Jasmine is the second parrot to live with my family. I sold the earlier one as the rest of the family had not bonded with her (their fault). We looked for two full years before selecting this birdie girl. She was hand raised, hatched in August 2000. We brought her home in Dec. Everyone can hold her, although she only allows a select few to pet her. She sings dozens of songs, often jumbled together, "I'm a little teapot, happy birthday to you, we come from the spirit, etc" When she first hears my hubby and myself waking up in the morning she starts saying "Good Morning" in the most cheerful voice. I could go on and on. We really love her. She has taken road trips with us from Oregon to Minnesota. She is out of her cage most of the time when we're at home. I think if you have a desire to nurture, a parrot is a perfect pet. It's like having an eternal toddler in the house, complete with occasional meltdowns. You must always be alert to their moods and signals. We've had her over 7 years and rarely get a nip. She delights most of the visitors to our house. I encourage you to get this species of a bird, but only if you will enjoy spending time with them every day.

I adopted Rocky when he was about a year old and have had him for three years. He was a very frightened bird when he came to live with us but with a lot of patience and love he now trusts us and is very loving. Rocky is a Panama Amazon and everyone has said how talkative their bird is BUT Rocky has never tried to mimic any words. He can mimic the car alarm and he will occasionally laugh if we are laughing but he has never talked. We interact with him all day because we are retired and he gets a lot of attention but he doesn't seem interested in talking. He has free run of the house and will go all over the house. He loves young girls with blond hair and he doesn't like men at all. We love him and think he's great. We wonder if there anything we can try to get him to talk. We have tried treats and recorders and constantly repeating ourselves, but nothing has worked. We love him whether he talks or not, but everything we have read says they are great talkers.

My boyfriend and I have a Mexican Red Head parrot. His name is Chico. He is a very loving bird to myself. But when it comes to my boyfriend, Chico will allow him to pick him up but then quickly flies back to his cage. However when I pick Chico up he will let me pet him on his back, pokes holes in my shirt with his beak, groom me by running his beak through my hair, and climbs up to my shoulder. He says, "What?" which I think he gets from me asking him, "what are you doing?" Chico also coos like a dove and chatters like he is trying to say something but it isn't legible. We got Chico from a couple that never had time to spend with him. They kept him locked in his cage and wouldn't let him on their shoulder. When We brought Chico home he was very shy at first and ran away when we tried to pick him up. Now he loves to perch and sleep on top of his cage. I never close him up unless he gets into one of his flying moods or we have alot of people over. When I come home from work and don't greet him he will let me know he wants attention by flying to thw kitchen window or flying into my bedroom. He is like a different bird than when we first got him. We have had him for a year now, he is around four years old. We love him very much and look forward to being with him for many more years. Origionally Chico was suspose to be my boyfriends bird but has bonded with me instead.

My parrots name is dill. He just turned a year old this month. He is a very good talker. He loves to sing to oldies music.
He has managed to learn everyone in the house's names and we live with 9 other people, 5 dogs, and two cats.
Funny thing is my bird's name is dill but he calls me dilly O. But I still enjoy him and he says dilly O more than any other name, so I know I am his favorite.
He loves to be held and hung upside down. He loves to cuddle and have his neck and back rubbed. I am so glad I got this bird. He was expensive but oh my gosh he was worth every penny.

My friend brought me a orange winged amazon 5 days ago, she 10 months old! She's beautiful, I named her harriet aka mad harry! The only thing that concerns me is she will let me scratch her head through the cage but won't let me go near her inside the cage, will this change? I've never had a parrot, I'm trying not to take things to fast for her. Also she can say hello but only ocassionally unless there's a man in the house, she goes mad giggling saying hello really trying to get their attention! Will she have this bond with me eventually? thanks guys! Send me an email if you can help. zarzee@hotmail.co.uk

I adopted a BFA about 15 years ago..severely abused and neglected. It has taken me this long to undo some of the things that have been done and still he is unhandlable. In fact just today I got out my welding gloves so that I could clip his nails. But we still talk and play simple games. TIP: For every bad habit or abusive behavior learned by a BF, you'll spend years undoing them.

I purchased my Double yellow headed parrot as an egg, brought her home at 4 months, and fed her formula until she was old enough to feed herself. I have owned her for about 8 yrs now and I absolutely adore her. It's true that they are very noisy in the morning. If she hears my voice even slightly in the morning, she will be screaming for hours. She is extremely friendly but is rather aggressive and will bite if she is approached by a stranger. She speaks very well, and is no longer a pet to me but rather like my child. I adore her very much and am very pleased at how easily maintained she is. I wouldn't recommend a parrot if you have no time to give it attention because they require massive attention, and do get depressed very easily when they are ignored (a common sign of this is plucking their own feathers). She has a macaw cage and plenty of toys to keep her busy, although she is very picky with what she actually chooses to entertain herself with.

What a coincidence, our Bluefront is also named Joey! And he also HATES hats! (and gloves) We think he was wild caught, and associates hats and gloves with bad treatment. He is fifteen now, to the best of our knowledge, and developed some personality problems when going thru puberty. Now he bites me whenever he can get hold of me, but has no problems with my daughter, to whom he seems to have transferred all his affections. Wish I knew what he thinks I did to him!!!

My family and I just got a new Double yellow headed Amazon. Her name is Ophelia and we think she will be great to own at our home. Just from hearing what the others wrote they sound like a joy and a lot of fun! Ophelia has a wide variety of words. She sings the funniest things! Like ,"It's too hot for chickens!" or ,"Yellow bird!". Before we bought Ophelia she was owned by a couple.I'm sure they just adored her! They went to pick the bird up at the couple's house because they could not care for her properly. I am sure they hated to see her go but it was best for the bird! I want to get her a leash and a collar. Ophelia is about six years old and hopefully will live for many years. I also hope that we can have all the great moments you have had wiith your birds and even more.
