I've had my Rock Pebbler for 11+ years and he was a wonderful bird. He passed away today and I miss him sooooo much. I'm a retired teacher and I'm 77 years old... I am so sad that he is gone. I loved him so much!

I have a hawkhead that I've had since she was 5 months old. She is a spoiled, stubborn, loud, bossy, over confident, wild-like, self-absorbed, food-obsessed little demon. She is also a very affectionate, playful, funny, in-tuned with my feelings, cuddle monster. I wouldn't trade her for a thing. She views my youngest daughter as her play toy and loves to chase her around daily, multiple times, in fact every chance she gets. My kids have learned to watch VERY closely for body language, even during play, because she is a very rough player and can cause a severe bite. Being aggressive in everything they do is their nature. With me, she is sweet as can be, but I still need to watch body language. I tell people all the time that Hawkheads are not birds for amateurs. They are very high maintenance and require someone who is extremely patient, able to handle hard bites, and is very experienced with other parrots. They are definitely NOT a beginner bird. I have a cockatoo as well, which are notorious for being a high maintenance bird, and I feel that a Hawkhead is on the same level, if not harder. Noise wise, they can be just a loud as a cockatoo, if not more. They also tend to be a lot more unpredictable than a cockatoo. Please, if you are thinking of getting a Hawkhead, be sure to do lots and lots and LOTS of research first. They are not easy birds by far. You will get bitten. You will get rejected. You will get ringing in your ears. You will get all your food stolen ( :P ). BUT, if you are patient and respectful of their nature, you will be rewarded with a best friend that only hates you sometimes, especially when you don't share your food.

I don't get what that is a response to. My post wasn't asking for advice, I was giving it. My hawkhead is played with plenty. In fact, she's spoiled and a big 'mamma's baby'. Also, no, I did not get her from eggsotic parroting.

    Hey kathy, I for one think your info is great! And I also think this is an absolutely fascinating bird. Thanks for sharing:)
  • Gayle - 2014-10-18
    Kathy, your post is absolutely, unequivocally one of the best, most accurate, and unbiased I've ever read on Hawkheads. I've been owned by one for 9 years now and have the scars to prove it!! Everything you said is right-on the mark, and I'd just like to confirm that if anyone is even remotely thinking of buying one of these birds, think again, do more research, talk to other HH owners, and then think again. You need to be prepared for a roller coaster ride of emotional response from these beautiful, loving birds. They can be oh so cuddly and affectionate for an hour, then turn right around and administer an extremely painful, tenacious bite to their human for no apparent reason. The person who commented that perhaps you're not playing with your bird enough is just plain ignorant of the HH species. Even if you've owned other parrot species for 50 years, you have no clue what you're in for if you bring a HH into your life. I ditto this: ' She is a spoiled, stubborn, loud, bossy, over confident, wild-like, self-absorbed, food-obsessed little demon. She is also a very affectionate, playful, funny, in-tuned with my feelings, cuddle monster. I wouldn't trade her for a thing.'

    Well, I'm a lot late, but thank you Gayle for the back up. Lol@I don't play with her enough. That still cracks me up. I've had my HH for about 7 or so years now (I've lost track of time exactly). I still love her to bits, and her me. She stills tries to chase my daughter around, though we don't encourage it any more, as she seems to have moved away from play chasing, and switched to a homicidal maniac rampage now, lol. Instead, we ignore the desire to chase, or cage her if she is insistent on it, because she's just not able to tell the difference between play and mean. Now we do extra cuddling, talking and just being with her.

    I still stand by my original posting here. HH's are different from other parrots in that they are much more unpredictable, aggressive by nature and demanding than other parrots. I have 6 parrots, of 5 different species. Three I've had longer than my HH. She is by far my most demanding and needy one, but also the one I am the closest too. Once again, I wouldn't trade her for anything. She is my baby for life.

    Hi Kathy,
    I have had my hawkhead parrot for 14years, and I also want to say you are spot on. I adore my little HH, but she is work. I find it so funny that they all seem to have such similar tendencies, especially with the food. If I forget to share food with her, she almost tries to remove it from my mouth! You have completely described my little one in all details except one. I also wanted to add he is extremely jealous of my Blue and gold macaw, which is a big problem. I have to make sure I give her her share of treats and affection in equal amount, otherwise there will be trouble. I did get my bird from eggslotic parrots. I wonder what that other person was trying to get at with that comment? Thanks for sharing your comments.

I have 4 of these wonderful fish. 2 have have stripes towards their back end. Why? Also 1 has gone missing. It sounds impossible but I can't find him in the aqurium any where. Does anyone have an idea where he is? I love all my fish very much. It wasn't a cat, none of the other fish ate him, and I didnt see his body in my net or close to the aquruim. Thanks

    Almost every week at least one person writes in that they can't find a particular fish. Most of the time, the fish magically reappear. It also seems that most are found to be just find behind the filter. I have no idea why but this happens frequently. Good luck and I hope you find yours.

    Killifish are notorious for jumping out. You need a lid with little to no gaps around it.
  • kye turnbull - 2011-12-10
    these killis can jump out flip around alot so he could have fliped along way from the tank.
    to stop this you should get a lid.
  • Graeme - 2023-01-26
    To all people that flush in toilets or throw live Exotic fish in water ways.you are helping to destroy delicate ecosystems and bring a negative light on all fish keepers and breeder.Even the master keepers and breeders in this hobby/business.Plus you cause governmental Sections to start banning species of fish or now requiring permits to keep not cool.People like you shouldn't be allowed the great privilege to be able to own any Aquatics or be in this Hobby/Business.

    The stripes indicate the sex of the fish. Male or female.
