She was a Christmas present. She was a non-handfed lovebird, meant to be the mate of my first bird, Peaches. She didn't get along with him well (she was too mean, shhh). SO we got Kiwi to go with Pickles. That didn't work either because they were both girls. So Kiwi went with Peaches, and I got Kumquat to go with Pickles. Finally a good match. She has had a few clutches of babies and is now retired..

  ST. PATRICK D'BIRD OF DEE WEEK -- THANKS YOU
Hi BBFFs, I am shocked. Your sweet honor has Mommy in tears. She always tells us to do our best to love others and we will recieve our rewards as God sees fit. BUT,I was thinkin' my wise friend Beavis would be BOTW. Hope you will vote for him every day this week as we have been......Well, friends I am not a poet but,I decided to spread my wings and try my feathers at limericks......Here is another from all of us that poked fun at ME! ............. ...............St. Pat will sit on his cage, if Mom he wants to engage, and nothing above, will wake up his love, a LOUD SQUAWK OF CHEECH is the rage.......Have a great week, Dad said we can't afford go on a world tour..However, some of the lesser known Oklahoma attractions are a possibility... Just have to wait and see....Love, Patrick and the flock.......

  Hello from The Konawa Oklahoma Gang
Patrick here, Strong winds have everybirdie running wild today. Dad let the puppies out and they ran like the wind...Mommy found them and made everything OK. It is trash day. The wind blew the lids off the cans....Mom raced down the street after them. After the sanitation men emptied the cans, the cans blew down the street. You guessed it... Mom is on the run again...The Lovies are on the run indoors...Dad chased them down the hall.. hehe Our neighbor lost a tree limb.. and the power keeps flashing because power lines are bouncing together. The sirens keep going off for the fire dept. to fight grass fires.....Whew....WE ARE SAFE IN OUR CAGES MUNCHING ON SNACKS AND WATCHING ALL THE COMMOTION OUT OUR WINDOWS...AIN'T LIFE GRAND? V4Y Love St.Patrick and the flock

  Hi from Fortune, St. Patrick and Lonnie
Patrick here, I'm being good. The Lovies, Slate and Mica, won't let me sit on top of their cage, they nip at my toes. Then I moved to the top of the aquarium now that silly Mica, is trying to move in on my territory there. Daddy put him back in the cage. We were having words.....so to speak. At least I didn't try to nip him. hehe LOCK DOWN for MICA. hehe....My BC friend, Talker, the Cockateil's, baby is so cute. We love baby teils. We have six teil eggs in the nest box with Mrs. Skeeter and her husband Wishbone. Wishbone is a good daddy too. He seems to love caring for the babies more than Skeeter does. They are so funny. They should start hatching soon. Our Zebra baby needs a name that is not gender specific. Any Ideas? It is all white. They mature faster than teils do. It's new pic is on my (Patrick's) page. He took off flying when Mommy tried to take his pic this morning. heehee Well V4Y, Cheech to ya later,,,,xoxoxoxox Patrick, Lonnie and Fortune

  Hello, little retiree!
I am happy to vote for your Pickles. I am a breeder of lovebirds, and it makes me so happy to see a retired bird still living with her original family. I always imagine the big flight I will build for my birds when they retire, so they can enjoy old age with me. **applause for you and Pickles**

  Pickles, Peaches, Kiwi, Kumquat . . . Sounds like a delicious little family! Pickles, you look so much like my little Simon, who was adopted out several years ago. I am so happy you were able to have some babies during your lifetime. We haven't had any "little" luvbirds because all of mine are rescues and they focus on rehabilitation a lot. My little Crackers is going on 19 years in '07. Thank you for visiting McCartney. Birdie kisses to you and yours . . . Liz
