I cant wait until I can get birds again. When I was still living with my parents (before I got married) we had:
1 moluccan cockatoo~ Peaches (she came to us named)
1 umbrella cockatoo~ Elvis (also came named)
1 Scarlet Macaw~ Salsa (we got her as an egg
3 black masked lovebirds ~ Pocahauntas, Cheech, and Chong
3 Peachfaced lovebirds~ Cherry and the other twos names were changed often because they were my little sisters
2 parakeets (mine) Simba (green)and Nala(blue)
2 Lutino lovebirds ~ Sunny and I cant remember the other ones name
and 1 mixed lovebird~ Rascle
We had all of them at once in 3 bedroom marine corps base housing (tiny) and my little sister developed horrible allergies to the dust mites that live in birds feathers. And with that many birds... there are a lot of feathers (especially in a tiny house) so we had to find homes for the large ones and she was able to deal with the small ones. It was a very difficult time.
I want to get a hyacinth macaw. My husband has promised me one when we have our own house and more room
My hubby is in the navy so getting one right now would just not be smart because we'd be moving every 3 years and a big move would be stressful on the bird plus then we'd have to find a place that would allow us to have the bird KWIM? So I have to wait. Some day tho......
