one day I decided I want a bird really bad, and then I remembered my neighbors lovebirds and how cute they were. so I found a local breeder and brought China home. (she was the smallest and cutest one of her clutch).

Hi! My name is China

I am a Peach-Faced Lovebird from Margate, FL.

pitbull, piranah, chi-chi, fluff ball, baby girrrl.

8 years old   F

Peach-Faced Lovebird

millet, cheerios, nutriballs, berrie treat sticks. I won't eat my fruits and veggies, but Ill drink them. mommy buys me organic juice. my favorite is apple juice! mommy sprinkles those vitamins called juice plus in my food. they taste good! and they're veryy healthy.

mommy's shoulder, in mommy's shirt, on top of the curtain rack in the living room, ontop of mommy's head. in my toy drawer full of toys that won't fit in my cage. on my playground, and on the coat rack behind mommy's bedroom door that mommy has hanging toys for me!

fingers, kids, anything invading my territory!, not getting what I wants when I wants it. uhg and I hate feet! and I hate when people say I'm small! I'm not! I could win any fight. I could take on anyone.

She gives me everything I want. all the toys I want. all the paper I want. and she loves me no matter how much I bite her! cuz I give her kissies too. and she preens me so good! and she keeps my food refrigerated. I love my food cold and fresh. And she sings and dances for me. she really can't sing for her life, but I love laughng at her. my mommy is just as goofy as I am.

biting, chewing paper and tucking them in my wings, picking mommy's nose with my beak, flying in circles and landing on peoples heads, pushing things off shelves on purpose, etc. bossing my mom around. grabbing the parakeets by the feet to scare them. chasing the keets around the room..

Speak My Language

I know you get upset with me when I knock over my water bowl, throw food, scream or pluck my feathers. I don't do these things to annoy you – I am probably trying to tell you something (perhaps that I am hurting, lonely or sad). Learn to speak my (body) language. Remember that I, alone of all creatures on this planet, learn to speak yours!

  Hello China!
You are so cute....I think you are about the cutiest lovebird i have ever seen! Your mommy is really good at taking pictures too they are so nice to look at, we will be getting some new pictures up tomorrow and we are excited! We also like your Mommy's idea of the magnetic letters we can't play with them because we would eat them but we know some small birds that would have lots of fun with them :) we vote for you sweetie <3 now we have to check out isabell's page...

Come visit me, Sierra & Sam.

  excuse me grandpa?
do you forget what my mommy looks like? you still have her child image in your head. she was blonde hair blue eyed when she was little. her hair is brown now. and her eyes have been green as long as i've known her. and mommy has black people lips. jeesh, we've been gone eight months and you forget what your own daughter looks like! I just might bite you when we move back home. as a matter of fact, I will bite you. you can prepare yourself, but it won't make it hurt any less. I'm bigger and stronger than you, I'm the queen/pihranna of the world!

  China's Mommy - Erica
I, China, need to tell you something about my mommy, Erica. She, with her blonde hair and blue eyes looks like tweetie the bird. The problem is that mommy has turkey lips. And when mommy sucks in the sides of her mouth, she looks like a fish. But I love my mommy, Erica
even though she has to creep up to a glass to get a drink of water - eegads!!!

  WOW A NEW CAGE WAITING FOR ME IN FLORIDA!
when it's time for me to move back with mommy, I'm giving the keets the cage I have up here because last time when we shipped it up here it got a little banged up, and we don't want to bang it up more. it's a beautiful cage.
the cage in florida is still powder coated like mine. but even BIGGER! it's 32 inches wide and as tall as my gramma. she's about 5'6. it's even bigger than huey the severe macaws cage! the cage i'm getting has never been used. and it's only $110 dollars!

Come visit me, Isabell & China.

