Kermit

Kermit is a fun laid-back bird who enjoys looking out the window and hanging out on his cage playing with toys. He is really good at staying on his playstand or cage and will quietly entertain himself with toys for hours. He has a history of aggression towards men but prefers his current foster dad over mom. He is target trained and steps up well now that he is comfortable here. He is over aroused by other birds being noisy so he needs a quieter home with few other birds to keep his arousal under control.

He is very charming and his laugh is hilarious! He is a fairly independent bird and should not be on his human’s shoulder to keep his hormones under control and avoid aggression towards other people in the home. His adoption requires consulting with Pamela Clark, who knows him and works with his foster family.
