    Yearling
    We have quite a few bird lovers here I see!

    I have rose breasted Gala cockatoo who is 7 this year. I also am a ABGA breeder and used to have about 100 head of registered Boer goats, but the drought was too much the past couple of years and now I just have 7.

    I also have three large dogs, a chicken mansion full of chickens, 4 horses of course, two Brown Chinese geese, 1 mallard duck and a house rabbit.

    My hubby just built my so called chicken mansion earlier this spring - and I'm so proud of it. It is so nice, that I think my mother-n-law could stay in it when she visits!

    It seems that we are "animal people" and not just "horse people!"

    We would love to get hair sheep for the dinner table and wool sheep for one of my hobbies (spinning and weaving), but we don't have the acreage to support that. We have offers on three different neighborhood properties--but none are looking to sell at this point.

    Oooooooooops, forgot the "part time" cockatiel.

    I grew up with a green winged macaw. I love birds.. DH, not so much. He can't STAND the cockatiel (must control the noise level around him) .. ha!

    How is it owning a flying squirrel!? Never known anyone to do that!

    I would love to get a macaw, they are unique animals. Unfortunately I don't think the wife will let me overrun us anymore with animals.

    Luckily my Amazon only screams in English. He never uses his native bird language. He usually screams, "help," "hellooo," or "La" from one of his favorite songs: Do-Re-Mi!

    The parakeets scream and chatter all their waking hours, but their volume is substantially lower than the Amazon's.

    That's hilarious! I'd love to see that happen in person!

    Owning a flying squirrel, pretty tricky, huh?

    A friend's husband was cutting a tree down (part of his job) and it had a nest in it.. one baby dead, one still alive. It still had the umbilical attached.

    Took it to my friend who raised her and had her for a year and a half. She was talking about releasing her, but after researching them, it's not a good idea.

    So we agreed to take her. She lives in DD15's room in a big round wire cage with a nest box and tree branches. Every night at dusk/dark (they are nocturnal) she gets free run of DD15's room and they two of them "play" ..

    She is FAST and comical ... and clean (except for the seed scattering).

    DD15 is also a photographer, so I'll post pics in a minute..

    And, yes, it is legal in Texas to own a flying squirrel.

    He's quite the character. Glad y'all took him in.
