Poppet (Congo African Grey) - 2197

Name: Poppet

Species: Congo African Grey

Reference No: 2197

Summary: Hello my name is Poppet. I am a sweet little girl who loves whistling pretty tunes.

I'm looking for a home that can provide me with plenty of time. I like being talked too and respond well to a gently voice. I also need a female carer as I respond much better to ladies. I am a very nervous girl and everything has to be done slowly and carefully around me (although I do get a bit better as my confidence grows). For this reason I cannot be rehomed with small children as they are too 'full on' for me. I don't mind other birds from a distance but I am nervous and any that are too boisterous (or just too many birds) frighten me. Although I love human company and like a good sing song, I also like my own time, just chilling and hanging around in my cage (especially late afternoon when I like to take a nap before my tea at 4pm). My bedtime is at 7pm and I like to enjoy a few nuts before my light is switched off and I'm covered ready for a good rest, so I can play all day the next day. You will probably notice that I am lacking in feathers. I am afraid I am a 'serial plucker' and I have to have a daily bath and regular shower to help me with the irritation of feathers! This is probably partly down to a very poor diet for many of my early years. My diet is much improved now and trust that my forever home will continue with this new healthy lifestyle.

Comes with cage? Yes

Location: Cambridgeshire

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.
