Dakotah, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dakotah
Age: Six months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Green Cheek Conure
Home: Reston, Virginia, USA
   Hello, and this is Dakotah (Chingy). He is a Green Cheek conure with an extra special personality. He has a splayed leg from a nest injury from his beginner parents. He has no problem crawling around, and gets all the attention he could imagine. He resides with Pakito and the others here in Reston. He is a sweet little boy (DNA'ed Male) and has tons of love to give. He is just weaned and is already trying to say "what" and at night makes kissy sounds. He is probably going to be quite the talker! He is soo sweet, we can even wrap him in a towel, with his head sticking out, and he will fall asleep like that. He listens to our other birds and tries to mimic them also. He is soo cute and we cherish him! He has tons of toys to play with, and is spoiled in the best way! He and the others love it here and get along rather well. He is such a character already, and we know he will progress with his vocal capabilities. He is such a sweety, and we are glad to have him here, you'd never know he had a splayed leg with the way he acts!He eats berry flavored seed bars all day,and gets various healthy snacks with the other "fids." He loves to ride on your shoulder and sleep in your hair. He loves to climb to the top of your head and mimic the word "what." He truly is a special boy, and we love him with all our heart!
