"Hi, I'm from Australia and we found our Alexandrine. Actually he found us. He walked (didn't fly) into my wifes work one day and started talking. When it became her turn to take him home for the weekend we both fell in love with him. We placed posters at the local shops, city newspapers, etc about a missing parrot (we didn't know what he was). No body collected him so he was ours. 9 months or so later he grew his ring, and we've taught him a lot. He gives kisses when asked, can say a lot of stuff. Has a diet coke addiction (doesn't like normal coke), eats breakfast lunch and dinner with us (I work from home). He goes through toys and ladders like there is no tomorrow. We've even made him a stainless steel ladder because he was eating through two a month. We've since placed a nice softwood we found in the bush in his cage. The only weird thing is, he lets almost every female pat him, he actually loves it, but never lets me or any male touch anything but his beak. I guess he must have been mistreaded by a male owner previously. We absolutely love him, he is a part of the family."
