Poppy

Poppy is a nearly 1.5 year old green cheek conure. She has been DNA sexed as female and has no medical issues to report. Her favorite foods are green grapes, peppers, and her Caitec pellets. She loves to play wrestle on her back, fly-chase you running around the house, and dance and screech to her favorite song, Barbara Ann by the Beach Boys. Her favorite way to bathe is in cupped hands or a shallow plate you\'re holding under a gentle stream of sink water, and she\'s very particular about the temperature (it must be cold or she will not get in). She loves to look out windows and go on outdoor adventures in her travel cage. She is adventurous and curious, very good at trying new things if introduced properly. She is trainable and motivated by praise or her favorite treats, and already knows a few tricks. She is hand tame, loves scritches, and will allow most touching, but she is less of a cuddler and more of a professional wrestler these days. She does occasionally show her cuddly side though, and will preen your hair and snuggle up to your neck to nap.
