Hi! My name is Skittles

I am a Cockatoo from Highlands, TX.

Baby girl. skittle wittles.

6 years old   F

Cockatoo

I love cheerios and any other snacks I can get my hands on.

I love to hang out on top of my cage.

I hate when mom puts me back in my cage after holding me for a while.

She fell in love with me before I even had feathers.

I am learning to perch and play with my toys..

You are never to small to accomplish something big!!!.

  Hi
I agree that you really need to be with a bird to know what to name them, but at times a pic does work. We have a goffins cockatoo also and her name is Shasta. Does your mom have any favorite names. If she has multiples she could always put them up on you page and we all could help her make the decision. Our mom has always said that if she gets another male animal she was going to name him Jack (we have two dog siblings named Will and Grace). Does your mom want a cute name or a more traditional name. Does she like a certain movie or play? All we know is that you are sooooo cute that our mom just wants to pick you up and cuddle you. She misses the baby stage (even though she loves us as adults to no end). We would love for you to come and visit our pages and be our friend. Let us know when your mom finds a name or if she needs some more help. We are glad that you have found an awesome family. Lots of love to you and your family.

Come visit me, Teddie, Toby, Tessa & Peanut.

  Hi there cutie
We saw that you were the "mystery bird" and we wanted to stop by and visit! It's difficult to choose a name for someone that you don't know because mom thinks you have to actually be with them to get their name to come. I see that Jolie suggested Jazzy which is cool cause we have a flockmate with that name. He's a gorgeous yellow budgie. Mom thought Nevica was nice - that means snow in Italian, but it might be too girly for a boy bird. Well, let us know what you decide on. . .I'm sure that you and your mom will come up with a perfect name! Cheers! Teacake and the FLorida FLock

Come visit me, Quincy and Chez, Sonny and Dillon van der Beek, Djimo Beaumont Teasedale, Sage B. Teasedale, Sergio, nOOdles and Pipa, Edla Adler, Jazzy (Mr. Spiffay) & Holly.

  Hey little guy!!
Welcome! My name is Baby Girl, I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from Florida. You are so sweet! Names are so hard 'cuz' you want the perfect one. My mom thinks mine is too generic but Thats the name I came with and being a Cockatoo I was already calling myself that so mom felt she had to keep it! Zuko, Ghost, Dudly, Zooloo....sorry keep us updated! Peace, Baby Girl ><

Come visit me, Jose & Baby Girl.

  Welcome to BC from the Konawa Oklahoma Gang
Hi New friend, Cotton Ball here for the Oklahoma Gang. We bring a vote and some news to your nest. This is a lovely day. Hope you are having a great time... My fibling St.Patrick always puts TODAYS LIMERICK under his motto on his page. Each day a different Bird is featured. The BC LOVE BIRD BASEBALL TEAM is trying to form.. so far several birds have contacted our fiblings Slate and Mica: check out their page and Silly Lilly's page for info. GiGi (lovebird) lost her mate Mello Yello to the Rainbow bridge yesterday.. He was also Silly Lilly's twin. They are so sad. The Love Birds will dedicate their first game to the memory of MELLO YELLO Slate told me.. There is a BC PARROTS LEAGUE Baseball game soon the Senegal vs. the Cockatoos. The date has not been announced.. Hope you will join in the fun. Come visit us sooon....We love votes and blogs and we will vote for you too. That is what friends are for....hehe

Come visit me, St. Patrick D'bird loves Ruby Sue, Lonnie, Slate and Mica, Fortune & Cotton Ball "I'm Tiki's Girl".

  Hi cutie
Maybe they should name you Casper (like the friendly ghost), since you are all white!! I had a white parakeet once that I named Casper.

Hi Little One,
I have two little ones just like you but mine are full grown now. I think Mommy should call you Squeakers. I don't know why. You just look like a Squeakers to me. Make sure Mommy gives you lots of scritches. I now you will love them.

  Hi there cutie
Hi there. Welcome to the flock, hope you like it here!! you're such a cute fluffball. Lots of great birds and people here. As for a name goes:
I have to agree with the majority of the others here, wait until you get home and show your personality. Until then I'ld call your "Pretty Boy" or" Pretty Bird". That way you get used to the phase and say it one day. Mom calls me Pretty Baby or bird and now I call here that too. Here's a vote for you. Fly by anytime just to say HI. Charlie

Come visit me, Charlie.

  Hi Sweetheart
Yeah, the name should fit the personality. I struggled for a week over a name for my Romeo, an umbrella cockatoo. Romeo fits because he's such a lover boy, loves to snuggle and is very affectionate. He's 3 now and the name still fits perfectly. He says I love Mama, I love CoCo pretty girl, Hey Bird, Bye Bye. I love Pretty Baby. I love you.
Everything is love,love,love with him. Welcome to BC can't wait till he gets home, he's gonna change your life you can bet on that. Keep us posted. Mom, Romeo,Coco,Smokey

  Hi from Woof and Meow PLEASE VOTE LILLY LOU 4 BOTW
We kind of agree with the folks who've been saying wait till your baby comes home. His personality will name him. That's not how we got our own names, however. Woof is named for the cheer the Chicago people give at football games. Meow got his because (a) Woof came to us first and Meow fits with Woof and (b) Meow was in a bird store with a cat and could say 'eow when we first met him. He doesn't say that anymore. Now he and Woof both say what, click, laugh, purr, growl and whistle with a question mark at the end of the whistle. Maybe you could name your baby with the first word he says? Anyway, keep us posted on his progress and especially when he comes home to you. Woof & Meow

Come visit me, Woof and Meow.

  Hello
Sometimes you just have to wait to find the "right" name to fit the fid. Am sure it will come to in time and fit perfectly then. Gus was almost Echo but he was born in AuGUSt so that is how he got his name. You can see him on his page as a baby also. Chi chi was older so it came right away for her name. Take the time and get the right one you like.We are glad you joined BC and hope you come visit us anytime you can..we love company. There are lots of nice people on here to meet and so many new things to do and learn on this site too. We are leaving you a vote as we leave and cheech to you later my friend.

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..
