And we also breed pugs.....

Here's a shot of a recent little boy.




And here's what they become. Want one?

CAG - Alex

B&G - Max

We may be getting another addition to the family. Some friends of ours are going to be moving, and they may not be able to take their Ubrella Cockatoo with them, so we volunteered to take her in if they can't..... she's an absolute lover with everyone, so I won't mind...

Umbrella cockatoos are amazing! That would be awesome.
Both your birds are lovely.
Did you name the grey after Alex the famous talker and subject of a couple books, or is that just coincidence?

That was coincidence... We didn't know the name of Dr. Pepperberg's bird until after we named ours. But now I'm glad we did, since her bird passed away just a few years ago....
CAG's are smart as all get-out, and they can mimic anything. If we're sitting out on the back deck, she'll imitate the phone ringing just to get someone to come back into the house, and will then laugh at you. She'll call & whistle for the dog's to go outside..... luckily they picked up on that trick. Anyone who says humans are the only ones with intelligent reasoning have never lived with an African Grey.

Have you read her book? I ma thinking about buy it. I have seen some TV specials on her and Alex and it was AMAZING how he could put words together and understand the meaning.
I would love an African grey. But, I live in tiny town, so there are not many birds readily available. Someday, I would like to adopt one though.

We have both The Alex Studies and Alex & Me..... Very informative books.

Be careful if you adopt one... CAG's typically bond to one person as they mature (we finished hand feeding ours), and if they go to a different home as an adult, they can be very difficult to work with..... i.e.- have lots of bandages on hand, as you will likely take many bites in the process. It can definitely be done, but an immense amount of patience is required.

Thanks. I do know that they tend to not re-home well sometimes. I know lots of parrots tend to pick one gender or another as a preference, so I figured it would be easiet to make sure I found one that likes women. Thanks for the advice though! I will make sure I have lots of bandages if I am ever able to get one. But, I want to a bit more large bird experience before I try adopting one. Lots of bird adoption agencies won't let you adopt one without previous parrot experience. Thats probably a good idea on their part.
