"We adopted Joshua at 3 months - and little did we know what a ball of fire we got! He's now 3 1/2 years old and talks no-stop; people will ask how many words he knows, and I just say as many as he wants! When not at home we let him and our little Shih-Tzu, Dixie watch cartoons; so now he's picking up some of their words, the latest being "Okey, dokey, dokey," & we are are saying it too! Bad enough when your pets imitate you, but worse when you find yourself imitating them! We had Dixie for 3 years prior to getting Joshua, she was not thrilled when he came in, but, for him, it was instant love. He loves that little dog and throws her carrots and green beans all day...he tells her to go "Pee Pee" and then says "Good Girl" afterwards! When she comes in he asks if she wants a "Cookie or a Carrot." She in turn, tolerates him now, after all, Joshua is a good food source! PROS for having a Half Moon: Intelligent, will reward you 10-fold if you take care of them. They are family friendly with us, love me the most and my husband second,(of course, after Dixie!). Beautiful little birds. Loves to ride on my shoulder all day. Will stay on perch without wondering. Definite talkers! And looove you so... CONS - if spoiled, they will call (or yell) for you by name until you pay attention. Can be loud, & nippy. One thing we hate is that while Joshua lets us kiss him, play bite, and steps up, he won't let us touch his body with fingers or be picked up. Having spoken with several other Half Moon folks, found out that they have the same problem. Don't know if it's breed characteristic, or just coincidence. After 3 years of trying, he now lets us touch his back (if we do it quick!). All in all, they are definite keepers and worth a little noise & nip for all of the love you get."
