Toni was a re-homed bird we gt when I was a child. One of my mom's friends had gotten her for their kids, but the kids no longer were giving Toni much attention. Well attention came mainly when their oldest child hit the top f the cage to see her fly when he walked passed. When w were visiting one day I ended up spnding most of the time sitting with the bird instead of visiting.
When we went to leave they offered to let me take the bird, cage included home. It took sevral weeks before Ton settled down enough to be handled inside her cage, but she evntually decided that I was not like the other kids. Once she would step up on my finger in the cage and take a bt of millet from my hand sh learnd really quickly. Eventually she would ride around n my shoulder and fly on cue in a larg circle and come back to me.
She was just a little green, yellow headed, parokeet. But she was a great pet. I would recomend a parket to just about any one. They don't make great talkers, but are usually easy to tame/train and have a sense of humor.
