I have a parakeet named Jade. He is the sweetest bird! Last month we almost lost him to a thyroid condition. His thyroid became so enlarged that he had difficulty breathing and swallowing. He was listless, wobbly, shivering, and ruffled. He kept acting like he was trying to clear something from his throat. We were very concerned, and did not want this fabulous little guy to die, so I took him to an avian vet. I learned there that birds that eat strictly a seed diet need an iodine supplement. If they don

I love my parakeet. He is the sweetest bird that I have ever had. As soon as we brought him home he sat on my finger while I set up his cage. The cutest thing that he does is when we wake up he wants me to take the off towel that I use to cover the cage with at night. But then if I walk away and forget to open the blinds he will yell at me in a high pitch squaking sound telling me to open the blinds. As soon as I open them he stops and will start to sing gently like a happy bird. I just love that. I like to walk away and not open them on purpose just to kind of tease him and I think he likes that too. Parakeets are the best!

Hi I have a budgie named Nacho. He is a shy bird but cute. If you are getting a budgie, spend alot of time with it so it will trust you. I would recommend them to everyone since they are such nice and loving birds.

A friend of mine lost his plum head hen, but the cock has bonded with a Quaker parrot. I think these birds are beautiful but they are still quite rare and hard to find, as my friend would love to find his bird a partner.

I have 7 parakeets but Im only gonna talk about 1. My third parakeet is PARADISE. He has a yellow face, dark blue tail, a bright green body and his wings lined with black. I had Paradise for maybe 2 years or so, but he is my all time favorite. But, if I count all the parakeets I ever had, I would have ten. Now I am down to 7, but out of ten Paradise is my favorite little buddy. The first time I ever took him out of the cage, he looked at me and jumped on my leg. Then climbed up my shirt and onto my shoulder. He cuddled up in my hair. He just loves to snuggle in my hair or in my shirt. After a couple of hours of playing Paradise was pooped, but we wanted to keep playing with him so we put him in a small car and he fell asleep in the back 2 seats. it was so adorable. Then we pushed the car around our room. Then we tacked up one of the barbie horses I had and put him on it. He just fell asleep on it. It was the cutest thing in the world. He was so pooped. He just fell asleep wherever we put him.

Parakeets can be extremely cheery birds if kept well. I have rescued birds that have been found in the wild and managed to tame them yet again. Have perserverance and you will have one of the most loyal pets you can have. I sometimes see my birds as more of a character and more fun to be with than even my dogs, especially my red bellied parrot.

Just lost my Indian Ringneck (Casey)and her loss affected me more than any other pet that I have had. I had her 12 years and from day one she loved me like no other. Her personality and spirit exceeded her size. She would sway on her perch and put her little head under her wings when she saw me. I absolutely loved that bird and I am desperately trying to find another one. I have had many pets in my lifetime including birds but none have touched my heart like her. Highly recommend
