Brooke lives with two talkative feathered friends who love nothing better than to chat and wave, wave and chat. Her nine-month-old blue-fronted Amazon parrot Luna wolf-whistles, asks “What ya doing?”, waves and turns around on command and could live until she is 80. Her 10-year-old medium-size conure parrot Tookie has green cheeks, waves and turns around, bobbing her head up and down when the music starts pumping. Dancing is just her thing.

Brooke loves animals and especially birds. She used to have six cockatiels and has had various budgies. She also has two horses, one of which she saved from the knackery.   

“Luna is a one-person bird and gets a bit funny when other people are near me. Both of them mainly eat fruits and vegetables and need lots of stimulation because they are incredibly smart birds. I’ve got their cages set up inside while it’s cold, but they fly around while I’m home. I keep them flighted; don’t clip their wings. They are flight-trained instead and come to me when I call them,” she explains.

“They spend lots of time outside in the warmer months. You’ve got to watch out for lice and worms and make sure they are kept busy. They absorb everything, just like a baby. Both Luna and Tookie love playing with their toys,” she continues.

There are about 30 species of Amazon parrots, while conures belong to a diverse group of long-tailed parrots. Either way, Brooke swears that the entertainment they deliver is A1 for quirky companionship — and it seems she’s right.

Who’s a pretty parrot? Luna and Tookie are. Just ask Brooke!
