    Brand new and in love with my parakeet

    Hi, My name is Nena I currently live at the Jersey coast. My parakeet is named Twinkie and I found this chatboard while searching for a list of safe foods to give my DP (that's darling parakeet). I have no idea what age, and I'm leaning towards male since the blue on top of the beak (cere). Not yet finger trained but just now eating food from my hand. Had him a year already. We have had 5 parakeets over the past 25 years- one that lived almost ten years, all of them finger trained. We received this one as a holiday present last winter from our teenager daughter's boyfriend. He likes to watch tv, he goes nuts if I leave the room and just now has started spitting his water at me or trying to feed me seeds when I talk to him close to the cage. I think he thinks I'm his wife. So it's nice to meet you all! I can't post any pics because I don't have a digital camera but your friend, ichbcam has a yellow bird that is identical to my DP Twinkie. Very happy to be here.

    I have introducing food by hand to my DP for about a week now. Today I put some peas into his seed cup to hopefully entice him to try something, anything! He very determinedly and painstakingly picked out every single pea and not just dropped but tossed them all over the bottom of the cage-- indignation! What a card!
