My conure, also named Peaches (name give by previous companion), was bought in Eureka, CA. It was around 3 years old when bought in 2002. It demands attention in the mornings and can get very vocal. Other than that, it is a sweet and caressing bird. It nibbles at my neck, hair, lips, nose....well, all over my face. I ask it "gimme a kiss" and it leans over to kiss me while making a kissing noise simultaneously. Whenever it is fed, it says "thank you" several times and it loves its showers! It mimics a cats "meow" and makes chicken noises. Peaches has been a good addition to the family

P.S. Peaches has been having fits in the morning and afternoon and screams almost non-stop for a while. It screams continuously in intervals. Any suggestions or comments on what can be wrong or what i can do will be appreciated

Double Yellow Headed Amazons are a great companion, but to understand and co-exist with this species you must understand they must have their personal space. They have a "bubble" that surrounds them and if you understand and respect the amazon quirks these parrots can be a great companion. At least in my expereiance.

My mollucan cockatoo Sulu is one of the most active birds I own. if she is not chewing all the wood in the house, she is screaming "I am cute, you are not" at the top of her lungs. She is just like a two year old and she makes you work hard, but she is worth the effort.

I have had my bird for only 5 months. Though he is 13 years old and fully trained, he became hard to handle after a dog attacked him and now he has become nice. He hangs out with my 2 parakeets Scotty and Reggie.

Hello:

In the southern part of the island of Puerto Rico, in the city of Ponce were I live; there are flocks of the spice bird. We can see it
in the urban area, also picking the seeds left by the pet birds.
They eat the seed of the called "Hierba de Guinea", which is a grass
originally from Guinea in Africa; brought by the spaniards to feed
cattle.

yes, I am new to having parakeets I am semi retired and have never experienced such a relationship with pets like, Moe,Larry,Curly & Ghost. I started in April and bought one every month, as I saw fit, I gave them the freedom they needed with a gym, a 10x10 room. I think I have 2 males and 2 females, they seem happy and I cannot wait till I get home to humor them and me. they are very tame except,the ghost, she flutters like a maniac. I know they are talking but I do not understand, Anyway this is a great site, I really learned a lot and was so happy to read about other pet owners who respect and love them as I do. PS they love the radio, I leave it on all the time, oldies of course! I would like to hear from some Budgie owners with their experiences. Thanx

we found our first senegal almost a year ago. her name is Lucy. she is about 4 years old and I have to say that she is an absolute delight to have. recently we have purchased another female senegal about the same age and a young male meyers parrot and they are all just a delight to have. now that we have discovered these birds we will never own anything other than this family of parrots.

I HAVE A GREEN CHEEK CALLED CHEEKO! HE HAS BEEN WITH ME SINCE HE WAS 8 WEEKS OLD,HE IS 7 YEARS OLD NOW. LIKE ALL OF THESE FASCINATING BIRDS CHEEKO IS QUITE A CHARACTER. HIS VOCABULARY CONSISTS OF "CHEEKO", "CHEEKY", "WHATS THAT" AND HIS FAVOURITE "SHUT UP". EVEN THOUGH HE HAS BEEN WITH ME PRACTICALLY ALL OF HIS LIFE, HE PREFERS TO BE WITH MY HUSBAND ALL THE TIME! WE THINK HE IS IN HIS MATING SEASON AT THE MOMENT AND HE HAS LITTLE SEXUAL INUENDOS WITH HIS TOY. HE EVEN REGURGITATES ON MY HUSBAND. HE LOVES TO FOLLOW US AROUND ALL DAY-HE IS VERY NOSEY. HIS FAVOURITE FOODS ARE ICE-LOLLIES AND SWEETCORN BUT WILL NORMALLY EAT ANYTHING WE EAT BASICALLY. HE LOVES TO HIDE INSIDE NEWSPAPERS, BEHIND CUSHIONS AND EVEN INSIDE OUR CLOTHES.
BATHTIME CONSISTS OF SITTING IN THE KITCHEN SINK UNDER THE COLD RUNNING WATER. HE LOVES IT AND WE LOVE TO WATCH HIM. I WOULD NEVER EVER PART WITH CHEEKO. JUST ONE LOOK AT HIM PUTS A SMILE ON MY FACE ESPECIALLY WHEN HE SLEEPS. I LOVE MY LITTLE CHEEKO.
