I have a gorgeous GCC that is now about just under a year old. He's become the whole families favourite pet. Whenever you walk past his cage he bobs up and down and tries desperately to try and fly to you even tho he can't lol. He dances to whistling and makes a variety of sounds, he loves it when we take him outside and he can listen to the bell birds in the wild. He has grown very attached to the women in our family and 'defends' them from anyone coming too close by, puffing up his chest. He loves to help out with household chores, e.g. sitting down your top with his head poking out while you are ironing or doing the dishes. He loves to have a snuggle with my mum and our cat when night time comes around, the cat is like his idol, he worships him! He makes little cooing noises when he's falling asleep and will gladly sleep on anyone. He enjoys sitting at the door of his cage and throwing corn out onto the floor and LOVEs eating twisties (well not so much eating but chewing into tiny crumbs) He's the light of our lives!

    They are. They contain salt, which is a food that birds should NEVER have. They are also processed, which is plain bad to begin with. Feed them one only once in a while, but it's better to never give It to them. Other foods that birds can't have include avocado, coffee, and chocolate.

IF it gives any of you a smile, Chica, my Meyer's, about 4 years old, says three things: 1) Peekaboo! She learned that at her first home, but says it less as an adult; 2) Big Budgie! I taught her that, ironically of course. She is not a 'budgie' 3) as of last week, 'GodDAMMIT!'

Our lutino, Beaker, was hand raised in 1990. He's very sweet and beautiful. He has been known to chew the edges off an expensive paper lampshade and also the gilt off an antique picture frame! After that, we learned our lesson and keep his wings slightly clipped so he will stay on our shoulder. He goes outside with us, loves the garden dirt, goes nuts for fresh raspberries, and screeches shrilly at other birds. He becomes very agitated if we walk away from him. While in the care of a friend, he watched their female bird shred paper for her nest. Now his favorite pasttime is shredding paper, in cage or out! He also lifts the moveable doors on his cage and lets them smash down. This he does over and over w/o giving up as his signal that he wants to come out. It can become quite annoying!
One thing: the lovebird DOES NEED COMPANIONSHIP!! He will get sick w/o it; we learned this the hard way. He became neurotic and began chewing his back end, pulling out the feathers until he was bald and raw! We had to love him back to health and now make a point of always touching him and letting him out on our shoulder. We wear a towel clipped with a clothespin to keep our shirt clean, and after he has been loved, he nestles in our neck or under our chin. While on our shoulder he eats our human food and takes frequent drinks of water. He loves a water bath and takes one every day with his cool, fresh water.

I just got my little half moon conure 3 weeks ago. I bought him from a bird store with a liberal return policy. A family had bought him and he was returned for biting the children. After 2 days the biting stopped. He steps up nicely with both my husband and I. He says peek a boo. I talk to him a lot so I am hoping for more talking. He is about 1 yo. We are totally enchanted with him! We named him Tito.

ALCOHOL KILLS BIRDS!!!!! It is a very bad and irresponsible thing to give any bird and this person has been very lucky to still have a bird if he really is giving it alcohol that often. PLEASE dont feed your bird alcohol it absolutely has nothing to do with a birds ability to mimic so each. I have raised many species of birds and specifically 4 different species of pionus over the last 35 years.

I'm sure if a bird parent bought a bird from a pet store it might seem unfathomable to feed your bird alcohol, but remember where the bird is indigenous to countries that make wine, and they are free flying birds in their country of origin. Please respect others and learn more before you make comments and believe that bird owners are abusing their birds by giving them something that the birds are used to by nature.

    I'm sorry but feeding a pionus or ANY BIRD alcohol is the same as putting them in a plastic bag and tieing closed and expecting it to be alive when you come back. Absolutely terrible advice and others 'correcting' this idea will save novice bird owners from making a terrible and unreverrsible action. Alcohol,chocolate, avacodoes, teflon coated cookware and air fresheners like fabreeze as well as household cleaners will all poision and most often in certain quantities WILL KILL a bird within minutes of ingesting them or even just being nearby where they are being used. This is why it is of the upmost importance that any bird owner that cares for and loves their bird NOT USE these items or feed them to any bird. If it causes hurt feelings to the person advocating such practices when caring for a bird, well it's better than the alternative outcome. The items I mentioned are by no means the only things bad for a bird but they are the easiest and most common household items that are irreversibly detrimental to a birds life. PLEASE BELIVE THIS TO BE TRUE. Over the past 35 years of having and caring for many different species of birds I have seen and heard it all so I'm speaking not only from a book 'educated' experience but also from seeing first hand what new bird owners have unwittingly done to their birds. That is why I always suggest any person that is getting a bird educate themselves through legitimate means not only about the practices of caring for their new bird but also researching different species of birds that they are interested in getting. With just a little effort anyone wanting to add a bird to their lives can save themselves a lot of heartbreak and more importantly the life and wellbeing of said bird. Not only is it important to know the needs of housing your bird and what your bird needs physically to be happy and healthy but it's just as important that you get the right species of bird that fits your situation. It is far better to educate yourself in this way to avoid another unwanted bird that has to find another home. It is our responsibility as a good person and a great pet owner to do these things before acquiring any pet.
