Congo African Grey for Sale

Congo African Grey for Sale,the African Grey Congo Parrot is one good looking parrot, and is also said to be one the smartest birds. The African Greys can learn 200 or more words and all kinds of tricks. They also frequently imitate the sounds of their environment, including people.

The African grey would ring the phone “ring-ring” and the Blue-fronted amazon would answer with a very cordial “Hello”.

Congo African Greys have a gentle nature over all. Their demeanor, along with the ability to talk and mimics sounds have made them popular pets. Yet keeping them as a pet companion is challenging, and not for everyone. These are long-lived, highly intelligent birds that need a great deal of stimulation to keep from becoming bored.

Congo African grey parrot care and feeding

The African Grey Parrots eats seeds, nuts, fruits, and leafy vegetation. These birds will climb around the tree, rather than flying and picking up food and holding it with a foot while eating. 

Foods for your pet bird will include a ready made large hookbill seed mix enriched with vitamins. Their dietary requirements include sources of calcium and Vitamin A. A cuttle bone or a calcium block is a good source of calcium.

Congo African Greys should not be fed a diet that is high in fat and protein. Fresh vegetables you can offer include mustard greens, green peas, cucumber, young dandelion greens, sweet corn, beet greens, carrots, broccoli, unsprayed lettuce, chickweed, dandelions, eggplant, green peppers, sorrel, spinach leaves, tomatoes and zucchini.
Avocado and chocolate are considered toxic for birds and sugar and salt should be avoided. Most parrots enjoy and occasional shower or bath. 

 

Social Behaviors

Because of their social nature and their intelligence, their humans become quite devoted to these feathered creatures. Greys in turn love their humans and also get along quite well with other birds in the home. However, they can sometimes become a “one person” bird, often bonding with a person of the opposite sex.

Congo African Greys don’t really start speaking until they are around 2 – 3 years old. As you interact with them, they will talk and associate words with meanings.

Although they can talk and mimic, they are neither overly noisy nor tend to engage in loud shrieking calls like some of the other vocal parrots.

Despite its wonderful attributes, an African Grey Parrot is not for everyone. They are frequently a one-person bird and will tolerate other members of the household. If there is a great deal of commotion, they will growl or hide.

They need a lot of stimulating toys, 3 to 5 at a time works well, and rotated out with other toys on a regular basis. African Greys are notorious for plucking their feathers if they do not receive enough active stimulation, or enough desired attention from their human.

Furthermore, in captivity, the African Grey Parrot is well known for its ability to mimic human voices. A recording of the parrots in Zaire revealed that they emulated nine different birds and one type of bat in the wild. There is some indication that they can attain a vocabulary of more than 500 words, but no evidence that they understand what they are saying.
