I saw a "Bin o' Budgies" at a petco near my house. I thought that it might be cool owning a bird (I didn't know much about birds)and told my parents. They decided to get me a bird cage for valentines day. Of course I had to buy the bird, toys, and other essentials myself. He still doesn't know me very much, but he likes me enough to let me into his cage. Infact he's so much attatched to me that he freaks out if I leave the room for even 10 minutes. He absolutely loves me but is afraid of my hands. He's young and doesn't fly very well, we're not even sure how old he is or what gender. Although we thinks he's a male..

Hi! My name is Dusk

I am an Australian Parakeet from Front Royal, VA.



6 years old   M

Australian Parakeet

I just got him recently and he refuses to try any fresh produce. I did however get him to eat some millet spray and now he's crazy over it!

He likes his little, fake, bamboo nest, and the he also likes to hang out ontop of a logg that hangs from the top of his cage.

My bird is really young and is afraid of hands.

My owner is a very nice person. I love it when she reads a loud to me from The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. She's very nice and talks to me lots, but I wish she stop putting those strange white things attached to her wrists into my cage... They're scary! I love the millet she buys me! Yum-yum-yummy! She's such a nice flock member!

We had to change his food dish because he liked to jump into it and start diging. He would throw food all over the floor, into his water dish, bathtub, and well... pretty much everywhere actually. He also has a weird habbit of standing on one legg..

Motto? I just like living life at my own pace!.

  Hi Dusk!
Hi, I'm Beaker and I'm a parakeet too. Welcome to BC! I hope you enjoy yourself here and make lots of friends. Hands aren't really that scary once you get used to them, I know they look like they want to grab you but really they just want you to stand on them! Don't ask me why, humans are strange. The petstore probably clipped your wings, but they'll grow back soon and then you'll have a blast flying, like I do! Here's a vote for you! -BEAKER

Come visit me, Jack Sparrow II & Beaker.
