I could see the novelty of owning one of these birds wearing off rather quickly.

Steve Dockerty, 63, was left baffled when fire crews banged on his door investigating a fire at his house in Northamptonshire – only to discover his parrot Jazz perfectly imitating a smoke alarm. Mr Dockerty, a retired steel erector, adopted 17-year-old African grey parrot Jazz 12 months ago in order to give his other parrot Kiki, 16, some company and said he was ‘amazing at doing impressions’. The firefighters were called after operators at the smoke alarm company heard the parrot.
