Mr. Grumpy... for a reason

I owned my bird, Mr. Grumpy a while ago, so unfortunately I don't have any pictures available digitally. He was really pretty-bright green with some white and orange-ish areas. The poor thing was given to us by an owner who had small kids and unfortunately he bit one of the children. That's when the family decided he needed to go. We took him in and soon decided that Mr. Grumpy was the best name for him. He didn't seem to like my mom, who mostly fed and took care of him. But I think all of his problems stemmed from his owners not knowing how to take care of him. Regrettably, we didn't do any research besides figuring out what to feed him. Mr. Grumpy needed to fly. His medium sized cage wasn't enough. I would recommend to anyone thinking about getting any kind of bird to really do the research. And pay attention to the bird's wants and needs as you go. Mr. Grumpy was a well-loved member of our family for a couple years before he passed, and I have to say that it was worth a little peck from time to time. Conversely, a friend of mine said her bird (same breed) was super friendly and never dared try to snip at her. She however, had owned birds before and knew how to take care of them.
