Hello everyone, my name is Kay, several months ago our dear friend died and we inherited his best friend Jasper, Jasper is a 15 year old African grey, at first I just wanted to respect our dear friend wishes, but after several weeks I fell head over heels in love with Jasper,

I am completely new to caring for a parrot, although we are animal lovers and have two dogs, Megan (Newfoundland) Harry (lurcher x)
A rescued canary called Tweety pie and a rescued cockatiel called Louie. a very lucky Turkey called Penny and some ex battery chickens.

This is a great forum with so much information, which of course I really need.

We have known Jasper since our friend got him when he was only a few months old, and my hubby always helped our friend with Jaspers nails etc.

So when we first brought Jasper home, Jasper went straight to my hubby, I was quite sad because I didn't think I stood a chance of being his friend, then after a couple of weeks Jasper came and sat on my shoulder, I was delighted

Jasper and I have become good friends, the only problem is now Jasper has become very aggressive with my hubby, who is trying to be friends, Jasper has bitten him quite bad for no apparent reason.

Now Jasper is settling in, he has been quite naughty, chewing on furniture and he even broke the TV just before Christmas

Here is my gorgeous little boy
(I was going to post his picture, but first I need to learn how to  :-[ )

So good to hear that update. Youíre doing everything right, it will just take time. Get lots of the nail trimming perches, avoid bright coloured ones as iíve found mine never got used to them. Once sheís using them her beak and nails will look after themselves. I never have to trim my greys.

The site itís too great to navigate, I agree!

Tried sending pics but can't seem to? Find it even difficult navigating the forum if I'm honest. I am so pleased with how things have worked out and I am so glad I kept them separate. I don't think I will have any luck at handling her as she is terrified of coming out. Her previous owner said she hasn't been out since she landed on the cooker and got badly burnt. Her poor little feet and legs are really red and she must have been in agony. She has bonded with hubby and every time he approaches or passes, she bobs up and down dancing. He feeds her by hand and she can't seem to get enough of him as will climb around the cage to follow him. Strange as she did not like her previous owners husband? I thought she would be more for me? I need to find someone near me who is conversant with Greys for advice on both birds beaks and nails and who might give me advice on everything as all I know is what I have googled and read. She hates the spray bottle - screams, shrieks, squawks and flaps manically. I have put a bird bath up but it could take time for her to use it - if ever. Apparently she is used to being sprayed? Her cage has never been covered as previous owner says she  made holes in cover when a baby, but we cover them both at night and she appears to like it - as expected her to flap but has taken it in her stride. Plus I moved them both into the conservatory attached to the kitchen where most household activity happens and she would  need to be covered up in there at night. I will move them back into the living room in a few days so she gets accustomed to it - although they seem to prefer the conservatory and she has bonded with my 10 month Great Dane since being in there  - as he is in and out. He is obsessed with her and she has no fear of him. I can't leave him alone with her as am afraid he might push cage over although it is extra heavy as hubby had a new tray made for it and I can hardly pull it out. Can't believe how she adapted to new cage and different textured perches from day one. Hubby bought her a pedicure swing a week ago and she hasn't been near it as yet. She refuses to eat the Harrisons bird food even though I have reduced her sunflower seeds.  But on the whole I could not have wished for a better transition.

Have introduced parrots and I can not believe how quickly the new girlie has adapted to our home. Third day today and you'd have thought she had been here in her new cage for her entire 22 years. Will try and send a pic. Thanks guys your advice was spot on.
