Nan is both a self-mutilator and plucker (all too common in these wonderful birds). We are her third owners.

Her previous owner had to leave her at our favorite petstore after a major life change. We fell in love with our plucked-duck. She was still recovering from a self-inflicted chest wound.

After a while the owner decided it was best Nan come home with us, where she could get the love and attention she needed.

Nan really is the sweetest bird on the planet (no bias of course)! Nan will always be a plucker and have self-mutiliatin- g tendencies (hence the need for her collar).

But she's happy, healthy, playful, very loved, and very loving. We love our sweet Duck.

Hi! My name is Brianna aka Nan

I am a Moluccan Cockatoo from coon rapids, IA.

Banana. Duck. Ducky. Squishy Duck. Banana Duck.

25 years old   F

Moluccan Cockatoo

Car rides, which means I always get grape juice and string cheese!

Top of my cage. Shoulders of my favorite people. Cuddling under the covers.

Other parrots.

They love me. Have I mentioned they take me for car rides? They let me chew up books.

They blow dry me after I bathe....They could give me more grapes though. :(


Screaming when I bathe. 3am screamfests. "Vulture" walk. Pretending to be a horsey..

Live everyday like your next grape is your last.

Usually, it is. :(

  Hello from Twilight
Do you know that you look like new snow? We have lots of that here so I know a lot about how it looks. I look like the big Christmas cactus in the wanigan (entryway). I really like hiding in it but I don't think you would like hiding in the snow. It is very cold! I know because once when I was only 1 (I am almost 3 now) I tried to follow my person outside. She stuffed me inside her shirt and rushed me back inside. Brrr! I won't do that again!

Happy flying!

Twilight

PS I am happy that you found your perfect family. Please say hello to your flockmates and your people for me.

Come visit me, Twilight.

  Hi Nan...
Have to agree with you...nekkid is beautiful...just look at me. HAHA! Mom had a CAG one time that plucked himself raw after the arrival of her new baby grandson. He wore a collar like that for along too. He got his feathers back. Maybe in time you will realize you have a forever home and stop mutilating yourself. Regardless...you are beautiful!

Come visit me, Skittles, Miss "B", Sonny & Lincoln.

  Brinna the Beautiful
Hello Brinna, i am a Goffin Too from lexington Ne. You are such a pretty bird, We are so happy for you that you have a loving home. It is hard for us to understand why such a pretty girl would hurt herself so. But Thankgod there are people like your mommy tht still see the beauty in you and give you unconditional love. We found a umbrella too in arizona that was in a petstore surrounded my big Macaws . She was a plucker to and was shivering. Mom tryed to buy her as she came to mom and steped right up on her arm. her eyes begged mom to take her home but the lady would not sell her. She was trying to rehabilatate her from plucking. The poor thing looked so nervos it was sad.. mom tryed for three months to buy her befor we moved back to nebraska. We wonder about her often . We love you and are happy you have a loving home

Come visit me, Princess Gracie Thankyou for making me BOTD, Martha Speaks, Peaches & Dazz.

  Welcome to BC!
I am so glad that you got a good home! You are so beautiful! I am a bare-eyed cockatoo named Chicklet and I have worn an Elizabethan collar several times in the past too because I pluck my feathers. I used to pull out the large blood feathers on my tail and mom once had to restrain me and pull the shaft out because I had broken it off and it wouldn't stop bleeding. She is so proud of me because I preen my large feathers normally now and I no longer need the collar. I do still pluck and have a bare tummy, legs and back. She loves me as I am and we are always glad to see that others realize that us birds have so much more to offer than just beautiful feathers! I hope you have a happy and wonderful life in the care of your forever home! Here's a vote for you!

With wing hugs and love bites,

Chicklet and co.

Come visit me, In loving memory of my beloved Joey, Cleo, Chicklet What a surprise! Thanks everybirdie!, Poppy- Goodbye Joey my love, Jazz & Sunny- Thanks for BOTD everybirdie!.
