    Plum headed parakeet-need info

    Today was my birthday, and I found myself at the petstore looking for gifts for my Alfred, (pearl cockatiel), when I discovered the cutest little babies I've ever seen. After a long conversation with the owner of the store I decided that i have room for another birdie.
    When I got home, I hopped on the computer to investigate, and I can't find a whole lot of info on them, not like I could with my tiel.
    Does anyone know if the plum headed parakeets are good talkers, do both genders speak?, and lastly, what is their life expectancy? These are all questions I forgot to ask, because I was so excited!
    I am going in tomorrow to hand feed my baby, and will continue to go in daily for feedings until it is ready to come home. I am very excited, and any insight on this type of bird would be very welcome!

    Thanks,
    Jennifer

    comes from being a librarian...hehehehehe. I may "work" as a webmaster (and thorougly love doing it), but I was trained as a librarian. A.k.a., when we're asked an intriguing question, we just "have" to find the answer!

    Those are beautiful birds, by the way. I would love to see one in person.
