Re: Here come the babies :)

Yeah , I know what you mean, lolol. I would take another Too in a heartbeat if I could right now
Definitely get yourself a air purifier , they make all the difference.
Does going in the barn near all the hay and dust bother you ?
My Mother used to suffer like crazy but it nevr stopped her from coming to the barn to see her "other baby"
Thank goodness I have no animal allergies "yet". And I hope never to get any because I would have to wear a gas mask because I would never rehome my animals , nuf said

Re: Here come the babies :)

I am very allergic to all grass, including hay, yes. But just taking allergy pills helps me for the most part. I do take stronger ones during the spring, summer and fall. I first developed asthma when my ex husband brought home chickens. They were here about 1 day when I had my first ever asthma attack. So I am allergic to some birds. That was one of the reasons I chose a conure because they are pretty much dander free. I am also allergic to cats, and have a cat that is attached to me like glue. I can't even go to the bathroom without her coming along, and sometimes jumping into my lap, lol! But, allergy pills work for her, too.

No plans to rehome any critters. I did have to rehome the chickens, but even though I'm allergic to like the whole darn environment, I've never experienced anything as severe as that. I think I honestly might have died if they had stayed much longer. Don't worry, they all went to good homes with people I knew. I am a 4 on a scale of 0 to 4 on grass and weeds, and I think I'd have to say chickens are off the scale for me!

But, I don't think I could live with a 'Too. And yes, I'm getting a good air cleaner for Merlin. I'm actually sort of used to her now and not having as many problems, but just for my own health, I'll get it. I don't want to end up on oxygen in a few years or something as I do plan to keep her for as long as we are both still alive.

Re: Here come the babies :)

I'm glad you are looking in to the air purifier , I meant to get one for yourself first , and Merlin will benefit from it as well
My brother was allergic to the earth too when he was young.
They more or less told my parents he should be living inside a bubble , lolol. He is over 50 now and handles his allergies like you do. He does have bad asthma though, and goes for treatment every once in a while , but he had cats , has two dogs . he wouldnt want to live without a dog. If it was up to him and not his wife lolol , he wouldve had a couple of German Shepherds too.

Re: Here come the babies :)

Dang, when I was allergy tested I was allergic to 36 of the 42 things, lol! And that doesn't include food or medical allergies or allergies to things like latex or neoprene, lol! And yet I live on a farm, surrounded by grass and weeds. My cat sleeps on my chest all night. I'm not allergic to dogs or dust though.

I don't know if I still would have eventually develped asthma or not had we not gotten the chickens. I probably still would have as the others in my family who have it also developed it at around the same age as I did (30 or so).

I didn't even know I was allergic to cats until the allergy test, lol! I heard him say, "Cats, not dogs" and I asked, "I'm allergic to cats?" And he said, "Yes, you don't have one, do you?" I didn't want to say yes, I have one that sleeps on my face all night and there's 10 outside that people have abandoned, lol! But, when you are allergic to the whole freaking world you don't necessarily notice a specific one, lol!

Re: Here come the babies :)

Yep , being allergic to mother earth cannot be good for you .
I would have done the same thing being in your place , lololol.
I wouldnt have said I had a cat either , lolol. My cat , who i found of course , sleeps ontop of me too , lolol. Along with a sprinkling of Border Collies , lolol. I wouldnt have it any other way
I ( knocking on my skull ) havent come down with any allergies except penicillin. But it is scary that they can arise at any time in your life....my " Toos" are going bananas right now, swinging fro the rafters ( really ). I have been on this site way too long today , lolol. I normally dont have the urge to go on the computer until recently , I am grounded right now , ( legs bad ) so what else can I do , lolol. Now I will have to get myself a new computer so I can download (if that's the right term) pictures of my birds and it would be nice to have sound too , lolol.

Re: Here come the babies :)

Oh, I am, I've officially told everyone I know that since the babies have started hatching, that they can't be mad at me when I don't do anything with them for atleast the next 6 weeks because I don't want to leave the babies! Now, if the two pairs of parrotlets start laying, I REALLY won't have a social life
