Barney (Goffins Cockatoo) - SE54

Name: Barney

Species: Goffins Cockatoo

Reference No: SE54

Summary: Hello, my name is Barney and I'm a very endearing 35 year-old Goffins Cockatoo.

I'm looking for a confident, experienced owner who likes to play and give me all the attention and love I need. I like men and women, but am probably more of a mature lady's bird. You will need to be responsive and find a balance between doing things that are fun, but putting me in my cage to chill before I get over excited. Like any cockatoo, really, but I can bite if I get over-excited and I don’t want that to spoil my relationship with you. My safehouse calls me "Bouncy Barney" and I play volleyball, tug of war, and roll up the paper when you change my cage. I have a party trick: I roll toys and coins over my back, I'm such a cutie pie. I sometimes pretend to be a squeaky toy, shout "hooray!" and throw my stubby wings in the air. I am plucked, mainly my wing feathers, so watch I don’t get startled or I will plummet to the floor. Even though I'm a bit of a piranha I think the right owner will love me as I am an endearing little fluffball who just loves to have fun. I'm really looking for someone to give me a second chance in life. Someone with time, patience and love to give. Could this be you? I can't wait to start my new life and look so forward to meeting you!

Comes with cage? Yes

Location: Kent
