this little guy entered our lives for 12 hrs, on the way from one family to a primary school. he would follow you around the house and 'cheeped' loudly if you left it alone. it insisted it had to sit upon you. it was kinda warm on your shoulder having a nap, but it failed to give me the piraty look one requires in these modern times, so it got the chop (not literally) and later that night went to another household.
we named it 'bartelbeak' i believe the school kids have since named it 'cheepie'. it responded to 'ducky'
