Because I haven't yet, I want to thank my friend @parrot_adventures_ for finding Havoc on Craigslist. If she hadn't been looking on there, who knows where he might have ended up? She's only in high school, so she couldn't pick him up and take him in herself, but she has been running the @havocthecockatoo account to help out as much as possible! So far, we can tell that Havoc says "I love you" (slide one) and "hey/what'cha doin', cockatoo?" He also laughs and attempts what sounds like other words, but they can't be made out. He does not know that being presented with a hand is a request that he "step up" (he only did it that one time through the cage), but when he wants to come to me, he'll step onto my arm. He will also hold my hand and lick it (he loves that, lol) but doesn't step onto it. He also reacted to the floor like it was some new and foreign thing, so I'm not sure if that's because he had never been on a floor or because he was in that cage for several months. I don't know if it's possible for him to be so gentle and friendly if he never came out of a cage his entire life, but it strikes me as so strange that he doesn't step up. He's not at all afraid of hands, but he is terrified of men. If a guy walks in, he'll freeze and start trembling. He is getting better in Marti's presence, though! He loves when we laugh and sing.
