My mom and I had a parakeet named AL he would say pig, beast, boopers, come here, give me, what?,give me kiss, tootie, come here, and dizzy. We lost him August 26,2003 due to my mother accidentally sitting on him without knowing he was on the love seat. We got a new one that was captive bred and he is already doing some things close to the other bird. We made a dvd disc from a camcorder tape for him to watch and he listens to it and whistles to it.

My sons and I just got a parakeet. She is a cutie. She is blue and we named her Spirit. She is already finger trained and loves to crawl on us. The funny thing is my cat is scared of her!

Hi everyone! I have 2 parakeets, but in seperate cages, I heard that if they are together they will not speak. Ive had the birds for about 2 weeks now, but they still seem afraid to stay on my finger after countless hours of training? they also refuse to eat fresh greens and their feathers are becoming fluffy? Can anybody suggest anything? thank you lots

We have a blue parakeet named Periwinkle (Peee-Diddy for short. He is very sweet and loving and loves to fight with our fingers when he is on the back of the chair. He also loves to try and pry my earrings off! He sits on our heads and plays with our hair, too.

I want to let everyone know a good tip ... the parakeets love greens, so we buy ours a pot of grass at the pet store and keep it moist for him. He especially loves it when we pull the grass out and hold the white root out for him to chew on. Mmmmm, mmmmm ... that is his favorite part!

I just got a parakeet given to me a few days ago..I have been afraid of birds because of my friends bird.. But my 3 year old daughter takes her out and we all let her sit on out shoulders and I`ve become quite attached to this little bird. I`m glad we got her. She is a great pet to have.
