African greys looking for a home [Jun. 15th, 2008|05:11 pm]


I don't know if any of you are in the central NC area and looking for Congo African Greys, but My husband and I just saw a beautiful little pair for sale on the way out of my father-in-laws neighborhood. I spotted the cage for sale from the road and went to ask about it for our CAG and then realized there were two birds in it. It is a male and female pair ages 7 and 5. The male is ready to mate, but the female seems less interested so the male has plucked his neck some in the front. They are very friendly and speak both English and Spanish.

The couple who owns them is moving to Missouri and have to leave at 3am tomorrow morning. They are asking $1800 for the cage and both birds, but are negotiable because of the situation.

I would love to have them, but money is tight and we also feel like our current CAG is a bit of a lone bird so I don't know how she'd do with two new ones moving in on her. They even offered to sale me the male separately to mate with mine since their female hasn't been interested in his advances, but again, not sure how that would go with our current one.

Anyway, let me know if anyone in this area is interested and I can give you more info. It would be great if they could find a home here and not have to make the long move.

I know, right? Maybe they could teach me Spanish. Ours spoke a lot of sailor as well when we first got her. Being woken up to her yelling "God D@mn BIRD!" the first morning we had her made us wonder what we were in for. It's sad her previous owners would have said that to her enough for her to pick up on it though. She's phased out of her naughty words since we never encouraged them.

Hmm, mine tells our cockatoo to BE QUIET when he screams.

Our cockatoo screams a lot. Ear-piercingly. Adorable, yes, but he's scared off most visitors by now, lol.
