Favorite type of pet bird?

To anyone who has had one, or even met one, what is your favorite type of pet bird and why?

I had a cockatiel a while back, but it didn't work out (I'm allergic) but I would like to try having a bird again some day, when I have my own place and am making good, steady money....

Hey there,

I think all birds are lovely but especially budgies, I own 150 of them! They have great personalities and the colour variations are just amazing!!

I met someone with a duck! Quite cool. I wouldn't mind having one if I move out and get a house... but I want an apartment most likely (Depends).

Ducks are quite funny to me, so having one would be interesting since it isn't something you would normally see.

Green cheek conure or sun conure like hannahb121 said. (:

They're very quiet and very affectionate. I had one, her name was Baby. Sadly she past away about 12 days later after she was found outside nearby my old school. I stiill miss her very much. it was 3 years ago and I still honor her because she made a huge impact in my life which I won't forget.

Conures look cute and friendly. I'm so sorry for your loss...
Unfortunately I am allergic to Cockatoos because they have the same powder feathers as cockatiels. I think budgies have those too but they are so small that I don't think it would bother me much.

Doves. They're soothing. Also, African Greys and Macaws are pretty.

fruit doves are pretty too.

Why did I become a fishkeeper in the first place...? Because someone has to look out for the fish who have no one on their side.
