I was in the pet shop where my Mom use to go to buy tropical fish. She'd say hello to me every time she went in. I was there a total of nine months. I started plucking during that time because I was in the busiest part of the store. My previous owner would come by to love and cuddle me sometimes. I just don't understand why I couldn't go back home with him. Would you believe he traded me for a $500 salt water aquarium set up! Yes, he really did! Once I started plucking they started spraying me with Apple Bitters. I hated that with a passion! It was during one of those visits that my Mom fell in love with me and decided to take me home with her. I've been living with her now for about nine years..

Hi! My name is Siesta-July 22, 2012 Gone with my heart!

I am a Moluccan Cockatoo from Dayton, OH.

Big Girl, Naked Chicken, Mom's BIG baby,

19 years old   F

Moluccan Cockatoo

I love corn, corn bread, fried breaded eggplant, frosting, pizza crust, oatmeal, and my Mom's yummy birdie breads.

My favorite hang out spots are with my Mom and in my cage.

I hate showers and spray bottles with a passion because after I started plucking my feathers the pet shop I was in sprayed me with Apple Bitters. YUK!

I love cuddling with my Mom and I love all the yummy foods she shares with me. You can't decorate a birthday cake around me. I just have to have some of the frosting!Mom makes a special birdy bread that is absolutely delicious. I just can't get enough of it.

I beg by turning my head up side down (both sides). Then I push out the door that holds my food dish. You just can't eat in the same room with me or my friend, Baby (sulfur-crested cockatoo) because we always beg for whatever we see you eating..

  Hi Siesta,
It is nice to meet you, you sound like you have a really great home. I am Peach, a Moluccan too. I have been with my "real" mom and dad now for almost 3 years but am 18 years old. It is really nice to hear that you have been with your family for 9 years. Mom and Dad say that this is it for me too. I am still always learning new things, like yesterday I figured out how to get out of my cage by opening my water dish and climbing out the opening, smart eh. Talk to you later.

  Hey there Siesta! Thank you and your entire group for stopping by my FPA page! First of all, Mom saw that you live in Dayton and now she is saying something about how she wants to go to Friendly's for some ice cream. What ever that means! Hehe. You know what? Your story sounds a lot like my best friend Munchie's story. He is the Sun Conure that is in the pictures with me. Munchie was "pawned" to a pet store for only $50 when he was 8 months old. Mom knows the owners of this store really well, so they asked Mom if she was interested in him. Of course she said yes and he has been here for almost 2 years now. The people who pawned him came back for him a few days after Mom got him. The funny thing was that they were trying to use lap top computers to trade for Munchie. SOunds kinda funny to us! Would you and your flock like to become members of FPA? Mom and I just started that page so that there was a safe place for pluckers to go without being judged by anyone. I am lucky because I have never completely plucked my feathers out. I always leave the peachy chest feathers in and Mom says that I am beautiful no matter if I have feathers or not! How do you like living with the other birds? I live with Munchie, Johann (a Dove,) Bonney, Clyde, Gonzo ('tiels,) and Campbell the Lovebird. I get along with all of them most of the time (except Campbell scares me.) Don't tell anyone that I am scared of a Lovebird! Anyway, I hope all of you are having a great SUnday and come back to see us when you get a chance!

I can't believe I haven't met you before. I'm Romeo, and it's really nice to meet such a beautiful too. I see you come from a big family. And how wonderful that Mom rescued you from that pet store. You and I have something in common, I hate spray bottles also, I like my shower in the rain if I can get it. I don't mind the shower so much, cause I always get cuddled afterwards. Stop by and say hi. Romeo

  HELLO all our friends. We finally bugged Momma enough that she had to type our blog for us. Momma has been busy revamping the "Love Shack". We are getting more hanging play areas and a new fountain and even bird safe trees. Momma says its because she wants us birdies to live in more of a natural surrounding. Hey, what Momma wants...Momma gets...us birdies too. Not much going on here in the Great White North. At last Autumna and Holiday are free to fly again. The Cockatiel's eggs did not hatch so Momma said that it was safe for us to come out and play. Autumn was sooo excited that he chewed several holes in Momma's shirt today as she was working in our room. Its better he chews an old shirt than the wood work... The weather is warming up outside. We have had rain for the last two day. All our snow is gone now. All we see out the window is dirty property. Momma says soon everything will be nice and green. Perhaps we can get outside to enjoy all that warm sunshine. Polly and Little Man are doing rather well. Soon they will be moving in together and then coming to join the rest of us birdies in the Love Shack. Soon we won't have to scream back and forth to one another. Henry the Cockatoo is doing great. He was upstairs yesterday to visit all us birdies. He is sooo much bigger than the rest of the flock. He was sooo happy to see other birdies that he bounced up and down on Momma's shoulder as he called out to everyone. Momma says that Henry will not be joining us in the Love Shack because he is to big for us smaller birdies. He can only come and visit when Momma brings him in. Well the good thing about that is that we won't have to share our toys with him...hehehe Momma is going to add pictures of our aviary so everyone can see what a wonderful room we have. She hopes that others might get some ideas to help other birdies enjoy their play time. Well our friends it time to go. Momma has to feed feathers and skin kids alike. Have a wonderful evening. Vote for all. Birdie hugs and kisses from The Great White North Gang.

