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.

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!
