My name is Molly, but the person that is taking care of me has started calling me “Miss Molly”, she says that it fits my personality better.
I am a strong, independent, opinionated little bird. I will not hesitate to let you know what I like and don’t like.
Some things that I like are food, hanging out on top of my cage, flying around the room that I live in, food, sitting on the ceiling fan (safely turned off, thank you), food, shredding toys, complaining that room service is slow, and food. Do you see a trend? Food is important in my life, but I am not too fussy about what kind of food. I eat pellets, fruits and veggies, chop, nutriberries, bread and cereal. I really like seeds and nuts, my person puts those inside my cage when she needs me to go back in, and I run right in for them, I just can’t resist.
The main things I don’t like are being handled or petted. Like I said, I am independent bird. People exist to let me out of my cage, and to bring me food. I will take food from people, but then I just want to be left to eat it by myself.
I used to live in a cage with a male Ringneck Parakeet, but I didn’t really like him and I pushed him around a lot. I enjoy living in a room with other birds at my current house, but I don’t really interact with them much, I mostly just stare at their food bowls, especially the finches - they have a whole bowl of tasty seed that I can’t reach! I am smart enough to fly off of the other birds cages if they come too close, I don’t want to get my toes nipped. I might be able to live with another bird, but I would need a lot of time and supervised interactions to make sure that I liked them.
If you want a bird to sit with you and cuddle, I am NOT your girl. But if you are looking for a bird that enjoys being a bird, I might be the right one for you. I will need a big cage and lots of toys so
that I can amuse myself when you are not home. I will need supervised “out of cage” time when you are home so that I can fly around and explore, and a commitment from you to keep my area safe - no open windows or doors, no running ceiling fans, that kind of stuff. And food, lots of good healthy food. In return, you will get the pleasure of watching a little bird enjoy herself being a bird. In time, I might come to let you touch me or pick me up, but I make no promises.
