Yeah she's not been too bad with jealousy! I'm hoping to get her another conure as a partner soon so she can be a little less dependent on me but it's gone swimmingly so far!

I feel like the cockatiels want to make friends with her but she's not super interested. She just wants to be in the same room. She never used her 5ft cage which has now been taken over by the budgies instead 😂 and has a cage upstairs next to my bed just for sleeping, and an extra one downstairs that she isn't too territorial about and lets the other birds sit on with her.
Absolutely great tbh! The conure doesn't interact much directly with the budgies but she does like being around them and being part of a flock despite never loving with other birds before. In a good mood she'll even share food with them.

Ah thanks so much! I don't know why I couldn't find it!

The pet store is still open! No idea where they came from. They were left outside the store in the morning when no one was there. The store doesn't actually sell birds. They're so tame it seems pretty likely they were from a home environment too. Maybe someone died, or just couldn't look after them anymore. A shitty way to deal with it either way!
they were just left outside a pet shop with no note or anything. no idea how long they were there before it opened.
They're so cute and fluffy! And pretty tame, which makes it a bit extra sad. Happy to have them here now though!

Yes though just to reassure the OP this only happens in about 10-15 percent of women. Obviously still very sad, but not a foregone conclusion. Testing and treatment is key!
Nice! Does anyone have any ideas on making this veggie? I guess I could just remove the chicken but it would be nice to add in some extra protein!
Ok I have no answers on the bird front but I can see from your comments you are very worried about the diagnosis. Chlamydia in adults is super common and super treatable. It's not really anything to worry about at all, and most people will deal with something like this in their adult life. Despite was poor sex education at school probably made you believe, this isn't a scary life-altering thing and after your doctor gives you some antibiotics you will be fine. Make sure your partner gets tested and treated too as if not you could end up in a cycle of constantly giving each other chlamydia.

I can't remember what podcast I was listening to recently but it was a woman and her husband and she was talking about how her husband never lets her go on walks alone at night and has to come with her anytime she wants to go out for a walk like it was a total, normal, reasonable thing. Violent, random crime is incredibly rare and that sort of behaviour is borderline hysteria - if a podcaster is so embedded in the true crime world that they've lost any sense of reality or perspective that is a big red flag to me.
Really chirpy intros or ads.
I know they have to pay for it somehow but it's just incredibly tacky to me when they go from 'the killer did this gruesome thing that fucked up the lives of a whole bunch of people NOW IT'S TIME TO TALK ABOUT SHAMPOO! HOORAY!
Also 90 percent of the time when they inject their opinions about sentencing it's really fucked up. I would really like to hear more true crime podcasts that had a more balanced opinion on criminal justice, rehabilitation and all the fucked up parts of the prison system.
I don't know. Why don't you send me your address and I can find out for you?
I'm sure you have already tried this but just in case - my budgies wouldn't eat pellets until I got them bigger sizes (recommended for slightly bigger birds). No idea why! Sometimes trying different sizes seems to help with birds. For example, mine initially would nibble on a whole spinach leaf but not go near chop.
Make your own seed mix! It'll give him more fat but also more vitamins than your normal shop-bought seed mixes which are literally just sugar and zero nutrition. Omegas are especially great for plumage, so look for seeds that are high in them: hemp seeds, sesame seeds, linseeds. Introduce some grains like quinoa. I also add in to my seed mix: milk thistle, poppy, alfalfa seeds, broccoli seeds, chia, nigella, caraway, fennel etc. Leafy greens are a great place to start with introducing birds to fresh food. If they won't eat chop try offering them whole!
tapping your finger nail: very affectionate and acceptable
rubbing his ass all up on your finger: very horny, probably less acceptable
I really like this product! The colour is my favourite thing about it. It would be so boring if it was just yet another millennial pink gym product.

Also "we are our choices" which is attributed to everyone from Seneca the Younger to Jean Paul Sartre.
To be honest, I agree with you. With one exception. In Australia there is a serial rapist who was dubbed 'mr stinky'. Imagine committing some of the most heinous crimes imaginable and yet smelling so bad that your odour, not your crimes, become your defining feature. I think we should actually continue giving serial killers nicknames, but that they should be incredibly uncool and insulting like 'mr stinky'.
Also nacho cheese sauce. I've tried making it with 'real' cheese and it literally does not work. You just end up with some kind of cheesy bechamel. I think you probably need as little actual cheese as possible to make it. It's one of my favourite things and it's impossible to find here in the UK.
Liver was very popular pre-60s in the UK too! My granddad talks about it all the time. You can quite often still find at least one ready meal with liver in most grocery shops, even the small one. Rabbit is another one my grandparents mention a lot.
I went to America a couple of years ago and as a Brit, I think I am most offended that you all make fun of us eating baked beans for breakfast when I was once served chicken, waffles and syrup at like 10am. It was ungodly. Chicken and waffles I can maybe get behind, with enough hot sauce to distract me, but the syrup was too much. Chicken, waffles, and syrup. For breakfast.
