What the heck?

Crazy Birds



I have an IdeaA Birds Bad Dream

Last night I had this crazy dream!  I dreamed that I was playing the headless cockatiel like I do in the shower and my actual head fell off and down into the bottom of my cage.  It disappeared down in the bubbles from “Can Someone Pass Me the Soap”.  I guess I fell right off the perch and all I could think about is saving my head from disappearing in the bubbles.  I started flapping my wings real hard to blow all the bubbles away from my head.  Hello woke me up by making it daylight with a light bulb and told me to calm down.  She checked my wings for broken blood feathers and would you believe?  My head was just where I left it.

Did you know that it is common for birds to have night frights?  This is why it is important to be sure you keep a night light or a soft light on in the room where a bird sleeps.  Night frights can be dangerous to birds because we can hurt ourselves on toy or break our blood feathers.  Broken blood feathers can cause a bird to bleed to death because it acts as a straw and will not let the wound close up.  If you ever have a broken blood feather you better hope that your person knows how to pull that feather all the way out and save your life.

This is when my idea hit me.

It would be cool to have a light bulb installed right above my head.  It would be like the idea light that appears except this one is there all the time.  Just imagine if I wake up the light comes on and when I sleep it dims out.  If you saw someone with their light out you would know that they were not home and if someone ever had a bad idea it would crack or explode.  Dummies would always be broke from buying bulbs and all the smart ones would be popular.  We would be the life of the party and could light up people’s life.  All the bad guys would wear black lights and all the naughty girls would wear red ones.

You Light up my life!I would be really smart and get the new florescent bulb because they may cost a little more but last 5 to 6 times longer and saves energy.  They also have the coolest shapes!  Teri knows all about florescent bulbs because she was the winner of  “What in Z World Contest Week 7” The picture was a close up of a long florescent bulb that had a bad idea in the kitchen.  Teri be sure to go to my Contact Us page and give me an address to send you a prize and thanks so much for playing.  I bet Teri has a bright light over her head as she is really smart.

I want to ask you guys…..If you had a chance to have a common household item just poof out of no where that you could use what would it be?

Can Someone Pass Me the Soap?

I’m not sure what the code is for cats and why they just hate getting wet.  I think they have been told if they get wet they will melt.  With even a drop it seems they grow extra legs and claws and run like the wind.

Dog in the bath.With dogs the whole bath thing can go either way.  Some do, some don’t!   Rd likes baths because he is always looking for some deer dung to roll in so Hello will have to wash him again.

Fish love to take baths!  I know this because I have yet to see one not in the process of bathing.  Those Fish guys like it so much; Hello has to drop food in while they hang out underwater.  They stay underwater forever and I never see them sleep.  The thing I don’t understand is with all that bathing why do humans say fish smell bad?

I have several interest so I don’t have as much time as Fish to bathe, But, I love getting wet!  Anytime I hear the water turn on I get so excited that it might be my turn to shower.   This week I collected a few pictures of some of my Facebook friends enjoying their shower.
Chiquito playing in the water.This first photo is of Chiquito and her human Liz Visser’s arm.  I love how Chiquito is just hunkered down taking it in.  I think he is trying to be a fish. Through all those drops of water I believe that I can see a smile coming through. You dirty devil your getting clean!

Bella in the shower

Pally Williams took this great photo of Bella taking her bath!  I bet if we were there in the bathroom she would be singing to us.  Look at how she lifts her wings to be sure to get all the feathers.  I do the same thing when I am in the shower but I like to hide my head under my wings. It is kind of a trick I play. I want Hello to think my head went down the drain. Hee Hee

Z with his little bathtub looking at the bubbles

Last of all it is me and my little bathtub!  This bathtub is way to small for me but I like play on it after I take my showers.   I am not to sure about these bubbles floating around in my drinking water but check out this cool bath sponge Hello got.  It fooled all of you on this weeks “What in Z World”.  I loved all of your guesses this week and it could have been all those things but it was just my little sponge buddy I named “Scrub”  I win this week!  Gotcha!

It surprised me to find that the Queen travels with candy.  I am not talking about the Queen of England’s Dorgis (Dachshund X Corgis mix) dog named Candy but a Queen Bee.  That’s right an actual Queen Bee.  This week I stumped everyone playing “What in Z Word” with my weird little boxy thing.

