They look so cuddly but when we first got Fluff he latched onto my finger. I fairly yelled and cursed as these guys can break bones. We feed them on day old chicks and mice.(dead of course) and bits of snake. In the wild they eat baby birds, lizards, frogs, snakes, pretty much anything small that moves (that includes little fingers)LOL
They aren't the friendliest of birds most of the time but as with anything you always get some that are a bit different. These two are ok if we have food, especially Fluff, in fact we often call him Fat Fluff as he eats SO much and steals Fifi's food. LOL
These are two kookaburras my fella and I have been caring for. They can't be released back into the wild as they both have wings that were too badly damaged to fly properly. The one on the left is Fluff and the other is Fifi.
The Parrot Rescue Centre is a wonderful place which takes in unwanted and neglected parrots and cockatoos as well as trying to educate as many people as possible about the care and welfare of sharing our lives with these wonderful birds.
He's gorgeous. My rellies had a tortoise much smaller than him and had their address painted on his shell so people could take him back home cos he kept getting out and wandering around the neighbourhood. LOL
