Facts about Ollie

  • Breed: Conure
  • Color: Gray
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
Hi, I'm Ollie. I am a Patagonian Conure, and I am about 14 years old. No one really knows if I am male or female, except me, and I'm not telling. I don't remember much about my earlier years, but during that time I plucked a lot of my feathers out. I spent the next 3 years with a loving family, but they had some financial set backs and weren't able to keep me, so I came to Beak n Wings in the summer of 2015. It was hard leaving my family, I had some separation anxiety and was quite noisy for the first few weeks. I have adjusted now and my friendly personality has come out, I step up on a hand or a perch. I love to ride on shoulders, but I get bored after a while and I squawk right in your ear when I want down. I no longer damage my feathers and most of them have come back but, unfortunately, some of my feather follicles were damaged and those feathers won't come back. I am playful, my favorite things are my bell and my foot toys. I say a few words, whistle, and dance to music. When I first came to Beak n Wings, I was eating an all seed diet, but I have come to love my Fruit ZuPreem pellets too. I like a few nuts for treats, but so far I won't touch any fruit, veggies, or table foods...not even French fries. I can't wait to be adopted, my new family will get lots of love. Adoption fee: $250.

Our Adoption Process...

Our rescued parrots live in foster homes, are treated like companions (pets) and rehabilitated if necessary, therefore we have no shelter building. All of our birds stay in our volunteers' homes as fosters. We have found that this provides them with the best environment for successful rehabilitation. Because our birds are in private homes, they are only able to receive visitors by appointment. This is set up after an application has been filled out and a home visit performed. Our adoption process does take some time, generally two weeks. Our priority is not to have a speedy process, but a careful one that ensures proper placement of our companion birds. Multiple changes can be difficult for the bird, and we wish to ensure their safety.
Beak n Wings is not a source to acquire free animals. The adoption fees we charge help us defray costs we incur when providing for the birds in our care. It costs a lot to feed each bird an appropriate diet, and provide appropriate cages, toys, and veterinary care. In fact, veterinary care is usually our largest expense. The exact fees depend on the species of bird and are listed with the birds description.
