How many birds do you currently own? I'm curious how people handle owning a bunch of birds.

At one time I owned 2 cockatiels 4 budgies and 2 canaries and found it a crazy mayhem of crazy fun activity and noise.

Do you remember how you and your flock grew?

We have 7 parrots (3-RFM, 2-GCC, 1-Caique, and 1-Cockatiel) and 1 mini aussie. My husband and I are both retired so this helps keep down the mayhem! LOL

How did it start out with you? Did you have 1 bird and thought "NOPE we have to have 2 birds and then more and more!"

What breed type was your first bird?

My son bought a peachfaced lovebird then a week later my two daughter's just had to have a bird also so got a one legged cockatiel and the lovebirds older brother from a previous clutch. Next came a greencheek conure for my son, as his lovebird fell in love with my husband. When we moved and I quit working I had to have a greencheek for myself and then a caique. Then husband fell in love with the red fronted macaws and he got three of them needing new homes. All our neighbors call us the crazy bird people. When my kids moved out after college we inherited their birds what were still alive. We still have the original cockatiel and greencheek who are both 17 years old.

Awwwww I love this story, especially because you took on a one legged cockatiel. Its always great to hear people adopt or buy the bird nobody else will have because its missing some body part or its a plucker or some other sad reason.

I love that your husband took on the macaws as well, this is a sign of great crazy bird people and you are alright in my book.

Thanks for sharing.

I have... a lot It all started with a cockatiel called Paulie. I was really young and I loved birds in every shape or form. My life revolved around birds even then. I grew up at my grandparents and my nan was phobic of birds (she's okay now but nervous when they're in flight) so she said there's no chance I could have one. My grandad snuck me out to a bird specialist store and I picked out a lutino cockatiel. I felt sorry for him being in a cage and I asked if we could build an aviary. I now have 4 large aviaries and 2 smaller aviaries. I keep my birds of prey too, as well as diamond doves and Japanese quail. It just exploded. I had my companion parrots, which was amazing and then I lost them and it broke me. I lost my spark a bit. Then Squishee and Holly fell into my life and it's bloomed right back up

Its great you started liking them when you were younger and it grew into something you really enjoy today now you are older. You certainly have lots of experience with different breeds and its excellent you have 6 aviaries of assorted birds.

It will be interesting to see what your life will be like with more or different birds in 10 years or more.

I have a plum head, a sun conure, an adult Alex and a couple of baby Alex's that I'm hand raising at the moment. And yesterday a baby ring neck flew into my garden and is refusing to leave.

Nice to see you here again, and of course you know we'd love to see some photos of your plum head and sun con and the baby ring neck in your garden!
