Re: Meet my new baby, Davy Jones!

He loves flying! A good 30% of the time he decides to land on my head I got him a flight harness and he lets me put it on him no problem. Today he started sitting by the window and looking out. Whenever a car drives by he fluffs up and growls.

OMG he is obsessed with them! Amazing recommendation, thanks!

One suggestion Ill make is never, ever sleep with your bird , they are easily hurt or worse if you dose off and move the wrong way.
Of course! I won't do anything to risk hurting my baby.

Re: Meet my new baby, Davy Jones!

Davy is 102 days old!

He can now say:

I love you
Hello
Outside
What ya doing?
Oo-oo-aw-aw
Pine nut
Food
Come here

Not super clear of course. He has said I love you perfectly a few times but he forgets how between sessions a lot. The other words we can understand but other people probably couldn't. He started talking like crazy the past few days when he picked up all these new words, but he is still very amateur on them and will only repeat them right after you (he will randomly say oo--oo--aw--aw throughout the day and I love you, his two best phrases).

He knows step up but won't do it most of the time unless you have a treat. He usually flies to me on command.

I bought this big lesson plan that supposed to teach baby's how to speak and read English. It's really cool because it comes with several songs designed to teach them how to talk. Then there are flash cards, books, etc. It hasn't come in the mail yet but I'm really excited to try it on him.

African Greys, are very stubborn birds (and clumsy!), they will do things when they want to and only if they want to..... unless of course you have a treat


I dont usually give Enzo treats unless its my meal time and Enzo likes what I have and its safe for her. Because of this I accept the fact that I have to respect her when she desnt want t do something. I quite like this tbh as I know Enzo has a say in things, unless of course she has to do something....going back in her cage if im going out etc.


Its a learning curve I suppose, a very very enjoyable one.

Re: Meet my new baby, Davy Jones!

Davy Jones is very cute. I used to have my baby red-bellied parrots watch the Baby Einstein videos.

Re: Meet my new baby, Davy Jones!

Carefully vet the videos you show to Davy, you don't want him picking up bad habits from parrots on screen, things like screaming or cursing. And he very well could do that - Salty learns a lot of words and songs from watching youtube videos. He usually introduces him self, and asks 'Are you a bird? A pretty bird?'. Try looking at videos with one specific type of parrot, you might find Davy likes only them - Salty loves videos with Indian Ringnecks and learns fastest from them. Oddly enough, videos of Amazons only get him excited and African Greys leave him flat and he will wander away.
