The crusty's - princess parrots Max & Arnie

These guys are also known as Alexandrae Parrots. They are not native to the Port Stephens area, but come from the Western Australian and Northern Territory desert areas.
They make fantastic pets as they are friendly and very gentle.
We only had Max for a few years, and then bought a baby named Ozzie as a companion for her. Unfortunatly Ozzie died and not long after that, we noticed Arnie strolling around the backyard - we think that it really was meant to be that he picked our yard!
They really are more human than birds though - they like nothing better than some cheese & biscuits or even a slurp of warm coffee.
They are also rather partial to pasta or a chew on a chop bone.
