Ricky was a rescue bird bird that had been neglected by his first owner and while I was very intimidated by owning a grey I felt so bad for him and he was so sweet, I just had to bring him home!. Awards

Hi! My name is Ricky

I am an African Grey from Rush, NY.


17 years old   M

African Grey

peanuts and peanuts and peanuts...did I say PEANUTS?

I like to sit way up near the ceiling on my boing so I can survey all the birds I rule and then I love to sit on Daddy's knee in the family room because he's my favorite person!

I do NOT like when the green conures yell their heads off...I tell them to be quiet but they DON'T listen to me!!!

My humans bring me so many toys and treats and they kiss me and loved me even when I didn't have any feathers and looked not so handsome...

I always have to hang upside down for a few minutes before I go to sleep to make sure all is well in my kingdom..

No little birds on MY castle!.

Wow what a great bird. Glad you were so fun and sweet for your new owner after such a bad experience. I can't tell my owner what my last place was like, but she thinks I was well cared for cause I am sweet to her. We live in the DC area and maybe my last owners went overseas and had to leave me. Wish I could tell them that all is well and I am cared for big time.

Come visit me, Sunny(RIP) and Haley, Romeo and Julie(RIP) and loving memory of Maxi & Tahoe and Pearl(RIP).

  Happy New Year Ricky! I have a boing too. I like to hang upside down from it, but I prefer being down on human level where all the action is. That is great that you have your feathers again. Their is an African Grey named Crackers that is asking for advice on how to stop plucking. Maybe you could help? You can find a link to her page through Pringles' page. Poirot

Come visit me, Pepper, Poirot, Pringle & Artistic Avian Avatars.

YOu are so cute. I Am so happy Mommy took you! My Mom is a bit scared of african greys too, she got bit by one before when she tried to keep one that someone gave her and ended up giving him to someone else , where he is happy. He wanted to be the only bird just like me. I Am SO glad it worked out for you and Mommy.
