Hi I’m Alex I’m around 15 years old, we think I’m a male but who knows. I am beautiful, I am slightly plucked.
I came into the charity due to owner being ill and could no longer care for me.
I am a beautiful boy, I am still quite nervous but I am growing in confidence each day, I have been in my safehouse for 2 weeks now and I am beginning to settle and enjoy the odd head tickles, I was previously with a women carer , but now I
have a slight preference towards the males in the house but if you’re a women I will let you give me a treat and a good beak scratch.
There are kids in my safehouse I’ve never seen any previously and I allow them to give me treats it doesn’t faze me. I am not loud or destructive, I am happy sat in my cage swinging on my swing, I wave and say hello.
I am slowly coming out of my shell and growing in confidence and with more time and patience I will learn to trust.
we are currently trying clicker training with Alex and its going well.
He is still nervous about coming out of his cage but he’s slowly learning hands aren’t that bad.
He does allow you give him treats and a good head tickle.
Alex is on johnsons and Jeff no sunflower or peanuts mix.
He likes blueberries and bananas we are still trying him with veg but he hasn’t took a fancy in it yet.
He loves to be swung on his swing and loves cardboard toys.
Alex will make a lovely bird with someone who has some time and patience, he is allowing you give him
some head tickles, and is slowly growing in confidence. He loves whistling and swinging on his swing.
He does have a slight preference towards males, but he’s not aggressive in anyway he will let women or
kids give him treats.
