Funny pet story: The bunny and the parrot pellets.
Bunnies will eat anything. Tonight I was getting ready to put the parrot in his cage for the night. I always give him fresh water and pellets at night. I put his dish on the coffee table and picked up the supply of parrot pellets. The bunny jumped on the coffee table. She landed on the parrot's dish and fell back on the floor. (Bunnies are good at jumping but not as gracefully as a cat at that height.)
Anyway, the bunny knocked the parrot pellets all over the floor. She was thrilled. She started to gobble up as many as she could. At the same time I was trying to pick the pellets up off the carpet as quickly as I could to keep the bunny from eating them. It was quite the race, but I think she won.
Pretty clever bunny, I'd say. ;-) If she had only jumped on the coffee table, she'd have gotten only a few bites because I would have taken the pellets away. As it was all dumped all over the floor, she had time to eat quite a few more. Bunny was a happy bunny.

My son boarded his conure with a bird rescue facility when he was deployed with his National Guard unit to Afghanistan. When I went with him to pick the bird up we found that the owner keeps a rabbit in the parrot aviary - she never feeds him, he stays fat and happy cleaning up after the birds!
My bun loves my parrots pellets. I give her a few as a treat now and again. I need a new home for her if anyone in NJ knows of anyone. She's a rex, white with some brown markings. Extremely loveable. Likes to be held and petted, for hours. She is a house rabbit. Not caged much, but could adapt to being out just for play. She's litter box trained also. Not a small rabbit, about 9 pounds.

My rabbit cleans all the mess the parrot makes. I give her pellets as a treat. She's fat, but happy.
So-could she then talk and fly?
