Blood Parrots

Post by PaulVerrall »

I know they divide opinion, how many people keep them?
One of mine is 13 years old. (I rescued him and was told he was 10, but from where he came from that could be a lie)
As he's got older it's getting harder for him to eat, due to their deformed mouth, but we've got a system down now where he swims up to me and waits for me to push a stick right in so he can chew with the teeth that are set right back in his mouth, then repeat!
They are so clever and friendly!

I seen some of these in the flesh at Trimar for the first time last weekend. They look cool, but they're not for me. Yours kind of looks like my Nan, just needs a fag in its mouth 🤣
