Hello

Hi, I'm over on the Parrotlet board, decided to check things out here. At present I have 6 birds (4 'Tiels & 2 Parrotlets), but I know that at some point in the future I will have more. I thought this would be good place to learn about the different species and figure out which one(s) would be best suited to my lifestyle & needs. I love them all, although I certainly have some I prefer over others. Anyway...that's why I'm here...I also have a pet turtle and 4 rather large aquariums, although technically those belong to the husband.

Cheers,

Shouldn't ask me for pictures, I've only got couple thousand of them You can probably figure out who is who, the flock consists of ...

M'éanín (Gaelic for "my little bird")~ Male Pacific Parrotlet, Pastel Dilute Turquoise
Marthanóir (Gaelic for "survivor", she's a rescue who was in pretty bad shape when I got her)~ Female Pacific Parrotlet, Cobalt Blue

Pancakes~ Female Lucinda Cockatiel
Chestnut~ Male Normal Grey Cockatiel
Cinnamon~ Male Normal Pied Cockatiel
Skrill~ Female Pearl Pied Cockatiel

They all get along really well with the exception of Marthanóir and the 'Tiels. She was abused by a Conure at her last home (I'm at least her 4th FINAL home in her short little life which is estimated at 12-18 months) and is really scared of other birds. I have been working with her quite a bit and it's really only been in the past week or two that she has decided that M'éanín isn't going to hurt her and they have become the best of buddies and are now sharing a cage even!! All of these photos are from my home office, which is where I spend majority of my time and where the Parrotlets are housed, the 'Tiels are just outside my office in the Foyer, but they come in here to play in the window perch, which is presently under construction since I'm turning the entire window into a playgym, just need to finish rearranging my desk first. I also make about 95% of their toys, perches included, it's hobby that seems to help relax me hhaha
