I'm new here but his forum looks very familiar to me, possibly under a different name? I haven't been on-line for a while. Major computer crash and lost all my favorites, just thought I'd look for another parrot forum.

Talking Re: New Members

Hi,
What a great site

I am new to the bird thing, but have wanted one for a long time. For Mother's Day I brought home a tiny baby Love Bird from a pet store. Now you'd think, having dogs and knowing what awful places those little pet shops can be with their puppy mill dogs etc, I would have thought twice, but nope, DUH! Anyways...I brought the little guy home, he was a little thin and very scraggly looking, but otherwise healthy, clear eyes, nose and vent, he ate like a champ and wasn't tame so I was working on that with him and we were getting there. One Tuesday I woke him up as usual and he just fell over and died right there...damn, I loved that little bird. I was heart broken.

So, my husband, being the wonderful guy he is, found a breeder of parrotlets, (he knew I had scrubbed the cage within an inch of it's life) brought me home a lovely little blue guy that is a joy. He was handraised, already knows "up" and loves to play and be by us on his play gym or someplace on our person and loves to chatter. I also have a coupla standard poodles and an eight year old son who is the light of my life.
I am looking forward to reading the forums and talking about birds.

Re: New Members

Welcome to the forums, sorry to hear about your first bird, but perhaps it is something to learn from; do you know the cause of death? Hopefully not to bring up a sensitive topic, but while he may have been unhealthy from the beginning there also a number of very dangerous things for birds in the average household.

The number one thing would be anything in the air, birds respiratory systems are very different, and much more sensitive than ours. The contributing factors are easy to overlook: teflon cookware, air fresheners, aerosols, cleaning agents, smoke, or any number of other household odors can be deadly for birds.

Often the dangers in some of these are overstated, but the importance of knowing about all of them cannot be overstated.

Welcome again, look around, and feel free to ask any questions.

Re: New Members

I don't know, for sure, what the cause was. The only thing I can think of was maybe he was too young to be sold....At twelve weeks, Max is fully feathered and looks great. The Love Bird, Pooper, was not. I don't have anything that I use in the house that would have hurt him...I don't use teflon pans, I threw them out when I found out it was a health hazard to humans. I have done a bunch of reading and found nothing that could explain it. Maybe just one of those things? Thanks for the welcome, I know I can ask questions and tell stories about Max here and get good advice. Again this site is great.

Re: New Members

Hi I am new my name is Angela but I go by Katyonka. I have been a bird person since 1996.

I have 8 birds right now but once we move we are going to make me a bird room so I can have MORE!. I love my birds they are all in the living room with me right now so it can get a little crazy at times.

I also have 3 cats, 3 geckos and 1 frong

Then there are the humans in my jungle my loving husband, and my two children one 16 year old daughter and one 12 year old son.

Hope to meet other bird lovers here.

Re: New Members

Hello All
I am new to the forum and would like to introduce myself and the flock.
I am Linda from Pennsylvania and am slave to the following:
Bane/ Sun Conure
Baby and Booger/ parrotlets
Binky and Bonkers/ lovebirds
Bobbie/Half moon conure
Bella/ Cinnamon Green Cheek
Patty/ Patagonian conure
Gabby/ B&G macaw
Noah/ CAG
Joe/ Blue Front amazon
Actually right now hubby is slave to the kids except for Bane. I have had to move in with my dad to care for him as mom passed in Feb and she was his caregiver. But I had to keep at least one bird with me for sanitys sake. I look forward to making new friends on here.

Re: New Members

Welcome Foxxfire,

It had been pretty quiet on these forums for a while. It's good to see a few people joining us this past week.
