Default Hello good to be here

Hello everyone long time no talk, I have not fallen off the face of the Earth, nor have I simply disappeared!
It seems the Forum is continuing to enlighten and help many who have the misfortune of a sick or ailing bird. Or a simple query needing a true and detailed answer. Well done to everyone as always.
Well I have had a few issues with my three budgies but thankfully they are all well and on the way to being their normal happy selves.
I had Budget at Dr Tania for the evil Megabac, as soon as the warmer weather comes in I can't seem to stop him from having an attack. He is now back to his lovely charming self and talking up a storm.
My sweet Blue boy has also been very sick, he had a vet visit and given antibiotics for a general infection but he just didn't seem to be recovering so a week later I had to take him back and he was hospitalised for a week of intense antibiotics and he also had megaback from being run down.
Glad to say they are all carrying on and behaving as usual now. PHEW
I am looking forward to the end of the school year as I get older it is harder to find the energy needed .
So looking forward to reading all about everyone's adventures see you around.

Cathy, glad the budgies are doing much better, must have been very frightening for a while there.

See you soon!

Hi, Cathy!

It's great to have you back.

I'm glad to hear Budget and Blue are on the mend now after their bouts of illness. I wish them both a full and speedy recovery!

I hope you have an enjoyable summer and manage to find time in your busy schedule for some much needed relaxation.

Welcome back, Cathy!

I'm sorry you recently went through a rough patch with Budget and Blue.
It's good to know that they have both recovered and are now back to their happy selves.

Cathy, I'm so glad that your little ones are feeling better now! It's always so stressful when the birdies aren't doing well.

I hope you find some time to relax, it's great to see you around the forums again

Smile Hello

I was just wondering how you and the flock were doing. We just had our coldest night down in the twenties. For me this means I become a grumpy bear ,that hates being cold.

I checked the flock and was confronted with a lot of fluff. So out comes the heat only lamps for those extra chill times. We use reflector and white ceramic bulb. with only 17 birds and only 2 of them handicapped, Apollo and Teddy, we can snuggle a few more into the indoor flight cages and only use one flight closest to the heater in the aviary.It is time to cuddle for the winter!!!

DeDe of Tweedle -DeDe our very first Budgies now approaching 10 to 11 years as they had no bands when we brought them home and they have graced us with their presence that long, was the first down for a nibble of oat groats and a drink of cold water. The flight was the first to send up the check in call, rapidly followed by DeDe and then Teddy to say all OK, but hay Dad how about some warm soft food for breakfast!!!! Sooner than later, please. Birdy music Christmas carols and full spectrum cage lights are on and I am dreaming of those very expensive LED lights at Windy city Parrot!!! As our current old lights have a tendency to turn themselves off and Dad says I did it again and forgot to turn the lights on!!!!

As I was snuggled deep in the bed with the heat discs for extra warmth. We were listening to my current favorite CD series borrowed from the library. It is about Alaska and Kate Shugate, a native with a homestead way out in the hinterlands and away from the" Rez". Dana Stabenow (SP?) writes about history and culture very acurrately. Kate is an investigator/P I, who helps the local law solve local issues on and off the "REZ". She lives alone with Mutt, a part wolf, part husky 140lb dynamo that all of the locals respect and supply with treats When they visit places in town. Dogs are allowed in when they behave as this is wilderness and a persons well behaved dog is a first class citizen!!! A young bull moose made the mistake of having breakfast near Kates cabin and so became the meat stock to cut and freeze for a number of families, including Kates grandmother who is one of the elders of the local native association. She unexpectedly arrives to help Kate prep the 400 hundred pound moose, which they complete in 3 days and pack in the cash up on legs to avoid the local bears raiding the larder.

The story continues and draws one deep into the culture of the area as one snuggles deeper in the bed covers with my favorite plush from Alaska, Mutt, already dressed in her harness and ready to pull the sled when needed. Visions of the Ididarod endurance race across the north country, enter my mind. There are at least 9 adventures to keep us company for a while.

So the point of all of this is to encourage everyone to purchase or borrow one or several Kate Sugate adventures to learn more about Alaska and the pioneer citizens of this desolate and beautiful area where only the very toughest survive with the blessings of Mother Nature the Creator and guardian of the people, trees and animals, many of whom live a subsistence life in the snow country.

In turn I feel grateful for our wide spread TB community. Half of us are digging in to winter!!!! While in the southern hemisphere folks are preparing for the searing heat in places like Australia and New Zealand. Many Blessings to you all!! Jo Ann and flock

Welcome back Cathy, I'm sorry your boys have been unwell. It's so scary when they get sick. Wishing them all the best on the road to recovery.

Default Hello

OOPs. I thought I was starting a new thread, Cathy. You are so good with Budget and Blue. I know you and the lady vet have them in hand, and yes,
It is scary when they fall ill but such joy each time you win the battle once again.

I have been in PT for several months. There is hopeful progress in some areas,but other areas will need a miracle and pain meds to endure the contortions the physical therapist creates !!! Our Apollo seems to be blind, but still loves to snuggle and munch millet spray. I miss TB a lot, but PT takes most of my energy and focus when pain shows up. I do ask everyone's pardon as my spelling and mental skills suffer. I can still picture in my mind many of the little fuzzies but often get names out of order. Thank you all for being the great resource for budgies and people in need! Blessings, Jo Ann
