I have had a red factor canary for the last 6 years and he is healthy and apparently happy as he sings daily and in the evening if the light is on. People that visit and hear him sing cannot believe his song and the loudness and duration. I am asked to go into another room if on the phone, or have difficulty watching TV and hearing while he is singing. I have owned many canaries in the past but the performance of this guy is without parallel. He would be considered a Master by a breeder if in a room full of young learning how to sing. Thanks for the information I received by reading your site and good luck in the future.

Iv got an eastern rosella parrot and shes lovely ( at times when I treat her to new equipment ). I got her given to me about 6 - 7 weeks ago and from day 1 she sat on my shoulder but did tend to bit but she wasnt being aggresive untill it came to me or anyone else putting hands in cage!!! I thought she would always be alittle aggresive but each day she is gaining more trust in me :) today she let me stroke her belly and head and she loved it!!!! Does anyone know how long their life spam is as my bird ( Rainbow ) is 7 years old??

    Sounds like a wonderful bird, and they are so pretty. The average lifespan of the Eastern Rosella's is said to be around 15 years, so you should have a wonderful pet for a long time.

    They live from 20-30 years.

I have had a snow capped Pionus for over 20 years. His name was 'Guido' as he looked like he was a short little pizza man. After 10 years, 'he' laid two eggs. Name changed to 'Gee'. Absolutely hates everyone but me. She sits on my shoulder and squeaks and makes noises that she only does there, on my shoulder. Gentle as a puppy with me, but squeals in my ear if I don't pay her enough attention. I love this bird. Pionus are very affectionate to only one or a couple of people. Gee will nip me if I get too close to anyone else, even my wife. That is her warning to me to be careful with these persons!

I've been in the avian field now for just about 30yrs. I've have experience in dealing with both wild & exotic pet species. And have owned many various exotics over the years. Your Alex sounds no different than my Keiko who is an IRN or Indian Ringneck basically the same bird just Alex's are bigger.

Asiatics or the Psittacula species are NOT easy parrots to own they are by far NOT a good 'first bird' for an inexperienced owner. These would consist of the following birds; The Ring-necked, Alexandrine, Newton, Slaty-headed, Intermediate, Long-tailed, Blossom-headed, Seychelles, Moustached, emerald-collared, Derbyan, Plum-headed, Mauritius, Blyth's, & very rare Malabar.

They do not like to be handled or stroked very often which can be an immediate turn off to many first time owners of these birds. And while they may look like Conures in some ways physically speaking they are a completely different bird altogether. To bond with an Asiatic requires LOTS of patience, socializing, and consistent training. Plainly put you give these birds an inch they'll take a mile so boundaries and proper discipline need to be put in place right away if one is not to have a holy terror on there hands. I say this because in my personal experience dealing with various species of this order they can be quite stubborn. And if they are not PROPERLY socialized on a DAILY basis will quickly revert back to a 'wild state'than any other parrot species i've worked with in 30yrs.

Now having said all that, if one still feels compelled to give these beautiful and highly intelligent birds a try then the rewards are amazing. Despite not being 'hands on' birds in terms of being touched they will most certainly win you over with there vocal capabilities. Bar none there is no other bird there size that can speak with the clarity and word association these birds can. Yes Quaker (Monk) parrots speak quite well but there diction is still garbled compared to say an IRN (Indian Ringneck).

These birds come from royalty and were often sought after by ancient Greeks & Romans due to their beauty but more importantly their vocal ability. They are by far a much more sophisticated species than Quaker parrots ever could be.

To see an Asiatic in full adult plumage is like looking at a picture in a field guide. There streamlined plumage is quite striking with not one single feather out of place. So if you have what it takes and can meet all the requirements stated above in owing one of these gorgeous animals than by all means go for it. But take heed, these birds may not full fill your 'personal desire' of what a pet bird should be like. But as another commenter posted on here accepting your bird for how it is instead of what you want it to be. And seeing it from that perspective should be what's cherished and appreciated most of all. And this applies to ALL bird species one may own.

Hi, I've had my nanday bird for around a year. She has always been happy and playful. Not that long ago she started acting weird. She has been avoiding me. She has two cages, one for sleep and one for day time. She has been spending a lot of time in her 'bedroom'. She also bit me and she really has never bitten me before. Every time I try to spend time with her she just seems so sad. I don't know what's wrong with her. Can you please help me?

    How old is she? My first thought is maybe she is sexually maturing and is going into a breeding cycle. Some birds seem to completely change personalities when they are going through that. My other thought is that maybe she is lonely. Are you gone a lot of the day? It's possible she is just craving more attention.

After the baby yellow naped hatches and you remove the baby about 3-4 weeks after to hand feed, will the pair mate again and lay some more eggs? Or do I have to wait until the next breeding season? I feed a pellets diet. Can I continue feeding the pellets diet to the parents after the baby hatches or do I have to feed dry extract food powder?

    They might lay more eggs if it is still warm out and feels like breeding season. But most likely they will not and will only have a single clutch during this breeding season. If the pellet diet has sufficient nutrients you can continue feeding it. You may want to add in some fresh fruits and vegetables to make sure and to give them some variety!
