Good News and Bad News!

First the bad news. I lost my beloved linnie Boo. And it was all my fault! Our senegal was on a playstand that was too close to Boo's cage. Boo jumped on to it and I couldn't get there fast enough. Mango bit Boo's beak. He lost a lot of blood, but made it through the night. I took him to the vet the next day, Friday. She said that he would probably lose his beak but should be fine. She put him on anti-biotics. We were going out of town so we took him with. On Saturday morning he didn't look good and by 10:00 he was gone. Vet and I agree that it was too much stress for him. I am the worst birdy mommy ever!

Then the good news! About three weeks later there was a linnie on Hoobly. I decided that this little bird was meant for me. So meet Jif. He is a sweetheart who loves to cuddle and loves scritches. When I look at my siggy I realize that I haven't been on here for a while - sorry! I'm going to try to be better. Ollie, Sasha, and Axel have all gone off to be breeders. Sasha is in love and checking out the nest box! If she has babies, I will get one. I have got a dusky pionus baby that I am totally in love with. His name is Atlas. And we also got a rubino rosella. He is yellow and red and so gorgeous! He doesn't like to be held or petted but he is tame and makes the coolest whistling noises ever. I guess that I need a new siggy - anybody?

Hmmm it won't let me attach a picture. I will try again later.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Don't blame yourself accidents happen and its hard to keep them all seperated when you have so many.

Linnies rock your new little guys sounds awesome

Hum! I am sorry this has happened. It is so hard to come to terms with this sort of thing.
I am in trouble on another forum because for me having my Tiels and the two Alex has been trouble free, and shouting that mixed birds out together can work.
And I got told off because of the sort of thing that has happened to Boo.

A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.

I am very sorry for your loss, but congratulations on your new babies

clawnz, I MUST see you Alexandrine's. I want one (or two) so so so so bad but I have to wait for the time being, they're amazing. I never used to like one but I met one of them in a store and decided I was going to go and get him. He'd been there for over two years! And guess what? When I went in there he had gone

What a lot of Changes Sally.
Hello Jif, Rip Boo.
I'm thinking of breeding linnies, are they noisy or anything?
Also thinking of putting a pair in with the tiels, they're both pretty non aggressive species and aviary is big enough they can get away from each other.

Kate, I recently saw somebody housing them with budgies with no problem in an open aviary. They seemed pretty happy!

that's sad about your linnie, and I can totally understand how you're feeling! When my sister killed our linnie earlier this year, I was devastated. It was like we had lost a member of the family. Never had I met such a lovely bird as that linnie. And no, you're NOT a bad mommy! It wasn't your fault, these things just happen, and there's nothing you can do. At least you tried to get there in time. I tried to stop my sister hitting Kawaii with a stick but she still hit him.
I've had that problem with attaching pictures as well, wonder why it is?

When I get my sennie, I am planning to introduce them in the beginning and will try to get them to coexist. Perhaps If I make my sennie like him from an early age that they might get along. But if I see that there is no hope then I will have to keep them separated.
