i have 2 beautiful babies, 1 boy & 1 girl. They are now 3. I got my boy when he was 4 months and my girl when she was 6 months. They are the joy of my everyday and i dont know what life what be without them. As you can tell, i love my birds dearly. The bond that these birds form with you is just amazing, and not only with you but with each other. My two carry on like children (often worst)talking and screeching when they are not together.T hey do become very good talkers.My birds have free flight of the house and yes they are toilet trained. Hope you all have as much fun with your birds as i do with mine.

I have two peached faced lovebird...Buddy and Holly. I got Buddy first. He was the first bird i ever owned. I have baby snakes too and he was jealous of them, so I bought him a mate(that is where Holly comes in). I hand fed both of them formula for the first two months of their life. Buddy and Holly were caged together from the start. The other day Holly refused her food. Then a few hours later I saw Buddy and Holly at the food bowl...and buddy was teaching her how to eat. Now they are very close and inseperable and live in the office at the zoo i work at. Lovebirds are great.

We named our 4 month old child "Cherry". We've had many pets, but having an African Grey is absolutely fabulous. She is already showing signs of her remarkable intelligence.If you should want a pet that just sits in a cage that you walk by occasionally an African Grey is NOT for you. They require constant love and attention, the more time you spend with them the greater your reward. They don't just mimic what you say they have the ability to think and say things in the proper context.They are not just pets, but a life long friend and companion that will fill your life with many joyous times.

I just bought my Hahn's Macaw, Everett, two days ago. I've been visiting him at the pet store he was in for the last month (traveling over an hour just to go see him) and I was so in love. I've had birds before, but this one is so different. He loves everyone he meets and is just a sweetie. He loves attention, but isn't very talkitive. He hasn't learned any words yet, but he mimics the sound of talking. He also likes to make the same clicky noises that I make. He's only 4 months and I can tell that he's already going to be a quick learner.

We have recently adopted a beautiful handfed dusky male and I would never have believed a bird could be so intelligent, affectionate and adorable. Watching Nomo is much better than TV. He is worth every penny we paid for him.

I'm now the happy owner of a male Eclectus (subspecies unknown)because one day in mid April of 2005 my daughter look out the window of her office and saw a beautiful parrot roosting on a low tree. She went out to see if she could capture the bird and when she saw he was going to fly she just grabbed him. Brought him home in a box with holes punched in it. We "googled" parrots and discovered this site with a perfect picture of our bird. There was no response to our ads for a lost parrot at our vets and local pet shops and there was no micro chip. There is a leg band indicating he is domestically bred. Fred is now housed in a $50 yard sale cage that is advertised on line for over $500 and other than a check up be the local bird doc and a lot of toys we have had no other expenses for this absolutely gorgeous bird with a great personality. Not talking yet but makes a huge range of "noises" and Fred bird talk.

Your site is very good. I would not have known that the cabbage family was bad for budgies, although I have never given it to them.

We purchased are Senegal parrot three years ago from a local bird store. Born on November 1, 2002, We brought Elmo (named before we were told her sex) home the weekend after New Year's 2003. My husband and I have no children, so Elmo is very spoiled. Grandma says "Thank God you don't have any kids since the bird is so spoiled". Elmo has free rein of the house when we are at home. The first thing we do is open the cage door and allow her to go wherever she wants to go. Normally she'll climb down the play set to make sure everyone is home. If one of us get home late she will pace until the other person gets home. If we don't open the cage door right away she will call for us until we let her out. Elmo speaks a few phrases, "Pretty Bird" "Oh, Pretty Baby" "Mommy" "Daddy" but I think she does better with the imitations of the microwave, alarm clock and my husband's cell phone. The "wolf whistle" and "charge" are also popular. She loves taking showers and will run to the bathroom door and she'll peck at the door until she's let in. She's plenty of fun and alot of work to keep occupied. But she is definitely special.
