About Us
Elpee, the Pet of the Day
Name: Elpee
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Princess Parrot
Home: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
   This is Elpee. She is a two-year-old Princess parrot, a species native of the deserts of Western Australia. In the USA she is known as a Princess of Wales parrot. Elpee was captive bred, which is important because in the wild her breed is almost extinct. Their beautiful plumage sadly attracted too much attention, so we are glad enough were captured and being bred to keep them from going extinct entirely. She is not just beautiful, she is a funny, chatty and loving bird.

    She lives in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. She loves to sit on top of her cage and yell at all the wild birds like lorikeets and cockatoos that fly past. She loves to head bob and to bark with her mum, which looks so silly! She also loves her seven year old sister Rafferty, who is a platinum cockatiel. She is a treasure to us, and a special bird in every way.
