BUY CONGO AFRICAN GREY FOR SALE
Nature of our Congo African grey for saleCongo African Greys have a gentle nature overall. Their demeanor, along with the ability to talk and mimic sounds have made them popular pets. Yet keeping them as a pet companion is challenging, and not for everyone. These are long-lived, highly intelligent birds that need a great deal of stimulation to keep from becoming bored. Greys are often described as having the intelligence of a five-year-old and the temperament of a two-year-old. I truly believe they are 3-year-olds dressed in feathers. A bored, unstimulated African Grey is prone to developing unpleasant behaviors and even health problems. Problem behaviors like feather plucking are very hard to reverse once they start. With dedication and care, you can have a happy healthy African Grey Parrot and a great family pet. Getting an African Grey that has been well socialized with people and different situations as a young bird will help ensure a good pet. Provide your grey with a large cage, play areas, and a proper diet. Make sure you give your pet lots of interaction and toys for stimulation.
Care and feedingFoods for your pet bird will include a ready-made large hookbill seed mix enriched with vitamins. Their dietary requirements include sources of calcium and Vitamin A. They eat a variety of sprouts, seeds, nuts, fruits, vegetables, commercial pellets, as well as the same nutritional foods humans eat. A cuttlebone or a calcium block is a good source of calcium. African Greys should not be fed a diet that is high in fat and protein. A lean diet is recommended as recent studies have indicated heart disease and arteriosclerosis occurring in Greys in their late teens and twenties. *Fresh vegetables you can offer include mustard greens, green peas, cucumber, young dandelion greens, sweet corn, beet greens, carrots, broccoli, unsprayed lettuce, chickweed, dandelions, eggplant, green peppers, sorrel, spinach leaves, tomatoes, and zucchini. *Fruits that you can offer include apples, peaches, apricots, bananas, pears, plums, raisons, and most other fruits. *Avocado and chocolate are considered toxic for birds and sugar and salt should be avoided.
