  Hi Aunt Samantha
I'm so happy to hear that mom's procedure went so well. I hope her eyes continue to heal and she's able to spend time with all of you.
Well, it's Good Friday, so mom made the Easter bread dough this morning. She usually does it today because she doesn't have museum or wildlife center responsibilities.
Bree came yesterday and Falco gave her and mom a run for their money! She flew all over the place until Bree finally caught her in mom's lightweight jacket, because the towel wasn't big enough. She left all of us our wings, though, because Daisy still hasn't learned manners with us birds, and mom wants all of us to have an escape, just in case.
Willie was the drama king, as usual, crying before Bree even got near him with the clippers. Mom thinks he's so funny! I was okay, except I bit mom pretty hard because she left my head out of the towel. She'll learn in time. We all got Falco's favorite treat, movie popcorn nutriberries, when Bree was done. She always says Millie and Lily are the best behaved, and they never want a treat for it.
Today, as well as the Easter bread, mom will boil eggs for deviled eggs, and make the hard custard that the family calls Easter Cheese. Everyone looks forward to it each year. Hope you are enjoying some sunshine today. It's a bit overcast here, but pretty nice, and it's supposed to hit the 70s on Sunday! I'll believe that when I see it, though. Here's a big hug today for you! Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Aunt Samantha
Wow, it's great to hear from you! How are your mom's eyes? Mom was thinking about her when I saw your blog. Mom started the shots, will get 3, then an evaluation. She thought it would only be 3, but some folks at the museum today told her it might be more, and that she wouldn't get the cataract taken care of for a long time. That kind of bummed her out.
I am as cute as a peep, but much more colorful. Plus, with all I'm saying now, nobody would ever take me for a chicken, heehee!
Mom had 2 tours this morning, one with Kindergarten kids and one with fifth grade. I like the pulling a train with your teeth analogy for the K kids, thanks, Cookie's mom! Mom always says it's like herding cats. They were pretty much all over the place. The second group was more fun for mom, they were from a rural area in PA, so knew a lot of the plants and animals they were looking at already. Mom likes the PA natural history tour, because she can go almost anywhere in the museum and talk about the state. If one area is crowded, she can move on. Tonight Bree is finally coming for the birdicures, so mom and her sister will go out early for dinner. They should get back in plenty of time.
I hope you are having a lovely day filled with sun, warmer temps, and lots of love. Hugs, your Nephew, Peppino

I'm so sorry I never got to fly by last night to visit you!Mom got home late and by the time she got through all the interruptions of cleaning our cages good as she couldn't clean us properly as she had to be out of the house early in order to get some things done and she still came home late anyway!Oh I just can't stand those beak trims at all! I figure if I stick my beak out and keep it out Mom will quit and I won't have to get it done!But is she persistent or what?Mom has got to get our weights in as she never got to get that done after having me chew her fingers off with my beak trim!We just couldn't believe that the rain we've been having all night would turn into snow yesterday morning but it did and it covered all the lawn,streets and flowers!You would think that its late April it should be getting warmer,not colder and go back to winter again,what's with this one day of summer/spring like weather on Saturday and here we go back to freezing again?Won't winter ever let go and go back to where he came from?Mom just can't wait for your sweet Parronts to get here!She's so eggcited and I just can't wait to have a party with all you guys!You really throw the best parties,that's for sure!Congratulate Mandy on having her new baby Abigail for us all here! Now wouldn't that be awesome to have her come too and visit with you while Mandy and Chris help do your room service?Mom and I are just laughing so hard as Doo will try and nip Mandy but if Chris is there watching Doo will only look and give out the Too Eye and checking him out,I think it might be that beard that will keep Doo's attention and he won't be trying to bite poor Mandy while she cleans you all up!Now that really would've been hilarious for Doo to have sunk his beak into some guys big butt like that!Maybe he had a reason to do so!LOL! I'm wishing you a great peaceful warm Easter with lots of good things to chow down too!Loving you always and forever,Kallie

What a beautiful day we are having for our trip. Everybirdie is having such a good time. There is an activity planned for each night on the boat.

Last night, there was music and refreshments, just a time of fellowship for all of us to get to know one another better. Refreshments will be served all day today as well.

Tonight, we are going to see the movie Rio 2. There will be fresh popcorn and drinks for everybirdie.

