A foul-mouthed parrot is looking for a new home - provided a new owner is tolerant enough to put up with his bad language.

A Kent animal centre has said Beaky, a chattering lory, often turns the air blue with

The bird learnt the ripe language from his previous owner but the RSPCA is now looking to rehome him along with a second parrot, a crimson rosella called Captain Scarlet.

An RSPCA spokesman said: "Beaky is an intelligent and playful bird who is a good mimic.

"Unfortunately, this talent means that he picked up some rather colourful language from his previous home."

Beaky is said to enjoy the company of people but has been known to bite at first until he has formed a bond with someone.

"With Beaky, the new owner shouldn't mind bad language as he comes out with some rude words," added the spokesman.

The RSPCA said only people with experience and knowledge of exotic birds are wanted to rehome them.
