Rescue Group: St. Louis Avian Rescue (STAR)
Fred is the sweetest little Goffin. We only know his name. His owner is deceased, and the family could not provide any additional information other than they thought he had only recently begun to pluck. He feathers have come back very nicely since his picture was taken. (Far better than in his pictures.)
Fred's cage is open all day. When we first got him, he was very timid about leaving the top of his cage. He has since really blossomed and expanded his horizons. He now hops up on his foster dad's shoulder every morning to help clean the other bird cages. He also comes upstairs to visit the rest of the flock and get some more loving.
Fred loves kisses, head rubs, and cuddling. For a Cockatoo, he is very quiet. He seldom squawks and even then it is very soft. Fred would make a great companion.
Fred's approximate hatch date is unknown, and his adoption fee is $350.
