My name is Jonathan from Windsor, Ontario, Canada. I have to start this post by saying, I never understood the bird world! How could you possibly enjoy a bird as a pet? I always thought that a pet meant something you could love, take care of, play with, something like a dog, cat, ferret etc. How could a bird give you all of this?. Well, I owe you all an apology for these ignorant thoughts!!! The story goes like this.......
After lots of coaxing from my wife, I started doing research to find her a stupid bird! I settled on a green cheeked conure because that breed sounded like a perfect match for her. We found an amazing breeder in Woodstock named Julie. We bought a beautiful little boy and named him Tequila.
Well I have to tell you... We adore this little guy!! He brings us so much joy and laughter!! He is a little clown who is smart beyond his youth. He loves us back with all of his little heart! He is affectionate and loving and has an awesome personality! Tequila greets us in the morning with lots of chatter and I take him in the shower every day where he begins to tell me a story from beginning to end! He is such a brat and lots of work but I must say....we love taking care of him...the reward far outweighs the work.
I apologize to you for my old ignorant thoughts! Tequila has changed me. Birds are amazing and smart creatures. I owe it all to my wife for coaxing me into this wonderful little pet! I AM HOOKED!!!

Nice to have joined this forum. I am learning a lot. I will keep you updated on my Grey. I have named him Charlie because he is huge. African Grey's are great birds.

Hi friends, I am from Hyderabad, India. I just got myself a 7 month old large African Grey. his eyes are still grey, he's got a huge head for a 7 month old and a huge body as well. I havent sexed him. Could he be a male? Is there anyway to tell without all this DNA testing? just asking. I have placed him in a huge cage in the living room and take him out many times in a day and talk a lot to him. Just hoping he'll talk soon. Nice to have joined this forum. I am learning a lot. I will keep you updated on my Grey. I have named him Charlie because he is huge. African Grey's are great birds.
Yes, it is possible to visually sex african greys, however, please understand that this method is only for Congos and not Timnehs, works best in adult birds rather than young birds and is not 100% reliable. Here's a thread about it, and there are a few different methods shown.
