also if you ,or anyone you live with have allergies to birds, Cockattos, cockatiels ,& African Greys are the worst for allergy sufferers ,cause of the powder they have all the time.
Yep, I'm actually slightly allergic to Chaz... But only if he's on my shoulder for 30+ minutes at a time.
Having Chaz again convinced me that I'd love to get 2-3 budgies.. I love them and my dad loves birds, my mom loves the singing (I don't know how she loves Chaz's singing, it sounds awful. LOL!!) and my brother thinks they're cool.

I have a Pineapple Green Cheek Conure-Scooter, a Yellow Sided Green Cheek Conure-Skittles and a Quaker Parrot-Gizmo. Scooter has a vocabulary of at least 100 words and talks ALL the time. Skittles has a vocabulary of about 50 words. Gizmo knows a couple words, but prefers to not talk.
My ma (currently) has three: a Congo Grey, a Timneh Grey, and a Quaker. She's told me that they're willed to me as I'm the only one of us "kids" she can trust to take care of them -- at the rate her Quaker is going I joke that I'll be getting him as well.
There's a Green-Cheek Conure at work though that I want for myself. He's a little quirky/off for a Green-Cheek, at least compared to the ones we've had before him, but I think he's neat. That and the other day he decided that he liked me and proved to be a very playful little guy. Of course, that made me wish I could have him even more!
His name's Louie -- short for Lucifer. If I could have him I'd keep it: Louie Lucifer.
