Glad to be here

Hi Everyone!

I would like to introduce myself and my feathered friends to all of you.

I'm Jennifer and I share my home with two Parrotlets (Kiwi & Mango) They are both almost a year old, blue and sister clutch-mates.

Chester, he is an Indian Ringneck, his age is still yet to be determined as a recent adoptee. He's a Lutino Lacewing from what I gather and what brings me here, but we'll get on to that later.

I also share my home with 2 Pugs and 3 very elder cats.

I look forward to meeting all of you parrot enthusiasts and chatting more about them.



Jennifer

Welcome Jennifer we love to see pictures here! I bet the blue Parrotlet sisters are cuties. Do they sit close touching each other while resting on a perch? The lacewing IRN's are gorgeous!

Re: Glad to be here

Thanks for the warm welcome! I will post some pictures for you to enjoy in the next couple of days. I'm away from my computer that they are all stored on.

"The girls" as I call them (Kiwi & Mango) do sit up close on their perches together. I adopted them as a pair about 6 months ago. I was told that I would have to separate them as they got older and sure they have squabbles but they love each other and I love that!

Chester, my IRN, has been ill since I adopted him 2 months ago. Now with a new vet and diagnosis, we are working on that. I'll be posting more about all of them but especially him as that's how I found this forum.

I am truly happy to have found other people who share my passion!!

Jennifer

Re: Glad to be here

I love when little birds sit close touching each other resting it's the cutest thing to see. I would think since they're bonded already it shouldn't change upon maturity. I hope not. I'm hoping the same thing for my younger two.

Best wishes for Chester too. I hope the new vet can make things better

Hello Jennifer, welcome to the Forum! So glad you joined us. The Girls sound adorable, looking forward to seeing their photos. I'm sorry Chester is ill, I hope he recovers quickly and completely.

Re: Glad to be here

My two little blueberries and big banana pics will be coming soon. That sounds weird, doesn't it?

It's funny the terms of endearment we come up with isn't it?

Re: Glad to be here

Welcome Jennifer! They all sound adorable and I'm sure a delight to be around.

I know what you mean about the terms of endearment. Our cat has only a little nub for a tail (part maine coon, part manx) so we call him Mr. Stumpy Butt sometimes, or Waggle Butt, whichever comes out first lol. But he's a momma's boy and I love him. Our two beardies, which we thought were both boys (Lrrr Ruler of Planet Omicron Persei 8 and Ed Bighead), we called the boys. Then Ed turned up to be a girl and we still call her Ed Bighead and I can't stop calling them the boys. She's probably going to develop a complex about it lol.

Re: Glad to be here

Okay, here are a couple of pictures. This is Kiwi & Mango (Mango on the left, Kiwi on the right)



And this is Chester, this is his first cage. He has a new one now since I hated the first one. And lucky for him it's much larger.
