About Us
Citrine, the Pet of the Day
Name: Citrine
Age: Eight and a half weeks old
Gender: Female
Kind: Lovebird
Home: Wisconsin, USA
   Citrine may look all grown up, but she really is still a baby! She is learning new things every day, like how to balance and scratch herself. All this is great progress for her, after all, two weeks ago she couldn't walk at all due to poor nest materiel by the breeder. She joins my little flock of six Lovebirds, and likes hanging out with the others, like Peridot in the picture with her. She is seeing what being a happy healthy bird is all about!

    She is just a baby being handfed so she doesn't know any games or tricks yet, she doesn't have favorite treats yet as most of what she eats is formula. She is starting to play with foot toys and picking at millet. She is learning to fly which we didn't know if she ever would because of her leg condition. She is landing as well as can be expected. It's funny when she tries to take off to fly, she flaps her wings real hard and fast and starts running to take off. She is mostly independent right now, but does have her affectionate moments.
