got Gypsy as a second-hand bird several months ago. Although he was
neglected in his previous home he is the sweetest bird I know. His
previous owner, and elderly lady, bought him to breed. However, the
bird was not nearly old enough. Plus, this lady was very fearful of
him and had very little interaction with him.
He doesn't talk, but he does do the sweetest little "Too
groans" He has a deep scruffy voice that is so pathetic he just
melts your heart. He still doesn't like to be held, but he will let
you pet him on top of his cage for hours. He puts his head down to
pet him and will practically fall over because he gets so entranced
and relaxed with the "Scritching."
He is absolutely beautiful. His crest stands so tall and proud when
he goes into full display, and does his "bunny hops" across
the top of the cage. Sometimes he does his normal "scream"
but I also hear a lot of "Donkey Brays" lately. You would
swear I have a donkey in my living room! This just makes his
personality seem even more sweeter to me.
I have made a lot of progress with Gypsy in the last few months. His
favorite thing to do is to destroy Wood. He doesn't care if it's
scraps of wood, or my Mother's antique chest. It is all the same to
him! He's even tried to pull the window sill out of the wall. You can
be so mad and all he has to do is put his head down for a scritch and
all is forgotten. If all birds were as sweet and lovable as this one
every one would own one!
