||24 years old|
||White Eyed Conure|
||Brooklyn, New York, USA|
is our 24-year-old White Eyed Conure. Sadly 19 years ago he went
through a phase when he started plucking his feathers and bit through his own
chest. He was stitched up and never flew again, as you can see. We don't know
why he did that, but we have to careful to keep him warm, as he doesn't have
the feathers he would normally have.
Despite his looks, Toffutti is a happy bird. He likes to play with his bells
inside his cage and likes to sit on top of the cage and throw his balls or
toys off the top of the cage. He is very affectionate towards my wife and very
protective of her. If we are both by the cage, he will attack me to protect
her. He has a limited vocabulary, he only says "Hello" and "Hello Toe." He
loves to eat sunflower seeds and chews on toothpicks. He greets you a big
HELLO when you come home. We love him!
