BUTTERCUP, THE CLOWN BIRD

Posted Oct 19, 2013

I have had a pair of white Cockatiels for two years and they are really the MOST DELIGHTFUL birds I have ver had. You just can't be serious in their company. Specially the female, Buttercup is a total CLOWN. She's my favorite. She is always alert and can almost perfectly MIMIC the sound of the doorbell and of the little puppies that my Poodle recently had.The first time, I totally got shocked that where are the puppies calling from? She is so quick and intelligent. I havent hand trained her but she wanders around the house on her own. She loves her little swing and she actually loves when you push the swing for her. Thats the only time she doesn't shy away from my hand. The thing I love most is that she has EXPRESSIONS for every change in the environment. She raises her crown, shrinks and dilates her pupils and chatters in a curios way. She loves Green chillies and its absolutely adorable to watch her hold it in her claws and nibble it. "LIVELY" is the one word I can use to describe her. I have a pair of Grey Pied Cockatiels too, but they aren't as ADORABLE as Buttercup
