Your favourite Aussie niece however is feeling a bit left out. Can we add PCL to the list or is she just too rare and obscure??
I am a terrible Auntie to Lilly! Of course I added her! She is rare and perfect and absolutely deserves her place

Re: Common Forum Acronyms/ Abbreviations

I know what you missed - this is vey obvious but budgie also is an acronym because the full name is Budgerigar
Also, next to 'too should be "cockie" because in Austalia this is more common used than 'too
Another obvious thing: 'keet=parakeet
And I'm not sure if "bourkie" for Bourke's parrots also can be as acronym


I forgot: mac-macaw

Added the other in as they would both have the same acronym. Thank you for the addition!
