    Please help! What do you feed your african grey?

    but if I can"t the little tyrant to eat many vegetables and such and forgetting the price, with regards to nutritional benefit would it help to fill the void ? or do you think it's just pointless ?

    Please help! What do you feed your african grey?

    yes the list ive tried compared to the list he''ll eat is massive, must have tried 40/50/60 things maybe more, he likes around 4 of them, but we keep trying. @Danielmoore1996 feeding is the sole thing that worries me on a daily basis, trying to get variety and nutrition all in and then get him...

    Travel cage training

    So last night decided it was time to start training Bert to go in his travel cage, so i put it on the floor, door open and used his stick to entice him in, he normally will do almost anything for his stick. So i open the door and lay down behind it kind of looking through the back. he...

    second attempt, only things he likes, even put crushed nutriberries, pellet, cashews, brazil and walnut sprinkles on top. outcome = NOPE I did manage to get him to eat the sprouted popcorn from it by holding the bowl for him for around an hour on and off. any tips to get them to eat chop ?

    Willow branches/perches.

    does anyone know a suitable or a supplier of some type of bird safe wire, im thinking SS 2/3mm or something similar. I want to make a bridge and/or a ladder and would prefer to use wire for cleanliness and also i would like it to be thin and i'm not convinced thin leather or rope will hold up...

    advise/help or your opinion please

    So just a little update for all. Thank you all for the help and advise. We officially applied for Bert last week and just has the confirmation (pending some paperwork signing) that he’s now ours. so I’d like to officially welcome our new CAG Bert to the Parrot club family 😁

    Surface disinfectant

    Yep F10 here to if you buy the concentrated (F10 or F10scxd which has a washing liquid type thing in it) and mix it 1-250 or 1-500 it’s actually about the same cost as normal surface cleaners. we use it everywhere the bird doesn’t go at 1-100. so 1-100 would be 10m per litre 1-250 4ml per...

    Behaviour ?? (Multi thread)

    hi, yes I took your advise and started to be a little more strict with treat's and he only gets them when he touches the stick if he nibbles or bites he doesn't get one, took him a few days to realise but now he generally touches the stick with the outside off his beak.

    Behaviour ?? (Multi thread)

    This may be one for @Roz ? as you know im still nervous of his beak, doesn't really cause any great issue as he's generally calm and nice, so today I decided to let him nibble on my finger (he tries often but I avoid the beak) So when I pet him or play sometimes he leans in with his beak open...

    Willow branches/perches.

    thanks, as for our tree, i'm loving this "make my own" thing, i'm going to try perches, then ladders and then i want to make him a bridge, if it was me and safe id certainly make some toys and bits out of it. Also done a quick google and found a dozen or more sites saying tis safe, but none i...

    Willow branches/perches.

    So all those pics are willow ? Those look great, thank you. I could certainly make some ladders and such fairly easily, I’d love some shelves but that means finding something bigger, maybe one step at a time, lol. Do I need to do anything special with the willow branches, cleaning wise ? I’d...
