newbie

I joined last week and haven't formally introduced myself. My name is Jennifer, I have currently a fischer lovebird "Pickles" who is quite vocal most days. I also have been looking at getting another larger parrot at the first of the year. Which I have found a little guy/gal and I secured my deposit. I will be bringing home a Goffin Cockatoo around mid January. Currently I'm thinking about naming him/her Penny. I also have a golden retriever, and 2 cats, as well as my husband has 2 shih tzu. Our house is quite comical at times. :-)

I have heard that cockatoo's are a "different" sort of life style. I am hoping its not too challenging. I looked at other types and just kept going back to the goffin.
