The birds' owner says he is concerned for their health
Burglars made off with a foul-mouthed parrot after breaking into a house in Newcastle, police said.
The one-legged African grey "which swears a lot" was stolen along with another parrot of the same breed and a rose-breasted cockatoo.
The parrot's catchphrase is "what's it to you?" while the cockatoo says "what's up?".
A man, aged 23, and a 20-year-old woman have been arrested over the burglary, in Slatyford, overnight on 2 July.
Both have been bailed pending further inquiries.
Owner Bobby Scollins said: "My main concern is the health of the birds as they need specialist care. They are like part of the family."
Sgt Paul Duncan, of Northumbria Police, said: "Those people who are interested in parrots and are offered the birds for sale will know they are stolen.
"It's imperative we find them soon as they require specialist care and failure to provide this may result in their deaths, due to stress.
"I'd urge anyone who has seen or heard of these birds, or been offered them for sale, to contact police as the earliest opportunity so we can reunite them with their owner."
An ornament of a macaw parrot and some paving slabs were also taken during the burglary on Woodbrook Avenue.
