    Default Tell me about your birds.

    Im looking at getting a birdy in a few months. I really want a Sun Conure, or Indian Ringneck.

    So tell me about your bird, pros/cons ect.

    I have a male eclectus parrot. YouTube them! They are full of personality and make great pets. Females can be a bit hormonal so I opted for a male, he is still a baby but is already picking up words like "what are you doing" and "tickle tickle". You can teach them so many tricks and he will most likely out live me. Pricey and messy but so interactive and doesn't just sit in a cage if you know what I mean.

    ive also owned a Indian ringneck before and they are great small bands, hand raise them and they can be great pets too!

    Any bird I get will be hand raised from a loving couple who have them for pleasure (not a petstore or backyard breeder).

    I have a rainbow lorikeet (called skittles) he is one yr and just lovely full of character although he thinks he is the size of an eagle when he comes near the cat or dog lol.
    He is also starting to talk.
    I did have an Indian ring neck a beautiful yellow one but he wasnt hand raised.

    I have a blue quaker parrot. He's got so much personality and I love him to pieces! He's very snugly and loves to sit with myself or my fiancé instead of flying around the house and doing his own thing. Highly recommend you google quaker parrots =)

    Two Quakers here, they are the best birds. Found our Sun Conure was extremely loud in comparison, and that our Cockatiels were little noise-buckets. Both my two talk, sing and snuggle <3 love them to bits!

    My sister has a Princess Parrot and he's really good with her DS5 (who ADORES his bird!).

    I used to have a cockatiel, cute birds!

    I have a hand reared Pineapple Conure who was raised by a hubber actually. She is an amazing bird, I love her. She's so tame and very affectionate and great with the kids. She can be a bit noisy but generally only when she wants to come out of her cage for some attention and affection.
