Caesar the Plum - 10 Pics

Posted 4 months ago / Views: 2,033

See, I had recollected my thoughts quickly and remembered reading about a species of parrots described as "not as loud" - and they were gorgeous! Only, they looked so exotic that I was certain my local breeder didn't have them in his collection.

It turned out he did have a clutch of baby plumheads - but with only one survivor. That year, the weather was harsh even in spring. One night, the temperature suddenly dropped below zero - and the rest of the clutch sadly didn't make it. That's when I knew - we were meant to be.

Fast forward to seven years later, here I am with my gorgeous feathered baby Caesar, writing this. And we couldn't be any happier. I didn't get a plummie because they look beautiful - which they do. I got one because their personality goes well with mine.

They aren't cuddly - so don't expect them to resemble dogs or cats - or conures and other cuddly birds, for that matter. They're way too proud and independent to let you ruffle their precious feathers! They aren't the best talkers either, so don't compare them to african greys. They are shy and reserved at first, and it isn't easy to earn their trust. But I am patient and I do love a challenge! Yes, it takes longer to tame them than most other birds, but once you do - the trust and bond you have is beautiful and I don't regret any of the effort and energy I put into building it.

I will say one thing though - plumheads are NOT quiet. When Caesar gets excited, I can hear him screaming from outside - through the window, and then through another balcony window. But that's just the thing - when getting a bird, you have to accept some simple facts. All birds scream. And all birds bite. But that doesn't make them bad! It's just part of who they are. And if you can't deal with that - don't get a bird. Simple as that.
