Natural Habitat

These birds are a flock bird which can be found in the African Congo Jungle.

Behaviour:

Greys like to be part of the family and need lots of love and attention, they tame easily and as they have the intelligence of a 5yr old they mimic well, sometimes holding a vocabulary of 2000 words.

Captive Environment:

A large parrot cage is the best way to keep greys, no smaller than 2ft 6” x 2ft 6”.  Offer plenty of different toys for the bird to play with as they become easily bored.  A happy well cared for parrot can live up to 60 yrs.

Temperature:

Room temperature away from draughts and any scented candles or air fresheners, as these can kill the bird.

Nutritional Requirements For African Greys:

Parrot seed mix, dried fruit, fresh fruit, vegetables and plenty of fresh water, changed daily.  Never give your parrot CHOCOLATE, RHUBARB, ADVOCADO, OR ALCOHOL.

Calcium supplement – nutrabol or calcivet.
