Re post due to price drop i just want grace in her new home getting the attention she needs.

I have had Grace up for sale before but after getting to know 2 or 3 people well enough for my baby to go to them they let me down.
She was a plucker when i had her up so i decided to get her out of plucking before trying again she has now stopped plucking and looks amazing she still has a couple of wing feathers to grow but they should be OK in her next malt.


Before she lost all her feathers she was confident on stepping up on command but when she plucked them she lost her balance and therefore stopped stepping up so she needs lots of work on her confidence.


She whistles all the time she says "hello Gracey" "pritty bird" "hellllooooooo" "ruby" (my daughters name) and a few other bits she dances and gives kisses on command.

She is not DNA tested but is more than likly male as she is bonded to a female and has male trates.


This is a very hard desission to make for me as i love my baby to bits but there are a couple of reasons for sale first is she isn't a family pet she is bonded to my partner and wont let my children near her, i can give her a stroke but i have to be awear of her body language. Also as i said she need a lot of work on her confidence and with 3 children and a job we just don't have the time.

£250 without the cage £300 with

I'm so sorry for rambling but she means a lot to me and i want to find her the right home.
Thank you for reading.

Hi

Do you have any more pictures of her/him like a close up of the head side shot please?

How long ago did she stop lucking? Do you know what caused her to pluck? Did you take her to a vets?

Thanks

she dont like the camera so i couuldnt get a pic of her with her feathers flat. She started plucking soon after my daughter was born so she wasnt getting the addention she needed i also believe the stress of living in a small cramped house didnt helped as we were all stressed and i feel she picked up on that. She did see a vet which ruled out any medical problem. She stopped plucking when we moved in our new bigger house in febuary this year.

If you could possibly get one of the white at the side would be great.
