  1. The reason I ask is because he really, and I mean REALLY, likes to tell me how hes doing, when he wants to go for some exercise, get-up, get pet, go on my shoulder, from combined body language and vast variety of sound. I believe him to be a talker, able to understand many phrases I say to him, but not yet able to respond due to the difficulty of human-based language. Also -- Yes, I am patient, he can take as long as he wants, I just want him to be happy and feel he can connect with me on an even greater level than now. I was told that most African Greys who are talkers speak their first word
  2. Hello all, My African grey is my first parrot and proxied son whom I love to death and would do anything for. He is one year and almost three months old. He does not speak a lick of English or any other human-based language that I have tried to teach him. I understand that some Parrots will simply never talk and while I admit, I did not know that when I purchased him, I have no regrets and I love him no matter what. The question I have is, how do parrots learn pronunciation? Here is what he knows: 1. When he is okay, or just saying hello, instead of saying Heh-low, hey go
  3. Yes, and to make sure no one worries, it kind of just went away with time. Every now and then he does do it HOWEVER, I myself have a minor form of Tourretes syndrome (just called Tic syndrome) where I have a head tic and the running theory is he did it originally to copy me.
  4. As of today he is now ccurrently eating this https://www.amazon.com/Tropican-Performance-Parrot-Sticks-20-Pound/dp/B0017JBX4U/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1550345325&sr=8-4-fkmr0&keywords=tropican+parrot+pellets which is a "Tropican High Performance Parrot Sticks, Enriched with Vitamins and Minerals for Birds Needing Extra Nutrition, 20 lb Bag. Back when i took him the the vet last month the vet said his cholesterol was a tiny bit high and that I should cut on the sweets but I am not really giving him any any sweets. Another question regarding African Grey Care...How mu
  5. There are not mites, he has had a full physical when i took him to the vet as soon as i realized this was a potential problem. The food he ate was this
  6. Yes, he appears to be doing it in "fits" wherein he will twitch often for fifteen minutes or so and then not do it for several hours. Here is the most recent video taken this morning. Could it be his diet is not good enough? I feed him 3 times a day with his pellets. IMG_2274.MOV IMG_2274.MOV IMG_2274.MOV
  7. Hello all, I have an African Grey (Huginn) who is now 9 months old. Last month he started twitching his head the same way a human might if they have water in their ear. I was concerned he might have some kind of ear infection so I took him to the vet and they wanted to charge me 1,000 for bloodwork of every type. I was not sure it was a serious issue and I do not have Pet insurance yet so instead I got some bloodwork on his white blood cell count and a nasal cleanse treatment for him. The results were that his white blood cell count was just a little bit (emphasis on the little bit) high
  8. I have an African Grey, Huginn, who is is absolutely adorable but was just born in May, doesn't talk so I can't communicate with him and the few things he recognizes is when I call his name and "no". I wanted to know what you guys did during these early stages in training, and at what age. Thank you :D
