DeDe was given to us 21 years ago. She was a sad little bird that
had a personality like Don Knotts and was spitting up blood. We took her in knowing she
would die soon. Did I say that was 21 years ago? DeDe has weathered the years with many
health problems. We love her dearly and hope she lives another 21 years.
Our neighbor loved DeDe and wanted a bird just like her. We found a breeder and on
April 15, 1988 and Maverick the egg became a baby Quaker. She lived with my neighbor for
many years. My husband and I would go on vacation and left DeDe with the neighbor. DeDe
loved her visits with Maverick. Maverick was very talkative. She said things like: give me
a kiss, bye, hello, Maverick, DeDe, pretty pretty birdie, ha ha ha, DeDe bad birdie, good
night, Happy Birthday to you, Judy, etc. DeDe is just sweet.
