Thank you for the info on red bellied parrots! They are definately one of my favourites! We are getting a female in September. Although it seems like a long time I know it's worth the wait!

Java adopted us a year ago and keeps things very interesting in our house. I hear a lot of people say the red bellied parrot thinks it is much bigger than reality. Java is larger than life and I believe she thinks she is an 800 pound gorilla. She takes toys from the dog and will carry off an empty 20 ounce water bottle the dog was using as a toy. She is mischievous and will try to pull the cat's whiskers or bite her tail when the cat sleeps curled up on my lap. We have to watch her every minute like a naughty toddler, but she is such a jokester that we forgive her easily. When she saw snow out the window for the first time and heard us get excited about snow in Atlanta, she exclaimed "boy oh boy".

Would Like to have male. I have female that is laying eggs but no male to fertilize eggs. I was told it was a male when I bought it 6yrs ago. So my JO-JO, is a Joette.

Skully is our two foot Macaw, living in an African Red Bellied Parrot body!! He is wonderful, playful and very intelligent. He has his entire household "trained" to be at his beck and call. This includes the newest addition to our family, Hershey, an 80 pound chocolate lab puppy. Our family considers Hershey to be Skully's dog. Skully feeds him his leftovers, plays with him, calls him by name and disciplines him when necessary. His favorite phrase is "Hi Baby" which is something that I said to him for only a week before he picked it up. He whistles and sometimes talks continuosly at one minute intervals combining rambling with distinct understandable words and phrases such as "Good Morning, Hello, Good-Bye, Good Night, Trouble." Before I met Skully, I didn't realize that sharing my life with a bird could be so enjoyable!! I look forward to each day that I have with him and am grateful that my life has been graced with his presence!

We've had Skyler, our Red Bellied Parrot for 7 months. He was 3 months old when we got him. He's a joy to have! He's learned the "Andy Griffith" tune, says "kitty, kitty, kitty" & he says & even associates "meow" with the word kitty! Amazing!! Our sweetest & largest cat (who is also male) looooves Skyler so much. The other cats don't really pay him much attention. This is my first bird & I hope to have him for many many years.

I have a Blue Quaker Parrot named Kiwi, a Senegal named Uma, a Green Cheek Conure named Frindle, and I recently got a baby male Red-Bellied that I have named Sooty. Of all the birds I have, he is the cuddliest and sweetest. Even though I am still handfeeding him he has learned to say 'hello' in a cute voice. He thrives on his daily fruits, veggies, grains, etc. and loves his pellets. He is such a handsome bird. I look forward to many happy years with him.

I have a pair of red bellies and even though they are not tame, they amaze me every day. I go into the bird room for chores, and immediately my mood is lifted with their chorus of hello's and "where's the vegetables?!" They both enjoy being petted and talked to through the cage. I have been a breeder for 7 years, and own 16 different species, and red bellied babies are by far my favorite! Of all the birds I raise, I get the most compliments on my red bellied babies, because of their awesome personalities, and their ability to be a family pet.
