Breed???

What is the breed of bird (bigger size, not quite as big but near that of a Cockatoo or African Grey) that's very vibrant red and blue?? Its two words I think... If I saw it I'd probably remember...

I saw one sharing its cage with "Puppy" (explained in other thread lol) and its overall disposition wasn't so nice but it was still an interesting bird. I can't remember if it was a male or female, but I'ma call it "Batty" as it liked to hang upside down from the top bars from the cage. It stayed like that for a good 5 minutes!



It kept saying, "Hi." and "Whooaa." It was kinda eery at first because I couldn't tell who was saying it! There were other birds in the cages underneath Batty's and Puppy's, a few Conures (sp?) and other little birds... One looked pretty sick, . One of the bigger ones kept trying to push this iddy little one outta its way so I would pet him/her instead. ha ha... And the iddy little one was small enough to put his head and neck through the bars so he kept on pulling at my shirt! ha ha! Silly birds!
