Won't you think about adopting me?
Print an adoption flyer for Mellow & Luna!
Hatch Date: Mellow - Approx 2017 and Luna was found outside.
Luna (Blue) and Mellow (Yellow) are a bonded pair and will be adopted out together.
Mellow is, as the name implies, quite chill and mellow. Luna, is a little chatty lunatic of the two. Always talking, singing and chattering up a storm. Mellow just kind of sits there having her ears talked off. With the occasional chirp in.
They get along with each other, play, bicker, and groom each other as well. They are a little bit food protective, so they need their own bowls (there are 3 food bowls in their cage).
They are curious and like to come near people but on their own terms. Luna especially doesn’t seem to like handling too much, though was semi-hand-tame in the past. Mellow is cautious around people.
Both love seed a bit too much and their foster mom has been working on pellet conversion with mixed success. Birdy bread seems to be a good way to make it work. Broccoli and baby carrots are preferred non-standard bird food treats. Millet is always very appreciated.
Their foster mom has been working with them individually with - Step up Luna, or Step up Mellow. Addressing each by name to try to get them more comfortable knowing who she is working with. She has also been working on “go home” as a specific phrase for when it’s time to go back in their cage, though they tend to go back without issue. More just to get them used to it.
They love flying around together and sometimes fly in circles around the living room in unison, it’s quite cute. They do prefer to kind of observe from the top of their cage. Again Luna is the crazy, fun one who chatters the whole time when in or out of the cage.
Luna and Mellow have been disease tested and is negative for Chlamydia and PBFD.
They are being fostered in Lake Hiawatha, 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 Luna and Mellow, please review our adoption policies and complete an adoption application on our website ftlob.rescuegroups.org.
