Nickel & Sterling's Info...
Nickel and Sterling are a beautiful pair of bonded cockatiels. They are both 9 years old and have always been together.
Nickel is a white faced cockatiel. In the past he had an infection in his left eye which was treated but scar tissue formed so he cannot open the eye. He appears to have good vision in his right eye though. He will step up on our fingers with encouragement. The vet said he was underweight but since coming to his foster home he is eating well. His diet consists of Zupreem pellets and we have introduced fresh fruits and vegetables. He loves to whistle softly.
Sterling is a pearl cockatiel and like Nickel will step up with encouragement. She is also underweight but is eating well here on a diet of Zupreem pellets and fresh fruits and vegetables. Her favorite thing to do is to follow Nickel around the cage and sit close to him. They are very cute together and do not make a lot of noise. They just need a forever home where they will be cared for and loved.
Rescue Group Info...
Florida Parrot Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of companion parrots. We strive to educate parrot owners on proper handling and care of parrots. Should someone be unable to keep their bird(s) for ANY reason, we want them to know there is a place to turn, and that they are not alone. It is our goal to provide a safe haven for birds that cannot stay with their owners or birds in need, and then to find those birds permanent forever homes with loving and responsible families.
Our rescues are located in homes through out the state. We will work with the fosters and potential adopters to set up dates and times.
We require an application which is free of charge, an adoption fee which varies on the bird you wish to adopt. We do NOT adopt our for breeding purposes.
Rescue and rehabilitate abused and neglected birds
Veterinary care and treatment for birds in need
Provide parrot owners with a place to bring their birds in the event that they can no longer keep them.
