    As long as he is healthy and eating normally, he's probably okay. He may be bored, or perhaps he's getting old?

    What a great bird you've gotten. Even though its not yet tame, I bet you will really enjoy it over the years. Some great information on training basics can be found on the Parakeet Care page, Parakeet:handling/training.

My Regent parrot, Milo will be 26 next month. Yes, I have had him the entire time. Anyone have a 'realistic' life span range for these birds? Everything I have read is 20-25. Well, he has surpassed that! Thanks!

    You rock! Your Regent is well cared for, and long-lived. I have read 25, and up to 30 years as an average lifespan for these birds.

    My sister in-law was given a rock pebbler and in the 2 days I spent visiting, 'Pebbles' allowed me to get him out of his cage a few times and cuddle with him. Unfortunately she will not give up the bird, so I am looking to find one for myself. I have a lot of experience with a wide variety of birds. I would train/handle the rock pebbler as a companion bird. I currently live in NC, but I am looking into moving to the Idaho, Oregon, Washington area in the next few months. If anyone can hook me up with a breeder, I would appreciate it!

I've been looking for a hardy, pretty, playful parrot for a long time and this bird is definitely my 1st choice! I currently have two fischer lovebirds and a budgie (my brother also has a budgie). I just love parrots and finally I'll get my first large bird!

We just bought a Parakeet he is a good looking we love the bright yellow, we named him Sunny. We also have a Cockatiel, and Binky really was showing off for his attention. Can we put them in the same cage? The Cocktaiel is so calm and much more peaceful. Your web sight was very heplful to us, Thank You

    I wouln't put them in the same cage.  They can play together and be out together but I would let them have their own cage and toys.  I wouldn't want them to completely pair bond with each other and leave out their human.  Cockatiels can be pretty protective of their 'best pal' so I'd keep them in separate cages.

Although I am very satisfied with your website, I do think you should be a tad bit more detailed and ,well, truthful. You say that every bird is incredible, sweet, and lovable. I do think you should be more candid.
