Inspect

You carefully inspect your tiny purple parrot.

You determine that you could not wear the parrot.

You remember that you registered this item between three and four years ago.

It looks like this item has been mainly crafted out of organic material.

Analyze

You analyze your tiny purple parrot and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions, but the creator has stated that "The item has restrictions on changing the noun."

The creator has also provided the following information:
You get the impression that this parrot can be freely altered by any willing merchant, though it must always remain a "parrot".

You can currently try to WHISPER (the syntax is WHISPER MY PARROT <TEXT>), WEAR, REMOVE, POKE, PULL, and PUSH the parrot.

You get no sense of whether or not the parrot may be further lightened.
