Description

Details
Gizmo had a terrible accident a couple years ago. In a night-fright he got his wing stuck in the cage bars and broke it. Subsequently and before his caregiver awakened to help, Gizmo performed "surgery" on himself, removing his ulna (the main bone of the wing). The bone could not be found and ultimately Gizmo's wing was amputated at the shoulder. The loss of a wing has made him somewhat cantankerous as you might expect, but also very unstable if he gets upset or excited. He cannot fly, obviously... and when he tries, it's a very upsetting thing to watch. Other than the wing though, he's a pretty normal 'too in every other regard. He has a bit of a potty mouth and a limited, but clear vocabulary. He DOES NOT like men, but is very sweet with females.

This is a bird that'll need an experienced, female caregiver. A little bit of kindness in though will produce a wonderful response back. Gizmo really does love to be cuddled and petted and even though he might have somewhat of a "disability," he deserves to be loved!
