What would be your dream flock?

I am interested to know what would be everyones dream flock. As in, what birds they would looove to have someday but can't at the moment or at all.

I wish I could have all the parrots, but my these are my favourites, so mine would be.....

*My MB conure Ziggy
*Bentley my budgie

*A buddy for Bentley (a female violet goldenface)
*A breeding pair of hyacinth macaws (very unrealistic!)
*2 palm cockatoos
*An aviary full of golden conures

*DEFINITELY an african grey (inside bird)
*and a breeding pair of amazons because they're quite uncommon in NZ
*Maybe I'd have one of the macaw's babies.
*I also love white bellied caiques.....

Okay, I would love more but I'd have to spread the care and attention around so I can't have too many, although, I probably already would have if I had all the ones on this list!

So what do you guys think?

One of EVERYTHING! Realistically, I would love to add a Cape Parrot and an African Grey. I want a mate for Moose, preferably a WF Cinnamon Pearl, and I want to breed my linnies... maybe get another pair of them... all depends on how much space the boy will give me when we settle down

I'd have...
~Macy and Finn
~Rista
~Briar

~at least 2 more budgies, preferably another pair and I'd like to breed them eventually
~CAG or TAG
~possibly some sort of macaw, a B&G maybe or a hyacinth
~2 tiel's -both whiteface, maybe one cinnomon
~maybe a golden conure
~definately an IRN
~and last but not least a RB2 or a corella

of course most of these will never happen and I know that whatever bird I get next will choose me (but I hope it'll be an african grey )

I love my current four, and never thought I would have this many.
I have a rosey bourkes, a male splendid, a cobalt linnie, and a senegal.

My absolute dream bird would be a female eclectus. However, I am afraid I may not be a good owner for a bird that large. If I knew for sure I could handle one, that is what I would get.

I would alternately get an African grey if I thought I could tolerate the dust, but I am afraid I could not. They don't bother me when I am with them at the bird store, but I am still afraid to try it. Cockatoos DO bother me, most definitely, so I'm afraid to try with a grey.

I also adore lorys, but, again, I know that I cannot tolerate their powdery feed.

I really like rosifrons conures, crimson bellied conures, cape parrots (or uncape as the case may be), quakers, princess of wales parakeets, illiger's macaws, meyers, and Alexandrine ring necks, but there is no way I would want one of each.

I am quite tempted to add one or even two more birds, but which of the above I would actually choose, I can not say. I think one of the conures would probably fit my home and me best.

The other bird I really would like to have, but there is no way I could ever get one, is a violet mutation splendid parakeet. They are not even bred in this country as far as I know, but they certainly are beautiful.

I absolutely love blue fronted amazons, but amazons can be very difficult birds to care for so I doubt I would have one.

In addition to my current two, I would love 4 more parrotlets: a blue, american white/blue dilute, blue pied and green pied. I would also love a yellow sided conure

And I thought I was a crazy bird lady. I think we'll stick to linnies and four would be nice.

I would love to get some mutation Splendids. There are not many people who have them here though, and the only one I found online so far does not ship (and lives in Texas I think), so I don't think that will happen for a while. Probably best that way!

Well, Jen, when you find splendid mutation breeders in the US, let me know, too.

You know, Indiana isn't so far from Michigan that we could not make a road trip together to get some beautiful mutation splendids. I have a hybird and get 50 mpg on the highway. lol

LOL, ship one over to NZ, won't you?

I just looked them up and they are stunning! Too bad mutations of most parrots aren't common over here

Otherwise, I might breed them! Then I'd have LOTS of splendids! Mwahaha!

Ella,
Actually, the normal colored splendids are stunningly beautiful, perhaps more beautiful than any of their mutation varieties. Are normal splendids available in New Zealand?

Apple,
I love the way you prefaced your comments with the fact that you have your dream flock.
