My first bird was a quaker, I LOVED him more than life itself and a tragic accident took him from me way toooooo early
Then over the years I had 2 cockatiels, a senegal, a CAG, and an alexandrine. Unfortunately, I had to rehome them all This is probably the first time Ive really talked about it. My 3 sons were small (youngest was a small baby) and my birds were so jealous. I was in a severe depression and my life just seemed to be spinning out of control and it was happening so fast, I didnt know what to do. My birds were not getting the attention they needed and it was showing. Thankfully a very good friend of mine who is also a bird lover took them under her wing and gave them what I couldnt at the time. It breaks my heart but I had to do what was right for everybody, my birds, my family and myself.
I really hope you guys dont judge me for it. I did what I thought I had to do at the time and I still have alot of guilt.
But here I am. 6 years later and I am ready to open my heart to a bird again. I have a very good friend who runs a huge parrot toy/supplies store. She knows everything I have gone through and she only keeps 3 birds. Her Red Bellies and a 3 yr old TAG. She knows Ive been looking for a baby, and in contact with a few local breeders when she sent me an email telling me to call her, so I did and she blew me away. Her life is getting extremly busy, she has a cottage that she lives in all Summer and she is only home in the day time to run her business. Nyka, her TAG just isnt getting the attention and she wanted to know if I was interested in her. She didnt even tell her hubby that she was thinking about rehoming her, she knows deep down, its best for Nyka and she wants me to be her new owner.
So next Monday, Nyka baby will be home with me. She is an amazing bird and I am so overly joyed to be given this opportunity and I know it's right, I know with everything in me that I am ready and Im going to do things right this time and not get in over my head.
I thank you all who took the time to read this, it was hard for me to write it since I feel like a failure. I am excited to get to know all of you and learn, its been a few years so I definately need a refresher course!
