He is generally a good-natured, adventurous bird, but he can get bold and gently nip if he feels he is being ignored. Kiwi loves kisses and petting, baths in the sink, and company. He is very interactive and social. He is trained to go back into his cage at night, or when required (such as when we are leaving the house). He is used to living with a dog but can be annoying for other animals. He loves to try all sorts of food especially things he sees human are eating. Kiwi loves nuts, fruits, biscuits, toasts and similar on top of regular parrot food and treats. Likes: Generally he is free to be out of his cage and likes to watch all activities around him. Dislikes: New things. It might take him a day or so to even start on a new treat stick in his cage, but once he has accepted it, he will settle down fine. Hoovers, dust pans etc. or anything large being brought into the room will have him squawking loudly in complaint and flying about for a few seconds. He is just finishing his molt but soon he will look pretty again.
