  I am so sorry to hear about Syd's passing! I believe that your vet was right and that you did everything possible for him. Some things are just left to fate. Our flock lost a mate on December 24th. Campbell, our beloved lovebird passed early that morning. Our flock understands what you are going thru and are here if you need someone to talk to!

  Hi syd
Have your mom type in this in browser bar and it will bring her to the group. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LoryParrotFan/
I you want to add the conure to the signature you have to make a whole new page for the conure, just like when your mom set one up for you. Go into your account and look for add a new bird. Hope she can find it and she joins you up for the lory group.

  Hey handsome! I'm sorry that you are going to have to have fluid drained again. Does it hurt? You must be one brave bird! As for the Bach's, it comes in a spray and a dropper (you can drop some into your water.) It really doesn't treat your skin, but it helps you to relax. Sometimes when I get stressed out, Mom will give some to me and it helps me to calm down. My dogs use it, too. How do you like sharing a room with another birdie? We love sharing our room here. It makes Mom feel better knowing that we can chat back and forth with each other if she has to leave the house.

  Hi Syd
Nice to meet you too! I pull feathers too! Around my neck and under my wings. I have been treated for giardia twice so mom uses a drop of oil of oregano in my water to kill any parasites. Sorry you have water in your stomach that must be a pain to have removed. My mom feeds me lory life powder and nectar and I am doing real good. She runs a lory yahoo group called lory parrot fan. She is a big fan of lories, lol. She has been sad cuz she lost her red lory in Oct all of a sudden she was gone. Now no one says good night to her when all the birdies are put to bed. But Gideon our goldies is trying real hard. He says it during the day! Here is a vote for you and hope to talk again soon. Meko

  Yeah Syd! It's so great to hear from you! It's been a long time since we last chatted. I like the new pics of your buddy at the bottom of your page, too. Do the two of you still like to chat back and forth? I'm sorry you are having some troubles right now. I haven't used the Pluck No More myself, but you might want to check with FPA member Orion. Orion's Mom has been working on using several different things with her, too. If I remember right, Orion has tried Pluck No More before. Have you ever tried any of the Bach's? Mom uses it with us, especially when we travel, and it helps to calm us down. I hope that you will be back on here more because I look forward to our chats!

  Hi there everybirdie! Mom wants us to apologize to everybirdie for sending out a general blog. We have had bad weather with lots of storms and tornado warnings and therefore haven't had much time to be on here in the past 3 days! We hate the tornado warnings because that means Mom has to put us back into our cages (just in case she has to move us fast!) WE do have some great news, though. Our Dad will be coming home sooner than expected! He should be back home the 16th or 17th! We are all sooooo very excited! It makes me so excited that I think I will go poop on the dogs or drop something on their heads :) Hehe. Leaving votes for everyone and Mom promises to blog everybirdie individually back tomorrow because the weather is supposed to be good!

Snuggles and her gang

PS Hi Syd! Mom says I can't be on the computer for too long today because of the thunders outside. I promise I will be able to write more tomorrow. I just wanted to know how everything was going with your new friend? Is her name still Daisy? I see the two pictures below and she sure looks like a cutie! I am hoping that the two of you will be able to be great friends! Has there been that sceam fest yet? hehe.

  Hey there Syd! I'm sorry that your human sister didn't like you for a long time. Guess the good thing is that she likes you now and that she is nice enough to clean your cage for you! Our human brother, Topher, is only 2 and most days he likes us. Sometimes I accidentially scare him though. I don't mean to, but I just get too excited when I see him and I scream to get his attention (especially if he is paying attention to the other birds.) I like to dance and laugh with him. He really likes Gonzo, too. She's the handicapped 'tiel I was telling you about. Sometimes people look at our Mom strange because Topher likes to take GOnzo outside for wagon rides. Personally, I don't care what the other people think because poor Gonzo can't fly and TOpher is just trying to help her out. He even takes her for rides on his toy train. It is so cute. Well buddy, we would love to stay on here and chat some more, but another tornado warning just popped up and Mom says back into the cage for us!

PS you will have to tell me if you got your new buddy today! I'm so excited for you!

