    She is about 6 years old. The person I got her from had her at
    least a year. That's all I know. We have a goffin in the house
    as well. She gets to spend about 3 or 4 hours out of her cage
    on the days we work. Much longer on the days we are off. I
    build her a new play tree about every 4 months. She chews
    through them like crazy. She will eat anything I put in front
    of her. She gets a pretty varied diet with lots of veggies and
    fruit. Not to mention plenty of my flesh. She has a chronic
    respiratory problem that she had when we got her. The people
    couldn't afford a vet so I finally talked them into giving her
    to me. Overall she plays and eats just fine. She's just a
    bitch! I've called her that so much she now calls ME bitch!!
