Hi, everybody. I suspect this is mainly a North American forum, but if there are others from the UK, especially nearby in East Anglia or the south-east of England, I’d love to hear from you. Possibly for reciprocal parrot-sitting even? We’ve got two birds, Groucho, a yellow-crowned Amazon whom we got as a hand-reared adolescent 34 years ago and who turned out to be female, and Doris, aged 22, a Congo African Grey whom we adopted in 2008 after her showbiz owner died suddenly in his 60s. They share a largish cage without too many squabbles and sing tuneless duets and chat. That get let out daily but don’t fly. Both like to go walkabout, and Doris has demolished the wheels of our shopping trolley in the nearby pantry when unsupervised (you do need eyes in the back of your head!). Do get in touch if by any chance you live nearby.
