I had always wanted a parrot. Then I met someone that had a conure and knew some breeders. I then spent a year looking into breeders vs pet stores, and what type of parrot would fit into our life style. The African Grey seemed to be the one.
I then found a breeder that was very kind to his birds, let me go into his Bird Sanctuary-breed- ing area, etc. He was very knowledgeable and interested in what Kind of person and commitment I had toward owning a bird. His breeding birds even talked to him as he came into the room. I was impressed.
So, when he had a clutch of birds he called me.
I went to the breeder's house after the first week of Echo and his clutch mate being hatched to learn how to feed and care for an infant parrot. He was soo cute.Then for 3 or 4 days days each week I went and actually feed the little birds until I felt confident and the breeder did too. I was able to bring Echo home at 5 weeks. He has been one of the family ever since.
Echo is very friendly and says HELLO to everyone that comes into the house. He is a very special part of our lives.

Hi Sir Echo, We got to see the Zebra baby for a second. Mommy took a pic of the Zebra Finch's chick today. It is 6 days old. They are supposed to fledge at two weeks...It is growing so fast. Next to the penny you can see how much it has grown.(look for the pic on bottom of Patricks page). We see little pin feathers. Mommy doesn't know if she could hand feed it like Crash or not. Probably not. hehe She is scared of hurting it. Here is a vote for all my Friends. Fortune

  Hi from Buddy!
Yes..I am young and so are my flockmates. But Mom had a cockatiel she gave to a friend who is about 15 now!!She loved him but was moving and didn't want to upset him..so she found someone who would spoil him. You look good for your age..but then again 10 is young!!!Here's a vote!

  Hi from Fortune ,St. Patrick D'bird and Lonnie
Hello Sir Echo, Tell your mom to help you hit the vote button on each page of the friends you want to vote for. Most birdies vote for all their friends. Also other people vote for their favortie birds of the BC. The Bird with the most votes in a week is Bird of the Week or BOTW. The most votes in a month is Bird of the Month or BOTM. You should make lots of friends and if you win BOTW you willl receive a prize in the mail. I hope all my friends get BOTW or BOTM at some times so I vote for all my friends. It is just fun. You can only vote once per day for each friend. I just gave you vote #10. Have a nice evening. Love, Fortune

Hi, Jango,
I'm glad your not green, too. I like the name Jango. It appears the birds in your house are just babies. Mom thinks greys are the best. Everyone that comes into our house is impressed. I guess I have just learned to talk like the family rather than make noises like other birds. I do have my moments when being a parrot requires some vocalization, but for the most part, it is best to just talk. They just don't understand Parrot Talk....these humans just aren't too bright. :)

HiPeanut!
Yep, Mom says "Echo's a good little bird" so much that I say it too, just in case she has any doubts. We don't spend a lot of time teaching me...just hanging out and learning as time goes on. Mom says It is a shame as I am very smart and perceptive. She just likes me being a Parrot...doing parrot things. However, my family is impressed that I say what I do and comment when things happen.
Talk to you soon,
Echo (and Gina)

Come visit me, Sir Echo.
