We had been looking for a timneh. after researching to find the right bird for our family, my husband works nights, i knew we could not have a squawker. We found a 10 yr old in the paper and called. the woman said it had not had a lot of attention and never would get on them. I decided to get him anyway. After 3 months he is now getting on my hand and crawls up to my shoulder where he loves me to rub his wings with my face, and I pet his head. He is such a joy to us, he is a big talker and says "want a peanut, by by, luv, good morning, krackle, good bird, luv bird, water, luv peanuts", and lots more. He wants something at every meal so we must share. they do need lots of attention but they are so much fun. I would never trade him for any other bird.

My Rainbow Lorie, "Pokaroo" or Pokie as we called him was a comical actor. Sadly he passed away on 12.17.04 due to liver failure. In his 9 years of life, I believe he thought he was people. Commanding a 50 plus word vocabulary he constantly has my wife and I in tears with laughter. He would call our two cats, my wife and I, our grand kids, and demand his supper. His greetings of "Hi Guys" when we returned home to "See Ya, See Ya Later" when we left for work will be sadly missed.
His loveable nature and the nature of the breed has us looking for another young bird to try and fill the void. I would whole heartily recommend a lory to anyone looking for a loveable companion...
On a side note, if your lory developes any sort of beak discolouration, tender feet or lameness take him to your avian vet.

My Pepper will be 25 years old this March and is as active as the day I got him, there is no slowing him down. He is lovable and funny, not to mention spoiled rotten.

I removed my three Alexandrines from their nest at two weeks. The three have totally different personalities. All treated the same with am and pm, one on one, as well as group attention. They love their baths and they demand I blow dry them afterwards (this was a daily occurance while I was hand feeding to keep their soft feathers from becoming so dry and mucky). The oldest one is the least friendly, very vicious inside the cage and mellow outside. The middle one, the smartest of all, picks up words constantly at 8 months old and the other two follow its lead. Middle one is very friendly and loves to kiss. Baby is simply a heart stealer. Baby is the clown of the group, extremely passive inside and outside of the cage. Loves to kiss and ride ATVs. Baby will stop playing and run over for a smooch then continue with playing. If a trainer takes a little time with these precious little bodies, marvelous beings can arise.

My parakeets are the only thing that keeps me alive, i honestly dont know what i would do without them. I got one and i didnt think that i would really like it, and if i didnt then my sister was going to keep it with her parakeets. but after about the first week of training and just giving it all of the love that i had to give then i finally decided that i would get more, well i have only been caring for them for about 3 months and over that little bit of time i already have 4 and i am going to get another one shortly! But anyone who feels that they need someone or something to love and for it to love you back i would highly recommend a parakeet or two!!! They are great.

I got to know (more-or-less) a Scarlet Macaw in the 1980s when I was staying in a hotel in the Yucatan. The building was in the depths of the forest, and had windows without glass and a ground floor that opened on all sides to the jungle. The bird, I imagine, was quite old. It had no cage, just wandered around the ground floor of the hotel. I never saw it leave the building. It yammered to itself incessantly, and had a broken wing which it dragged along the floor. Seemingly a very unhappy bird. It definitely did not like to be bothered; if you got in its way it would yowl at you. I always felt sorry for it. It think its life was going badly. I stayed at the hotel for a month, working on a screenplay, and saw a small army of tourists come and go. Everyone was introduced to the bird, and most ended up being quite wary of it. Sometimes, during dinner in the dining room, it would just stand at the far side of the room and watch the guests eat.

I have a six year old Yellow Collared named Elvis. Elvis is quite the character. He is not a good talker, but he makes up for it in his personality. He is a bit hyperactive, but a great pet.
