I named him scrappy because he ignored his food and ate our toast and pizza scraps. I couldn't get him away from people food, actually; he would just fly over and start picking it apart, whether it was mine or anyone's. He learned to step up almost immediately, so if he was ever bothering a guest, I could just come in and pluck him off their shoulder or their dinner plate, and give him some seeds or whatever. He was very social with everyone, and would often rub his head on peoples' faces lovingly. We never did train him not to just relieve himself on people, though. And every once in a while, he would just sort of masturbate all over someone's hand... It was weird. I think he thought my brother was his mate or something. He used to chirp, take flight, and land on his shoulder every time he walked in the room, and every once in a while, he would bite his earlobe. My brother hated him, but I loved him. Smart, loving, funny, great bird. 10/10.
If you're going to get one of these, think about getting just one; if you get two, they might get too attached to each other, and start hating you. It happens.
