I found my first Parakeet one month ago today, and this last Friday September 16th I found the second Parakeet, and after going on this web site I have discovered that the first Parakeet I found is a Male and he is Yellow and named Stormy and the one I found on Friday is Blue and a Female, I named her Sunny. Who knows, there may come a day when I have baby Parakeets. They are in the same cage and get along real well.

Chrissy is our beautiful little lutino indian ringneck and her bright personality reflects her beautiful yellow plumage. When we got Chrissy as a baby we knew very little about ringnecks, but it didn't take long to fall totally in love with her. Chrissy is very tame and will take love from anyone. She loves to play and shred anything she can get ahold of and she talks up a storm. I have met many people who claim that ringnecks are not good companion birds and can be very mean but I think they are horribly misunderstood birds. We own everything from budgies to macaws and our ringneck is, hands down, the sweetest and most charming bird in our flock. The key to owning a happy, healthy, and sweet ringneck is making sure that you spend time with your bird every day because ringnecks don't take kindly to being ignored (You wouldn't either if you were someones pet)! I think one of the only drawbacks to owning ringnecks is their loud, shrill call that sounds like "BAM BAM BAM" but this noise can be kept to a very minimal amount when properly taken care of. Overall these are awesome birds and charm their way into the hearts of just about anyone, even those who don't really care for birds!

We got our Derbyan Parakeet in January of 2005 from my Sister-in-law for $60.00 (What a steal, Huh?)We named her Mary Jane (M.J. for short) she is 2 years old and the apple of Daddy's eye, she loves when I sing to her. Thank you for having this Derbyan site.

I found out my parakeet is very high maintenance. He craves attention and when he doesn't get any attention he bites. I found different kinds of whistles that he likes. I talk to him all the time now. When I'm not home I play the radio for him. My parakeets name is pockets.

Budgies are friendly, heartwarming birds. They make good friends as well as pets. I once had one that would sit on my shoulder and nuzzle my chin all day long. When I went upstairs to breakfast, and the bird was left alone, it decided to take matters into its own hands. The bird slipped under the door crack, flew around the kitchen, and landed on my head.

I have an alexanderine parakeet and I am 9. My alex parrot's name is chomper amd he is just over 12 months old. He is starting to talk. I would love to get him out of his cage but I'm scared he'll fly into something and hurt himself. He loves eating corn. when he talks he says "what are ya doin hey". At night when he is ready to sleep I sneak over to his cage and pat him on his greasy beak. I have seven other birds and they all copy each other!

I don't know why, but having a pet was always speacial to me. Even if it was just a little fish or something. I never thought that I would buy a bird. I just kept asking my mom (and I am only like, 9) if I could get a puppy. My dad is allergic so she always said no and that they are a waste of money. So we always had a fish or two or like a small type of animal with no fur.(That would include lizards,frogs and such.....) But one day, my mom suggested we buy a bird. So, today I have two blue budgies name Susu and Soso. They always seem to play tug of war with the chew toy. They are so precious! In a few months or after I get REALLY used to having birds, I'll have my own aviary and I will start breeding birds! Yay!

Your site is very good. I would not have known that the cabbage family was bad for budgies, although I have never given it to them.

I have only had my Parakeet for 7 days, I had noticed her outside with the wild birds that I feed and then it started to rain and the Parakeet was trying to find shelter, I went out and picked her up, soaking wet, named her Stormy and she seems very healthy for being caught in a horrible rain storm. She is a very happy bird and I am so glad that I found her and brought her into the house.
