For food the key is variety. I feed my birds chop, seed mixes, nuts, legumes etc. to make sure they aren't missing anything. They also get a couple of pellets a day or they have them ground up on their fresh food. Diet is tricky to get right!

With toys, again, variety is the way to go. African greys are good at figuring out puzzle and foraging toys just make sure the toys are the correct size for the bird

Bathing is different with every bird. They may bathe in their water bowl, in the sink, the shower or you may choose to mist them

Clipping wings is a personal preference however unless you feel it is absolutely necessary then I wouldn't

Parrots can be ear-splitting loud, depending on the individual birds. However, it is uncommon to hear of a loud African grey

With cages, get the largest you can fit I clean my cages with Poop-Off and F10 disinfectant
