Hi, my name is Baby. I'm an 8yr old female Quaker - I know I'm a girl 'cause I laid an egg one time about 4 or 5 years ago. I once had a home where I was very much loved, but sadly my owner passed away earlier this year and I lost my home. Some very nice people took me in for a little while, but they had dogs that scared me and thought I'd be happier with a family who were more into birds like me. So here I am, looking for a new home where I can be loved and love someone in return.
I've never lived with other birds before, but my foster mom has some and I'm looking forward to meeting them. I don't mind them being around, but I think I prefer the company of my foster mom and dad more, and I get along with both my foster parents really well - I really like to just sit with them or hang out on their shoulder whenever I can. I really like it when they talk to me and make little kissy sounds - I'll make 'em right back and put my head down just so they can both pet me. They think that's real cute so I ham it up big for them! I can be kind of shy when you first meet me, but be gentle and talk softly to me and I'll warm up to you real quick, and I absolutely LOVE to be snuggled up in a towel while you hold me and preen the feathers on my head that I can’t get to.
Oh, and about my feathers, you may have noticed that I'm missing a few... Ok, a lot actually... but only on my torso and legs - I've left my wings and tail alone... It’s a habit I've had all my life. My foster mom said the vet told her that I may never be able to grow them back at this point, but if you can get by my looks, you'll see that I can be a sweet, loveable little girl who just wants your attention, love, and to be out with you whenever I can be. I have a nice big cage, and my foster mom just gave me lots of new toys and perches. So will you come see me and maybe give me another chance at a forever home?
