5PM CENTRAL TIME APRIL 7, 2011
KACEY CAME HOME IN GREAT SPIRITS AND VERY HUNGRY. SHE GAVE THE DR A TALKING TO BEFORE LEAVING THE BIRDIE HOSPITAL. THE FINAL DIAGNOSIS WAS A YOLK EMBOLISM. ITS JUST AS DANGEROUS AS PERITONITIS BUT WE WERE VERY LUCKY. KACEY'S BODY WAS ABLE TO ABSORB THE EMBOLISM AND NO DAMAGE WAS DONE. IT COULD HAVE BEEN SO MUCH WORSE. SHE WAS VERY CLOSE TO DEATHS DOOR YESTERDAY BUT YOU WOULDN'T KNOW IT TO LOOK AT HER TODAY. SHE DID LOOSE SOME WEIGHT BUT I EXPECT SHE WILL BE PUTTING IT BACK ON IN NO TIME. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS.
APRIL 7, 2011 KACEY UPDATE
VET CALLED THIS MORNING AND SAID KACEY MADE A REMARKABLE COMEBACK. SHE IS EATING AND POOPING REGULARLY. VET IS KEEPING HER TILL LATE THIS AFTERNOON. WANTS TO GIVE HER ANOTHER ANTIBIOTIC INJECTION AND CALCIUM SHOT. KACEY IS TRULY A FIGHTER AND THE POWER OF PRAYER FROM ALL HER FIRENDS HELPED. THANK YOU.
APRIL 6, 2011 KACEY IS RUSHED TO THE VET. SHE HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH YOLK PERITONITIS, ITS WHERE AN EGG BREAKS INSIDE THE OVIDUCT CAUSING A BAD INFECTION. SHE IS ON ANTIBIOTICS AND OXYGEN. PLEASE PRAY FOR HER.

When my tiel Digger died suddenly in June of 2005, the breeder who I got SweetPepper, my sennie from had a special needs tiel. She called us and asked if we would take care of a young tiel who needed some special care. We said yes and Kacey came to live with us in August of 2005 at age 3 mos. She had no tail feathers, she couldn't fly and was very klutzy. We fell in love with her and here she stayed. She was gift to help with the loss of Digger. She isn't a replacement for Digger, but having her helped with his loss. Kacey still has trouble flying, she now has short tail feathers, and we love her dearly. HATCHDATE: May 20, 2005======

THE PLUMBER CAME THIS MORNING TO FIX THE GARBAGE DISPOSAL. HE COULDNT BELIEVE HOW BAD MOMS HANDS LOOK AFTER WORKING TRYING TO REMOVE THE MEASURING SPOON FROM THE DISPOSAL AND TOLD HER SHE NEVER SHOULD HAVE TRIED THAT. HE WORKED AND WORKED AND COULDNT REMOVE THE SMALL MEASURING SPOON. HE FINALLY PULLED THE WHOLE DISPOSAL OUT AND PLACED IT ON THE KITCHEN COUNTER AND WORKED AND WORKED SOME MORE. FINALLY HE TURNED TO MOM AND ASKED MOM TO ONCE AGAIN TRY AND REMOVE THE MEASURING SPOON SINCE HIS HANDS WERE TOO BIG. (MOMS HANDS LOOK LIKE SHE HAS BEEN IN A 10 ROUND BOXING MATCH WEARING NO BOXING GLOVES) MOM ONCE AGAIN ATTEMPTED TO REMOVE THE MEASURING SPOON. NO LUCK! THE PLUMBER THEN SAID IT LOOKS LIKE YOU WILL NEED TO BUY A NEW DISPOSAL BUT LETS TRY ONE MORE THING. HE REMOVED THE DRAIN FROM THE DISPOSAL AND THE SPOON CAME RIGHT OUT. THE PLUMBER SAID THIS WAS A FIRST FOR HIM AND WILL NOW KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT TIME HE EVER FINDS SOMETHING LIKE THIS AGAIN. TOTAL PLUMBING BILL $118. FOR $100 MORE MOM COULD HAVE HAD A NEW DISPOSAL. ANYWAY EVERYTHING IS NOW WORKING AND MOM WENT TO THE HARDWARE STORE AND BOUGHT A DRAIN COVER FOR THE SINK. WHAT A RELIEF THATS OVER.

