Flighted: Buddy is flighted, fit and
active. Although he prefers to walk and climb, he requires a home that is willing to
keep him flighted and safe when he decides to stretch his wings.
Other Pets: Buddy would prefer any other
pets in the home to keep their distance.
Well socialized: Buddy is a social and
engaging fellow with lots to say and sing. He isn't into cuddles or scratches right
now, but he will happily chat and whistle along with everyone. Buddy would like his
humans to have lots of time with him, hanging out, watching TV or just relaxing. He
likes to watch everything that's going on from atop his cage or play gym. He enjoys
making his toys last and playing gently with them. Buddy needs a family that will
keep his mind busy and engaged.
Good with other birds: Buddy likes living
in a community, but he prefers not to have anyone else on top of his cage, although
he likes to go and visit his neighbours (even when they wish he didn't). Buddy would
do well in a multi-bird home, but he requires close supervision to keep him out of
trouble. Buddy would also be happy as an only bird with a family who has lots of
time for him.
Good with kids: Buddy can be protective of
his cage and belongings and sometimes needs his personal space. Buddy would enjoy
living with older children willing to have a hands-off relationship with him or in
an adults-only home.
Diet: Buddy eats a healthy mix of pellets,
nuts and a few seeds. He can be suspicious of new foods but enjoys fruit and some
vegetables. He loves treats, and his current favourites are peanuts, almonds, and
Bio: Big Buddy would be best suited to a human family with some
parrot experience, who understands that he is an independent man with strong
opinions! Buddy would like a family that will respect his autonomy and don't
pressure him for snuggles. He needs plenty to see and do at home; he enjoys treats,
and needs space to move and explore and play. Buddy can be vocal at times and cannot
live in an apartment.
