About Alpha and Beta

  • Status: Available for Adoption (adoption info)
  • Species: Bird
  • General Color: Green
  • Current Age: 3 Years 5 Months (best estimate)

Hatch Date: Alpha (female) - 2019 and Beta (male) - 2019

Alpha and Beta are a bonded pair and will be adopted out together. They had a clutch of two babies together - Sunny and Skye - who are also listed for adoption and will be adopted out separately. 

When they are in the same room with their foster mom, she leaves their cage door open for them to come out.  

They are not comfortable being outside of their cage yet, but if they do come out and get too far away from the cage, they are willing to get on foster mom’s finger to be put up by the cage.  Other than that, they are not finger-tamed.

Their wings are clipped to keep them safe when flying outside of their cage. They haven’t shown any cage aggression when their foster mom puts her hand inside their cage.

Mornings start around 6:30AM.   They like to hop around their cage and play with some of their toys.  They enjoy listening to music and chitter with each other all day long.

Once the lights go out in their room (around 8:30-9:00 PM), they are usually quiet till morning. 

The top of the cage is covered to offer them a “safe” area in their cage since the cage faces the outside.  

They do seem to enjoy looking out and seeing the activity of the outside birds. 

Foster mom is working on giving them a more varied diet than just seeds.  

They enjoy spinach leaves and whole grain bread cut up in quarters and clipped to the cage.  

They periodically get a millet sprig as a treat.  

This encourages them to come out and look to see if there’s a special treat waiting.   

Foster mom has not yet seen them eat the carrot, orange, broccoli, apple, or grapes which were offered. But she keeps trying.   

They will occasionally take a bath in their water bowl.

They are sweet companion birds, but if you want them to be hand tame and hang out on you, you will need to have patience and be willing work with them. 

If you enjoy the happy sounds of birds and enjoy their being around, they will make a wonderful addition to a calm household.  

The couple are being fostered in Howell, NJ and will only be adopted to someone that is willing to drive to do the required visits. We will NOT ship our birds. 

For the Love of Birds is a network of dedicated foster home throughout NJ and Eastern PA, we have no central location. 

As our adoptable birds are living in volunteer homes, or in their family's home, we only allow approved applicants to meet our birds. 

If interested in meeting Alpha and Beta, please review our adoption policies and complete an adoption application on our website ftlob.rescuegroups.org.
