At Home Medical Transcriptionists
I have been trying to talk (or should I say begging) the hubby into adding birds to our family for at least 6 years. He finally gave in. Over the past several years I have been researching CAGs, Quakers and Too's as well as many, many others. We started with a Budgie, then soon after the Quaker, my hubby completely fell in love with these guys and decided the kids have a bird, the wife has a bird, I want one. We were originally going to wait a year before adding a CAG to the family but after more research and many discussions with the lady at the Parrot store and a few other bird families I know, we decided to go for it now so the Quaker and CAG have a better chance of being more friendly with each other since they are both young, I know it may just be a dream, but they are doing pretty good so far. Tippi's only problem is he wants Chicken to know that no matter how big Chicken is, Tippi will always be the big bird in this house, lol. Yoshi the budgie is a sweet little guy, his only down is that he only wants to be held when he wants to be held. Tippi said his first word at 3 months old. Now at 5 months he says Hi, Hello, Good boy, Gimme Kisses "muah", and the wolf whistle. We are working on the quaker song, so far he has picked up Quaker and then he will say "green and stout, good boy" lol. I wish I could catch him on video but as soon as any camera comes out, he becomes a mute little boy, lol. Tippi is a DNA male. My hubby doesn't want to find out what Chicken is so he is just gonna be a boy and Yoshi is a boy according to the color of his cere. We are so in love with our new babies and look forward to long and happy lives with these guys! Unless I win the lottery and can get a bigger house, I think we are done adding to the family. If I had my way and the space, we would have a house full of fids! If I were to add anymore now, we would have to sit on the floor rather than couches to add, lol, hmmmmm that's an idea!
I have been a stay at home mom for pretty much my whole adult life!! Even before I had kids of my own, I ran a home daycare, after 10 years of having other peoples kids around 6-7 days a week and not enough time for my own, I took a great medical transcription course and now work pretty much my own days and hours, and can spend as much (or little, lol) time with my kids and husband and now the our new additions, as I want.
What other type of pets do you own?
