We lost our beloved parakeet, PeeDee (real name Pedro but I couldn't pronounce it the way my son wanted) 2 weeks ago. He was a beautiful blue and white. PeeDee was a hand-me-down from several families who for one reason or another could not take care of him. He did have a mate before he came to us but she died (reason we got him). We had PeeDee for several months before I came to this website and found out that he needed a mate, so we brought Snowflake. Snowflake was almost white when we got her but now she is blue and white. PeeDee was such a sweet-heart. When Snowflake came along, he perked up and showed Snowflake where the food, water and where to sit when they were out of the cage. PeeDee was able to get in and out of the cage but to this day Snowflake doesn't know how to get in or out. It was really funny seeing PeeDee walk out of the cage and then talk Snowflake out by going around the cage with her and showing her where to go BUT she never caught on!! He didn't eat or drink until she was able to drink or eat when we first got Snowflake. They were so adorable together and acted like an old married couple. We loved PeeDee alot.
I got another parakeet but Snowflake and Buttercup because he is yellow don't seem to get on. Snowflake might still be depressed. I am going to change Buttercup for another parakeet to see if that will make a difference. I would recommend parakeets as pets to everyone!!

Hi, ive had rosellas for about 2 years now i agree with the above, they are very noisy at times and quite grumpy with each other sometimes, but they are also very sweet, although they are timid they take food from my hand and are rewarding to look after, they are very funny birds!!

Unfortunately my family has just our Blue Fronted Amazon "Herbie" of 33yrs. He was a major part of our family, he was like a person to us. My father got Herbie in 1972 around the time they started to stopped letting these parrots in from Brazil. He was here before me and my brother we're born so he was like my older brother. It's so amazing how smart they are, he actually knew when one of us was sick, he would start making kissing sounds. We treated him so good and spolied him to no end. We we're told that Amazons have the same type of digestive system as humans and can be feed human food. Years ago he would continually make loud barking noises(sounding like our dog at the time) and we figured out he just wanted what we we're eating, because once we gave him our food he'd stop "barking". So over the years he would eat what we ate besides he regular diet of seeds, fruit & vegatables, because we we're told he could. So now that we lost him we are looking more into the background of Amazons and are seeing that obesity is common among them and I only wish we would have read about this earlier and not had feed him so much, because we feel that might of been 1 of the reasons that shorten his life. I just advise people that decide on having one of these parrots, to please find out as much information that you can to take care of them properly and don't feel bad if they make you feel guilty for not giving them all of your table food(because they will carry on) just give them ALITTLE. Talk to them often, play music or put the T.V on when your not home (because they love different sounds and voices) and let them out of the cage (Herbie loved to walk around and follow us everywhere). I wish the best of luck to anyone that owns one of these amazing parrots, they are a friend for life. Please cherish everyday you have with them.

i have 2 parakeets named Lily and Joe. i just got them 3 days ago but Joe is already trusting me. he would use my finger as a perch or sit on my shoulder, though sometimes he dosen't want to go back into his cage. Lily however dosen't like me, but sometimes i'm able to stroke her back. your websit is great!!!

I am really struggling with my Harlequin Macaw. We had him as a chick. At 3 years old he plucked and shredded most of his feathers overnight. We spent

I recently got a pair Fischer's Lovebird. Basically i only keep and breed budgies, they were the first type of parrots i fell in love with and still haven't gotten over. But my love birds are also amazing. They were completely new for me so out of respect i named them Mr and Mrs Smith, although it was a little hard to distinguish the Mr from Mrs. But they are absolutely darlings. I used to think budgies were noisy but they surpass everyone. I simply love them, they are bundle of energy. Sometime they will make noise to call attention and when some one looks at them they try to hide their faces in each other. They love to chew any thing that is chewable (or even not). We call them our little destructomatic T47s.
They have not started breeding but i cannot wait to have little lovebirds.

We just found out that our macaw hen was a Ruby and not a Harlequin. During the hurricanes last year she and her mate spent 2 months living in the house. Her intelligence was amazing. She calmed down and accepted the changes better than her tame husband. Now, after 5 years of care and hope, she and her husband of many years gave us a chick today. WE are very excited.

Hello- I purchased my Hahn's at a bird mart on Valentine's Day. (He was 7 months old when we got him,) When I picked him up, he kept kissing me so I had to have him! Since then, he has been quite the little treasure. He likes to make 'kiss' sounds, and is starting to mimic my laughter. I recently purchased an Illiger's Macaw, and the two are getting quite close. A favorite birdie pasttime is to run around the living room floor grabbing each other's tail, and wrestling. My Hahn's is more outgoing (and noisy) than the Illiger's. He loves to sign and babble. I highly recommend this little package.
