Hey there, folks! I’m Garry, the handsome blue devil, and I’m here to share my story with you. It’s a tale of fate, friendship, and the wonderful journey I’ve been on with my green lady friend, Mojo. You see, we didn’t start our journey together, but destiny had other plans for us, and now we’re inseparable.
I’ll start with the basics. I’m Garry, the charming blue Indian Ringneck, and I have a reputation for being quite the chatty fellow – I enjoy blowing kisses, saying hello, calling out my name, and whistling tunes. Although my passion in life is flying about, I do have calm moments where I will come and sit with you humans from time to time, especially if there is food around.
I must confess to some quirks. You see, I had some behavioural issues that led to my arrival at Birdline. There were moments of aggression towards my previous owner, which, I admit, were quite unpredictable. Sometimes, I’d squawk, take an unexpected flight, or even give a little nip. It’s never too hard of a bite, more like a shock. That’s why I must be handled with caution. I’m not the best fit for households with children due to my unpredictability. I don’t have a strong preference between men and women; I just love being near Mojo.
Now, let me introduce you to Mojo, the green beauty in my life. Mojo’s story is quite remarkable. She was found on a road with a broken wing and heavily clipped feathers. Whilst recovering Mojo formed a bond with me. Unfortunately, her wing didn’t heal quite right, so while she can still spread her wings a bit, she’s not as confident as me in the air. Instead, she prefers to stay close to our comfy cage, guarding our toys and food. Whilst Mojo is not as tame as I am, she’s not aggressive at all. Now, here’s the thing about Mojo: she can get a tad noisy when I decide to take a flight around. But don’t be quick to judge. It’s only because she’s worried about losing sight of me. The moment she spots me again, she returns to her quiet and timid self, which is what I love about her.
Mojo and I enjoy having the radio on during the day and gazing out of a window. As for our baths, I’m all in for a regular misting, but Mojo is still warming up to the idea. With a bit more time, I’m sure she’ll learn to enjoy them just as much as I do. We like to have our cage open so we can come and go as we please. After a good exploration session, we often tuck ourselves back into our cage, which is filled with toys and perches, including mirrors, bells, and items to chew on. When it’s time for bed, Mojo and I like to be covered up, typically from 8 pm to 8:30 am.
When it comes to our diet, we thrive on Avian Specific 45 and/or 35, along with hemp seeds, pistachios, and cashews. Our menu also includes fresh fruits and vegetables, such as apples, grapes, broccoli, sweetcorn, bananas, sugar snap peas, and carrots. We receive supplements like Calcivet and AviPro as needed to stay healthy. But if there’s one treat that gets us both excited, it’s a tasty walnut
We’re looking for a calm and patient home with enough space for our cage and daily flying adventures. Whether you’re a single person or a couple, we won’t demand much interaction – just the joy of spending time together. You could say we’re like two peas in a pod, keeping each other company and content. We’re incredibly entertaining to watch as we play and explore. If you have the patience and love to offer, we’re here, waiting to brighten your life with our charming presence. Come be a part of our colourful world!
