Richelle & Little Grey
My first bird was Charlie (turquoise and
yellow).  After about a year, I got him  a
girlfriend, Naughty Dottie.  After awhile, I
found Rainbow, a male who is green, blue,
yellow.  He seemed to take to Naughty Dottie,
so I got another female, Little Grey, for

As a hobby, I raise parakeets and zebra finches.  I have always had animals as an integral part of my life.  In the 1980's, my family
lived on a small farm in Noti, Oregon (11 miles outside of Eugene, Oregon).  We had 3 horses, 8 English Setters, 2 Shelties, 20
chickens, 1 rooster, 8 goats, 2 cats, 1 Yellow Cheeked Amazon Parrot, 2 Cockatiels, and 2 parakeets, and one miniature French
Poodle.  I have also raised several litters of Great Danes.  I especially loved raising the Nubian and Alpine goats.  But most of all,
one of my life long dreams was to own a silver grey Arabian horse.  I realized that dream.  I bought Echo when he was a
2-year-old.  I ground broke him, and put him under saddle.  We had many happy days on the farm with all the critters, and my
beautiful daughter, Allyson.  Now I just raise the birds.
