One loud bird

Somehow our parrotlet did not get the memo that his breed is a quiet one!

We used to keep him in the family room but our teen likes to have it quiet when he studies and I didn't want a parrot that could say "Shut up, Jimmy." ; )
(which by the way, doesn't work)

So now we keep him in the living room where he competes with me when I read aloud. Ugh!

"Guess what is the only thing that will make him be quiet?
When we say:
"Jeeee-sus loves you!" (in a really high pitched voice)

He will usually completely stop his squawk/chirping and its like he's pausing to reflect on that thought for a minute or two. LOL

~It is rather funny to hear people throughout the day getting frustrating and stopping midsentence in their conversations to say "Jeeeee-sus loves you, Jimmy."
Yes, His love is strong even though ours is waning! ; )
And hopefully he'll be saying it back to us one of these days.

That is hilarious. He could become the first evangelist bird.

Wow, I wonder if he could preach a message? Your first commenter was right! So tell me, you've been so in love with Jimmy. Is the bloom off the rose?
