Description

Hello there, I’m Pheobe, a dashing Meyers parrot. Despite my feminine name, I’ve been officially confirmed as male through DNA testing. At about 19 years old, I’ve had my fair share of adventures.

I recently found myself back in Birdline’s care after my foster dad relocated and realized my temperament wouldn’t quite suit the new living situation. But fear not, I’ve lived with both male and female caregivers and other feathered friends, so I’m quite adaptable.

I must admit, I can be a tad cage defensive, but don’t let that deter you. Once away from the cage, I’m all about snuggles and scratches. While I may not step up, I’ll happily perch on a shoulder or head for some quality bonding time. My current caretaker believes I might take a shine to older teenagers who respect my space around the cage.

In terms of vocal prowess, I can muster up a “hello,” “what ya doing,” and some other parrot noises, but I’m not one to make a racket. Give me a cardboard box or a wooden perch, and I’ll happily spend hours chewing away. I’ll confess, I can be a bit messy—I’ve been known to scatter food and droppings beyond the confines of my cage, but it’s all in good fun!

As for my diet, I’m a good eater who enjoys a balanced mix of fresh fruit and seeds. My caregiver tries to sneak in some pellet food, but I much prefer the fancier options like Lafeber nutri-berries and the occasional pistachio. And if you’re sharing some human snacks, count me in for a taste test!

While my current cage is in decent shape, it’s a bit snug for my liking, especially given my cage defense tendencies. But fret not, I’ll be bringing along all my bits and bobs to make myself at home wherever I land.

So, could you make room for a little feathered fellow like me? I’m certain there’s plenty we could teach each other as we grow in confidence together. Here’s hoping you’ll consider welcoming me into your family.

Yours chirpily,
Pheobe
