Success Stories

These are some of our recently adopted birds and what their new families have to say about them. Have a success story of your own or a cute picture you'd like to share? Let us know about it!

Weedy and Jimmer have done great these first few weeks! Jimmer is still afraid of hands, but occasionally will step up when he is really wanting some attention. Weedy is a COMPLETE opposite of Jimmer. Even though Weedy is hesitant to step up still (With some work he'll be stepping up in NO time) he loves taking rides on your shoulder. He enjoys chattering to you when he is on your shoulder. Weedy says so many words I can't count them! These are just some of his favorite words: Hi, Hi Guys, Ello, I got it, I got to go, gimme kiss, awwww, etc. He also is a singer. I taught him to sing like Blues Clues, he goes"Bar ba barrrr ba ba barrr!" I also taught him to go Ah ah AHHHHHH. He makes it sound pretty. He recently learned that when I sing a certain tune, he goes "I Love the Green Bay Packers". Then he makes up little tunes of his own.

Jimmer enjoys playing on top of his cage and making little screeching noises. He's sooo cute! They both love their baths, but Jimmer especially loves the water. I taught Weedy how to shake his head on comand, and he will spin around in circles on command too! He seems to know the difference between 1 2 and 3! He is very smart! He actually mastered these tricks the first week we had them! When Weedy climbs on your shoulder, he will rub his beak on your cheek, lips, or forehead and make a BIG kissing noise. Jimmer is not quite as social as Weedy, but hopefully soon they'll be totally ok with all of us. Our little Parakeet, Rontu, is very interested in Weedy and Jimmer, and he sings along with them. Our dog basically ignores the birds and the birds ignore our dog B.J. too. So I guess that's a good thing :) Thank you soooooo much for the opportunity, and the birds are in their caring forever home! They send their thanks! Here are some pictures of them!

Maggie

Maggie

We just wanted to send a quick update on Maggie.

We took her home last Saturday, and she has adjusted fabulously. She has settled into her cage, with lots of toys...

We are amazed by how much, and well, she flies. She loves to come hang out in the kitchen when we're making dinner--though she's already learned she has to stay on her cage while we are eating. (she usually gets some veggies as a thank you for letting us have our meal in peace. She's only noisy when she can hear us, but can't see us--she yells a bit when we first go to bed, but quiets right down after 15minutes or so.

She has a perch in the office, and likes to help me decide which papers should be filed and which should be shredded. Unsurprisingly, she usually votes for shredded!!

We're very much enjoying getting to know her--thanks for everything you do which made it possible for us to have such a sweet and fiesty girl!

Mickey is quite the bird. He is very loud at times and such a cuddler at others, he eats his food then goes over and helps himself to Bo Bo's food.(as evidenced by the picture)









They are buddies at times but when Mickey gets too noisy Bo Bo scolds him with a loud squawk, quite comical because Mickey usually keeps quiet after that.








He has bitten me a couple of times but not serious and my fault for not paying closer attention to his body language. If he is upset with us he will toe tap in his water bowl until it is almost empty.

Hi, some pictures of Hannah. She is doing better and better every day. She is learning to play with things more but is still a little reserved with new things.

She says a lot of things and every day we learn something new. The other day she piped in on a conversation and said "who cares?"

When customers come in she entertains them by saying "peekaboo" or counting for them. Here are a couple pictures of her playing on the counter at work.