  Hi Kacey
our sweet precious little fister!Oh how awful to have snow still in April!Whatever happened to our getting Spring and warm weather and lots of sunshine?We had rain all last night and into this morning,then it stopped and the skies are gray and cloudy,its 66 here but it sure doesn't feel like it and the temps are supposed to drop and only get colder!
Lexi is so funny loving the snow like that!Mom remembers the dogs she used to have never liked getting their feet in the cold snow and you'd have to practically push them out the door to go potty!
It was good that Mom and GMa had a great time at Bunco,maybe next time they'll win!
The vet keeps telling Mom that I'm having seizures on purpose,now why would I want to have a seizure for,they're so debilitating and frightening!Mom just couldn't believe what she was hearing from them!Mom is just carefully watching my body language to see when one will be coming on.
Mom is going to see if she can make it tomorrow to skin sis' surgeons appointment to see if she can understand what is going on.Maybe if Mom goes she can understand what they are talking about!
My Mom believes that your sweet Mom has white coat syndrome also,that's always what happened to Nana whenever she went to get her Blood Pressure checked,she would be fine and then she'd get into that office and her BP would skyrocket and Nana never had high BP,in fact she was always on the low side.Mom and I sure don't blame your Mom for not wanting to be on all kinds of pills either!My Mom feels the same way!She'll even go without taking anything for a headache until it really gets unbearable before she'll take anything!
Mom will be sure to tell your sweet Mom eggactly what's going on with skin sis and what kind of surgery she's going to have.She will get him to write down the names of everything so she can have a better understanding of it and then tell your sweet Mom so she can tell her and maybe explain it to my Mom if she doesn't understand it!And that's a greyt idea too to look it up on the computer also!
Mom is trying to get everything done in the house today before she has to go out on her errands tomorrow.She'd like to wash the floors but if its going to continue to rain it will be useless as they will only get dirty again with everyone coming in from the wet driveway!Its quite windy out there again today!I only wish that we could all have the sunshine back and warm weather and all this cold stuff and white stuff will go back to where it came from,to the North Pole!We need to be able to get back outside again!
We're sending you all our love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and lots of prayers for your sweet wonderful Mom for her lab work to be all positive,for GPa and for Gma!Nana sends you all her love for always being there and sending her all those prayers,she so appreciates them,she too sends along prayers for the whole family also!We all love you all soo sooo much! And all three of us are sending you a vote t

  Hi, Kacey
Cannot trust us fids with any other critters, sometimes not even each other! Know there are a couple of fids on BC recently attacked by flockmates so just can't be too safe. Furball here also trolls around the bottom of our birdhouse for seeds but mostly shells are to be found.

More snow? Yikes! We like a cool spring, but that is winter temps being in the 30s. Yesterday our temps went up from the low 70s on Sun to 77! Almost too warm, but the cool breeze helped so had the windows open and no need of a/c (which goes on if temps are over 80).

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  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.

  Hi Kacey
my sweet precious little fister!Skin sis made that for me and I'm going to award it to the first one who guesses what the theme is in Name That Tune this week.Me and Kallie are subbing this week for NTT(231616)Along with the jukebox there will be another prize and you can chose from the one on my page,Kallies page or Peepers if you win!
I did have another seizure on Saturday when Mom did my beak.She gave me lots of breaks as always but I still had one!She walked with me all around our yard showing me the pretty flowers and had me listen to the birds chirping and she sat with me in the warm sunshine and I finally came out of it.But she kept holding me to make sure I was completely out of it.
Poor Lexi,being in such pain like that and needing surgery.It must be so hard for her to go outside especially in the damp wet weather,our prayers are with her so she can start to feel better and have the surgery done soon.
I know what that's like having to stay in lockdown til my Mom gets home.I have to stay in my cage until Mom has the time to be there to watch me on the playgym floor as I tend to want to jump down and she's afraid I'll get hurt on the hardwood floors.I can see how it would be hard on GPa to watch both you and SweetPepper and Lexi!We all wish your sweet Mom and GMa a good time at Bunco and wish them luck on winning too!
Mom,Nana and all of us here are praying that your sweet Mom's Blood pressure is normal,we all want her to feel better and my Mom and Nana can understand about not wanting to take those meds all the time for it!She will be in our thoughts and prayers all day today.Please let us know how she did,we do worry so much about her!
Mom is going to see if she can go with skin sis to her surgeons appointment on Friday to see just what is going to be happening with the surgery.Mom isn't sure that skin sis is understanding just what is going on and there are several things mixed into the conversation when Mom tries to ask her questions about it!My Mom so agrees with your Mom about the pins thing.As soon as Mom finds out whats going on with skin sis she will be able to let your sweet Mom know as she too is kind of confused herself!
Its a bright sunny day here and 66 degrees but the wind is quite strong so if the wind would stop it would be so enjoyable to sit outside on the deck but not right now!Mom is going to try and get some of the housework done as she couldn't yesterday with skin sis here and all that baking and Kallie and Celine's beak trims going on!
I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and lots of prayers for your sweet Mom for her Blood Pressure to come down to normal,for GPa to start feeling better and for GMa and prayers for Lexi so she's not in so much pain anymore! We just can't thank you enough for all the prayers you are sending us!We all so appreciate them and I so can't thank you enough for always being here for me!I love you sooo sooo much my precious little fister

