Jaz, Ron, Bertie and Kiki !!

Jaz is our African Grey Parrot who we had give to us last year. He is very much a mans bird... He adores my dad and tolerates me and my mum He does enjoy it when we sit and talk to him and he has picked up two phrases from me "Go away" and "I can't do that" He does have a wide range of words and sounds he uses but goes through phases of which he likes to say.







Ron is our new Crimson Rosella. We rehomed him from our Local Wildlife Hospital along with Kiki and a budgie.







Bertie is our Indian Ringneck who was found and no owner came forward to claim him. We ended up with him as the people who found him could not keep him due to having cats.







Kiki is our new Kakariki rehomed from the wildlife hospital
Only one decent photo of her as she is hard to photograph... Usually hiding away or sitting somewhere which doesn't make for a nice photo



I think thats all...

I would KILL for a grey Indian ringneck I bought a wild caught one that was in a pet store and I'm hoping to get her a man soon when I can afford it. Poor girl. He's very handsome but he's missing the same talon on the same toe and everything as my IRN

Your grey is absolutely beautiful too. I dunno whether its me or your camera but he's one of the darkest Congo's I have ever seen!

I love crimson rosellas, personally, I find them prettier than the golden mantled they're so fluffy looking!

Annnnnd being as I'm kakariki mad I have to say yours is very beautiful I think Lutino kaks are the prettiest

I just noticed you're in the UK!
I autoamtically assume everyone is in the USA or Canada when they join!
I love your birds, they look in wonderful condition.
Does your IRN do ok outside?
I know they're naturalised here but I wondered how they faired in the cold and rain.

Stunning! I love the Rosella!

Bertie was found in our friends garden, unfortunately no one claimed him and they could not keep him any longer due to their cats. My mum was thinking of getting him a girl - friend but I keep hearing 'horror' stories saying they can hurt one another etc etc. and become agressive ! I still have much to learn about IRN.

I think it may be my photos and editing :P He is the usual grey like most African Greys.

Well seeing as your a Kakariki fan... What can you tell me about them? Again I still have much to learn and I am unsure of Kiki's sex... Though me and a friend are guessing female?

I am the same ! Always assuming people are from a different country

Thank you! He seems to be ok outside at the moment. He was found in a garden so not sure what he was living like before... He doesn't seem to be tame as he gets spooked by us but doesn't bite, just makes a lot of fuss

I hope to think he'll be just fine outside, I can't see a reason for him not to, seeing as we do have wild IRNs.

I thought female also by some of the research I have done.

I don't know Anything that you think might become useful?
We are thinking of getting her a friend so she has another type of bird like her... would a male be best?

Kakarikis are pretty social birdies so I can't imagine her not getting along with another female. I currently have a cinnamon baby female for sale if you would be interested haha! I would not keep another type of birds with her though
