Baby photos hehe I've got my previously apprehensive partner researching and saving like crazy for our baby. I just showed him the photo the breeder sent me of the babies!

Ohhh get a Cape parrot! Very interesting birds Show them tons of photos of the bird you want, videos anything. Say this third bird is the LAST bird you will buy (we've all heard that before) and then you'll be satisfied

The trick is to never let your woman move in, in the first place then you could have anything you want..when you want a little bit you just go over to hers sorry I'm no help, I live on my own.

Good luck with this! I've had to convince my parents over and over for years and years to let me bring birds into the house. It's a pain, but well worth it, haha!

Bring on the advice!! Oh gosh now I'm thinking one more linnie!!! I have two males, one female. But I'm looking for one before I dare open mouth. Will it even be worth asking I'm looking at dealing with anger here...

My problem is my husband says, I trust you'll know your limit. He'll never say no, but that is almost worse lol. But anyway, 3 birds is my limit right now with two dogs.

I'm saved from having to make that choice!!! Cindy only has two green male linnie babies left. I won't look any where else.

So you aren't getting one? Or you are? If I ever want another linnie, I'll keep Cindy in mind for sure.

No. I was thinking about the old saying two is company threes a crowd. Watching my linnies behavior changed my mind. I'm betting that a good part of Skyler getting loud is the fact that Karma loves to be with me. That was ok at first because she was new. Karma has been here for 2 months showing interest in Levi Like I was hoping. Yesterday was the first time they spent the night together, and it's good. If I want another linnie I have Cindy's number and e-mail
