I now have 2 more birds which I had to take on short notice. That makes 7!!
Yikes, I'm having to get used to that many. My mother is no longer able to care for her boys, and although I would never have gotten 2 more birds right now, I just couldn't rehome them. I couldn't do that to my mom.
**Disclaimer - I have to point out that generally speaking, it is never advisable to keep different species together in the same cage. These are two bonded friends of similar species both known to be gentle, and it just happens to work with these two individuals.
Pinky - Bourke's parakeet (rosy mutation). He's about the same size visually as an English Budgie.
Patches - Princess of Wales parakeet. He's a little bigger than a cockatiel.
Patches talks surprisingly well. I have a cute video of him talking to Pinky, but it takes a while to show up in Photobucket after uploading. I'll post it when it becomes available.
I got them a double flight cage just like Mink and Chip has.
Just for fun, here is the rest of my flock
