    The parrots in the video are amazing! Thank you, Jan & Mari, for your experiences with your own birds! Sounds like so much fun.

    I purchased a parrot when he was 3 months old. He will be 23 years old in December. All my family has passed away and I am 73 year old. If it was not for my ‘bundle of joy’, I would not get out of bed in the morning. I can honestly say I have never taught him a thing. He has such a great personality and really is ‘king of the castle’. They are like children and must have structure. I am retired but used to work 10 hour days. He was home in his huge cage with many toys, water, seeds, pellets and cut up fruit. He sleeps in a ‘snuggie’ lined with flannel in his cage.

    I leave the radio playing country music when I am out and about. He snuggles inside my shirt a lot. I take him to get baby vanilla ice cream cones, one unsalted french fry from McDonalds, etc. He likes going in the car. I walk with him daily. But I get bit if I stop to talk to someone. He wants to keep moving. He has a play gym on my first floor. His ‘pup tent’ is covered with 8 thickness of flannel. He thinks it’s his job to chew and make a nest inside his tent. Gives me plenty of quiet time to read while he is working. I make a Dutch baby pancake and cut it into small squares. I package it for the freezer in zip lock bags and toss them in the freezer. I get one bag a week out and place in the refrigerator. He gets one square a day for a treat. He loves cold cranberry juice as soon as he gets up in the morning. He is SPOILED!

      What a great parrot parent you are Jan. People don’t realize that parrots can live for 70 years or more and they need to be provided for should something happen to the owner. You’re doing a great job with your bundle of joy! These ringneck parakeets in the video are typical of the species, they talk like crazy and are great fun to own. I had one that would argue with me about what his name was, it was a riot every day at feeding time. Great video.

    This is so beautiful. It is incredible that they can talk like they do. Someone has spent a lot of time teaching them. Thank you so much for sharing and God Bless.
