Leia Timneh African Grey parrot near me

A member of the Psittacidae family of Old World parrots, the grey parrot (Psittacus erithacus) is sometimes referred to as the Congo grey parrot, Congo African grey parrot, or the African grey parrot. Previously classified as a subspecies of the grey parrot, the Timneh parrot (Psittacus timneh) has been upgraded to a complete species.

Leia’s Behavior

  • Frequently bonds with one family member, rejecting others.
  • Often fearful or intolerant of strangers.
  • Parent-raised African gray chicks are considered to be better adjusted than those raised entirely by humans. Baby birds that receive human handling while still in the nest tend to show fewer behavioral problems (e.g. feather picking, fearfulness, aggression) at maturity than those that do not.
  • Tamed birds readily adapt to new surroundings and activities; expose early to daily activities in your household as well as to other pets
  • Very intelligent, curious, and love to explore their surroundings.
  • Need environmental enrichment, interesting toys, and foraging exercises to reduce the chance of behavioral problems.


  • Wild African grey parrots feed on a variety of fruits, nuts, and vegetables.
  • Seed-based diets are not recommended as they permit pet birds to select an imbalanced diet from what is offered.
  • Formulated diets (“pellets” or “crumbles”) provide more complete and balanced nutrition, do not allow selective feeding, and should comprise about 75% of the diet
  • Dark leafy greens, vegetables, and fruits can make up 20-25% of diet
  • Treats should be limited to only 5% of the diet
  • Clean, fresh water should be provided daily


  • Enclosures should be as large as possible, such that the bird is able to fully extend it’s wings and flap without touching the cage walls
  • Cage should be clean, secure, safe and constructed of durable, non-toxic materials
  • Perches should be of variable widths, heights, and textures. Also provide a concrete perch to help to maintain the toenails.
  • Avoid placing perches directly over food or water to prevent contamination
  • Access to natural light is preferred, and supplemental UV light may be recommended to treat or prevent feather picking or hypocalcemia.
  • Avoid drafty areas.
  • Parrots should stay in their cage or a “bird safe” room when they are not under direct supervision.
  • Birds with unrestricted access to the home are at risk for accidents such as toxin ingestion, electrocution, pet attacks, and drowning.

African grey parrots for sale in USA or Equatorial Africa, comprising Angola, Cameroon, the Congo, Gabon, the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Kenya, and Uganda, is home to the grey parrot. The species can be found in a region stretching from Kenya to the eastern Ivory Coast. The current range of estimates for the world’s bird population is 630,000 to 13 million.

According to a population analysis from 2015, the species has been “essentially eradicated” from Ghana, with a decline in population of 90–99% since 1992. Only 10 of the 42 forested areas included them, and three roosts that had earlier housed 700–1200 birds each had just 18 in total. Locals primarily attributed the decline to the pet trade and timber harvesting.

In Cameroon, populations are believed to remain stable. Although the annual quota is reported to be 5,000, it is estimated that 15,000 animals are kidnapped from the eastern portion of the Congo each year for the pet trade.

African grey breeders near me

African grey parrots for sale in USA have escaped or been deliberately released into Florida, U.S., but no evidence indicates that the population is breeding naturally.

The actions and behaviors of these birds in the wild are poorly understood. It can be extremely challenging to study these birds in the field due to their status as prey animals, which causes them to have highly hidden personalities, in addition to a lack of research funding. Similar to their captive relatives, it has been demonstrated that wild greys can mimic a wide range of noises. Researchers in Zaire recorded two greys while they were roosting, and they discovered that they were capable of imitating over 200 distinct sounds, including nine other wild bird songs and one made by a bat.

Breeding – Timneh parrot near me

Monogamous breeders who build their nests in tree cavities are grey parrots. Every pair of mated parrots requires its own tree to build a nest in. Incubating her eggs for 30 days while being fed by her lover, the hen produces three to five eggs per clutch. The nesting places are defended by the adults.

The parents of grey parrot chicks must feed and tend to them in the nest. Up to 4-5 weeks after they have fledged, their parents care for them. At the age of 12 weeks, the young leave the nest. About this species’ wild courting habits, little is known. When they hatch, they weigh 12–14 g (7–16–12 oz), and when they leave their parents, they weigh 372–526 g (13–8–18–12 oz).
