We finally got our beautiful linnies!
They're called Cheech and Chong, they're both green, they have hatched and raised their own chicks, they were being bullied by the kakarikis at the ladies house so she wanted to let them breed alone.

When I got them the one bit my hand SO hard I actually screamed. Probably one of the nastiest bites I've ever had! The thing didn't let go :eek:

They've settled in really well already!

I LOVE how they have big googly eyes, they're very very cute :biggrin5:

And I really love the way they stomp around like little dinosaurs hehe!

I did take a couple of pictures but they move around a lot! So they're not great.

Also as a greeting the one did a great big poop on my head :rolleyes:

:giggle: Welcome to the world of linnies! When they DO decide to bite, they mean business! But they're not known for being biters

Daisy,
I love them.
I've never been bitten by a linnie. I've only handled five total. None of them bit, even the one who was very afraid of hands. Our Elisa never bites.
I don't think I ever want to feel a linnie bite. Can you compare it to the bite of another bird? Is it worse than the bite of a small conure? Perhaps you've never had a small conure bite you, either, lol.
Now you really do have to check out the linnie forum. There are several members on that forum from the UK who routinely co-parent their babies.

Haha thanks guys. It wasn't a bite on purpose, like they didn't attack me. I had to get it out of the ladies cage and into my travel thing. So that's why I had the bite. I'd say I'd rather be nipped by a macaw haha! I might check out the forum soon! And Jessie, I love them already, I think you would too :p

Bob,
My linnie gets along really well with grass keets. There are breeders on the linnie forum. Some are probably close to you. :giggle:
