    In the wild they eat mostly the fruit of 2 species of palm tree, and the cutting down of these trees is the reason they're so critically endangered. I feed her a mix of nuts and dried fruit from the grocery store as a staple, but she also eats pretty much everything I do. The only things I eat that I don't let her have are chocolate and coffee. I limit her access to junk food and sweets, and as an fyi advocado is lethal to parrots. I personally don't like them enough to even chance having them in the house, but if you like them keep that in mind.

    After reading your post I promptly began researching avocados & other lethal foods. It seems that a tiny amount is enough to react with a parakeets body. Thats some scary stuff especially after receiving a box of them just last week. I'll be sure to take a -caring for a baby- approach to this since I plant on having the bird comfortably out of its enclosure at some times. The chickens here eat pretty much anything I'm having as well... Luckily they have not yet tried any avocados.

    It sounds like your bird is really loved in your home. Seeing those pics is really something. I'm researching quaker parrots at the moment as hopefully my next new family member in a few months after I get familiar with this budgy. It seems that there are a bunch out of my price range & conures may be 2 much to handle so soon after your advice. lol

    Quakers are wonderful birds, excellent personality, very inexpensive. As noisy as a Conure though, and illegal in PA. They winter over here.On the list of animals you can shoot anytime, no closed season, no limit.

    Well so much for them being any less annoying than conures. For such a common bird you would think they would be cheaper than say a cockatiel. They run anywhere from $150 to $400 here in TX so just under conures in price. Still nicely priced compared to others. The size of those 2 species is what I really like. I'm far from being ready for anything too big. If they are any less annoying than chattering sugar gliders all night long, then I shouldn't be too bothered.
