With a beautiful colorful plumage, an intelligent and playful manner, and an uncanny ability to mimic the human voice, you'd think Beaky, a chattering lory, would have no problem finding a new home.

Except perhaps for a couple of things.

Through mimicking previous owners Beaky has developed a rather colourful vocabulary, often turning the air blue with swear words.

Future owners of the foul-mouthed parrot will have to tolerate words such as f***, a******e and stupid.

To add to his sweary tirades, Beaky also has a tendency to be belligerent, sometimes biting his owners.

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."

The RSPCA is now looking to rehome him along with a second parrot, a crimson rosella called Captain Scarlet, who loves to whistle - and unlike his foul-mouthed companion - minds his language.

Angelina Lusher, a supervisor at RSPCA Leybourne Animal Centre near West Malling, Kent, said: "We've tried all our usual contacts to rehome these birds with responsible and experienced owners, but still need to find them good new homes.

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

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

Anyone interested in giving Beaky or Captain Scarlet a new home can contact Leybourne on 0300 123 0751.
