Congo African Grey For Sale

$900.00

Congo African Grey is the largest of the African Grey parrots, sporting a light gray color in its plumage, and a solid black beak. The African grey parrot is not just a top talker — this bird is also known for its extreme intelligence, which gives them the moniker “The Einsteins of the Bird World.”

African greys capable of amassing vocabularies of up to 1000 words or more, and using the words that they learn to speak in context African greys need plenty of toys that challenge their intelligence, such as foraging and puzzle toys. 

Description

Congo African Grey For Sale

Congo African Grey For Sale, Congo African grey parrots are beautiful with their bright red tail plumage, and their either soft grey or dark grey feathering.  They are very engaging and friendly when young, and can be held by most anyone.  This parrot has by far the best speaking ability, and an uncanny way of knowing what to say at the appropriate times.  One of my favorite pet greys loved to ask, “Is that good?” whenever she heard the refrigerator door open or close. She would also call to strangers to ‘Come here, come here’ then puff up, and lunge at them to watch them jump back in fear, then laugh uproariously because she scared them.

Since the congo african grey is a highly intelligent parrot, it needs to be challenged with interactive toys, and given ample time both in and outside the cage. Wooden toys to chew, ropes to swing upon and paper to shred all make good toys for the industrious grey.  They are very independent, and can play for hours alone. As Greys grow older, (one to two years old) they tend to choose one person to be ‘their’ person, and they securely bond to that person. I have heard of CAG that have stayed friendly to all, but in over 30 years of raising Greys, I have never experienced it.

The Grey is great for a single person, widower, or empty nester. If you are married and can deal with purchasing a parrot that may reject you after a year for your spouse, then that is fine too.  In my experience, it is normally the primary care giver with whom they will bond.

I would not recommend an African grey for families with small children. These birds can be quite disdainful of children who move quickly. Greys have a fine white powder that sheds off of their feathers. This dust is not good for anyone who has asthma.

DIET

Most Greys are good eaters.  They love fruit, veggies, pasta, rice, and anything that you might put on your plate that is healthy!  Since you are their flock, they might be miffed if they did not get food to nibble upon when you are eating your meals.

Cage requirements for a Pet Congo African Grey: The smallest cage that you should purchase for a grey is 24” X 24” X 36”. In order to be housed comfortably, a bird must be able to flap it’s wings in all directions.  Please remember that additional perches and toys will take up room too.
