FRANKIE

Umbrella Cockatoo

Talk:  Yes, can say "hello", "hi" and "I love you"

Tame:  Yes

Reason for Re-homing: Snowflake is an incredibly friendly and energetic parrot who loves nothing more than spending time with people.  Unfortunately, Snowflake, like most cockatoos, requires of a lot of attention and my family and I already have two other parrots in our household, in addition to a puppy and two kittens, none of whom she gets along with.  We love Snowflake and she is a member of our family, but we worry that she is not receiving the love and attention that she deserves in our home.

Tame:  Yes

Reason for Re-homing: Owners are retiring and relocating and are unable to take Sunny with them.  It is breaking their hearts to put him up for adoption.  We are looking for someone who will really enjoy and give him lots of love.

Notes:  Sunny is a beautiful, smart and loving bird.  He is very sociable.  He loves to be handled, petted and cuddled. He is truly a lap bird and he lays on owners lap every morning while newspaper is read.  He loves to play outside, running around on back deck, front porch and lawn.  He loves taking showers and having his feathers blown dry.  He gives his foot to clip his claws and also trim his flight feathers.  He loves to chew up blocks of wood and boxes that are placed in his cage.  He is a busy bird.  He will come with a large cage and lots of toys.  Owner has had birds for 50 years and Sunny is the best bird owner has ever had.
