Hi, I always had budgies since I was around five but never really bothered (unfortunately) to learn about them.But nowadays I have a little greenish male budgie. He is four and I was beginning to worry about him because somebody told me that budgies live until 6 years. Anyway, he is a great little guy who loves to fluff himself up and play mock fights with me. He would bob his head and pump his little beak on my finger while making funny noises. But he never pecks. Anyway, thanks for this great website, I know a lot about my Golden Retriever and now I am beginning to train myself on my budgie and I hope to make our relationship better! Thanks

I have a green Indian Ringneck at home named Kiki and she(or we think it is a she. We will not be able to tell intil he reaches the age of 2 years old. Then if he gets a blackish ring around his neck, then it will be a male. If not it is a female) is a true character. She loves to be on top of his cage more than anything.(even more then spending time with me) She will kind of put out her wings and start pinning her eyes and will walk around her cage like she owns it. If you are looking for a sweet bird that will not bite a lot then a male ringneck is a good option. Female ringnecks tend to be more apt to bit.

I love Quaker Parrots. I raise them and there are so many different colors (and more and more colors being developed). Each has its own personality.
A Quaker is a fantastic bird!

Skittles was my first Quaker parakeet,an adopted bird from a home that
neglected her.She was very cage territorial, but with lots of love,patience,and attention,she has become my best friend.She says a few words that I taught her,imitates my laughter, and loves rock n roll music,dancing along on top of her cage.Hannibal, my second Quaker,I bought from a local pet shop as a baby.Hannibal is a cute,
but clumsy bird,with a sweet disposition.He to is learning how to talk and says "Thankyou" when I change his water,or give him fresh food.Hannibal loves to beat up his yarn and bell toy,and I frequently hear him ringing his bell,chattering merrily away in his funny way.
Nebbish my third Quaker,was also a rescue bird,and was in a bad way when he came to live at my house.

A very nice bird. Relatively quiet bird compared to other types of Parakeets. I highly recomend it for any veteran or first time bird owner!

I have an adorable white parakeet
with speckles of blue on her far lower half . Her name is Birdella
or Birdie for short. She loves to give me 'kisses' and eats spahgehtti . Her favorite movie star is Paulie and she has a
'friend ' named Popeye . She is my best friend and loyal companion . BUDGIES ARE GREAT!!!

I am new to the bird world. It began the day a very brave and tough little female parakeet, who survived being outside from September 2003, until January 22, 2004, was too cold...too tired to feed at our wild bird feeder. We had tried many times during that time frame to catch her...she would have NO part in it. She seemed to love her freedom. When we brought her in, her left foot was black from frostbite...her right foot red and swollen. Within a day or two she lost her left foot. The circulation in her right foot was damaged too and her foot began to darken with gangrene.

Even throughout the loss of her feet, she continued to thrive inspite of the obvious discomfort. I live in the Chicago area and anyone who knows the kind of weather we had this year will think she is a miracle. Her will to live and survive the sub-zero weather here in January, only proved she was well worth the effort to make comfortable until her dying day. This tough little bird has managed to adjust to a life without her feet (they were frostbit beyond repair by the time we could finally catch her). Through trial and error, we have found a way to make her a happy and comfortable bird in her modified cage.

Her chirps and singing in the morning is music to my ears. As she continues to adjust to a footless life, we will continue to expand her horizons to a more normal existence. For now, she seems content to be in the cage. No, she cannot walk but she has figured out that she can hop from spot to spot by propelling herself with the bottom part of her legs.
