Facts about Chiku

Hello Everyone. My name is Chiku and d I am 9 years young! I am extremely intelligent, inquisitive, but a little on guard and apprehensive at times to anything new introduced to me. My foster mom loves me and I step up for her and eat from her hand, but I don't let her touch me yet. I guess that's where the apprehensive/inquisitive part takes over. I believe in time spent and in the development of trust, but I have a lot of years ahead of me to build that trust with my special new family in my Forever home. I am not at all mean, but will let you know that when my feathers are fluffed and head down, to please leave me alone. Otherwise I will follow your commands of stepping up and will take food that I like from your hand. I have an extensive vocabulary; I will talk in 2 conversations at the same time, as if I were 2 people talking at once on the phone. I put words in context at times and I will surprise you, when I say "where you going” as you walk out the door and "what are you doing", when your busy cleaning up after me. I also "ask if everything is ok...” I surprise my foster mom and make her laugh and she directly answers me. She is always teaching me words and someday I know I will surprise when I say to her "the red apple is good." I do respond with a yum though! I am somewhat of a picky eater, but my foster mom gives me fresh fruits and veggie twice a day, along with my mix of different pellets. My special treats are cashews, but I only get those when I am really good and she wants me to go back in the cage. I do want you to know also that I have been very close to a special lady I had in my past life and may not take well to men, but you never know. I am very young and that could always change. Please come and say hi and see if were a match. I am looking for a forever home to love me unconditionally. Love, Chiku.
