Other Pets
What other pets does your bird get along with?
None, but this field was required. He has not been around other pets.
Tell us if your bird has any behavior issues?
Why are you needing to rehome your bird?
I have had him since he was a chick but my life has changed a lot and so has his behavior. I now have young twins and when I was no longer ablr to give him as much attention as I used to he began screaming and over preening one wing. Lack of space in my house means his cage is in our bedroom and the constant brutal screaming means I can't relax or get enough sleep. Working from home is a challenge as he screams when I need to concentrate. The stress is too much and I am not able to give him as good a life as he deserves.
Provide us with any additional information that may help a candidate show interest in your bird.
He is quirky and a good flyer, can be very funny. He will dive bomb you if you say the words “Flavortown” or “air pickle.”
