Facts about Pebbles
- Breed: Macaw
- Color: Unknown
- Age: Unknown
- Sex: Female
My name is Pebbles!
I am in need of an experienced adopter.
Pebbles is a very timid Blue & Gold Macaw. Her owner was seriously ill and had to give up her birds. Pebbles and the lady's other birds were moved to a home where there was no human interaction. Pebbles did not take well to the absence of her owner and aggressively began plucking her own feathers. She has plucked so long, it is questionable if she'll ever be fully feathered again.
Still, Pebbles is a really sweet bird. She loves the attention she is getting now. She likes to play with fingers, either holding them or putting one in her mouth! She is very gentle and seems happy to be where she can see people and other birds all day. Don't be deceived by looks; this young lady is a sweetheart, who would make a wonderful companion for an experienced bird person.
Pebbles' approximate hatch date is 1999, and her adoption fee is $300.
