Hi. My daughter Bianca is now 11 years, we bought her first bird, a green ring neck about two years ago a baby with few feathers on her. We all love that bird so much. She does not live in a cage, my husband made a big x-stick with stairs from the top to the bottom! For the first few months, just my daughter and I could handle her, she hated my husband and son. But with much attention and talk she loves them both, now! She goes as she pleases, and even our rottweiler dogs keep away from her, she bites their noses! In the winter, she would come in the evening and sleep inside my jacket!
We give her various kinds of fresh fruits, but no avocado or bananas. She gets also dried fruit and all sorts of seeds, she loves that. She also loves to shower with us!

We have had our Mealy for over 20 years...he is in his mid twenties. Apollo is an amazing parrot, so sweet and gentle. He is mellow and relaxed most of the time but when he yells, watch out! The phrase gentle giant definitely fits his personality. We are so lucky to have him in our lives and look forward to many more years with him!

    I've had my mealy for 8 years now! But saved him from a neighbor who I was good friends with, bought him not knowing anything about him! They never let him out and their kids abused him with all sorts of sticks!....asked them to sell him to me cause they didn't look after him and plus when I was there he would only go to me ..he was scared death of coming out of his cage!...Anyway he's been with me 8 years and he's a godsend talks loads and cage is always open! He walks round my house with all my dogs and kids!....I got a rescue amazon orange winged for a mate he loves her ...she was a wild bird now she's better with people and talks cause of him!....and she will sit on your hand when he's on....my mealy is called burt not my choice of name but he knows it.

I am shella, we have two healthy African Grey parrots available for sale at affordable prices. They are ok with health and have taken all their shots. They both speak and understand English and Greek, also they are now 10 weeks old. We are now in Berlin Germany but we can transport them to your home no matter your location.

My 10 week old baby parakeet grinds his beak which apparently means he is content, But at the same time he looks like hes trying to open his wings and pokes them out a bit and they look like they're shivering! This is while his face is poufy and happy looking but the rest of him is not because his wings are protruding and his chest feathers are just normal. I would like to know if this wing-shivering is normal.

As I walked thru my backyard to get the morning paper one white dove flew up from the bushes to the roof. It sat there and was not afraid. I was pleasantly surprised to see it. This is a first for me. I hope it sticks around.

We purchased a Miligold Macaw last year from a local pet store. Zachary, our Miligold Macaw, is 1 Year and 2 Months old. (Hatch Date: March 25, 2008) We actually found him just a few days after he hatched. We went to visit him almost everyday. We even participated in some of his feedings. Zachary is the most well behaved Macaw we have ever encountered. We believe he's so nice because he saw us almost everyday before we were able to take him home. He has never bitten ANYONE and loves strangers! (Unbelieveable, huh?) He LOVES showers! He does sometimes get loud when we leave because he hates being alone. I live in an apartment and the neighbors say that they never hear him. He can say "Zachary" & "Hellooooo". It is so cute! Zachary has not grown attached to one person. (Thankfully) He loves both me and my boyfriend. Zachary is like a little dog. He loves to be rolled onto his back and for you to rub his tummy. He his unfortunately very destructive, as are all Macaws of this size. After people pet Zachary, we warn them that not all Macaws are as nice and gentle as he is. we tell them not to just go up to any Macaw and attempt to pet it. We've had my terrible experiences with other birds, so we know all too well what can happen. We Love Zachary more than anything. He is apart of us now and he will be with us for the rest of my life.
I would definitely reccomend a Miligold Macaw because of their sweet personality, lovely coloring, and because they are just all together wonderful birds!!!

We had a pair of budgies named love2x and loveydove, then suddenly they died after 3 years. We bought another pair of budgies and name it after the first pair. The girl budgie lays eggs more than a month but still they are not hatched. I don't know why.
