Here’s our Easter Baby!

May 26, 2009 at 8:52 pm

This is little Peter Rabbit, hatched on Easter Sunday. He is almost ready to come out and see the world, and we already have lots of interest in him! Hand-fed baby birds are a hot commodity, as they are extemely tame, gentle, and friendly towards people. After all, they have been “adopted” by humans from a very young age! Petey is no different and he is going to make a wonderful pet bird for some lucky someone!

Here are some snapshots I took tonight…

Peter is a pied Cockatiel, so he is grey with irregular yellow blotches. We are not entirely sure that Pete is a male Cockatiel, but both male and female Cockatiels make wonderful pets, so it doesn’t matter much at all!

We can’t wait until Peter is ready to show off, so keep checking back here and at the store!

If you are very interested in Peter Rabbit, or any other hand-fed baby Cockatiel, give us a call at (816) 561-7387. Pete will be ready to go soon, and I’m sure he’ll go fast, but we have Peter’s parents who are quite willing and industrious, so it will never be a long time before we have more sweet, tame babies. (And don’t forget we have the two baby Quaker Parrots seen in the background of the second shot of Peter. Just as sweet, and with better mimicking ability!)

Hope we hear from you soon!
