My mom and grandpa used to breed my bird parents. When my grandpa told my mom that my bird mom had killed my sibling (I was only 1-2 days old) she came right out to the nestbox and took me out. She new that I would be next because I had really bad spradle legs. One of my legs went over my head. She took me out of the cage, handfeed me till I was weened, and worked with the vet to make my legs become a little bit straighter..

Hi! My name is Peanut

I am a Sun Conure from Grand Rapids, MI.

Peenee,

15 years old   M

Sun Conure

I love all fruits and veggies. I am also a big bread and butter fan.

I love to get out on top of my cage, be with my mom (sitting on her chest is the best).

Not being able to fly straight, getting wings and toenails clipped.

My mom has never given up on me. When I was taken out of the nest box, everyone said I would not live. She would not listen. When I got my feathers my mom bought me a cage and everyone said I would not be able to perch, again she did not listen to them and encouraged me to perch (I am now an excellent percher). It was also said that I would not be able to climb or fly, but guess what, I can do both and my mom encouraged me to do everything. When I fly I tend to go in circles, but I can fly none the less. My mom says that I am an inspiration to her and that she has learned a lot from me.

Loves to compete with his sister to see who can scream the loudest..

Don't ever give up and you may be disabled but you can still do whatever you set you mind to..

  Hello from Ichi
Sorry we haven't been on here very much lately. Mom has been hurting alot emotionally. One of Mom and Dad's friends just recently died unexpectedly, and they went to her funeral on Friday. Mom didn't think her friend's death would hit her as hard as it did because she didn't know her very well. Dad knew her better than Mom did because he grew up with her. She was a really awesome person, even if you didn't know her well, you still liked her because she was so nice and caring. Well, Mom ended up crying her eyes out at the funeral, and later on that night. Then as if losing a friend was not bad enough, it was rainy and cold on Mother's Day. And Mom went to see her parents (because she had to pick up something from their house and it was Mother's Day) and when she got there, she gave her Mom a big hug and gave her a pretty rose. Her mom really liked it, and her Dad looked really upset. He did not say Hi to Mom or even make eye contact with her. And then when her Mom couldn't find a vase to put the rose in, her dad looked even more irritated. The tension between my mom and her dad was horrible. And her mom looked really nervous and worried. Mom said it was the awkwardest visit she's ever had with her parents. She ended up telling Dad to put the box of stuff they came to get in the car and hurry up and leave because she couldn't stand to be there anymore. She told her mom that they had to leave because they had to find somewhere to have dinner with Dad's mom (which was true), and Mom's mom looked like she was gonna cry. Mom felt like such a jerk for leaving her like that, but if hadn't left when she did, she was gonna lose it and start cryin. She almost cried all the way to dinner. But things got a little better when Dad's mom showed up to dinner with her boyfriend. She was laughing because the waiter looked like the guy from Austin Powers and it was cracking mom up! And she gave Mom a gift card to Bath and Body Works (which is Mom's favorite place for lotion and stuff like that), and the waiter gave Mom, and Dad's mom flowers for mother's day lol. Then after dinner, Mom and Dad gave Dad's mom the rose that they bought her, and they picked up their new kitten and took her home. So my new furry sister is finally here. Her name is Lady Tsunade (it's Japanese like my name). Mom says thank you to all that wished her a happy Mother's Day (tho she wishes it could have been a little more on the happy side) and she says she hopes all of you mothers out there had a good day.

  Hey Peanut!
Ichi here! Mom and I had our cuddle time this morning, then we got up and I ate breakfast and Mom cleaned the cages. Then we sat down and I had some fruit while Mom fed the skin brother.

  Hello friends!
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!

Rachael, Grand Rapids, MI.

  Hi from Max (the WonderBird!)
Hey Peanut! Thanks to you and your flock for visiting me. Yep, I think (although I'm a little biased) that Double Yellow Heads are cool birds. They talking ability is second only to the African Greys. I talk a lot (when I want to). But we are large birds and require a large cage and playgrounds, so my person says I'm in a one-bird household, cuz her house isn't big enough! Cya...

Come visit me, Maxie the WonderBird! & 10 Grand HOF Club- WELCOME, JAKE!!.
