Ma wants a parrot. she's kept birds my whole life, and it's lonely in the house, not having one. :I
I sure can :) What type of birds did your mom have? The nice thing about Rosie is she'll live a long time, I don't think I'd ever be able to get a short lived parrot because it would be heart breaking when they go. I hope I have Rosie for a very very long time and I don't even want to think about when she passes away.
This is a few months after my friends got her. Her foot is swollen, feathers look horrible and are discolored and greasy, feces is visible on her vent feathers, she is very unhealthy and has extremely weak legs. That's only the beginning of the list too. We know nothing about her past except the lady's husband was going to kill her.
This is about a month after I brought her home, and about 4 years after the above photo. She is still unhealthy, has no feather dust from not getting enough calcium and eating mostly sun flower seeds, her feathers are off colored and brownish still and she's underweight and her feathers are greasy.
Now is the happy part, these are 2 of her photos from yesterday. She has close to no feather dust(better the none), is eating pellets instead of seeds, is still underweight but rather then 250 grams she's now 270grams. She's sleeps less and is more playful then she used to be and sometimes even plays with her toys. Her legs are super strong now and she is getting more exercise in flying exercises.
