My birds run my house
City / State / Country Location
Wanganui, New Zealand
Making jewellery, designing t-shirts, walking my dog
I have a very full house. We have seven parrots, two rats, a dog and a cat. I have a rainbow lorikeet 'Little Sexy', a galah 'Demon', a sun conure 'Phoenix', two maroon-bellied conures 'Crowley and Scarlette DeVille' and two malabar parrots 'Gryphon and Lillith'. They all live inside in cages but I let them out of their cages most of the time. Little Sexy is my mummy's boy, he was a lost bird and we couldn't find the owner so he stayed with me. When I first got him you couldn't go near him, he'd attack you, but I spoiled him and didn't push him and now he cuddles and kisses and always wants to be on me which is great. He's also picked up quite a lot of words. Demon is absolute chaos, he destroys everything (my laptop, cellphones, remotes, shoes, six computer mice, assorted cords, i could go on forever). As often as he can he sneaks up and bites our toes really hard or pulls out our hair, he thinks this is hilarious. Even though he's a lot of work he's so sweet and funny it's worth it. Phoenix is just new, he's a baby and is a complete delight, he just wants cuddles all day. The malabars are recent additions too. Gryphon is only a few months old, he always wants to be on my head but has a bit of a biting problem I'm working on. Lillith came from an aviary where she was picked on so she's still very timid and her feathers are all broken but she's getting more friendly and her feathers are much better already. Crowley and Scarlette aren't very friendly, Scarlette still runs away from me and Crowley is a complete psychopath. He viciously attacks the other parrots and humans, even the dogs scared of him. They've been with me for a while but they were four when I got them so I'm hoping in a year or so I might be able to pat them. They are coming round though, they call out to me when I get up and sometimes Crowley will fly over to sit on our shoulders for a while. Usually though he'll be fine for a few minutes then suddenly sink his beak into your neck and fly off. He hasn't actually bitten me for a few months tho, although he does still do his staunch act and bite towards me. He still bites everyone else tho so I think he's warming to me. We're buliding an small avery for them at the moment so hopefully they'll be happier in there, although they stay in or on their cage mostly so can't hate it too much. The rats are called Lucian and Zeke, they were my daughters but she left them with me when she moved out but I didn't mind coz they're lovely little dudes. My dog Grievous is a bulldog/stafforshire bull terrier cross and he's a big cuddly old teddybear, he's fine with the parrots, they walk all over him and my cat Banshee is cool with them too. Her and Little Sexy get on especially well.
When I first joined birdboard I had Little Sexy and his best mate Pagan the Sun Conure. It breaks my heart every day but Pagan has passed on. She was the brightest ray of sunshine ever was and made my every day a happy one because she was there being her cuddly chaotic self. Love you and miss you always Pagan R.I.P
Well this has been a giant manuscript of an introduction, hope I didn't bore you and hope to talk with everyone soon
I live in a smallish city in New Zealand, I hate the city but love NZ so try to travel as much as possible (pet permitting). I like to go for long drives finding new places to walk my dog and veiwing the beautiful countryside we have here. I work in retail but also have my own label of jewellery and t-shirts that i design and make. Mostly I just love hanging with my animals but never turn down a good party.
What other type of pets do you own?
