Feeding Your African Grey Healthy Foods
A variety of foods is important to providing the diet and nutrition that your African Grey Parrot needs to have a happy and healthy life. There are many differing opinions and thoughts on African Grey diet and nutrition and there is no exact formula for feeding your companion parrot. Provide the most balanced diet for your African Grey as possible.
How To Keep Your African Grey Happy
The key to a happy African Grey begins and ends with confidence. A confident bird feels secure and trusts that his environment is safe. A confident bird welcomes new toys in its cage, doesn’t have a meltdown during thunder storms, and regards the family dog as a nuisance and nothing more. You will accomplish this by creating a deep and lasting bond with your bird. Once trust is established, the world is a much less threatening place. Confidence grows as each new experience has a positive result and the timid African grey discovers there is nothing to be afraid of after all.
By cage standards African Greys are considered medium-sized parrots. As with all birds of this size a cage must accommodate their needs such as being large enough for the grey to completely spread his wings (and flap) without hitting the bars, and provide a safe, comfortable and interesting environment.

Training Your African Grey To Talk
The Gray parrot can mimic any sound. Therefore, they use this skill as a weapon to divert the attention of predators and save themselves. The parrots will start talking when they turn a year old. Teaching them to talk requires a lot of time, patience and efforts.
