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 Pepper will be 25 years old this March and is as active as the day I got him, there is no slowing him down. He is lovable and funny, not to mention spoiled rotten.

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

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.

My Sugar is my first child. she is 8 months and we are working on her speech, thus far we can get her to mimic "pretty girl" quite well, but the funnest thing is that she want to talk unless it is night time and she is in her cage, or she is sitting in the bathroom while I am taking a shower, behind the curtin. I guess she is shy, how weird. Other than that she is the most lovable and cuddley thing I have ever had, dogs are not that snuggly!!! My Sugar loves to chase toes, shoes, socks, and slippers, she will puff them feathers up like she is sooo mad at them and chase you up and down the hall, I believe it is her favorite game, cause she will fly to the floor just to do this. She also hates/loves her diaper, hates to put it on, but loves to have it on once it is on cause she knows it means we are going to the pet store or going to see daddy. Can you tell she is my first child or what?!?

Sammy is nnow going on 17 years. I bought him when he was 7 weeks old and he had to be hand fed as he was not yet weaned. He has never grown out of being hand fed. Each morning he has a tablespoon of hot cereal with honey and applesauce. I started "potty training" him when he was young so now let me know when he wants down by either saying "Sammy wants to potty" or if I hold him, he nibbles my ear. He says quite a lot but has become quite agressive toward anyone who comes near me if he he feels intimated by them. I would not trade him for anything as he is a great companion but he does get noisy when he wants attention or wants to be outside the cage. We built a Madrona tree for him to climb around on. He would rather be on it than caged.

I have a 2 year old Nanday Conure, the name we have chosen is rascal.... and boy does he live up to his name!!! These birds can be wonderful companions!!! Mine just loves to cuddle with anyone who will hold a finger out to him! Recently we recieved another bird, a blue fronted amazon, and he is very talkative. Low and behold after spending a few weeks together (in seperate cages of course...) I just about had a heart attack when my little nanday said "comere"!!! he actually talked!!! a few days later as I reached to answer the phone, I was surprised by the lil sound behind me that said "Hello"!!!! This species of bird is widely accepted as a non talkative bird, capable of imitating simple sounds at best!! Guess I have an exception! Anyways, on occassion he does scream but its usually only for 10-20 seconds at a time, and not that often... We absolutely love him to death!!! He is very inquisitive and tends to explore alot around the house.. I think he has found every lil cubby hole we have lol!!! anyways, read up on these birds before you buy them as they take alot of love and attention to have a well mannered bird... sadly the blue fronted amazon we received came from an owner who could not provide the love and attention, and couldnt take anymore of the Biting... so looked to get rid of it... Im proud to say that he has shaped up nicely with a little TLC!!!

I have a Nanday Conure called Toby. I got him from an old lady who didnt want to give him away but had to because she couldnt let him out of his cage because of her dog. he is always coming out of his cage nowadays and he loves to go outside and sit with me in my aviary.
