    Ok I have to enter my baby - but she passed away last March. I am finally starting to get over it a little and am starting to think about adopting another.

    She's a U2 (Umbrella cockatoo) and her name was Ophelia. Such a sweetie!

    Pretty birds! I'll have to get a picture of my cockateil! She's a cutie. I used to have two, but one got really sick [​IMG] it was sad... My female was supposed to be my brother's but that didn't last long, and now she is a fun bird to have around. She lays eggs quite often... I'm thinking of cooking one up to see what it tastes like... [​IMG] gross. lol
