I will come out of the cage to explore if you leave the door open, but watch where you step as I'm a ground foraging species so I like to search the floor for stray seeds. I will step up sometimes if you offer your hand calmly but otherwise I don't usually mind being gently scooped up in your hands to return to my cage. Lulu isn't quite as brave so she stays in the cage even when the door is open.
We are on a healthy diet of spouted seeds, Harrison's pellets, and chop. Our favorite treats are millet, chopped broccoli and shredded carrots. Our mom loved us very much but was unable to continue caring for us do to financial hardship so she contacted Florida Parrot Rescue to help find us a safe and loving home. We don't take up a lot of space or make much noise so we would be perfect for an apartment or smaller dwelling.
If you could use a little more color and melody in your life we would love to meet you! Perhaps you would like to buy us a "welcome to Rescue" gift? We would sure appreciate it! Here is the link to our Amazon Wish List:
Thanks for reading our story!
Love, Rosie and Lulu
