SLIME RANCERS, Calif.
— Slimes ranches ranch in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains near the town of Slime has become the new home for a new family of parakeet.
A spokeswoman for the Parakeet Society of California said the family, who are from a neighboring ranch, were staying in the new house on Saturday after spending the previous week moving around the ranch.

They have had no problems with the animals and have been doing well, Ruggie said.
She said the new family is very excited to have the new residence and is looking forward to having more space.

There are now more than 1,000 parakeeters in the state.
