Hello. Last weekend I adopted a blue budgie parakeet that had been rescued from attack outside by two crows. I've never owned a parakeet and am now reading and learning. The budgie appears healthy and is getting acclimated to his new home. He sat in the bottom of the cage most of the first week and is just now starting to chirp and move around on the branches and bars. I think he is a male because he has blue coloring at the top of his beak, around his nostrils. I'd like to get him a companion, and am wondering if I should get another male or female. I don't want to raise parakeets so assume I should get a male. Will two males fight...

I have a beautiful Blue and Gold Macaw, and she has been part of the family for 20 years now, her name is Lacy. When I first looked at her at the pet store it was love at first sight. I spent every Sunday at the pet store to visit and feed her, even though there was "Do Not Touch Signs" BIRD WILL BITE, (she had several differnt homes (5) and they would always bring her back due to biting) all over her cage.Each Sunday she would eat out my hands and we became close. Then one Sunday the manager at the pet store came to me and told me I would never see her again because she was going to shipped to another store because this store was closing. Needless to say she became part of our family that day, the pet store deliverd her, cage, food and vet. visits for 1 year that afternnon. The love grew, and she greets me with hello every afternoon when I get home from work. Lacy is very spoiled by my husband and I and we love her very much, so proud to have her in our family.

We just got a new parraket from a pet store in our small town.We named him Oliver and we call him Ollie for short. The owner of the shop said she just got it from the breeder and the breeder said it was just ready to leave its mother. About how old would that be?

For Sal - There is nothing to get worry that they scream. Infact this is a bird which feels more shy than any other...

Hi, I've just gottn my first rosella, and think they are the cutest bird I've seen. I just want to know how you stop them biting and to step on to your finger. I've looked on other websites and they said to clip their wings, but I think thats too cruel. He's 6 weeks old and I've had him in the house a few days, just want to do it properly so I thought I'd ask. I know he needs to get used to me, just want advice. I've recently lost my kakariki arnold. I was devastated and thought having a different bird will take my mind of it. Didn't really want another kakariki because it won't feel the same. He was such a character :(. So if you can help it would be great thanks.

Recently I received an e-mail with the sad news of the passing away of a dear friend. Morning finally arrived after a difficult night and a pure white dove came to eat from a dish of bird feed we keep for the morning doves. She was a thing of beauty; not at all common here in Southern AZ and she gave me a feeling of peace. She still comes in the afternoon to eat and is not frightened if I come near her as I water my plants as she sits on our wall warming herself. I feel blessed.

I just recieved a 3 year old male goffin cockato named leo. He dances and says "Rock N Roll". He loves attention and loves to play and if I don't keep somthing on the doors of the cage he will reach out and open them. I am really enjoying his company and his comic behavior.

Hi I have a blue female black masked lovebird who is sitting on 8 eggs but the father has died. Will she still incubate the eggs til they hatch and care for the little babies by herself or should I get another male? My male that died was a green black masked lovebird pure breed, both are pure breeds.

Two snow white doves appeared in my backyard about a month ago. They are now nesting in my Elm tree over the driveway. I can see the nest out my kitchen window. We've fed birds for about 20 years now and this is the first time for the white doves. I hope they are successful with their babies. How cool it would be to have more of these beautiful birds.
