- B&G Macaw, Galah, 5 cockatiels, 50 billion and a half budgies. We breed and do rescue. Too many to list each individual's name and age etc, but they are each individuals and loved dearly.

That's what I get for asking people for name suggestions. Bird almost got away with being named Meep, but no: Fatty Dingdong.
I've always wanted a rude bird, so when Fatty started talking I took advantage of the fact that parakeets are relatively short-lived parrots and the fact that I will never have to rehome him.... He is what you might consider an edgelord or troll... He says some relatively innocent things "Hey bird" "little bird" "whatcha doing" copies the cockatiel several ways, mimics a highly stylized siren(we are right around the corner from a firehouse and maybe a block from a large road) and some less innocent things "drink bleach" and various obsceneties to name a few... I have only had him a short time... a couple of months. I did not plan to get him, was in one of the box stores for something or other and bought him kind of on a whim. shrug. Not the best practice, but I have a bunch of bird experience and had an empty cage so figured why not.
He is very smart, incredibly devilish, clowney, and sweet: all the best traits of a parakeet. Have been working with training, and I intend to try out flight training with him. I have never done this before so pointers would be appreciated. I plan to use this thread as like a "bird diary" of his training progress, antics, etc if that is allowed on this forum.
I've attached a photo-is there a better way to put photos in posts?- of Fatty sitting upside-down, how he sometimes does while talking to himself(tilt your head, for whatever reason photo is sideways). Guess he thinks he is a very colorful bat.
