Description: Tutu has the potential to make an amazing addition to the family. In the time we’ve had her she’s been not a bit of bother, she is a lovely bird with an ever emerging personality. She was very shy and stand offish when she first arrived as obviously she had no idea who we were but she’s coming round and now enjoys head tickles from both me and my wife when she is in the mood, when she’s not in the mood she backs off and has never offered to bite either of us. We’ve told the kids to talk to her from a distance so not to freak her out and she responds well to them too.
Night time routine is nice and simple she steps up on to her perch and she is easily placed back in her cage… we did have one night where she decided it wasn’t bed time and every time she got near the cage she climbed up the outside and flew back over to the Java wood haha. Once in her cage and covered she’s done till the morning no noise. (Not that she’s a loud bird because she isn’t she just chatters away).
Feeding again is no problem she’s happy to eat fresh fruit and veg, seed and pellets we tried her with a bit of scrambled egg and she loves that too and she’s not really a messy bird either very little overspill from food dishes to living room floor. Unless you give her a big chunk of carrot which she will spread around a bit.
It’s obvious that Tutu has been a plucker in the past and that her feathers have made a really good comeback but it’s also important to mention that this would need an eye keeping on so she doesn’t revert back to old habits… she hasn’t shown any signs whilst here so fingers crossed she’s past it. I will be doing updates of her progress with photos and videos on the problem parrots extra group.
Can you give Tutu the forever home she deserves?
