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!
