    New addition update

    I'm not sure if I mentioned it or not, but I had been looking for breeders of Fischer's Lovebirds in my area. I recently moved and wanted a new addition, but wasn't sure if I was ready (after Captain's death earlier this year). My SO spoke up and mentioned that he'd like a Fischer's and I thought that that would be a nice change (Lovebird, but not a PF like Captain). Anyway, I couldn't find any and we've talked it over and decided it may be not be the right bird for us right now. So we decided on another bird that meets all of our needs, plus will hopefully be a companion for Phoebe when we are working.

    I'm picking up his cage soon and hopefully him within the next week.

    Aussie + Kiwi + Phoebe

    Yup

    Mind you, I'm looking at other cities that I thing *might* be in NS (cities I know that are definitively on the East coast) looking for what else this mystery parrot could be..and again, it might not be on Kijiji...

    No one has gotten it so far.

    I would LOVE another Pi though. I saw a WC on Kijiji the other day and it was gone within hours!

    Same here!

    Going along side what Lori suggested, is it a Red-bellied? Or a Brown head parrot? Don't see too many of those on TF...
