Here's my Jasper. He's an Alexandrine Ringneck Parakeet (the largest parakeets there are). He's still young, so he has no ring around his neck yet.

This is the canary I used to have named Sprite. He died due to an uncurable infestation of airsac mites :(

Everyone's parrots are adorable !

Remember, anyone who plans or wants a parrot, PLEASE DO ALOT OF RESEARCH, They are along term commitment, and there is so many things that are toxic to parrots, they own you ! You have to alter alot of your lifestyle to keep them healthy and happy :)

Anyone with GCC's Please Check Out My Forum, Its in my Siggy under my banner !

I'm gonna have to check out that forum.

Also I second Twister...research research research!! There are SO not an "easy" animal, as is said often enough. You really do have to make quite a few changes to your lifestyle to keep them healthy...which includes changing all your cookware for non-teflon stuff, no scented candles, etc.. Plus a bazillion other things. Make sure you're ready to commit full-term and understand everything you're getting into. If you or any family members are adverse to loud/and or near-constant noise, perhaps bringing one into the house would not be a good choice. IDK but I hear complaints about a parrot's noiseyness fairly often from owners...they're birds after all! Even green cheeks who are often heralded as the quietest of the parrots have a rather piercing shriek. :wink:
