It's probably been over a year since I last posted on here and I figured it might be time for an update.

I'm not sure if anybody on here remembers me, but I used to have 4 parakeets. About a year ago I decided to get into some bigger parrots, so I had to give two of my parakeets to a friend. Needless to say, I added a Quaker Parakeet named Floyd and a Sunday Conure named Dave. I kept Peeps and Rush and here are some pictures of the whole group smile

I remember seeing your avatar awhile ago before I signed up. I always loved that picture.

I REALLY want a sun conure and a quaker when I get my own place. Yours are soo cute! Are they friendly? How old are they?

Thanks smile

Floyd is absolutely the nicest creature on earth. When I ran into enough money to get a Quaker sometime last year, my breeder didn't have any and it was something like a 3 or 4 month wait so I went looking for one and I actually found him in a pet store where they had probably over 20 quakers. None of them were tame and only one of them didn't try to bite me with my hand in the cage...that one was Floyd smile

He really was awesome right from the start and was saying "good boy" by the time he was with me for about two months. Since then I've moved and got another bird. His ability to learn human speech just dissapeared...which kinda sucks. But he's still awesome and I don't really blame him for rather talking with Dave and the parakeets.

Anyway. Dave, on the other hand, is absolutely a man eater, haha. He's fantastic with me, though he's very bratty when I don't show him enough attention. With other people he's awful. If somebody he doesn't know is in the room he screams bloody murder the entire time...and don't even think about getting your fingers anywhere near him, lol.

I'm not sure where I went wrong with him since I raised him just the same as Floyd. I'm guessing it's because I had room mates when Floyd was a baby and so he's conditioned to not be afraid of other people. Dave was never exposed to that.

Phwew...short questions, long winded answer. Sorry, it's been a long time since I've talked to other bird people. smile

Dave (my conure) is definately the loudest of any of my birds...and that says a lot, lol. He's actually a mix of a Jandaya and a Sun conure, giving him the orange/red face of the sun and the fully green wings of the jandaya. A lot of times people will think they're buying a Jandaya and it'll really be a hybrid because they look a lot alike.

I am definately a fan of most all cockatoo's and mackaws. One of my friends just got a baby Blue and Gold and it's super cool...though the size of his beak is a little intimidating.

I would really encourage getting a baby Quaker as your first bigger bird. For some reason they seem to be easier to work with and less nippy than conures (given they are acquired as babies and brought up right). One of my friends has a Quaker and a Greencheek Conure and the Quaker is the better mannered of the two for sure (which is the same in my case). I know quakers aren't as appealing as they are kind of plain looking, but trust me...you'll fall in love smile
