    Oh dear!

    I just made a mistake! I sometimes look at Darwins breeders website...you know...just to check...and she has suns sitting on eggs tight now! I keep thinking of getting Darwin a baby brother...must stop it!!!!!

    Please everybody tell me I am nuts...don't have the room...and how horrible it would be...I need to hear it.

    As long as you can afford it, I would say go for it. I have a house full of screamers, Sugar Mama the Jenday, Sparks/Lola the sun, and Lil Miss Jewels the gcc and if I could add to my flock I would, but for now I am pretty content at being the mommy of 3.
    Having fids is definitely a blessing sorry I wasn't against you expanding your flock and thanks for the comment about my avatar.

    Hmmm..I know you have mentioned this a few times about possibly getting another Sun, I say go for it. If you have the room, money, time why not?? I wasn't very helpful was I? Do you think Darwin would get along with another bird?

    Re: Oh dear!

    Barb .... you must secretly want another : ) .... or you wouldn't be peeking!

    Sort of like potato chips - you just can't have one!! However ... if now is just not the right time, your breeder will always have another clutch - so you can wait this one out ... and maybe do it with the next clutch.

    OR .. you can make a list of pro's and con's and make a decision with this clutch.

    : ) just think - it's easier to cook for 2 than for one!

    Re: Oh dear!

    Well, you all are right! But not very helpful in getting the idea out of my head. I have been peeking at her website now and then...wondering...but I honestly didn't think I would have the flood of excitement feeling I did when I saw she had eggs.

    I told Hugo (the s/o), who I will say has been the one to mention bird #2 way more than me, but he thinks we should wait. We have the money and time, but space is an issue since we are in a 2-bedroom apartment. So, I guess that is really my only con at the moment. But I do agree with him that the two cages in the kitchen would be too much.

    Plus, I do wonder how Darwin would fair...he is SUCH a mommas bird. He attacks stuffed animals with vengeance, which has me a tad worried too.

    Barb, I do the EXACT same thing! As a matter of fact, the breeder that I got Mango from has two suns available and weaned at this moment! Buuut, I don't have room or time for another sun. I will support you because I feel the exact same way.... DON'T DO IT! STAY AWAY FROM THE SUNS! Avoid temptation.

    Thanks guys...*sigh*

    I have such mixed emotions. If Hugo had been excited (as I thought he might be) I would have been all over it, even with the lack of room! Now I am confuzled...

    That quote made me laugh. Incidentally, I didn't want another bird (right away) before I got Joey. My other two were getting along fine and I thought adding someone in the mix was just looking for trouble. Then this one day I looked at classifieds. And there he was. Of course, one week later I couldn't take it anymore and got him (after loads and loads of thinking and my bf pushing for us to get him). But yeah, people told me that. That I secretly wanted one since I looked at those classified websites at that precise moment

    Re: Oh dear!

    Barb ... I will be more supportive

    Just say NO for now - you can always get another one when you have more space.

    That leaves the dream open, and it's a nice dream to have for later down the road!

    I agree with some. Say No for now. There is always a few months or even a couple years down the road.

    MBS has struck. Uh Oh. I've been looking myself, but my mom keeps telling me no more for now. W/e. She doesn't have to hear them, I don't even live at home. It's so hard to resist.
    Yours Truely, Emily
