A parrot with PTSD is on the road to recovery after being adopted by a new owner - who soothes it by singing ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’.

Amusing footage shows 10-year-old Chicken Man parrot squawking along as sanctuary volunteer Brenda Jorgensen gently sings the children’s lullaby.

The bald bird plucked all its feathers out due to stress and suffers with PTSD after spending its entire life locked up in a cage.

It ended up in a shelter after being seized by animal control but due to its tendency to peck, shriek and shake when stressed, rescuers struggled to find it a home.
