Prince, the Pet of the Day
Name: Prince
Age: 11 1/2 years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Cockatiel
Home: Schaumburg, Illinois, USA
   Prince is such a wonderful bird. He talks to you and says "Pretty boy Prince" and chirps like crazy when he hears music. My daughter bought him for me at Christmas time about eleven years ago and he has made friends so far with three dogs and three cats. He flies himself around the house and lands where ever he pleases. He enjoys eating millet and rye bread.

    When his wings are clipped (so he cannot fly away if startled), he loves to sit outside and listen to all the other birds chirping and puts his two cents in. He also loves it if you are wearing gold. He will just keep on tugging and tugging on earrings or necklaces. Once in a while he will do a special "jungle call" where he has a very throaty chirp and it lasts for about five minutes! He is a lot of fun.