  Hi, Kacey
Thanks for liking our derby hats. We looked at a lot of 'em before deciding we would wear similar ones.

The furball is about 35 pounds and very solidly muscled. She still tends to jump up on people in eggcitement when greeting 'em (loves attention) and keep trying to break her of that. Skinsis fiancé sorta rescued furball as a puppy so no idea how big she was gonna get as adult.

We are not out at the same time as furball as can't trust her with us. Doubt she'd hurt us (she didn't harm the wild baby bird she found outside learning to fly and carried around in her mouth) but we do not want to end up in her mouth. Can't blame SP for trying to get Lexi, but also for her safety to end up in lockdown.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

MOM WAS COOKING ALL DAY AND SOMEHOW HER STAINLESS STEEL MEASURING SPOONS GOT DOWN IN THE GARBAGE DISPOSal. when mom heard something was in there when she ran it she immediately shut it off. and found the pieces of the measuring spoons. unfortunately one of the handles got stuck in there and no matter how much mom jiggled it won't come out so she has to call someone to repair it. MOMS HANDS ARE ALL BLOODY NOW FROM WORKING INSIDE THERE. its always something. mom feels maybe she should just sit in the closet so she can't do anymore damage.

  Hi Kacey
It's a c/p night again, sorry! Mom had a busy day yesterday, even though she wasted a couple of hours going to that event. There was a mix up and they weren't expecting her, so there was no table for her to set things up. They offered her a tray table, like you'd set a TV dinner or snack on, but she was worried about children knocking over the quails' cage, so she declined and drove back to the center.
It has been a gorgeous weekend, and some of our daffodils have finally bloomed! Today it hit over 80 degrees, YAY! Mom attended a parrot raising class this morning, then another meeting for a new group called BirdSafe Pittsburgh. They are recruiting volunteers to walk the city early in the morning during spring and fall migrations to pick up any injured migratory birds in the city and get them to the wildlife center for rehabilitation. Mom offered to transport birds a couple of days a week.
Once she got home and cleaned our cages, it was evening and she was tired, so she sat in front of the TV staring stupid all night! Anyway I hope you had a glorious day and got some sun and attention. Hugs, Willie and Peppino

our sweet precious little fister!That was a really long time to be outside with Lexi,all that fresh air must have really wiped both your sweet Mom and Lexi out,and how funny that Lexi loved sleeping on the couch for most of the rest of the day!Oh how incredible that your sweet Mom got up at 1:30 in the morning to get all the votes in!Mom was up til nearly two am trying to finish our blogs because she was so busy all day and never had the chance to get them done!
Mom will find out on Wednesday just whats going on with skin sis and her surgery,she's not getting a hip replacement as she would have to go to Boston and that's an hour and a half away from here.Mom thinks its mainly going to be getting the surgery for the hip displaysure and getting the bone put back in the socket.As soon as Mom finds out what she's getting I will be able to tell you and your sweet Mom!
Mom stayed with me all night last night and wouldn't put me in my cage til she felt assured that I would be all right to be alone for the rest of the night.I slept so nicely on my porch perch!We are sending you all our prayers for GPa,GMa and your wonderful Mom for healing and comfort and peace from pain.
Nana sends you all her love for always thinking of her and she can't tell you just how much the prayers you send mean to her!And skin sis sends you her love also,she just couldn't believe that anyone cared!Mom and I told her that we are family and we always care for one another!If only you knew just how much we all love you soo!You always bring us joy and sunshine when we get to talk to you!

