|Breed:||Poicephalus (including Senegal and Meyer's)||Color:||Green||Age:||Adult|
This adorable 8 year old senegal will you tell his name is Ricky, laugh at your jokes, cough with you when you're sick and tell you to "C'mere baby". He also likes to make the sounds of running water and of course, beep like the microwave. Ricky is hand tame, loves attention, shows no fear of anything new and seems to like everyone he meets. Ricky can be vocal towards early evening, but that seems to be his signal for bedtime. He came to us on a colored pelleted diet, but is easily transitioning to a high quality pellet without color or sugar. As you can see by his beak, Ricky loves his chop and these pictures were taken right after dinner. He is in good feather with some minor over preening and a little on the plump side This should be corrected quickly with a better diet and enrichment toys. He enjoys his foraging dish and is rediscovering his love to destroy smaller wood toys. If you are looking for a lovable smaller parrot to join your flock, please consider giving Ricky a wonderful home.
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.
