For those of you that have owned multiple species..

What species were they, which was your favorite, and why?

Re: For those of you that have owned multiple species..

i currently own cockatiels and peach faced lovebirds and have owned a budgie in the past (he passed away).

cockatiels are my favourites for the cuddle factor, the more even-tempered factor and they are much LESS complicated than lovebirds lol


(i love my goofy lovebirds though, they never read this post :P )

I have actually owned all of the birds you mentioned (can't remember if the lovebird was a peach face though). and I enjoyed mine for the same reasons.
However my tiels were handraised and by budgies and lovebirds were not.

Every one of them was special to me in their own unique way, there is no way to pick a favorite for me. If I was forced to choose, I would go with the Blue Streaked Lories: their cunning, conniving commitment to commit mayhem and the obvious enjoyment they received from committing it was just too fun to watch.
Wow, that's quite a list. I understand what you mean about it being hard to choose because of their uniqueness. Every pet certainly is special.

Re: For those of you that have owned multiple species..

Budgies, cockatiels, bourkes, a turquoisine, peach face lovebird, cherry headed conure and mitred conure.

My favorite of the "little birds" would be the cockatiels... but only because my first tiel was hand raised and she's a sweety! (a brat, too!) I've had her since she was 5 months old and she'll be 12 this year! Bourkes would be a close second since they are such unique little creatures!

Of the larger, I'd go with cherry head. My cherry head was a special needs bird, and he had a place in my heart. He was never "right", but he was my special guy. I miss having a cherry head. I do love my "my-turd", but cherry heads will always have a special place in my heart.

Re: For those of you that have owned multiple species..

I have greys and a sennie, and I have to say that between them I think I like my sennie best. Less mess and less destructive, but still cuddly when she wants to be. The greys are great, but they're not MY dream bird but my husbands. I want the cuddly macaw that trashes the house and demands all my time... Not exactly like my sennie but than who is? ;p

OMG, here's what I have had so far, Zebra Finches, American Parakeets, English Budgies, Lovebirds, Cockatiels, Conures, Macaw, Cockatoos, Black Lory, Red Fronted Kakariki, Canaries, Eclectus, and Senegal. My favorite would have to be the Cockatiels although I loved them all except the conures.

Conures sure are characters, aren't they?

I've never owned a macaw. We did have a goffin cockatoo before though. What makes you say macaws are easier to care for?

Very cool, do you want one of the large macaws or a mini one?

That's very interesting that you prefer your cockatiels over the big birds. Why is that?

Re: For those of you that have owned multiple species..

i have had 4 budgies, 2 canaries (a red factor and a spanish timbrado) and 2 conures (sun and blue crown). They are all different and hard to choose a 'favorite', but the two i probably had the easiest time forming a powerful bond with--my first budgie, Percy, and Gilbert, my blue crown. They are/were my charmers. Percy charmed everyone he met. He would make a dramatic entrance when i had company, fly around the room and land on a guest and start talking. He was definitely "the life of the party", and he wanted it to stay that way. HUGE personality for a tiny little guy. I still miss Percy all the time and he died in 1999! Gilbert is only a youngster but he has certain personality traits that are a bit like Percy, but he is more of a mush! He is kind of 'lovey dovey' in general, happy, funny and affectionate. Percy was less mushy and more dramatic and 'larger than life'.
