Popper is a tough bird. He's not the friendliest and he's often surly, but this is due to his difficult upbringing. A friend of a friend bought him from a pet store and did not give him the early training he needed or the attention he required. When this friend moved, she planned on releasing him outside. I'm too much of an animal lover to allow this to happen, so I took him in. I recommend educating yourself as fully as possible about birds before bringing one into your home. A bird is an individual who can live for up to fifteen years -- make sure you can handle this committment before taking it on.
