Hello from Ellie May and her feathered friends

Hiya, my Name is stacey but most call me Ellie May..I Started off with just a few lovebirds that where looking for a home that nobody wanted and the owner was going to eventually just let them go.. I was not thinking that a very good idea.. so i took them.. I haveonly done things like cat/dog/rabbit type rescue and rehomeing no birds.. but .. i did.. and what started out as only 2 love birds ended up with 8, i know crazy.... so after a few mnths of having the lovies a coworker of a friend of mine who worked at the pet store was trying to find a home for her parrotlets and asked if i would be interested in them..I kindly said no, i had just gotten into a hug mess with the 8 lovies i had just taken in and wasent even sure of how to really care for them.. but as the weeks whent on and they where soon in fear of going to the human society i caved and took them in.. so now i have 8 loves and 2 parrotlets..oh but it dident stop there.... a few mnths ago..I took in my sister in laws mothers cockatiels cus i have always liked them.. and thought what the heck why not.. i swear sometimes i dont use my brain at all.... and i mean i love each and every one of them as they are all different and personality wise they are great but i really wanted not only a companion bird but one i could hold and cuddle.. so that being said i was given a sun conure as a Christmas gift .. not like i had enough birds already but within a day or so i was in love.. so hear i stand.. deep in feathers and head over heels in love..and so much in need of proper guidance on some issues and things i can do to help them all.. i have made an oath to keep them..and i will stand by my decision to do so..just may need a little support along the way.. so thats my store how I fell in so deep with in a years time

no, he just loves his adoptive family, he mimicks them, preens them, shares food (and I dont mean stand on the same bowl kind of share food, I mean the nauseating, head bobbing kind)

oh yuck, my sun conure does that to me daily he even ugh you know..puke son me and eats it up its so gross I wish I could stop him from doing that .. he loves to try and have special cuddles.. I know its just a bird thing but gosh i really just don't like it ..
None of my birds really like any other of the species, cockatiel even sometimes could care less about his cage mate..my loves are never out of big flight cage while any others are free flying because the are the pitbull of the bird world and mean.. and my parrotlets are with eggs so.. and once when they where out they tried bitting the toes off my cocatiel so the to do not fly when others are out.. and my conure.. well he is a mommas boy so..

Welcome to the forum! You sound like me too. But you can't save everybody (is usually what is told to me!). I have a Harris' hawk, an American kestrel, 3 green cheek conures, 1 hybrid conures, 1 black capped conure, 6 peach faced lovebirds, 5 cockatiels, 4 red fronted kakarikis, 2 celestial parrotlets, 1 black capped lory, 15 budgies, 1 canary & a few zebra finches I recently downsized on my canaries and finches though as I am moving home and didn't feel the canaries would fit in so much with the outdoor flock and the finches, I lost a lot in our bad weather when a storm came in but yeah, big flock here too!

Welcome! Great to see you on here.

Thanks for the intro

Your flock sounds lovely. We have also got a ton of birds in less than a year. We have 5 'pets' soon to be 6 when I pick my baby up next month, 1 charity case - I don't really call her a pet as she is really scared of people but being hatched with a bent toe and being small she can't be a breeder, and then I have 6 potential breeding birds (all unproven).

I hope you enjoy your stay!
