The Parrot That Clucks Like a Chicken

This story is amazing.

A British pet parrot named Jack went missing in November 2010 and his owners of ten years of course feared he was dead.

Two months later they received a call that the parrot had been found. Safe and sound. Sounding like a chicken that is!

The parrot was found outside an aviary at the Chester Zoo, where he had been attracted to the young parrots singing inside. A caretaker fed him a grape to get him to come down from the tree he was hiding in.

Then the parrot started to cluck like a chicken. They think he spent time keeping warm this winter in a chicken coop and learned to mimic the chickens!

Someone at the zoo took him in and nurtured him until they recognized Jack from his missing posters and called the owners. He was thus reunited with them.

The owners are calling their new time with Jack "QPT" - Quality Parrot Time and have made a generous donation to the aviary at the Chester Zoo.

And they all lived happily ever after!
