VIDEO: Lovebird With No Legs Lives Life To The Fullest

Sometimes you meet a family and a bird that you can't help but be inspired by.

Peaches, a peach-faced lovebird, doesn't have any legs, which means she needs certain accommodations from her family, and they readily step up to provide. My favorite part of this video (besides Peaches herself), is the bird cage setup, which enables this active little lovebird to move around easily from her the door to the water bowl. Peaches' is also fully-flighted, and can take off to visit her family whenever she likes.

Loved it!!! What a sweet little bird and what loving parents this little one has! I was wondering how this birdie came to be without legs...?

Amazing and wonderful story. I have an African Grey and she had a calcium deficiency at birth. She uses her legs only to cling on the wires with her toenails but makes it around the cage very good. She is my best talker and I love her.

Wow, I love such heart felt moment between human and animal. It makes me feel like the good in the world is really powerful. I love this story, I just wish that everyone had the same patience and love with animals as these people do.
