Hi! My name is Tanzi

I am an African Grey from Kokomo, IN.

I am Tanzi, Tanzi Marie,
and sometimes
"sweet lil girlybird"

9 years old   F

African Grey

I love millet spray, avicakes, fruit, lots of stuff, but my new fave is this rice dish with mixed veggies that Mom makes for me !

I love to hang out on my SandyPerch Swing !

I am not crazy about baths as yet... so Mom mists me while singing..."It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring..."

My Mom sings to me...sometimes funny lil ditties she makes up herself, and sometimes she changes other songs to suit the both of us. My owner's name is Mary, so, she sings to me... "Mary had a little bird"...

I once ingested part of a toy, and spent several days in the hospital. This was just after Christmas, and I'm still a lil fragile..

"Could I borrow your BLING?".

  Hello My Sweet Girl!!!!!!
I'm feeling better, since my moms been really soaking me in the shower,For my pin feathers to soften.I'm not all that fond of showering in this manner, but whatever it takes,that's what my mom says.
So how is my sweet girl feeling?I hope you're well also.Tell your mom to keep up the good work with school,you must be proud of her,Tanzi.Have to go sweetness,talk to you later.V4U.SWAK!

Come visit me, Jolie.

  Hi Sweet Tanzi,
Mom is still giving me showers ,but I did make another of my pin feather bleed.Mom wasn't happy with me.Hopefully that will be the last one.It's hard to brake bad habits.Mom gives me alot of wood to chew,and I love to chew, which helps me forget about those pin feathers.I hope your doing well.V4U. SWAK!

Come visit me, Jolie.

  Hi Tanzi,
I've missed you too!Moms been busy with me.I'm molting and having a bad time with it.So she's been putting me in the shower and soaking me down once a day.I'm growing my new feathers now,and not making them bleed.The shower are helping tremendously with softening my sheats,and I'm able to let them grow out naturally.Pretty soon I will be looking beautiful again.
So what it up with you,my sweet Tanzi?My vote is for you and I will try to get to the computer more often.SWAK.

Come visit me, Jolie.

  Hi Tanzi,
I've been doing pretty well myself.I'm keeping my feathers crossed I stay like that.LOL.Maybe the stress bars are from before when you were feeling just right for a while.You know we're very sensitive creature.So it could be from the fact that at on time you weren't eating as well as you should of been,and it's coming out of your feathers now.But differently get it checked out.So your Hatchday is the Fourth of July.I will come by tommorrow to sing to you ok Tanzi.You must be getting excited! 1 year old,WOW!Ok my good friend I sing to you tommorrow.Cya,Jolie.OOOPs!your vote of course,sweetheart!

  Hi Tanzi,
So sorry to hear about Mischa problem.We will surely pray for her.I don't really know to much about scissor beak ,but I've seen birds with them.Did they say wether it a genetic problem or did they create the problem when they hand feed Mischa?Because beaks are soft when your a baby and sometimes when they handfeed the birds they tend to feed only on one side and it pushes the upper mandible off to the side.Sometimes if the beak is still on the soft side you could try, if Mischa will let you push the beak very gently the other way and hold, eventually it will be a little better than now.No harm in trying just remember small pressure on the beak.How old is Mischa now?
My vote is for you tanzi, my friend.

Come visit me, Jolie.

  Hi tanzi,
OW!Your so sweet tanzi!I love you, too.I'm glad all is well with you.I had a little bout with my crop I was sick and throwing up,but it only lasted about a few seconds, but I didn't eat until my crop settled.Which took a few hours.Then I was much better and my poop cleared up the next day.That happened on saturday.I'm not sure just what made me sick.Mom was nervous though.especially what happen to me with the plastic toy.Never a dull moment with me around.
About TUTU now Mischa you don't have to make a new webpage you can just edit the one you have and put the new name and picture changes you need to add.Why lose your points you have already accumulated.By the way I like the name Mischa alot.Have a great night!Lots of Beaky Kisses and Hugs and my vote is to you Tanzi,sweet girl.

  Hi Tanzi,
It's jolie. I been thinking and wondering if you were ok.I think of you often.I'm glad your happy in your new home and lots of prayers can never be too much.I'm sure the lord will shine his light on you to heal you.The lord has ways to humble us.I will definitely keep you in my prayers.So may the Lord bless you and keep you, Tanzi, in his loving heart.
Try to help mom if you can.It sounds like she still has a big job ahead of her.
I think Tanzi if you just feel better it will help your mom immensely.
I think you're a very beautiful girl,and your lucky to have a wonderful mom.
God Bless,and you definitely have my vote.

  Hi Tanzi,
I guess I didn't realize how lucky I was to have thrown up those pieces of plastic toy.Of course soon as we got home she remove all of those plastics toys from my tree.I hope things go well for you.You know keep warm and I'll be thinking of you everyday.Does the vet think you might throw up things pieces of toys eventually?Are they still in your crop area or digested in your stomach?They must be letting off toxins in your system if there still in your body.Let us Pray.May the Lord protect you, and keep you safe ,from all of the harmful things, of this world ,we live in, Please Lord, help TANZI, to get better. This we ask thru Christ our Lord Amen.I hope this doesn't offend you.It wasn't meant to, and if it did I'm sorry. I'm just feeling helpless right now.
My vote is for you Tanzi.Stay warm,Beaky kisses and hugs ,Jolie.

  Hi Everybirdie, Cotton Ball here, I missed blogging yesterday.. But Mom had gkids, church and family time...we missed is a vote from us...The Cockatoo's are enjoying all the sweet talk from the Senegals about baseball,NOT! Patrick missed a LIMERICK SUNDAY he mumbled someting about writers block? I don't know what that is but he was back at work this morning.. His LIMERICK OF THE DAY IS UNDER HIS MOTTO. Here is a vote for you... Love, Cotton and the boys. Mom asked how the Finch and Lovebird teams are coming along.. You will need to select 15 numbers 1-8 and post your lineup and numbers before you can play..Fortune suggested to Norman that Finches play the Lovebirds to see who will play the winner of the Cockatoo vs. Senegal game. Let us know what you think. Cotton Ball

  Hi Tanzi,
One time I swallowed a few little pieces of a plastic toy I had and it made me very sick.Mom didn't realize I swallowed those little pieces,until I started to get sick , throwing up those little green plastic pieces of toy.My call the vet and brought me in .The vet said it upset my whole system .So I had to go on antibiotics for 7 days.That was last spring right around this time last year.I recovered completely and no more of those plastic toys for me.The vet said usually they don't eat plastic ,but I did.I hope you will be ok and recover completely from ingestation.
Also thank you for your compliment,I'm blushing!Geez!
My vote is for you.
