Oh my goodness @ all them abbreviations. :eek: Thank you for posting that now I'll keep it so I remember and won't keep asking, lol.

Very cute wabbit! :lovehearts:
how cool!! great list by the way...thumbs up from me!! We just found out that our grey loves freezee pops too!!!
Beautiful birds! Your U2s certainly are spoiled, in a good way! I envy the amount of space you have for them
Thank you. Both the TOOs are adoptees/rehomes that came from pretty horrible conditions with a lot of baggage. It was the least I could do. The space is one of the best ways to rehab them IME.
You have a beautiful flock. :lovehearts:I applaud you for rescuing the too's. :hurray: It's a sin the number of people who purchase these birds as some kind of status symbol, without ever researching their needs and complexities. Too's are the number 1 most rehomed birds, all because of shear ignorance on the part of humans. :mad:
A budgie that is 10 years old!!!!How great. I sure hope mine live to be that old. I am curious..what is its main diet?
You have such a beautiful flock! :D
Beautiful birds and nice set up. :thumbsup: Love your dwarf parrot. :biggrin5:
Did I read that right? Your rabbit is 6 years old?? Wow. That is astounding! I knew Flemish Giants could live to be 15 but I was under the impression that other breeds had short life spans, usually 3 to 4 years. Six is really old for a rabbit. You must be doing something right. :)
Your flock is amazing! And of course that includes Monty!
Wonderful flock. Love the bunny :biggrin5:
The budgies get high quality seed with pellets and green stuff like carrot/beet tops, romaine lettuce and herb salad.

I've seen many rabbits liks monty that are 8 years old. He should be around a few more years anyway. :)
LOL i keep forgetting that Tika is a male. You should rename him Tiko..... actually never mind Tika is cool he's obviously used to it too.
Aww! What a beautiful flock! :D
LOL i keep forgetting that Tika is a male. You should rename him Tiko..... actually never mind Tika is cool he's obviously used to it too.
His real name is "Tika the knife". I have the scars to prove it. He was a real challenge to rehab. He's not the same bird today but he still carries all the "tools" from his horrible past.
