Are there any parrot enthusiasts or parrot owners here on hubpages?
My personal flock includes ten parrots and I love each and everyone of them. Working with parrots is my full time job and I love every moment of it. I have attached a photo of my grandson (whom I hope grows to love parrots) with a baby blue and gold macaw.
In a short space of time, I have attained my life long wish and recieved a Indian Ring Neck two years ago, Goompy by name, you can read about him in my Hubs, of which their are several.
Well he became a magnet and pretty soon we were given another Ring Neck, from someone the Wife works with who was for various reasons unable to keep her/him, as he/she is still a juvie, called Gizmo fro th Gremlin movies.
Then earlier on this year we were asked to take in a Juvie African Grey, Graham , whose owner faced eviction if she carried keeping the parrot who was very raucous during the day, so we grew to 3 parrots and love them all.
Now Goompy will go to fingers and every where else, Gizmo will climb on shoulders, then move around. Graham is still cautious and wont go to hand or shoulders, as I think in his 2 year existence has had 2 previous human companions, so he is very wary still.
Thanks for answering! I was beginning to think that I was the only bird owner here.
I too have an African Grey in my flock. I love listening to him talk. It amazes me the things that comes out of that beak. I am well aware of where some of his statements come from, but every now and then he throws something out there that I have no idea as to where it came from.
It sounds like you are doing a great job with those ringnecks. I will have to check out your hubs to read more about them.
My hubs are all about parrots. You can check them out.

Is keeping a parrot as a pet inhumane?I have always wanted to have a parrot, specifically a cockatoo. Recently, after watching several documentaries on the subject of birds as pets, I am finding it quite distressing and struggling with the humaneness of keeping one; even though I know there are...

How weird is your parrot?When I tap my African Grey Parrot on his beak with a peanut he says "Cmon, cmon,... ya wanna fight" & raises his wings. So I'm trying to get him to also say, "Ya want a piece of me?" Weeks have gone by and he never says it. Today he says,...

I log on every day, and it seems that I always find negative things popping up in the forums. I am sorry that so many people are struggling on HubPages. From SEO issues to having popular hubs unfeatured for a multitude of reasons, it seems very discouraging for any newcomers. When I first got here...
