Birds

African Grey

Hand-reared African Grey Parrots can make wonderful, lively, intelligent pets, but it is important to make sure that they are hand-reared and cuddly-tame. I raise all my baby African Greys in small clutches so that each one gets lots of human attention at a very early age to ensure that the parrots are completely tame and will have a wonderful life in any home.
