when we took Daisy to the breeder for a check up, this little charmer picked us! He and Daisy liked each other, so we decided to bring him into our loving home..

Hi! My name is Donald

I am a Congo African Grey from staten island, NY.

munchkin

8 years old   M

Congo African Grey

i eat just about anything!
i really love almonds, cashews, veggies, you name it!


i love being next to daddy or mommy on the couch in our living room! i also love our portable perch!

i don't like it if you eat in front of me and don't share!

my owners take care of us so well and put love into everything they do for us!

sometimes, i take a food nugget to the water bowl. i dunk it like someone dunking a donut, shake and drip dry it, and enjoy it!.

  Hey There
Hey there
How are you....How was your thanksgiving? I went to grammies for thanksgiving weekend and OMG. I had the best time...lolol I EAT boy I tell ya I EAT when I am at grammies. I loved me some corn, mashed potatos, and dont foget the cranberry relish she made. Its cranberries, oranges, and apples all ground up. YUMMY! Mommy was so suprised I ate so heathly. Along with the food, grammy lives in an older house so we turn on little ceramic space heaters to keep me warm....Well, let me say I became alittle spoiled. I wanted near the heater all the time....I was loving the warmth of the heater. So, much I think mommy is now going to look for a thermo perch or a cage warmer. I also found out that I like a mirror by my cage. Grammy has a big mirror on the wall where my cage was and I spent most of the day talking and playing with my self in the mirror. Boy oh boy mommy takes me on a road trip to grammies and comes back with more things to buy me...lolol I normally scream a lot for mommies attention and having that mirror really helped me occupy myself, to the point mommy felt like she was on vacation. lololol So, you know now that she will be hitting the store that sells a mirror when we get home. She will order me the perch as well. Well, hope all is well and talk with you soon. Beaks to you.

Come visit me, Hailee.

  Hey there my grey friends
Wow that cage is really nice. It sounds like you house both of the greys in it. Mommy has wanted to get a large cage for her boy but everytime she goes to get one people talk her out of it. Because greys are so sensitive. I has a big tree in the living room a 36x36 at work because I go to moms business sometimes and then another cage at home. I so want a large cage at home to elimate the mess so mommy does not have to clean every 15 mins. lolol She has been looking at a cage by design cage but she does not know if I will like it. Mommy has to take me to the pet store 5 times before I would sit on the tree she got me...lolol So, I will have maybe go and find a cage that big and try it out. It looks really nice though. It is so cool that you greys talk to each other. It is funny to see how others act. Mommy tried me on harrisons and I hated it. I am picky eater when it comes to my dry food that is in my cage all day but, not picky with human food. I have dry food all day in my cage and then mommy lets me have dinner with her. That way she makes sure I eat my vegs...lolol I love me some snap peas and corn. I probably would like a bird, but mommy has her hands full with me. Sometimes I do not know how she does it.....Greys are really like children and people have no idea the commitment you make when you get one. I am mommies first bird. And she is also very big on reading up on me, watching all my changes in diet, stool, weight, attitude, etc. We get Bird Talk mag. and it is very helpful. Mommy reads it while I shread the inserts...lolol I like bird talk too. Also the news on BC is really informative. Mommy is so into care and stuff that she is really thinking about doing an internet business to sell stuff to other flock members family. Stuff that no one has right now that I think if everyone cared like we do people would buy the stuff. But, it takes time to get that up and going. Mommies passion since she has had me is parrots. The well being of them, and also caring for me properly. It is a lot of work, but people need to be educated on how to be prepared and how to always monitor us to make sure our health is not in danger. Plus mommy also believes in giving to different organizations for birds. We have to save our flock... But, if and when she does do the internet website she need all our flock support...Especially those that really care about there birdies. Well, chat at you soon. GOBBLE GOOBBLE happy thanksgiving. beaks to you greys.

Come visit me, Hailee.

  Hey there flock!!!!
Hey there....omg I did not know until I looked at your pictures closely there are two of you....hello greys donald and daisy...omg you both are so pretty. Wow how cool I wonder what it would be like to have 2 of you. Do you both talk to each other? lolol. My mommy has taught about getting me a brother or sister but, she thinks I may be jealous of another bird....for I am king of the house..lolol Yes I do talk and I mimic a lot of things. I say about 55 different words and I mimic about 60 different things. My favorite it to pretend I am the smoke detector (that loud abnoxious noise that only took me one time to hear) and then mommy comes running and when she realizes its me she puts me in time out for a minute....then when mommy puts me in the other room for a minute....I say in a real sweet and innocent voice...I'm sorry and I keep repeating it until mommy comes and picks me up...lolol I tell ya us greys are funny...Mommy loves me so much as you can tell in the pictures. I am spoiled rotten and I know in my heart I have a good home. Mommy feeds me the best food, she spends a lot of time with me, she is OCD about how clean my environment is and you know we are messy, and she constantly buying me new toys and things. I have to say I am so glad to see you all are taking care of so well to. It really pleases me to see owners really care for there flock. Because we are not just a dog or a cat....we are in essense a little more work and people do not realize...it takes a special breed of people and it pains me to see those that just think it is cool to have a bird and not take care of them properly. So, we are all so lucky we have the mommies we do. And like your mommy she is so happy to have birds as well. So, what do you guys eat...I eat about anything. I have zupreem fruit and veg. pellets, and dried fruit mixed in with a couple of nutriberries during the day. And at night I have mommies supper. Mommy eats of a tray w/ handles so I can perch on her tray...lolol And I eat all her good food. (vegs. spagetti, stuffed shells, chicken, eggs, potatos, etc.) Well, I will let you go for now. Stop by and chat later. Let me know how you and daisy get along and if you both talk with one another...lolol. Mommies in search for another cage for me...a big big one...thinking maybe cages by design. Any thoughts on that? Beaks to ya flock members.

Come visit me, Hailee.

  Hi Donald!!
Welcome to the Bird Channel! We love it here! Mom saw that you were from Staten Island and just had to come by and welcome you. She lived on SI for about 5 years some time ago. She moved there from Brooklyn after she got married (the first time!) She lived on Mountainview Avenue in Castleton Corners and really liked it there. Sang jazz with her cousin Dan Bremer and a sax player named Ceaser D'Mauro (now sadly deceased). She's been in Florida now for almost 14 years and this is where she learned to love birds. As you will see from my flock of many, she loves birds very much!!! So do your folks, obviously! Well, hope you have a great time here. Fly by when you get the chance. Cheers! Sage B. and the FLorida FLock

Come visit me, Quincy and Chez, Sonny and Dillon van der Beek, Djimo Beaumont Teasedale, Sage B. Teasedale, Sergio, nOOdles and Pipa "Thank you so much!!!", Edla Adler, Jazzy (Mr. Spiffay) & Holly.
