Thank you for adding me to this forum. I am rescuing an African grey and he will arrive tomorrow. I have never owned a parrot but  am very excited in learning and caring for one. The parrot was a friends who unfortunately now need 24 hour care. The home he is in would take the parrot but he bites so would not be safe for other people. I am open and grateful for any advice/information that people share with me xx

Hi Angela

Welcome to the site and well done for taking the grey on they truly are wonderful creatures and can provide you with so much fun and love, you mention that he bites this could be out of fear and the move for him is quite a big event so once you've got him home just take things slowly with him don't try and rush things because that could set him even further back just start things very gradual offer him a treat etc so as he will get to understand your not going to hurt him, it is also a possibility to keep in mind that it could be that you won't be able to handle him but this won't change things to much, Mandi on here is very experienced and she as a couple of greys she can't handle but there is nothing she doesn't do for em, there are some important things you need and my apologies if you already have them but an avian lamp is crucial for there well being, toys these don't have to be expensive as its most likely he will destroy them also what diet is he currently on most of us on here feed our birds fresh veg with occasional fruit and leave pellets available in the cage all day. Will he be able to have time out the cage? Going back to diet there is a great section on the forum that has loads of ideas you can get from, also once he has settled we love to see pics of the birds. Most of us get our bits from www.scarlettsparrotsessentials.co.uk Scarlett is also a member on here and will be willing to give any advice you may need as will we all, so please any questions you may have don't hesitate to ask and someone will always help. Hope to hear from you soon please let us know how things are going.
