Anastasia, the Pet of the Day
Name: Anastasia
Age: Eleven years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Double Yellow Head Amazon
Home: Gardena, California, USA
   Her real name is Anastasia but we call her Annie. She hatched on June 29, 1989 which makes her ten years old soon to be eleven. She is a Double Yellow Head Amazon. In November of 1988 I was working in a Pet Shop and fell in love with two birds. We purchased them and set them up to breed. We were told it would probably take about two years before we would get any babies since, at the time, Amazons were hard to breed. The following June we had two babies. The whole city heard me scream when she hatched. Her parents' names are Moshe and Sasha and I decided she need a Russian Sounding name that reflected the princess that she was so 'Anastasia' It was. She lives in our living room along with six other Amazons. She is very 'prissy' and acts like she is a princess. She will always have a special place in my heart as "Baby #1" We also own a business that manufacturers Bird Toys and she has been a model in our catalog for the past eleven years.
