So, hi...:)

I've lurked for a little while here, and decided to start posting.

First things first:
Is there a FAQ for this newsgroup? If so, where can I find it?

That said, a bit about me!

I'm female, 21, and am owned by six birds, three cats, a betta, a
hamster and a high yellow leopard gecko. I work for an ISP(internet
service provider) doing technical support.

I've owned birds...actually not that long...only about a year. In that
time I've gone from knowing squat about them, to having a nice, big,
bird care page and being a regular on many***atiel/budgie boards. :)

Let's meet the zoo, shall we?

The***atiels:
Rommel: 7 year old normal male, possibly split to pied. He was a pet
store rescue. In his previous home he'd been a breeder/pet, and when his
owner decided she wanted out of breeding and out of birds, she handed
him and his mate over to said pet shop. His mate, I'm told, was a lovely
pied girl and was sold almost right away due to the fact that she was
pretty AND already tame. His owner told the store that both birds were 5
years old, and that she'd had them since they were babies; he isnt'
banded though, so 7 years is really only a guess.
He sat there, alone, in a small cage, with one tattered toy for the next
two years.
I wasn't looking for a***atiel when I found him, I was looking for a
harlequin budgie...but he was insistent that I take him out. There was a
HUGE sign on his cage(which was stacked under numerous other cages) that
said "7 year old male***atiel! TAME!! $40!!". They let me take him
out, and he started giving me kisses...so that just sealed it, and he
came home with me.

Panzer: 8 month old cinnamon whiteface pied hen from a breeder in the
Minneapolis, MN area. She's a little ball of fire. She and Rommel live
together in a huge Midwest cage, and usually get along very
well...although she doesn't pick up on his "please preen my head" hints.
She's much more cuddly and willing to be actually handled for wing and
nail cippings than Rommel.
Both are very friendly birds, and know 'step up', 'down', 'no',
'enough', and a few little tricks.

The Budgies:
Bit: Bit is a yellow faced grey pied hen. She's about 8 or 9 months old.
She seems to have no interest in being tamed, and has no interest in
humans unless they're giving her food. She packs quite the bite, and
absolutely hates Rommel. She's indifferent to Panzer.

Byte: Byte is a yellow faced opaline grey male. He's much more laid back
and sociable than his mate. Byte is tame enough to come out and play,
but will only step up if he's already out of his cage. He does like to
have his head preened by me, and usually doesn't bite.

Zebra finches:
Micro is...I think...a chestnut flanked white female
Chip is, I'm told, a penguin pied male. He's also very loud.

Cats:
Kyle: 4 year old longhair male, adopted from a family who was moving and
couldn't take their pets. He's possibly the sweetest cat I've ever met.

Tigger: Hellbeast. No other word describes him. He's headstrong, and is
always getting into trouble, but we love him anyway. He's a 3 year old
tabby male.

Ashleigh: 14 year old grey female..she looks like a russian blue, but
she's not. She doesn't like male cats, so she's at quite a disadvantage
here. :)

The Hamster
We just call him "hamter". He's about 2 years old now, and is a
longhaired grey guy. Very sweet little fuzzball.

The Betta:
...is named Data. Pure crimson male. Gorgeous fishy.

The gecko:
His name is Leo, he's a new addition to the zoo, and is very very
friendly.

Most of my pets have pictures here:

And if you want to know more about me, my personal site is:
http://www.moonsgarden.com/

And my current pet project, my bird care site, is located at:
http://www.moonsgarden.com/;for those who are interested.

I should probably consider getting back to work at this point...;)

Welcome to the group! You'll find this is a very outspoken, caring bunch of
folks who genuinely love their 'tiels and wouldn't want life without them.

I must tell you -- I'm totally jealous of your menagerie. We have just one
'tiel (Siesta, a male pied) and Gabby, a miniature schnauzer (she's Siesta's
pet, but she's not really aware of that fact <g>) because of my boyfriend's
allergies. These are the only two animals that don't make him sneeze
continuously, and allergy remedies (shots, pills, you name it) have done him
no good at all. So, if I want to keep him (and I do), I've had to
drastically reduce my own menagerie and stick to these two impossibly
spoiled critters. I have been thinking of adding a hamster, however <g> ...

Best,
Joy
