Hi! I'm new to the forum, but not new to birds. I've always had a pet bird, be it a budgie or cockatiel (even chickens!). I'm Quin, a gal currently residing in Northern Michigan though will be moving down to Texas next year.
I currently have 2 birds.
Iggie is an 18 year old grey cockatiel whom I saved up for about a year to purchase when I was only 9 years old. When I purchased him he was only about 3 months old.
Gracie is a new addition. Named "Gracie" by a coworker of mine (Gracie was injured at the pet store\pet supplies store we work at and my coworker thought it was a funny name), at first we thought Gracie was female. I do believe that he's actually male but the name stuck. He was given to me because of his injured foot and the knowledge that we probably wouldn't be able to sell him. He was put in the office where we bonded. He's only been home with me for a few weeks now but he's a sweetie.
They haven't been introduced yet as each bird is still quaratined away from each other. Because of college and living situations, Iggie has spent many years away from me - either at my mother's or at my future in-laws place. I literally just brought him home with me today. So eventually I'd like them to be friends (won't house them in the same cage though) but we'll take it nice and slowly.
Besides my two birdie babies, I also have 2 miniature horses and keep a freshwater aquarium as well. So yeah that's my introduction. I might lurk on the forums for a while but I'm excited to meet others!
