Hai everyone!

My name’s Emma, and I’ve raised budgies since I was approximately eight years old (being seventeen now). I currently own four budgies; a nine-year-old named Albey (named for his colours; he is green and yellow, which became ‘lime and butter’ which in turn became ‘LB’, which transformed into ‘Albey’. He was my first budgie, and the only one of my original three alive today,) an approximately 1-year-old named Mini (we had a partner for her, ‘Houdini’, who recently passed away due to illness. Hence the name, ‘Mini’, after the real Houdini’s wife, Wilhelmina,) Pingu (who is named after the penguin as he is as white as the snow they live on, being an albino) and Ptera (named because I love dinosaurs, so I used ‘pterodactyl’ as the basis for her name. She’s also very skittish and a pain in the backside at times, so ‘terror’ suits her well.) Pingu and Ptera are brother and sister and are my most recent additions, bought two weeks ago at the age of 8 weeks. I am currently ordering a pineapple conure, as I adore birds. I am, in general, an animal person; I currently ‘own’ a cat, my four birds, and I have the conure and an Australian Kelpie puppy on the way (she is currently 4 weeks old and absolutely beautiful). I’m hoping to begin breeding birds at some stage, but at the moment I’m likely going to focus on hand making bird toys, at least until Mini and Ptera are old enough to make a suitable pair. I also adore music 0 if I’m not listening to it, I’m singing to myself or playing an instrument of sorts (whether it be guitar, bass or keyboard), or writing a new song. Of course, the birds love this – Mini and Albey always flirt and cuddle when I play nursery rhymes for them, but I think Albey is a little past his time for flirting and cuddling! I will probably pop some photos up tomorrow of my kiddies, as I’m on the wrong computer for that now x)

 

I hope to learn a great deal from the other members of this website and finally meet people with similar interests to me! I hope you all have a wonderful day/night c:
