    Hi, My name is Bob. I live in Thailand about 100 km southwest of Bangkok. I am an American and my wife is Thai who teaches English to grades 9 to 12. We have 4 Sun Conures and just recently got to African Grays. I join this forum to learn about the taken care of African Gray parrots. I originally had two Sun Conures and 8 months ago they became the parents of two children. I will try to attach a photo if I figure out how. 1. The first picture on left is our first two Sun Conures 2. The second picture is our 2 African Grays 3. The third picture is the family of sun conures.

    Hi Jojo1! First of all, welcome! And thank you for reaching out to adopt this deserving grey! There are a lot of great cages on the market. But first I'd find out if she has a tendency to fall off her perch with her seizure activity, as that would determine how tall of a cage I'd get. Or, you could get a tall cage and place her perches lower until you figure out how things go for her. I have 2 prevue Hendrix cages; one for my CAG, and one for my macaw. It's a tall cage: https://prevuepet.com/product/642/empire-large-bird-cage-3157 but it works great for all their hanging toys. My CAGs love to swing and dangle from their toys. A fresh diet will be vital, but may take your new baby awhile to transition over to it. Here is a great article dealing with teas for our birds. Perhaps there will be a blend that will help with seizure activity: https://birdtalksubscribe.com/blogs/news/why-tea-is-so-great-for-parrots I mentioned this FB forum to another new member, Joannie, here, which has great information for feeding your baby a healthy raw diet. It's a closed group, so you'll have to request access to it: https://www.facebook.com/groups/AVIANRAW/?ref=bookmarks If you join, please go to their 'files' to read all about sprouting, raw diets and avian teas. First and foremost, I would make certain your grey begins receiving foods rich in vitamin A. They are prone to becoming A deficient. Yams and sweet potatoes are great for that. Also, red palm oil is awesome for them. Greys are very slow to warm up to people, with some taking months to years to fully acclimate to their new caregiver. Patience is everything! Looking forward to reading all about your new baby!

    CAGS learn to say words later than TAGs. So by around a year they usually start sounding out words. When Fynn turned 5 months old, that's when an entire barrage of sounds, whistles and clicks came out of him!

    Hmmm. Wonder if they're not available in NZ. Look up Aviatar harnesses. This one is in the states: https://www.amazon.com/AVIATOR-Pet-Bird-Harness-Leash/dp/B003SLODAG/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1543115189&sr=8-2&keywords=aviator+harness+for+cockatiel Only you'd want one designed for greys.

    Welcome Tali! One recommendation I have for you is that you begin harness training your baby while she's young. That way, if you should decide on letting her have her wings back, you can then take her everywhere outside with you via harness. Once they're older they don't readily accept the harness. Babies are snuggly! I have a 7 month old baby plus 2 other adult CAGS.

    Maggie, please tell Jayd that I have him in my thoughts and I hope the move to hospice is a positive one. In my experience they are very good at caring for pain, so hopefully Jayd gets some relief. E-hugs to you both.

    I'm just getting back online and trying to catch up. It's a terrible choice to have to make, having you by his side has to be of great comfort. Hoping they can help relieve his suffering and he will know we are all thinking and caring for you both.
