View Full Version : Any birds?

I have two conures, a nanday and a red-throat. I used to adopt birds after falling in love with my first red-throat that I brought home as a baby. Every time someone found a bird and couldn't find its home, my phone rang.

That was years before the kids. After many years we are down to just the two conures, two cats and a hermit crab (really). After my youngest saw Tangled she asked her oldest sister for a chameleon. Ha! I don't think so, but I'll check-in in about five years. :D

No birds yet, but I am in love with love birds. I wish i had some. How hard is it taking care of birds. And does your birds talk?

I have a parrot and have no problems with it and my kids do like it.
At the first time it was rather jelous relationship between them, but now I'm quite for that situation.

It is not very hard at all. If you want to train them to talk it is better to purchase them young though. Males are better talker than females. If you purchase a pair, it is more likely they will bond with each other rather than you though.

Over time I had three conures that could talk (still have the two), a cockatiel that could whistle a few tunes and make sounds (if you teach a bird to whistle they might not take to talking), and a few parakeets that could talk and make sounds. One parakeet I rescued fell in love with the cockatiel and when she passed he would whistle her favorite tune, the theme to the X-Files.

An African Grey? Cool. How old? They are very smart birds.

I love them...okay, I love all birds. :D I also am a fan of the Senegal Parrots from Africa that are small like conures. One of my friends had a Senegal that was so cool.

I had originally wanted a bigger parrot but we were in an apartment when we got our first Conure. I didn't know how loud they were till I brought him home, but it was before we were moving into our own house. An African Grey probably would have been quieter. ;)
