This Month's Theme:
Lucky, Lucky, Lucky!
The month of March brings us St. Patrick's Day,
and
talk of
"Luck of the Irish" and such. πŸ€
This thought reminded me of something I talk about EVERY DAY...

How very lucky I am to have the privilege of
sharing my life with some truly amazing beings, my birdies. ❀️❀️❀️

So, this time, let's see pictures that show
what we all know and feel: How lucky and blessed we are
that our birds allow us to serve them, be with them,
and most of all, love them.

Oh wow, what a wonderfully inspired contest theme, Jon! All of your birdies sure got lucky in triplicate when they got to come home with you πŸ’– Now to go put my thinking cap on and come up with a worthy entry!
 
Jon, wow! I love your theme, and I can't wait to see all the entries and JFFs. I think we're going to see lots of lucky parronts and their birds this time around. Better keep my kleenex close.
 
Official Entry - Lovejoy, Jem, Val & Fang star in "The Team Meeting :)"

I am the very lucky parront of a flock of four (reasonably🀞) well-behaved little birds, all of whom get on (fairlyπŸ™) happily together. Bringing a new birdie into the household is always a gamble as we never know how they'll fit in with the existing flock members - luckily Lovejoy has slotted right in and is now bestest buddies with Val, they are SO lucky to have each other! And I am lucky and so very blessed to be mum to all four of them πŸ’– πŸ’– πŸ’– πŸ’–

Okay, first of all, The Rb and I would like to know if you would adopt us.
Second... thanks for a great theme... the perfect opportunity to show you how lucky you'd be to have us!!!!!
I've got the paperwork rolling already! ❀️ Wait, can I adopt my own big sister? I'll have to look into that. We can surely give it a try :)

I adore your beautiful flock, Mart, they are so lucky to have you, and you them. I also love watching your journey together.
It looks like Fang is standing watch while the others are in their meeting. With the side-eye Lovejoy is giving you, the meeting may be about how to get to the treats without Mom seeing. :D

Lol, expect to receive adoption papers in the mail like I did when she long-distance adopted Xander!

Great theme for this month, and since March 17 is World Budgie Day, I'd like to enter my precious budgie, Rocky BalBirden, who I raised from an egg, in this month's contest because she's one of the world's luckiest budgies. Her Mama couldn't incubate and raise her so I had to do it myself, and I had no experience at all. If I hadn't followed expert advice Rocky wouldn't even be alive, so she's a pretty darn lucky budgie!

That's an awesome series of pics.

Just For Fun............................................

Okay, wait a gosh darn minute.
Great theme. I think I can make it work or a bunch of us!!
I'm going to keep MY HEN (the delightfully coquettish and lucky GaleriaGila) but I will happily forfeit the immense LUCKINESS which The Rickeybird imparts to daily life, from morning to night, year 'round, oh yes indeed.
Following is a brief digital sampling of this lucky, lucky luckiness.



Ah, the cute little things he does all day long.
we.jpg


He just loves St. Pat's Day!
BOO2.jpg






And of course, the Celtic Booty Song...............................
His version, something like Booty, booty, whatcha got a big booty o the dance floor. Booty! B'gosh!



He speaks Gaelic! Here he wishes you all a sparkling emerald green month, with a special nod to Jon for coming up with the idea!

I'll look around for some more Celtic inspirations in the Rb scrapbook and elsewhere.






Oh, and here's a little guy she adopted. Not sure where she hides him. But he can go, too. His name is Zander.
Green.jpg



Yeah, whatever.
Anyway, let's talk. I'm starting to feel lucky. How about you? :)


Peace out
Rival.............
 
Hi everyone πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

I’ve just stumbled across this website and so happy to join!

I have 15 beautiful feathered babies πŸ₯°

I’ll post my latest addition for my official entry, an Indian Ringneck, only had him for a month, because his/her name is πŸ’šπŸ€ LUCKY! πŸ€πŸ’š

I also have the pleasure of sharing my life with 10 budgies, 2 cockatiels and 2 parrotlets πŸ₯° (and 2 furbabies but that’s for another site lol)

My budgies are named Bluey, Louie, Cali, Tweety Pie, Apple, Crumble, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter ❀️

My cockatiels are named Pippin and Chicken ❀️ (Both rescues)

My parrotlets are named Ronnie and Reggie ❀️ (Both rescues)

And of course, as I said, my IRN is named Lucky πŸ€ ❀️

All have free flight from morning until night, very VERY spoilt and all very much loved. They’re helping me through one of the toughest times in my life, and for that I’m forever grateful.

Sorry to go on and for all the photos, it’s hard to choose isn’t it!!

Rachel x

My luck is that I got to spend a whole year with Sherlock and I hope to spend more with him too! He is currently a 1 year old.
