I found him on the roadside and he is with us from a month and he only has guava and barley. What must we feed him and he is not friendly and we are worried he is afraid. Tell us what to give him and what we have to do to make him play with us.

    Hi my plum eats bread dipped in tea or even garevi. He eats corn, strawberries, mangoes, apples...almost all types of fruits. You can try giving them these. :)

I have a pair of plum head parakeets. They both are very friendly with me because I am the only one to entertain them. They are very jolly and sometimes become a shouting monkey to get my attention. I love them. I have recently gotten a female parakeet for my mino (male parakeet). She in a few days has adjusted amazingly. But the problem here is that I don't know when they will breed? I want to become aunti of their kids. :) They play with each other and have an open environment, they go from one room to another. I have set some flowers and tree stumps to make my place look like a forest. But when will they breed? I am really worried. Please help me. Want to become aunti hira..

    Hello no need to worry these are also like other birds and you are petting them. All you need is to provide them nesting boxes according to ther size and they get mature for mating after 3 years. Female will start spending time in a nestbox, that is the sign that she is ready to breed. And will allow male for sex. Remove all messes you have created in your house. They need their mood, their time and privacy. All you need is to provide them time.

I got my maximillians pionus ( Webster ) when he was 1 yr. old....My husband had just passed away.  I lived with my Daughter and family.  None of them paid any attention to him,  He is 19 yrs. and I've had him 18 yrs.  His first owner was a man and he hand fed him, then at 6 months old a lady brought him to the pet store where I worked part time.  I fell in love with him the first time I heard him say Hi! Sweetheart... that did it for me.  My husband always called me Sweetheart until he passed away.  Problem:  He doesn't like anyone but me and he doesn't want anyone near me especially a guy.  I tried socializing him but with none of the family trying to be friends with him he doesn't like anybody.  Is it too late to help him like other people?  I have a schnauzer and a cat.  They all get along fine together.

I have read the comment by Ronald, saying that the cross of Carduellis cuculata and the canary does not lead to fertile hybrids and that the insertion of the siskin's red factor to obtain the redfactor canary is a myth.Unfortunately Ronald, I can assure you that I, myself, have already produced lots of fertile F1s from that mating and definitely it is not a myth. If you do not believe it, just get a male venezuelan siskin, cross it with a canary and check the fertility of some male offsprings. The females are not fertyle, but, a good percentage of the males are. Try it, before getting to the final conclusion. Venceslau Barbosa da Silva

I am just starting to learn about the canary. I have always wanted a singing canary and my favourite colour is orange so to have an orange singing canary I would be all in my glory. I was told that my canary is not a red factor so I had no hope. A friend of mine gave me some red granulated stuff that he feeds his canary to keep it orange, I tried it and mine is turning colour. What is this stuff and where can I buy it?

    Hi, you can find it at any pet store, is is not dangerous for your birds, only problem is that if you stop to supply it as your bird is not a mosaic or a red factor, your bird will get back to his normal color.

Howdy, 15 1/2 years ago on Thanksgiving, a small bird flew into our house from the back sliding door. She stopped at the counter, where we had refreshments. She landed on a plate of cheese and crackers. She started talking, but it sounded like she was talking some asian language. We put up ads at pet stores and veterinary offices with no response. She has been identified from a bird pet store as a female and as a Meyer's Parrot. She talks English now and tells us at 9:00 pm every night 'go nite nite'. She also says 'hello' whenever the phone rings. We have a small chihuahua also, named Jenny. Our parrot, Paulie, says 'Jennie' over and over all day long. I have seen photos of Meyer's parrots and they all have some yellow on them. Paulie is gray with a very pretty green on her underneath. She won't let me near her but she loves my husband, Any suggestions on how we can get her to like me or at least not want to tear my hand off when I get close to her cage?
