Smile Parrot Abbreviations

If you're new to parrot owning, or to this site, or even an expert, you may find some words scattered around peoples posts like 'MBC' or 'LSC'
and you may have no idea what they mean.
I must admit, until you get to know this site and learn some abbreviations, it can be quite hard sometimes understanding what bird people are referring to!

Here is a list of common abbreviations:

AKEET - American Parakeet

FIDS - Feathered Kids

FRATS - Feathered Brats

(same as medium, just larger)

VE - Vosmaeri's Eclectus

Ok, I added photos- I can only put 25 in there, so I tried to pick species that were less common. Let me know if you want me to add any more and I can split the post up
