Lovely Linnie Aviary

Our beautiful, sweet Cremino Lineolated Parakeet came from  Lovely Linnie Aviary. Susan Kruger is a bird breeder located in Springfield, Oregon. Her charming aviary and flight are, indeed, very lovely.

The entrance to her delightfully cozy aviary.
Surrounded by forest. Notice the skylight in the roof.
Susan invites you to look inside.

Aviary at one end with workspace and viewing area
at opposite end where we're standing.
Birds are through this door.
Opposite end of room with workspace, some smaller cages
and a comfy chair for peacefully enjoying the birds.
Lineolated Parakeets enjoying millet.

Sliding windows let in a cool breeze on warm days.

Tools for maintaining a clean aviary.

View of the skylight from inside flight.
A side window could be a hazard for flying birds,
but a skylight requires them to fly upward, so less dangerous.

Yummy greens grow in hanging pot.

They can't all be Linnies. She has cute owl finches too,
and also a pair of Rosy Bourkes, not pictured.

A few of her Lovely Linnies.

Lots of things to climb and play on.

Friendly Linnies enjoy visits.

More come to look at us as we look at them.

Looking upward at the flight from inside the work area.

A useful work space.

This pretty pair live in the house with Susan and her family.

Linnie poster provides color descriptions.

Pretty handy, attractive storage.

Hi, I'm new to this site and was hoping you could answer some of my questions.
I have a one and a half year old male rosy and his singing is wonderful. I do not have any other birds so i wanted to get him a mate for companionship. I was looking at a opaline bourke for him, will they still be able to breed even though they are different geneus? I do not want him to stop singing if he has a mate. Will he?
Also I'm building a small indoor avairy and wanted a little variety, so what type of birds get along with my rosy?
Thank you

A Bourke Parakeet of any color can breed with another Bourke. So, if you have a Rosy Bourke and buy a Rosy Opaline Bourke, they can breed as long as one is male and one is female (and they like each other). A Normal Bourke (wild brown color) can also breed with a Rosy Bourke. That's where the Rosy originated from. Bourkes only mate with other Bourkes, unlike some of the Neophema varieties who can cross with another (like Splendids & Turqs, for instance). Any bird smaller than a Bourke should get along with them in an aviary. Budgies and larger birds may intimidate your Bourke; but Bourkes are usually gentle with birds of another feather. Smile.
