Mr. Too's Info...
Mr. Too is a super sweet heart and loves everyone once you get to know him. Mr. Too has the typical gorgeous white and orange/peach crest up top with all his feathers, but has a toe that goes in the wrong direction, possibly from incorrect or lack of perches. His nails are also currently very long from lack of previous grooming, but that will get under control and we will work on it slowly over time so as not to hurt him. He has a wonderful disposition and is a real “Velcro” bird who prefers to be with you as much as possible and would hang out with you all day long if you let him. Mr. Too just needs time to get used to strangers and people he doesn’t know, you just need to go very slow with him. He did not come to us from an ideal situation with his previous owner passing and then being handed down to a family that was not bird friendly, so he has some insecurities because of that. He is however a typical Cockatoo and can be LOUD when he is feeling ignored or lonely but does entertain himself quite well for the most part, for a cockatoo anyway! Mr. Too was on an unknown diet so we now have him on a pellet diet with Harrison's and zupreem as well as fresh vegetables and some fruit. He enjoys whole nuts like almonds in the shell as treats and he will try anything you offer. He is especially fond of sweet potatoes and ripe bananas. Mr. Too seemed a little spooked by dogs at first, but has done well around my Great Dane with time and space. We were told he preferred women but have NOT seen a preference as he goes to my adult son with no issues, we just think he needs to build back trust in humans that want to love and show him attention!!
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.
