Thanks!
And there are not loud!

So here the story goes;
You may remember my list of dream birds, if not--> Linnies was there.
And then life make me go to AA and read that one: Linnies for rehome
And I don't know why I checked that I have ONLY a bit over 60 miles driving there and contacted that person...
And next she sent me e-mail with pictures...
And the next thing I know I was in my car with 3 little funny and sooo cute Linnies...
3 is not a good number, so Jennifer (the owner of TNT Bird Toys will get Charlie, the not bonded one and the youngest)

So update with fids:
At that moment I have 10 feathered Monsters:

In the living room:

Lucky - 'zon - cage
Chico & Mickey - 'tiels - aviary
Mango & Sunny, Blueberry & Plum -'kits -aviary

In my(my, really? ) bedroom:

Charlie -lineolated temporary in separate cage waiting for Jen to come and take him(he was bullying the female linnie)

Venus & Mars - bonded linnies in the other cage

So far:

Linnies are quiet birds, and very comical. There is no way they can wake me up, they sleep upside down and learning to chew toys - I assume they didn't have toys in the previous home. They also learning how to live in a bit bigger cage they have had before and eat veggies and fruits and pellets.

I know I'm not absolutely sane. On the other hand I know I'm in good neighborhood here

Too funny! I don't know how you keep up with that flock, though! I already feel I don't have enough time for the 3 "monsters" we have!

I don't know where you find the time Margaret, but good for you! I can barely keep up with my two! They look very cute!

How are they outside the cage (how tame are they)?

No time for myself at all!! (sometimes it's better)

Linnies are absolutely not tamed, only Charlie came to me with his name. The bonded couple wasn't even named!!
When I hear those little Marsian like- noises, I gave them: Mars and Venus.

Can't wait for meeting Jennifer she has only large size parrots and ... 9 linnies- Charlie will be the 10th of them!

I've met Jennifer - she's a HOOT!

I never found Linnies to be very noisy - always a good thing Smile

Good luck with your Charlie transition - I'm sure he'll be just fine in Jennifer's hands Smile She'll even have to make him his own Motherlode! Those things are crazy!

I think with big flocks, as long as you can have certain ones out together, it's much more manageable.

Linnies are together in aviary with 'tiels and budgies. They are watching other birds and learning from them to chew toys - they didn't show much interest about toys before.
Jenn was right saying, that Lineolated parakeets may be perfect small birds: quiet, very social and flock birds, sleeping together.

Venus felt in love in ... Mango(the budgie), and I have triangle now and Mars loves to run and hide in places when I can't reach him, i.e.: under refrigerator.

Venus(after half year with us) is making (as for a linnie) "loud" contact call when I'm coming from work. That call is so funny, I have to record it one day.

The toy which would last for budgie 1 week, for linnie will be enough for 1 year Wink
Linnies hate to fly, they prefer to walk all the way around aviary, than fly. Good that they have feathers so I know they are really birds! They are really funny birds!
