Melvyn is a very comical bird , happy to do his own thing , he is not a cuddly tame bird , he is scared of hands. Once you have gained his trust he will give you his foot and try and feed your finger , he will back away if you try and stroke his head. The only time he shows aggression is if he is scared or you try and force him to step up when he doesn’t want to , this only occurs away from his cage. Melvyn loves all food and is not a fussy eater , he would become a pig with seed if he was allowed to. He sleeps 12 hours , covered and once in bed you don’t hear from him. Melvyn can bark like a dog and sound like a phone ringing , he says mum , nunight , love you . When he is agitated he shouts don’t bite , naughty bird , or get in your cage before I squirt you . He has the most endearing voice that melts your heart , he is under 5 years old and has improved amazingly since being in sh, he has gone from a very bald chicken to an almost fully feathered one . This boy needs a home where he has a human around a lot , he doesn’t like being alone for long periods of time. Melvyn isn’t destructive , he has lots of toys but doesn’t pay much attention to them , he loves nothing more than to drink water from a cup , and says want some water , is that nice . Melvyn would be suited to a family home that is fairly busy , he has a lot of love to give and is a very special bird that has had a hard start in life.
