I just received a moluccan cockatoo whos name is lucifer from an animal rescue. his previous owner had him for 13 yrs and she passed away. he seems very sad and doesnt want me touching him. he will let me feed him from my hand, but that is about it.
i think he is lonely and would love to get him a friend. i spend alot of time with him but i think he needs more. if u know of anyone who cant care for theirs, please email me at: mindymm24@bellsouth.net thank u,

I found a flock of wild Nutmeg Mannikins feeding in a brushy area near a 7-acre lake in southern San Jose, California (behind 5750 Almaden Expressway, San Jose, 95118) on Friday, August 6, 2004, about lunchtime.

(There have been flocks established in the area since 1998 - see http://home.att.net/~redknot/almadenbirdlist.htm, bottom of page.)

HAYDEE FROM MIAMI, FLORIDA - 2004-07-30
I BOUGHT A BABY BUDGIE YESTERDAY FOR MY FRIEND IGGY AS A BIRTHDAY GIFT. I PICKED HIM OUT OF ABOUT 50 PARAKEETS AND HIS COLOR IS TURQUOISE LIKE THE OCEANVIEW FROM IGGYS BALCONY FACING MIAMI BEACH. I HAD CHANGED HIM THREE TIMES TRYING TO FIND THE PERFECT FEATHERS AND JUST THE DEEPEST OF COLOR... TOOK OFF WITH THIS NEW LITTLE FEATHERED FRIEND AND KEPT HIM OVER NIGHT IN MY APARTMENT IN HIS NEW CAGE, WITH HIS NEW TOY. THE NEXT DAY INTRODUCED HIM TO HIS NEW OWNER... AT FIRST MY FRIEND WAS HESISTANT TO HAVING A PET, MUCH LESS A BIRD. BY THE TIME AN HOUR HAD PASSSED HE HAD HIM OUT OF THE CAGE AND ON HIS SHOULDER. ALREADY ENJOYING A TRULY FRIENDLY BIRD AND HOPEFULLY A COMPANION FOR MANY YEARS.

My 6 month old Green-cheek, Maui was so playful. He loved to be cuddled and be fed apples. Although green-cheeks are quieter than most conure breeds, they do have a tendency to be nippy. You can remedy this by gently grabbing the sides of their beak and saying "NO BITE" in a firm voice. In order for this to work you must be consistent and never let them get away with it. I only had my presious Maui for about 8 weeks he was the best little friend I could ask for. Sadly, Maui was killed by our cat when he escaped from his cage to visit me in the next room. Even though I only spent a fraction of what his life could have been I enjoyed his comapany and his memory will live on forever.

I just purchased a lutino cockatiel a week ago. He is a male( a blood test was done on him) he is 3 months old. His name is "Chingy" and he is so precious. He eats from your hand and he loves to be kissed. He learned to whistle what I wanted him to in 3 short days. He is going to be a eaiser learner and I look forward to each day with him.

I have a 27 month old Harlequin, "Amazing Grace", that I believe God sent to me just before I was to lose my constant companion, "Rocky" an 11yr old Rottweiler, to cancer. As dogs live such short lives compared to how long we would love them, I did not know how I would bear this lose. But Grace loved me and let me love her, even though I was a first time bird parent and was sometime clumsy and even alittle afraid. This wonderful soul gave me a reason to know life goes on and it is what we do with it that shows tribute to the ones that go away to soon. Grace, is the love of my life and if someone would have tried to tell me how loving, funny, sad, into everything she can find, life we would have coming, I would not have believed it. So, Thank you for my little girl and her laughter and I know she is and always will be to me. Boo to all that do not give so called hybrids their place in this world as they are gifts from God himself!

I have three of these wonderful birds, two girls and one boy. I am their mom and they are my kids. They each have their own personality. Every morning I get the "good mornings" and we begin our morning ritual which involves cleaning their cages and preparing their meals. They are practically always outside of their cages while I am home. But when I leave the house, I put them back in their cages and the long good-bye begins. They start with "bye-bye" and "I love you" and it never fails to make me feel bad for leaving them, even for an hour. If you are thinking of getting a grey, please note that they are extremely intelligent and with that comes the need for lots of mental stimulation that you will always have to provide them with. In return, you will get the love and affection of a life-long friend.

He might be a she yet, but Bobby, my young Green Cheeked conure, is curious and intelligent. I do not want his curiosity to kill him. I lost my last 2 birds, cockatiels, to escape. Once he gets outside, it will only mean freedom. Watch doors, incoming visitors, open windows. It takes a lot of luck to get one back.
To the person with the water-shy bird: your bird is now afraid of the spray. Let him become curious on his own. If the cage is left in a quiet warm place, he will eventually take his own bath. You may have to do this for several days, especially in the case of your bird. That means do not disturb. They are smart enough to know when they need one.
These birds learn readily if they are not coerced. The best way is to incorporate their natural behaviors and follow their leads. Listen to your bird! Good luck!
