Chipper, the Pet of the Day
Name: Chipper
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Kind: Cockatoo
Home: Columbus, Ohio, USA
   Chipper is a cockatoo and he is very smart. He is very good at getting out of his cage. He barks, growls, rings like a phone, talks a lot and likes to swing, hang upside down, and is trying to perfect the escape artist.

    Chipper demands a lot of attention. If you walk out of the room he will ring like a telephone or even yell for someone to come back into the room. When they say that these birds are "one-person birds" it is very very true. He has bitten my wife several times but me only once. Our dog Rudy is a very sweet and timid and likes to play with Chipper. She is a mommy's dog and if Rudy starts barking, Chipper will growl at Rudy and also start to bark. Chipper is very smart and very special to us.
