George (Lesser Sulphur Crested Cockatoo) - 2386

Name: George

Species: Lesser Sulphur Crested Cockatoo

Reference No: 2386

Summary: My name's George, I'm a very beautiful bird, and I just looooove men. Not so keen on the ladies, however. I quite like older boy children.

I will play with my Mum but will only step up for a man and am only really handleable by men. I love to play with a ball of screwed up paper. You throw it, I catch it - well, most of the time, anyway. I like to preen my Daddy, he seems to like it. I sometimes enjoy having my crest preened, but much prefer to have this done by people I like (men!). My Mum has learnt not to try and touch me if I'm not clicking my tongue. She knows my body language, and can tell if I'm angry or upset. I can be very destructive – my safehouse Mum's trousers tasted yummmmy when I reached them next to my cage. I tend to chew the covers of my cage at night, to make peepholes, so I can see out. I love to chew Argos catalogues too, they're my favourite, they make a lovely mess! It's what I do best - make mess. I like to have screwed up paper on the floor of my cage, and sometimes I'm clever and find treats hidden underneath. I'm happier in a routine, and it seems to work, as I'm much quieter than I used to be, and feel much happier when I know what's happening and what to expect. My safehouse have tried to harness train me, so I could go out in the garden without the cage, but I didn't like the harness, although Daddy still tries it out every now and then. So if you wish to take me outside you will need to continue with the training or keep on top of my wing clip (which is currently growing out). I am afraid that my safehouse do not have access to a computer at the moment so can’t get a photo of me to show you how gorgeous I am. The photo on the rehoming list is just to show you the type of bird I am but obviously I am far more beautiful than any photo might indicate!!

Comes with cage? Yes

Location: Kent

Note: This bird is in the latter stages of the rehoming process and a potential forever home may have been found. Please do not apply for this bird unless the red writing is removed. Thank you.
