My name is Richard and after a year of negotiating with my wife (she really wasn't that tough), we have 3 birds in our back yard. We are within city limits and therefore can only have up to 4 birds - by permit. We were given young adults, already laying and they have layed everyday since the day after they moved in. They are a delightful addition to our family and after some resistance to getting them, I now hear my wife talking to them as she looks out the kitchen window. Our girlz are Lucy, Ethel and Mrs Brown. We are all delighted to meet you!!
