New to Forum

Hello everyone on Talk Parrots! I am new to this forum. I live with my husband, his dog, 4 aquariums and my new 6 mo old, green-cheeked conure named Taz. Taz was purchased on this New Year's Day because my 2, 1 yr old parrotlets, Einstein and Angel died this past Christmas Eve.
I had almost gave up on birds when my sweetheart parrotlet of 11 years, my loving Pixie, died in my hand on the 2014 Christmas Eve. Very weird. We have NO idea how these deaths occurred. We have torn our hair out trying to understand why.
I am not new to birds. In the past, besides parrotlets, I have owned a spicy double yellow headed Amazon and an African Grey with a potty mouth! Both are still happy last I heard.
So now, Taz is already healing my heart. She's been with me for only a month and she is awesome! I look forward to meeting you all and sharing our experiences and photos.

Hi Dulci, welcome to Talk Parrots to you and Taz, I'm sorry you lost your budgies over the holidays losing pets is never easy I'm happy to hear Taz is helping you heal.

We love photos here so please feel free to share any you have of Taz and your other pets as well.

Hello and welcome to the forum! So sorry to hear of your losses, unfortunately the only way we can usually find out is through having a necropsy done I'm glad Taz is helping you heal, it's amazing what they can do for us isn't it? By the way, we will be demanding photos of your feathered kid!

Hello Dulci, welcome to the forum!

I am so sorry about your birdies, how sad. How odd that they both passed on the same day. Is it possible that something dangerous was used around them, like non-stick pans, air freshener, candles, ect?

Congratulations on Taz! I know we would love to see some pictures. Green Cheeks are awesome, I have three girlies!

Thank everyone for making me feel so welcomed. I hope my new baby Taz will be with me for many years although I will be very anxious when Christmas Eve looms! I'll get some pics of her soon to share so you can see what a pretty bird she is !
