When I was young, my parents purchased Ziggy from a local pet store. She stood out because she was very friendly, and unbelievably outgoing. She was not shy at all, and engaged in conversation with us right away (as much as she could). She was also very attractive to look at because she was a beautiful red color, and had green and yellow wings.

After bringing her home, we found out how impressive her vocabulary really was. She was a very smart bird, and we were able to teach her new words and phrases. She would even join in when you were laughing. She would also call to us when she wanted something, and even went as far as teasing the cat! She was extremely loving, and very affectionate. She would give out kisses, and sit on your shoulder while you walked around.

The only downside was that she could obviously be very loud, especially during her baths (which she LOVED). She also had VERY runny stools, so maintaining a clean cage is a MUST. Just a warning, be prepared for trimming this birds nails OR find someone who is experienced to do so. They have black feet and claws, so you want to make sure that you don't cut them TOO short.
