A friend of mine I hadn't seen in over 10 years sent me an e-mail titled 'Bird in Trouble'. I didn't recognize the sender at first and was just getting ready to delete the message when I looked again at the sender name and realized 'I think I know who this is. She raised chickens and I bet one is sick or injured'. I called and she began telling me about this bird (that I still assumed was a chicken) who desperately needed a home. I didn't hesitate to say 'yes, I'll take it' without consulting my husband or even the home owners association here. Frankly, I didn't care; I would keep the chicken inside and no one would know. She didn't clarity until the end of a very lengthy conversation that this was an African Gray parrot and she wasn't asking for money for him. He had, she advised, plucked ALL his feathers out repeatedly and was not completely plucked except for his head. When I picked him up he was mad, angry, terrified. ...and cold...it was January. We heated up the car and moved him home as quickly as possible. I made him a pluck-poncho mostly to just keep him warm! FuzzyButt is still a plucker. He gets nervous and bites his feather off or even out like I used to bite my nails (and toe nails when I was a very small child!) so I understand how he feels!.

Hi! My name is FuzzyButt

I am an African Grey from Abingdon, MD.

FuzzyButt, Baby, I'm Cute, I'm Cute, I'm VERY VERY Cute

9 years old   M

African Grey

FuzzyButt likes vanilla oreos that are given sparingly...he takes them apart and licks out the icing and THEN starts turning the cookie in circles while he eats the edges down to nothing. He likes his multi-grain 'sandwiches' with peanut butter inside, tuna fish, potatoes, grapes big time, and sometimes applies and peaches.

FuzzyButt has two huge fake leaves over his cage and castle (actually a 6 foot cat condo that I bought for him), and on his ramps around the master bedroom, and inside his own bedcondo attached to our loft bed that also include his soother

Being offered the wrong color blanket at the wrong times; not following the prescribed routine at night; remember Mom, you created all these so don't deviate!

She tries so hard to understand me, what I'm trying to say with my eyes, the movement of my head and body.

FuzzyButt seems to be a tech addict. He wakes to David Garret music, watched all three of the main Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies with whooping glee, sleeps with and plays (even during the night) one of his lights and lullaby soothers..

Birds are the world's magic.
