I have 2 African Red Bellies for sale. They are clutchmates and are 4 months old. 1 male and 1 female. They were not handfed so would make good breeders. $350 each. Will ship at buyers expense.

    I'm raising 3 month parakeets pair since 2 months and I lov them like babies, they are fully attached to me and love my company, the reason I think is that I give them my finger often to chew and play with and the male one don't leave it unless I force him to leave. Let them climb on you put your hand in cage so that they get familiar with your hand and your voice ,always call them and talk to them with soft voice,put them on your shoulder or lap, and most important try to hand feed them, my parakeets still love to eat from my hand althought they can eat with their own

The bird in the photo is clearly a Panama Amazon (A. ochrocephala panamensis) as described on this webpage. Notice the lack of red-orange in the upper mandible, the small and restricted area of yellow on the forehead, and the paler look of the beak, cere, and feet. I live with a Panama amazon, and I'm pretty sure about this. You might want to update the photo's caption.

I rescued an OW amazon from a terrible place. He was living in a cockroach filled cage and fed nothing but garbage. He lost an eye from getting into a fight with a ferret in their home. His nails had not been trimmed in years,they were corkscrew down to his toes. He is elderly and imported, he has an open band. I cried all the way home because he looked so sad and sick when I met him, it's hard to believe he was living that way for so long. I got him home, bought him a new cage, gave him a bath, some good PROPER food and made a vet appointment. The vet told me I got him in the nick of time and that he was lucky I found him. He was VERY WILD. I have 10 other pet birds, most were rescued from bad situations, and I had never seen a bird as fearful of humans as he was. With veterinary care, proper diet and A LOT of patience and love he is turning out to be the SWEETEST little man. Almost as cuddly as a cockatoo, he can't wait to be with his momma and get a kiss. He loves watching HIS TV and chewing up wood when he is not in my lap. I mounted a tv with cable in the bird room (near his good eye so he can see it)because he loves it. He lets me know what he wants to watch. The only thing I can say that is sometimes a hindrance is his screaming, which I am working with him on. Unfortunately he spent most of his life locked in a tiny cage so screaming is the only way he knows how to communicate. I understand this so I am doing my best to be patient even though my hearing is probably permanently damaged. Since I got him I find myself saying "what" a lot, lol. His scream makes my cockatoo sound like she is whispering. OW Amazons can be VERY LOUD. OW are unique from the other Amazons. I love how he smells like daisies and his neck feathers "puff up" when he is happy.
Overall I've found that in spite of his fear of humans he is a gentle bird who doesn't have a mean bone in his body, he just wants love and to be understood.
I love him with all of my heart and I encourage all to rescue parrots instead of buying babies, there are plenty more out there just like mine who need someone to love them.

    Wow Shannon,

    Such a sad story. I felt so sad when I read his story but so happy that you are taking care of him now. Well done.

    Hope you are both well.

  • rachel - 2010-04-04
    I am very pleased to hear this I have a male ow called pippy, he is the sweetest most gentle bird ever, I have had him for 11 yrs and would never part with him. Like yourselves I think he had a bad start as I bought him from a pet shop in kent, he was advertised in a bird magazine, I phoned up and gave my details , sent the money and then I got the bird. I was told he was nasty and I would be lucky to even be able to feed him through the bars, but with a little tlc, me and pippy well I can do anything with him as can my children and husband , but he loves me most and I feel the same about him. We had an african grey called casper but she died last month of a hereditry heart problem , the vet was very impressed with the overall condition my parrot was in, so I booked pippy in to be seen by the vet , and the vet said he was perfect, and in fantastic condition , which I was proud of my animals are my world I love them. So I have now gone and rescued a lesser sulphur cockatoo from a home that he was no longer wanted at, I have had him 2 days and now he is eating and drinking like he should and his feathers are not dirty and he let me pick him up. I think we are going to be good friends. I can't stand people being nasty to parrots they are stunning animals.

I just got my very 1st pair of peach faced lovebirds 2 days ago. They are 8-10 weeks old. Peaches+Harry. I'm in love with them already. They are both very scatty when I go near the cage, so I know there's a lot of training to be done. I've been giving them fruit+veg everyday, but they don't seem to be interested in them at all. They are eating seeds+drinking but I'm worried cause I know fruit+veg is a big part of there diet. I have a metal dish attached to the cage that I put it in..Any tips please..x

    Yes, many say that fruits and veggies are extrmemly important but sometimes birds just won't eat them.  I think if they see other birds do it - they are more inclined.  Try dicing up the fruit - into little pieces and putting a little honey on it.  You can also take the seed and then mix in some fruit and make it into a mash.  The problem with this is you should remove any unused food within two hours.  Take the peelings off - seriously.  Try little pieces right on top of the seed with honey on the fruit or peanut butter.  A little peanut butter on a small piece of apple. They are probably not eating it because they weren't introduced to it.

    Our love birds do not like frsh fruit or veggies but they do like popcorn non butter and no salt.. an we get them fruit pellets and pellets from veg at the pt store, they eat that very well. We also grown seedling gras for them an they adore it also. We have found they eat cookd vegies a bit better, esp if we are eating at the same time with them

I have had my 2 peach faced lovebirds for 5 years and never had any problems with them but over the last 3 months one of my love birds has lost most of its feathers on its chest and under its wings can anyone give me some advice?

    Now is the time of year where the birds are just finishing up their major molt so possibly it has something to do with that.  The new feathers coming in are prickly and itchy and sometimes they just get in a bad habit of pulling out too many.  Sometimes it is just plucking.  I would give him paper towel or toilet paper rolls to chew on.  I'd put in cash register tapes (you can get them at Staples and really cheap) and just hang in the cage.  They unroll the tapes and chew them up into little pieces.  Any toys for him to chew on and destroy.  I'd also bathe (spritz) him down really good with aloe bird bath.  It would even be good to put the cage in front of the TV for them to watch cartoons.  Just try more toys and more entertainment and more bathing.
