    Hi. I have had a "wonderfully vicious" little parrot for
    some time. He lives to bite me, but I absolutely adore
    him. I can trick him into letting me pet him by reaching
    around behind his BF, a cockatoo, and he nearly swoons
    getting stroked, then he is SO angry/embarrassed when he
    discovers this wonderful feeling is from me and not his
    buddy! He was hand raised and is now 23yrs old. I was told
    he was a "Mexican cherry head, but in searching that, I
    think there must be another name they go by? Anyway,
    lately it seems to me he is slowing down a bit. Can anyone
    tell me their average lifespan, and what suppliments I
    might give him? He's had a varied diet all his life...
    Now, Roundybush as a base, and anything he wants off our
    dinner plates. I have a lot of fruit trees, so he gets all
    kinds of stuff I make with the fruit, including just plain
    fresh. I selfishly want to share/squeeze every day I can
    with this hateful little rascal. Any suggestions? Thanks!
