    Another I'm new thread!

    Hello everyone,

    The classic line (I'm new here) *looks completely lost, but likes the furnishings around this joint*

    I'm 21years old and from the United Kingdom, always had an absolute fascination for birds. I was told I used to stand in random fields and just watch the sky as a toddler (although I shouldn't be sharing this embarrassing story with a bunch of strangers I'm sure).

    I work as a web designer with a secondary job as a snowboard instructor which is currently on hold due to injury. I have 3 black headed caiques in a flight outside, 1 umbrella cockatoo (Taz) about 18 months old and expecting a baby blue and gold 2nd-3rd weeks of September this year, so all very exciting.

    I apologize in advance for any typos, Taz is currently screaming his head off in the other room, despite being out for hours, but that's another story.

    So this is me, and I shall not bore you any longer, just wanted to say hi to everyone! 2cay2 recommended you guys so big hi to CAY!

    Hi Jane, nice to meet you.

    Well some years ago I used to breed budgies, big aviary about 60 birds. Due to moving I then had to give this hobby up.

    I've owned a black headed caique as a pet bird for 11 years. Up until last year, she reached sexual maturity and decided she no longer wanted the human contact despite being playing everyday. After much effort I was having to reach for the band-aids every time she was out, so decided to find her a mate.

    I am starting up breeding again this time with caiques after many months of research. Looking for another cockbird currently as have 2 hens and 1 cock.

    I purchased my lovely U2 September last year, he is a wonderful chap, don't know what I would do without him now but has a big eating disorder outlined in my other thread due to a breeder only interested in the cash-register.

    The decision to buy a blue and gold was firstly always loved these birds and secondly another pet bird around the house eating correctly may help Taz with his problem. He's scared of all foods unless he see's you eating it. So thats the plan for the time being.

    All in all i've grown up with birds around me the entire time.

    I work from home so these guys get near 6-7 hours a day of dedicated attention. spoilt lot really.

    Hi and welcome! I would love to see pics of your Caiques! I have 2 of my own and I'm hoping to breed them as well. Have yours been breeding then? I have heard they work well in a flock of 3 like you have set up.

    Welcome - I'm new here too. Only been here a couple of weeks.
    I'm the happy Momma to a 5 week old Lutino girl. "Auberry" is wonderful and we are bonding terrifically. She's sitting on my shoulder right now doing beak crunchies so I guess she's happy. I hope those are beak crunchies and not shirt chewing!!!
    This is a very informative board so share your knowledge too.
    Welcome again to our world.

    Hi there and welcome to TF!

    You've got a lovely sounding flock there, and a B&G coming? WOW! I've always loved macaws, but a bit too big for me to feel comfortable handling in my life right now. Always fascinated by others that own them though.

    Look forward to hearing more about all of your flock!
