She never forgets I am there. She takes time eventhough she is really busy to spend time with me.

Screams, "Mama" when it is time to go to bed then says, "Thank you" when you put him in his special sleep cage..

Do not say, "My pet is just like a person! I do not think they appreciate the insult!".

  Hi Ben!!
It's been a long time since you're been on Bird Channel. I hope everythings alright at home. My Mommy lurks but hasn't blogged in a couple of months. I got to spend some time outside yesterday. I was basking in the sun in my vacation cage while Mommy and my cousin CJ we're gardening. I'm a lucky birdy!!! XOXOXOXO, Leilani

Come visit me, Leilani.

  Hi Ben
You're a very pretty bird. I was almost two, but I died. I loved NutriBerries, they taste great! I treated my mommy like my own species. I would groom her and poop on her, but I gave her so much love. I can't wait to stop by again! ~Jolie~

  I'm sad about your brother! :(
I'm sure your Mama is really sad but at least she has you! I know you make her happy! Here's a vote for you..I have two furry canine brothers and one furry feline brother. I don't have too much to do with any of them. The dogs are huge (Newfoundlands) so Mommy doesn't let me around them much, she's afraid one of them will squish me like a bug! Right now they are in the garage cause one of them keeps getting out of the kitchen and making messes on the carpet. Mommy's not happy with him. The kitty is mostly afraid of me, sometimes he shows too much attention and then he gets swatted away.. Hope you can get outside soon! XOXOXOXO, Leilani

Come visit me, Leilani.

  Hi Ben!
So isn't it a nice day in New Jersey today? I hope you were able to get outside like me! I had a great time. What have you been up to? XOXOXOXO, Leilani

Come visit me, Leilani.

Hi Ben! Thanks for writing back to me. My Mommy bought this thing called a "Wordy Birdie" that repeats whatever phrase she's recorded to me over and over again. I don't think it's working, but she's going to keep trying. She's trying get me to say "aloha" right now. I was bred in Hawaii - so she's trying to get me to say that instead of hi or hello. That's also why she named me "Leilani". It means "beautiful flower" in Hawaiian. My Mommy thinks it suits me well! I think I'm getting ready to say "Night-night" cause my Mommy says that to me every night when she puts my cover on. TTYL, XOXOXO, Leilani

Come visit me, Leilani.

  I'm a Green Cheek Jersey Girl!
Hi Ben! My Mommy was excited to find another Jersey Conure on this blog. I'm going to ask her to give you a vote! How did your Mommy get you to talk? I'm being stubborn. XOXOXO, Leilani

Come visit me, Leilani.

  From you Birdie Buddy
Hello to my entire birdie buddies here at Bird Channel. My Mom is working many hours right now so she has no time for us to come visit you, so we are stopping by very quickly while I am setting on Moms shoulder to say Hello & to wish you & your families a very Happy New Year.

I got many toys for Christmas & Mom even let me unwrap my own Christmas presents that she had wrapped in brown paper bags & she cut them so that no glue is on it, or ink so, I am safe to open these presents from Mom & Dad, & plain white paper that Mom gets for me at the News Paper Business. I had much fun un-wrapping my toys because Mom wrapped them so good it took me a week to fully un-wrap one present, but I loved it because as you know, we love to rip paper apart being the birds we are. *squawk*

Mom promises to let us come visit as soon as she is through with her job project she has going. She is under a timeline, so she is working many hours every day, daily & nightly & has no time for us to come visit, but I told Mom this morning that I wanted to come on Bird Channel & wish all my birdie buddies a Happy New Year & to say Hello. She said it was ok & made me happy today by letting me set on her shoulder while she works & we visit all of you.

Your Birdie Friends,
Valentino & Mooooooooooooom

Come visit me, Mic "The Tongue" Jaeger & Valentino "Big Boy" Jaeger.

(in this mix theres also cashews and almonds too).I share my cage with a sun conure. I try stuff if he does first.;) p.s. nice to me you.

  Spoiled too
Hi there Ben. You are a beautiful little Green-Cheeked Conure & I see, you are spoiled too. I have my own Sleep Cage & Day Cage too. I do not like dogs barking either, but I have learned how to bark & it puzzles our puppies, & I tell them, Come On, outside, about 50 times a day. Thank you for visiting me. You are simply gorgeous! Birdie Kisses Tamela & Valentino

  Thanks for visiting Ollie's page! Yes he loves soda and resorts to licking the rim of the can when we are not looking. He is a little booger, very mischevous.

Ben is beautiful. He looks like a real sweety.

Come visit me, Duke, Oliver, Zorro, Quinn, Sora and Nemo, Maxi & Sammy.
