My dad won me at a bird fair in l990. I sure get a lot of lovin' from him. Mom is busy taking care of all the eclectus babies, but she loves on me a lot too when she has time. I call her "4". Don't know why, just sounds cute to me I guess. I call my daddy by his name when I want him. Very loud, so he can hear me wherever he is. Mom does too.. Awards

Hi! My name is Zulu

I am an African Grey from Houma, LA.


26 years old   M

African Grey

Anything that is on a plate. Love to eat steak or crawfish. I peel my own.

Daddy's shoulder and top of my cage in the sunroom where I can watch TV in the den.

Don't touch my toys, especially my squeaky ball.

They treat me like family and I love them right back. I am not a bird I am a little person in grey feathers.Its a good thing they know that. Everyone says they want to come back as a parrot and live with my parents. I am the happiest African Grey that I know of and I give back that love to everyone I know.

I love to chew holes in my daddy's old t-shirts while I ride his shoulder. He wears the old ones just for me. I give kisses to anyone that wants one and I don't even bite. I love everyone. Come 6:30 PM I come into the the den, climb up on the back of the bar stool and start to scream "Wheel" until it comes on and every time someone claps. Which they do a lot. I loved changing TV channels when we were living in the camper after the Hurricane. That was a lot of fun. Can't reach it now that we are back in our home.
Sure looks different in here tho.

Give love and thou shall receive it in return. Chip & Foxey don't like me tho. Thats an Amazon for ya! They are just jealous..

  Hello Zulu
My Mom & Dad live in Southeast Texas, but my Mom's grandparents came from Louisiana, in fact it's funny because the town you live in was my Mom's Grandmother's maiden name! :-) I'm a lot like you I'll eat anything that my family is eating too. I also have amazon sisters and a brother, also a Greenwing brother, a pionus brother and a pair of indian ringneck siblings. Then I have a bunch of furry brothers and sisters too. Sometimes I think I live in a Zoo! But it is a lot of fun here too. If you ever get a chance to visit this way, stop by.

  Hi Zulu!
That sounds like fun changing the TV channels! Here’s a vote for you and a birdie poem: I love birds, I love them so, Life without them I’ll never know. Each day starts with a meeting, Chirps and whistles it’s their own special greeting. Fresh fruits and veggies to wash and chop, Served with warm birdie bread to fill each crop. Toys of wood, leather and bells, Makes for fun with loud squawking yells. Feathers and pellets all over my floor, Does not deter me from loving them more. As the sun fades we share kisses and scritches, Then it’s off to each cage with sweet dream wishes. If you enjoyed that, please stop by the Bird Contest section on this website and give us your vote in the poetry contest – we are on page 4! Mom would like to add another member to our flock and by winning a new cage, this would encourage Daddy to let her do so!

Come visit me, Riley, Tinkerbell, Tiki & Sayde Rose.

  Hello Zulu,
Nice to see you also on here, that give me the chance to introduce you to my tiels flocks. I have two or african grey's poster close to my cage. My mommy put them far away that I can't eat them, I rather chew her notes close to her computer, when I am not on her shoulder tickling her ear.

Heeeellllo-o, from Noella.

Come visit me, Bob, Noella & Whity.

  Hello, Zulu
Hi from the chilly north. We are ready for spring in Missouri. It was supposed to warm up this week end, but surprise! We got 2 inches of snow instead. The groundhog promised an early spring. I am READY! Have a good day. Tuki ♥

Come visit me, Tuki.

  Hi Zulu
Just read one of your posts to my friend Tuki about the hurrican and how many parrots lost their homes and or families. My Mom (call her T) and I were very touched to read this and would like to help. Do you know if there is a charity or support group that is helping these parrots? MM

Dear Zulu, Thanks for the chicken ideas. Next time mom cooks chicken she will have to get some with bones in them. Mostly she cooks boneless skinless chicken, not much fun for a grey! We are supposed to get 1 inch of ice today, so guess everyone will stay home with me for a few days! I went to visit your pal Eckkie, they sure are pretty birds too. Stay warm, Tuki.

Come visit me, Tuki.

  Culinary Questions
Dear Zulu, How do you like your chicken bones cooked? My human mom wondered about giving me something like that to nibble on now and then. My friend Monty May encouraged mom to let me have a little cookie now and then, I really liked gingerbread over the holidays, and mom made some tiny cut out cookies just my size. Hope you are having a good day. It is sunny but cold today in Missouri, they say rain the next 3 days. We need the rain, and with my new UV light, who cares if it is dark outside? Love, Tuki

Come visit me, Tuki.

  Tuki says hi!
Dear Zulu, sounds like you went through the hurricaine. I am glad you were safe as well as your people. I wondered if any parrots were lost during that sad time. I don't watch too much TV, but the animal channel is fun some of the time. As long as I can sit on someones hand, I will watch anything!

Come visit me, Tuki.

  Hi Zulu!
What a wonderful home you have! How funny that you love Wheel of Fortune. I love Sandra Lee on the cooking network, even though my Mom hates her. Absolutely hates her. But she'll still put her on for me. Boy, I've got her trained well!

  Hi Zulu
I love your pictures, they are great. I like your name too. One of my favorite phrases to say is "Zulus, thousands of them" which comes form the move called Zulus. So I already can say your name. I am not a great one for watching TV except when Mom puts on the birdy video for me. However, I do like to change channels and pull the keys off of the remote if given a chance.

  Hi Zulu and welcome
I am cracking up over putting holes in Daddys shirt cause I have done that to Mommys shirts too. And I have bent her rings and grabbed her sunglasses and not let go haning on tight and growling at her when she tries to pry me off them. hahahaha

You sure are a happy loving sweet bird. And me too I want anything they eat, I love food.

LOVE!!!! You photos! cute!
