Some of the birds here think that they are the best helpers in the world. Sugar spent part of her day helping volunteer Marianne wash food and water dishes. This special helper is available for adoption. If you can't adopt, you can always sponsor her care.

Barb ComstockMy cockatoo helps me hang up clothes and pulls the sheets into place when I make the bed.... well, I think that is what she is trying to do. In reality she is hanging on the clothes as I try to put them on hangers, and grabs the sheet and runs to the other side of the bed - or runs underneath... Either way it makes chores much more pleasant and fun!
