Re: What is your favorite parrot and why?

In terms of appearance, I'm stunned by a hawk-headed parrot. Such gorgeous birds.

In terms of personality and what I'd be able to own... well my GCC is about as complicated as I can ever get with a bird and their care. I also have a very soft place in my heart for budgies. I very well might get a few again once my life is in a better place to take on more birds and if my conure allows LOL.

Re: What is your favorite parrot and why?

I'm partial to the small cockatoos. But now that I'm owned by a rose breasted, they take first place. She's perfection for our household and fits in perfectly. Hilarious, mild mannered, picky, sassy, sweet, opinionated...she's just awesome. I love the pink ones so much that I have a second coming home in a couple months

Re: What is your favorite parrot and why?

I love the sweetness and beauty of RB2s and I love the sassiness of Quakers--the guy in my signature is Sammy. Allie gave him a home when I moved to Honduras for a year and I know he is super happy there, but I still miss that boy! I have also had GCCs, suns, and budgies in my life, but in a general sense I think RB2s still top the list. They are a perfect size for me, and though I think macaws are gorgeous, I have always felt they were a little too big for me to handle. Just to look at in a photo, though, I'd go macaw! I will probably add more birds to my household sometime in my life, and it is likely the next will be a Quaker.

LOL, let him be the one who cleans that imaginary macaw's cage!!! Senegals, lame? Pshaw. Pet rocks are lame. *glances at his pet ball python in the hidey rock it never leaves* Sorry, Buddy, just pretend Daddy didn't say that.

They have one at the pet store that says "hey c'mere" and then when you go over he fluffs out his feathers and starts laughing. It's hard to resist taking him home, but then I remind myself of all the reasons why that is a terrible idea.
IKR, I love cockatoo but they're so hard to care. Maybe I will have them when I'm retiring 50 years later

Re: What is your favorite parrot and why?

My favorite is Max.... he could have been any species!

I know typical Adoption Coordinator answer, but truly, if you ever go to a rescue and let the bird pick you, won't matter what they are - it's all about who they are

I always said I wasn't a macaw person and I get teased about that, but I always reply - I'm not a macaw person, I'm a Max person!

I tell adopters, there is an saying in horse world that is more true in parrot world - a good horse is never a bad color.... so very true with parrots! The right parrot is never the wrong size or color!

Okay done with my hokey babble....
