My parents bought my little sister a Lutino, Peach-Faced mix Lovebird, and a Cockatail. They are so different it's amazing. The Cockatail (Walter) is about 11 months older I get along with the Lovebird (Chi-Chi) and as I am writing this she is on my back. haha. I have never thought that I could be so close to a BIRD! I have always been good with birds. I have taken the time to raise storm abandoned birds but this is completly different. Chi Chi is my baby! My younger sister doesn't may much attention being only 7 years old, so I take the liberty and play with her. I guess being the oldest (18) has it's rewards! Chi Chi is beautiful, and I love being aroung her. I get excited when I am coming home. She's such an affectionate bird.

I have a 26 years old Green-naped Rainbow Lorikeet (Peppo). He has had a few homes and came to me just recently. He's the most special bird I have ever owned. He hasn't always been treated as nicely as now, so when he came he had plucked himself and wasn't very easy to handle. But now he is much better and he loves to cuddle. He talks, says his own name, and talks in his sleep.

About 5 years ago, my family acquired an African Grey from my aunt who simply had too many pets to keep them all. At first he only bonded with my mom, but as time progressed he warmed up to me as well. He doesn't seem to like males so much, but thats okay. He does however imitate my father who has a rather deep voice. He cracks the family up. One afternoon my mom and i were sitting in the room where his cage is and we let him out. he was walking around his cage then he decided he wanted to sit by us. so he flew over and landed on the arm of the chair next to my mom and looked at her & said, "Whoa!" it made us both laugh out loud. Even though he gets very talkative in the mornings and at night, our house just wouldnt be the same without him, and i'm glad we got to keep him. He's wonderful!

my parakeet is yellow and green, it's very funny. Her name is Lady Bella. She's the best bird in the whole world, also the smartest.

Im a parrot lover and have a few asian parrot species. I love my lories very much. I have 4 pairs of lories in my backyard aviary. I have also a lot of african love birds, several pairs of cockatiels, blue naped and blue backed parrots,a pair of rose ringnecked parakeets, pair of umbies, and a pair of eclectus r. vosmaeri. But the most striking parrots that i have are my rainbow lories. All of my friends admired the colors
of their feathers and their abilities to entertain by doing acrobatic treks. I enjoy reading your writings about parrots. So i hope you like my message about my feathered friends!

We lost our beloved parakeet, PeeDee (real name Pedro but I couldn't pronounce it the way my son wanted) 2 weeks ago. He was a beautiful blue and white. PeeDee was a hand-me-down from several families who for one reason or another could not take care of him. He did have a mate before he came to us but she died (reason we got him). We had PeeDee for several months before I came to this website and found out that he needed a mate, so we brought Snowflake. Snowflake was almost white when we got her but now she is blue and white. PeeDee was such a sweet-heart. When Snowflake came along, he perked up and showed Snowflake where the food, water and where to sit when they were out of the cage. PeeDee was able to get in and out of the cage but to this day Snowflake doesn't know how to get in or out. It was really funny seeing PeeDee walk out of the cage and then talk Snowflake out by going around the cage with her and showing her where to go BUT she never caught on!! He didn't eat or drink until she was able to drink or eat when we first got Snowflake. They were so adorable together and acted like an old married couple. We loved PeeDee alot.
I got another parakeet but Snowflake and Buttercup because he is yellow don't seem to get on. Snowflake might still be depressed. I am going to change Buttercup for another parakeet to see if that will make a difference. I would recommend parakeets as pets to everyone!!

Hi, ive had rosellas for about 2 years now i agree with the above, they are very noisy at times and quite grumpy with each other sometimes, but they are also very sweet, although they are timid they take food from my hand and are rewarding to look after, they are very funny birds!!

Unfortunately my family has just our Blue Fronted Amazon "Herbie" of 33yrs. He was a major part of our family, he was like a person to us. My father got Herbie in 1972 around the time they started to stopped letting these parrots in from Brazil. He was here before me and my brother we're born so he was like my older brother. It's so amazing how smart they are, he actually knew when one of us was sick, he would start making kissing sounds. We treated him so good and spolied him to no end. We we're told that Amazons have the same type of digestive system as humans and can be feed human food. Years ago he would continually make loud barking noises(sounding like our dog at the time) and we figured out he just wanted what we we're eating, because once we gave him our food he'd stop "barking". So over the years he would eat what we ate besides he regular diet of seeds, fruit & vegatables, because we we're told he could. So now that we lost him we are looking more into the background of Amazons and are seeing that obesity is common among them and I only wish we would have read about this earlier and not had feed him so much, because we feel that might of been 1 of the reasons that shorten his life. I just advise people that decide on having one of these parrots, to please find out as much information that you can to take care of them properly and don't feel bad if they make you feel guilty for not giving them all of your table food(because they will carry on) just give them ALITTLE. Talk to them often, play music or put the T.V on when your not home (because they love different sounds and voices) and let them out of the cage (Herbie loved to walk around and follow us everywhere). I wish the best of luck to anyone that owns one of these amazing parrots, they are a friend for life. Please cherish everyday you have with them.
