||One year old|
Neela, my blue indian ringneck parakeet. We're pretty sure he's a
male but won't know 100% until he grows the 'male ring' around his neck
at around two to three years of age. He sure does love to talk, some of
his famous lines include "What are you doing huh", "Hello baby! aren't
you a good boy Neela", "Muuuumm come here, no biting!" He also loves to
make sneezing noises and whistling. Neela learns (or copies) words and
sentences very quickly so we have to be careful what we say around him
because he's always listening!
Some of Neela's favourite daily activities include chewing up his
perches and anything else he can get his beak on, dipping his food into
his water bowl, chasing his tail around in circles, doing his mating
dance to his toy bell and flying around our house. Another favourite is
bath time, he hangs himself upside down and dips his head into the
water, what a mess!
I've never clipped his wings so he is very use to having full flight
around the house ... but once I let him out he's stuck to me like glue -
Yep he's a real mummys boy!
