I have 2 Alexs, they have more of a stand offish personality than other parrots (ie not always as cuddly) but by far more personality and individuality. They LOVE toys and things to chew on, I have had to use branches for perches as they love to chew through them (bit cheaper) and they love the McDonalds toys (so long as no small moving parts etc).
Excellent bird - splendid colours as well. though a lot of photos miss it their feathers have a nice silvery shine when the light hits it. They are very smart and have been known to be compared with African Greys on their abilities on several occasions. I think they are very much the underestimated parrot when it comes to abilities.

I have two parakeets- one male (Bud) and one Female (sissy). they seemed to have mated, of course. However, it seems that Bud has taken over the nesting; from making the nest to sitting on the eggs.
Also, I noticed that Sissy had laid an egg before the last two, then it was gone. I saw shredded (paper I had shredded for nesting) paper with yellow on it. The only thing I could surmise is that one of the birds ate the egg. Now Bud, as I said seems to be very protective of the eggs and she just stays out, but only to deposit the next egg and leaves the nest.

I enjoy them completely and refer to them as our children. Much to my friend's shagren. ha ha ha

Corky is her name, we got her from a breeder and what a beautiful girl she is. We wanted a male but we love her. She talks and is only 6 months old. We know she could get egg-bound at a certain age. Do you know what we could do to prevent that? Did you ever hear a bird say "Missed you Toosie" That is what she says when I come from work! Pretty neat! SK Cherry Grove, PA

I have a 6 year old Alexandrian.you would not believe he even barks like my dog and loves to talk on the cellphone. his name is Paako. I surely would love to have some more pictures of a male Alexandrian, so I can have them in my computer collection. Thank you very much. Karin.

I found my parakeet by my pond, scared to death and hungry too. I put him in a gerbil cage. When i put him in he ate for at least 20 minutes, crazy huh! This web site was a big help because i know nothing about a budgie. i am going to find the owner. this web site ROCKS!

I have a parakeet and his name is pretty boy. He is the best bird in the whole world. He can say so many things. He can say his name, ring like a phone, and do all sorts of noises that i do. He even laughs at you. He is awesome. i give him treats everday and i spoil him. He has lots of toys he plays with. I dont know why they say dont give them a mirror..because he loves it and he still pays attention to me. I have the coolest bird in the world.
