Re: What is your favorite parrot and why?

Always been an Amazon person, though we did have a Quaker for a short period. Thats to own, but I love B&G macaws, Greys, Caiques. I was never much on conures or Senigals.

Why Amazons? Because survey says: Amazons have more fun

Re: What is your favorite parrot and why?

I've always been manipulated by the African grey, I'm a pushover for their eyes and red tails feathers.

I am afraid, though, that I'm slowly falling for amazons and macaws too. Have always felt I'd not be able to handle them but everyone here with amazons and macaws have changed my mind.

But Nigel is now watching me type, does he see what I've written? Oh no! Threats of poop bombs and buttfeathering are on my horizon!

Re: What is your favorite parrot and why?

I'm a known Amazon Snob, so my answer is pre-estabishied!

That said, if your goal is to determine what Parrot you should get, this is not my recommended approach. That based on the reality that some Parrots will just not want you, no matter how much your WANT them. I am a strong believer in letting the Parrot choose you!

You will be much further ahead by volunteering at a Rescue, starting a the bottom. Yes, cleaning cages and working up as your knowledge growths. During the process you will find that some Parrots will be very interesting in you and others will avoid you.

At some point, a Parrot will pick you and you will have the experience to support, care and love them forever more. All you have to do is be open to it happening!

Re: What is your favorite parrot and why?

I am owned by two RLA and one B&G

Aba-baba is my all time favorite parrot, she is my 35yo Red Lored, primrose cheeked amazon.

But I LOVE quakers because they are so darned cute: their two-tone coloring and eyes and little tiny razor sharp beaks.
and they are so hearty and build really cool nests in my neighborhood in jersey.

(although the city just removed about four huge nests and I am not sure what happened to all of the birds.)

Re: What is your favorite parrot and why?

I have always been enchanted by the Queen of Bavaria (Golden) Conure... just the sheer beauty of them.

I am reminded that the vastly entertaining AND psychic Kentuckienne somehow knew this when she penned a rap for me which referred, in part, to the the idea that as the Queen of Bavaria, my rhymes would bury ya!!!!

I couldn't make this stuff up.

Re: What is your favorite parrot and why?

I would like to have a cockatoo, but after reading about them I think they are more work than I'd like to deal with.

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.

Re: What is your favorite parrot and why?

I'm not supposed to have a favorite of my boys... but while I seem to spend a bit more training time with Harley on biting, Valentine has my heart haha! So I would have to say my fav breed is the Galah cockatoo �� The why is because he is an absolute ham. He isn't a cuddler but is very sweet and social and just easy going in general. The vet didn't even have to towel him when I took the three of them for their first wellness exam this Saturday lol. I know this isn't typical too behavior though and I am sure I'm in for it when he hits puberty, but I love the breed overall.
