is my parrot Gabby, I believe it's a boy but I haven't gotten him
DNA tested yet. (there's no other way with this kind of Lory for
determining gender. He is a Chattering Lory approximately four years
old. He was previously abused and neglected and it took him ten whole
months to get adjusted to his new home and us, the people living in
it! It has now been one year and three months since I've had Gabby and
he/she is improving everyday!
Well, Gabby is very affectionate right now but also very mischevious.
He is jealous of my dog and they constantly compete for my attention. I
think his favorite trick is to hang upside down and imitate people,
since thats what lories do best. He seems like he's very happy right now
at his new and permanent home even though it took him a very long time
to get adjusted. I believe his favorite thing to say is my dog's name
and calling him "Chico!! Come here Chico!!" and he does the whistle
which often confuses my dog :) He is always seeking human attention now,
whereas before just looking at us frightened him. He has come a long
way, and we are glad he is now a happier bird.
