My parakeet Steve would like to know how many relatives he has out here on this forum. He was a little miffed to find he wasn't included in the poultry count, but got over it quickly when he remembered how much higher his species ranks in the bird world (his opinion, not necessarily mine). He just doesn't like poultry, and heartily resents it whenever he has to share his patio space with brooder boxes of chicks or ducklings. So please, for Steve's benefit, add your total number of PARAKEETS, specifically budgerigars, not any other type of caged birds like cockatiels, love birds, canaries or finches. Steve and I both thank you. I'll keep him updated as to the total. Steve (1) + your number = ___?
