I have a parakeet that is white with pinkish eyes. I'm not sure if it's female or male but it is very active. How do you tell if female or male? I've been calling her a heather, I talk to her and it's like she knows what Im saying. I'll ask her if she has a good girl while I'm at school, she will bob her head yes. I've never had one before but its great. I also have a jack russell dog that is glued to her at all times with her plastic bone in her mouth. It sounds like sometimes they are talking to each other, is that possible. If anyone can help me on this sure would appriecate it. You can e mail me it would be great to hear comments. Thanks Rosa

    The males cere - the area right above the nostrils and across the eyes is usually a color - blue or sometimes a brighter green. The females cere is usually a yellowish tan color. Yes, as far as I am concerned somehow all the animals can communicate. I have no idea how but they (just like children) will band together frequently to drive humans nuts. I had a bird that would somehow call my dog and chatter back and forth and the dog would open the additional lock I had placed on the bottom and let the parrot out. I had a parrot that would yell 'help ma' whenever the dogs would let the deer out. Many many occurances of incidents liuke this over the years. I am completely convinced they can communicate with each other.

I just adopted a Parolet? Looks like the Regent, however, she is solid white with a little light blue mixed in? She is tame and sweet and loves my male parakeet, Spry. Her behavior is very sweet and it took her a bit of time to get in the general population (10) birds. Could she be a Regent?

I think that this is a very spectacular bird. I am looking for a bird and when i saw this page and I read about the regent parakeet, I knew this would be the bird for me. When i do go to the pet store i will ask for a regent parakeet.

I have owned a beautiful year old female regent parrot for about six months. She is the most loving bird, and yes, she follows me around the house. She cuddles with me and sleeps on my shoulder. I never knew I could love a bird this much! Wobble aka Baby had a permenently crippled leg when I got her and my husband made her a "handicapped" type cage with flat perches at all angles. She loves it and gets around like a pro! I have even taken Baby to work and everyone fell in love with her and wanted to hold her like she was a new infant. She is everything you describe and more!!

I own one of these birds, or should I say it owns me. They are a lot of fun and easy to care for. A lot of energy and personality. They make awesome companions. I recommend this bird to anyone who is buying their first bird.

After reading many informational sites on parakeets and the information page on Regent Parakeet (Rock Pebblers to me)from this site I have decided to search for one as an additional pet. I will be getting a Regent that is about 1 year old very soon. After a time period I will post information that I learn from dealing with this new bird.
