    I was gonna say finches, I see you have finches on your website. They are such happy little birds. The other one I would choose to give as a birthday gift would be a canary. They are so beautiful and have such a wonderful voice!


    BTW- I see you have ringneck doves. I am interested in 2 female, white doves. I have 2 very lonely boys. Do you have whites and are you interested in selling a couple of girls?

    I would love to raise canaries. I don't know if they are hard or not. Hubby will not let me have one though. Maybe someday. I have a cage full of zebra finches on the front porch and a pair of African Laughing Doves as well. Oh, almost forgot a pair of Diamond Doves too. I LOVE BIRDS!

    Are the white doves close by? Maybe I could contact them and if they are not too far away, maybe pick some up if they have girls for sale.
