Nessy the cockatoo – story of a life time, part 1

Nessy the cockatoo – story of a life time, part 1

Nessy hatched miraculously in a filthy incubator in a filthy zoo with the worst conditions. Blessed by god with a strong will to live and experience life at its fully, Nessy survived and was raised with the most love, tenderness and care I could offer. May this angel rise and shine, spread its wings and show us what true love is.

…Nessy was taken away from me by excessive police force, wrongfully accusing me for “stealing”. He was rightfully given to me because there was no chance for him to survive. Miraculously ♥ I succeeded against all odds. He was like a son to me, I was never told to bring him back, now that I quit they suddenly remembered?! Sweet child of mine, miss you, so worried for you. Hopefully soon we will be reunited. :~(

Tricky — 13 week old Baby White Bellied Caique

Hi Everyone,
Thank You for visiting with my babies.
I am Rita from Rainbow Parrots.
Many of my babies go home to families who live in other states.
The purpose of my videos is to introduce my babies to their new families.
Each week as the babies grow and mature their new families get to know their personality.

I hope you all enjoy watching the babies as they grow each week.

African Grey Parrot Rescue Update | PARROT TALK

African Grey Parrot Rescue Update  | PARROT TALK

Hey guys,
So here is Cody’s first moments in my house… A lot of videos will follow this one But I will upload those later tonight. I was up all night with Cody, getting him comfortable and learning about him.

At this point in this video, no one knows that I brought an African Grey to the house, it’s just me alone, working with the bird. My sister is camping so she has no reception and George is working very late. I decided to not tell him and see what happens when he comes home and sees Cody. I will do my best to film it for you guys! I think he will at first think that it is his friends African Grey who is also named Picasso. From what I understand, the bird prefers men, so as much as Cody seems to like me now, (how he let me scratch his head when I first met him), he may change his mind when he meets George 🙂 It’s very possible he will latch on to the first man he feels comfortable with until we socialize him to be good around everyone else again.

It’s very possible that Cody knew I would get him out of there so he took his chance at any attention and behaved himself. If a bird isn’t getting any attention ever and he wants it, he can take it all in until he finds “his one” and then drop everyone else. Which is why he will need a lot of socialization regardless.

So I’m going to feed the other birds and put them to bed. I am going to do my best to separate them so they get some quarantine time, but Jersey has already heard Cody and is really trying to meet him, which is why I will focus on getting them to bed first. Then Cody will sleep upstairs in my room with me in the spare cage I have up there.

Keep tuning in to see his journey. I hope these videos are of some help, if not sun to follow along and see what a life we can give him.

“Bentley” The Goffin’s Cockatoo

“Bentley” The Goffin’s Cockatoo

Bentley is a 14 year old Goffin’s Cockatoo who recently came to live with us. Bentley’s previous owner passed away and he needed a new home so we invited him into ours. He is just getting used to his new surroundings and after two weeks of being quiet and timid….he has found his voice again! Large parrots can live a very long time, this little Goffin’s can live 40 – 60 years with good care so at 14 he’s just getting started. So before you go out and buy a parrot please realize they are a life long commitment and could out live you, they are in most cases loud, some what messy and require quite a bit of attention but if you win their trust and affection….they are amazing companions.
