Parrot Makes Fart Noises And Has Glaswegian Accent After Living With Man For Years

An animal lover has discovered his parrot with a 'deep, manly' Glaswegian accent loves burping, farting and raving to GBX. Watch him go:

Owner and animal rescuer Ryan Cannon adopted Chickenhawk six years ago and the two have since become firm friends.

The bird can simulate phone notifications by making sounds from apps including Snapchat, but is also be prone to making farts noises and squawking: "Am a bloody wee pigeon."

Chickenhawk can often be heard swearing at her Ryan's four dogs and sniffing like 'she's got sniffers running out of them'.

In viral videos, Chickenhawk bobs her head to the beat of music, and moves side to side for GBX & Sparkos' version of club hit 'Bits and Pieces'.

The parrot's slick moves led GBX to exclaim: "We need to get her down to the next gig!"

Chickenhawk lives with another of Ryan's adopted parrots, Orla, who 'has an English accent which is very sweet and says cute phrases like: 'Hello darling' and: 'Give us a kiss'.'

Ryan told Glasgow Live: "Whereas Chickenhawk has a deep, manly Glasgow accent. She has a huge vocabulary, she says a lot, and she's really good at saying things at the right time."

The SSPCA officer said Chickenhawk's accurate impersonations are 'one of the scariest things about her speaking.'

Ryan added: "I'll have workmen in the house doing things in the kitchen and she'll say things in my exact tone of voice and the workmen will have conversations with her thinking it's me - which can be quite embarrassing."

But the mischievous parrot has a sweeter side, often reassuring Orla: "It's okay" when she gets nervous or asking: "Di ye want a wee drink?" when Ryan fills up their water.

Though Ryan describes his pets as 'loving and affectionate' he warns against adopting the creatures on a whim.

Ryan said: "I wouldn't jump out and buy a parrot for the novelty that they can speak and pick up things, not before you look into the care they need. They're like toddlers, into everything, very messy."

Owner Ryan says he lives in 'complete harmony' with his partner, the two parrots, and four dogs at his home in Millerston, Glasgow.

Ryan said: "Chickenhawk will regularly try to destroy things around the house, she's very very destructive. If you leave her unattended, she'll rip into doorways, door frames and skirting boards.

"They require so much attention, hard work, money, are destructive and very aggressive - they are not great pets, but people do buy them for the novelty then get bored very quickly.

"I would always advocate for people rescuing and rehoming dogs than to get breeders, and check out the SSPCA website or local rescues. Adopt, don't shop!"

GBX's George Bowie said: "I love that, I saw her dancing and thought, I wish I had those moves. We become DJs because we can't move, but she's got it all, she's amazing.

"I can't wait to get her down to a gig, even if we have to keep her in a cage. I was so impressed, it's amazing."
