Morgan is a three year old Meyers with tremendous coloring. She is friendly with all who belong in the household and those who visit. She gets along well with our four dogs and mimics the whistle to call them into the house, as well as the "meow" for the two cats. She does not speak, but can mimic about ten distinct household sounds. The introduction of Morgan to the household was a learning experience for the dogs and cats, who were very curious and had to be educated that the bird was not for their amusement. She is now carefully guarded by the dogs who sleep by her cage. Her roomy cage is housed in the heart of the living room so that she can enjoy the daily routine of all. She doesn't "scream" but whistles and chirps contentedly, especially at nature programs when birds are calling. Her favorite daily routine falls on the cool FLorida days where she sits on the porch and calls out to the wild birds while swinging on her rope toy.

I got my parakeet almost three years ago. He is treated like a human baby! my husband and I do not have children, so needless to say we treat this screaching mimi like our son. I spend quite a bit of money on him. I buy him new toys on a weekly basis so he wont get bored. God forbid if he doesnt have a new honey log to munch!! He doesnt stay in his cage.(i cant bare to keep him locked up)
he has a perch made of rope suspended from the ceiling with a lot of swings and mirrors hanging from them. what can i say i love this little feathered creep!

Hi, I bought a sun conure about four months ago and my life has not been the same since. My fiance and I named her Lilly. She is the sweetest little bird. Lilly loves to "hide" underneath my shirt and follows me everywhere, usually on my shirt, head, or hand. She often tries to mimic me, for example, whenever I brush my teeth she will sit there and shake her head and she loves to take showers. Unlike other conures that I have read about, she loves people. My friends often come over just to hold her. I have never seen so much personality wrapped up in a bird. Something else she does is whenever the door opens she squaks until I call her name. She's my little "guard bird"!

I adopted my double yellow headed (dyh) amazon about 4 years ago thru a neighbor who was bird sitting for an "alleged" breeder. The owner didn't like the bird, and the bird HATED the owner. I kept Homer (my dyh amazon) for two weeks and could not let him go back. ONE time the former owner came to see him because he could not believe Homer sat on my shoulder or gave babies kisses, etc., and the minute the man walked in my house Homer lost it and was very, very upset. Homer was supposed to be about 8 or 9 years old when I got him (at a discount because Homer was a "mean" bird) and now he is upset if my 7 year old doesn't speak to him when he gets home from school! What a mean bird! Also, he's in love with my dauther in law, good taste in women!I used to walk him to a neighbor who was dying of cancer at the time and he sat on my shoulder thru the woods, up the back stairs and right to my friend. Homer went right to our neighbor every time we visited. He's not always verbal but has body language & behaviors; but he has a family, and I have chosen not to ever breed him. I find sites and play the wild (free) amazons for him. He's got a band aound one leg, no doubt hatched & raised in captivity but he's part of our family, yet I still see how he responds to the sounds of the free birds. I feel guilty, but know he can never live in the wild. I am glad he is with us now. At least for now he gets to rule the roost. He supposedly has been DNA sexed but I have never seen the papers. That doesn't matter since we won't breed him and he is just one of us. Would never had imagined I could love one feathery critter so much. He is, for all his crabby ways, a life long friend.

My black-masked lovebird was given to me by his previous owner after his mate, a peach-faced female, escaped and flew away. He's adjusted quite well to being by himself, but makes sure I give him lots of attention whenever I'm around! (For such a little bird, they sure can chirp LOUD!) I bought him a little 3-way mirror at Petco that he spends hours in front of, chirping to and pecking at the "other bird" on the other side of the mirror. That and providing him with a variety of other entertaining bird toys keep him busy and happy throughout the day. So key to keeping a single lovebird is to give them lots of love and attention, and a mirror really helps too!

I visit my Javanese massue for a massage each month and they rear a White eyed conure , which resembles a miniature Yellow naped Amazon parrot. It is really adorable, tame and affectionate with strangers. Each visit, whenever I go near it, this cutie bends his head to let me scratch. It melts my heart to see how his feathers around his face and neck fluff up and makes me want to own one as soon as possible.

I have a blue-front amazon and he is 2 and a half years old. His name is Loru. He gets mad if you don't say "hi" or "hello" to him when you come back home. He does not live in a cage, he lives in a very big open play gym that my dad made. I find it a bit cruel to leave birds in a cage especially when no one is hardly home. He never gives us a problem when he's on his play gym exept when we go out for about 10 hours and he will go downstairs and start looking for us since we watch tv alot. I have a bulldog and the bird seems to get along with him, but my dog is scared of him. These birds are very easy to train to talk and do tricks but you must start from when he is young.
