Hi, I’m Billy a 16-year-old male Senegal.
My safe house mum says I’m a cheeky little sweetheart, but I like it best when she tells me how handsome I am – something we both agree on!
I don’t actually say words, but I make lots of different whistles and noises that I like you to repeat back to me, sometimes I like to whisper them just to make sure you’re paying attention.
My favourite thing to do is play under the paper at the bottom of my cage, I’ve worried my Safehouse Mum a few times until she’s realised where I am. All the openings to my cage are kept locked with a clip as I am a master of escape!
It’s quite a busy house where I am at the moment, lots of people, 3 other birds a dog and a cat. None of them bother me except my safehouse dad. He frightens me a bit and I have bitten him once or twice to prove it. My favourite person is the teenage son, I am always calling him and I love to have tickles and his undivided attention. Although I do let everyone else give me a tickle, his are the best!
I don’t step up, but will happily come out of my cage for a fly about until I find a head to land on. Depending on the owner of the head, I will preen them, myself or if it’s my favourite I’ll try to take his nose ring out just for giggles! I’ll put myself back in my cage when I’m done.
I like a good bath in my water bowl and don’t be surprised when you see me drink as I do it with my feet – can’t risk getting my lovely beak all wet can I?
So, do you have room in your life for a handsome, cheeky sweetheart?
If so it could be a match made in heaven!
