Angelique, the Pet of the Day
Name: Angelique
Age: Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Cockatiel
Home: Alexandria, Virginia, USA
   This is Angelique, a female pied cinnamon cockatiel. Angelique is about three years old. She was hand fed and raised to be a pet, but her owner had to give her up. She was kept as a breeder for a year and not handled. Now, little by little, we are persuading her people are safe and other birds aren't threatening, and watching as she unfolds into quite the matron of our flock of five adult 'tiels, assorted occasional babies, and four budgies. She is a very special and extraordinarily beautiful bird we are very lucky to have.
