I have had my Lutino cockatiel for almost 2 years, I bought her as a baby, hand tamed her myself, she has to be the easiest and best bird I have ever owned. She is super-friendly and will chatter and whistle, funny enough she will allow my one year old son to play with her!

I Own a 3 month old GCC. His name is Ozzy. Ozzy is such a little explorer. He shares a room with 5 lovebirds and he loves to take a bath. Everytime he hears me come through the door he freaks out and wants out of his cage immediately. He's so funny. He is having a little bit of trouble saying his name but has no problem saying Ricky which i guess sounds close to him. He loves to play catch with our jack russel kato .. what a great bird.

Chrissy is our beautiful little lutino indian ringneck and her bright personality reflects her beautiful yellow plumage. When we got Chrissy as a baby we knew very little about ringnecks, but it didn't take long to fall totally in love with her. Chrissy is very tame and will take love from anyone. She loves to play and shred anything she can get ahold of and she talks up a storm. I have met many people who claim that ringnecks are not good companion birds and can be very mean but I think they are horribly misunderstood birds. We own everything from budgies to macaws and our ringneck is, hands down, the sweetest and most charming bird in our flock. The key to owning a happy, healthy, and sweet ringneck is making sure that you spend time with your bird every day because ringnecks don't take kindly to being ignored (You wouldn't either if you were someones pet)! I think one of the only drawbacks to owning ringnecks is their loud, shrill call that sounds like "BAM BAM BAM" but this noise can be kept to a very minimal amount when properly taken care of. Overall these are awesome birds and charm their way into the hearts of just about anyone, even those who don't really care for birds!

We got our Derbyan Parakeet in January of 2005 from my Sister-in-law for $60.00 (What a steal, Huh?)We named her Mary Jane (M.J. for short) she is 2 years old and the apple of Daddy's eye, she loves when I sing to her. Thank you for having this Derbyan site.

I found out my parakeet is very high maintenance. He craves attention and when he doesn't get any attention he bites. I found different kinds of whistles that he likes. I talk to him all the time now. When I'm not home I play the radio for him. My parakeets name is pockets.

Thank you. Your site helped me identify a parrot I recently rescued. I knew it was a Amazon, now I know what type it is also.
Thank You. Looking forward to many years with my new best friend.

I had a cockatiel named George and he passed away a few years ago from a green-ant bite.(It was so sad. He was such a good bird and I loved him so much.) I always took him outside to eat some grass, and he never flew away because he loved us so much. I loved him back. i'll never forget George. I might be getting Lauren's cockatiel called Milo though! She wrote in about him. she is one of my friends at school. I have seen Milo and she is such a wonderful bird but not as good as George!! I love you George!

Budgies are friendly, heartwarming birds. They make good friends as well as pets. I once had one that would sit on my shoulder and nuzzle my chin all day long. When I went upstairs to breakfast, and the bird was left alone, it decided to take matters into its own hands. The bird slipped under the door crack, flew around the kitchen, and landed on my head.

I have an Orange wing Amazon. Although I bought him untamed he soon understood I meant him no harm and will provide him with food and water. I studied animal behaviour and formed some of my own opinions about animal intelligence and habits. Within one year I had my "untame" Orange wing Amazon flying around my gardens in London City and coming back, totally free and at liberty for a day or more. This is a very, very brief account. I am not suggesting people to go out and open cage doors, because there is much observation and body languge to understand before allowing freedom and trust. Since parrots are a hundred times more intelligent than pigeons, it is not that surprising they understand "home" means food and protection, almost as a dog must think. I taught or brought out of my bird its natural instinct to return to its flock or partner (your family or you). That is why I think it is returning, it feels it is now a part of a new flock of humans. This is not a trick the bird does, nor is this the kind of thing homing pigeons do. This is a total act of trust and respect by both sides. It can not be done over night, and you must have a good relationship with your bird before hand and not be nervous. Because seeing a loose amazon up a tree next door does take some courage, trust me. The benifits are 1) If your amazon escapes, there is a good chance it will come back 2) If there are cats around then an escaped bird will be better positioned to survive. 3) The feeling of bonding can be no greater when a flying amazon returns home after flying free all day( and eating all the apples in the neighborhood.) My bird could only just be trusted to fly free and come back after a two year period. So it does not happen quickly, but the rewards were where I lost him three times and he came back three times. Before training my first observations were with a Monks parrot and an African Gray.
