Comments: Oba is a darling little,relatively speaking,bird. He enjoys the company of humans and tolerates the other bird in my care. He grew up in the same home with six other parrots of differing species.
He can get obstinate when coming ouit of hiscage. I acknowledge the fact that he is like this because I had too many birds and I wasn’t able to give him or the other birds the out time that he deserved and needed. That is why I have reduced the size of my folk from seven birds to only two birds.
Cape parrots,in my opinion,are wonderful birds to have as pets. I also recognize the fact that most parrot species in the world are threatenedwith extinction. That is why I got my Cape from a very reputable breeder in Wisconsin.If there is any way to extract my birds Sperm for breeding purposes, I will consider that as an option. I can’t see letting go of the Lil’ Fella otherwise.Oba is my joy,next to my partner,he is the focus of my life!
