Re: New owner of African grey - looking for help

I adopted an African Grey 6 years ago. They are ridiculously smart and definitely a bird that demands respect. It's been a long road for her and I, but certainly rewarding.

When I adopted my Dany...

Re: Maybe I should just let him hate me?

All the methods I have tried with him I tried for at least 6 months to a year before moving on to a different method.

Re: Baby food and crushed pellets?

Then all you had to say was you didn't think baby food would be good. I was simply searching for advice, a simple yay or nay and other ideas, not to be shamed like I'm slowly torturing my bird over...

Re: Baby food and crushed pellets?

Re: Baby food and crushed pellets?

Re: My dilemma with this wrought iron cage

I believe they said like 250 for it to be sandblasted, but they had mentioned that pick up and drop off was another charge as well, so it's just still too much for me to pay at the moment. I figured...

My dilemma with this wrought iron cage

Re: I'm starting to be convinced my conure just hates my guts...
