African grey eating pinkie mice??

Got your attention? I was window shopping craigslist, dude that swears he isn't a scam claims to have a two year old grey, says it's had dewclaws removed, eating pinkies, shots up to date, and about 7 other things that don't apply to birds. I hope he really doesn't have a bird at all. In very vulgar emails I was called every name in the book, so I called him out. I can give you guys info about the ad if you'd like to help flag him away, he posts in every state I've looked in, every city as well. Regardless I thought I'd share, unless I'm missing something here, and they do get pinkies? 😂😂😂😂

Re: African grey eating pinkie mice??

Dewclaws removed?;?!?!? Shots?;?!?
Let alone pinkie eating!! They ((might???)) Very very early eat some sort of protein in the wild population.... Never heard of a captive parrot getting anything more thsn the rare bite of well cooked chicken

Re: African grey eating pinkie mice??

Parrots inthe wild will occasionally eay meay ( worms bugs ) and my Salty will eat chicken once in a while, but whole pinky mice? Hmmm. Fake news IMHO.

That photo has been floating around since 2014! 100% scam!
The wording is typical off shore scammers!
