Skooter's Story - Senagal Parrot

Skooter a few months old

Skooter a few months old

I first saw Skooter as a pin-feathered baby... adorable. He would make this tiny, little noise and look up at me. I fell in love instantly and so I visited him everyday for about two months until he finally could eat on his own and I could take him home (he took his time learning how to wean).

He is nine months old now and is very affectionate; he loves giving kisses and getting scratched on the head. He is a handful at times (throwing things on the floor constantly).. but well-worth it.

Oh, I ended up naming him "Skooter" because as a baby he would scoot/walk backwards more than he would walk forwards. Quite cute.

Your bird is absolutely beautiful. After months of research and planning Im about to give a home to my first parrot - a Senegal. Already built a bit of a relationship with my little fella at the breeders over the past few weeks. So excited to welcome a new best friend for life into my home. Senegals are just the most beautiful birds to me in terms of character and personality. Im so proud to be about to own and care for one.

So... I'm the author of this story; I stumbled upon Skooter's story recently online and found that when I published this story I spelled "Senegal" incorrectly. Just wanted to let y'all know that after two years I now know how to spell "Senegal" right.. hehe ;-)

Skooter is doing great; he is turning three next month. He has developed quite the personality and loves to roll on his back and play with his feet.

Parrothood is great.

He's absolutely beautifull. I have a senegal of my own and I remember when he was a baby he had those same dark baby eyes, now they're changed to yellow but they look so cute when they're young. congratulations on such a beautiful senegal.
