I Have a Parrot

    Well, technically he's my dads parrot,

    but I think of him as mine. He talks sometimes and he'll shout at you for no reason. My dad told me He used to be able to curse but he stopped years ago, like before I was born. I don't remember how old he is, but he's not going anywhere anytime soon.

    Three Of Them

    I have three of them. I love them all. One of them is more "mine" than anyone else's, however. She lets me, and only me, hold her in my hands and wrap her up in a towel. She lets me pet her and scratch her. She is so cute and funny. She talks, and knows when to say certain...

    A Bunch of Parrots : The thing about parrots is

    that when you have them, people seem to bring you more to "take care of" for a little while. But they never come back and after a few years you realize that the parrot has joined your little flock.   So I have Tommy.  He is affectionately called "little Napolean".  Tommy...

    I rescued a Sun Conure Parrot named Albie.

    He is 6 years old. I am his third and forever home. I have now had him two years. Every night, when I cover his cage, he kisses me goodnight. He is such a funny and joyous little creature! Love him to pieces!

    Quaker Parrot

    I have a 4 year old green Quaker parrot. His vocabulary is expanding every month. He's one of the most interactive pets we have. It almost feels like he knows what he's saying when he's talking to you.

    I have an awesome African grey,

    his name is Piper. I adopted him 2 years ago. He's 11 years old and we share the same birthday/ hatch day. When I got him he was way underweight and almost featherless! He's mostly feathered and at optimum weight now. I had no idea what I was getting into, parrots are not...

    I Discovered What My Parrot Eats In the Wild!

    I have a monk parakeet.   Many times people rob baby chicks from their nests to keep as pets.  I do not approve of this but it happens.  One day my stepdaughter found a monk parakeet on the street.  Apparently it had gotten lost from its owner or it had...

    Strange Creatures

    Honestly the parrot trade sickens me. I never intended to own a parrot, nor did I solicit the one I have, rather he was given to me against my wishes and better judgment. That said, I have a bond with my bird that will last a lifetime...no kidding, he will sing the requiem to my...
