I have had Altair ("the flyer" in Arabic) since I was 12 and I am now 24 years old, so I have had A.C. for about 12 1/2 years so far, though they went by more quickly than I could imagine, let me tell you that!

I am a longtime animal lover, and I was the type of kid you would see with their nose stuck in a book, looking up how to milk snakes for their venom, or how to auccessfully capture a crocodile, etc. Well, I stumbled across a book on bird pets when I was about ten, found out about Cockatiels when I was 10 1/2, and spent about 1 and a half years studying everything I could on them. . .

. . .A.C. is a standard grey cockatiel, confirmed by a vet as being male. He lives in near harmony with a rat, a cat, and a bat. Not joking. I have one twisted animal kingdom in my house :P. He is a surprisingly quick learner, and as he had been handfed as a baby he was very tame when I got him, so I could begin training almost right away.

Cockatiels are a wonderful first pet to have, though DO NOT get it for your child as a "responsibility lesson." My aunt did that to her child and it had disastrous results. Get it only if you are commited for a longterm 'relationship', but when you do get it be ready for one of the best things in your life!

Hi, my name is Sandy and I have two sun conures. I bought " Daddy's Girl" first and we fell inlove with her. She seemed lonely so we bought a male to keep her company, (we haven't named him yet). They are the most precious additions to our family. She was three years old when we got her and she can say all kinds of words. At night when we cover them up for bed she will tell my husband "give me a kiss" and after you give her a kiss she says "love you". I am so glad we chose sun conures as an addition to our family. They are playful and very easy to train. Daddy's Girl also loves to hang upside down on my finger and she will say shes a "pretty girl" while doing her trick. Thanks to them, we can share all the love our little family has with one of the sweetest kinds of animals on the planet. Also we own 4 cats and she calls them " bad kitties" when she thinks they get more attention than her. If you own a sun, love them and spend lots of time with them.......the rewards are great.

Just discovered your website and was happy to see that my Rosella is right on target. I was told in the beginning that they didn't make great pets and not to expect much; however, I have had her for 7 years and she mimics words such as, Come here, Hi Honey, and whistles Jingle Bells, Laurel & Hardy medley, and some others. We have found she gets irritated by my son-in-law's British accent...talk about screaming! Keep up the great website.

I bought my Orange-winged from a pet shop here in kuwait not knowing the age. her age from the eyes, it seems she must be older than 3 yrs. I have her for 11 months, she seems afraid all that time. just last week she stepped on my hand, good progress. she is quiet and in the morning she makes one long sound like starting an engine.

i have an umbrella and she is a big sweetheart. i also have a quaker and although bonnie is huge conpared to sweety, she will back off if he squares up to her. she could easily bite his head off but has never touched him yet. she snuggles up to all of the family not just me. watch your jewelry. all parrots like shiny things but bonnie makes a beeline for my rings. i would not recommend one of these birds until you have thought how long a commitment they are. thinking fifty years is ok on paper until you do it, and can't go on holiday or you feel ill and want to stay in bed. umbrellas don't get it and can scream the house down, not to mention stripping them selves naked.

I found my first Parakeet one month ago today, and this last Friday September 16th I found the second Parakeet, and after going on this web site I have discovered that the first Parakeet I found is a Male and he is Yellow and named Stormy and the one I found on Friday is Blue and a Female, I named her Sunny. Who knows, there may come a day when I have baby Parakeets. They are in the same cage and get along real well.

Hi. I bought Tweety In 1982. He was only a baby. His Favorite was to say "Right Now "and "Give the Razzeberryies". This morning I found Him dead in his cage. Yesterday he was a happy little bird and now he is gone. I wished I new he was going to leave me because I feel I needed that special moment with him. I have spent 23 years with him.
I know I took very good care of him but I got no warning of him. I am so heart broken

i have 9 white doves and love them as much as my kids. if i am in another room and call one of them they will fly around till they find mom and then stomp on me and make a laughing noise. i have so many stories of my birds, from they're diet to things they do. they love ice cream even thought they will take very little bites, let their beaks get warm, and then take more. they like tea and coffee with sugar and milk, and they like cookies, pizza, ect. so i agree they are so affectionate. i have one who will stick her whole head in your mouth and peak at your tongue and lips, and she does it to give kisses. i say give kisses and open my mouth and she will as well as she has tried to drink out of my mouth. a little gross but shes my baby and i have had her 11 years and still going. she gets an attitude and everything, typical girl lol! well i hope to share more stories and my birds are on a website called webshots under community photos and then birds and a subcatagory is doves. the name your looking for is ggregsgirl if you care to check it out. my daughter has rescued a baby wild dove it fell out of the nest. she saw it in the road and ran to get it before it was hit. i tried to save it so i put it in the cage with a pair of my doves. and oh my god they started to feed and care for it as if it was their own. so now he is my "mudpuddle", his real is baby and hes so lovable. hes on the site as well. if i can download pic here i will put my birds on here as well. there are 8 white, one brown. everytime i have a dove i end up with a male or female then the second will be whatever the first baby wasnt. so in result i have 4 pairs male and female, and one without a mate. they are a joy to have.

we got our umbrella in February of this year. He is very attached to my husband and my husband can sit with him for hours. "Barney" rarely meets a stranger and is very much a social bird. He has brought us many nights of laughs at his silly antics. We are really happy that he has adopted us as his family.
