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.
