Default Bird

I was always curious about how old Bird was, maybe you guys can help me with these pictures of him? Below is a long story about how I got him.




When I moved to our new house I was only about 10 years old (18 now).The previous people who lived here were already family friends. One was a girl who was going off to college and couldn't take her parakeet they called Bird (how original right?).They ended up asking if I wanted him and of course I couldn't resist! Bird was my first pet, as my grandmom(Who we used to live with) was allergic to anything with fur or feathers and I could never have a pet!

Bird wasn't hand tamed when I first got him but he sang some cute song that we couldn't figure out what it was! After about a month Bird was completely tamed! He loved coming out of the cage, he sat on my shoulder and talked to my ear saying words like, Pretty Bird, Prettiest Bird, he mimicked a kissing noise and a sneeze, he sat on my pen while I did my homework, tried to hop on the glass of water I always drank LOL! Bird was just my best friend basically, he was amazing! He was paper trained (you heard me right LOL), he loved playing with my hair and hoping up and down my arm. He was the sweetest little guy ever... sadly after 5 years of having him, he passed on. Gosh I miss him so much!

From your description he was at least eight, but once they are fully mature, it isn't really possible to guess the age. Still eight is doing well these days.

I am sorry for your loss. Ir is always hard to lose a friend.

He was very pretty. It is always hard to lose a pet, especially the ones we had when we were children. May he rest in peace.
RIP Bird.

Awww, I'm sorry to hear about Bird. He sure was a beautiful blue. I am glad you posted here to share your fond memories of your little friend. Any idea what happened?

Fly high, fly free, fly forever little one.

Hello Brittany. Bird was a handsome little guy. He was obviously loved and taken care of. It's always hard when we lose one of our little friends. It never gets any easier and it never should. We love them and will miss them.
Now he's flying high with the angels.
