||Eighteen months old|
and Fred were born in Netherlands, but they have lived in Lisbon, Portugal,
for one year now. One of the things that fascinated me when I first saw
them was the fact that they were always very close to each other, never
wanted to be separated. So, I've brought them home and let them fly and
play for their happiness.
Ginger is more aggressive. She doesn't appreciate hands and fingers
around her very much. But Fred is very sweet. He comes to our finger,
let us hold him and scratch him. He stays very still and he is very
smooth. One of the recently acquired abilities is the fact that Ginger can
open the cage gate with her beak, put a foot on one side holding the
gate, let him out and then, cautiously, move her head under the gate and
get out. And they also can get back in too, although they prefer to mess
around in the kitchen!
