I got Conga (yes,her name)when she was 2 mos. I was curious as what it would be like when she talked ...if ever! One morning I heard a very faint Hello. I felt like I did when my children said their 1st word. Best of all Conga was only 7 months old! Conga is now 4 yrs old and a chatterbox. She not just talks...she talks to us and at us. She goes from her sweet voice to her answer me right now voice. Favorite TV show...AFV...She laughs with the audience. I think she talked early because when she made a sound I would repeat it, soon she was repeating my sounds. Her first sound at 5 mos was grackle-grackle, so I too said it. As she would say, Conga good girl! We agree.

I have the best African Grey. He is one year old and I have had him since he was 3 months. He loves cheese and peppermint. In the morning he says "want some cheese". He loves his name (Chico) and has decided that is my name too. Although the other bird is called by his name (Peppy). They are the best birds and I enjoy spoiling him. He loves his showers and loves all the attention we give him. He makes me laugh wwhen he coughs and sneezes. He always says "bless you" after he sneezes. He also loves to get the sniffles. They are fun birds.

My mother has a female budgie she is about a year old. We had her for 6 months before. This bird is unlike the others I've read about. She wont eat fruit or veggies. She tries to bite you when you reach your hand in the cage. When you put a spray of millett in front of her mirror she will break it in half if it's in her way of seeing herself. If there is a toy in her cage she doesn't approve of she will break it or do something to it to where it will have to be removed. She doesn't talk. There is something she does have a big
ATTITUDE!

I own a five-month-old green-cheeked conure named Mojo. He doesn't speak yet, but he does make some whistling noises. Being a budgie person until now, I can't decipher what his parrot noises mean like I can with my two budgies. He bathes in a small bowl almost every day. He likes to burrow underneath the paper lining the bottom of his cage and in his own scarf, and also likes walking through and under things. He's sweet and affectionate and wants his cheeks rubbed all the time. He likes to play with a ponytail holder--he becomes so absorbed with it that he'll lay on his back, waving it around with one foot, and sometimes does accidental somersaults. He generally ignores my budgies, but eats their food and plays with their toys. His wings are clipped and he likes to go outside on my shoulder and gaze wide-eyed at the hummingbirds and the hugeness of the world around him. He loves all kinds of food, especially fresh berries and fruit juice. Mojo's a great pet.

We received Bert & Doris 2003 as a pair, hand-fed both. Very healthy and happy with Bert talking up a storm at two years old. Bert died 08-2005 by west Niles, confirmed by UCD. We have one indoor pet Derbyan and then outdoors we had Bert and Doris, we were expectings good things from our breeding pair. Bert will be very missed.

I bought my Sengal 23 years ago, her birthday will be next month. When I got her she was very young, i think to young, from a pet store and had many problems. Quiet she is not! Behaviors many! But I love her dearly! She is very anti-social. dont know why. But we find joy in her anyway with her antics. She has learn to talk. Says her name BoBo, makes the sound of the phone ringing, says my name, and on occasion says a swear word. When she is extremly afraid she will get out of her cage and run! into my bedroom and stand beside my bed and yell. We have been through good and tough times, she is my friend. four years ago BOBO lost her friend. believe it or not she shared her cage with a LoveBird! they were the best of buddies, snuggled with each, other preened eaach other etc. BOBO looked for days when Beesha passed on. It was heartbreaking. so anti social but a good heart and loving, thats my sengal

I am the joyful sister of a 3 yr old female eclectus "Gerty". She has an extensive vocabulary and often shouts "WOW" when she impresses herself by teasing the cat. She is sweet & sour. Sometimes chases me across the floor if she has escaped from her cage. She has a flock to chat with; blue/gold Macaw, yellow crown amazon, & sun conure, all of whom she imitates. Her favorite treat is fresh aloe leaf. She will sit in the shower endlessly and is in beautiful plummage. I love all of what she brings to my life .

My cockatiel's name is Copter. That's what he sounds like when he would fly around the house. He is 23 years old and still whistles and talks. It took us a few years to realize that his first strange sounds were his immitation of a miniature poodle barking. The dog lived across the street from Copter's window and it was always barking.The dog must be long gone by now as that was over 20 years ago, but the bark lives on to this day! After fifteen years we finally realized that his weird tapping on the bottom of his cage was an exact duplication of the washing machine in the room opposite his cage. He used to fly every day until this year. He hates fruit and vegetables and has never eaten them, except for an occasional piece of lettuce. He tricks a lot of people into thinking that there is another person in the house with his beautiful tunes.
