Juno came into Phoenix Landing in October of this year. He was technically a “lost bird.” A lovely couple rescued him and searched for his owner to no avail. This couple was retired and traveled a lot. They were not prepared to make a long term commitment to their new companion so they called Phoenix Landing for help.
The vet believes Juno to be at least two years old but probably not much older. Juno has been a delight for his foster home. He adapted very quickly to the other birds in the home. He is an active guy and plays readily with all new toys that are given to him. He is also extremely fond of showers and likes to get completely soaked.
The best thing about him is his zest for food – and for the right types of foods. His foster home has learned that Ekkie’s have very specific diet needs. This includes NO formulated foods, not even the highest grade of organic pellets. He currently eats veggies, fruits, nuts and selected seed mixes, eggs, limited grains (mostly quinoa), and grain free birdie breads. His foster family has gone to some effort to learn about the needs of his species. He has made it easy by liking all of the foods he should eat!
Do you have room in your home for this active boy? Can you continue giving him the nutrition that he needs to stay healthy? He is one gorgeous sweet boy looking for his next long term landing.
