North West

Hi, North West residents!

Here are some of the parrots in our system that are currently in foster care and seeking their new forever families. 

You can start by completing an adoption application (see buttons below). We try to avoid inter-provincial travel unless we really struggle to find a home in the original region, so this page is dedicated to applicants in the North West only.

Please kindly note that we are a volunteer-run organisation so it might take some time for us to get to your application, especially because we are currently trying to work through a backlog that has occurred as well.

Spotlight on: Violet

Congo African Grey
📍Hartebeespoort, North West
 
Violet is a very sweet girl. However she does love to keep you on your toes. She is always ready for head scratches but only for a few seconds. Then you best remove your fingers otherwise you will definitely get a nip. She does not step up to your hand but she is stick trained and will step up to a stick. When Violet arrived, she was on a seed only diet but luckily one that consisted of healthier seeds.
Since she’s been at her foster’s home, she has slowly started to eat her fresh vegetables. Violet is definitely starting to enjoy her chop but she still does not take any joy in eating pellets. Who doesn’t love a good prankster? Violet’s favorite game is to see how quickly she can give her foster a heart attack. She will relax on her perch, minding her own business. But the moment you walk past her, she will jump to the side of the cage and shout “COME”! Violet has shown a definite preference for male presenting people. Her first vet check will be early February 2022 to make sure she is in good health and she will also get her nails and beak trimmed.
If you have previously submitted an application, please send an email to his adoption adviser, Monique, at moniquec@cheekybeaks.org.za and let her know that you’re interested in this special boy. Alternatively, follow the link provided at the top of this page to submit your application.
All usual processes and procedures apply.
