PostSubject: Howdy from Texas!   Mon Dec 19, 2011 2:39 am

Hi everybody! My name is Sheila and I'm from Texas. 4 kids, three of whom are grown and out of the house and a 14 year old daughter at home. I have three grandboys that range in age from 8 to 1. I have two birds, Rio, a DNA'd female pineapple green cheek conure who is 22 months and Kai, a DNA'd male cinnamon sided green cheek who is 9 months old. I also have 4 dogs, a cat, a horse and a mule (oh and can't forget the hubby!) I am a police officer (15 year veteran) and I live in a town with a population of 400. I'm a country girl! I am excited to be a member here because non-bird people never understand! LOL

I concur that non-bird people just give you the Crazy eyes when you mention anything avian related *sigh*

I do hope you mean Avian Avenue and not Alcoholics Anonymous!!!!

Welcome Sheila! I'm surprised at how many folks have both horses and birds. I'm finding the birds have stolen my heart, which was a real surprise after 50 years of being THE horse person. I still have a horse, but he is fully leased out by a couple of young women.

There are a bunch of GCC owners on here. Looking forward to seeing pictures of your fids!
