Background and Personality: Gerri is a little shy until she gets used to someone, but she is not aggressive. She is a true "gentle giant". Once she knows someone she will step up on them, she is also stick trained. She likes to have her beak petted but needs a lot of trust before she will allow her head to be petted. She plucks her chest and tummy when she is stressed, and moving stresses her. She was adopted in 2012, but her owner had to return her when she was forced to move.
