    :welcome: from me too.
    I wonder whether @Nigalius or @Kendra may know of someone but they are far east and far west. Good idea maybe to join the Parrot Society.:thumbsup:

    I am sure you will find one shortly and maybe even a rehome, although it may not be a Grey , there are so many birds in need of good homes.

    Here :pancarta:

    If you go to the Caring for our feathered friends section.....you'll find lots of different sub sections - Health, food and diet, housing, environmental hazards...etc.... and at the start of most some pinned topics giving key info. Out forum nominated trainer Roz, has done some great posts in our Training section.
    We're a friendly bunch here so if ther's anything you're not sure of just ask.

    I am afraid I do not know of any African Grey breeders in this wood of the necks (pse ignore me as I am sometimes a little crazy) @Lillian Thomson but will keep my ears open.

    I have thought of one other thing though. You said you have already bought a cage. Please bear in mind the bar spacing as if the cage you have is suitable for a grey the bar spacing might be too big for a much smaller bird?
