    Feathers can change color somewhat with molts as they age. Also a disruption to the nutrition of a bird during the time when feathers are being formed can cause color change and can also affect the quality of feathers. With a corrected diet, it will molt back to its original coloration. Beyond malnutition they can also have a liver disease and certain viruses can also cause abnormal feathers; however, this is not a common occurrence. If you think it is more than a molt or a nutritional issue, then you will want to take the bird to a veterinarian for a checkup.

My parakeet is very boring if I give him twigs will he make own nest? Note this is a boy parakeet. Also would it be a hoot if iIgave him a nesting box and put twigs in that for HIM?

    Twigs would definitely help with boredom, as would a nest box. You can also provide him with other toys, and things like a ladder and a swing would help give him things to keep him occupied.

Parakeets are so beautiful! I have a boy and a girl, Tweety and Taz.
They always make me laugh! They are great pets and I would definatly get 1,000 more, but my dad says two is enough.

I have been given a single peach-faced Lovebird, the people who had her didnt want the bird, the cage wa very dirty and they were afraid of her... All is going well, she has been in my home for almost 3 weeks, I now can reach in cage without being niped, I put a heating pad in bottom of cage due to the fact she seem in trama, she still wont eat any fruit, but she now has  food with dried fruit and seeds and fresh water as well as kleen cage, I named her Bella she seems to like me and the name..She is much happier now...This am she lay an egg....wow, wasnt expecting this, it cracked...My question is how can I tell how old she is and how long do they live...also I am going to get a larger cage for her next month because she seems to be adjusting well in my home...

    What a great story, and a wonderful little bird! The average life span of lovebirds is between 10-12 years, though there are reports of some living 17, and even up to 25 years. Age is something you can't determine with parrots unfortunately. Maybe the people you got her from can give you a clue, they will at least know how long they had her, even if they don't know how old she was when they got her.

It was noted that yes Flame babies don't always look like the one pictured. I would just like to confirm this as a breeder. They can look like what is pictured, but can also look similar to a Harlequin, other than the color on the chest and lighter on the back. In addition I would like to note that the picture of the Quatro shown is hit or miss as well. Somethings the babies look totally different from one clutch to another. I can say this for a fact being we submitted the picture. In my opinion that is the cool thing about the Hybrids - You really never get one to look exactly the same as the other. This coincides with the personalities of all the birds - They are as individual as each of us. Thanks Tom

Owned by a Military - 2008-11-19
We have a 4 year old Military Macaw. She is very outgoing, clowny and silly. She loves making me laugh. When I start laughing, she'll do a whispery laugh. True to their reputation, Militaries can very much be nippy, but ours was raised with boundaries and she's very respectful with her beak. They are not a bird for everyone. Her call is more shrill than our Blue and Gold's, so be prepared for that. She's an okay talker. We're still working on reinforcing her existing vocabulary.

I happen to LOVE the Military. The few I have known are very active and need lots of toys to keep that beak out of trouble! They also like to hang upsidedown in their cages like bats. They are a riot. We love our girl.

    My military is a Boliviana Military. He is going to be nine years old in December. I received him from a good friend of mine and have known him since he was young. He does have a bit of a temper at times and can be quite loud, but I love him just the same. He goes with me out in public. No tethering is needed. He even joins me on bike rides. He has bitten but only me. Once to the point stitches were required. But still he is my bird and I will never part with him. He loves his toys, his perches and his outdoor play area (again no tethering necessary). The only thing he does not play with yet is his swing. Maybe in time.

    Sounds like you're on the right track... offering affection and having a lot of patience. These birds have a very good, and long, memory. It's awesome that it can be taken out, and it eats with you, that's a great start. It may or may not become any friendlier, only time will tell.
