These are my parrots. On the left you have Lilly an umbrella cockatoo. Lilly was hatched in 1987. Her original owners were murdered in Florida in 1988. My husband & I moved back home to Ohio in May of 1989. About a year later I found out that Lilly’s surrogate Mom was looking for a home for her One choice her surrogate Mom had was a breeder, her other choice was me. Miss B, surrogate Mom chose me over having Lilly , because she knew I would treat Lilly like a well loved house pet. This is the first bird I have ever had in my life! Never had a parakeet, Lovebird, cockateil. I had no experiance & minimal knowledge about what to do. Basic feeding, watering, housing were easy. One of the harder things was how to play with Lilly. One of out first games is what I called the “blanket game” I had a afgan on the back of the couch. Lilly would get up on the back of the .couch, I would pick her up, then I would lay her on the couch & kiss her . h last time I did that I picked Lilly up with my lower lip….OUCH!! Had I had an extra earring in my house I coulda saved on a piercing. The bird on the right is John Parrot.
