I do have a cherry headed conure as well and I got him as a gift 30 years ago and the personalities they have are amazing. My pal is named Charlie the bird. But at times he will tell you he is Chuck or sometimes Charles, we have no idea where those names came from. But will only respond when you agree with him. He also calls the cat or dogs over with the promise of a peanut only to be rewarded with a nip and a laugh.

We have a pin tailed whydah Male in our garden. He is extremely aggressive towards all the other garden and wild birds. We had such a lot of birds in the garden they have all disappeared since his arrival at the end of December 2013, he chases them all away, what can we do to stop him chasing all the birds away? He is such a nuisance, I actually would love to see the last of him.

I got a Cherry Head when he was a few months old. Now he's 18 months, very social and has a vocab of about 45 words. We never taught him to talk or played tapes, he just picked up what we say to him, things like, What are ya doing, you want a nut, you want a banana, you want to give me a kiss. He has a large cage but spends most of the day playing on his Jungle Gym on top of his cage in our Lanai. He's very friendly to family, but not strangers, he also will not talk when strangers are around. We love him to death, but people should not get a parrot because they are pretty and they talk. Parrots are a lot of work, more work than my 2 dogs, they are very messy, need sun and light, fresh fruit, healthy food, and they are noisy. Also, you need to spend a lot of time with them, or they will have problems.

Hey! I have 2 diamond doves that have laid eggs and now I have a brother and sister, from the same litter. What happens if they mate? I don't want them to become sexually active in their cage and have the new babies that have birth defects. Is it bad for them to mate, will anything be wrong with their babies? Thank you!

    Generally you do not need to worry about there being birth defects or anything of that nature with birds of the same family mating. I wouldn't worry about it, unless you just simply don't want more birds!

Hello, I just got my second Parakeet,a Budgie.yesturday. When I first pulled out of the parking space that I was in after buying my keet. He was perched on my finger verry close to the window of my car. Then after 8 minutes, He went to the top of my sterring wheel. It was verry funny. The bird was not afraid of anything. He was first facing oncomming traffic. Then he turned toward me. When I had to make a sharp turn, he started to go down, I had to put him in one of my hands, That was after I put him on the steering when again. He rode there most of the way home, 15 miles away from our home, Then we went to the drive thru at the bank. To get new pet toys. He was again on top of the steering wheel, until we went back home again.... If this were a Story A would call it driving miss tweety...

We had our dusky conure for seven years before discovering he was a she - an egg. She is a VIP in our household but when we were out at work she was lonely and we were guilt ridden. We'd researched for years, introducing a companion but advice was mostly negative, even from a local bird sanctuary. 7 years later we adopted an unwanted male dusky conure, 5 years old. They were kept in separate cages, next to each other and had limited contact for 4 months, they tolerated each other you could say. Suddenly they clicked one day. They are so happy. Seeing them now confirms how important it is for birds to have a companion. We went with our instincts and thankfully it was right to do so.

    You should cut it's feathers, and say some words to him daily like Hello, what's your name. He'll talk in about 3 or 5 months, If you repeat these this daily.

I have an eight year old female Plum-headed Parakeet that is changing colors to match my male Plum-headed Parakeet. I know she is female because I had her DNA tested as a baby. The male changed colors at two to three years of age. My female has been getting the male colors for the past year! Why would this happen?

    Color changes in parrots can be related to illness or a poor diet. Slight shifts in shade or intensity are normal, but a major change to a different color, or small changes along with unusual behavior, can indicate a problem. Your best bet is to take the female to a veterinarian for a checkup.

Just to share with all lovebirds lovers ... My two Dutch Blue Lovebirds are very fund of apple, pear, and corns. They also like seeds from apple, melon, and pomegranate. Honeysuckle and Star Jasmine flowers are their snacks when in season. Since both of them are 'boys', they have their own favorite playmates, one is stuffed toy Garfield that has bright orange fur, the other is soft and juicy wheat grass bed ... :o) ... As long as they are happy, I'm fine with it.
