Welcome, Amberlea.
I found this forum through the linnie forum, which I found by browsing for information on linnies prior to having any birds.
I have a rosey bourkes, a cobalt lineolated parakeet, a pineapple green cheek conure, a senegal, a maximillian pionus, and an african grey.
I love both budgies and cockatiels.

Kim,
What happened with the wild colored bourkes?


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

Send a message via AIM to Jenny
to the forum! I too decided to help with this forum when Nick from the Linnie Forum mentioned wanting to create an all-birds forum.

Tiels are always such a joy A second sounds like a fun idea!

Gorgeous! Tell us about their personalities. Jack looks like he is getting ready to start something. Was he?

No he was not

Coco is a sweety, very shy and he loves cuddles. He is very smart and gentle. He is never a bad boy.

Oscar is the curious and funny one. He flirts a lot and is a very sassy boy.

Talola is very shy and sits to one side a lot. When she does speak she is very cute. She has been ill a lot of an air sac problem but she is a fighter.

Jack is a bold character he is very cuddly because he is plump and he loves to cause mayhem. He is very clumsy and he is very strong.

Charlie is a talented cockatiel who has learnt many things including 16 tricks and how to mumble hello. He loves baths, scratches, cuddle and vegtables/fruit and he is very spoilt

I love to hear about bird tricks. He seems very smart, and you must be a good trainer, too.

He is smart but I don't know about me being good!

He is on the verge of cracking how to open his cage door. He is trying and failing but he has the motion
