Facts about Lu-Man

  • Breed: Parakeet - Quaker
  • Color: Green
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: Lu-Man
Hello! My name is Lu. My foster Mom calls me the Lu-Man – or sometimes “The Mean Green Terrorizer!” I am a 5 year old quaker parrot and my foster Mommy says I am very special. I had an accident with my beak that has left me with only a partial beak on one side, but I am able to get around just fine and I am eating regular pellets, chop, fresh vegetables and fruits, and healthy nuts – almonds are my favorite nuts! However, I also go crazy over Caitec Birdie Munchie Cookies and I have to have chop every day, or I will vocalize until I get it! My care is a little bit specialized though and FPR says I will only be adopted to the right family. I do live in a very large aquarium which has to be cleaned every night before bedtime, rather than a regular parrot cage. I also have to go to the vet every month for a beak trim – this needs to be done by an avian vet to make sure it is done in a very specific way so that I am can still get around and eat properly. Don’t worry though – my small handicap does not take away from my bite! I can be very territorial of my cage and I only like certain people. In fact, when I pick the person I trust, watch out - you better not come near, because I will defend that person from you! My chosen person enjoys shoulder time with me and a nice preen of their face and hair. I don’t like hands though – even the hands of my chosen person, so I only step up in a certain way – don’t worry, my foster mom can show you, it is easy. With more time, I may learn to trust your hands as long as you are very patient and loving with me. I really hope that you will come and visit with me soon. In the meantime, maybe you can send me some of my favorite things thorough my wish list at: All gifts are greatly appreciated!


While The Lu Man still only has half a beak (he will never have a full beak as the growth plate was damaged) more than 1.5 yrs after he was bitten on his beak by another bird, he is finally healed and has graduated from living in an aquarium to a real cage! He seems very happy about the progress he has made!