  Lifespan of a Diamond Dove
The lifespan of the diamond dove is different in captivity than if living in the wild.

In captivity, the diamond dove usually lives about 12-15 years. With proper care, they can even live into their 20's.

In the wild, however, diamond doves only live 3-5 years.

  Vocalization
Doves are relatively quiet birds. They make a variety of soft, low-pinched cooing sounds. Their cooing, however, may be persistent and repetitive. Many people find the cooing very pleasant.

  Supplements
Your dove should be given a vitamin/mineral supplement to assure you are providing all the nutrients it needs, especially if it is a finicky eater.

Note: Although the directions may tell you to put the vitamins in water, this is not good to do. Vitamins can settle to the bottom or lose its potency. It is best to put the supplement on soft foods or moist fruits or vegetables.

In addition to a vitamin/mineral supplement, doves need a small amount of grit. Unlike most birds, doves swallow their seeds whole and grit helps to digest them.

There are two kinds of grit:

Indigestible grit, which is sand or bits of ground rock. However, if your bird overeats this, it can become sick.

Digestible grit such as oyster shell, ground cuttlebone, or crushed eggshells pass safely through their system and is also a good source of calcium.

  A Healthy Diet (Continued)
PROTEIN

In addition to fruits and vegetables, you need to include protein in your dove's diet.

Insects are a good source of protein, although they are not necessary for your dove. You can either give them live insects or dried ones.

Another good source of protein are chopped hard-boiled eggs. This is important for breeding doves that are raising chicks. Crushed egg shells mixed in with the egg will provide calcium with the protein. Note: Eggs must be cooked thoroughly. Your bird can become sick from partially or uncooked eggs.

You can also give your dove tiny bits of thoroughly cooked meat or bits of cheese. However, this should be given only rarely and as a special treat.

  A Healthy Diet
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

Although all common pet doves are in the seed-eaters group, there are additional foods that can be a part their diet.

Seed-eating doves cannot tolerate large amounts of high-water-content foods. However, a daily treat of fresh food is fine for most doves.

Fruits and vegetables are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. When choosing produce, (one's that are safe for birds) bright colors are the healthiest choice. Example: sweet potatoes are more nutritious than white potatoes, red peppers have more vitamins than green peppers, and red grapes are higher in antioxidants than green grapes. Dark leafy green vegetables are also nutritious.

Some of the most favorite foods of the dove include:
shredded greens, grated carrots, finely chopped broccoli florets, diced apple, berries, fresh corn and peas. Your dove may not like all these foods, but as you experiment with differents ones, you will find that they may be some of their favorites.

  Doves As Pets
SETTING UP YOUR DOVE'S CAGE

Doves, like other pet birds, need a variety of perches to keep their feet exercised and comfortable. However, they do spend much of their time on the bottom of the cage, as I had mentioned in yesterday's blog. You can remove the wire tray at the bottom of the cage so your dove can walk comfortably. Besides your dove walking on the bottom and pecking for food, they spend a lot of time sitting at the bottom as well.

Doves also enjoy sitting in a nest. You will need to purchase a canary nest or you can make one of your own.

You will not need to purchase anything for your dove to play with. Doves do not play with toys or on a playgym.

  Doves As Pets
PURCHASING A CAGE

When purchasing a cage for a single or pair of ringneck or diamond doves, the measurements of the cage should be at least 24 inches in length, 16 inches wide and 18-24 inches in height.

Unlike parrots, doves do not climb, so the length of the cage is more important than the height.

However, doves do need to room to flap their wings and fly. They also spend a lot of time walking around on the bottom of the cage, so the bigger the cage, the better.

DETERMINING THE GENDER OF THE IMMATURE DOVE

If you decide to purchase a pair of young doves, you may want to buy a male and female.
The only way to determine the gender of the immature dove would be to submit a blood sample for DNA analysis or have your vet examine them endoscopically.

The DNA sexing is simple and noninvasive. It is performed from a drop of blood from a clipped toenail or emerging blood feather.

Some pet stores can have this done for you or your vet can perform the test. You may want to have this done if you are interested in breeding your doves in the future.

