Guest Post // Jess and Her Birds.

Hi there, thank you to Danielle for allowing me to feature on her fantastic blog! I'm going to be showing off some of my beloved furbabies. 

But first about me, I'm 29 years old, study full time (animal studies) and am also studying business management and English. My love of animals blossomed when I moved in with my partner of 9 years. We will not be having children so animals are kind of my replacement for that :) 
I have 3 cats, four guinea pigs, one rabbit and parrots! We have 7 aviaries, and we have aviary bred parrots, doves and different species of quail. I think from last count we have approx 60 birds.

I'll be showing off my fids (feathered kids) in this post today but to meet more of my animals I post segments called my animal kingdom on my blog which is

Here is my first parrot named Tara, she is a cinnamon green cheek conure named Tara and we hand raised her from 3 weeks old as her own parents rejected her from the nest, we had to feed her every 4 hours until she got old enough to feed for herself which took awhile!

Next I'm introducing you to Sarah our rainbow lorikeet parrot, she's a darling and we adopted her from 10 weeks of age because our wildlife shelter manager gave her to us. We do work placement at the shelter for our studies. 

Jimmy is a green Quaker parrot and he is approx 6 years old, he hates all male humans and only loves his females. I have to watch that he doesn't attack and cause injury but with me he's a sweet wee green guy.

We also breed budgies and this is a tiny baby at just a couple of weeks old, he's just starting to feather up.

Sparkles is a pet diamond dove and he lives inside with Jimmy, Sarah and Tara for company :)

My latest addition to our flock is Sprite, he's a peach face love bird but sadly his mother bit off his toes however she's still feeding and caring for him. I'm hoping he will adapt to his life living with me, Jimmy, Sarah, Tara, and Sparkles.

Thank you so much for checking out my first guest post! I look forward to doing it again.
