sir Popcorn Pepper


This sweet bundle of feathers you're looking at right now is known as Sir Popcorn Pepper, Popcorn for short. He is the most adorable cockatiel I have ever owned. (Probably because he's the first I've owned!) I got him on my birthday, using my birthday money. He is a hand-reared tame cockatiel, who loves his new owners. (I think) He is not yet a year old (he has just been weened from baby food!) but Cockatiels are expected to live for 10 to 20 years. I hope he learns to talk in that time!

We all love the new addition to the family! He loves: sunflower seeds (that have been sprouted,) tickling necks and sitting on fingers. He hates: being stroked, being hugged, being alone and his special pellets he has to eat.

  8. That is a very cute bird! My sister and brother both have Parakeets (or Budgies). They're cute, but I like your birds little head feathers!
    And, I love the name. Very regal, but very cute as well. :)

  12. Aww this bird is such a cutie. That would be so cool if he could talk. My grandmas bird couldn't talk but would copy the whistles you did him.
