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 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.

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.
