There are two known sub-species of the African grey parrot, the Congo African grey parrot and the Timneh African grey parrot (Psittacus erithacus timneh). The African grey parrot is one of the most talented talking/ mimicking birds on the planet, giving it quite a reputation among bird enthusiasts. This parrot is one of the oldest psitticine species kept by humans, with records of the bird dating back to biblical times. Understated beauty and a brainy no-nonsense attitude are what keep this parrot at the peak of popularity.

Do you need a Licence for an African GREY parrot?
If you're buying an African or Timneh grey parrot you won't need to apply for a certificate. But you will need to see the pet seller's certificate or be given the certificate. If you already own a Grey, and don't intend on selling it, you don't need a certificate, and the regulation doesn't affect you.
How do I teach my African Grey parrot to talk?
There's a phenomenon among captive parrots often called the “one-person bird.” These birds closely bond to one person in the household and may shun the rest, even becoming aggressive to anyone who isn't “their” person.

Which is better male or female African GREY parrot?
The One-Person Pet African Grey: A Bonding Process
Perhaps male birds do better with female owners, and female greys bond better with the man in the house. This is absolutely untrue. A grey might choose a favorite person, but it does not bond to one person and one person only.

Do African Greys love their owners?
African greys are the most intelligent of the parrot species. Many grow to be extremely sweet and affectionate toward their owners, and the species is known for being quite sociable.

Temperament: There is a reason why the African grey is often considered the poster bird for parrot intelligence - not only is this bird inclined to amass large vocabularies, African greys have also demonstrated an aptitude for recognizing the meaning of words and phrases. An African grey will need plenty of toys that challenge their intelligence, such as foraging and puzzle toys. African greys seem especially affected by stress and commotion in their environment and can be put more at ease by placing one corner of the cage against a wall as opposed to in the middle of a room.

Breeding: Do not expect your pair to get right to breeding as soon as they move into their new home. At worst, it will take a few years even for a bonded pair to produce their first eggs. Therefore, some careful nudging in the right direction to encourage breeding will help shorten the wait. Feed your birds with a superior diet to make sure they produce robust chicks from large clutches. A poor diet will result in less eggs and sickly young birds.

Diet: African grey parrots are more prone to deficiency in vitamin-A/beta-carotene, and therefore benefit from eating vegetables high in beta-carotene, such as cooked sweet potato and fresh kale. Vitamin-D deficiency is another concern, especially for greys on a poor diet. Offering a balanced pelleted diet as an African grey’s main diet will help prevent vitamin and mineral deficiencies. A grey that consumes a pelleted diet generally does not need vitamin supplements added to its food.
