@  divegirl : (21 October 2014 - 11:32 AM) Have a read in here, where some of our birds have told they're story. Maybe add your own one :)
@  divegirl : (21 October 2014 - 11:32 AM) That's wonderful to read :) Would love to hear more about him and see some pictures maybe :)
@  Birdygirl : (21 October 2014 - 11:31 AM) My name is Billyboy. I'm a 17 month old Indian Lutino Ring Neck.
@  Birdygirl : (21 October 2014 - 11:23 AM) Hi there, This is a story about Billyboy and me.
I rescued him from Malta and brought him home to the UK on the 5th June 2014. Its the first time I have ever owned a bird, so I did lots of research on IRN's. It's been a love affair ever since. He actually adopted me whilst I used to go back and forth to Malta visiting a friend who originally owned him. They didn't get on. We have had the bites and tantrums, but with patience and calmness he has got over them. I didn't react to the bites even though a couple drew blood. I wore garden gloves in the end and he gave up. Now we don't use them. We have a really strong bond and he is very loving towards me. He even let's me cuddle and kiss him. Quite an achievement! So anyone having a bit of trouble with their IRN, keep at it. :0)
