My husband and I have 2 male Rock Pebblers (Regent Parrots) and they are so loving. We also have Quakers and parakeets, budgies, and doves.. I have to say that our Rock Pebblers are our favorites. They are our babies! We would like to find a female for a companion. However they are very hard to find. If anyone knows where there are any females for sale, Please let us know... my husband takes them out in the back yard every morning and every evening, (their wings have been clipped) and they have the best time. They are very entertaining birds who love us just as much as we love them..

    I'm raising 3 month parakeets pair since 2 months and I lov them like babies, they are fully attached to me and love my company, the reason I think is that I give them my finger often to chew and play with and the male one don't leave it unless I force him to leave. Let them climb on you put your hand in cage so that they get familiar with your hand and your voice ,always call them and talk to them with soft voice,put them on your shoulder or lap, and most important try to hand feed them, my parakeets still love to eat from my hand althought they can eat with their own

Our female budgie just died very quickly. One day she was fine and the next day she seemed to deteriate and die within 2 hours. She had been nesting for the past month, but no eggs. Is it possible her eggs would not pass resulting in her death. We are very sad and her mate is very sad also.

    I read on another site that said when they get older they are supposed to change color so you can tell which one is a boy or a girl.

We have had our budgie for almost 5 years now. We found her starving and cold on the street and took her home. She seems very happy and content. However, she has layed 2 eggs in 2 weeks!! Is this normal? I read that it's like having her menstrual cycle and that they aren't fertilized. How many eggs do budgie's lay in their lifetime? What else should we do to make sure she remains healthy during this time.

    Its natural for birds to go through a cycle similar to a menstral cycle and some will lay eggs even if there's no male. Usually they do this when they are young, though older birds sometimes do too. A parakeet can lay between 4 - 9 eggs about 3 times a year, usually one every other day per laying. The biggest challenge is to make sure she gets enough calcium during this time. You can provide extra calcium with crushed eggs shells or egg food, usually available at pet stores. Make sure she gets enough sunlight for vitimin D so that she can absorb the calcium. This is a more stressful time on their body, so keep an eye on her to make sure she doesn't start having any problems, like egg binding. You can remove the eggs, but if she's interested in the eggs and maybe sitting on them, you can replace them with artificial eggs.

I rescued an older parakeet (male) in May of 2012. He at one point had a partner but has been by himself for quite some time now. (Im guessing a few years) Should I get another one? Will the age difference matter? He is skittish but has been warming up to me :) I just want him to be happy

    Birds are very social creatures and a companion could be a good thing. The only detriment is that he may decide he likes the new bird better than people, so may not be as warm with you, though with budgies once a friendship is established they usually stay friendly. His age shouldn't matter, but because he has been alone you want to be somewhat careful in introducing a new bird. The cage is the bird's domain and its risky to put another in until you have determined they both get along. Having a separate cage for each bird in the same room is a good idea initially until they warm up to each other.

    My first thought is that there is most likely no immediate danger. Are your birds kept in a cage high off the ground? If they are it is unlikely the mice could get into the cage. I am not sure if they would present a danger as far as airborne diseases go, however. Are you working on getting rid of the mice? If you are then I wouldn't worry too much. Just focus on getting rid of the mice.  I would caution you to not use chemicals in the same room as your birds though. Many birds have fragile respiratory systems and many household chemicals can cause them severe distress. If you do need to use any chemical treatments in the room they are in, move them to a separate room and don't put them back in for at least 3 days. Opening up windows would help clear the chemicals from the air too.

    Mint works amazing and none toxic. Mice hate the scent.  Mint tea bags in areas they go and planted outside will help drive them out.

    What type of environment is your Rosella kept in? Does she have a nest and did she lay the eggs laid in a nest? It sounds like she may be stressed. Some suggestions would be to ry moving her cage to an area with less noise if she's in a noisy area. Also make sure there are no drafts and that her cage is left somewhere with a comfortable temperature. Make sure she has plenty of clean food an water.

Hi. I was just woundering what kind of parakeet I got. They said it was a girl. But I think it is to young to tell because where the holes are it is pink in color. She is sold yellow with red/pink eyes. She is very small in size.Thanks for any feed back. This is my first bird.

    Best thing to do is to get him to a vet who can make a decision as to set the leg or possibly amputate. If there is no vet by you, and bone is not out of the skin, then take small wooden sticks and set the leg straight using the sticks and adhesive tape.  Place him in a small tupperware container or box that he can eat in but not necesaary for him to move around in.  That way pressure is off the leg.  Parrots are perfectly fine and do just great with one leg should it have to be amputated.  He can't and should not attmept to walk or fly (stress on leg) so that is why the small container or big towel on bottom of cage so he can stay down and place food and water on the bottom.  You don't want him to use the leg - you want to set it and let it heal.  Best thing is a vet though if you can get to one.

    Your parrot needs lots of patience, healthy attention, clean cage, correct diet and some toys and a routine. A stand that you can move around so that your parrot feels part of the family. It took my female Alexandrine 10 months to begin to trust me. It's hard work but she is happy and relaxed now and beautiful. Make no mistake, they are very demanding and they will demand your attention. Good luck!
