We had a few confessions during January: Sal's hubby Jon has caved... it appears that an adorable little chubby kitten will be staying with them permanently! For now his name is "Fatty". And the other main confession! Battybirdie has taken in a little budgie boy named Tommy. Tommy has splayed legs, but hopefully will be better soon with Batty's excellent care. There was an unofficial confession as well… jasmineandme is looking forward to bringing home a young GCC named Cinder on the 14th! Bet she can't wait…
Scully has posted some hilarious pictures of the birdies with captions in the Funny Foto's & Video Clips section in the Lounge. Do you have any fun pictures to share? We'd love to see them. *disappears to dig through my own pictures*
There is a new Competition up! The Lovvey Dovveys Competition is for Valentines Day! No special rules, this is for fun, so everyone gets to vote (just don't vote for yourself!) and you can enter as many pictures as you want. We're looking for "Awwww!" so get busy! It will close on February 14th. Good luck!
Tasha posted some pictures of the last IRN baby from this season. Junior "G" is a credit to his owner, absolutely beautiful! He had 3 older siblings this season, so lucky Tasha!
Scully has shared the excitement going on in budgie Graham Green's household! His lovely Bride, Tiddles, has finally joined him in a lovely new house! The young couple was quite nervous about meeting each other but the wedding went off wonderfully, complete with Millet Flower arrangements and a best man. Here's wishing them a happy life together, and thank you Scully for sharing the pictures and story!
Lastly, it appears that the GCCs are taking over the site… Erik shared a very cute and funny series of pictures of "Chicken" completely asleep in his hand. That must be one tired conure! Scully's Biggles went to the other side with a VERY energetic bath! Some birds just like to be clean, I guess!
Well, that is about it for this month… enjoy the site! As always, feel free to ask any questions you may have and we'd love to hear any interesting, helpful or just plain funny tidbits you come across!
