  1. No more pain...

    Pistachio, our Ringneck parakeet has moved on to a better place. Here's a current and original post explaining how we rescued Pistachio and Buddy. (Maggie here)...Pistachio and Buddy have always shared a cage together and often at night when checking on them, tiny Pistachio would sleep with larger Buddy under his wings. I fed both this morning and they were great but when I went to check on them a little later, I found Pistachio on the bottom of the cage (passed on) with Buddy protecting him. At that time he would not let me near Pistachio. When I went back in a few minutes later, Buddy was on his perch and I moved Pistachio. As I left the room, Salsa flew in and landed on their old cage and sat with Buddy for a few minutes (she never goes in their room). Buddy squawked and made a ruckus for about an hour but he seems to have calmed down a little...We have had them since 2010 and they were together before that. We don't know how old they were when we got them. Really concerned about Buddy because he was more psychologically damaged from his previous life and still has much baggage. Pistachio let us touch him and pick him up when he landed on the floor but Buddy has always been like a lion in a cage...Fly free now over the rainbow... Posted November 15 (edited) Posted July 6, 2012 (edited) [Pistachio] Did you find it? Yeah Buddy, it was easier then we thought, I watched Spock do it. How ya feeling Buddy? Okay, had a anxiety attack last night but okay now. At least they don't happen as often. These Big-ones won't hurt us like the other did. I know, I just can't forget. They blew that foul stuff at my beaker and I'd go crazy and fling myself and it hurt...I still hurt! I know Bud but things have been good for a while. You haven't bitten the Big-ones for a long time. Yeah [lol] you yell out "NO Buddy don't Bite". Hows your back Pistachio? It don't hurt hasn't for a long time. I heard Mama Big-One tell Papa they played like I was a daisy, pulling the feathers out one at a time saying "I love him, I love him not". After the first few times, it hurt so bad I just can't remember any more. Then I just started pulling them out of my chest myself because I hurt so bad. I wish you weren't afraid to fly Buddy. When I go into the other room, there's these big birds and they are majestic and they let me fly with them until I get tired and have to land. Mama Big-one gently picks me up off the floor and brings me back to you. You know she always brings us good food and that wet stuff she sprays on me makes my skin feel so good. Do you want me to preen you, okay Buddy? That feels really good! Buddy, why do you call "Kitty, kitty, kitty". There's no kitty here.... Hehehe...it sounds good...Anyways, that little black thing without wings comes running into the room. Once I pooped on his head and he likes the little treats I throw down for him. There's good feathered friends here......

Hi...'Stash here...we were with those druggie bas---- for so long, that the white coat big one said that Buddy can only get so well.and he is just about there. All we can do is not spook him and keep him comfortable. He has flashbacks and I cuddle with him and tell him "Be nice". The other day I took him a bite of my apple. I hear the big ones say they can see how much I love him. You ought to hear Buddy talk in the morning. He says "Good morning!", "I love you", "Whatcha want"...for a Mitred Conure he is pretty good. He used to say "Wanna get some crack?" and cuss with the best of them but he doesn't say that anymore. Me, I'm a pretty good talker...in my high squeaky voice I say "good morning, Buddy, be good! Be nice. Hello."...thank you. It's nice knowing we have friends out there. Pistachio
  5. Spock's New Pastime!

    Greetings, I thought I might try something to help stimulate interest on the Grey Forums. I'm going to post "Past Post's". At the least we all might learn something from the past. My 1st is from Spock [my wife Maggie] Spock considers himself "King of the Greys"... Ladies and gentlemen, HERE'S Spock.... SCROLL to TOP to read 1st post!
  6. No WAY!!!

    Maggie/Spock here...The other day, I made Jay his favorite tofu scramble with spinach, mushrooms, finely chopped celery and carrots, and finely chopped tofu and since I was running behind, I fed our fids some of this too for their hot meal with brown rice on the side. Joe was so excited and dived into his plate and took a big bite, lifted his head with his mouth wide open, let the food fall out of his mouth, shook his head to get rid of the rest of the food, reared his head back and looked at me as if saying "What the HELL was that????".... Then he flew away and turned his back to me...ROLOL...I tried to make peace by offering him some scrambled egg but he just gave me the evil eye...I wasn't going to fool HIM twice!
  7. seed mix or course mix ?

