Secondhand Birds
« on: January 29, 2014, 08:50:29 PM »

Hi All,
Please be aware when purchasing an African Grey from other people, as some of ou will be aware I purchased a beautiful Grey called Kiki from a couple in Somerset.
I should of taken the bird to a vet the day i got him but trusted what they told me.
from day one Kiki would only eat Baby Formula and nothing else and the stools smelt very badly. I tried to do research on the internet but it became very confusing. My advise to anyone buying a grey from someone you do not know is to ask for their vets phone number or get a vets check up before you pay for it. Kiki was rushed to the vets last night at 9pm and passed away at 12pm today the vets told me she had a very bad infection in her crop and stomach area which looked as if it had been brewing for a few weeks as the infection had taken hold of nearly all Kiki's stomach. If you bird shows any signs of a different behaviour please do what Pat has suggested and go straight to your vets. I would like to thank everyone on this forum for their help and support as I m feeling very low at the moment and disgusted with the people that sold me Kiki knowing that she was very ill. I have been trying to contact them for over a week now but they will not return my calls, i wonder why?
I hope all your baby's do very well and I will be back as I will be looking for a new baby from a breeder in the next few months, once i'm feeling a bit better about the loss of my Kiki.

Hi ramm chick, sorry to hear of your loss, 😪 I don't know who your breeder was but I'm sort of from your end of the world (portishead, Bristol) & we bought our baby in 2008 from a breeder just outside of Salisbury,  Wilshire, John Brehm, he is listed under parrot breeders n found him very good. He show us the parents & around his other birds, & has been doing this for years, in fact he's either a doctor or professor can't remember which, I do have his email if you want it. Just ask me or look on the internet.
Such a sad time for you, they re your little baby X
