Spike, the Pet of the Day
Name: Spike
Age: 23 years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Blue Fronted Amazon Parrot
Home: Pennsylvania, USA
   Spike is a Blue-fronted Amazon parrot who lives with my family and I in Pennsylvania. Spike is a very outgoing bird who likes to scream at the top of his lungs with any chance he gets, especially when he hears another bird or watches my dog walk in and out of the room. He has many different phrases that he constantly says. He is very much loved by my entire family.

    Although he has a cage, he doesn't spend much time in it. He loves to fly around the house and create as much mischief as he possibly can. He also has a big appetite. He loves to eat many different types of food, especially pasta and pizza. Every morning, he is up and ready to eat honey nut cheerios and toast. He is supplied on a daily basis with fresh water, which has liquid vitamins mixed into it, sugar snap peas, peanuts, vitamin rich bird food, grapes, and Yo-Dips, which are dried yogurt covered nuts. He really likes "scritches" which is when you scratch and pet the top of his head. Sometimes he goes to the bottom of the cage and clucks as he pecks the crumbs from the peanuts. When he does this, we call him "Spikey-bird".
