ahh it's almost time for archimedes to come home. he's (or she still waiting for test) is 12 weeks old (hatch date was 11/10/11) Earlier this week he was moved from the aquarium to an actual cage. He's starting to use his wings a couple of times, but no takeoffs yet. I told my breeder that I didn't want him clipped PERIOD and he said that he won't clip archimedes which I'm really happy about. Archimedes still isn't eating big bird foods yet... but I have seen him munch on some big bird food, though it's more tasting rather than eating. Ahh I'm just ready to have my baby home...

 

edited to add: forgot to ask... right now Archimedes is squeaking all the time, it sounds like a contact call, but all baby voice like... at what age do the baby squeaks disappear and the big bird sounds appear? (i love the little squeaks so i'll be sad once their gone)

I know you are anxious to have your baby home but let him stay at the breeders until he is fully weaned and eating foods easily, some greys take longer to wean and you don't want any setbacks if you happen to bring him home too early, your breeder should know when he/she is ready but be sure to keep us informed and share any pics you get with us.

I think he's still on 2 feedings a day, though I'm not sure, all I know is he's just nibbling on his food. When I was there on friday I gave Archimedes a sunflower seed thats mixed in with his food, and he took it and knew how to de-shell it, which is a good sign, though I'm pretty sure only 1 crumb was actually eaten. When Archimedes is home, he'll be fed TOPS and veg mash, though I am thinking of mixing TOPS with harrisons, but idk yet... TOPS isn't sold near us, so I'd have to order it online, but I figured if I mix it with Harrisons (also harrisons offers things tops doesn't) that if I were to run out of one, the other one won't shock his digestive system as much.
