Other Birds section

Would love it if there were an "Other Birds" section to cover birds that are not "Parrots" like Zebra finches, Chicken, Doves etc and are also not a "Non feathered" pet.

Re: Other Birds section

its a valid question. However, I would argue there’s already so many specialized subforums that the current catchall for those not currently listed would suffice. Much more would begin to become redundant.

Re: Other Birds section

This is the parrot forum so I understand "others" like Cardinal - this section is for other parrots (I know there are threads about non-parrot birds). The existent would be rename as "other parrots" and add subforum "other birds" This is only my suggestion
Btw name of section "budgies/parakeets" I think have double meaning - a lot of people name parakeets only budgies but "parakeets" can be also named lots of long tailed small/medium size parrots. For example kakarikis, grass parrots and rosellas can be in "others" or "budgies/parakeets" depending on how someone understand word "parakeet"

Re: Other Birds section

And for a general catch-all: NonFeathered Pets

The vast number of Parrots limits a Forum for each and every species. When a specific species has a following of size, it can be added. But there is also a need for there to be an active following to avoid that Forum sitting inactive.

Re: Other Birds section

I think the Others forum is already inclusive of any species of birds without a specific forum (parrots or not). I have posted there about my Softbills many times.

Yes that is precisely what I mean.

May be not immediately but at a later date. The thought occurred to me while posting my latest thread on Chickens as therapy animals for Senior citizens. I realised that there is no exclusive section for Other Feathered pets besides Parrots

Re: Other Birds section

I think “Off Topic” would be a perfect place to post about chickens as therapy animals for senior citizens. As Terry mentioned the forum for “Others” is also a good option for birds that aren’t technically parrots.

Re: Other Birds section

Well, I changed my mind with every post I read!
I reckon I appreciate both sides.
Uh-oh, now I'm in favor of a new category again, if only because I want to name it "Other Fathered Friends".
