  1. Hey guys, long time since i posted, sorry. So i never did find out what creech's band numbers and letters meant, guess it doesn't matter right. He is doing pretty good from what i can tell. His beak is it's normal color now, he's growing in new feathers, looks really good. He loves bananas and peanuts and peanut butter, his favorites, in small quanities. His eyes are clear but he is still a bit blind, you can just tell by the way he moves around and his pupils are not round. There are edges around his pupils, weird! Hopefully creech will be flying by summer, he really wants to fly. For an old
  2. Hey everyone, I bought myself a third african grey about a month ago, he's a rescue. More about him later... I'm wondering if anyone knows what the leg band PME-106 might mean? I've been trying to get information on the band number with no luck at all! It was an unclosed rounded band, not the typical square shaped ones and it was stainless steel. All i know is that he was bought from a pet store who said the grey was on auction in texas. I live in denver Colorado. Thanks for any help
  3. Hello, I too have a 2 yr old male timneh named charlie that i got at 3 months old from florida, i live in washington as well. Bought him from a bird farm from the owner dave, wonder if its the same place you got your girl? Anyway, charlie just loves my husband andy, always wants to be on or near him. Andy gives charlie a lot of time during the day but when enough is enough he puts charlie in his cage for awhile. I also have a male and a female congo. Charlie loves to dive bomb them and knock them off their perches, he likes to make sure they know he is boss in the house. The congos prefer
  4. Hey all, well it's been a while since I've written about Oliver who is now 9 years old in this thread. Boy oh boy has he come around the past couple of weeks. He looks forward to me giving him some one on one time and some very light petting. He takes showers with me every night and has to have some yogurt with spirilina mixed in with it. I can't leave the room for a second or he just has a breakdown lol. It's been very slow going with me and him but the trust is building every day. Of course Charlie, my 2 year old baby, is still jealous of him and jafar, the 23 year old girl i just rescued a
  5. Yes that is what I've been doing, just leaving her be. I ordered her an actual african grey nest box that I'm going to mount in her huge cage. Over time I'll get her used to it then maybe she'll use that. If i see she is stressing I'll back off.
  6. Hello everybody, So i cheerfully accepted my third grey about 4 months ago, her name is .... well it's jafar but thats because everyone who has had her company thought she was a he...... for 23 year's! Once she came into my life, had her vet visit and is eating things other than sunflower seeds she has been laying eggs in a drawer pretty much since I've been caring for her. Her vet visit was definitely needed! Had ber blood drawn a poop sample done an xray and she was put on antibiotics for a week. Poor girl was egg bound which is why the vet visit was a week or so from getting her. She had a
  7. Hi guys Has anyone else noticed that having parrot food on a counter or tabletop makes them want to eat more? My greys love to have a pile of food waiting for them on a flat surface, they love it! I always have there bowls full of fresh food but they really enjoy being able to move there food around. I suppose my guys love to forage. Anyone else notice this?
  8. Here's charlie and oliver, just seeing if my pictures post and sharing.
  9. Hello, im having a problem with oliver wanting to get at me just about all the time. What I mean about me saying getting me is that anytime he is on the couch and I am in my chair right next to him he goes to the arm or back of the couch as far as he can and just stares and shakes his wings while he is crouching like he wants to jump on me. I have issues with him because he is a biter to me. My partner can handle oliver any way he wants without any problems. Me on the other hand........... I can't get within a foot of him without him lunging at me. So why does oliver consistently want to be ri
  10. Nancy, yes oliver does crawl down his cage to come to me to attack me lol. He is hell bent on letting me know he wants to rule over me. I've noticed he does not like shoes..... at all! Oliver will be alright eventually I hope. For now I am just leaving him alone on his cage which is in the same room I am, he seems content with this right now.
  11. Thank you for your encouragement, I really appreciate it. I know it's going to take awhile for Oliver to get used to literally everything around him. Andy is very good with him, Andy got a good bite today on his arm as well. Andy was trying to hang a new toy in his cage but Oliver seemed very impatient and bit him as to say look out I wanna see my new toy man. I honestly think that Oliver needs some time to adjust to all these new things around him, I can't blame the poor guy. Charlie does his best to make contact with oliver but I am not letting that happen at all, one bite from oliver and Ch
  12. Well, the newest member of our flock, Oliver, has started to relentlessly attack me. He is really good with andy and Andy can do pretty much anything with oliver. I on the other hand... I used to be able to get him to step up and down on my finger but now I am really nervous about him biting me. Today I was changing his food and water and he literally flew on me and bit my neck and my arm before I had to make him go to the floor because he was so intent on not letting me go. All day today he has pursued me when he was on the floor to bite me. I made him step up on a wood dowl and he started to
  13. Hey there, welcome to the best forum you'll ever know. I pretty much just joined as well, I have a charlie also lol. My charlie is working on being 11 months old. I just added another addition to our flock last Saturday, an 8 yo congo his name is oliver, Charlie is a timneh btw. Awesome to hear that you saved this little guy, your kindness will go forever with your charlie, he will NEVER forget you. Look forward to reading more of your posts. Toys, toys, and more toys may help with feather issue. Keep him busy, as busy as you can anyway.
  14. Hi all, I do believe that he shakes his wings because he wants attention or wants to be with us. However, he has done this about 30 minutes prior to bedtime since we brought him home. It almost seems like he is not in control of this action and looks at us like he's saying I don't know why I am doing this but here I am doing this. He stops immediately after I turn the lights way down low and I leave the room. I peek in on him and he is still and sleeping on his perch. Now a new thing is happening, he likes to be on the floor for some reason in his sleep room and chews on the furniture in there
  15. Hi everyone, Just need some advice here. Charlie Parker has a new friend as of this past weekend. I rescued an 8 year old congo named Oliver, he is sweet. Anyway, just wondering if anyone else has experienced a grey sitting in one spot with wings out slightly just shaking them like he wants to go somewhere but stays put. I have him in his own room with a radio on, he hangs out on his rope perch and makes all kinds of whistlestuff but when I come in the room he makes this little quiet peep sound and does the wing shaking thing, I'm not in the room now and he is doing that peep sound. Does he w
