If you're new to parrot owning, or to this site, or even an expert, you may find some words scattered around peoples posts like 'MBC' or 'LSC'

Ok, I added photos- I can only put 25 in there, so I tried to pick species that were less common. Let me know if you want me to add any more and I can split the post up :thumbsup:
