Charlie and Wallace (Orange Winged Amazons) - 2490512 & 2230512

Name: Charlie and Wallace

Species: Orange Winged Amazons

Reference No: 2490512 & 2230512

Summary: Hello, our names are Charlie and Wallace. We are Orange Winged Amazons and we are looking for a permanent home together. We are very much in love and can’t be split up. We are two happy birds who like to sit on top of the cage together and when the cage is open we are straight out before you can blink.

We are not fully hand tame but we do step up onto a perch when asked. We make our safehouse Mummy laugh around feeding time as we can be a little on the noisy side - if you have food we want it! We love to eat and like what she has to offer: fruit, vegetables and toast. We are not fussy eaters and even like what the children eat. Mummy bribes us to do things with food. Wallace is pretty quiet at the moment, but I (Charlie) love having my head stroked and being tickled. I’m slowly getting the hang of sitting on peoples shoulders, this is just a confidence thing - I’m sure I’ll get to understand what your trying to achieve. Our cage is our play area, and of course we love playing silly games - this involves me flying around the room and hiding behind the cage “Peaky a Boo!” I recently played a trick on my Mum by opening the cage myself. I was fed up waiting for our food to be brought into us - be warned where there’s food there’s us ..haha..! My friend Wallace is very shy, he doesn’t like hands and is so nervous of people, sadly he has never been handled and has had a unsettled start in life. He likes to do a funky dance with his head but you have to be sitting down at a distance to notice this, I think if you give him a little bit of toast when he does something silly that you like then he’ll do it all the more. Men!!! He will get there if someone spends the time with him. It would seem we both have a lot to learn, the main thing is trust but please understand this doesn’t happen overnight. We are currently living together in a safehouse with another parrot, dog and cat and we are not fussed by these and we will just sit and watch what is happening around us. We’re ok with background noises like the hoover, TV’s, etc. We have tricked our safe house Mum by copying the noises of the house phone, we’re not sure if the telephone call is for us regarding a new home, but I’m sure it won’t be long! We like women and men but are not sure about children. We like attention and we’ll give you ours, if we sit back with our mouth open we just want to be left alone, but if I put my head down its time for a neck massage! Remember to give me a little treat afterwards so I know I’ve done it correctly. We are two lovely birds that need a forever home and would really like a chance to move on, gain confidence and build trust. All we need is someone who is patient, caring and understanding. We are living in Leicester, and we come with a cage. We are waiting for Birdline to work their magic for us now, hope to see our new foster home very soon.