  Hi there Syd! It would be an honor for me to have your picture up and have you as a member of FPA! How are you doing today? Getting 12 new feathers is awesome! So far I have let all of mine come back in ( I have never completely plucked my chest,) but Mom wonders how long I will leave them there since Dad is gone for a month or so. I'm sorry that you can't take showers. I don't like spray bottles so I have to take a shower with Mom or sometimes she fills the bathtub up for me and Munchie to play around in. Have you ever tried playing in the bathtub? I'm going to keep my toes and wings crossed that your collar will be able to come off soon and that you will be able to be great friends with your new Conure buddy when he/she arrives. My best friend used to be a Macaw named Sonoma. She passed on almost three years ago. We were the best of friends and I was so depressed after she was gone. Mom worked very hard to keep me happy. Then one day Mom came home and I heard some chirping coming from Mom's bedroom. I knew there was another bird in there, but Mom wouldn't let me or any other of us birds in there for over 30 days. Then one day, Mom comes into our room with Munchie, the Conure! I was so happy and now we are the bestest of friends! I'm hoping that it won't take too long for you and your friend to get aquainted and I hope that you guys will be the best of friends, too! I'm sorry that you have to stay at the bottom of your cage for now, but just remember that your Mom is trying to keep you safe! We live with a handicapped 'tiel named Gonzo. She has a wing that was broken by somebody before Mom took her in. The doctors all said that it could never be fixed and that since Gonzo wasn't in any pain that she could just let it heal on her own. It's been almost 5 years later and she is as happy as ever. Mom put low level platforms and perches and the bottom of the flight cage just for her since she can't fly with only one good wing. But boy! Gonzo can really go to town when she is hanging upside down and flapping her good wing! Well, Mom said that I have rambled on enough for one night! I forgot to ask you if you have any exciting plans for this weekend?

  Hello there Syd! Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you. I was on a trip to Illinois last week with my humans to visit the grandparents. We got back home last Thursday and then my Dad had to leave for more training. He should only be gone for a month or two this time, so that is good news! I would first like to thank you for stopping by my FPA page! Mom and I wanted to set up that page so that birds like us have a safe place to chat without being judged by anyone! I would also love for you to become a member of the FPA page and I would love to put your pic up on there, too (but only if you like!) At the bottom of the page you can see some fellow FPA members who have also come out of the closet! I hope that your Mom is doing good and please let her know that we will be thinking about her! It's a funny thing that you mentioned the maturity issue! Since there is no medical reason for my plucking, the docs have also said that mine might be related to the entire puberty thing (what ever that means!) I started when I was four and that is when my hormones started kicking in :) My Dad is also in the military, which means he leaves for training and deployments a lot. Although Mom is my main human, I still miss him and that could be part of my issues, too. Has your new friend arrived yet? I hope that when your friend comes that the two of you can be great friends! My best friend is Munchie, the Conure, who is in most of my pictures with me. Forgive me if I have already asked you this, but is the collar comfortable for you to wear? I am sorry that your chest feathers may never grow back in, but it is so awesome that your family loves you regardless! We think you are beautiful, too! Mom and I just wish that more people could look past the feathers to see what wonderful birds we are! I hope that you will become a member of FPA and that you will come back to chat with me again soon! Leaving a vote for you!

  HelloFrom Bongo
Today was cage cleaning day. Mama makes us so mad on these dayd. Moving everything around. GRRRRR!!!!!....I want to tell you a story about an umbrella cockatoo,(to anyone who's interested) Who needs a good home. Her name is Alley. She plucks her feathers a little. Sometimes they get to finally stop, then her previous owners come in the store and she starts all over again. She is a womans bird. She likes women best. She likes to snuggle against your breast and be petted. She is so gentle and loving, She is also a good talker. her favorite things to say is Alley Alley Alley.... and pretty bird, Alley is a pretty bird. I bongo would like her to go to a good home with someone who isn't just interested in a perfect bird, although when she finally stops plucking she will bew perfect. Keep her in your prayers and hopefully one day she will find a good home......Rosey attacked our skin sister yesterday and bit her on the neck. Mama was trying to get her off Sara and stuck her finger in Roseys beak to break the bite from Sara and got bit herself. Mama yelled Owww!!! and rosey yelled OWWWWW!!! and let go of Sara and Mama put her back in her cage. Mama can't understand why Rosey hates Sara because she just flew in her face and attacked. We think she is just a jealous bird who don't want Mam to pay attention to anyone else. Well here is a vote for you. have a great day.

Maybe you will come in to some money and then You can buy all three. You sound like Mama she wants them all to. It is hard for her to realize she can't save them all. But she sure wants too. About that manager she should be reported to the owners. Just because she is manager don't mean she can do what she wants to. The owners, if they are truly repretiable will address this issue. Well here is a vote for you. Have a great day.
