1. What is your first name and location?
Matt - Elgin, South Carolina

2. What do you do for a living?
Cad Design, Web Design, and many other computer related things.

3. What are your (other!) hobbies?
Boating, Fishing, Computers, and spending time with all my animals.

4. Share something interesting about you.
Im kinda boring lol

5. What is your biggest passion within the subject of birds/bird keeping?
People that do not care about animals should be punished just like if they mistreated a kid or some other person. To me its just like having a kid. Animals depend on you to keep food and water out and also keep them up to date at the doctor. I adopted a cat that was 7 years old and about two weeks after I had her she got an ulcer in her eye. It cost about $500 to get her better and we had to doctor her 3-4 times a day. When I tell some people they ask why I would spend that much money on an animal.... Because when you get an animal you take on the responsibility to care for them. To many people go out and get animals because they are cute and then a week later they don't want them anymore.

6. What species are your birds, and how did they get their names?
I have a Quaker. I still don't have a name :( They person that had the bird called it rainyday but i really don't like that name.... I guess her son named him and I know its bad to change a name but I really don't think they did much with this bird to begin with.

7. What is the favorite toy for your flock?
I have only had him a few days and dont have to much for him yet but he has played with the mirror and the bells.

8. What is your flock's favorite food?
Clyde and Jade love potatoes, Clyde especially. They all like pumpkin seeds. Freddie gets so excited over pumpkin seeds that he squawks even while he's eating it. public/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif

9. Share a favorite bird story.
Dont have one yet ;)

10. How long have you been keeping birds?
This is my first real bird.

11. What sparked your interest in them?
I have always loved birds. My mother in law was a breeder for years so I have been around them most of my life.
