Looking through my bookmarks and realized I was a member of this forum. Thought I'd drop in as I know many of the great forums are failing because of the social forums like Facebook. I do believe the only posts I made here are on the intro forum long ago.

  Since I was here last I lost my Nanday of 28 years, my patagonian , and my quaker I raised from day 2 out of the egg. Also had to rehome my gorgeous tiel. She was a chronic egg layer . My husband had Altzheimers and required my constant care.I didn't have the time or strength to take care of her. When my husband passed away I was left with his pionus who hated me from day1. Breeding season is a horror with that bird. In constant attack mode  and can bite hard enough to send you to the ER.
 
But I digress. I received a Quaker as a Xmas gift last August.It took that long to find what I wanted. I had my heart set on a blue but I preferred a  pallid green I met. He is sooooo cute and a regular talking machine.  His fav words are Peek a boo , Pretty boy, Peek a boy and of course  NO BITE. He is in my puter room so he sees a lot of me. He yaks away and picks up words when I say them only once. I was showing him off to a friend and he was asleep when we walked in . I said "wakeup" and he has repeated it ever since.  Yesterday I said "Really?" to him as he yakked away and I noticed he repeated it as I sit here at the PC.  None of my other Quakers talked like he does. In fact I never believed Quakers talked like that when I heard the stories. His name is Qwerty. He doesn't say that. I guess I picked the wrong name

I had better get out of here as I spend too much time on the puter but I will be dropping in more often now that I found you again.

"hello2" Yogi, it's lovely to meet you  smile3 I don't think we have met before. My name is Wendy and I took over the forum with De'Andrea who you probably know as "Nakia" quite a while ago now  thumb

You are right in what you are saying about FB taking over forums. It is such a shame really as personally, I think forums are much better.

Thank you for coming back to see us and we would love to see some pics of your flock  handshappy

Hi Wendy (I just love that name)
 Yes I am thoroughly disgusted with the way the parrot forums have dropped off. There is no other place you can get the kind of info you can on a forum.  I know of only one large forum that is busy daily.

 "hello2" Hi Yogi, you must have join long before I did as I can't  recall visiting with you here. I join this forum back in Jan of 2012. It was not very busy with only about 20 regulars coming to post a bit. By the end of 2012 almost no one came on and Darren & Marlene the founders & admin deciced to give the forum back to the domain owner. They had other things they were involved in that took their time away from here. I'm  still close intetnet friends with them, but miss them dearly here. sadboy3

Anyway, I am so glad to see you pop in and say Hi!!! I'm  a bit late coming over to chat with you, sorry bout that. Oh Qwerty sounds adorable & I love his name. As we all know too well, our birds are famous for learning what they want to say & saying what they shouldn't  at the most inopportune times.  dmblaf I love the blue color Quakers & thought I wanted one once or twice but decided not to add any more birds to my flock.

Yep I know what you mean about the pionus & that beak!!! Umm I have one that is coming up 3 yrs old. Not sure if it is a male or female, but for something to call it I chose it to be a she since she is so temperamental like PMS!! oh She is a white capped pionus whose official name is Sierra Sunrise.  When she first began to talk she sounded like the old Star Wars movie Ewoks. So I called her that so much she thinks that is her name or my name.  think Still not sure which on that one. She will not allow me to hold her & can deliver a bite that rivals an Amazon's.  :eek2:

Please do show us some photos of your feathered kids. I think the pallad greens are beautiful!! loveuk

For someone who is always lamenting how the forums are falling apart , I can't believe I haven't been back to answer this thread.  I should get 20 lashes with a feather.

 I joined back in 2008 but I somehow usually overlook this forum.

In case you 're wondering where the name Qwerty came from look at your keyboard. He finally learned to say it but it comes out Qwatty.

And yes the pionus is still acting up. Doesn't like anything or me.  He will fling his favorite treat if he doesn't like my Tee shirt.  Proved that by changing my shirt.  I just got tired of catering to him after all these years. He's over 20. I keep trying but if he doesn't like me after 16 years or so I don't think he ever will.

I'll try to pop in more often.

Yep, we all seem to be slowing up on coming over to the real forums like this one. I know I have not been on in a really long while. You did join a few yrs before me.

I joined here in Jan of 2012, by the end of that yr Darren & Mar the founders of this forum had decided to give it back to the domain owner who liked the place & kept it as a forum with no real moderating. In 2014 Wendy, Debra & I asked Darren if we could try to make a go of it and took over the admin part of running it. We tried to keep posts up, but life does get in the way. We were not able to get a lot of activity back on here and really don't know what it would take for forums like this to be hopping with enthusiasm anymore.  :ashmd: sadboy3

If anyone of you have any suggestions on how we can get the forum hopping with enthusiasm again (as De'Andrea has said) we are all ears  thumb

Sadly, it seems that FB has taken over forums in a big way  :cry1:

I'm afraid im one of those Facebook addicts, I must admit it is addictive for some unknown reason. Im a member of a few groups there, one of which is very nice, a parrot group, no *bleep*ing or fighting. The others are for the village where I grew up and the school I went to. I mostly stick to those. Other bird groups seem to think some folk are gods and have to run everything by them, so it puts me off of joining in  :cry

I ought to have a break and log in to my forums more  kiss2
