I had a wonderful peach fronted conure and he was so so sweet, unfortunately one day he accidentally flew out the door. i live in Alaska and it was in may so i doubt he would survived the night. We went looking for him just after he flew away and found him. I called to him and he was coming down from a large spruce, hopping branch to branch and he hopped on one and it broke. He got scared and flew off into the woods. He was a lovely bird and his name was Prefered Bird.

I agree parakeets are very cute and worth it. I have 3 parakeets. the first one i got is a year old, his name is rocket. i had him for a year and realized that she needed a friend. so i go buy a baby one and put them next to each other in different cages to see if they get along. 3hrs go by and we put them in the same cage. rocket starts pecking the bird and annoying him. we go to the store and tell them what happened. we put them in separate cages and got another bird for the baby. they are doing fine. the one year old is named rocket and the babys are named indigo and snowy.

I have had my cockatoo for 1 1/2 yrs now and I believe he is about 9 yrs. old. He came from a San Diego pet shop. I think he may have been mistreated because he freaks out when he sees black or a stick. He has saved my sanity from time to time and he likes to cuddle especially in the morning. He must have 100's of different sounds. I love him so much and I have tamed him quite a bit. He can get very excited sometimes and bite. He does alot of tricks and is very smart. When I come home from work, I will bring him outside so he can watch me water the plants. He will be perched on the back of a chair in the sun and I will mist him with the sprayer. I love the way he smells. He enjoys having his wing muscles massaged under his wings. When I feel like being silly I will blow raspberries on his tummy.

I have a 5 year old GCC called Ringo. He is an absolute darling, although he does have his moody moments and is prone to temper tantrums when he can't get his own way. I stay in an apartment so his wings are clipped (for his own safety)- but that doesn't seem to bother him as he thinks he should be carried every where anyway ! He does try to talk and mimics whistles perfectly. He happily keeps himself amused for hours (even when I'm at home) but enjoys a good playtime together. After not being much of a "bird person" I am really so glad I decided to share my home with Ringo - it would be a dull day without him ! Even my husband is attached to him and they have a special cuddle time before Ringo goes to bed !

In 1990 I brought home a 9 month old Timneh. Within a year she was quite tame, talking and mimicing sounds. We were great friends for seven years. My life changed and I moved where I could not keep pets. My neighbor gave Bingo a good home. Another seven years passed. I got a call asking if I could take Bingo back. Now she is 15! I was ready to start training all over again. No need! She remembered me immediately. In a few hours she was cuddling like she had never been away. I am so lucky to have her back and will never give her up again.

Hi

I have Jenday Conures. These little guys are the most adorable pets you could have. They are so cuddly and loving, they are a pleasure to be with. They tend to be friendly with just about all of the family.

I would strongly recommend these for young children as they tend to have the same nuturing need as a child. They love to be cuddled and children love to cuddle pets. Always keeping in mind how young the child is and keeping them supervised is still a need.
To get pleasure from a pet, you will from a Jenday conure.

We have a breeding pair of PF's and they are just hatching their first clutch of 4 eggs. The first hatched yesterday. Their names are Conrad and Connie. We are hoping to have a healthy mess of babies soon. C & C are not hand tame, but they are very social and interact with us joyfully. Conrad waits for his piece of apple everyday.

We got ours 4 weeks ago as an unweaned baby. So she thinks we'er mom and dad. She acts more like a baby than a bird. Her favorite thing is to be down our shirts, and she has to sleep in a drawer padded with a towel and with old tee shirts for her to crawl in. She yells when she wakes up to let us know she's awake. She also yells when she hears the front door open since she knows I'm back from work. She's the sweetest thing.

I have a Peach Fronted Conure named Swee'Pea. He has been with me for 3 years. He was a little over 1 yr old when I got him from a pet store that took time to work with their birds. He spoke several words, knew how to step up and imitated every sound he heard. He had a little "nervous breakdown" one month after I got him (still don't know what caused it, possibly his age). One morning, I noticed he stopped talking, acted panicked and would fall and break blood feathers when I had him step up. With patience and advice from a behaviorist, he gradually regained his self assurance and now is back to his old self. He is VERY sweet. Loves to kiss and flirt. Clicks his beak to music (loves Stevie Wonder). Loves everyone who visits. Is generally a joy in my life. I've read things about these guys being loud, I don't find that to be the case at all, he only yells when I first get home from work or if he feels the need to warn us of "danger", for example the dust mop. He's a gem!
