I read your post to the young boy about avoiding birds. Well done. I had a cocktail for 12 years. I loved him a lot but he was noisy and messy. He enjoyed coping the microwave chime. After hearing 500 times in the day, it wasn't cute. Birds are harder than dogs and fish. But they love being close - on your shoulder. Which for me was a joy.

I love your goldfish. I'm just setting setting up a planted 125g tank for them. So I'll send a link when I get it posted. What type is the littlest one? So cute
Thank you. I just love all animals. Of the seven birds, I only purchased two straight up. Two showed up in my back yard, two were "rescues", but no I do not run a rescue.One was in deplorable conditions, the other was as close to death as I have ever seen any animal. The aracari{toucan} was sent to me by a family in ND who could not keep him due to their son's allergies. The bunny was also left behind by someone in a tiny cage, in the hot sun. Most of my birds with exception to the canary, are out mostly all day. I hate keeping them in cages, hence the big cages and room to play and fly.I look forward to your goldy tank! The littlest one is a butterfly. I actually just found a new home for him the other day. I was having some issues with him due to the flow. He was a wiggler, not a swimmer. It was just too much for him which was making him hide to get away from it. He is much happier in his new home in a 50 gal with a few friends and less flow. The way they have bred some goldfish for looks is to their detriment. Unlike the streamlined comets, shebunkins, etc, these guys are certainly compromised by their shape.

Sure do, thanks. Yes, Pico is a boy. They are sexually dimorphic, which means you can tell them apart visually. Females have a brown head, where Pico's is black. And females have blunter shorter beaks.

Well, found some, sort of.
Two dogs have the laundry room, warm seasons they share it with the bird so he can watch the world.
Mutt dog lives in the house because the bulldog is plainly evil.
The LGD lives with the pigs, sheep and horses on 4 acres.
Mare shares her half of the barn with the sheep.
Pony, gelding, shares his half of the barn with hay storage. Occasionally he gets let out of his pasture to race around with the mare.
Pigs just got a new, huge pasture.
Cat lives in the house at night, outside with the dogs during the day. She doesn't leave the dogyard. I expanded the dog yard this spring as well, so the three have a much larger play area.
Koi and goldfish have a 3k pond.
Chickens have a 10x11 coop that is never locked since they have a 200x200ft yard with hot wire to protect them. They can leave the yard to the pasture because the LGD is also there to protect them. In there lives our rabbits in their pasture pens.
.....I think that's everyone....

Toucans are seriously a lot of fun. I volunteer at a bird welfare that has one, and he is awesome. Great personality.
