My sons and I just got a parakeet. She is a cutie. She is blue and we named her Spirit. She is already finger trained and loves to crawl on us. The funny thing is my cat is scared of her!

I recently purchased a severe macaw (sex unknown) in spite of the fact that I had been looking for an african grey. The beauty, playful nature, and small size of this macaw overwhelmed me on sight. Once home, it has been mostly quiet, loves to be out (not necessarily on me - but out of the cage)and became extremely handle-able after two days in its new environment. By the third day, it was eating with my family and I at the dinner table! We now call it Cheetoh (the first food item it took from my hand) and it is as if it was always part of our family.

Hi everyone! I have 2 parakeets, but in seperate cages, I heard that if they are together they will not speak. Ive had the birds for about 2 weeks now, but they still seem afraid to stay on my finger after countless hours of training? they also refuse to eat fresh greens and their feathers are becoming fluffy? Can anybody suggest anything? thank you lots

Seeing this picture reminds me of my first parrot- obtained in 1968 when I was 14 years old. What a great friend, wonderful pet it was! Certainly it was a captured bird, and had spent time on a farm in its native land. It never talked a word, but had a full repetoire of farm animal sounds, from "quack" to rooster crows, dog barking, cow mooing, etc. I had the great imagination (not!) to name the bird Quack. He needed no training, but was tame from day one. Would lay on his back in my hand, ride the handle bars of my bicycle, "read" books with me, obligingly puncturing the right front corner of each page as turned. With Quack I never needed a bookmarker! His attempts at human speech were mumbles more than articulations. The bird had a built-in clock. He ONLY screamed when he knew I was due home from school. Often, as I walked the last block to home that was when the bird set up his raucous scream- to be let out of the cage and be with me.

Hi Kathryn,
I regards to your question, I have a 3 year old Sun Conure named Gazoo, about the only thing I can get him to say is "Hello" which he learned all on his own when he was about 10 months old. Beside "Hello" he has learned no other words.

From my understanding Sun Conures are not very good talkers, but I have discovered they are good at mimicing sounds, and they are a ton of fun. Although Sunnies are not good talkers, but like all parrots they are very intelligent, and the more you hang out with your bird the more you will appreciate their intelligence, whether or not he/she ever learns to talk much.

Best Regards,
Bill
