I went into a pet shop today just to look around and a GORGEOUS normal male tiel won my heart over. He was an adult in an aviary with another male, but he sat next to the wire and i scratched his head for 10 mins. Meanwhile i was whistling at his cage mate and it was whistling back at me, but the scratchy one was adorable. If it weren't for parents he would've come home with me for sure. :p

awww he sounds adorable, don't you just hate that going into a store falling in love and can't bring them home :( I try not to look at the birds when I go in because I want to bring them all home :D

Yeah, i haven't been into a pet shop with birds for ages, so it hasn't been a problem. :p Maybe i should keep avoiding them. He was just so healthy and friendly!

In other news they had the type of cage i have but powder coated, and for $195 which is a great price for a local cage. I might keep that in mind and save up some money. ;)

Am I the only one that has absolutely no self control? I think there's only been 2 days when I've visited and haven't brought an animal home :(. Tomorrow I might go to the store and see if they have any pellets...and maybe some more budgies.

I get that feeling when ever I go into a petshop, I always have to go to the bird section and look them. I have already come home with two budgies that I wasn't supposed too! :eek:

That tiel sounded adorable, if that was me, he would be coming straight home with me!

My parents were (are) always against me getting birds .They've threatened to ground me ,take away my computer stuff like that if I get more and one on occasion even release them o_O. But they are push overs :) they've never done anything . The only thing they have not moved on is me building a pond but I'll have it before christmas you wait and see :).

I wish my parents were like that!!! I think if it were just dad, we'd have all sorts of pets but mum hates animals.

I know that Bea, growing up I had a few pets but not as many as I would have liked, my mom hated animals as well and my dad wasn't really big on them either, don't know where my love of animals comes from because no one in my family really has any or really likes them.

I have an aunt who always has animals, other that her though my family isn't very animal-mad. :p
