays still for me when I put my hand in his cage. And yet today he did not move at all. So I picked him up and found another shock; the poor bird is the skinniest he's ever been. Like sickly skinny. I brought him to the bathroom where I do the grooming and set him down in my lap where he just sat there. He always tries to fly away from me though he knows he won't get very far. And today, nothing. When I held his wing open to clip it, he didn't put up much of a fight like he usually does. Then when I was done grooming him, he burrowed into my hand and let me preen him. Something is very wrong and I am very worried. The last time a Budgie of mine did this, it was Sweetpea, and he died a couple days later. I don't have much money right now to take him to the vet, and I don't even know that vet could help him if I did take him in. He's always so full of life jumping around and doing mating dances with Nyah and chirping and reguritating food for her. And for a regular Budgie, he's quite big. But today he is so small and quiet. I need everyone's prayers on this one, because I have a really bad feeling that Cena's time with us almost gone.

  Everyone pray for Duckie Lou
Ichigo here. Duckie had an accident last week, and fell from the top of his cage onto his chest. The impact of the fall was so hard that it wounded him pretty bad. He ended up at the vet, where he was given antibiotics and had to stay over night. The next day, his mom took him to his dad's house where he could have a more peaceful recovery. Well bein the stubborn lil Quaker Duckie is, last night he chewed open his wound and had to get stitches and a cone collar put on his neck. He was really scared and was freaking out really bad. His mom is also really scared and worried that he might not make it. So please everyone, pray for Duckie Lou. I don't want to lose my best friend, and his mom doesn't want to lose another Quaker.

Ichi here! Mom gives me showers with her now. I still don't have a shower perch, but she lets me sit on her hand and flap my wings under the stream of water and then when I'm done, I just sit on the curtain rod. I love showers!

  Hello Ice
Sunflower here, I was stopping by Ichigo page and noticed you were showing me support for bird of the week. So I wanted to stop by and say Thank you. I honestly wasn't even running or thinking of running for bird of the week, it was Ichi and his Mom's idea and I have to say it sure does make me feel loved at this time when I am pretty lonely without Safflower. So Thank You again sooooo much.

Hey Ice! Well, weather in Missouri went from rain all the time into hot. It is supposed to rain again Thurs & Friday but we've had several days without rain so I guess we can't complain. (we can complain, it just won't do any good!) I'll complain Friday when I get toweled at the vet, but it won't do any good then, either! Cya...

  Hey Ice!
Ichi here! Mom's friend is up here from Texas so we haven't been on much. It's been adventure because Mom hasn't seen her friend since last summer and she brought her dog this time, so that added to the number of animals in our zoo I mean apartment lol. But Mom's friend is going to Toledo today until Thursday so we got some time to talk on here now. Now onto the sad news. One of our beloved friends from BC just recently passed away. Her name was Safflower and she was Sunflower's sibling (they are parrolets). Sunflower is really sad now so everyone keep Sunflower's flock in your prayers. I know that my siblings want me to get BOTW, but I would rather have Sunflower get it. So everyone please vote for her. If you cant find her profile, go to my page and she'll be in my blog comments so you can find her there.

Help us out to vote Ichigo Botw. He is a lil jealous of the new furball in the house and he's been trying to eat her! (We don't really like the new furball either, but we can't have Ichi tryin to eat her!) So maybe if he gets BOTW he will be so happy that he'll forget about trying to eat the baby kitty! Please help a birdy and a birdy's mommy out! Lots of birdy kisses, Cena & Nyah

Hey Ice! Well, at least you can fly. My feathers are not trimmed but I still drop like a rock. (a slightly overweight rock). I'm supposed to go on antibiotics soon because one of my tests the vet took last week showed too much bacteria of some kind...I dunno, like heck, if I was sick wouldn't I be losing weight? But that's why they're paid the big bucks, they're supposed to know what they're talking about...Cya...

Ichi here! I have discovered my new found love for destroying my skin brother's plastic baby spoons. Mom was feeding the skin brother some oatmeal and i walked acrossed the keyboard of the comp just now and grabbed the spoon and began chewing. So mom got me my own spoon to chew on and boy is it good! I have also found my love for strawberries. They are quite tasty! Well I'm off to chew and explore more things, squawk at ya later!