  Doves As Pets
INTRODUCTION

Doves are gentle birds that are hardy. They are quiet birds, have a peaceful nature, and don't require as much complicated care as other species of birds. This makes them a good pet for the beginner.
Diamond doves are even good pets for young children as long as an adult supervises the care.
Since doves are quiet birds, they are good to keep in apartments where you may not be able to keep a noisy parrot.

Doves can be kept as single pets or in pairs but they do better in pairs. If you keep a single dove be prepared to give it lots of attention and interaction.

  Introduction to Doves (Conclusion)
Doves are divided into two groups: seed-eaters and fruit-eaters. Fruit-eaters are difficult birds to maintain in captivity and are not suitable as pets. All common pet doves are in the seed-eating group. (However, doves need food, in addition to their seeds, that I will mention at a later time in a blog on diets.) The most common pet doves are the diamond dove and the ringneck dove.

This week I have introduced doves and gave you information, which included their family, their origin,
and even how diamond doves acquired their name. I hope you found this information interesting as well as educational.

Next week, I will provide information on the care of doves as pets.

Skin sis just called Mom and she is in need of surgery as she has hip displaysure.She is going to get an MRI on Wednesday and then she also has curvature of the spine.She has been in a lot of pain for quite some time and they're just finding this out now with an xray they just took last week.They have been giving her steroids and ibruprofen for the pain which hasn't been doing much for her pain.Oh what greyt news that the doc don't want to see your sweet Mom for 3 weeks!We are all sooo eggcited about that!See?We all knew that your sweet Mom is going to be all right!And things will start to be going back to normal for all of you with all the cuddles and snuggles too!Oh is Josh really fresh grabbing the glasses off your sweet Mom's head like that!Oh no!

  The Diamond Dove's Origin,
The diamond dove is native to Australia. They exist near water but where it is lightly or semi-dry, which is in Central, West, and Northern Australia. They are occasionally seen in Southern Australia in parks and gardens in the Centre(the sparsely inhabited central region of Australia) where it is very dry.

As part of my BOTM campaign, I will be taking a trip to my native country to see some of the tourist attractions. If any of my BC friends would like to join me for this adventure, please let me know in your blog. This will take place toward the end of the month after I have finished giving you my information on doves.

We had a nice sunny day here with temps at 48,there was a wind but enough to make it cold but if you stood in the sun you could feel the warmth from the sunshine!Its supposed to be colder tomorrow! Mom was out nearly all late morning and most of the afternoon trying to help skin bro move a big hot water heater onto his trailer in our driveway!What a job of trying to get that thing in the right position and skin bro had to push it with his truck a little to get it to move so he could get it between the trees and the trailer to the back of the trailer to get it up the ramp and he and Mom worked at it and finally got it in!Now Mom has a backache and she's got to go out tomorrow for the dump run with Nana and some errands that never got done on Wednesday. Candida loves to play that game chase daddy around the house!She got to dine with dad and shared some of his sausage with him had a little corn,a little from his fruit cup and then she loved eating his pink lemonade cake with coconut creme filling,you should've seen her make a pig of herself on that one!When it was time for her to go back to our room the little brat wouldn't let Mom catch her,she had too much fun climbing on dads head and preening his hair,and strutting her stuff in front of him on the table!I only wish I can do that game!
Now that would teach those mailbox beating brats a thing or two about the kind of games they are playing with our parronts mailboxes! I'd love to see their faces when the skunk gets them in their vehicles! It sure sounds like you and the husbird had quite the fun trying to perch on Doo's playgym! Its a good thing that Doo wasn't out there or you two would've been in a lot of trouble!
It makes us feel good knowing that Starbuck is with all the rest of your sweet frothers and Gabbie!She and Starbuck had quite the birdsonalities that's for sure!

  Introduction to Doves (Continued)
BEAKS

Doves have a narrow beak that is slightly curved at the tip. Unlike most birds, doves drink by sucking up water through their beak like a straw, without tilting their head back to swallow. The base of their beak is relatively soft and hardens toward the tip.


LEGS

Their legs are relatively short and clearly scaled. They have strong feet and nails. Their toes are anisodactyl, which means that three toes are pointed forward and one backward.

