Abandoned Bird Has Unique Feathers - Watch The Reaction He Gets When People See Him

While humans may face discrimination from being or looking “different” than the rest, it’s far worse in the animal kingdom. In the animal kingdom, it may mean that you won’t survive. In the animal kingdom, some species like cats and dogs abandon their young and leave them to die if they don’t look like what they’re supposed too.

That’s what happened to Whipper, a green parakeet, according to Little Things. The sweet little bird was abandoned as a baby. Even though he was born healthy, he has a genetic mutation that makes his feathers thinner and wispy and kind of curly looking.

Though we think Whipper looks like one of the coolest damn birds we’ve ever seen, his family did not. We think Whipper is actually quite beautiful and he’s supposedly super soft.

Julie Hayward of Winton, New Zealand thought so too. She took Whipper in and now everyone who meets him just adores him. Though they are a little taken aback by him at first.

“No one’s ever seen anything like him before,” says Hayward of her mutant parakeet.
