THEIR FEATHERY ORIGINS...

Jojo: 
PIKA ピカ

Body covered with yellow feathers, reddish orange cheeks, bright eyes, long tail feathers. She's just a Pikachu in a parrot form except that it is her crest that resembles a lightning bolt instead of her tail feather.



Specific Breed: Lutino Cockatiel
Origin: Australia
Gender: Female
Age: 12 Years
Average Life Span: 15 - 20 Years


These elegant and exotic looking birds are members of the cockatoo family. Known to be "dusty birds" because of excessive amount of powder called the Feather dust. Also one of the only small parrots that hisses when afraid or facing anything threatening.



THE BIRD BEHAVIOUR...

Jojo: 
Supposedly sociable however, she has been so used to playing only with me thus it is pretty unfortunate that she does not seem very keen on being friends with anyone else anymore..

To be more optimistic, she’s actually very loyal since she only recognizes me as her best friend. Hahah!


You can tell her mood by how she angles her head crest:

Angry - Flat Down against the head
Curious / Alarmed - Straight Up!
Tucking her head under the bell.


FAVOURITE TIME OF THE DAY...

Jojo: 
Afternoon because she loves the sun! She loves cheeks and head rubs, cuddling in cosy areas and bath time!



As cowardly as the owner, she does get night fright too! Things do get uptight when she starts flipping her wings and thrashing herself around the cage getting frightened over something in the dark, possibly a noise, insects, light/shadows.

She once bled badly due to the breaking of feathers and we had to do some home first aid treatment to stop her bleeding before bringing to the vet the next morning.

Night fright incident.

After Shower.
After Drying up!
Preening herself to look pretty!
Every-ready for Camera~

THEIR FEATHERY ORIGINS...

Jojo: 

MOCHIモチ
When he starts preening his feathers, he'll have his body curled into very much a fur ball that resembles the Traditional Japanese Rice Cake called Mochi.

Looking good together with the set of Kaya Toast.
Specific Breed: Blue Fallow Parrotlet
Origin: South American - North Western Peru
Gender: Male
Age: 7 weeks
Average Life Span: 15 - 20 Years


Affectionately known as "pocket parrots". They are large parrot personalities trapped in a small parrot body of less than 6 inch in length. Their compact size with comical behaviour and quiet voice makes them one of the most sought-after small pet parrots.

Ignoring everything else. All focused on food.
When you find more joy in dipping into the food as well.

THE BIRD BEHAVIOUR...

Jojo: 

Got this lill fella on 2nd April. At 7 weeks old, he was a pretty clumsy parrot. 

Active and curious, he’ll be playing with his toy swing that has bells attached to it around 8 plus or 9 in the morning. It kinda worked well as my alarm clock.



Loves to bite on cloth and since he is a little too small to spot when he’s out…I know just where to go searching for him if he goes missing! hahah~


After several tries of feeding him vegetables and fruits, he started eating broccoli when he was 9 weeks old!


CJ TRAITS PERHAPS...?
He is Midnight freak - Getting all hyper, whistling to grab my attention to get out of the cage at 1AM. Plus, he pretty much loves companionship!

With pinky the penguin.
With the owner! 




Making himself comfy anywhere as long as he's not alone!
Not really good with photoshoots.
Trying to be part of the drawing when I was planning formations for a performance item~
EDITOR'S NOTE: WHY YOU SHOULD VOTE FOR PIKA & MOCHI
It's not often you see birds being reared as pets, and so many at that! You can simply tell Jojo's love for her little airborne friends with the amount of photos she's constantly taking of them! They remind me that yes there are indeed cute birds other than the annoying pigeons or crows we constantly see.

Just in time for the release of Rio, you gotta love these chirpy thingys!
