Default Ongoing Thread: Rickey, Lucy, Tweetsum and tiels

I thought I would start my thread off with one of my fav videos and memories of our sweet lucy. For those of you who didn't see my previous posts se was really old and sick and we had to say our good byes. Now that we are doing better I would like to start an ongoing thread that includes Lucy.

Just a little info about our flock(you can skip this lol)

Lucy was our sweet lutino budgie who was found by someone outside here in cold colorado. After trying to find her owner we decided to keep her. She was not tame when we got her and we had no idea what we were doing (our first bird)

A week after we got lucy we got Rickey to be her companion. He was from peptic and had really bad clipped wings. They instantly fell in love and were Rickey and lucy. They were inseperable and did everything together including training and learning to eat veggies. She was always he boss though if she decided rickey shouldn't play he wouldn't. When lucy was sick he fed her and took care of and never left her side. He knew she was sick and wouldn't even leave the cage for a while. He is doing much better now but is still lonely. He will sit in the cockatiels cage an when he is in his own cage sits to where he is closest to the tiels. Tweetsum is still in quarentine and will be joining him in the next few weeks and I know he can't wait. He already knows she is here because he communicates with her all the time. She is just a baby and isn't tame at all at this point but we hope when she joins rickey he will teach her.

The budgies made us realize how much we loved birds and thats how we ended up with 2 cockatiels. For my birthday my husband put down a deposit on a cockatiel egg and she hatched on my birthday. We visited her every week till she was old enough to come home. And that is how we got marty, the day we went to pick up baby they had a male who stole out hearts. We were told we shouldn't get him because he had issues and wasn't tame. We didn't listen though and brought 2 birds home that day. It was the right choice because he is doing great now and is a very amazing boy and is now tame. Baby is also doing great and just recently turned 1 and is probably the tamest birdie in the world(she doesn't think she is a bird though)

I just wanted to share a little info with you because these guys are my life and they make our family so very happy and complete. I can't see our house never having some kind of birdie around. Some of you guys have been here from the day before we even got lucy and I appreciate all the help support and having the same lover for these guys.

Ok onto the pics if you are still with me.
lol wait for it heres lucy!

Jessica,

Thank you for sharing the full story of Lucy and Rickey.
She was a beautiful girl and very fortunate to have been found and adopted by your family.
It's obvious how close Lucy and Rickey were and the pictures of them are are wonderful.

I'll be looking forward to your updates.

Thanks, honestly they were made for each other despite how they met. We feel and even agree that she felt her life was complete when she came into out home and met Rickey.

I wanted to share an update on what we did. We got Lucy's pics orders for my son and a thank you card for the vet since he didn't charge us anything when we out her down. Also our flowers for her garden have sprouted. Here is a pic of the pics they are 11x14 so they are pretty big but that means you can see them lol.
My hand is there to show size.

Jessica, those prints are absolutely beautiful and look like they will make a wonderful addition in your home. Will they be framed and hung in your son's room?

I hope you smile to think of darling Lucy when you see them

Thank you, I'm not sure where they will be hung yet. I got them for my son but I'm afraid he will knock them down in his room since he is a boy in all lol. I would like to put them in the main living area but think people would think it's odd we don't have any other pics up. Even though I, a photographer we have no pics on the wall lol. I like them and they do make me smile because that is how I remember her best, when she was healthy and happy.

Oh my, such delectable photos of such a delectable and loving pair. Lucy seems truly enthralled by Rickey and the love is just oozing all around her

On the 3rd and 4th photo, I can just imagine her saying "Come give mama a kiss, my handsome Mr.Babalu!" in Lucille Ball's lovable and ditzy voice, and he's a bit overwhelmed - "Lucy...you still got some 'splaining to do."

Thanks for sharing their adorable story & photos and definitely awaiting more

Rickey finally meets Tweetsum! We brought her down and the first thing was tweetsum launched herself towards her cage bars to be with Rickey. After a while she calmed down and was acting normal again. At first Rickey didn't pay any attention to her since he is obsessed with the tiels but once she came out for free time they really hit it off. He was sooo happy to have a flying buddy that would follow(Lucy didn't fly with him). The hard part is getting her out than back in. But now that she sees Rickey she is doing much better. If Rickey eats something out of my hand she tries. Yesterday she even tried some celery tops. She really is obsessed with him and he is still unsure if how to handle that since she is the complete opposite of Lucy.
