About Us
Pippin, the Pet of the Day
Name: Pippin
Age: Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Major Mitchell Cockatoo
Home: Tasmania, Australia
   Pippin is a Major Mitchell cockatoo who lives in Tasmania, Australia. Pippin lives in cockatoo cottage, separated from our living room by a sliding window. She loves corn and rose hips and, like most Majors, she's very set in her ways. She preens my husband's beard, but even after three years she will let me scratch her head only occasionally. She knows I'm female too! This carries over with our son and daughter. She loves our son, ignores our daughter. Not that it matters; she's a beauty all the same. Pippin has her own home page at Pippin's Page.