  I'm Back
Well hello everyone. I've been away for a few days busy with family and feathers. I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter...Happy Easter to all. Its quiet now so I thought I would report to all my friends on BC. Well...I did it again.....yep another bird...lol. Polly is her name...a Quaker....check out her page on BC. Both Polly and Little Man are room mates. Separate cages for now. I'm hoping they will get along and beable to share one cage. So far everything between them looks good. They chat back and forth all day. Polly is starting to rub off her good eating habits onto Little Man. He watches her eat and now he is eating other things besides seeds. I'm very happy with that. Little Man is doing funny things with sticks. I think he is trying to build a nest...mmmmmm I wonder. I'll keep you posted on these two. I feel so bad that Autumn and Holiday are still under lock down because of the nesting Cockatiels. They both call and call trying to get me to let them out. Their calls tug at my heart and I can't stand for them to be locked up. However they do get extra treats (thats for my guilt) and they are allowed flight time during the day when I can sit down in the Love Shack to keep an eye on them. I'm sure they will be real happy when all this fuss is over. So will I. Lance and Cinnamon are still sitting on their eggs. I never see both of them out at the same time. Lance is the one that spends most of the time on the nest. I have not checked yet to see how many eggs they have. I'm afraid to disturb them since it is their first clutch. As for Babygirl and Prettyboy...well as in the past they have left the nest. They started out with 5 eggs..two ended up broken and the third I'm sorry to say that I sucked up with the vacuum. I did'nt mean it...honest. I had to pick up the last two so I could finish cleaning up without damaging the eggs. Babygirl was very quick to gently roll them off my hand one at a time to put them back into her nest. She looked at me funny as if to say...OK where is the third one. Can birds count...lol...I wonder. I'm sure they have lost interest in the eggs but I will leave them for another week so I don't upset them. Everyone here at home are well and enjoyed the long weekend. I'm glad its a quiet day today. I have so much to do and find it hard with a house full of skin kids. Well my friends, this is a short message for me. My tea is finished and I hear my chores calling me. Have a wonder day. Love from Jennifer and the Great White North Gang. V4all

  Hello from Jennifer and the Gang
Hello our friends. Well the weekend is upon us once again. Looks like rain here in Canada. Thank goodness its not snow. Its been a quiet few days. Not much going on in the Love Shack. I think all the birdies are on their best behaviour. Holiday is still under house arrest because I have two pairs of Cockatiels nesting and of coarse they can't use the nest boxes. They have picked spots under cabinets in their room. This will be the first time that a new pair have decided to be parents. I wonder if anything will come of it. I guess time will tell. Autumn is being a good boy. He knows I am still upset with him. He is trying everything to get my attention. He will fly on me and want to snuggle instead of chewing on my buttons etc. I wonder just how much they do understand. All the Finches are happy little birds. They have been allowed out of their cage to enjoy some free time. Something that I have not allowed them to do for awhile. I just might let them free like the other birds in the room. I have noticed that they are singing more so I guess that is a sure sign that they are happy. Hell..whats abit more poop to clean up daily! Little Man is enjoying his new adventures. He is becoming a real pet. I use to keep my curtains closed until the morning but because he was squawking earlier in the morning for me to get up and open them I decided to leave them open at night. This only worked until I started to take him with me in other parts of the house. Now he has caught on to the idea that if he squawks more and louder then I will get up and take him with me. You know what...it works...lol. Smart little thing. Today we started out on the perch in the kitchen. Ater picking him up 3 times from the floor I finally caught on to the fact that he wanted to be on my shoulder. He was more interested in me than the other birdies. So like a good Momma I did what I was told. He stayed with me while I did my chores....even as I talked on the phone...thus adding his two cents in when ever he felt the urge. Which was often.. For some reason he is very interested in the phone. Just what I need...another child who likes the phone. His progress in coming along great. I am very sure he will be a great little companion for me and the family. I just wanted to thank all my friends on BC for their blogs. I really enjoy reading about all the other families that enjoy birds as part of their lives. My guys sure have improved my life in ways I never thought possible. Keep up the good work my friends on BC. Your stories etc brings much joy to my heart. We all know that smiles and laughter plays a major role in all of our lives. Have a wonderful weekend my friends. Keep the blogs coming. Love from Jennifer and my beloved Great White North Gang...XOXOXO V4 all

Flying by with a quick vote and a warm hello. Autumn was the bad one today. Momma let the Budgies out to fly and he started to beat up on one poor little one. This little birdie just stood there and Momma ran into the room and scooped him up. He is a young baby and does not know what aggression is. All is good...no lose of feathers like Babygirl. So Autumn is in the dog house but not under house arrest like Holiday. Have a great day. V4all

Come visit me, Babygirl, Holiday & Autumn.
