We have had Zeus, our female cockatoo, since she was a baby ... her feathers were just coming in .. boy she was ugly! LOL We allowed the pet store to wean her until she dropped her lunch meal then I took her home and hand fed her the rest of the way. She is now aprox 3 going on 4 years now. She is the sweetest bird a person could ask for. She is not usual in the cockatoos as in that she is not a big yeller .. although when she actually does decide to scream she makes up for all her past silence ... right now she is over preening herself so we are trying to discover why she is doing this. But she is a big baby and would suggest to anyone looking for a snuggle bird to consider the Umbi ... but please research your purchase and understand the cockatoo before purchasing.

I have a peach fronted and a green cheeked conure. The latter for 2 years. I have taught my green cheek (Kosie) to respond on request. His feather are fully grown and he flies around the house as he wishes. One day he flew out by the back door left open and returned back 15 minutes later. I was at work at the time and only found out about this 2 days later. Kosie likes Tea and Coffee. He talks a lot but his words are not very clear. I had many types of birds for many years and i think that the green cheeked conures are among the most intelligent birds.

I have a Rainbow Lory named Jester (aprox 5 yrs old now)who is awesome. I bought her in a pet store (who is a most awesome store for birds in our area) aprox 3 years ago where she was left by a former owner. Jester was very cage territorial when first purchased. With alot of work (and battle worn hands mind you!!), Jester proved those problems could be overcome. Jester has a minimum vocab of 20 - 25 words/phrases with picking up new ones each year. The potential to learn seems wide open for Jester. Jester is a clown and an able bodied acrobat who has lots of love in her heart. Anyone who passes a lory over due to the report of the mess that comes with a lory (which can be contained with the use of a blanket or sheet over most of the cage ... throw in washer ... viola ... mess gone!!) is very short sighted and loses the chance to share their life with an outstanding companion bird.

I have 2 blu/golds. One is named Cookie (my first purchase ... she was formerly owned by another person and I bought her when she was almost two) who is now aprox 5 yrs old. Then I have Lacy, who is ten. I just purchased her about 3 months ago but have known of her for aprox 5 yrs. Lacy and Cookie (and most of my other birds) came from the same pet store. Lacy was purchased by someone who due to family situation needed to find another home for her. So she joined our flock a few months ago. Blu/Golds are my fav macaws. They seem to be the most laid back and open macaws I have had the pleasure to deal with. They aim to please the human they have contact with, they love to receive love as well as give it back. And when I stand back and see these two parrots, it amazes me that I am priviledged to have the trust that I do from them. I love all my birds and consider them my fids (feathered kids).

(PS ... Shay ... it is sometimes keeping these endangered species like we do that saves them from being extinct.)

I have the pleasure of owning a peachfront and My babies name is "O"! He is 4 yrs old and full of it. "O" is a very picky eater no matter what I introduce into his diet. "O" is so very talkative. He says hello, hello, "O", Ohio, Come here, Step up, Mommy loves me, kisses, and then a great big one, here kitty kitty kitty, awww mom, lets go, ut-oh, gimmie a kiss, Thank you, and so much more. I have owned many birds throughout the years but nothing quite like my "O". He loves to cuddle and give mommy kisses but heaven forbid i touch the back of his head LOL. All i have to say is peachfronts are remarkable little guys or gals and I would recommend one to any house hold.

My wife and I have a great,and beautifull Blue and Gold named KoKo.
He is three years old , and we have had him/her since he was fourteen weeks old. He gets along with our labrador and two cats very well. actually he is the boss among our animals, but they have a very symbiotic relationship that could be on "funniest videos" every day. He can say numerous words and phrases, such as: Hello Koko, uh-oh, bad bird, good bird, peek-a-boo and much more. Every time he hears a knock on the door or the phone ring he answers Hello! My wife and I can both handle him and encourage others to do the same under supervision so that he will not go one sided. He does favor me more, but I worked with him at the start to be handled by my wife and friends, and it has made him an important member of the family.

I have had my Double Yellow Headed Amazon for 7 yrs. His name is TUT. He is estimated to be 39 yrs.old. He follows me everywhere I go when he gets on the floor. When I sit on the couch, he gets on the back of it and he grooms my hair. Or takes out the ornamentations I may have in it! He gives me kisses and cuddles up to me. Although he may have his bad habits at times, I could not ask for a better partner in life! I love the way he talks,laughs,and sings.
