Kiwi is a Yellow Naped Amazon. Kiwi is believed to be female, but has not been DNA sexed. Her current guardians were told that she is approximately 30 years old. Kiwi was originally rescued from a hoarder house with several other birds. Her original rescuer got another job and could not spend as much time with her, so her current family took her in. That was about 1 year ago. They were told Kiwi did not like men and unfortunately, she has never warned up to males in the house. Kiwi does not like males, hats, flannel patterns, the color red, and fuzzy slippers. Kiwi is more comfortable and happier with women and is very clear with how she acts when either walk in the room. Kiwi does not act aggressively towards children when they approach her cage, but her family hasn't had her out of the cage around them.
She is not clipped but has not flown since living with her current family. She will climb down from her cage to the floor and walk around. She will also walk throughout the house into different rooms, as long as the male in the house is not there when she turns the corner. She likes to sit on her perch on the side of her cage and will let you know she wants to come out of her cage by saying 'out'. She is in the room with a French Lop bunny which she is not aggressive towards.

Kiwi is on a diet of pellets and seeds and loves pistachios or peanuts as a treat. Her favorite toys are anything made of wood blocks. She doesn't touch the other types of toys in her cage. Kiwi is trained to step up in a wood dowel.

Kiwi says a couple of words and phrases, and will ask 'What are you doing?, I don't know'. When she gets excited, she will make some excited noises and fluff up. She came from a house with dogs and will occasionally make a subdued barking sound and sometimes sound like a laser. Most of the time she is quiet though. Kiwi will cuddle with her mom on the couch and loves to be scratched on the head.

Kiwi has been disease tested for psittacosis and PBFD. Kiwi is participating in our Help With Rehoming program and is living in Parlin, NJ and will only be adopted to a forever home within driving distance. We will not ship our birds.
For the Love of Birds is a group of dedicated foster homes throughout NJ and Eastern PA. We do not have a central location.
