Meet Duke

Duke, my new princess parrot.
From what we gather, hes a red suffusion.
he doesnt look like any POW I've seen, except for
if you google image a princess parrot with red suffusion.
He is a male, he has a very long tail, talks,
whistles, and has bright orange eyes.

Duke has a bit of cage possession issues
(well really I dont blame him, kids used to poke at him,
and stick their fingers in his cage..)
So we are working on him with clicker training, and feeding
him treats through the cage with our hands, so that he learns
we arent trying to invade his space.

Hes really lovely! A very good deal at 200 with his cage!

His previous owner died, and the son (I think) brought him into the King Ed Pet store to try and sell him on consignment. He was there for 6 months, and getting depressed.

He never made a peep at the pet store!
