Hi! My name is Toby

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Pineville, LA.

T-Toby, Big Man

10 years old   M

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

Fresh corn, corn bread, dry dog food ( he's jealous of the dogs... )

In his cage. He is a BIG chicken. Toby is nervous because he survived a house fire.

Anything above his head, he is afraid of the pool umbrellas and his little birdy sister, Pebbles.

She hangs in there, even though I can be VERY difficult.

Being bad, yelling loud, and then saying, "no, stop it...NO, NO, NO!!!" when mom gets annoyed & goes back inside..

Don't give up on the difficult ones....

Well that's great! And Happy Halloween...late LOL! I'm glad you see that all the birdies are doing great and we are too! I know switch living in my cage and Sarika's cage with Sarika. Sarika is even getting better at a bunch of things. Mom can hold him (no step up though) and he doesn't scream and bite and his tail feathers are completely grown out as well as his wings. I am very pleased with Dr.Estner at the wing clipping...very nice. Oh and there is just so much!!!! I don't seem to have time for it either because of college...blah! haha! I've decided to not be a vet right now and turn more to art. YippY! haha!

Come visit me, Sonrie & Sarika.

Well that's great that the little sun has a name! It's pretty. Oh and about the breeding business...why not a rescue! That's what I may be doing in the future...either that or breeding critically endangered parrots. Rose-brested cockatoos are pretty awesome! I'm just not big on birds with dust LOL! I can't stand it! Anyway if you do start one I'd be happy to come by and see what yah got! haha! Oh and I'm thinking about buying Sarika one of those sleepy huts with the perch inside, but I just wanted to know what you thought of it. He just doesn't like to go INSIDE, but most likely I'll get him a heated perch instead. So what about the news on Peanut!!!? I hope Toby likes her! Anyway here's you some votes!

Come visit me, Sonrie & Sarika.

  Hi Toby
Thank you for the post! Congrads on your new baby conure. I was all green before my first mult. Mum saved all my feathers from my first molt, and second mult. She has a zip lock bag of green feathers and a second zip lock bag with bright orange and yellow feathers. :) I love the color yellow! I love to be with people who wear yellow shirts. Wow you are in Texas, I hear the weather is really hot there! It gets really cold here in new York, in the winter. Mum has an electric blanket for on top my cage in the winter, and I am always snuggling with her under the blankets. I have a tent I play in. I shred wood toys and corn pieces and throw them out of the tent and all over the house. Thats my way of getting attention. :) It's funny to hear the pieces of corn bing against the wall and TV. :)
What do you like to do in Texas?
Baby

Come visit me, Baby.

Hey Toby! Congratulations on getting a future girlfriend! And I think that Trixie is a lovely name. It goes well with your name! You're gonna have quite a flock by the time you're done.

  Oh wow! What an suprise LOL! I'm glad Toby is getting a "girlfriend" haha! And yes sun conures are way bigger than green cheeks. I was going to get one for my little brother a long time ago, but he never decided and plus he's obsessed with baseball and would not have enough time. Suns have a BIG personality so watch out! Just be sure and make things clear as to who's in charge...I had to. But Sonrie is everything I ever wanted ever in a parrot!!!! Love em! Cute as babies too. Well I'm glad your husband is getting into aviculture lol my parents just think they are birds and nothing special. Well here's a vote for Toby and soon Pebbles!!! I'll be watching for new pictures!

  Well Sarika is getting better and he will not fly away everytime I walk past his cage now. It's the trusting part now and it may take a long time, but hopefully it'll pay off.

  Hi there!
Hey, well that sounds pretty cool, my dad works all the time too, but he welds...or well he's a boss now and watches over the other welders (he has a bad back) but I never get to see him. (parents divorced) Oh yeah I've tried for three days now to try and order stuff for Sarika before he gets here and for the FIRST time my card will not work. I've been ordering from Drs Foster and Smith for 4 years!!! GRR!!! Oh and that's cute about Pebble's pet beta haha I have one too! Two birds, an African fat tail gecko, and a beta fish. My parents have like 20 horses, 6 goats, some chickens, 3 German shepards, and a Scottish terrier...way too much for me. Oh man you are lucky, I haven't been fishing in years and I love to be out there. I'm just rambling on. Today we went to a...well I guess you would call it a black church, but I love it so much...I even bought a book from them and it's just wonderful there at the atmosphere...they are in Leesville so it's not a long trip at all. Blah blah blah I've been off my medicine for a whole week and I can't think right...ADHD is so hard to cope with. Anyway everybody is good here and thanks for the votes and I'm returning the favor! See yah later!

grandma always was afraid of birds,so we think it will not change.she is ok,when birds are in the cage,but don't wanna close them.mommy told us a story.were our mommy was little girl,she always went with her dad to a pet store,to get fish food.there was that big scarlet macaw,her daddy would give her one finger,the bird would hold in her beak,shake it and say hello LOLA,which was her name.mommy thought,she wanna do this too,but when the macaw was going to get mommy's finger,she pulled it back and the bird bit mommy very bad,she still got the scare of it.after they got home,grandma asked what happens,oh she was mad with grandpa,two days later mommy had to go to the doctor,because she got a infection,but you see,mommy still loves birds,maybe she got infected by the bird bug from the macaw,hihihihihi.daddy and the kids,had lots of fun yesterday,but they didn't brought us nothing back.hmmmmffffffffffff.anyway,hope you have a great day.beaky kisses Bly

I've even taught him to fly back to me when we are outside and he's potty trained, yay! Your daughter is adorable and it looks like her and Pebbles have a great deal of fun haha!

  Welcome from Caymus
Hi Toby, and welcome to the birdchannel! I've heard lots of great things from Pebbles about you (even though I see you thinks she's kind of scary). hehehe Don't worry, mommy says I'm a very brave bird but the one thing I am afraid of or socks. Mom thinks it's because whenever he and daddy are about to leave the house, mom puts on socks, and I don't want her to leave so I get mad at the socks. (shrug) Big hugs for you, Toby, and a vote too!
