Seeking Advice About Acquiring Bee Bee Parrot
 
I've been looking to adopt a parrot for quite some time without much luck. A local feed/grain/garden/pet store has two Bee Bee Parrots for sale (although they are calling them Bee Bee Conures). They are about a year and half old and have been in the store for a year, kept in a cage together. They have not been handles very much at all. I am looking for one bird that will be a friendly and tame companion. If I buy one of these birds, what are my chances of it becoming socialized and friendly? Is it wrong to separate the two birds? Would you advise against one of these birds if I'm looking for a bird that become a friendly pet? I know I will have to work with the bird and I'm happy to do that, but I don't want to get a bird that is too old/too neglected to properly socialize.

As a former BeeBee parrot ( Brotgeris Chiriri) owner, I think you will not find a parrot that will be as friendly ( and to more thn one person ) then a Bee Bee. In their native ranges, they are noted for seeking our human companionship. I would get one, not 2. They are smart, curious and absolutely fearless, and think they are the size of a macaw. The correct name for them is a yellow wing parrot or parakeet. They were THE imported parrot in the early 20th century, and were also known as pocket parrots, because they usually love to snuggle in pockets and shirts. Ours was a snuggler and with everyone in the family.
