Who’s a cheeky boy, then? Beaky 
the swearing parrot seeks home

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

Beaky, a chattering lory, often turns the air blue with four-letter words, profanities and insults.

The bird learnt the ripe 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.

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 until he bonds.

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

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.
