Hi my name is Diego.
I'm a Congo African grey. My safe house mummy says I'm a very genuine birdie with some trust issues. Because of these trust issues I'm not cuddly and don't know how to step up. I get very worried very easily and when I do I lunge at what's worrying me, although my Safe house mummy says I've made massive improvements in such a short time, I will even let her give me head scratches, I do love a good scratch. But if you catch me on my newly growing feathers I will let you know.
I do pluck but SH mum says I do this when I'm bored, but I have just discovered boxes! Boxes are awesome I can spend hours chewing them up and then when I get tired I go to sleep.
Now for the good stuff
I can talk, can say hello, I can whistle the McDonald's theme tune (but never on camera), can intimidate a dog crying ( I do this when I'm worried) and also do a lot of mumbling... My SH mum has said she's surprised I don't say 'what' cause she never knows what I say.
I love coming out of my cage and I will spend all day and night on top if I could. Because I pluck I have no flight feathers on my wings but it doesn't stop me flapping. I quite often scare my SH mum because I look like I'm going to try and take off.
I'm a very good eater but not really sure on veggies but SH mum got me some chop and it's a amazing. I love apples and grapes
If you think you have time and patience to teach me how to do all the normally birdie things and teach me that I can love without worrying then please apply
I hope to meet you soon
