  • i have 1 now (i've had her for 8 years now)....i used to have a husband for her too, but he died last year (he was 7 or 8 i guess). i did not get the hand-raised ones, so the closest she will come to me is eating a treat from my hand lol. i change her paper, food and water every day. they are pretty messy (i guess you know that lol). the male was messier than the female though lol. she was laying eggs for awhile, but now she's stopped. she is so silly she would lay them from her perch and they all cracked. she's not the brightest lol. what colors are yours? my female is lutino (yellow), but the male was just grey.

  • ook. well i will say that the albino and lutino ones are a little bit crazy lol. so he will take alot of patience. but my male was like that too, and the female also. she was sick when i first got her and i had to give her medicine wearing a leather glove because she would bite me so bad!
