||Two and a half years old|
||Rawalpindi, Punjab, Pakistan|
is a very clever bird. He can speak 50 to 60 words in Urdu. He is
allowed to fly freely in open, and he always comes back on my call. He
is smart and never eats anything from strangers. Loves to go riding, but
only with me, on a bike.
My pet Raju is very loving and loves to be my family, he mostly loves to
play with my son who is almost of same age. Sometimes he steals my kid's
toys and leaves him crying. Raju can speak only memorized sentences so
far, but he understands everything.
I have been taking care of Raju since he was only five days old. His
parents live with me as well. There were four chicks, but the parents were
inexperienced and not feeding them properly, so this siblings died.
I then took Raju out from nest and handfed him. So he is very bonded to
me, as well as being a big, handsome bird now.
