My Mom came to my breeder's.I was just a little chick in a box with other babies.My breeder's wife was very sick and they had to sell us fast.I saw Mom and knew I just had to go home with her so I looked right at her and squawked ! I was to little to talk yet but I still got her attention !. Awards

Hi! My name is Zippy

I am an Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet from Genoa, WV.


11 years old   M

Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet

Apples,melons,s- trawberries,Nut- raberries,birdi- e bread.

I like to play in the kitchen while Mom cleans.I supervise.I like to hang out on her shoulder when she feeds the little birds[tiels and budgies]I always say,feed the birdies,so Mom doesn't forget.You know how human are ! When we feed the tiels I always say,There Spike,so Spike will feel special.I like to play with David,Mom's human baby.He has a cool room.I sit with him and tell him how to beat the video games he plays.

When I can't have the TV remote.I have my own but I WANT THEIRS ! When Casper the G/Too screams.I try to scream back too but I'm to little to get that loud.

She makes sure I have everything a birdie could need,good food,clean cage,baths,toys- ,play time,vet checks[well I don't like that]and she tells great stories.Plus she loves me and the other birdies very much.

If I don't get my way I will wait a bit then bite your lip ! HARD ! I like to watch bird videos online. I try real hard to get those big glass chickens in the kitchen to talk but they never do. I love to play Peek A Bird. Ilove to be told stories about owls,chickens,w- hipperwills,pig- s,ducks,cats and dogs waking everybody up,then I tell my toys the stories. I tell Casper to be quiet when he gets loud..

Be kind to all creatures,what comes around goes around..

Zippy, you are just so cute, when is Mom posting some new phots? and where are your Videos on You Tube? What's new in WV? Anything exciting, is it getting cool yet? How are you feeling with the molting thing? Better I hope!! Remember to tell my Mom the deal with it, so she's not scared when it happens to me. I have a new word "What cha doin" I guess since Mom yells it out to me from around the house all the time, I caught on. I won't let M & D touch my feet but now Mom kisses my toes when I grab on the front of my cage from the inside, I LOVE IT!! I think she does, too. So now she added "kisses" to my word talking study list. LOL What ever she wants, it me attention. Let me know whats up!

Come visit me, LUCKY, LOUIE Hi! Pals, LIBBY LU - Hi Pals! & LACIE.

I'm sorry your molting and not happy. Have you molted before? What age do you birds molt & how often? Your Mom has had birds for a long time & lots of them & sounds like she knows all the right things & tricks. We're new at this bird thing and my Mom's Mom has passed away, so she doesn't have her to ask. She has a amazon parrot she brought back in a basket as a baby from Columbia 40 yrs ago, Elsa is still alive. I do like baths, I'm very picky about staying clean. But I also like being able to splash water on Mom/cage/walls & floor. plus Mom thinks I'm "Such a Silly Boy" when I dip my head in my big water bowl and shake it everywhere. Then when she keeps egging me on I get my whole body in and by the time I'm done all the water is gone & I'm wet from head to tail. But then Mom gets worried sometimes because she can hear that I got water in my nose. Then she's afraid I might get chilled being wet in the AC, so She takes me outside in the warm screened patio and drys me off, or at least tries because of the "I don't like to me touched thing". Mom's not giving up on that, now everyday she touches me a little, either head, wings, anywhere very softly but I can see everytime she tries to sneek a touch and I move quicker. I know how very badly she wants to pet & love me but not yet! We had a wonderful weekend together. Mom spent 4-5 hrs ea day just playing/tv/napping in her bed. I even whispered sweet words in her ear many times on Sunday. I usually only talk in my sweet conversation voice when I'm in my cage & no one is near by. (drives mom crazy I stop whenever she comes to my cage) I'm heading to bed, nite-nite! Hope you feel better!!!

Hi! Thanks for visiting me & the vote! How are you today? You are just so cute! You really started talking early, got any advice? Any tricks? I keep trying, my Mom has faith we'll be holding conversations anyday. ha,ha. I think my "Bird Talk" is going good. I got my beak & nails trimed today... OUCH!! But taking a road trip in my yellow travel cage was fun and Dr. Pico said I was very cute & a good boy. Even no biting, yeah! Come visit again, I'm posting my adventures as my "Motto" daily & new photos as Mom takes them. She's really in love. Night! Talk to you soon!

Zippy, You are very cute & sounds like you have a fun house & a really nice Mom! My Mom, Dad & I are a perfect match. They had an empty nest & was just what they needed to fill it perfectly!! At least that's what Mom keeps telling me! Do you talk a lot, is it clear? Mom talks to me constantly, so I like talking, too, even if I'm the only one that can understand me. I'm starting to say something that sounds like my name "Louuuuu ieeeeee" Louie! At least, Mom thinks so. I'm only 6 mths old, when did you start talking? I also laugh & whistle, some. My Mom says I sound just like my brother's squeekie toy, his name is Buster, a Bichon, he likes to watch me & bark from the patio door that my cage looks out on. I have a sister - Bunny Rabbit, she's a Chihuahua, very cute but not interested. I love to play with Mom on her bed & climb on her back. Then I nestle on her shoulder, play with her hair & we watch TV at night together. She gives me all kinds of toys & lets me try all different kinds of treats,fruits & veggies.I really like my roasted peanuts in the shell, tearing the shells open is more fun than the nuts. Have you tried them? Come & look at my new photos every week. I love looking at the camera, it tastes good, too!

  Heya Zippy
How goes things? Planning on having a great 4h? Not me mom has to work till eight, so party hard for me! The ringneck at work is turning out to be such a sweetheart. Mom is thinking about getting it even though we have Ollie! Although I guess she said there are at least three or four other people she works with that are thinking about getting her... so either way it sounds like she is going to end up in a great home, just like you! Off to vote for you now, have a good one and I'll talk to you soon.

Pippin <3

  Welcome Zippy
Welcome Zippy, great to have you on the site...nice flowers there with you, too. I'm moving to a bird sitter can't have me in her office anymore, so not sure how things will go when and if she finds a place for me...I'll keep you posted....she's so good to me and knows all the foods I like. I'm also finished with my molt now so won't be so sensitive and maybe will stop lunging at people when they put their hands near my sore new feather. Have a great day. Comd and see me sometime. Sunshine

Come visit me, OSM Aiden Sunshine.

  Very cute
You like peek a bird too? It's one of my favorite games. My name is Pippin, just wanted to introduce myself. Can't wait to see some more pictures of you! Right now mom is handfeeding a Lutino Ringneck (she works at the local pet store, she's been the bird specialist there for around five years). If she had the room she would love to take him home, but we just adopted a Amazon a little over a month ago so... Here is a vote, stop by and visit me and my new brother some time!
