Budgie Owners - Who Are You?

Recommended Posts

We have so many new members that have joined and we would love for you to get to know us and us know you a little better. I wrote up a standard "Who are You" questionaire feel free to copy and paste, add to it and you only have to answer what you feel comfortable answering.


First me:


Name: Elly


Pets: Merlin the budgie, 3 cats, 2 dogs (1 is a rescued puppymill parent), fish, hermit crabs and of course my kids (are they pets or not :hap:)


Favorite Color: depends on what we are talking about...in a car I love black but paint on my walls I love earth tones.


Astrological Sign: Virgo


Age: over 30 plus group :D


Weakness: Tend to be too critical of others at times (part of being a Virgo)


Strength: I hope --- helping others


Favorite Animal: well I love them all but I just LOVE dogs


Favorite T.V. Show: well since I love dogs I love the Dog Whisper I enjoy watching him the most severe issues and I love his dog Daddy the pit bull.


Live: in the USA


How long have been a BBC member:...:): I think almost 3 years when I got my first budgie Pretty in Sept of 2005. He helped me heal after my dad passed away in August, I think I had a need to love something new and now I am stuck on budgies. Who would think such a little creature could give so much love.


Anything else?....I am typically a very quiet, shy person, but with my friends I am very out going, I love honestly even if it hurts :(, I have enjoyed the many friendships that I have made on the forum.
