Hello hello

Hey everyone.

Well, I'm obviously new here. Most of you know me from Talk Budgies. But for those who don't, my name is Brandon, and I currently own a budgie named Finnigan. I will be getting a new budgie soon, so I can't wait for that.

I would love to get a Green Cheek Conure someday, but my mom is afraid of big birds.

So yeah, thanks for reading, and I'm glad I can be around to see this forum grow.

I brought her to the petshop, and she said they were waaaay too big. And I agree, they aren't even big at all.

Yes, I've seen umbrella cockatoo. She would have a heart attack if she saw one.

Welcome Brandon. I agree with everyone. A GCC is not big but I can see where your mom is coming from. Compared to a budgie it does seem big.

Hi and welcome, Brandon, it's funny to think of a green cheek being "big", but I guess compared to a budgie............ Keep chipping away at your mom, maybe she will fold some day and let you have one, they really are a lot of fun