  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.

  Hi, Kacey
The furball here belongs to skinsis. The critter is almost 3 years old and there's an old pic in our gallery of her looking out the screen door. We are let out in the bedroom with the door shut. Sometimes our birdhouse will be pushed into the living room, but then sometimes furball stands on the back of the couch and stares at us, so that is a tad unnerving, but we are never left alone with her either.

When the weather is nice furball does spend most of the day outside sunbathing, watching people walk by, seeing cars, bikes, barking at the mailman, etc.

We got our derby pic done and posted in our gallery. Mom made sure to start with a non blurry pic of us and it turned out a lot better. All entered in the contest too.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

My skin sis isn't having hip replacement surgery,Mom really doesn't understand just eggactly what is going to happen but she has an appointment with her surgeon on Wednesday afternoon so we shall be able to get more information then,he will be telling her what the MRI said and what they will be doing,they did ask her if she wanted a hip replacement but she would have to go to Boston for that and they told her to wait til she saw the surgeon and had him read the MRI to her!
Mom did Dixie's beak and all our nails today outside on the deck!For a change we got to enjoy some of the nice weather that has been coming through here!We are supposed to get cooler temperatures here tomorrow,only in the 50's and then heavy rain on Tuesday.
It sounds like your sweet Mom will be going for lots of walks with Lexi,I am only hoping that my Mom will start taking us for walks in our stroller!
My Mom is going to start working out on her treadmill here as she really misses her workouts now!She only hopes that skin sis's surgery isn't long and drawn out so they can go back to the gym again!My Mom can't believe how good your sweet Mom is on the treadmill,she just has to get herself back to where she was before she quit working out!I do hope your Mom gets to relax tomorrow from all the busy day she had with taking GPa and GMa to the drs for their bloodwork,she must be so egghausted right about now!

my precious little fister!we are so sorry to hear that Donna Rae Allen has passed away!We are sending our condolences to your sweet Mom.Mom had gone to church and had put Donna Rae's name in the book of special intentions for special prayers!We are all so happy that she is no longer in any pain and is whole once again in heaven.She must be so happy looking down and watching Pierre doing well in his new forever home.We are all going to see Pierre on his page to say hello to him.Donna sounds like she was a sweet soul someone that you don't see very often in this world!Mom will keep putting her name in the special intentions book to pray for her soul!I know just how much your sweet Mom will miss her.
My Mom had to get out of the house really early this morning as skin bro came and picked her up to look at the condo he's interested in moving into so she quickly got us all cleaned and fed and out the door she went,it was a nice place with 2 levels and spacious bedrooms and nice walk in closets and a big basement.They have a nice pool and a club house there too.Skin bro will be able to move in May 1st.
Your sweet Mom sure had another very long day with the drs appointments for GMa and GPa.I'll bet she was egghausted by the time she came back from getting the lab work done!
We too had a gorgeous day here with temperatures of 68 or so and the sun was just wonderful!Mom took us all outside one by one and gave us all a nail trim and she did my beak also,I went into a seizure and Mom had to stop and walk around the yard with me to try and get me out of it.After all my frothers and fisters were done having their nails done I got to have some coconut lemon cake to eat.
My Mom only wishes she could be working out at the gym again,she kind of misses it and she's hoping that skin sis gets her surgery soon so they can go back to working out,but Mom will be using her treadmill here for the time being.Your Mom is so amazing to be able to do all those machines along with the treadmill!That fur ball cousin will keep your sweet Mom walking for sure!Its too bad that you have to spend more time in your cages while Lexi is with you though.At least you'll be able to be on GMa and get around a little!My Mom feels the same way as this weather is so perfect now she's going to see if she can prune the hydrangea bush and the single rose bush in the flower garden and get her garden all cleaned up.We are supposed to have heavy downpours on Tuesday night so Mom wants to see how much she can get done outside while the sun is out and the weather is nice,and maybe we can all get outside to feel the sunshine on our feathers too!
I'm wishing you a greyt weekend and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and sending prayers for GPa,GMa and your wonderful Mom too!Nana sends you her love for always thinking of her,and skin sis sends you all her love also.Hopefully when she sees the surgeon on Wednesday Mom will find out just whats going on

  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.

