PostSubject: New African grey mummy!   21st January 2012, 9:37 am

Hi all my name is Liz.
I have dreamed of owning my own parrot for yrs now and now now decided the time is right for me to have one.
I have decided the African grey would be the best most suited parrot for myself and family.
I welcome anyone that can offer advise, hints and tips on anything to do with this type of parrot from general care and needs, and taming etc.
I am hoping to collect my boy in the morning, so will put up pics soon.
I have called him Einstein although since choosing this name I have discovered there is already a famous grey called this, which I did not know. But now feel we both have alot to live up to Laughing
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank bob and Diane for all the advise so far, and hope to stay in touch!

Hi Liz

Einstein is fast asleep, probably excited about going to his new home later today.
the members on the forum will give you all the help and advice that they can. We are a very friendly bunch.
So on behalf of myself and all the forum members we would like to welcome you on board and look forward to the photos of your little fellow.

Thank you for your comments and you have our home number, as we have said we are only a phone call away. I suppose you could walk from your house to ours in less than 10 minutes anyway.

Bob

Hi Liz hope Einstein is settling in on his first day! Kara came to live with us 3 weeks ago so she is settling in well now! Look forward to seeing your pics and to sharing our experiences of being new African grey parents! Regards Gordon

Hi you would think he has been here weeks not hrs!

He was eating straight away played with all toys in his cage and had a good nose about, including falling to bottom of cage on several occasions lol

One thing I have noticed, when he's sleeping he grinds his beak is this normall lol

Yes, he will grind his beak a bit so don't worry, probably just sharpening it up for tomorrow, lol lol

They are really clumsy little beggars, they will trip over their own feet.
So glad he has settled in ok.

I know it's early days but can't believe how use to me he seams, no hesitation in coming out of cage or anything. You guys must have done a lot of hard work with him to get him so well handled Smile

Don't forget, you are not a stranger to him. you came in every day to see him and play with him so a lot of the credit has to be taken by you.
The only difference now is that you can see him in his own home surroundings.

To be fair, he is used to being taken out and put back into his cage by you, and you showed him that you were confident with him and of course that trust he now has in you has made him settle in easy as well.

It is all down to trust in both, and both Diane and I could see your confidence grow every day and of course his too. You could see that when he saw you he knew he was coming out and had no problems at all allowing you to put your hand in and get him out.

The time you spent coming in to visit him, and the many questions you asked, certainly has worked for both you and Einstein, and in all honesty I wasn't worried at all when you went away with him today.

What do yopu mean 'Yet' we don't want to get rid of you at all.
You need to bring Einstein in regularly and see us,

How is he doing this morning.? Don't tell me, he has shared your toast and cornflakes.

Don't forget to give him a bit of sunday lunch as well, he likes yorkshire pudding by the way

hello liz,welcome to you and einstein. he sounds wonderful and i'm sure he'll be up to no good,in no time Very Happy it's great that he's settled in already.

jasper grinds his beak alot too,especially when he's getting ready for bed time lol! and don't worry if einstein sometimes fluffs his chest feathers or they appear to quiver,this is a sign of contentment too

jasper will be a big whole 5 on friday Very Happy

i cant believe how the time has flown,it only seems like yesterday when we went to fetch him from his breeder,a fluffy little bundle of feathers. i can remember sitting at their house trying to get jasper to come to me,he just wanted to carry on playing and then he'd wandered off somewhere,nowhere to be seen. i had my arm on the back of a chair and suddenly out of nowwhere a little beak appeared and grabbed my finger. 'there you are' i said laughing. since then there's been no looking back,he seemed to take to me straight away lol!
