Olive

*** This bird is currently on our Waitlist and is with their current owner. It may be possible to visit and adopt this bird prior to it being moved to a foster home. Please keep in mind that birds on the Waitlist may not have had a veterinary visit. Their owners may or may not be caring for the bird at EBR minimum standards of care.***

Per her current owner: Olive has a lot of potential. She greets her human whenever they walk in a room. She has a beautiful voice and has been very loved. She can step-up, but only when she's really feeling like it. She clicks and bocks like a chicken when she eats. She would destroy the world for a walnut. She loves to say "what doing doing", sometimes with many "doing"s added on the end. She needs a patient owner that knows the challenges of a female IRN. She truly is a sweetheart, she just needs the right person to teach her to bite less. She loves when I use my continuous misting bottle to give her a bath. She spreads her wings wide and flaps them in happiness. She loves head scratches and hates her feet being touched.