    Greetings, (Maggie (Spock) writing for Jay)... If I may, We feed mainly "Volkman's Large Hookbill [Saffron], There are many good foods out there. Over the years we have fed our fids many different forms of food, please check some of our past posts. An excellent pellet is "Harrison's". We still feed our fids a warm dinner which is usually some type of veggies, warm sweet potatoes, rice, pasta, chicken, chicken bones with meat, scrambled egg, etc. (you get the idea ) They also eat off of Jay's plate (not mine LOL what I eat might not agree with them LOL) like Cheerios, Bran flakes, quinoa with kale (cooked), kale slushes, brown rice with swiss chard and tofu, fish, salmon, cod, halibut (bites), and their favorite, Tuna sandwich on 12 grain bread (LOL)...We make sure they have non-colored pellets, only vet-ordered supplements, no added salt, salt-free, no added sugar, no monkey nuts, (ONLY human grade roasted unsalted nuts). Concerning peanuts, we do not serve them too often because of high cholesterol and fat content. Sunflower seeds....very, very, very few...they are fattening and addictive...they are excellent for a training treat (3-4 a day). Pistachios (roasted no-salt) are an occasional great treat. Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) occasionally (once a week) are good because they bind good vitamins from the parrot. Walnuts are excellent and three almonds a day will turn your parrot into an Einstein Touchy subject: In the early years, I gave Red Palm oil very rarely and in the last ten years, I have not given any at all. Most of the red palm oil is not from Africa, it is from Malaysia. The soil in Africa and Malaysia is totally different from each other and because of this, the quality and nutriment content is very different. There are acres of red palm farms in Malaysia. It is also full of trans-fat and cholesterol which can cause fatty-acid disease. If you wish to use an oil, virgin olive oil or a top grade canola oil are good. This is what we cook with. We only feed them whole-grain breads when they get a treat or a bite. A nice treat is a small bite of whole-grain bread with a little olive or canola oil on it. As a trade-off for red palm oil, feed them a vitamin E green veggie. You have to research and decide what you want to feed your fid...I or anyone else should never stand on a soapbox and tell you this is what to feed them. So, use a Chinese menu format.......one from column A, one from column B....or all from column A or B...Be creative...Greys cannot live on one food alone
  8. Greetings! Spock here typing for Jayd.... As some of you may recall, our oldest son passed away a few years ago and we keep his urn on the end of the long L-shaped bar that separates the living room from the kitchen next to the wall. It is a plain, unassuming grey marble urn a little over a foot in diameter. Quite a few times, unexpectedly, and never knowing when, Joe, our Grey, will fly over toward the urn and land about three feet away. He bends forward with his head turned to the right (Like he is bowing) and walks sideways while talking to Jayson "Hello, How are you?, Give me a kiss..." When he reaches Jayson, he touches his beak to the urn while making kissing sounds and asks him "How are you?" The last time that he did this, he did something unusual...he mumbled something to him, paused, cocked his head, and answered "Okay". Then he said, "Gotta go now...okay. See you later. I love you". When he backed up approximately three feet away, he gave him another kiss, said "Bye-bye" and flew away...like nothing happened... Only you can interpret this as you see fit...we take some comfort every time this happens....Grey cognition is amazing! In some of your research and study into Greys, a number of references can be found regarding telepathy... P.S. this has been re-written three times due to tears...LOL
  9. advice on uv light.

    Greetings all, Jayd here. UV, if I may, Our CAG's don't receive much Vitamin D from food or supplements. CAG's receive Vit D from sunlight, as little as 2hr's a day works, with artificial lighting you need 8hr's. When the Grey preens, they wipe their beak across their " uropygial gland ". I have found out over the years, if your house is lighted with "Daylight bulbs" they seem to work. If you use the "Zoo Med" make sure it's not for reptiles... Warm, if the temperature around your Greys cage is 72 or above don't worry, their wild temp get's lower than that.
  10. Happy, Happy Birthday!!!!!!!! Jayd and Maggie [spock]
