BB

Plucking:  Plucks

Vet: ?

Tame: Yes

Diet: Kaytee Fiesta Parrot Mix

Behavior:  Nips, screams for attention

Talk:  Limited

Reason for Re-homing: Darby was inherited. Although she can be very sweet when spendign time with her, because of our work schedules, she spends a great deal of time along.

Notes: Darby deserves a home where she has an opportunity to be loved and socialized. Our current work schedules do not allow for us to spend as much with her as we'd like or as she deserves and playing music and hanging toys has not improved the situation. I hope she can find a forever home where she will find all that and more.
