I agree... go back and see how he/she reacts... Let your mate go up to him/her 1st and see what happens...

I my Abby came from a great breeder but she was only use to having 3 people handle her... she is just now getting friendly with others.

Plus she is adapting to the 11 year Grey I took in about 2 months ago..

Good Luck and keep us posted.

Re: Does this mean this parrot picked me

OK I am a breeder and the # 1 thing is the bird picked u!!!! Go back and try it again, if the bird still loves u, buy the bird!!!! Even if u find a breeder that new baby might not pick u!!! Ask questions from the store, did the bird see a vet, age, and see if they have proof or paper work to back it. If u r happy with the store BUY THE BIRD!!!! lol it is very hard to find that bond so don't pass on it!!! Good luck!!!

Re: Does this mean this parrot picked me

I had a similar experience with a CAG in a local pet store, but sadly, I couldn't afford the $1800 they were asking for him. If you have the resources, I'd say that you should definitely be bringing that CAG home. You have been chosen.

Re: Does this mean this parrot picked me

You have been chosen my friend you should buy the bird.

Pros

The bird is probely socialized well
Is used to other parrots
He probely has a health guaranteed receipt or something

cons

He could have a disease from the other parrots,other animals in the shop

He might be not as brave or confident for humans( in your case he is because he sa on your hand and LOVES you)


In conclusion GET THE BIRD . It could be destiney. There's not much of a difference between a reliable petshop or breeder bird

Re: Does this mean this parrot picked me

Many thanks guys.....

ok went back to the shop on sunday and the same bird was there was asleep i got my partner to walk over and talk to him bird didnt move i went over and said hello got up and come over to me. With the cash in my pocket i went up to the bloke who owns the shop... this is what happend next

ME: "hello mate i would like to buy this bird"
Shop Keeper " sorry mate that one is sold"

i cried i should of gone with my gut and got it the first time i went in there i was so upset.. but i did ask the bloke about all the questions people have put on here and he wasnt to sure on a few of them so i was a bit worried about that. i just hope i havent missed my once in a life time chance.

again many thanks to the poeple of this forum you are all aces in my book.

Re: Does this mean this parrot picked me

Go back to the shop (or call) and leave your name and address to the new buyer.
Perhaps they change their mind when they see/heard of the bond you have with the bird already. Or if they later on not can have the parrot left for some reason.

Re: Does this mean this parrot picked me

it sounds like he has chosen you! Touching story! What kind of grey. Timneh or congo. Congos have bright red tails and timnehs have either a black or dark maroon tail feathers. Also dont worry about getting them from a pet shop. I got one of my dogs from a pet store and it is amazing. Both of my parrots are from stores. Boo my conure is from petsmart.... ik bad idea but he was well socialized and is super healthy and my african grey is from an exotic pet store that sold exotic birds, parrots, exoticrodents, exotic reptiles and exotic fish. They hand fed and raised there birds. I saw the baby cockateils and macaws in separate encubators all happy and healthy and they were really healthy. T hey also were super socialized. They are always vet checked andit was a very clean envoirment. Have fun with your new bird! They will not only touch your heart but they willl change you and make you the happiest person alive.
