    Hi! Graham, l’ve seen a couple of male african grey cocks advertised for sale & different website that have been used to an aviary. Ones in Newark so don’t know if that’s too far for you to travel. It also depends if you wanting to purchase or not as most people feel reluctant to rehome their larger birds. Hope you find a bird soon.

    it can be quite frustrating knowing that there are many greys that people want to sell but no paperwork from DEFRA to cover the bird I have been offered more than ten birds since the Cites had been upgraded for the grey at very cheep prices (Under two hundred) and all but two had there original breeders paperwork that meant the owner could register the bird with ease. I will not purchase any cites I bird without the necessary paperwork on principle that I believe in the preservation of wild parrots and the idea of controlling illegal smuggling. Although these birds have been in this country before the upgrade to CITES I and there would be no evidence as they had not been publicly advertised to prove that I had not had the birds for some while and not just illegally bought them, so providing I have the breeding record that can be matched to a ring (so there is nothing stopping me and I could register the birds myself) of course I would not of said about this if I had any intention of making monies from greys by reselling after they are registered. but this dose make me wonder just how difficult policing the sale of birds can be. Finding a suitable grey should not be that difficult getting it to love its partner is a far bigger challenge so good luck.
