African greys are the most intelligent of the parrot species. Many grow to be extremely sweet and affectionate toward their owners, and the species is known for being quite friendly.
They can be wonderful and affectionate, but, like other large parrots, African greys are considered high-maintenance pets.
All our babies are DISEASE TESTED negative for Polyomavirus (PVD), Avian Bornavirus (ABV), Proventricular Dilatation Disease (PDD), Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease (PBFD), and Chlamydia psittaci. This is extremely important when choosing a lifelong family member. We provide paperwork with every bird we sell.
How Our Babies Are Raised
Our babies are handfed and socialized in our home, along with children, dogs, cats, and pet birds. They are acclimated to having their nails trimmed (both with a Dremel and nail clippers), taught to fly and target land, and are familiarized with wearing a harness. Our goal is to provide your family with a well-adjusted baby with an easy transition to your home.
We have a strict “No Wing Clipping” policy for the first year, and preferably never! We believe full flight is a critical part of life for a healthy bird, for both mind and body.
Weaning and Nutrition!
Our babies are weaned onto fresh vegetables, fruits, and sprouts, along with natural Tropican pellets and Higgins Sunburst Seed mix. The babies are exposed to all types of food for an easier adjustment to their preferences.
Our birds are weaned one by one. From a very young age, they are part of our busy life. They get used to children screaming, cabinets opening and closing, dogs barking, and people handling and talking to them. Just hand feeding is not the answer to a friendly bird! Hand-feeding needs to be done slowly and meaningfully. At this time, it is important that the bird is aware of the breeder’s presence and his loving care. This time-consuming and continuing effort is the secret to wean a super friendly bird!
About African Grey Parrot
The African grey parrot is a native of the rain forests of western and central Africa. They range in crews in countries such as Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea, and right down to western Kenya.
The African grey is considered to be the largest parrot in Africa. As its name insinuates, this species depicts different shades of gray. Its wings are usually dark gray and have a pale gray to silver backside. It has a large black beak, a featherless skin rim, and a white mask enclosing a yellow eye. The African gray equally has a striking red tail. Its females have scarlet tail feathers, gray bodies, and a pale gray crown with dark edges. The African gray parrot has been categorized under two subspecies. These species are the Congo African gray parrot and the Timneh African gray parrot. These two species possess high rates of intelligence the capacity to mimic sounds, whistles, speech, and even talk like humans. However, these birds need proper attention in order to enhance these skills. This varies between them, though
The African gray parrot has a very high intelligence rate. They have been termed the most intelligent species of parrots in Africa. They are extremely talkative and are very sensitive. They can learn hundreds of words and sounds. Their records can be traced as far back as when the Romans wrote about them. When they get aggressive, fly them on your finger or take them on a walk around the house to stop them from screaming. That notwithstanding, these birds can be marvelous and affectionate, entertaining, and rewarding. To keep. They prefer a routine schedule and require a substantial amount of time.
An improper diet can be very harmful to your bird. It can cause feather plucking, overgrown beak, blindness, epileptic seizures, and immune deficiencies. Allow me to take you on a troll on a good parrot diet and a bad parrot diet.
The colorful seeds and pellets in some pet stores are hazardous. This is because the manufacturers use sugar-filled food coloring. This simply means that you are overdosing your parrot with sugar. You wouldn’t give a toddler a bowl of sugar to consume, so why give your bird?
Feeding your parrot with a seed-only diet is not just wrong but life-threatening. Despite the fact that there are no toxic ingredients in it, they are embedded with fat and carbohydrates, and they are the chief cause of health-related issues such as organ failures in parrots. The excess fat and carbohydrates in seeds will cause your parrot’s liver and kidneys to work harder than usual to sift the fat in your parrot’s bloodstream. You know what this means, right? Eventual kidney failure and liver disease.
Dark yellow and leafy green vegetables are usually excellent choices for your parrots.
