Kuku (Congo African Grey) - 630215

Name: Kuku

Species: Congo African Grey

Reference No: 630215

Summary: Hi! I'm Kuku and I'm a very sweet and loving 18 year-old female Congo African Grey with special needs.

First off, I should tell you that I strongly prefer men (especially older men!), so I'm looking for a home with a loving and patient male main carer. I also need to be reasonably near a vet so I can be checked on a regular basis, as I've developed a bad habit of over plucking and picking at my back area. This is why I wear a collar. But don't worry, the collar doesn't stop me doing whatever I want. I can move around as much as I like. For many years I was left alone for long periods of time because my family worked long hours. I got very lonely, which is why I plucked and plucked and plucked. For that reason I would love to live with someone who was around a lot to keep me company. I'm not a demanding lady, I just really enjoy spending time with my humans. I'm probably best in a home without young children because they might make me nervous. I can talk, laugh, whistle and click. I can speak Gujerati, as well as English! How's that for clever? I LOVE cashews, almonds, pistachios and walnuts. Not too keen on hazelnuts , though! I like to dance to a catchy tune, especially if you dance with me. I also like to travel in the car and look out of the window. I've had a lot of practice, to and from the vet's so I'm getting quite good at it now. As you can see, most of my feathers have grown back now, but my beautiful tail is no more. I've been fine with the other birds here at my safehouse and I enjoy watching them. My safehouse mum says I'm a lovely, lovely bird who's super responsive, sweet and funny. I come with my own cage. I know it's too small, but I really like it and that's that! I have so much love to give to the right person. Just waiting for the right man to come along and give me a second chance at life. So how about it? If you think you might be the one, please apply for me. I can't wait to meet you!

Comes with cage? Yes

Location: Surrey

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.
