Hi to Everybody from me and Lucy


Recommended Posts

The latest newbie here, but not to having an African Grey, although I am to the mechanics of forums, so if this post ends up in the wrong category, apologies.   Lucy is 15 this year, and we got her when she was just about 3 months.  We had her tested immediately by the specialist bird vet for beak and feather (something I would strongly recommend as apparently there is no cure, and it's heartbreaking to get attached and know there is no future).  At the same time you could have the sex determined with the same blood sample, so we know for sure she's a girl bird.  She loves me, hates my husband.  Has to be watched like a hawk when out of the cage, or another piece of  skirting board has to be replaced!   And she is sneaky.  Pretends she is doing one thing, innocently looking around, until she thinks she is not being watched then bingo, up to no good.  Anyway, look forward to contributing in due course. Angie.  I wont' say 'mum', because I think from her perspective I am not a parent, but her mate.

Hello and welcome to you and Lucy! I know what you mean about being the "mate." A little unnerving, but what can you do? Timber gets along OK with the husband, but I'm the favored one. Looking forward to hearing from you and seeing some pics of Lucy. It sounds like she's full of personality, as most greys are :)

Welcome to the forums! Sorry, I saw this post a while back but for some reason didn't respond at the time... but better late than never I guess! :)

I look forward to hearing more about your grey adventures with Lucy!

To Luvparrots.  I will post more pics later, but I did give my experience about dogs and avians with pictures and comments to the person who was concerned about bringing a grey into a home with an existing terrier type pooch.  At one point we had two dogs (lab and ridgeback) a guinea fowl and a duck, then later the guinea fowl and Lucy.   Under the right conditions a half kilo parrot can totally dominate a 53Kg Ridgeback and an overweight labbie.
