I received an email from someone whose blind mother had two parakeets that needed a home, due to the fact that Mom wasn't feeling well and the birds were left alone in the apartment. I took a drive and picked up these two gorgeous birds. Juan is hand trained a little bit more than Gina, and loves being held. Even though he's clipped, he will try to fly but feels secure engulfed in the warmth of my hands. Gina sort of hides in the rear of the cage. They both love millet, but I'm having a hard time introducing new foods. These birds will need a cage when they are adopted.
