Two years after my beloved Grey, Saha, died, I yearned for another Grey. Through an animal magazine I contacted Jacko's former owner, who didn't have enough time for him. He was pulling out feathers. He'd "escaped" outside 5 times and was luckily found again each time. The owner contacted me and I agreed to take him. It was great having a Grey in the house again!! His owner has visited him twice.. Awards

Hi! My name is Jacko

I am an African Grey from Jonen, Intl.

Just Jacko

18 years old   M

African Grey

Cooked oatmeal and walnuts

On top of doors.

When Jacko is upset, he will pull out some feathers.
If he doesn't like what I am doing or if I try taking away something he's gotten and shouldn't have, he will fly, attack, bite and fly off.

She lets me help prepare the bird food and talks with me all the time. She loves me and isn't afraid of me even if I bite her.

Jacko loves to play with plastic bottles. He will roll them around on top of his cage and finally get the cap off. He likes me to put some juice in the bottle caps and he will hold the cap and drink.
Jacko also likes to chew paper rolls. Jacko will do something he knows he shouldn't and then say "oh-oh".
Jacko will mimic the other birds in the room. He talks up a storm.
Jacko also loves to play ball.

Let's talk about it.
If it's forbidden, I wanna do it.

  Hi from Ruby!
Hi Jacko! You look very handsome. Mom says I'm a beauty also now that I've quit biting my feathers! I love playing with bottle caps too. Skin sis Emily puts a bunch on the floor and I pick them up and put them in a cup. Mom is absolutely thrilled that I learned how to cry like a baby when she goes to work. I like to make her feel a little guilty, haha.Heres a vote for you my friend! Kisses, Ruby

Come visit me, Ruby.

Do you all get along good with each other? I will go and meet with every one of them over the mext few days, but I just had to make you my priority- after all. us Jacks got to stick together heeheehee. I see you like playing with balls- me too. Any size, it doesn't bother me. Gotta keep flying cos mum is trying to finish early so she can enjoy a whole night of doing nothing. Bah- humans!
