I am good with kids and good with birds.
Eric is a 37 year old male Lessor Sulfur Crested Cockatoo, who does not have a band. Not a lot is known about his past. As with cockatoos he can have a loud yell at times, but he also has some issues with screaming very loud for long periods of time. He would not be a good companion for someone living in an apartment or duplex setting. He does have some fear of children. He doesn't mind small dogs or other birds. He dances, sings 'Ba ba bar ann', moos like a cow, whinnies like a horse, clucks like a chicken, he says his name, hello, bye, and several other things. He is a good eater but very wasteful (only put about 1/4 cup food at a time in his dish, he will pick it up with his foot and throw it), he is currently eating Higgin's Sunburst Parrot, mixed with Higgin's Natural Avian Pellets. He loves grapes, apples, carrots (cooked and raw), frozen mixed vegetables, thawed, rice, sweet potatoes and fresh cranberries. He is a shredder, chewer, so toys with wood and paper are ideal! Eric is a plucker and has chewed off his wing feathers. He loves a warm shower followed by being wrapped in a soft blanket and then being blow dried. He loves to snuggle and preen your hair. He does not like to be left alone, he will scream if he sees you leave the room he is in.
