Nice cage set ups, Nikki! Do you know what kind of bird your 3rd one will be?
Another linnie? Another plet? Best wishes!

Hi Nikki, welcome to our forum!

Thanks, I am actually on some birdie lists for a lutino Linnie.

I really would like many other types but because I live in a condo I will have to wait for now.

Thanks, they don't mind one another but if they are stuck in a confined area they squabble but don't really hurt each other but then again I couldn't say for sure as I never give them an opportunity to actually hurt one another.

Birds

Yeah other birds I would love to get would be:

Green cheek conure (pineapple mutation)
Pearly conure
Quaker Parakeet green or blue ( although I would really like a yellow they are rare to find and expensive)
Indian Ringneck (not sure on colour)
Lovebirds (a pied or a fisher )
Budgie (all yellow with a bright green spot on the rump )
Yellow female Parrotlet or male

My first linnie was a gorgeous lutino male cost $400. because it was a male.
Now I was waiting for an ino baby to be weaned when she died at the breeder's. I cried. Also the same day I found out I needed to have a second foot surgery because a foreign body was left after the first one. So I cried harder.
Been on waiting lists as well. As luck would have it I'm getting an cremino from someone I know in driving distance. Thursday!

Awww I am so sorry to hear that, when stuff like that happens it is really difficult. I am glad you didn't give up though looks like your a real fighter!
I can't wait to see pictures you will have to post and get my attention

I do have other animals. currently I have Tico, Lilo (which are my birds), I have 2 Rabbits (1 male American and a female Lionhead), my first real love my cat LH Gold Tabby, and lots of fish I have three tanks up and running... and I look after all of this while going to school full-time and Working part-time.

Aww they are so cute! Is the plet a yellow male?

Honestly I can't decide which one I like better. But if I had to decided maybe my plet cause I have had him longer and have a closer bond with him.
