My Double Yellow Headed Amazon D.J. is the best! All the other birds are wanna-bes!

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.

Joey is only 9 months old and this is his 2nd home but we plan to have him for a very long time. I have only had him 5 days so the trust is slowly being built but he has not shown any agressive behaviour towards me and he loves the pinyada filled with raisins and banana that we bought for him!

I have an alexanderine parakeet and I am 9. My alex parrot's name is chomper amd he is just over 12 months old. He is starting to talk. I would love to get him out of his cage but I'm scared he'll fly into something and hurt himself. He loves eating corn. when he talks he says "what are ya doin hey". At night when he is ready to sleep I sneak over to his cage and pat him on his greasy beak. I have seven other birds and they all copy each other!

Nemo, my 1 1/2 year old is our class clown. We wrestle back an forth with a white plastic bottle cap. He pulls it from my mouth, beaks it a bit, then puts it back in my mouth again for more. He'll do this for an hour if I could hang with him!
When he wants to go to sleep on me, I have to rub his foot. If I don't he'll try to pick up my fingers and look at his feet.

I have 3 peach faced love birds whose names are: Joey (boy), Jesse (boy) and Melody (girl).I love them so much because they are tame and i can play with them all the time. they are a great pet for anyone who hasn't had birds before. every night i bring them inside so they don't get cold and they are my alarm clock in the morning; they wake me up at about 6.30am!! i love them so much and if anything happened to them i would soooo freak out!!!

I cannot believe how smart my Timneh "Maya" is! She chats all day, sings, whistles, giggles, etc.. She even says some phrases in Italian, which is always so cute in her little voice. Her favorite trick is to wait until a guy walks into the house, give a big 'wolf whistle', and say "helloooo...sailor boy!"

She's surprisingly cuddly for a Grey, too; she'd sit on your hand and give you kisses all day if you'd let her. Just say, 'give me some beak!' and watch her lean up and smack you one! :)

Thanks for letting me comment about my conure, his name is JJ and he is 4 years old. he counts to three and says Thank you, goodbye when We are going out to shop. he knows the difference between going outside and leaving our house. He calls me Papaw Charles and my wife Mama Reba. You ask him where he is and he says here I am. Sings Rocka by baby and gets mad because we want him to stop talking and says, you little fart. JJ is a real part of our life and we are his family. He is happy when he can go outside, will sit on my shoulder, and talk all the time, but he is bashful.

I got a white dove a few months ago, and he is the sweetest and most affectionate bird I've ever had (previously I cared for parakeets!) He does make a mess, throwing his seeds and feathers, but keeping his cage clean helps a lot. :)
