18 Replies and 1450 Views Hi all just joined  1450  18 Started by  Jacquie I live in wells, somerset. Had a cockatiel for 28yrs and sadly died of old age last year. He spent most of his life sat on his cage or wandering around the room, he was quite a character. We would love to give a loving home to an African Grey, it would need to be ok with dogs as we have 3, all good natured and used to other animals. Membership is next on my list.
