I remember you. I'm up to 14 parakeets had 15 but one just passed away. We also just got a cockatiel who is 1 1/2 years old and says pretty bird whistles and is hand trained. In fact would rather sit on my shoulder all day than be in his cage. Some of the parakeets are English budgies. We have built quite a few cages for the parakeet the last one is 6ft by 2ft by 3ft inside measurements its on legs and wheels so is a little over 5ft tall. Also built 3 nesting cages but none nesting yet and I'm not pushing the issue. If they nest they nest but I don't care if they don't just wanted to be safe and not find eggs on bottom of cage.
Anyway great to see you back. I guess I don't post as often as I use to either have been pretty busy.
