Re: We are home with our wonderful girl

We are all enjoying your thread here. It is a happy one to read. I have seen people make a spot for their birds in the kitchen so they can eat as you prepare food. I suggest you look up avigl0 at MSBS. I keep trying to give you the link but it will not work today for some reason. red palm oil is so so good for their feather growth.

I just put a vid up of Rosie and you can see how much she enjoys singing and whistling,



AGL4 - Avitech Aviglo Red Palm Oil 4 OZ
AviGlo premium palm oil is a certified organic red oil obtained by cold pressing the fruit of the dende palm. It provides a number of essential fatty acids including omega 3 and omega 6. Palm oil is familiar to birds in the wild as many use palm fruit as a large part of their diet. Macaws and Cockatoos as well as African Greys particularly benefit from eating AviGlo palm oil. AviGlo palm oil helps put sheen into dull feathers and improves dry flaky skin and feet. It's great for all birds, but especially greys, macaws and cockatoos

Re: We are home with our wonderful girl

Thanks, Spiritbird! I have adblock on this device so I couldn't remember the name of the forum sponsering store. I had heard about that and I will order some and probably a few other things.

We are looking up how to make an easily movable T-perch. Perhaps two, one that can be set on a table top and another that stands on the floor. Although she is so happy on shoulders or on arms it's an ok temporary situation for now until we can get one. She has ignored the special pedicure swing I paid $23 for! I can't get it higher so I may move some of the other perches down.

She's been doing great. She definitely prefers me to hubby so he's been trying to give her food bits and spend a lot of time holding her. She's now let the three older kids hold her and been fine. It just is astounding to me how calm and gentle she is. She has a low growl she uses when she is uncomfortable. She also seems to grunt when she wants something, like when she looks like she wants me to pick her up or wants me to give her scritches. Is that normal grey behaviour? DH said he had read they only grunt when they are bothered/nervous. She has a feather shaft that's bugging her on her head so we had a good scritch session. She loves being touched all over her head and on her cheeks, She loved having her cere rubbed but then she started bobbing her head around-is that too stimulating for her? She also gives kisses. She's a sweetheart and so cuddly.
She seems fine with us taking her around the house, she even has perched happily on the shower curtain for a couple of showers and preened.
And yeah-still wants to eat everything. Today she tried spinach, celery, bagal, wheat bread, and a few other things. She wasn't very into a chicken bone we gave her.
