A Little Living Painting

These birds are very easy to take care of because they are small and very even tempered.
Daphne was quiet and playful but she had health issues. These birds are naturally curious and sometimes put their beaks where they dont belong. Because of their small size you must also make sure that their dwelling isn't in a drafty room or too close to a window. Daphne was beautiful bird, it was like owning a living painting. But she was needy which was difficult because she was flighty and small so holding her was frequently difficult.
These birds are best for those who live in small spaces and are accustomed to tinier birds. I grew up with big parrots, so I came to thoroughly enjoy handling them and I could not do this with Daphne.
