African Grey’s are one of the most popular Parrot species we keep as companion Parrots, so it’s only right that we celebrate these wonderful birds with their own special day.
We’re going to be honoring African Grey Parrots on October 12th so use the #African Grey Day to get involved on social media. Once again we are working with Feathered Friends too.
Facts about African Grey Parrots
Did you know that although Greys are excellent mimics, they rarely speak their first word before the age of 10 months?
They are also more sensitive to their environment than other Parrots, so you need to be sure they live with the right temperature and take good care of their plumage.
African Grey’s need plenty of calcium in their diet. Choose from a huge variety of foods, many of which provide your Grey with this important mineral, in the form of complete food, treats, seed and breeding/hand feeding food. .
African Grey’s are intelligent and active birds, so when buying them a new cage purchase the biggest one you can afford so they have lots of room to play and exercise. We have roomy cages for you to choose from, in a play top, open top or solid top style, along with travel cages.
Clever Grey’s require a big choice of toys to occupy their time and prevent birdie boredom. Foraging toys help them replicate their natural wild behavior, but there are many other styles to choose from too, like cardboard and paper toys and bells and musical toys. .
For even more for your Grey, look at our accessories for African Grey’s. There are lights and so your Grey can receive regular amounts of sunlight and darkness, air purifiers to keep the space around your Grey lovely and clean and a whole lot more.
Finally there are African Grey supplements that keep your Grey looking and feeling healthy and support them when they become unwell.
