I wasn't asking about your previous bird experience because of
what you ask. Questions are how we all learn.
I was curious as to what birds you have had or have now as it's
always interesting to see what attracts people to certain
species of birds. You do have quite an assortment. Wish I
lived where I could have chickens and fowl.
I also appreciate the compliment and your kind words.
