About 7 years ago I was returning from lunch at my place of employment when I heard a loud noise from the tree above. As I was looking to see what it was, this beautiful young bird flew to my shoulder. I have had her since then. I thought it was a male but a year ago she left me 4 eggs so I guess I was wrong. I have to say that she is the joy of my life. She is loving, playful and spoiled rotten. She has captured my husband's heart as well although he thinks she gets more attention than he does. At any rate, Nanday's are wonderful, mine, Nikki, is seldom really noisy, only when she wants to go to bed and then she screams "Night night" or when she wants to be uncovered or anytime anyone comes to the door or walks down the street or the icecream man goes by. She also mimics the sound of the garage door opening and says several things although she speaks very quietly when talking. Nanday's are very easy to train and a joy to have.

Hello, My name is SAM - I'm a 8 month old Sun Conure. My owner JJ is 5 Years old. JJ's parents bought me as their family pet about 6 months ago. I can say the following words: "Hello, Pat, Tickle Tickle, Come on". I can also "wolf whistle" thanks to JJ's father!! I live in Australia along with my owner JJ and her parents. JJ named me Sam because I have not had my DNA test as yet to see if I am a boy or girl. JJ's father reckons I'm a boy because that would balance out the males and the females in the house. Anyway, time to go now, it's way past my bed time - "good night Sam".

I have both Zebra and Society Finches, and while I love them all, the Society Finches are much friendlier, and their singing is much softer on the ears and very unique.
Sweet birds, as can be seen due to the fact they take care of other finches' babies. :)

I was given a sun conure 15 years ago. I never had a bird, and this little baby and I had alot to learn about each other. Well, we became the best friends ever..... She broke her beak at 2 and because I wanted the best for her she was with me everywhere for 13 years. I found a Vet. that gave me a diet that she could deal with because she couldn't eat seeds anymore She loved to play and really loved to cuddle. She got her pilots Lic. with me, she's been camping, hiking, horseback riding, sailing, driving a big rig with my friend, she has been to all the western U.S. states. Even with no beak she learned that the world was hers if she wanted. She died 2 months ago of cancer. I have never had a spirit that touched my soul has she did. I will forever love her and to this day miss her with all my heart. They are the best compaions I have ever had. I'm starting to look for another, but I don't want the new one to fill her shoes. He/she will have to make his/her own mark on my heart. B

I have 4 finches in the cage on a screen porch in southern FL. so that I may observe their quarky behavior thru the passs-thru kitchen window. They love banana peels & 1/2 of hard boiled egg still with the shell. Last month they raised 4 young babies, with 1 out of the nest at a time until the baby went from a hopping stage to fluttering stage. I gave them a little ladder to hop from the cage floor back to the nest in the top of the cage. One finch is always the most curious, another the most scared. They definately have their own personalities! The birds are a great gift for a sick friend! But I suggest that you clean the cage when you visit. To minimize the scattered seed mess, I put 4 inches of window screen around the entire bird cage & hold it closed with a wooden clothespin.

I have 10 yr old sun conure named Joshua that I had taken in as foster bird. I had him about a day and fell in love with him. The only problem I have with him is that he will not go to anyone else. I know that I had over bonded with him when I first got him. I have tried everything to get him to like other people, mostly my husband.
He is so loving towards me. He loves to play peek-a-boo and have me chase him around on the couch. I bought him a couple of doll tents to play in when he is out of his cage and on the couch with me.
My friends and family say I have lost my mind because of the way I treat Josh. He will not eat a lot of fruits and vegs so I feed him baby food out of the jar.
There are days I can't wait to get home after work to get him out a give love and kisses. I just can't imagine my life without him.

We have a cocktiel named JoJo. He is a very friendly bird, always seeking attention. I am so glad I got a cockatiel, he is the best friend that I could have!

I have just recently gotten 2 budgies, jack-jack and skylar. I love having out of the cage play time! Especially since skylar loves to try to nussle the back, of my neck almost like she's tell me I'm the best owner she's ever had! I just wish I would have gotten them sooner than what I did because they are AWESOME!!

I just got two parakeets from my aunt because they work alot and wont be able to take care of them. Ones a boy and the others a girl. they are sooo cute!!! but around the 2nd, 3rd day after we got them i noticed the boy was acting strange. I told my mom and stuff but no one believed me, but now that I've read the last comment I think that he might have a thyroid condition!! Hes been shivering, ruffled, and hes acting as though hes coughing up a hair ball! I'm very worried and I hope hes OK so as soon as my mom and dad come home (cuz I just found out whats wrong) I have to tell them and see if we could find an iodine supplement or some kinda fruit or something that the bird will eat that contains iodine... I'm so worried and sad, I've only had them for a week and one might die...
