Daffodil, Valerie's Other Cockatiel
Hi, my name is Daffodil! I am a very pretty Lutino cockatiel .Yes, I
do have a little bald spot on the back of my head,(Lutino Baldness).........but, we don't
talk about that! I will be having my 2nd birthday next Spring, when my
buddy, Pretty Bird celebrates his 3rd birthday! My Mama and Dad got me in June of
2001! I was their only child, until they brought home Pretty Bird in February
of 2002! Well, I wasn't really happy about it, but I have since learned
that Mama and Dad pay just as much attention to me as they did in the past.It's also
kind of fun having a little scruff-ball, like Pretty Bird follow me around
wherever I go!
I was on a seed diet, but was recently converted to pellets!
I love to "Dine Out" of my cage with Pretty Bird. We get to eat breakfast
(or lunch or dinner) with our parents quite often. My favorite
other foods are green onions, parsley, bell peppers, carrots, bananas, white
rice, pasta, and others. I have a reputation for flying into the kitchen
whenever anybody has food, because I usually have to sample it!
I am pretty quiet for the most part, but I always greet my Mama or Dad with a friendly
chirp when they get home. Sometimes I will do a very loud chirp or squawk to
get their attention. I love to travel around on my parents shoulders or
head, hang upside down from my perches and annoy Pretty Bird! I also love
it when my Dad wears Hawaiian shirts!
I like to be groomed around my head and ears. When I eat my "pellet soup" I usually get pellets stuck all
over my beak, and I love to have my Mama clean it off!I also love to take
showers with my Mama - or sit on the shower ledge and preen! At night, I sit on
the far end of my perch, right next to where Pretty Bird sleeps (in his
cage). I sleep pretty lightly and whenever I hear my Mama or Dad get up in
the middle of the night, I always give a small chirp to say good night! I
wake up in the morning to hear Pretty Bird chirping his head off, and then
Mama comes to let us out of our cages!Our parents are self-employed, so
sometimes Mama will take a day off and spend it with us! I love all of
the fun time that we spend with our parents!
