We used to have a blue and gold macaw just like in the picture. Unfortunately, due to work commitments, we had to let it go as it required so much time. It kept plucking its feathers when bored so it's better off with someone who can treat it like a baby.
I have had my parrots for twenty years. I'm sure that they will out live me. I just worry about who will take care of them if something does happen to me, because they get really attached to their owner's.
i have a male eclectus i adopted from a home whom did not take care of him,so it has been up to me to get him healthy which is a hard task and cost lots of money.he may be the ugliest,cutest bird i ever owned.he is smart and funny and talks constant and reacts and answers when i talk to him.he is sometimes like having a toddler around he is sneaky and loves to steal food on the table.but i find everything he does so funny he just lights up my day
About a month ago, I rescued a Sun Conure. I don't know anything about his/her past because the owner passed away. I've got all sorts of questions and would love to chat with anyone who has knowledge of these birds
I have 2 blue and gold parrots and they bond with certain ppl. My female I cant touch at all cause she loves my boyfriend and tries to chase me away when I get to close. Elize as for your african grey I think he/she might need more toys to play with to keep him/her occupied, Sometimes they stress out if they cannot be a part of the family, try moving him to where he/she can watch tv with you, try giving him more attention, I think that might help with your problem hopefully
