Whipper is a parakeet in New Zealand. A fluffy mutant parakeet who was abandoned by his mother because of his bizarre looks. No doubt he'll be quite popular with people! -via Unique Daily

Surely, it's not just a matter of appearance that caused the mother to abandon it? Although perhaps that was key in her decision not to spend her time on an unhealthy baby?

I tried to post links to what he is. I researched it a little. He's what they call a feather duster budgie. It's a genetic mutation where the gene that controls feather growing doesn't turn off. The birds suffer muscle wasting and usually die before they're 8 months old.
