When I first came into Rescue, if anyone came within even a few feet of me, I would have a panic attack and fall on my back screaming, flapping, and kicking. I would also bite pretty hard – I was just so scared that I didn’t know what else to do. But I have flourished in foster care and I am now a much happier parrot. I get plenty of daily out of cage time with my foster family. I don’t pluck anymore, but like I said, I will always be a nudist due to feather follicle damage. I love to be in the middle of all of the action at all times and I love to talk and amuse you with my vocalizations. I can bark, quack, and I am picking up new words all the time.
I am still learning to trust though and am working on stepping up consistently, but I love to take treats from your hand and I enjoy my toys. My training has been a long road, and I will get there as long as I am with someone who has lots of patience and love to show me. I really need an experienced large bird owner!
I have been in Rescue since 2013 after coming in with 3 other birds, so I am very much looking forward to finding a family of my own where I know I will be safe and loved. Maybe that could be with your family? I would really like for you to come meet me so we can see! In the meantime while I wait for my perfect family to come along, maybe you would like to send me treats or toys? Some of my favorites are tube bells, wood bead toys and Roudybush size large, so I can hold them while I eat. Everything can be found on my Amazon wish list. Here is the link:
Hope to meet you soon!