  Hi, Kacey
How awesome to get the spring temps and sun there at last. Makes is much nicer having to walk the visiting furball. Since the furball moved here we are locked up most of the time too. We don't mind so long as we get out a lil bit. Wait, you're getting another polar blast? It's spring! Don't need another cold spell, but guess 40s isn't like having below freezing temps.

Haven't tried another pic yet. Maybe later today and mom'll pay attention to selecting a clear pic for us to wear our derby hats.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Kacey
my sweet little fister! Mom checked with our pet store and Doug the owner who knows Mom and Nana is going to order some for us and Mom will send you the package when it comes in! Because of the holidays coming up(Easter)it may be delayed a little but he will call Mom when it comes in!He's usually always very good at getting things for Mom and Nana that we need or want!
We had a cold start to the morning but by the afternoon the sun came out and it was really warm,people were outside with their coats off and just light jackets or sweaters!The car even got hot just by Mom parking it in the sunshine!
We are supposed to have a fairly nice weekend here and will be getting rain on Monday before the temperatures go down again,you are so right this winter just won't leave us alone to let Spring come in!
I'm wishing you a wonderful Saturday with bright sunshine and warm weather with no more rain!
Loving you always and forever,my sweet little fister and I'm getting to stomp on your vote button today!Love always your older frother,Peepers

  Hi Kacey
my sweet little fister!We woke up to a cold morning,the sun trying to come out and by afternoon it was quite warm and everyone was out in just sweaters or no coats of any kind!Mom and Dixie got to go to Nana's house,where he stayed with my cousin Trixie II as they went on their errand runs,dump etc!Mom continued her search for a birthday gift for her sister,who's birthday was the 9th of last month and finally gave up and got her a gift card for Home Goods,which can be used at TJ Maxx and Marshall's also.They went to True Value a hardware store and Mom had some deck paint made up for our deck.She had to come back later in the day as the kid that ran the paint mixing machine wasn't there,so she got that later,then they went to some grocery stores,the bank,dollar store and Post Office and vacuum store.Skin sis called Mom early this morning and told her the surgeons visit was moved to Wednesday next week and they're telling her that she will have to have pins put in her hips or upper legs.
Nana's pretty yellow daffodils are coming up now and they really look pretty!
Mom is hoping that it will be just as nice on Sunday as she wants to get our beak trims and nails done outside if possible!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses to my sweet little fister,from her older frother,Kallie

  HI KACEY
WELL MOM FINALLY HAS TIME TO SIT DONE AND TYPE FOR ME. WE ARE SO MAD AT HER. MOM WASHED AND REHUNG THE EXTRA LARGE DRAPES IN THE LIVING ROOM. THE 2 DRAPES ARE 9 FEET WIDE APIECE AND IT IS BIG JOB GETTING THEM DOWN WASHING THEM AND SLIDING THE HOOKS BACK INTO THEM WITH OUT THEM WRINKLING. PLUS WHEN MOM REMOVED SOME OF THE DRAPERY HOOKS SHE FOUND THEY WERE BENT OUT OF SHAPE SO SHE WAS GOING CRAZY SEARCHING THROUGH ALL THE CLOSETS TRYING TO FIND SOME EXTRAS THAT ARE THE CORRECT SIZE. ON TOP OF THAT OUR 2 LONG HAIRED BLACK CAT LIKE TO LAY BY THE WINDOW SO THEIRBODY BRUSHES UP AGAINST THE BOTTOM OF THE DRAPES AND THEY WERE FULL OF CAT HAIR(THE DRAPES OF WHITE) SO MOM HAD TO USE A LINT BRUSH ON THE DRAPES BEFORE PRE-SOAKING THEM, THEN WASHIG THEM AND DRYING THEM AND THEN USING THE LINT BRUSH AGAIN ON THEM. THE DRAPES COVER OUR 2 DOUBLE GLASS SLIDING DOORS SO WHIE THE DRAPES WERE BEING WASHED AND DRIED MOM WAS WASHING THE WINDOWS AND VACUUMING UP CAT HAIR.WE WERE QUIET AS A MOUSE WHILE WATCHING MOM DO THIS. IT WAS EXHAUSTING TO SEEAND I AM SURE GLAD SHE IS FINALLY DONE. SHES BEEN WORKING ON THEM SINCE YESTERDAY. NOW ONLY THE SMALLER DRAPES IN THE DINING ROOM NEED TO BE DONE. PLUS DAD IS HAVING A SEVERE VERTIGO ATTACK AND IS HAVING MOM WAIT ON HIM HAND AND FOOT.

