Meet Kira! Our African Grey foster! Just got her.

Here are some pictures of her. I was told she was a CAG but she is SO SMALL.... She is plucking while here, little down feathers, and she has only been here for an hour. Poor thing.

Re: Meet Kira! Our African Grey foster! Just got her.

She looks so skinny; how much does she weigh?

The Ghana, or West African Grey is smaller and darker than the CAG, about 10 inches from beak to tail, and 350-400 gm.

The CAG is about 12 inches long, and 450-500 gm. The male has a flatter head and usually darker than the female.

Re: Meet Kira! Our African Grey foster! Just got her.

Well drats I can't view the pics! Poor little one is probably very scared and stressed, hence the plucking. Maybe cover 1/4-1/2 of her cage to see if this will help her feel more secure. Takes thing slow. Greys are so sensitive. Thanks for fostering her. I also foster for area rescues.

Re: Meet Kira! Our African Grey foster! Just got her.

I'm not an expert, I'm not sure what type of grey she is at this point. She is seriously so small. I will take another picture and put something up to her so you can see. And yes, I feel she might be thin too. She was eating zupreem fruit blend. I put her in her cage and left the door open and sat near, and climbed out and extended her foot towards me to step up. She is scared though for sure. Right now she is half covered and hopefully sleeping in our bedroom away from the other girls.

Aww grey! I wonder why you can't view the pictures. I wish I knew another way to show you! And thank you for fostering as well, it's so rewarding, isn't it?

Re: Meet Kira! Our African Grey foster! Just got her.

I just tried to copy the first pic of Kira, and couldn't do it. Looks to be a secure site, which may lock some out. It's really not that tough to start your own album on this site, by going to USER CP and fiddling around.

Re: Meet Kira! Our African Grey foster! Just got her.

Great! Now to put a pic on a post:
Right click on pic.
Copy Image Location
Go to post and hit the symbol that says Insert Image. Do ctrl V.

I keep a separate window open on my album to make it easier to go between album and post.
