Hello. My name is Trimini and this is my boy Kevin. He is 9 months old. We live in Chile. Kevin was a house/farm warming gift from an exotic bird breeder who was our old neighbor. Kevin is my first bird and my very good friend. When I got him he was only one month old and it was the start of winter on the brink of a move. The timing was awkward and I had no idea what I was doing. But, we made it through the winter (reversed seasons here in South America). My husband and I build him a beautiful aviary and he loves it there. There is still more work to be done, like putting up more tall roosts for him, and toys. Kevin loves shiny things so he has some CDs, mirrors and crystals hanging all over the place. Last night he received his best gift yet, three young chickens (two hens and a rooster) moved in with him. He is being very good. He is establishing the pecking order for sure, but all in all everyone is very civilized.
Anyway, it´s been a few months of very had work, but now things are stable and there is tranquility in the aviary. Kevin is a huge mama´s boy. He likes being hand fed by me, he hangs out with me when I come in to eat my lunch or read, he even knows a few voice commands. He is not very social with other humans, but he is not aggressive either. He IS a thief though hehehehe, so hold on to your shiny things should you enter.
Here are some cool pictures we wanted to share.
