Mutations aren't always a bad thing. Some can be quite useful, others not so much, still others can be deadly. The fluffy feathers are rather cute (good for a pet animal), but someone mentioned that birds with this type of feather mutation often don't live very long (obviously not good). I wish the little guy well, it's tough to be different (even for a bird).

He is so cute. When I first seen him I thought maybe one of his relatives was an exotic breed or something. Very attractive in my book.

I think he's beautiful. ''Mutant'' is such an ugly word. Only idiots abandon animals.

I got the impression that it might have been Whipper's Mother that abandoned him at birth (not a human)? Anyway, he's certainly a celebrity bird now. BTW, he cozies up to the mirror...an indication that he can indeed see. Old English Sheepdogs have their eyes covered by strands of fur and they can still see, pretty amazing in and of itself.

This cutie died about 8 years ago, i remember seeing the article in the news paper, was really nice that someone gave him a chance and kept him and loved him, he was a beloved pet and a little bit famous here in New Zealand :)
