NL= the Netherlands, Europe
Sunny a female B&G macaw;
Japie (m) & Appie (f), both are congo african grey;
All are rescues- had to leave their previous homes for 'reasons', are still in contact with them :)
Japie finally "got" the treatball (well actually its one of those cat-snack-balls).
This morning he was rolling it around the bottom of the cage and happily snacking away.
(It's been there for 3 months on and off and all of a sudden ...he noticed it)

Greys are infuriating like this: ignore something for ages and then just take to it like it's always been there...

Deductive reasoning in parrots? They don't even to test something / the trial and error you would expect/- they just figure it all out in their tiny heads?!?!

I saw this thread and thought it would be funny to post some of the antics of our TAGs. Tilly and Elliot came from the same home, not and girl but not a mates pair but very bonded. Tilly likes Elliot as long as Ellliot stays on Elliott's cage. Tilly vocabulary is massive,it far surpasses anything our CAG can do. The TAGs love to reenact little scenes that took place in their last home. Tilly will make a loud door knocking sound, El then responds with the most obnoxious "Whaaaaaat!!!!" you could ever imagine . Tilly than lets loose with a full blown woman screaming voice, real barn burner, it was some argument they heard. There were teenagers in the last home,we think that had something to do with it. They do other scenes ,but with a massive amount of swearing involved. We are just so amazed with how good they work together to perform it lol.
