I've been called "bird lady" before, mostly by kids. Can't remember anytime where "crazy" has been put before those two words to my face, but I imagine it most likely might have happened in a conversation between two people, since I do know a few of my friends/acquaintances do think owning parrots is something someone crazy would do.

When people think that with 6 I have a lot....I just tell them I know people with twice to five times as many and that shuts them up... ;)

My brother swears I'm going to turn into the Crazy Pet Lady. But I only have a cat, a bunny, and Franklin! He's convinced I'm at risk of ending up with three dogs, five cats, more rabbits, a flock of birds, and maybe a lizard too! :lol:

There's already a Bird Guy at the park near my house. One of my co-workers told me they saw him walking around with a blue and gold macaw on his shoulder! Apparently he didn't have a harness or anything on the bird though, which is really just stupid, in a big park with plenty of trees and wind.

If he's already calling you crazy, and those are the only pets you have...lol...

Well then! I'm certifiable! :lol: :thumbsup:
