I've always wanted a parrot. Do any of yours speak? I wondered how long it would take to teach them.
Yes I have a parrot as well, Mine speaks luckily, although I lost it, I took it out to clean cage outside. LOL. And then I accidently kicked it and it flew away.
P.S. It was staying calm there before I kicked it.
Parrots are very cute! I like the way parrots speak. They're pretty amusing. I don't have a parrot though. Hehe.
Have fun with your new pets. ^__^
African Grey parrots are the fastest to learn to talk. But they along with Macaws and other exotic birds are listed under endangered species of the world and we should give thought on that before buying them.
There is a great campaign going on that says "when the buying stops the killing will too"...I think this is very true.
My cousin just got his parents to get him a parrot. I think it's like a cockatoo, but smaller. It doesn't talk, but supposedly it hums music. My cousins were telling me how annoying it is all the time. When I went up to the room to see, the bird didn't make a single noise. Perfectly silent. I have yet to hear it make a noise.
Since you can't really stop the birds from chirping, why not make your room a bit soundproof? It would be better than getting angry over something the first thing in the morning,
Or instead you can choose to enjoy their song and appreciate their beauty. Too few people in this urbanised world get to wake up to the sound of birds chirping... Some whould say you are very lucky...
But I do understand that it must be annoying to be woken up when you really want to sleep. I'm just saying maybe it is better to find a solution to that than get angry at someting that is actually a part of nature and is beautiful.
My neighbors behind me have what I think is a parrot. I think they put his cage on their patio on nice days, because sometimes when I'm weeding my garden I'll hear the bird call my dog or my husband-----using *my* voice! It was very odd the first time I heard the bird do that....
I've never heard of owls being kept as pets, are they much different than keeping parrots?
I had a pet parrot, Kiki. I learned him in about 2 years to say his name. It's really hard to learn parrots to talk but its worth it.
Best parrot I ever shared space with was a Crimson Macaw called Garibaldi. He was the cutest bird I ever knew.
I prettymuch love parrots, but i have none of my own. There really creapy creatures especailly when they start to mimic some of what you say but all they they're on the the most lovely birdsto keep around the home.
Canyou paste the pictures of your parrot here,
thanks i'll love to see how beautiful they are.
I have always wanted a pet parrot...either a macaw or an African Grey. The only problem is that they require so darn much space...and attention. I think that I may consider buying one only when I know I have the time and resources to invest in one (i.e. when I'm through with college). From your own experiences, what are the positives and negatives to owning a parrot? Is there anything else I should be aware of?
