African Grey for sale
We are a private breeder breeding Congo African Grey and African Grey Timneh. We hand-feed all our baby birds for two weeks until they are weaned and eating well on their own. Our young birds are tame, sweet, and socialized.
African Grey Aviary is a very small “hobby aviary.” It specializes in Breeding super friendly baby birds by giving them individualized attention. It breeds only a small quantity of birds: African Grey Congo Parrots, African Grey Timneh Parrots. Because of our small production, most of our birds are already reserved by hand-feeding time. You can reserve a bird with a small deposit when available. Since our birds are mainly purchased by people who desire to add a friendly pet bird to their family, we make sure to breed genetically strong birds that could live a healthy life. Our birds are guaranteed friendly and healthy.
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 your 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!
African Grey Parrot Personality, Food & Care
African Greys are most famously known for their high intelligence and fantastic talking ability, but they are so much more. They can make outstanding companions, and they are extremely social. The decision to add an African Grey to the family should not be taken lightly. They require lots of training and consistent love and interaction. It is a life-long commitment but one that can be extremely rewarding.
African Gray Parrots are categorized into two sub-species – Congo African Gray and Timneh African Gray. Almost all the African Grays possess high intelligence and the ability to imitate and talk like humans. They also have the potential to mimic sounds and whistles. To enhance these skills, the African Grays need proper attention. However, this may vary from one African Gray to another. They should also be taken out of their cage regularly.
As the name suggests, these birds depict different shades of gray. They have dark gray wings and a pale-gray rump. A featherless rim of skin around the eyes is whitish to light gray. Their head and neck feathers have paler margins, giving that part of the body a scalloped appearance. The Congo African Gray has a red tail, and the Timneh African Gray has a dark-maroon tail.
The African Gray Parrots are native to the primary and secondary rainforest of West and Central Africa.
The African Gray Parrots are relatively quieter birds. This Psittacine family member is popular as the best parrot at mimicry. Studies have shown that the African Gray Parrot can actually understand and use human language. These birds, however, can be quite temperamental and are known to be nippy.
African Gray Parrots are particularly known for their feather plucking. Various possibilities work behind triggering this type of behavior in them. It usually varies from improper food habits to boredom and ill-treatment. Lack of mental peace can also cause this demeanor. They have the distinct tendency to bond to only one person.

The African Gray Parrots are incredibly talkative, intelligent, and sensitive birds. These birds are considered the best talkers of all the birds, quickly learning hundreds of words and other sounds.
