Your dream parrot...

If money were no object, what would your dream parrot be? What parrot have you always admired (for whatever reason you have) but never had the opportunity to adopt?

For me, I think I have my dream parrot: a quaker. They're cute, smart, quirky, and fun. I used to always want an African grey, or a senegal, or maybe even a macaw for myself - but Harpo (my quaker) is so fulfilling, and has brought so much joy to my life, that I don't think I could be any more satisfied, nor could he ever be replaced.

Best Regards from
Nick and the flock:
Lily & Linden - Lineolated Parakeets | Oscar & Maya - Parrotlets | Harpo - Quaker

Hmm... I think it would be either a Hawk-headed Parrot or a Hyacinth Macaw or a Queen of Bavaria Conure... I change my mind, I want one of everything!

I would love to own a Black Lory. Otherwise a Meyer's Parrot would be pretty awesome too!

If money were no object I would love to have a real bird room with at least a Palm Cockatoo and a Hyancinth. The more the merrier!

If I were younger I would have a TAG. But I would also love some Rosy Bourkes.

A female Eclectus.

They're just so pretty! I've always admired those parrots, and their temperment sounds just right for me, too. I don't think I'll be getting one of those anytime soon, but I can dream.

A Meyers Parrot.. I love them.. But I also want a Cockatoo. Too bad they are sooo expensive and hard to train (they misbehave a lot, don't they?).

Toos don't misbehave much as long as you're fairly strict with them and maintain a constant routine. It's when things are inconsistent that they start to have problems. And you have to be tolerant of screaming!

I can handle noise pretty well, but I think my roommates will kick me out of the house!

A conure, any type but I like green cheeked, sun, and jenday conures best. I'd love to have one like Marit's Koda too

Quaker I think.
Though most are my dream parrots, I guess.
I love mine, but Quaker's my 'dream' bird because I'm not currently in a situation where I could keep a loud parrot in the same room I work from.

Honestly, i can't say i ever want anymore birds then what i have now. I recently Loss Scooter a female budgie in my spangle genes (was going to be a future breeder for a DFS) and nearly loss hugs a male cockatiel. I've spent near $500 in tests and things to yet have a result as to why they got sick and its hard. I really don't Think i will get anymore birds now.

I did at one point really want a Slate linnie. Gosh i'm just inlove with them.
