I bought Niko from a breeder as a baby, after doing a lot of reading and research. He's a handful, to say the least, but he's wonderful and I love him dearly :). Awards

Hi! My name is Niko

I am from West Bloomfield, MI.

Teen, Teeny ween, Teeny tine

10 years old   M

I eat anything I can get my beak on, but I prefer fruit and veggies, especially grapes, berries, carrots and corn. I am also a voracious carnivor, I especially loves ribs. If i'm out during a meal, nothing on your plate is safe from me, I am a master sneaker :)

Just about anywhere but inside my very spacious cage. For instance, on someones shoulder or knee, on top of my cage, on my play gym looking out the window talking to the birds outside, on the back of the couch in search of the remote so I can chew off the buttons, in dads office where I am no longer allowed because I pulled every button off the fax machine when no one was looking, on the shower door, on the kitchen table where there is always plenty of food, or the floor where I like to chase my doggy.

I HATE plastic food cantainers, especially bags or anything that crinkles.

We have a lot of fun together, we talk, screech, whistle, beep, sing, squeek and make a lot of other silly noises together. Sometimes we even dance around. She scratches my head and spends lots of time helping me with my pin feathers, sometimes I think she likes it more than I do. I can be very moody, but she reads me well and so we always get along.

I like to roll up-side-down or sit head first in my food dishes and talk to myself... "hi niko, whathca doin?". my favorite toy is a red Kong I stole from my dog. I prefer to dip my food in water before eating it, and I like to use plastic bottle caps as little birdie cups- I drop or dip one into a glass of juice to fill it, then I pick it back up and drink out of the cap while holding it in my foot.. very sophistocated :) I am very expressive and opinionated, and am a pretty good talker. I even change my voice to mimick the person I want attention from, it gets 'em every time :).

I don't know about a motto, but i sure do love to say "coulda tell me, whatcha doin?".

It sounds like you like to have fun too! I love to hang out where ever my Daddy is. He is really cool. I like to eat off of his plate or his peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Take care and come visit me sometime.

  Oh great! Raising the bar for Sennies!
Okay, so here I am really knocking them dead with my repetitions of household noises, and I find out that you're out there making bottle caps into drinking vessels and using complete sentences. Now my Mom will be expecting the same from me! Just kidding. Guess I'll have to get to spruce up my act a bit. I'm glad to see you're a carnivore, too... I've been working on Mom to give me more meat, 'cause I love it. Last night I had some shrimp and it was great! But burger's my favorite. I also like to do headstands in my food dish, but it's mainly a ploy to get Mom to pick me up because I'm so clever and adorable. Anyway, welcome to the flock! Pleased ta meetcha!

Come visit me, Turtle Bird.
