The birds are gorgeous. Yes my avatar is my 27 almost 28 year old CAGn Pepper. He is a card. I didn't realize until recently how many members have birds.

I was lucky, I inherited him from a family that had him for 26 years and didn't have time to spend with him anymore. His health was poor, his disposition worse. Now he is a different healthy bird. He has grown feathers back, even flight feathers. He is amazing.

I rescued my LeeAnn(Cockatiel) in the middle of winter 2006. I found her in a wet box with little food. She had no feathers and had a little crack in the beak. By last christmas she was fully back to normal. And she had bird communications as her cage is next to our parakeets.

That is a sweet story. I bet they chatter back and forth.

Yeah I woke up to go to school and almost tripped on the box itself. She was suffering from malnutrition. And she did not like anyone but me. I would hold her in my lap and someone would walk by and she would hiss at them and then she would get on my shoulder and make clicking noises. I had to wing her off parakeet food when I actually got some cocaktiel food- and a cage. She slept in cardboard box with sheets and a mesh screen over it so she couldnt get out, and she didnt mind.