What more pets?…..

See when going down the list of pets here at the farm I neglected to tell you the pet count included bees.  Really the reason was I sent over the 2010 Census forms and they have not sent them back yet.  I can’t seem to find anyone here to go knock on the door to get the answers.

What is that Weird Little Boxy Thing?……

Ok, Ok, See in every hive there are thousand of bees but only one Queen.  During the spring build up a healthy queen bee will lay about 2000 eggs a day.  She will do this for several years.  As one can imagine this chick gets worn slap out and she will have to be replaced with a new energized fresh queen bee at some point.  This happens naturally in nature using several different methods.  For the hobbyist or professional this can become a matter of production or to protect the survival of the colony.

Bee enthusiast will periodically shop for a queen and the weird little boxy thing is what the queen travels in.

The Queens Travel Box

So What’s Up With The Candy?……

You can’t just throw a new queen in an already existing hive and think it is going to go over well.  No way!  Bees are very protective about their hive.  The Queen simply has to be introduced to the colony.  The colony can consist of about 40,000 to 60,000 bees so a receiving line is out of the question.  The little boxy thing provides security to the queen while the new colony adjusts to her scent.  When the queen is placed inside the box a small piece of candy plugs the hole and keeps her from escaping.  The queen will not eat the candy because she has to be feed by the workers.  Queens only lay eggs. (Period)  Once the box is placed in the hive the worker bees begin to pass by the box touching the queen and spreading her scent around the hive and taking a small chunk of candy off of the end.  Like a gift!  Eventually the candy is all gone and the queen’s scent is all over the place offering her an opportunity to leave her chariot and become a part of this new colony.  Cool huh!

Candy here!

What in Z World? (Week 6)

I told you guys that I was going to get harder!  Week 5 proved to be a tough one.  I have decided to step back and make it a little easier this time because I love to get your feed back.  If you don’t have a guess at least make a stab at it or make fun of it.  This week on What in Z World, I was flying around the house and came across this item.  I took a close up of it so you can make a guess at it.  Later I will give you a bird’s eye view so you can see it you were right.  Good Luck!

Here we go…….

How to Eat Your Pets and Not Go To Jail!

That’s right have you ever said “That’s so cute I could just eat um up?”  Well at Cockatiel Confession we have found a place you can do just that.  I have included detailed instructions on how this should be done.

It’s as Easy as 1, 2, 3, 4…….

1.Decide which pet or if all of your pets would be delicious enough to eat. (Here at the farm I think Hello would pick most of us but not so much RD because he likes to roll in deer dung and that wouldn’t make him so munchy).

2. You would then go to the site and decide on size, if you want flavored icing, ribbons or gift wrapping. (I think the icing might make me look fat but it will surly make Hello fat if she ate me everyday)

3. Make order and send money!  (This lady is talented and needs to be paid for it.)   Susanna Caliendo not only produces cookies for celebrities and corporations, she has appeared on several shows spotlighting her work. (Only the best for the Z)

4. Now wait! …………. While you are waiting let’s celebrate and congratulate this weeks winner of the “What in Z World” Contest.  The picture is a close up of  Hello’s Grandmother’s rolling pin.  Hello says she made the best chickin n dumplin’s (Chicken pastery for you guys in CA)  She also made cookies!
Grandmother's Rolling Pin

I have to admit you guys are getting good.  Suzi put the answer up almost as soon as it hit the net.  I am really going to have to get tricky and pull out my harder stuff.  Kierstin Contompasis – (this girl rocks) she guessed something I was going to use in another week or so.  (Forget it too easy)  Carys Jones yes you did get it correct but Suzi beat you to the punch.  Then to my surprise Kathy from the Junk Drawer started playing and I knew I was doomed.  She claims she is not good at this and threw up a wrong answer but don’t let her fool you she invented the game.  I’ll stump you for sure…………….Are your cookies here yet?……………….Thank you everyone for playing.  I love posting when I feel like I have an audience.  Birds like an audiences as you know!  We like Cookies too.  When you get yours eat the feet first so they don’t get away.
