hi i have a semi tame princess parrot we put her in the aviry now to breed.
and did have a black tubbit pigeon that came when my hand was raised out, and more pigeons and some barbary doves that were free flying that landed on our heads and arms,but i think they were too tame,and mistaked a foe as a friend. :-D

Hi all - when did this part of the forum start???? I was hoping you would add other birds - thank you!! :)

We have the following hand-raised pet birds -

2 x cockateils - CJ (female) and Matilda (male)
1 x male galah - Banjo
1 x male gang-gang - Irwin
1 x male king parrot - Arthur
1 x male sun conure - Whisper
and our latest addition, 1 x male Major Mitchell - Lawson

They all co-exist quite happily in a 4m x 5m dome top aviary with two rabbits, two guinea pigs and two male scarlet chested parrots. We bring the conure and the major mitchell inside sometimes to have some family time, and then they go back outside to fly and be birds.

I have some photos of our birds to post "off topic" in the gallery, showing just how well they all get along. They are a lot of fun!

Deb :-D

I have a white dove which my dog found nearly 7 years ago which is quite tame although she is a bit of a b*tch.
