Hello

Hi,
I have a very tame black-headed caique and 3 lineolated parakeet.
Well, used to be 4, Sadly I've just lost my lovely blue male linnie which was bonded with Greenie the female. I'm still in shock to lose my Blue but more worried about Greenie who lost her partner so sudden.
We do want to get a company for her if she accepts it, but it may be a long shot since I cannot find many linnie breeders in UK.
If anyone can give me suggestion/ advise on getting a company for poor widow Greenie, it will be much appreciated.
Sorry for a sad introduction. I'm normally very happy person..

Welcome and sorry for your loss. Linnies are not easy to find, so I wish you luck with that. There is a group on Facebook that has lots of members not from the US. Might try there called Linnie Lovers Only.

I think ONI is from the UK isn't she? I also believe she has Linnie's so may be able to give some leads as to where one may be found.

Welcome to our forum, Eddie!
I'm sorry you lost your blue linnie.
But Oni and apj are breeders from UK. You could ask them if they have a linnie for you.

Welcome to our group and I am so sorry for your loss! Why don't you send a PM to Oni and APJ to see what they have available?

Both of them are fantastic breeders I know Layla personally. I'm sure one of them will get you a linnie! Sorry for your loss and welcome to the forum

I'm sure Layla is the lovely lady whom I provided one of my baby linnie. that was the last clutch from my late Blue. nice to find her here. I've messaged apj to ask for help.. thank you again everyone.

Sorry to hear about your loss. Was he very old? Can't find to much info on actual life span in captivity or possible aliments of linnies. I hope you are able to get another linnie for your little girl.

The actual life span of linnies in captivity is about 10 years.

Hi, Thank you for the welcome.
No, he wasn't that old. the shop we bought him from didn't know his actual age but he was at oldest 3 -4 years old. So it was unexpected since there was no sign I could pick up. I'm asking around at moment looking for my girl's company.
Wish me luck
