    I have been going through posts and have been amazed by the number of people who are owned by parrots.

    We are owned by several personal and several Sanctuary birds we have seen many parrots come through our door as we do Sanctuary and Rescue work.

    So I would like to see some of your babies. I will start off with the ones who own us...

    Our Flock

    Kady she was our very first bird (lovebird)

    I don't have any birds of my own at this point, but I do work at a friend's sanctuary, and I feel like many of the birds are mine! (Sometimes I wish I could provide homes for some of them, but at this point of my life it would just not work out)

    Here's some pictures of them. I have hundreds!

    This is Dennis and Emma. Emma is on the right and Dennis on the left. both were extremely sweet when we first got them in. Emma is still a sweetheart, but Dennis has tried to attack me several times. He got a hold of my finger a few months ago and bit me HARD! I think he has a lot of mental issues, as he is also quite the plucker.

    [​IMG]

    This is Snowy. She is a bare eye cockatoo and such a sweety!

    [​IMG]

    This is Reggie. He took a liking to me and won't really go to anyone else. He's a real cuddle bug, but quite a pig!

    [​IMG]

    This is Smoochy. he came to us after his owner passed away. He was a biter but we have gotten him to the point where you can stick your fingers in his mouth and he'll give you kisses all day! One of my favorites at the sanctuary.

    This is my absolute favorite bird, Big Bird. He's such a ham for the camera, and he loves to be cuddled all day long. We've become very attached to each other and he'll do things for me that he will not do for anyone else. I can do just about anything with him and he doesn't even think about biting. He's about 18 yrs old.

    How could you resist such a face?

    This is Jazz, who's idea of playing is biting!

    This is Peaches, our little devil princess.

    Chickerdoodle What beautiful babies I am in love with the rosie (Reggie) he is on our list of would love to have the guy that had Doran is getting out of breeding and we are hoping to get his pair in they are so well socialized for being breeders. And he also has a pair of well socialized and loving Goffins. He always says oh they are mean yet we are always able to love on them. We just love those too's.

    reallesmons we love the budgies they are just so special thier voices are amazing if you can decipher what they are saying what kind of finches do you have we have not ventured into them yet but we are very interested in starting a sanctuary flight for them. I really love thier sweet dispositions and quiet nature.


    Katrinag what kind of birds have you had my first was a small budgie that we got when I was a youngin (way way long ago) he started my love for birds.

    Budgies are great little birds. I have had several in the past that learned so many words and phrases we could have whole conversations with them. Finches are very easy to care for. They don't crave attention and would rather be left alone unlike parrots. Just feed and water daily (they love daily baths in their water cup) and clean their cage. They would multiply like rabbits if you let them. I have a pair of societys, a pair of zebras, and an Orange Cheeked Waxbill. These are my first ones so I didn't want to try the fancy types until I learned more about their care. My societys are now setting on at least 5 eggs. The babies will go to the nursing home where my MIL stays.

    This is the societies, Chocolate (male) and Taffy (female) with a hatch

    Your birds are adorable! African Grey's are so intriguing. I would never own one....I would be too afraid it would be smarter than me!!

    I have had cockatiels and parakeets. That's why I think I will be fine raising a couple of ducks. I am already used to the mess a bird can make [​IMG]
