My Regent parrot, Milo will be 26 next month. Yes, I have had him the entire time. Anyone have a 'realistic' life span range for these birds? Everything I have read is 20-25. Well, he has surpassed that! Thanks!

    You rock! Your Regent is well cared for, and long-lived. I have read 25, and up to 30 years as an average lifespan for these birds.

    My sister in-law was given a rock pebbler and in the 2 days I spent visiting, 'Pebbles' allowed me to get him out of his cage a few times and cuddle with him. Unfortunately she will not give up the bird, so I am looking to find one for myself. I have a lot of experience with a wide variety of birds. I would train/handle the rock pebbler as a companion bird. I currently live in NC, but I am looking into moving to the Idaho, Oregon, Washington area in the next few months. If anyone can hook me up with a breeder, I would appreciate it!

My husband and I have 2 male Rock Pebblers (Regent Parrots) and they are so loving. We also have Quakers and parakeets, budgies, and doves.. I have to say that our Rock Pebblers are our favorites. They are our babies! We would like to find a female for a companion. However they are very hard to find. If anyone knows where there are any females for sale, Please let us know... my husband takes them out in the back yard every morning and every evening, (their wings have been clipped) and they have the best time. They are very entertaining birds who love us just as much as we love them..

I've been looking for a hardy, pretty, playful parrot for a long time and this bird is definitely my 1st choice! I currently have two fischer lovebirds and a budgie (my brother also has a budgie). I just love parrots and finally I'll get my first large bird!

We just bought a Parakeet he is a good looking we love the bright yellow, we named him Sunny. We also have a Cockatiel, and Binky really was showing off for his attention. Can we put them in the same cage? The Cocktaiel is so calm and much more peaceful. Your web sight was very heplful to us, Thank You

    I wouln't put them in the same cage.  They can play together and be out together but I would let them have their own cage and toys.  I wouldn't want them to completely pair bond with each other and leave out their human.  Cockatiels can be pretty protective of their 'best pal' so I'd keep them in separate cages.

Although I am very satisfied with your website, I do think you should be a tad bit more detailed and ,well, truthful. You say that every bird is incredible, sweet, and lovable. I do think you should be more candid.

I have a parakeet that is white with pinkish eyes. I'm not sure if it's female or male but it is very active. How do you tell if female or male? I've been calling her a heather, I talk to her and it's like she knows what Im saying. I'll ask her if she has a good girl while I'm at school, she will bob her head yes. I've never had one before but its great. I also have a jack russell dog that is glued to her at all times with her plastic bone in her mouth. It sounds like sometimes they are talking to each other, is that possible. If anyone can help me on this sure would appriecate it. You can e mail me it would be great to hear comments. Thanks Rosa

    The males cere - the area right above the nostrils and across the eyes is usually a color - blue or sometimes a brighter green. The females cere is usually a yellowish tan color. Yes, as far as I am concerned somehow all the animals can communicate. I have no idea how but they (just like children) will band together frequently to drive humans nuts. I had a bird that would somehow call my dog and chatter back and forth and the dog would open the additional lock I had placed on the bottom and let the parrot out. I had a parrot that would yell 'help ma' whenever the dogs would let the deer out. Many many occurances of incidents liuke this over the years. I am completely convinced they can communicate with each other.

I just adopted a Parolet? Looks like the Regent, however, she is solid white with a little light blue mixed in? She is tame and sweet and loves my male parakeet, Spry. Her behavior is very sweet and it took her a bit of time to get in the general population (10) birds. Could she be a Regent?
