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.

I got Conga (yes,her name)when she was 2 mos. I was curious as what it would be like when she talked ...if ever! One morning I heard a very faint Hello. I felt like I did when my children said their 1st word. Best of all Conga was only 7 months old! Conga is now 4 yrs old and a chatterbox. She not just talks...she talks to us and at us. She goes from her sweet voice to her answer me right now voice. Favorite TV show...AFV...She laughs with the audience. I think she talked early because when she made a sound I would repeat it, soon she was repeating my sounds. Her first sound at 5 mos was grackle-grackle, so I too said it. As she would say, Conga good girl! We agree.

I have the best African Grey. He is one year old and I have had him since he was 3 months. He loves cheese and peppermint. In the morning he says "want some cheese". He loves his name (Chico) and has decided that is my name too. Although the other bird is called by his name (Peppy). They are the best birds and I enjoy spoiling him. He loves his showers and loves all the attention we give him. He makes me laugh wwhen he coughs and sneezes. He always says "bless you" after he sneezes. He also loves to get the sniffles. They are fun birds.

My mother has a female budgie she is about a year old. We had her for 6 months before. This bird is unlike the others I've read about. She wont eat fruit or veggies. She tries to bite you when you reach your hand in the cage. When you put a spray of millett in front of her mirror she will break it in half if it's in her way of seeing herself. If there is a toy in her cage she doesn't approve of she will break it or do something to it to where it will have to be removed. She doesn't talk. There is something she does have a big
