(Please excuse the mess...we litterly just got back from a week long road trip to norther Michigan)


It was soo funny yesterday...we were telling our grey to "step up" and she wasn't listening to us...so our little quaker parrot decided to chime in and help. Chloe the QP says three of her favorite sayings in a row..."C'mon", "step up", and finishes with a "good girl" all in a row, one after another!!! Absolutley perfect timing and it brought us to tears we were laughing so hard!!

How adorable that is! My quaker is pretty smart and talks well, too. They are so incredibly intelligent.

Marnie is beautiful! Great photos; thanks for sharing.

That's great! I'm happy to hear that she is settling in very well. African greys are so intelligent and sociable; they're like human children.

That's great!! Some of our greys will start talking around that age, our last was saying a fairly clear hello at that point,`and they usually end up being great talkers!! I hope that ends up being Marnie's case! I love a talkative grey!

She is a beautiful bird. If I was a lot younger I would for sure own an African Grey. There intelligence amazes me.
