Pretty Bird's Info...
I am not good with kids.
Pretty Bird is a female Eclectus. She's hand tame and likes to share meals with her foster family. She prefers a calm environment; therefore, she may not like being around small children or living in a noisy atmosphere. If she is scared she will let out a high-pitched screech.
As you can see Pretty Bird is a feather picker, especially when she finds herself in new situations. She is quiet and easy going, though. She makes quiet cooing sounds when she is happy or wanting attention. She also says, "Hi" and "Step up," and she barks like a Chihuahua!
Pretty Bird tolerates some petting but generally does not like to be rubbed on. Her favorite place to hang out is on your shoulder. She loves to eat fruits and most vegetables. She is very gentle when taking food from your hand, and she is very careful not to drop it once she has a hold of it.
Pretty Bird is initially nervous when meeting a new person but will come around fairly quickly in a calm environment. Eclectus parrots don't produce any feather dust, as they have oil glands rather than dust glands for preening. This is a great option for people who have allergies.
Pretty Bird's approximate hatch date is 2001, and his adoption fee is $200.