Oh do I ever miss you sooo much also!I was only sooo happy to have you and the husbird come to the Milonga with us all!I do wonder if Starbuck is getting to know our fister Angel Gabbie,they would love each other so much,such birdsonalities on the two of them!Now I don't think Candi would mind being with Angel,she won't be two until August,there won't be too much difference in age between the two of them!Now that sounds like a greyt idea!Now that mailbox setup is really ingenious!I'll have to tell my dad and show him how your sweet daddy got your mailbox all set up!The same thing happens around here,either they're playing baseball mailbox or slamming into them with their vehicles!I'm just so eggcited to be able to converse with you again!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,Loving you always and forever,Kallie

We almost missed Coconut and Panther's wedding and came to it in the last 15 minutes or so as Mom was out late on Friday and never got the message that they were even getting married until she saw it from the night before which must've come in late after she shut the computer off and she never had a chance to put the computer on in the morning before she left!Our heads are still spinning over poor little Starbuck,such a sweet little thing and gone way too soon!And what a bizzare thing like you said to have taken her life away from us!Knowing her birditude like Candi's is she'll be taking charge up on the Bridge and getting everybirdie in line!Oh Carter,Please do come over with Kevin,I would so love to have the two of you help me rip into some of these boxes!Now I'm loaded in them,Mom has no place to store them eggcept in the sunroom and the workout room!We could have a blast!

We are all sooo upset to hear that poor little Starbuck has that fluid in her abdomen and Mom and everyone here is praying for supernatural healing!Nana,skin sis,skin bro and even dad will be praying for her,Mom had put Starbucks name in our book of special intentions at church along with your sweet Momma's name for healing and comfort from the pain she's in!We wrap our love and prayers all around Starbuck 24/7 non stop! Please kiss her little head for us all and tell her we are all there for her!And Aunt Jeanne who must be soo upset by this whole thing!Please,Please keep us updated on how that sweet little baby is doing!
Dad called Mom tonight sometime after he got back to work and he had to talk to Candida on the phone!She was so upset that he left and didn't share dinner with her,and was a rambunctious mess,as soon as she had her conversation with dad on the phone,with real words,daddy flies,Candida's daddy,Hi!I'm Candida! she was able to settle down and go to bed!Dad was laughing and she cheered him up as he wasn't in a good mood having to go right back to work just a few minutes after he got home!
We are soo praying for sweet little Starbuck and even dad feels so bad knowing how much he loves my bratty fister,you have us all here standing behind you in prayer! Loving you always and forever and sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,Kallie

  Hi Aunt Samantha
I saw her, I saw Miranda! She was in the captain's quarters for awhile, because she was so scared of Mrs. Al B. Tross, who landed in the crow's nest. I haven't seen Cookie or Cubird yet, but I haven't been checking the sick bay much either. The night Captain Sam was sick, I kept watch outside his room to make sure he was safe. I think it's going to be a great adventure on the Pearl. Even going through the Panama Canal was a great adventure to me! Hugs, Peppino

I will try and get you a portrait of you and Carter on the Love Boat! You two will look sooo cool in the Love Boat Pic! I will see if I can sweet talk my way into getting you a pic!My fister Candida does that to Mom whenever she is cleaning our cages I get locked into mine as Candi and Dixie are able to move about and Candi just loves to dive bomb Mom and get on her head as she runs around cleaning,the other day Mom put her in our big playgym and she flew out to the kitchen to find Mom who was preparing our breakfast so she slid down off Mom shoulder and started eating from Dixie's dish and Mom had to shoo her away as she had already put the meds in it!Oh its just sooo cold out there to go grocery shopping and Mom has so many errands to run tomorrow,bills to pay and things to pick up for dad.And we're supposed to get snow tomorrow!YUCK! I'm so done with snow~cold and ice~Let's bring on the sunshine,the warmth of the sun,the greyt smelling spring time air!Mom just can't wait for the visit with your wonderful Mom tonight!

How good it is to see you again! I have really missed you,I really wished you and the husbird could've been to the Milonga last month!I think that is sooo crafty of the two of you taking each a side on your sweet Mom and with your very loud conure voices scream in her ear at once! I do that singly to my Mom and make her ears ring!Its a wonder that your poor Mom won't be coming out of the bird room with loud ringing in her ears and become completely deaf!Either that or try to get her imbalanced so she can't walk straight and everyone takes her for a drunk!But you're right it really should do to decongest her ears!She'll be able to hear from NJ all the way to CA!We won't miss the rodeo and the tell all sounds really interesting!

