well U2s are way louder than ducorps, hahns can be quite loud too, greys are quite quiet birds in comparison, but they are not the cuddliest of birds when adult.not just my opinion from other adult grey owners :dntknw:


go to http://www.mytoos.com/ and listen to the big guys on there...................................LOUD :shock:

Hi Gary,


Considering the number of unwanted cockatoos (and so many other parrots) I would try to find one who is in need of a good home and adopt one, instead of buying another baby from a breeder. Ducprps can live for 40 years, so worth bearing that in mand as well. If you and any of your neighbours can cope with the noise, try a C2, but other birds might be worth considering as well.


Best wishes,

only 40 years ? i read in quite a few places they can live for 65 + ??


i may consider adopting one instead of a baby from a breeder. but my ducorp is 5 and i would love to bring one up from baby .


this is why im only buying in 3 months time so i can work out ALL options and pick the right parrot as my other life companion.

im just giving snowy same everyday which he loves.


peas


cut carrot


green beans


sweetcorn


peice of colliflower and broccoli


red, yellow, green peppers


all frozen stuff and steamed for 10-15 minutes. when i put into his cage he will sit there for a good 15 minutes eating away at it all. i keep close eye and watch


if all this is good stuff i will stick with it why he likes it all so much. if there is better nutritioned veg i can give him i will add to it


:hi:

mine more or less have the same daily getting them to eat dark leafy veg which is supposed to be best for them is hard they just throw it out! I now do it in a mash with their pulses and frozen mixed veg (carrots,corn, peas,beans) that way they are at least getting some I hope :dntknw:


they all LOVE their sprouted seed tho, cheap and easy to do too.


I know people feed soaked seed is that just the sprouted seed mix soaked and not sprouted??


I would add some fresh chillies whole with seeds the hotter the better according to an article in parrots magazine they are a super food and have loads of health benefits my ducorps love em, Jake wont touch em!!
