  1. Last week was a really crazy week. Mama Tweet getting sick right before I go on vacation wasn't in the plan. Especially sick with this particular ailment. But luckily it was just staying at our cottage for a week, so guess who came with me?? Mama Tweet. I know it isn't ideal for a bird to travel when they are sick but it was either take her or have my dad take care of her (he takes care of my birds when I leave) and he wouldn't be giving her medicines. Her cage is a cool cage with a divider in it and another parakeet whom is retired from breeding Mr Tweekers is in the other side of the cage. S
  2. Mama Tweet and I are going back to the vet today. Just to get more fluid tapped out. She gained it back slowly this time and def not as much so that is a good sign. The vet said that it may happen again, doesn't seem uncommon. While I am there I going to be picking up that other hormone as well, so maybe that will aid in her recovery. So far so good. Mama Tweet and I would like to thank you all for your support!!
  3. Hi Everyone, I would like to thank everyone for their good thoughts and/or prayers. I talked to the doctor today and it looks like they can rule out organ problems, tumors, cardiac issues and she is cancer free. She has something called Egg Yolk Peritonitis. It could be potentially fatal, but good news is, Mama Tweet is in very good health and I caught it pretty early. Unfortunately I may have to have her under sedation again to get the fluid tapped out if her abdomen if it gets distended once more, which it looks a bit swollen tonight. She is on Furosemide (Lasix) which is a diuretic
  4. Thank you for your comments. The results aren't in yet. Just gave Mama Tweet her meds a little bit ago. Unfort, she is already getting tired of them...LOL. She let's me know that she HATES them. I am going to give the vet a call tomorrow to give them a progress report. Her potty is really runny because of the one med. That is the one that is suppose to help her release the fluid on her own. Thanks again for you support.
  5. Hello Everyone, I am going to ask of you to pray for my parakeet Mama Tweet. She is my first parakeet I ever owned and I Love her so much. She gave me most of my flock. She is a true mama and is the boss of all of the birdies. I got home Sunday night from Wisconsin (my dad takes care of my birds every weekend for me until we close up the cottage for the winter). She seemed a little off so I gave her some antibiotics that I have stored for bird emergencies. Gave her another dose yesterday. This morning when I went to give her another dose I noticed her abdomen was really distended and red I
  6. I just looked up Cinnamon Greywing budgie mutations on google. I got no hits. I have a few friends who are really into budgies and the mutations. They all are confused about this chick. One swears it is Cinnamon and the othes say full body grey wing. But they all agree on one thing. She looks totally Neon. Which is funny cuz she looks like she almost glows in the dark. She is a very pretty birdie. I love her!! I was saying I hope I don't have a radio active toxic bird...LOL
  7. Hello, Go to the thread in this topic "Surprise Chick Update: Plus Bonus Photos". I have pictures of her parents.
  8. Just snapped a few pics of my new chick today. Also pictured it comparing it to her sibling. Was told by a friend that she is either a Cinnimon or Dilute full body Greywing. Still not sure but I think she is cute!!
  9. Thank You!!! And yes I have heard the problem may be the males....I wasn't sure if that was true!! thanks!!! Someone told me that the chick is a full body greywing or a cinnimon. Not sure?
  10. Hello Everyone, You might remember me from the "hmmm still learning what's up with this chick???" Thread. Huey and Trixie (as I now named the mother ) are doing fine and I wanted to share a few updated photos of the chick. The chick is now in a cage with a chick that broke her leg and 2 new blue babies. They are all very well behaved chicks and are not loud at all, they also do not try to bite me ever. So I figured they would all be great cage mates. Which they are, they get along so well. I also wanted to share that Huey's sister hatched out a surprise chick as well. I have taken some pic
  11. I have another surprise bird hatched by Huey's younger sister. I am pretty excited about this!!!!
  12. Thank You!! Well you know, She is starting to look like a HE to me. I just took the chick out today, which is looking very pretty. I looked at the cere and it looks really male to me. Hmmmm....another mystery. LOL
  13. Chippy is very cute. I love his colors.
  14. Oh I love that video. That is so cute how they can talk like that.
