  Hi from Marley
I read that everyone is going to try to vote for Kacey starting September 1. I am hoping in the remaining days, to get my fibster Gizmo as BOTW this week, since she worked so hard as captain of the CAG baseball team. It would be great because I am in the Dance Off and it would be so fun if we both did good at the same time. Please come vote for us every day - Gizmo for BOTW and me in the Dance Off and spread the word. left you a vote... and thanks.

Come visit me, Leroy, Little Bit & Chloe - Thank you everybirdy!!, Gizmo - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, Max, Jasper - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, Micky - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, PEPPER-Thanks for BOTM!, TiPaul - Who was 8000???

  Hi Ruby!!
OH MY GOODNESS!! WE HAVE SUCH BIG NEWS!! Zebers, for the very first time, perched on Mommy's arm and even stepped up onto her finger!! Mommy is so excited she's been crying! And we even got pictures of it, so you have to stop by Zebe's page and see them! We are all so proud of him! He's really come a long way since he got here in March and is, for the first time in his life, knowing what it's like to be loved and learning how to trust. He got his first shower (in the actual shower) today too, and he really loved it! It was a shower day for everyone, so we have some pretty crazy pictures (that Mommy FINALLY posted) on all of our pages, so if you have some time, fly by and check them out! Thanks for all the advice and encouragement for Zebers...having so many BBFF's makes all the difference in the world! We love you so much! ~Huey and the flock

  Hi Ruby!!
Well, mommy's at it again! She's got this bird brained idea to try and get pictures of all of our BBFF's. I asked her what she was going to do with them and she said "frame them and put 'em up in the bird room"! Oh great :) It would be fun to have pictures of everybirdie though! So here's the deal, everyone who sends us pictures of themselves and/or their flock will get pictures of everybirdie in our flock......so make sure you put a return address on the envelope!!! We thought this would be a fun idea if we got a bunch of birdies involved, so you can get our address on my (Huey's) page to send some off or else here it is too************Huey and the flock % Angela Nelson, PO BOX 143, New London, MN 56273**********and make sure the envelope says "do not bend" on it too so that the pictures don't get wrecked. And so starts the Great Picture Trade-off!! Can't wait to start getting them! I'll be seeing you soon BBFF! ~Huey and the flock

  Huey's hatchday is coming!!
Hi there my friend!! We're flying all over the BC to ask all of the birdies to stop by and vote for our brother Huey this week. It's his hatchday next week (the 8th) and he'll be 1 year old! We're so very excited to surprise him with BOTW so I hope you'll help us in making his first hatchday very special. He's such a good brother (even if he does have a big attitude sometimes!) He's learned to share Mommy with all of us birdies who have never had a forever home before, and he deserves a big cheer for that! Thanks so much for your help in the surprise! (and be sure not to tell him the secret!!) Feather hugs and beaky kisses!! ~Zebers, Ellie, and Suzie

  HI Ruby!!
Good morning my friend! Hope all in well in your end of the world...I'm trying to adjust to life with TWO new sisters! An itty bitty one and a HUGE one! Ellie (the macaw) never shuts up! I was always the loudest one in the flock...grrr! I was riding on mommy's shoulder the other day and when we were walking by Ellie on her ring stand, I did a kamakazie dive onto her back and bit her. She squaked loudly in surprise. Mommy was really scared and got a little mad at me cuz Ellie is so much bigger than me that mommy's worried that she can hurt me...but I let her know who's top bird in this flock! Suzie is kinda keeping to herself unless mommy brings her out to play with her. She flew over to Zebers cage the other day and guess what...Zebers was afraid of her! Imagine! She's so tiny you can hardly see her!! That made mommy kinda sad because he's still so jumpy. She just wants him to settle in and be comfortable and not so scared all the time. Oh, well, even a little progress is good right? Anyway, enough jabbering for one night...have a great weekend my BBFF and we'll talk again soon!! ~Huey

  Good morning Ruby!
Looks like nothing but rain here again in Minnesota! Yuck! No fun at all for the weekend! Oh, well, I suppose the farmers need the rain...can't complain too much so long as I get some of that yummy sweet corn! Oh! And mommy FINALLY put up some new pictures of Huey and me and she even put a picture of her and daddy-to-be on my page too, so you'll have to come and check them out when you have some time! There's a couple of crazy pictures of Huey in his new birdie bath, and a bunch of me actually OUTSIDE my cage! I'm sure learing to love being outside the cage and I wander around all over the house and check things out! Anyway, have a great weekend my friend and we'll chat again soon! BBFF and beaky kisses all around! ~Zebe

  Good morning Ruby!!
Hello there my dear friend! Well, sounds like you fared the storms better than I did...you got popcorn! Unfortunately, mommy was at work, so Huey and I had to ride it out by ourselves, but we did okay and when mommy got home, we were snuggled up sound asleep! We're supposed to get mroe rain today...up to 2 inches the weatherman said! Crazy! Looks like its supposed to storm pretty much all week, which mommy is not too happy about cuz she has a couple days off this week and was hoping to take us birdies outside. Hmmm...maybe we'll get a break for a little while anyway! Have a great week!! BBFF! ~Zebers

  RUBY PRETTY NEW BBFF
VOTE4U, Happy Hump Day!!!!!! WELCOME to BC!! It sounds like you have a great forever home!! You are very cute!! You will have a great time meeting new birdies!! I'm up early with Mommy & driving her crazy sitting on the top od her laptop dictating as she types. Hey, I have to make sure she types what I tell her! Sometimes she spells wrong if I don't stay here. But I keep climbing on & off & on & off But eeeeeek, I just grabbed the "esc" key and eeeeeek Mom just grabbed me and I didn't want to let go but Mom got it anyway. I don't know what the big deal is anyway she has lots more! But she said something about having to replace that key before after I pulled it off so many times, it wouldn't got back on. Good thing I'm so cutie!! Well, I'm happy now just sitting on top, watching & preening my feathers for the minute. Well, that minute is over, so now I'm chewing on the top rubber stops & Mom's not happy, she's no fun!! Ok, I'm happy again watching & perching on 1 foot. Well, Mom's gotta go get ready for work, talk later!! Love ya lots, XXXXOOOO

  Good Morning BBFF Ruby!!
Whew! Mommy was gone for the weekend at a wedding and we had over 2 PAGES of blogs to read! It sure is nice to have such great friends! Well, Zebe has been in my room now for over a week and, as predicted, we have become good friends! When Mommy takes me out of the room we call back and forth to eachother for awhile. It's great having someone to talk to while mommy is gone at work, and mommy really thinks that it is helping him calm down some too, seeing how much fun I have with her! She usually leaves his cage door open when she is home and close by, just to give him the option to come out, and the other day, he did! All by himself! Mommy let him play on his cage for a little while until he jumped to the floor, then she got his towel and snuggled with him on the couch while she was watching a movie...he actually fell asleep on mommys chest! She was giving him scritches on his neck and even rubbing his beak and he didn't bite her once! He gave her fingers a couple of beaky nibbles, but no bites! Yay!! Mommy is so happy that he is coming along so well and so fast! She even put him back in his cage with bare hands and still not bites! WooHoo! Well, progress is slow with the pet shop birdies. Mommy has been in contact with the closest avian rescue, but it's still slow going. The good news is she put in an application to be a volunteer at this rescue (its called Midwest Avian Adoption and Rescue Services or MAARS) so she can learn all she can about helping birdies in need! She's pretty excited about that! Well, I gotta fly! Lots more blogging to do! Have a fabulous day my dear friend! Beaky Kisses! ~Huey and Zebe
