Bird Keepers of FT
« on: November 04, 2016, 08:57:38 am »
There's a few of us who own birds here so here's a thread where you can talk nonstop about them! Feel free to share stories, photos, tips etc
And if you don't own a bird and have questions etc you can ask too

I have a Meyer parrot named Pidge. She's about one and a half years old (the pet store wasn't sure exactly how old she is). I've had her since April 30th 2016 and I love her so much <3 she doesn't know any words (Meyers are not big talkers and are one of the most quiet parrot species) but she can make a perfect crow caw. She's a little pig too and always tries to steal my food :fox-:P:

Here's a photo of her!

As everyone seems to know, I have an African Grey parrot named Pixel, and he never shuts up OMG. His favorite things to say are "I'm a round boy," "how 'bout a snack?" and "it's alright." He also laughs at his own jokes omg. His favorite snacks include cheese, blackberries, and peppers!



This is him on his first birthday back in March!

And here is him after a bath LOL

i've never owned a bird before, but i do have a question! O; are there any birds from all your experiences w/ them that aren't too noisy? i've always loved birds and wanted to keep one at one point but i'll be dwelling in apartments and whatnot for a while so i'd need one that won't disturb me or neighbors lmao. if not, i'd have to wait yearsss until i'm able to afford a place with like multiple rooms or something

All birds are noisy and have their moments but Meyers are one of the more quiet species, and based off my experience with Pidge I'd say that's pretty accurate. She only knows one loud squawk and doesn't make it often (usually when she's frustrated or trying to get your attention). She also only does one or two squawks at a time before giving up for a bit. Idk how she'd do in an apartment but I like to think she'd be ok

Pixel is actually quiet enough to live in an apartment, but yeah, nearly all birds have loud moments. The most he does is like, really loud singing XD And sometimes shrill whistles. It's usually not too bad though.
African Greys in general are rather quiet and like to keep to themselves, but it really just depends on the bird, haha.

There is a bird compatibility test here that might help! It sorts all different kinds of living situations, and might help you get an idea what might someday fit your lifestyle ^^

I don't have a bird yet, but I just wanted to say all your birds are pretty everybody, and I'll be excited to show mine when I get it. I decided on a Blue Headed pionus when I get a bird.

I bought Pidgey a bunch of new toys! The selection is so much better down here. She's gone through most of the ones in my local area so it'll be nice for her to have some new stuff to play with. And it was all super cheap?? I got about 10 cage toys and 4 footie toys for $75 which is waaaayyy cheaper then I would pay at home even after the exchange

I've a budgie named Chichi. She's now 11+ years old. Quite an old bird. She's a green one. We had five others, but two died of natural causes, one died of a broken neck, one of a broken foot, and one of some sort of tumor.

I don't have a bird, but my aunt does. I don't know what they are, but one of them likes to look at a mirror and whisper to himself "I'm a pretty bird. Pretty, pretty baby"

I have two budgies, one white and one yellow, named Marshmallow and Sundrop. They aren't too friendly to people but they love each other a lot, haha. They'll chat and chitter to each other. It's adorable.

I used to have a Starling I raised from a hatchling, sadly he died but he was very friendly to humans once he grew up and would fly around outside but then return to me. He taught me that song birds are very different than parrot type birds, though requiring less love and affection from me he definitely wanted to be out of his cage a lot more.

I have a Cockateil named Charlie, and I’m actually his favorite person to be with. I’m usually the one that ends up holding him outside the cage, and of he’s not with me he always wants to be with me. He can’t talk but he’ll whistle, especially if someone on TV is whistling. He also loves the Andy Griffin theme song
