Hello, I am Cricket, and I think I like this name because I repeat it all the time!

I got lost but was found by some nice neighbors and taken in by a Mickaboo foster who lives in the complex where I was found and who also actually caught me! I am now eating a very healthy diet of Harrison`s pellets and a big bowl of fresh vegetables and fruit daily! I LOVE my fruits and veggies! I would love to eat more almonds, pistachios, and nuts in general but my foster mom only lets me have one of each a day. I need to watch my waist line!

I am a pretty mellow guy who loves to make kindling of my wooden toys and foot toys are the best! I do have a preference for the ladies but young children I am very alarmed by and will scream like them. I am not sure if I like dogs much, they stress me out, but I find it fun to speak dog and bark. Everyone here thinks I am a pretty special guy and my foster parent is impressed by how gentle I am. I will step onto a perch and from there a hand. We are working on the stepping up from the cage without a perch, but I am a very good boy and have not -- nor do I want to -- bite! My motto is, respect my territory and I will be good smile

I step really well now on moms hand and anyone can get me to step up on a perch or branch. I do prefer my mom over others, she keeps saying it is the Florence Nightingale Effect..whatever That is! I love to be in the center of attention and out with everyone pretty much all the time. I mean come on, who wouldn`t want to be around pretty female birds all the time?! This however is not helping my hormones which are pretty ramped up. Some people seem to think I should only like female birds like myself but nope, I like them all! Especially the pretty severe macaw here!

I do talk in human a little bit but prefer to garble my own words and growly noises are lots of fun. Ok I need to go chew this wooden block some more so here is mom:

Cricket needs to be housed preferably as an only bird or with another male as he does get very hormonal around the girls. He has an old injury to his wing which showed up on x-ray and some wear in his left ankle. He is being seen to figure out why he has excessive urine but we are still not sure what the cause is as his test results have all been good and kidneys are fine. This could merely be an allergy of some sort but just letting this be known. He is a VERY good eater and despite not wanting to be touched for skritches he does love to be around the family for ambient attention. He really is a good bird and with someone who can give him more one on one attention could make the perfect companion.

Thanks, mom. If you are interested in me, please contact Mickaboo`s Amazon coordinator, and they will get back to you as soon as they can!
