I've been wanting a male plumhead for about 3 years. I got Zoey my female 2 1/2 years ago and finally got Alex a week and a half ago. I've known about this breeder for along time, but there was a waiting list for males.
I had a very hard time naming Alex. I couldn't find a name that I liked that would fit him. Alex the African grey passed away on September 6th, and it was then that I decided his name would be Alex. I was so saddened by Alex death and it just felt right giving my special little new commer a very special name.

Hi! My name is Alex

I am a Plum-Headed Parakeet from Ypsilanti, MI.

No, not yet

7 years old   M

Plum-Headed Parakeet

nutriberries. I think he just discovered them. Also, Alex loves anything orange, like winter squash, carrots and orange bell peppers

So far on the front of his cage

Leaving him alone in the bird room. He loves company and gets lonely very easily and will chirp until someone comes back in. bird, human, anyone?

She makes me feel comfortable in my new home and also gives me two comfort feeding each day

He's already learned to do the flip in his cage. He learned it from his older sister Zoey. He faces the corner grabs the sides of the cage and flips all the way down, then all the way back up..

If there's enough room on a shoulder get there before someone else does!.

  Hi from Fortune ,St. Patrick D'bird and Lonnie
It is good to hear from you. Hope you are enjoying 2008. We have had fun today. Mommy let me to get aquainted with the puppies. I love it. When they would walk up to me on the floor, I would raise my umbrella and flap my wings at them and say Wheeeeeee. Bo and Luke would run away and come back again to see if I would do it again. Mom only let me twice. She was afraid I would quit playing and go on the chase. No fun........hehe I wouldn't hurt them. Tennessee won their game and my skin sis called..She is happy. Well, gotta go check on my other friends. Cheech to you later. xoxoxo Fortune

  Hi Alex
V4U I got some more new toys today, so my cage is full now. She gave me some mash, and I didn't know what to do with it, but I know what to do with birdie bread. I was a little angry about the interior decorating, but I got a bath so I am a happy bird now. Fly on by my cage anytime. I hope you have a wonderful new years. May 2008 be the year of the bird~~Buddy

  Hi Alex
Carino here. Thought I would stop by and say hello and thanks for the visit. Tell your Mom I am voting for all of you but may not leave a blog on every page. As you know we have a huge family and mom says her fingers hurt from the typing she has to do for us. I wish I knew how to type. I could help mom, but she is afraid that I will poop on the key board. I would never do that!! I am a lady!!..LOLOL Have to run, mom made us a special Squash Birdie Bread today..Yummy!!!
Here's a vote for you..
Wing hugs and beak kisses,

  Hi Alex
So Zoey gets a snotty nose too? Maybe Xerxes is allergic, but the doc gave him medicine for an infection. You mean she doesn't have to take medicine? The Vet said he got some food in his nose??? I do hope he's OK...or I will have to ask mom for another little baby so I can bite his lil baby feet. Thanks for flying by my cage to chat~~Uzi

  Hello Alex, namesake of my idol
I hope you are having a glorious life in your new home. So...how's it going? I had a great day. I got some Pomagranates. YUMMY!!!! My brother Xerxes went to the vet. Mom told me he had a snotty nose. I have never had one of those. Do you think I should get one so she talks so much baby talk to me like she does him? What a baby he is!!!! I guess he is OK. Mom moved me to the other side of the bird room so I can't bite his toes...but I like to nibble on the Xerxes toes. No Fair!!!~~Uzi

  Hi Alex
Have I told you I love your name? Thanks for flying by my cage. The lady that found me with my broken leg still calls mom to see how I am doing. She is a really nice lady, but was not a crazy bird lady like my mom...and guess what? I don't bite her...not at all. Her little precious Scratch does sometimes, but I don't. I love my new home. I got some corn and apples AND some birdie bread today. Do you like birdie bread yet? I slipped and hit that voty thing while I was here~~Big Bird
