Coquito Parrot Lovebird Asheville, NC

Special needs. Coquito needs flat surfaces and perches low in the cage as his balance and grip are not great. So, a tabletop cage that has a lot of horizontal space is preferable for him.

Meet Coquito

Coquito is a 15+ year old lovebird, looking for his retirement home. He isn't fond of hands, and is a pretty easy keeper. He just wants shreddable toys to destroy, and good foods. He loves healthy pumpkin bread made for parrots (without sugar), and millet as a special treat. His favorite toys to destroy include Wesco kabob toys. He has a special cage set up, with low perches, so he can get around easily. He's had a physical exam and bloodwork done, and everything came back fine. He tested negative for beak and feather disease. He's just an older bird who wants projects to keep him busy, good food, and to take a few naps through the day. He cannot fly, but does some flapping exercises on his own each day to stay fit. Coquito is currently in a foster home near Asheville, NC.
