Petrie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Petrie
Age: Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Green-Cheek Conure
Home: USA
   Petrie is very unique because she is more bossy and stubborn than most people! She is a spoiled little bird, who always wants her way; at the exact moment she wants it! But I love her so much. She was born in May of 1999. (I'm not sure of her exact hatch date). She was hand-feed by the breeder and then came home with me when she was about two or three months old. She is also probably the most photographed Conure on the web! I have a website devoted to her with information on conures and of course, Pictures of Petrie!! Her website is here.

    Petrie was my first "real" parrot (I had only had budgies previous to bringing her home) and she has inspired me to get so involved with parrots. She has really changed my life. I've gotten highly involved in rescue work with parrots and have rescued a total of nine parrots and doves since bringing Petrie home, three short years ago. I owe it all to her... because she was the bird who sparked my interest, or rather, passion with parrots!
