We also ordered the Prime Vitamin per your recommendation.

I have had him since the middle of his weaning.

 

Editors note ~ about 20% of parrots are sexually dimorphic meaning you can tell the sex by the bird’s color. Males are green, females are red, so Julia can use the pronoun “him” with certainty. Endnote
