The long over due, longer introduction. If you have any questions about her just ask. I will try to have a video up some time next month showing her toys and cage. As I said in the video she is about 4 months old and will learn to talk in another 5-8 months. These birds require A LOT of attention and time, but she is well worth it.
as far as I know their intelligence levels are similar. Personalities
differ in all birds tho. My timneh is 29.
@TICHhardcorelover Not all people keep them in cages, some people, like
myself, keep there african grey out of their cages all day and all night
and have constant interaction with them.
Nixie has her moments as well, haha.
I really disagree that you should get them young. I had a long illness, but
before that , I had a lot of birds and people starting giving me their
problem birds. After 1 day, you couldn’t tell which one I just got and
which I hand fed as babies. And do the math – these birds can live to be 60
(greys) to 100 (Amazons) so there are a lot of birds out living their
owners, and they need homes. I started out just wanting babies, but I was
gorgeous bird..i would love to see an update. my timneh is grown now and is
over a year old and she talks a ton!!!!!! she is so smart. your nixie is
gorgeous and makes me want a baby again. i like the music too.
I want to know how is Nixie now? I haven’t seen any newer videos…unless I
am clueless, which could be true. I own a re-homed Timneh, he is going to
be 14. I have had him for almost 4 years now. The timneh has only maroon,
the red you are seeing I believe is called “red factor” I will look for
more of Nixies videos…
I have a 29 yr old just like this one… her name is Goo.. my mamaw got her
when i was 6 yrs old and she talks non stop! and is very smart… she has
lived with me now for about 6 yrs.. and yes she will know what she is
saying and doing lol she was walking to me one day to get her treat and she
stumbled on one of her perchs and she yelled out SHEW!! WE!! lol and then I
said lordy u bout fell she said YEP! aaawwww
SHE IS CUTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
hi how much about did you pay for the purch im looking for one but not sure
about the prices? plz reply thank you Xx. kikou .xX
How much are African Grey Parrots?? Thank you
we have a timneh. hes awesome, and very happy. he is only in the cage when
he wants to be, and believe me, he lets us know when he wants to be lol. he
makes loads of mimics, and great whistles. But he isnt hand reared, hes
wild. He is great for a wild bird but he doesnt like being handled. he
doesnt get scared, he stands up to us, and shows whos boss. hes got a good
bite but i cant blame him. one day he will pull out the gun from under his
feathers. i love him so much lol.
great video – my african grey passed away-my dad and mom heartbroken. even
the loss of the bird there is emptiness in the house because she use to
wake us up at 6 am .
nice parrot, beautiful!
how much are they?
dang, wut a beauty. i want 1 🙂
Not really. The biggest difference is that Timnehs are more likely to bond
with multiple people and as you stated Timnehs are smaller.
sorry to hear for the loss of your bird .
I don’t live in California so I have no clue.
my girl friend gave me one for free lol
She’s so cute! I adopted a 19 yr old Timneh and he’s just wonderful. I
can’t believe how affectionate he is and he does talk some as well. I’ve
had him not quite a few months. He made himself at home here almost
immediately. I know what you mean when you say they remind you of pidgeons
because I grew up being around homing pidgeons.
How did you train her? I’m planning on getting an African Grey and I don’t
want to have him/her caged. My main concern is the pooping. Thanks.
no, theyre rele friendly.
Insulting me for my age isn’t exactly civilized. I thought, from the
comment, that the BIRDS had issues the people couldn’t or wouldn’t deal
with. This is common in the parrot world, and is not my own “stupid young
judgement.” So very sorry that I misunderstood, and that you took it with
such maturity. *note sarcasm*
Too bad they don’t live for 4,000 years. Hatsheput of Egypt had one who she
told all her secrets to, I bet that “hebebe” knew where the gold was
buried. Just kidding folks.
Hey beautiful bird, mine is a congo who wont shut up welcome to hell!
Please change the lighting too much of a glare.
“They kinda remind me of pigeons. I know it sounds a bit weird” No, it
doesn’t!! Really, they DO look a bit like pigeons! That blurry-blue color
and their bodies are alike and they do look like pigeons!
I have a timneh and they remind me of pigeons too!
I think Timneh and Congo Greys are the most awesome parrots ever. 😀
Aww, baby! Wish mine was still a cute, happy baby. My Congo is now a raging
teenager, but at least puberty is over with at 3 years. A really good food
for these birds is a cooked bean mix. Lots of good fiber, especially if you
mix in some barley. You just cook dehydrated beans for about 45 minutes,
then pack it up and unfreeze small amounts as you need it. Its SUPER good
for them, and they love a warm tasty meal. Just sharing. ^_^
ther cool birds but ther fags my uncles is a bitch it always bite my finger
They didn’t have problems the old owners did, which obviously was the point
of my posts. You are really judgmental.
Nixie is so cute.
ALOT… i got one and it was over £700
Hi this video was taken a few years ago.. so how is the bird now? she
should be around 5 years old..
that’s evanessence in the background isn;t it? good choice of music for a
get a lil recorder n make it play back a couple words over night every
i knew some on who had one for 104 years he had to pass it on to his kids.
anything with a mouth bites…….
ofc itsn not fully grey here is called (translated to english) grey red
tail :)) i realy want one to from little so it know my familie so it wont
bite to often guz our old one be bought it while it was like 1 year old and
bite me twice freaken hard so i’m still little scared of them..
lol im sorry but can you say unfitting music??
my white face grey cockatiel bites anyone that comes near his cage
i’m suprized he hasn’t fed this parrot to his freinds12 foot python snake
DeadlyChinchilla, it occurred to me you might be young after I posted that,
so I checked. I might have pulled my punch on the judgmental comment.
You’re about my son’s age. I did quarantine them, and they were all single
birds. Both their lives and mine were better! The one that haunts me is the
umbrella I didn’t get. A friend’s daughter-in-law had him, and her solution
to it’s screaming problem was to cover it all the time. She tried to coax
her into giving it up, but failed.
Depends on your vet. For us I think it cost us less than $30. Many breeders
offer it as well for an additional cost.
Cute cute bird… I have a senegal parrot , and they are also great pet:-)
Just make sure you have plenty of time to spend with them EVERY DAY! I
recommend AT LEAST 6 hours each day out of it’s cage. Remember that they
can live over 60 years so this is life long commitment! Other than that,
just making sure you have everything you need and try to supply new toys to
play with on a regular basis.
r.i.p. to your grey
It’s gonna get depressed with that music you play!
What a wonderful world.
