I have a sweet female white fronted amazon. She was born in 1999. My yellow napped parrot has bitten her several times, and as a result she has lost part of her toe and has an injury to another on her left foot. She gets around very well, although does sometime lose her balance. I love this little bird so much, but I think that for her protection it might be best to find a good home for her. She is very social with other birds, but needs to stay with birds her size. I don't want to see her become a full time breeder, but she would enjoy having a mate, even if its another female like herself. I have a beautiful cage for her that I bought two years ago. I love this bird very much, but I am worried that my nape will handicap her or kill her one day. I am willing to speak with a serious person, and I am located in Philadelphia, Pa

    I have a male white fronted Amazon and am interested in finding a companion for him since I work during the day. I cannot afford to buy a companion bird and can only promise a good home. I live in central Florida.

I have a peach-faced lovebird that is over 20 years old. He's doing pretty well for an old guy -- he can't fly anymore but still like to be held and snuggled. Just wanted to share that lovebirds can indeed live to be over 20.

    This post is a couple of years after yours, and hope your lovebird is doing well for an old guy. I too have one around 17, and noticed that he is not flying quite as strong as the old days. May be his age as well! We have him checked regularly as well. Gave me comfort in your email. Thank you!

    I have a 19 year old peach face...CHICHEN. He loves attention & seems quite content to sleep most of the time. He loves sleeping on me. No longer flys...so I take him along with me as often as I can.

My husband and I adopted a 4 year old Severe from a pet store 1 1/2 years ago. We were told it's a girl but she says,"Hi Bubba" all the time. We renamed her Bella and she can talk very well but she refuses to say Bella. I initially thought we made a big mistake and never in a million years did I think we would own a Macaw. She would run to the back of the cage away from me and wanted nothing to do with us. She was very nippy and un- predictable. She is now the love of my life and the sunshine of my day. We also have an African Cape that I adore and raised from age 4 months but the personality and affection of a Severe tops it all. She went from running scared to never leaving me alone. She will march through the house looking for us with her sister (our Cape named Gabby) behind her. I can now wrap my arm around her to hug and kiss her and she loves it and just melts. She throws herself on her back while laying in my arms to play. It took about 9 months to gain her trust by taking it a step at a time and now she loves all of us. We were told she was raised by a male so she favored my husband at first but now she loves my daughter and I'm her favorite. Love and time made our Bella the love of my life and our lives.

    Can you tell me some of the things to help her turn around and gain our trust. Mine prefers men and will talk when men are around, but i am the only one who handles her. She will eventuslly come out of thr cage sometimes after coaxing her for a long time with treats. What else I can do? Once she gets out she loves going out to the pond and walking around the yard with me holding her. Every time is like starting over.

    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
