    Newbie saying hello

    Thank you for all that info. I have been looking a little more into things abd am now being drawn to Senegal parrots ? Apparntly they are greta for people in apartments as they dont screech às muh as some can and even though i dont live in an apartment i suppose they would be quiet in the evening for my youngest daughter. They are smaller parrots so will need lessspace alrhough i will be more edged to a larger cage ! Apparantly they are more cuddly tame but can also be a little independant so will play alone. It is not an easy choice to just go and get a parrot, phew
  2. HELLO I am new to this site and would just like to introduce myself. My name is Leanne and I am almost 31 and from Bury, Lancashire. I have a partner named Steven. 2 daughters, Bethany aged 14 and Madison aged 13 months. I have a small cross breed dog called Lola and a horse called Lanky (don't ask). I live in my own home, can drive, just . I work as a dinner time cover nursery nurse, 3 hours every week day, I also go to university one evening a week where I am studying my BA Hons in Education and Special Educational Needs. My partner is in the army as an engineer but he is leaving in April. We do not have a parrot yet as we are looking for one still. I have joined here to get a little more information on things so I know I am 100% in choosing the right bird. I have had a senegal for a few months which was not mine, he was my friends but was in the process of moving home so I got the pleasure of looking after him while she moved and got straight. This was quite a few years ago and I knew then I wanted a parrot but never had the funds to provide a good enough home (vet bills etc if anything was needed). Now we do, I would love one to join our family. If anyone has ANY advice for me It would be very much appreciated and it will be taken on board. The breeds I have been looking at so far are Indian Ringnecks although the tails are rather long so maybe not the best with a 13 month old. Amazons seem to be where I am looking more as they seem to be sturdy birds with less tail than the Ringnecks and not as big a bird as the African Greys. Also Senegals, again these seem to be sturdy birds with not as much tails and are not too big of a bird. African Grey's I feel may be a bit too big for my home so I am looking more along the 3 above. So, enough of me and my blabbing on. Hello to all and thank you for having me on your site Leanne xxx
