Kiwi, the Pet of the Day
Name: Kiwi
Age: Eleven years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Jenday Conure
Home: Marietta, Georgia, USA
   Although extremely loud, Kiwi is a sweet little colorful bird that loves to cuddle up on a shoulder and watch television. In the winter, she likes to hide under a flannel shirt to keep warm. She eats dinner at the table with us, and begs for food by hanging upside down by one foot. Some food she likes to eat, besides sunflower seeds, are grapes, chicken, hamburgers, noodles, rice, potatoes, milk, and any fruit juice. She'll grab the food in one foot and hold it while she eats. Kiwi earns "treats" (Froot Loops) when she says her name or rings her bell. Some other things she says are "You're a bird-head," "look who's here," and "Kiwi-bird." She loves to play games, and will throw kisses or scream for attention. She has a scheduled bed-time, and if nobody covers up her house, she'll sit inside and cry, or throw her seeds on the floor. If you can handle giving a bird some TLC, perhaps a Jenday is good for you!
