Thanks to her Aunt Kelly and Uncle Kenny and of course Little Miss Cosette. The car was really supposed to be a birthday gift for Jerry our African Grey who just turned 16 but Marshie has taken it over for now. (LOL)

Marshmellow the Umbrella Cockatoo

Happy Birthday Marshie!!!

I can’t believe today our little baby girl Marshmellow is 20 years old.  She doesn’t look a day older than 3 (LOL).

It seems like just yesterday our 2 month old baby girl Marshmellow came to live with us.

We will be having a party for Marshie over the weekend…..complete with cake (okay it is cream of wheat) and lots of toys.  Of course, Jerry our Grey will be singing Happy “Bird Day” (LOL)

Mommy and Daddy want to wish you a very Happy Hatch Day Marshmellow!!!

First Aid for Your Bird

First Aid and your Bird

First Aid and your Pet Parrot

I remember the first time I tried to file my Umbrella Cockatoo Marshmellow’s nails and I filed one of her nails too short and it started to bleed.  Being a new bird owner I did not know what to do.  My first instinct was to call the bird store where I purchased Marshmellow.  They told me to place Marmellow’s toe nail into a bar of soap to stop the bleeding.  This is the quickest way to stop a bleeding nail on a bird in an emergency.  Kwik Stop is an essential first aid powder that quickly stops the bleeding.  Of course, at the time I did not know about Kwik Stop so the soap really helped.

Below is a great article from Pet Age magazine on First Aid and your Pet Bird by Susan Clubb.  There are many good tips for the new bird owner as well the more experienced bird owner.
