9 Replies and 1118 Views Just wanted to say hi from a new member  1118  9 Started by  angelev Hi everyone. My name is Emma and I have just joined this group as I am passionate about parrots. I currently own 2 very cheeky but gorgeous green cheek conures and a budgie. I have always kept birds as in my opinion they are fantastic companions. I would dearly love to foster another bird and would love an African grey, Amazon or another conure. I think Birdline do a fantastic job and hope I can help out in fostering another parrot or parrots!
