Why didn't you name them after the twins, Matt and Mark?

It would have just been too confusing when talking about them on here...besides...they are not twins...they just look the same...the whole ten of them in the shop looked the same Birds cant be twins because they each develope within a separate egg

You need to get a Victorian-style birdcage. Either an antique or a reproduction. Here are a few cool ones (the middle one is a church):







By the way, it is pronounced "Zee-bra"

We pronounce it ZEB-RA

Now I'll tell you why I dont want those cages...its a matter of practicality...these birds need entertaining, this means hanging things from the roof of the cage to drop down by one of the perch...its hard to do that with circular or domed roofed cages...Jens new cage is a dome...and I'm having trouble getting in his toys for him

Am I the only one that finds it a little bit creepy that Dave names all his animals (and some plants) after MMA fighters or people involved with MMA?

Most of the plants have died now I'm good with Veg and herbs...but I just cant keep plants/flowers alive...Leonards leaves fell off...Levon the allocasia got rootrot...and Pena...well he died because I think he got scorched by the steam from my iron...I had him on the table near where I iron my work clothes...and his leaves changed a funny colour and started drooping...

I dont know what happened to Urijah the Rubber plant...I have a feeling I actually gave him away to my sister