I'm so sorry I couldn't get to visit you yesterday but Mom was in the middle of doing our visits when all of a sudden everything went dark!We lost our power with all the strong winds blowing and Mom called NStar to tell them and to find out when they were going to get our power back on and they told her two hours and it never came so she kept calling and they kept telling her another hour.This happened around 7pm and it was starting to get cold in the house so Mom took Dixie,and me and my baby fister Candida and put me in my sleeping box,while Dixie and Candi went under Dixie's blankie which went under her coat and Peepers,Mario and Celine stayed in the bird room and Mom shut the door to keep what heat was left in there in,she just dreaded putting the coal stove on and skin bro was going to come and pick us all up and take us to Nana's house but it was so windy and the roads were really bad and Mom didn't want him to get stuck like he did last time!Finally after several more calls to NStar our power came back on at 12:30 this morning.It sure felt good to be warm again!After the power came back on my Mom made 2 trays of Zucchini pizza and 2 loaves of Chocolate Zucchini bread.My dad finally got to come home around 3 this afternoon and Mom made him dinner.He took a shower and then went to bed.He has to get up at 5am tomorrow and go back to work to finish up what they couldn't get done today.Then he's got to work his regular daytime hours on Tuesday and Wednesday and then work overnight for the snow removal and thats going to be another long week for him,We'll get to see dad sometime in the spring maybe!And we're supposed to get more snow on Tuesday!Mom's eyes are so blurry she can barely see the words on the page!She had a lousy nights sleep on the couch with Dixie and Candi and dad kept calling her to make sure she was okay and that we were'nt freezing with the power being gone again.Mom didn't get much sleep at all!Hopefully when she is finally done trying to catch us up on our blogs she will go up to bed with dad!Now if only I can make soup again with my pellets but No! we have to have those water bottles which make it very hard to take a shower with also!Our prayers go out for your poor sweet parronts to start feeling better,it just so lousy this cold,snow and icy weather and its dragging on way too long!

Happy Valenbirds Day to you! I have definitely missed you sooo much and I can understand what your poor sweet Momma is going through with these computer problems!They can be so frustrating and aggravating to the max! Oh,you are a fister and frother after my own heart!Breaking out of the cage is my specialty so much so that Mom had to buy special clips to keep me in my cage!She still can't figure out how I can get myself out from the inside of my cage,I even did it to the fid sitter and got out on her!The other day Mom had Candida in the acrylic cage and I was working on getting that latch moved so I could beat her up and Mom caught me in there and threw me out of the room!All of us will eat anything but you sound like Bella and Trixie being so picky about the food they get!They too are doing the same thing you are doing,throwing their pellets around and Trixie II will eat nothing but Madagascar mix!Its driving poor Nana crazy as she wants them to eat a balanced diet!So far we've been eating everything Mom gives us!The tiels don't like the banana shapes in their pellets again and are hucking them out of the bowl and onto the floor!I say lets all have a big food fight,that sounds like so much fun!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,Kallie

  Hi Aunt Samantha
YAY, we will still be able to talk on the new website!
I'm going to be the cabin boy for Capt. Sam! I'm so excited, it's my first pirate adventure. I hope I don't get seasick. It's snowing today again, and mom has to pick up Polly's meds at the vet. Her neighbor is going to drive her, since the driveway needs shoveled, and it hasn't stopped snowing yet. The vet is only open til noon today. Hope you are having a good day, hugs, Peppino

If you are interested in the new website that will take over our club when BC shuts us down, please go to Squeaky's page, 28415, and let her know so we can get it going!
We loved the Superbowl and the outcome last night, the Hawks owned it from the beginning. Mom thinks somebody made a bundle of cash in Vegas for betting that a safety would be the first score of the game! We are also thrilled to see Angel Rainbow and Pretty Baby as our BOTD today, we missed them when they were gone, even though we don't write often.
Today mom did the raccoon cages outdoors again, then she went to the mammal nursery to clean. There were only 5 possums in there, all adults, as well as a turtle. It was a pretty light day, but that was okay, since she had to shovel the driveway yet again to get up there. We are so tired of the snow! Hope we will have good weather soon.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of love today. Hugs, Peppino
