Skittles

Skittle is new to rescue and is still being assessed.

08/19 From his foster home: He makes the best noises. He plays a game with his human where he whistles, the humans whistles, he responds and so on. He will play it forever if given the chances. He makes the best noises except for the one where his human leaves the room. He supposedly says Hi Skittle and some other phrases but so far we have not been able to make them out.

Veggies are still a challenge as is pellets but this is being worked on.

He loves beads and anything he can twirl in his beak.

Cover him at night and he makes no noise until morning.

He is a very fearful guy but had a traumatic accident where he lost 1/3 of his top beak so we are not surprised. His beak has grown back and he is a beautiful bird.
