Spice, the Pet of the Day
Name: Spice
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Alexandrine parrot
Home: South Africa
   Spice is the most adorable bird. He doesn't really do tricks, but when I weaned him off the porridge food and onto crumbles, he only liked being fed with a spoon. So now he holds the spoon himself, while he eats his crumbles.

    Spice is a very fussy little bird, he only eats the most expensive fruit, like mangoes and pawpaws. He doesn't eat the boring stuff like apples and oranges. He's only really affectionate to me (his mom). Spice tolerates my sister but doesn't like it when my mother touches him. He will gladly sit on her shoulder but as soon as the hand comes up so does his feathers. He is a real Momma's bird and he's just too cute!
