I have a ringneck dove that fell off the powerline in back of our house. I'm not sure if it got shocked or not but am trying my best to care for it (rehabilitate I suppose is the right word). All we have is chicken feed and wheat berries. I was thinking of trying to give it a cherry and/or a blackberry just to try to get it to eat something. I can't tell if it's eating or drinking. It doesn't coo but just sits in the box blinking. It's mate still is hanging around our yard - just looking for advice... :)

I have enjoyed reading the information on this site as I have only had my pair of Rosellas a few weeks and need all the help I can get in the early stages. It has been great interacting with the birds, although they are not tame as I believe they are over eighteen months old. They do seem to bicker a great deal and one is very dominant over the other. However they are fascinating to watch both in and out of the cage and I am looking forward to many years with them. So far so good!

I just got 2 eastern rosellas a week ago, a male and female. Named them Sonny & Cher. They are the prettiest birds I think I have ever seen, they are so active and they sing all day. I hope I can tame them, but if not, just watching them is enough for me. The man I bought them from said they are ready to breed, so I put a nesting box in the cage and they are already showing interest, so wish me luck.

Parrots are not pets in the traditional sense, like a dog or a cat. They are not domesticated animals. They are identical genetically to their wild counter parts. They are wild animals. They are going to be naturally noisy during certain times of the day. They bond with their humans, and consider them to be their "flock leaders." They are going to be loud, messy, and a little nippy from time to time. If you are unwilling to accept these facts, you should not be parrot owner. I have had my yellow naped Amazon Clyde for 17 years, since the day he was born. I got him from a breeder and learned so much from her on the "do's and don'ts" of parrot ownership. He is the joy of my life, and I feel thankful for him every day. He rarely nips, will go to other people, and when he gets a little too loud, I start calling out his favorite words and he settles down. Parrots are special creaures for special people. For true animal lovers. They need a little more understanding then a dog or a cat, or even a goldfish.

I have owned my yellow nape for all of his 17 years. Clyde is loud, parrots ARE loud, especially in the morning when we are waking up together. As I go about my morning routine getting ready for work, I yell out a few of his favorite words and call back back and forth to each other. He has bitten me a couple of times. But, I deserved it. It was times when he wanted to be left alone and I didn't notice his body language. By the way, I live on the 5th floor of a condo complex in downtown Denver. A parrot is a wild animal, not a domesticated pet like a dog or a cat. You must allow for the wild instincts, such as calling out to its flock occasionally, if you are going to share your home with one of these amazing creatures. Only true animal lovers should ever be lucky enough to be "owned" by a parrot.

We have been seeing a parakeet in our backyard with all the other birds. We don't know if parakeets are naturally in the wild, or if this bird has flown away from home somehow. We don't know how to help this bird, or if it really even needs help. Can they survive outside with the other birds?

I have 2 parakeets 1 male, Clover, and 1 female, T.J. (Tweety Jr.). Their cage door is open almost all the time, except for when some guests are over that don't like them or are afraid of them. T.J. I had since she was a baby. I had their parents, Lucky (the male) and Tweety (the female). Lucky was truly lucky. We found him in the fall in PA in the evening when the temp was in the 50's. He is a deep blue almost midnight blue parakeet. We had ask around the neighborhood where we found him if they or anyone they knew was missing a parakeet. No one was or anyone they knew was. My grandmother had Tweety at the time so he stayed with her. We had put up signs all around the neighborhood and one at the local liberary. No one claimed him. Tweety couldn't have cared less about Lucky at first. After a while they fell in love and had 4 babies. When I moved to another state I had to leave them there, but they have a good home. Right now I'm hoping T.J. and Clover will have babies soon. I have to put their nesting box in the cage. I cant wait!

If I had been told five or six years ago that I would have a bird as a best friend I would say it was crazy, but here I am! My double yellow is named Sweetie. She is five years old, and I just love her. Sweetie had been sold by a local bird-shop owner, "half down, and the rest in thirty days when you pick her up". She was being boarded by my friend who breeds cockatiels, until the people came to pick her up. I moved here and was renting a room from my cockatiel breeding friend, and Sweetie started to make friends with me. Well, the people never came back to get her, and she just flirted with me, and kept it up until I gave in and payed the rest that was owed on her and bought her for myself. I don't think of her as a pet at all, but a very close friend and companion. She shares all my meals, and is very partial to Italian food. She has a great big cage, and lots of toys, and all my friends tell me that I spoil her rotten! She is very social, but doesn't like to be touched by strangers. With me she is very loving and sweet. I am so happy she came into my life, and look forward to spending the rest of my days with my l'il Sweetie!

Hello, my birds are very playfal. They say males are blue, how dark blue are we talking here. Tiger is a male and he is lite blue on the beak and niles. I gave him that name becaue he looks like a tiger. Spring is a female, they say they have pink or brown niles. Spring is all spring colors. I upgraded they're cage today, they are not use to flyng around in it. The cage is blue, W:12INS. by 43INS. long, hi is 86INS. They climb on every thing, they don't fly up to get around. My birds are not clean. Spring deaps his head in the water, and flecks it at tiger. When I'm not around they go blockers. Girls like to be handled, males don't, they draw blood. I put two swings in the cage so they don't fit over it. I think spring's pregnant, she's getting fat, and she does not want to be around anyone. She hogs the food dish, and when she's done she sits in it. I have to put her in the old cage, so he can eat and drink. She gets angry when I clean the cage. Tiger is loud half of the time. I've had them for 3 mouths now. My first bird looked like a rainbow and thats what I named it. She sat on my shoulder and I never had her in the cage much. She slept on a small blanket and she pulled it around her. She died because a worker dropped plaster all over the home.
My birls know 4 words; hI, hello, ho, and yea. I'm trying to get them to say Lura. One can say it, but the other one doesn't care.
From Richard
