From a breeding situation in southern Virginia. A sweet little guy, leery of humans of course. Groucho is a playful little guy who mimics police sirens perfectly!!
Freddy was once a pet. He was relinquished to a breeder where he was forced to breed for many years before he found his way here to Project Perry. Freddy is a happy go lucky little guy who loves to interact with people. He loves to do the "Freddy Dance".
Topaz is a wild caught ex breeder Timneh Grey. He is very fearful of humans. His mate was Garnet. After being retired by a breeder, he was in Wyoming until Project Perry was contacted to take him and his mate in, as they were not "cage birds" and extremely fearful. Darling Garnet has passed away as of May 2015. She is very missed.
Scrappy came from a dark and dusty basement in northwestern Virginia. She was captured in the wild, transported out of Africa to the United States, and became a breeder bird for the pet trade for many years before being "retired" from her job as a slave to human greed. She's an old gal, but she is a strong willed and beautiful lady.
Valentine and Gideon are a tight pair that stay close to one another. Valentine loves walnuts and she likes to snatch them up and go into the corner to hide and eat them. Gideon never fights her for anything... He's a sweet boy. Valentine is very adventurous and loves to explore and tear apart toys... now that she has some and knows what they are for....
Simon is terrified of everything. Mostly because his sight is horrible. In new places... it is hard for him to figure out where everything is. It's hard for him to adjust, but he is now in the aviary, and he is doing AMAZING!!
Robert came from a breeder in Chicago. His mate, Rosie, passed away in February of 2014. They are both wild caught parrots. He has big beautiful eyes and used to be very fearful of humans. Now, we find he loves to hang out and interact with us!
