My fiancee got me a parakeet this weekend for Sweetest Day. This is the first bird I have ever owned and I was wondering if any of you had some advice on taming and training it, or just general care.

And if that doesn't work, grab it like this:

And squeeze really hard! :lol:

fwiw, if you don't teach it to 'talk' it's squaking will drive you nuts, and you may be driven to kill it. At least, I've entertained thoughts of offing my friends conyer before.

I give up. This board is too hard to understand.
we had a bird once... we named him Eddie Murray after the baseball player. my wife woke up one morning to find him hanging upside down on his perch... dead. he bought the farm and still hung on to the perch!

It's harder to get a parakeet to talk than it is a parrot or a cockatoo. If you train them when they are young, they will sit on your shoulder while you walk around. We had one when I was a kid, but it escaped one day when we were cleaning it's cage outside and never came back-I wonder how it liked Ohio winters...............

I should of known it would be impossible to get a real answer here, but thanks for the laughs.

I've named the bird Daya, which is the Hebrew word for "bird". So far the thing just sits in its cage not making a noise. I told it this morning that I'm not running a welfare state so it better start doing something to earn its keep or it will be out on the street--which is not to say that seeing a caged animal is not entertaining.

I don't think it cared for me eating chicken wings in front of it yesterday either.
