    Is he hand fed? He is young, are you teaching him words yet? Years ago I had a Bird Shop and raised Cockatiels:) Now I have a parrot that I love but he is so loud! He says.. I love you..Peek a boo... Hello.. He barks like the dog and other stuff:) Your bird is very pretty:)

    Beautiful bird enjoy, I like birds too, just wish they didn't take after one person so much. It took me years to get a bird my dad got me for my 4th birthday to like me. She only liked my dad. Didn't start taking to me till i was about nine and could really take care of her myself, died a few years later, but at least I got a few years of bonding in

    Yes, he was hand fed and has been trained to "step up". He seems to be settling in just fine - can tell already that he likes to be out of his cage :)

    When hubby got home he informed me that I have misspelled his name - it should be Chico - okay, I flunked spanish :oops:

    I have a Cinnamon Pearl, won't talk, must be a female, it started talking and copied some of my whistles, stopped and now only squawks. Name is Suky.
    I had a female, she didn't know it and she talked, big vocabulary and several whistles, realized she was a female and stopped talking. Have fun with Cheeko. He fluffs up like he is cold.
