You are super lucky to own not one, but two U2's. You have a beautiful flock!

Can I ask you something, what does U2 stand for? I have seen all these different letters and numbers but never got it.

Beautiful birds! Your U2s certainly are spoiled, in a good way! I envy the amount of space you have for them

Thank you. Both the TOOs are adoptees/rehomes that came from pretty horrible conditions with a lot of baggage. It was the least I could do. The space is one of the best ways to rehab them IME.

You have a beautiful flock. I applaud you for rescuing the too's. It's a sin the number of people who purchase these birds as some kind of status symbol, without ever researching their needs and complexities. Too's are the number 1 most rehomed birds, all because of shear ignorance on the part of humans.

Did I read that right? Your rabbit is 6 years old?? Wow. That is astounding! I knew Flemish Giants could live to be 15 but I was under the impression that other breeds had short life spans, usually 3 to 4 years. Six is really old for a rabbit. You must be doing something right.

The budgies get high quality seed with pellets and green stuff like carrot/beet tops, romaine lettuce and herb salad.

I've seen many rabbits liks monty that are 8 years old. He should be around a few more years anyway.

His real name is "Tika the knife". I have the scars to prove it. He was a real challenge to rehab. He's not the same bird today but he still carries all the "tools" from his horrible past.
