A few years ago my Sister rescued a week old Parrot and brought it home that has been a wonderful Pet since. He gets an undivided attention. Recently she rescued a chick probably a pullet and brought her home. It was hungry and thirsty. Now, whenever the new pet is given attention, our parrot leaves everything he is doing and starts watching it. And yes, everything includes eating his favorite food. We are not bird psychology experts but our parrot's less chattering is making us a little concerned. We want to see them grow together.
