My favorite, My African Grey Parrot


  • mindyabinessmindyabiness Posts: 8,156 Admiral
    He looks to be a fine, healthy one, although I know nothing of keeping a parrot.

    I have a lot of respect for anything with a can opener on its' face. I would prefer to have a strong cage between myself and anything able to fly (or the potential to) and capable of cracking a brazil nut with it's mouth.
    I guess I have a healthy fear of parrots and I'm not afraid to admit it.
    Does he speak or sing?
    Is his name Jim? Or is that yours.
    Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon... No matter how good you are, the bird is going to crap on the board and strut around like it won anyway.

    The bird's name is "Button", an 8 year old female that I raised from 2 weeks old. Spoon fed her a cereal mixture 3 time a day until she was over a year old. I'm her Daddy.
    She has an extensive vocabulary, yells "Hello" when she hears me come in the house and somehow can sense when I'm leaving. She says "By By"
    Teases my dog by saying "What are you doing, Molly". "Do you want to go out??"
    A gentle and loving pet, but very shy with strangers.
    Oh, my name's Jim.
    By By!
