Hi...

Just thought I'd pop over from the Linnie group and see what this group is all about...I have a few birds...4 lineolated parakeets or linnies, one teil, and one rosey bourke and one little ole parrolette...I can never remember how to spell that LOL!!! I have a breeding pair of linnes...Teeka, a turquoise female and Slater my male mauve or slate linnie...I also have a baby that I kept from the last clutch of 4 and it is a male named Chilli or Chilli Bop...He is a cobalt and is a none stop learner for talking and picking up tunes to whistle...I also have a green femlae Nim that was in a contest on the linnie group and did very well....My teil is 19 years old and named Toby...Didn't find out she was a she until the eggs started to come...And she still lays...Rosie is my rosey bourke and she is a sweet gentle little girl...So soft to the touch...The parlet' is was named Molly when I got her and HE is now known as Mr. Molly...Yup another wrong guess by his previous owner...I am a older Mom of 4 grown up children and a grandmother of 4 and a GREAT grandmother of 2...The oldes ggrandson is 5 and the youngest will be one month old on the 16th of October...My husband died 6 years ago Sept. 19th and so am alone for human companionship...I have 2 dogs..Holli is an almost 13 yr. old German Shorthair Pointer and Skittles is a one year old Daschund...What a hand full they can both be...I love to camp and scrapbook...Lots of scrap booking ahead now with the new great grandson...Tomorrow is Canadain Thansgiving and am having 6 others over for super..(I think 6 or could be 8)...My poor little 1 bedroom apartment will be VERY crowded..But filled with love and good smells...Anyways...This is me...Gail from Ontario Canada...

Hey Gail, glad to see 'ya!

This group is different because it's for all parrots - not just Linnies. However, unlike other general parrot forums, we are trying to keep the focus on small parrots and their specific care/needs.

We are also bringing members from Dave's three communities: TalkBudgies, TalkCockatiels, and TalkParrotlets.

Best Regards from
Nick and the flock:
Lily & Linden - Lineolated Parakeets | Oscar & Maya - Parrotlets | Harpo - Quaker