  A hen's cere goes from pink to light blue to brown, usually at about 8 monthes or so. A cock starts pink, the turns purple then goes blue. What color is Chirpy? Sometimes different colors have different cere colors. Caspy is like that- he's a yellow face type two, and so his cere stayed purple. That's so nice of you to get poor little Chirpy a friend and toys and stuff. I've kept eggs for years and they haven't stunk, but I have never broken them either... if I did it would probably be most unpleasent. =P Her coconut sounds adorable! You should put up more pictures of her in it. My lovebird had a little pink tent like that, and he LOVED it. Does she ever stash food in her wing pits? Pip would do that, and it smelled interesting.

  That's so cute that she sleeps in a coconut! Is it hollowed out, or just a half of one? Yeah, those stores suck. And I hate the way they keep their birds, particularly the budgies. Are you going to keep China's eggs? It's perfectly normal for China to sneeze now and then. As long as she doesn't sneeze out lots of gunk, she's fine. It's true that many birds don't show illness until it's very far along, but birds that are kept singley and bonded as closely to their owners as China is to you will usually come running to Mommy the minute they feel ill. Some really do do that though, if they have a more reserved personality. My Elly May nearly died that way. It's instinct- birds that appear ill are kicked out of the flock. Just watch her. If the sneezing becomes more frequent, if there is a significant discharge then you have a problem. Also, check her cere. It should be smooth and waxy looking, and be white or very pale salmon to a very light pink. If it is pink, red or chapped at all then she might have a sinus infection, or allergies, and you should take her to the vet. My Kiwi has that problem, and it's no big deal. She just gets birdy sudaphed and nose drops during the sprng and summer. When was her last vet check? I'm not sure if you wanted such a long monolouge about sneezing, but I hope it helps.

I've lost my interest in them. mommy is probably going to take them out today. I'm back to sleeping in my coconut, or with my mommy.

  please read/respond
Sometimes I sneeze. but my nostrils are clear and I act normal. I don't have sneezing attacks. but every now and then I do sneeze . mommy thinks I'm fine. I look and act healthy.
she doesn't believe that "a bird won't show any sign of sickness until it's near death" she says the vets say that to make money. because if you know your bird, you know whether or not they're sick.
just want a second opinion if it's normal for birdies to sneeze every now and then and be healthy. dogs and cats sneeze like people too.

  That's great that you found a home for your little guys. A house with no budgies must be so depressing... All of Angel's eggs turned out to be bad. I expected that- she broke her leg right before the three or so weeks in which she was able to lay good eggs. So these didn't turn out. We will just have to try again this spring.

  update on parakeet situation!
If me and mommy are unable to bring the parakeets with us,
we found somebody who knows alot about birds and knows how to take care of them and keep them healthy who said they'd be more than happy to take them.
If we can't take the keets with us, we still want to keep them with us as long as we can before we leave. as long as they are together and well taken care of they will be totally happy.

  announcment! from me!
me and mommy will be moving back to florida in june.
mommy can't wait!
neither can I! I miss my grandma who spoiled me with toys. and I miss Isabelle, the green cheek conure that came from the same breeder mommy got me from.
Also, there is a new member of our family in florida.
a new severe macaw named Huey. Mommy can't wait to see him. neither can I!
I'm sure Isabelle will remember me even though it's been several months.
mommy isn't sure if we're going back to florida by bus or by plane.
if we go by plane, the parakeets can't come with us.
if we go by bus they can. but the bus ride would be 4 days.
if we go by plane, mommy would like to find them a better home (it would be to lonely to keep them upstairs alone) and if they were kept downstairs, they'd be exposed to cigarette smoke and teflon.
but they must stay together, they are not tame (one is semi-friendly). and they are very bonded. They like to come out of their cage, but they stick together and play and explore around the room. they're pretty happy even without human interaction.

  Thanks for the compliment. Yea, he is too much!! I'm not sure if he's mixed. I was told he was peachfaced, but you the second person that mentioned that he looked mixed. Interesting. I love the pit bull and piranah nicknames. Very fitting, my family gave him the nickname Damion, probably for the same reasons, lol!!!
