Steeler, the Pet of the Day
Name: Steeler
Age: Eleven Months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Zebra Finch
Home: Byron, Georgia, USA
   Though I shouldn't have favorites, Steeler is that of our four finches. What makes him so special is that he really is a "mama's boy." When my husband and I first bought him in Las Vegas, NV, we held him and rubbed his head with our index finger. After we let him go, he would just sit there on top of his cage and look at us rocking his head back and forth. He gets daily time out of his cage, and he loves to fly around the house at high speeds. He is only 13 grams, and about 3 inches tall but is lovingly referred to as "the fat one" of our birds, since he puffs up his feathers when he's cold or even just sitting around.