THANK GOD ITS FRIDAY.

My Mom will always be here for your sweet wonderful Mom and will listen and she only wishes she could do something to help.We love you sooo sooo much more than you could ever know!Each and every one of you,Mom,GPa,GMa and SweetPepper and you!You are our family and there's nothing we wouldn't do for you all ever!We will always be here 24/7 for you all!
Mom and Nana went our for their errand runs and the dump today and they stopped in Church and said lots of prayers for GPa,GMa your wonderful Mom and for Donna Rae Allen!Tomorrow when Mom goes to our church she'll put everyone's names in the special intentions book at church for another week of prayers for healing and comfort and peace!We are sooo happy to hear that GPa feels better now that he got to talk with the Physicians Assistant,Taylor and she helped him to see that there is hope for him to feel better!That's just the thing,you have to get someone who really cares about what you are feeling and going through!We are all so happy for GPa,please tell him that we are all here for him,our prayers will never stop coming his way ever!We are all praying that all the changes that he is getting will help him feel good again!
Your poor sweet Mom,having so much on her shoulders and having to take both GPa and GMa to the hospital for lab work!We are so praying always that after all these appointments are done that your sweet Mom gets to have a nice dinner and some time to relax,she's really been working soo hard everyday!
How wonderful for your sweet Mom to be working at the gym for nearly 2 hours!That was quite some time to be on the treadmill,62 minutes and that's an amazing amount of calories burned also!443!My Mom is going to see if she can start the treadmill again on Sunday and then get into a routine with her DVD's,she really misses not going to the gym anymore!
We had such a wonderful spring day here,the sun was out bright and after a cold morning start the afternoon was just delightful.It must've been close to 60 here!
Our hearts go out to Donna Rae Allen and her family.How sad to see someone so young go through so much,our prayers will always be going out Donna Rae Allens way for peace and comfort,it surely must be hard on her also to have to give up Pierre.It almost sounds like what happened to Peeper's original Mom,she was in a hospital,but wouldn't die because she wanted Peeper's to go to a good loving home,the sister knew of us from my dad's Mom,at first we were just boarding Peepers,then she begged us to take him in as our own,Peepers was her sister's baby!As soon as we said yes,she was able to go in peace.She just wouldn't leave knowing her baby wasn't in a loving home.We agree,it doesn't matter if we never meet,we are soo close to one another,we are each others family no matter what!The love we share and the things we will do for each other no one will understand,our love stretches way beyond the miles that separate us!
We are sending you all our love along with warm birdie hu

  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.

  Hi, Kacey
Still spring here with another day of 70s temps and lots of sun. Hope you get the 70 even if only for the day. No rain forecast here.

Hopefully the lab work for gma and gpa is all routine and they are doing well.

Our mom will continue to try making us a new derby pic. She wasn't happy with the blurry one but thinks she selected a not so great pic of us to start with so will find one that's clearer even if she's used it before.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Kacey
my sweet little fister! Mom also has been trying to find those Baked Birdie O's for us!She is going to go to the pet store tomorrow and see if Falmouth Pet has them yet,usually they get the latest in Bird food in so Mom will look for them and if they have them she will pick them up for both me and you and send you a package!
We woke up to a bright sunny day with temps at 52 but the wind was so strong and really made it feel sooo cold!Mom even went out when dad came home from work on the deck and gave him a haircut and she had no cleanup as the wind just whipped all the hair away as soon as she used the clippers and cut dad's hair!I just hope the wild birdies got some hair to line their nests with!I think we will be getting close to the 60's on Saturday but its going to be raining out and then Sunday should be better!You are so right about that winter won't loosen its grip on us and let us feel the warmth and the happiness of being outside!
I'm wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love my sweet little fister,along with warm tiel hugs and
soft tiel kisses and we all send you a vote too!Loving you always and forever,from your older frother,Peepers!

  Hi Kacey
We had another sunny day here today and the temperatures were 52 and I got to spend more time up in my window swing just taking in all the warm sunshine through my window! I can't wait til we can go outside and sit on the deck and have showers so we can all dry off in the warm sunshine!I agree with you!I just hope it stays this way all week long!Mom went out to check her garden and she is now seeing our yellow primroses coming up and her little white bell flowers coming up and some of the purple hyacynths coming up too!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses to my precious little fister!Love from your older frother,Kallie

  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.
