I was given these birds as a gift. They were lovely and so beautiful. Unfortunately, I also had 3 cats who thought they looked like dinner. I kept them about two years and taught them to fly around the house (while the cats were closed in another room) then return to their cage.
I gave them to a woman who had an entire room devoted to birds, so they did not have to spend so much time in a cage. However, they were very friendly and loves to sit on my head or shoulder. I never did get them to mimic, but they loved to sing. I would recommend having birds to anyone with the time and space to care for them.
