Peanut, the Pet of the Day
Name: Peanut
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Unknown
Kind: Quaker Parrot
Home: Urbana, Illinois, USA
   Hi! I'm Peanut a Quaker Parrot and was hatched on November 2nd, 2005. My mom is always saying we live in the cornfields because we live in Urbana, IL. I don't think she likes it here much but I'm all about corn. Sure wish I could find those fields on my own, because I'd be the happiest Quaker in all the land. But Mom is very protective and doesn't let me out of her sight unless I'm in my happy hut sleeping or she has to leave the home for a while.

    Mom says I'm the most special bird in all the world. See Mom is disabled and doesn't get to leave the home much so she gets to spend all of her days with, yep you're looking at him/her, Me!! She laughs when I talk, which I do a lot for a young'un I think. Mom has taught me lots of words and some tricks and I will do them all day just to get a smile from my Mom. Oh well and the occasional almond is nice too :) Dad and my sister are pretty cool too but sometimes I have to show them who Mom's favorite really is.

    Since Mom isn't always feeling well all she has to do is tell me and I try to play quietly in my cage so she can rest.
