Skooter's Story - Senagal Parrot
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.
