birdy survey!

I thought this would be a fun way to get to know eachothers birdies and brag a little! I'll start, then you can copy and paste!

Name: Cleo
Pics:


Age: 10 weeks, i'm a baby... but don't underestimate me!

Sex: Only I know... that's for the humans to find out later!

Nicknames: Lo Lo, Cleoli Ravioli

Favorite food: Corn!! Just can't get enough. Fun to play with!! And it's yellow!

Favorite place to be: on the shoulder. Too bad I get aggressive up there and am not allowed!

Favorite toy: The bars of the cage are fun to climb and anything yellow!

Pet peeves: When people stop giving me scritches!! Don't they know that I love them!?

Words said/ whistles: None, but I sure do flock call and beg for attention!

Favorite things to do: Get scritches, eat corn, sit in my food bowl, eat, eat eat, be a little stinker!

What I love most about my owner: The little one loves me to death and the big one gives me food!!!

Motto: My way or the highway, buddy!




Name: Piper

Pics:




Age: 9 weeks... i'm a baby and I know it.

Sex: The humans don't know for sure, but they think i'm a girl because of my quiet, laid back personality.

Nicknames: Pipes, Piperoni, Little one.

Favorite food: Nothing in particular, i'm still trying everything out.. taking it slow. But I do love that millet stuff!

Favorite place to be: cuddled against Mommy's shirt.

Favorite toy: Anything with straw is good with me.

Pet peeves: When the little, white, barking monster comes in and scares me!!

Words said/ whistles: None. I only quietly flock call for Cleo.

Favorite things to do: Cuddle, cuddle, and cuddle. I also like following Cleo, aka Head Honcho around. I sit in the food bowl just like her!

What I love most about my owner: She cuddles me and thinks i'm the perfect little birdy!!

Motto: i'll take some lovins please!!

You do realise I own over 80 birds right it would take me FOREVER to do my birds! It's a great idea though.

Right this is going to be a real pain for me to do this but oh well haha!

I'm going to do them for most of my birds that you all know except for those at my uncles (for example, the enormous aviary with the golden pheasants bourkes and red rumps etc in!) and I hope you don't mind if I include the ones who passed whom I loved very much and the ones who went to different places...

PopcornIRN: if your ring neck is that old I'm assuming that you can tell by now what sex they are. If they have a heavily noticeable ring around their neck then it's a guy, if the ring isn't noticeable much then it is definitely a girl. But you should be able to tell by now surely?
