Meet Lu-Man

Hello! My name is Lu. My foster Mom calls me the Lu-Man – or sometimes “The Mean Green Terrorizer!” I am a 6 year old quaker parrot and my foster Mommy says I am very special. I had an accident with my beak that has left me with only a partial beak on one side, but I am able to get around just fine and I am eating regular pellets, chop, fresh vegetables and fruits, and healthy nuts – almonds are my favorite nuts! However, I also go crazy over Caitec Birdie Munchie Cookies and I have to have chop every day, or I will vocalize until I get it!

I have graduated to a regular cage now but I still have to go to the vet every month for a beak trim – this needs to be done by an avian vet to make sure it is done in a very specific way so that I am can still get around and eat properly. My beak is still deformed but I am able to use it much more fully now. So, don’t worry – my small handicap does not take away from my bite! I can be very territorial of my cage and I only like certain people. In fact, when I pick the person I trust, watch out - you better not come near, because I will defend that person from you! My chosen person enjoys shoulder time with me and a nice preen of their face and hair.

I don’t like hands though – even the hands of my chosen person, so I only step up in a certain way – don’t worry, my foster mom can show you, it is easy. With more time, I may learn to trust your hands as long as you are very patient and loving with me. I really hope that you will come and visit with me soon. In the meantime, maybe you can send me some of my favorite things thorough my wish list at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2US4THPOPJI7T/ref=cm_wl_list_o_146? All gifts are greatly appreciated!
