Friendly little 18 year old girl.

As you can see, she has a collar on to stop her mutilating her right wing, which she has done in the past.

In fact he's as wild as they come, but seems quite happy with the other birds.

Update Dec 07 - Earlier in the year we managed to find a new home for Cracker where he is doing well and gets his own way.


Henry (etta !) - 12/06 - 18 years old and has started laying eggs.

Her unfortunate owner was another victim of the dust the birds produce

Update Dec 07 - Still likes to sit on that swing, but has made Lucy her special friend.

Squeeky- 29/07/06 Was sold as a tame bird to a couple who soon found out she wasn't. We call her Squeeky because, well, she squeeks !

Update Dec 07 - Every time I go in the aviary she is the first one to come and say hello. Always sits with Perla and Nellie.

Oscar - 16/06/06

Sadly Oscar died in December from what the vet thinks was a brain tumor. Although he was only boarding with us while his owners were away, he was a friendly little chap and we miss him.

MEEKO - 13/06/06 Meeko was found last year in Derbyshire after obviously escaping from somewhere. He has a numbered split ring on his leg, so if you think he might be your bird, let us know the ring number !

Update Nov 06 - STILL doesnt have a tail, but lets it grow a little longer each time ! Likes to go out in the car with me and sits on my knee.

Update Dec 07 - A big change in Jester this year, she still has no tail of course but now I am the only person she will let handle or even touch her, and she will actually run after other people to bite them !.. Just part of her maturing into an adult bird.

LUCY - 21/01/06 Lucys owners found it difficult to give her the attention she needed due to a new addition to their human family !

Update 07 - Lucy has found a friend in Jasmine and sit preening and feeding each other.

GEORGE - 30/11/05 Georges owner found that he has to spend more time away at work, so asked us to give George a home before he got lonely. He's just finished helping Val eat some chips !

Update Nov 06 - Although George likes talking to us and will tolerate us handling him, he prefers Captain and is often seen acting like a huge cuckoo while Captain feeds him.
