Getting my african grey
« on: June 19, 2018, 03:02:42 PM »

Hey,
(Iím from Norway, sorry if my English is bad)
Iím getting an african grey very soon. I did a lot of research before talking with someone who had african grey babies, so Iím ready.
Two days ago the woman Iím getting my parrot from sent me a message and told me that all of them are females. I donít care if it was a boy or girl, Iím just happy i got one and iím ready to be the owner of the parrot, but i have a question.
Iíve seen some post about african grey males being aggressive to male owners and african grey females being aggressive to female owners. Then I saw a post that it was just a myth, and that most of the african grey behavior is like they get more close to one person, but it doesnít matter if itís a man or a woman, and that the person they get close to is the person that uses more time with the parrot and cares for the parrot the most.
I also asked the woman iím buying from and she said that they bond to the person that cares for them the most. Her african grey is a female and only likes to be around her.
How is it with your african greys?

It literally depends on who the grey chooses, it does tend to be the one who is with them/feeds & cares for them etc but itís not a given.

Having said that iíve had a male & female & both love me, iím the one who looks after them so thank goodness

Also try to get them used to as many things/food/people as possible, it can help make them less nervy and better with people. They do tend to bond with one person only though, with some exceptions of course

You are going to have lots of fun!

We have had our Grey since she was 4 Months old, and KIKI comes to me when I am home, and when I am away working she flies to my wife when she is out, of the cage for a fuss.

Since having Xavier, i've compared him to Jasper who is female and Xavier is definately more bitey, not aggressive as such but he will bite at random, he is louder too, and acts very differently compared to Jasper, don't get me wrong Jasper will bite but not deliberately, but alot of the time she is gentle and calm x
Take your time getting to know your little one when she arrives, bet you're so excited. Congratulations  :flowers:
