Update on getting Baby Grey!
 
Hello.

I am very excited to share that the breeder that was my #1 choice has 6 babies right now. They are currently in the nest being cared for by their parents (so no pictures, yet).

I am very excited to have found this out, and will get the contract for reserving one of the babies by email soon.

As soon as I get pictures of the babies (although I will only be purchasing one) I will post them here, especially when it is clear which one will be mine.


I am also trying out the Poll feature, as I am not sure of what name is better:
Andy or Tag

Let me know which one you think sounds better! Keep in mind that my Jardines name is Sammy.

I'm getting a Congo, which is why Tag is such a funny name.

I am still on the fence but part of why I like Andy is that it sounds pretty good with Sammy. I still have a few months to think about it, though.

Tag is what we Timneh African Grey the other is Cag, Congo African Grey, so Tag seems kinda confusing for a grey parrot name, in my book anyway...

One of my ex-neighbours got a puppy every year for 3 years in a row (yes, he was nuts, collected all the colourvariations of a breed just for fun) and he never got them to listen to him, because he gave them names that sounded (vowelwise) the same.
And of course those are the ones that get heard when you call for them...al we ever heard was "oooooooo-eh"

Finally he got his arse kicked by a vet for confusing his dogs that way.
(And changed their names -> happy dogs)

.

Of course... parrots are a lot brighter than dogs.


(If it were up to me I would not have named my parrots the way they are either. Also too close together, so I always have to take special care. I have an a-(p)-eeee and an aaaaaaa-(p)-eeee.)

=


LOL Tag for a CAG is indeed funny- I almost missed it because in general we just call the TAGs Timneys here, african greys are always CAGs (unless you discuss species- we know they are both greys from africa of course)

Andy, deffo.

Don't choose your Fid, allow your Fid to choose you.

Andy Holmes is my real name btw
