RSPCA Appeal For Home For Swearing Parrot 'Beaky'

A foul-mouthed parrot is looking for a new home - provided a new owner can put up with his bad language.

Beaky, a chattering lory, is inclined to turn the air blue with words such as f***, a******e and stupid.

The bird learnt the fruity language from his previous owner but the RSPCA is now looking to rehome him along with a second parrot, a crimson rosella called Captain Scarlet.

Beaky is intelligent but unfortunately is rather prone to poor language

An RSPCA spokesman said: "Beaky is an intelligent and playful bird who is a good mimic.

"Unfortunately, this talent means that he picked up some rather colourful language from his previous home."

Beaky is said to enjoy the company of people but has been known to bite at first until he has formed a bond with someone.

Captain Scarlet, meanwhile, loves to whistle - and minds his language.

Captain Scarlet loves to whistle

Angelina Lusher, a supervisor at RSPCA Leybourne Animal Centre near West Malling, Kent, said: "We've tried all our usual contacts to rehome these birds with responsible and experienced owners, but still need to find them good new homes.

"With Beaky, the new owner shouldn't mind bad language as he comes out with some rude words."

The RSPCA said only people with experience and knowledge of exotic birds are wanted to rehome them.

Anyone interested in giving Beaky or Captain Scarlet a new home can contact Leybourne on 0300 123 0751.
