Boo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Boo
Age: 17+ weeks old
Gender: Male
Kind: White-eyed Conure
Home: Ft Lauderdale, Florida, USA
   This is Boo, our white-eyed conure. Boo is a very special little guy. One weekend my husband and I first saw Boo at Bill's Bird Boutique in Davie, Florida. He was caged with several Quakers he'd been hatched with, and considered his flock. Unlike the Quakers, Boo sat on his perch, silent and unruffled even when active Quakers flew into him and shoved him aside. I knew from the moment our eyes met that this was the one bird, the only bird for me.

    Boo seldom squawks but does say single words at times and speaks baby talk. He's hand-shy but ventures to preen my hair and will take food from my hand. It takes time to build trust. He is very special and we look forward to happy years ahead with him.
