When a pet bird’s squawking saved a British family from being consumed in a fire, the grateful owner said he’d reward “Bob” by finding him a mate. That sounds fair! Of course there’s always the possibility that “Bob” may end up being “Bobbie.” Short of DNA testing, there’s no reliable way to determine the sex of a parrot.
I kind of doubt that would matter to these people.
Apparently the Bird’s noisy behavior had been a source of irritation, but since it saved the family’s lives, there are no more complaints. The type of parrot was unmentioned in the article I read and since there are many noisy parrots I may never know!
