    Oh yes, we have had horses for 25 years...I know exactly the scenario you right about...witnessed it several times. I find horses and greys are very very much alike in their behavior, their reactions, etc. No two other species are more alike.
  2. Oh my! Just saw this thread. I am so sorry for her...prayers and best wishes for her. Please keep us posted. ♥️

    Due to my work schedule. I buy a variety of frozen veggies and greens, cook rice, quinoa and pasta, mix it all together, freeze it in small portions for daily use. It’s easy and quick to give them in their “snack” bowl.

    Greys never forget people in their lives. I have read so ma y stories of grey. Ding reunited with their first owners after many many years....they’ll always remember....just like dogs and horses do!

    Grey ingested dime size amount of marijuana

    Sleeping it off is the best thing for him, but you should at least call a vet and ask, it’s a large amount considering his size

    Need advice

    Thanks everyone for the advice. I sent the info to a woman I work for who owns a pet store, she knew a woman who has had birds until they passed away and wanted an African grey, she passed the info on and said it sounds hopeful, still waiting to hear. I did offer to foster or help in any way, but I ha ent hears anything more..

    Need advice

    What do you think introducing a male to 3 females would do if anything? Should that be a concern? Ideally I would foster him & hopefully find him a forever home, but I don't know whether to offer or just let it go.

    Passing on your Grey

    This is difficult for me, I had a plan, but now that my kids are older, they and it has changed. Nilah is my biggest concern, she is bonded to me, doesn’t like other females...but at the moment, all my birds will go to my daughter to do with as she sees best for them. She knows them, understands them and has a heart like mine. She will do right by them. 😥

    Such a fascinating topic!! Talon, say “thirsty bird “ when she wants a drink. Nilah who never leaves me alone....she’s a huge shoulder bird...makes a gurgling sound whenever I go to the bathroom 😝, or run water anywhere. Rikki sau “good morning” when she first see me in the morning. When I have to put Talon in her cage before I-go to work, she says. “Be back soon okay?” Something I’ve aleays said to here before I was working full time and I would put her in her cage when I’d go out.. She always say, “Hello”in her politest voice when my phone rings..

    How is Jayd???

    Yes, I have heard from Maggie, Jayd is not doing well and at this point has decided he wants to spend his remaining time home. Without going into details, both of them are sleep deprived and it is difficult for him to post, but Maggie is hoping she can get a post on here from him soon...please pray for them both...❤️

    Aloe Vera (Plant)

    I don't see a problem with you doing that. That's what many people do to use on themselves. It's a great idea in my opinion!

    Will this cage be fine

    Beautiful cage & set-up!! About once a month, I make a big mix of Veggies, rice, pasta, quinoa, and freeze it in containers to feed out daily before I go to work.

    Prayers for her. Hope all is well. Please keep us updated Jayd

    Is this Normal?

    That does seem like a bit more than normal. How is the humidity in the room ? Do you,have some soothing music perhaps? Please try not,to,worry, they can sense when you are under stress and will react accordingly. You need to be relaxed and calm around them .

    Adopted new grey

    Congrats on rescuing this beautiful grey. He is very lucky. I would do away with the dowel, those are scary if they are not used to it. If you put you hand facing down and make a fist, when you ask him to step up, there really is nothing for him to latch onto. This will help gain trust. Does he know how to step up? Please be careful of the bleach, that’s toxic and very bad for them. They have delicate respiring sytems and can die very quickly from toxic fumes. No candles, air fresheners, self cleaning ovens or chemicals.
