Tobi & Cookie (a Lovebird story)
I got Tobi & Cookie at a bird breeder for about $30 each. Well more like I rescued them. The owner would keep these birds in tiny cages and he would smoke near them! And he kept the door open so it was drafty and carbon dioxide would come in because the store was right next to a busy street. I nursed them back to health and now keep them in a big cage with tons of toys. I think I spoil them to much but they don't. They absolutly love the home. I believe that they are old enough for breeding.
One day my neighbor got them a toy. It looked like half of a coconut with a bunch of beads, well the next day it was on the cage floor because the birds had bitten through the 2 cm. thick heavy duty string. Those birds are jus crazy...but cute! I love them with all my heart and taught them several tricks like to bob their heads when I ask the a yes or no question even though they are not really tame. And when I let them out and put a perch near them they jump on. I have had them for about five months now.
P.S.-I posted some picture but sorry if they do not appear I don't know why but they seem to not appear?
