I have 2 love bird parakeets(?) but alll they do is chatter and are very antisocial. Does anyone have any social bird breeds other than parrots?

LOL parakeets are so pretty but so obnoxious. I wanted some until my friend bought a pair.

My dad had a cockatiel for a few years and we all loved him. He was so funny and would say “Hey Bird-Brain”. His favorite game was “Envelope”, which is a game where you would put an envelope over him and he would chirp away. He would also steal drinks of your soup if you didn’t watch him carefully.

parakeets are parrots though, and I’ve seen some pretty sociable ones :). I think most non-parrots commonly kept as pets are unsociable towards people—the only type of bird that comes to mind are finches.

I have a cockatiel and a lovebird—the cockatiel is sociable but won’t let you pet him—the lovebird is literally a lovebird :) she’ll kiss you at any opportunity lol.

I’m not sure if it started because he just liked to be under things, or if someone taught him. He had an owner before my dad. Contrary to what tightsandtea said, he would let my dad pet him, but I wasn’t around enough for him to get comfortable with me. He would sit on my shoulder tho.

He had another game where he would pick up any piece of paper or mail off the table, take little nibbles out of the edges, and then throw it on the floor. Then he would peer over the edge and squawk at it.

I meant my own pet cockatiel :) a family randomly gave him to us while we were at the pet store getting our lovebird (they had to move away?) and I guess they never petted him, because he would always hiss when we tried.

and my birds loove paper too! when I was a kid I used to fold paper up, let them nibble at it for a day or two, and hang it like snowflake art haha. although, it was usually covered in sh*t too :P
