I've always
wanted and African Grey ever since I was little, and I finally got my chance when I met someone at work who wanted to have their Grey adopted to a good home. It seemed like it was meant to be.

Hi! My name is Java

I am a Congo African Grey from n/a, NH.

Jav, Java Bean, dust bunny

15 years old   F

Congo African Grey

my soft food (grains, fruit, spices, ect.) all cooked up especially for me! I run over if I see it coming and my night time snack, a few pine nuts that mom lets me pick out all by myself from a dish

I like to sit on top of my cage door and I like to sit on mom's shoulder when she is on the phone. I even yell into the phone unexpectedly and say "do you have some food?" or "I want a cracker!!!" people on the other end usually end up just laughing... I've never actually got any food out of it!

when people don't share their food with me, my travel cage, and baths

I love it when my mommy scratches my neck but only at night!!

If Mom brings me to look at the fish tank and a fish comes up to me I like to say "Hello!"

I sing along, try to, to commercials on tv
.

"It's okay, I've got food".

  Hey Java!
We are a lot alike when it comes to having our cages cleaned! I lovw what you say to your mom. That's funny! I also decide to take a bath in my water dish when mom vacuums!
I am a picker too . I have been tested and checked and I am fine. And I am very happy to. It is just something I do. But I don't pick as much as I used to!
Well sweetie hope you are having a great day today!
Love,
Raffikki and a V4U

  Hey Java!
Maybe it's a grey thing but I don't know one grey that likes that stupid Mr. Towel! I can't explain the swifter duster thing. I just get all excited when I see mom dusting and want her to dust me too. I get all mushy, my eyes roll back and I bury myself it it. My thinks it is really funny. Maybe I think it is another bird. I don't know.
Yeah, taking a bath in the water dish is a bit hard, but I do a pretty good job with it. How about you? Can you get a good bath out of it! I love doing it right after my mom puts clean papers in my cage so that I can soak them and have her do it again!
Have a great day today my friend!

  Thanks from Gizmo!
It was my hatchday yesterday and Mom realized it later in the day before supper. She had no clue ahe would wake up to an email that I was BOTD because we could not get on BC at all since the afternoon and Mom felt bad because she went out today, and did not even have time to get me a crown until later this evening. It's okay though. She said I can wear it all week if I want to. I am going to do all the voting tonight too since Mom can't type well with just one hand.

This morning was a big surprise, seeing my frother has been asking for votes for me, knowing I cannot outvote any other birds and I really want to get up to 5000 before March which is when I got BOTM, and then I have to step back so as not to over vote any other birds because that would not be right of me. Speidning the day at the castle today was greyt - I even got to go for a ride on George with Zak, and spend time with my favorite friends Lizzie and Kaji and there are so many I could write a book. I think mom enjoyed a day with two birds less two because she had a rough week of it. Two birds had come back to her that she adopted out in the past two years and she was upset, and now, one is in foster care but the other... she will be looking for a new home once the blood work is back. iN the meantime, Zak has another bandage, and will until the wound is completely closed up. mom is seriously thinking of buying shares at the clinic - it may pay off in the end. LOL Thank you for coming by to congratulate me, and if you can, keep coming by to vote for me... i would really really appreciate it. but - only til the end of February. LOL

  Hey Java it's Zak
Zak comes along riding on George, hanging on for his life. He is not used to this, but it is sure better than sitting at home, bored out of his mind. Don't tell Mom I escaped. She decided to take a nap and I waited until she was asleep and Floop got me over here. There is just no way I can stay home any longer. I need to be where my friends are. I will rest. I will do as the doctor has instructed but I will not sit in my cage and be bored. I need to be outdoors in the sun and George here can take me anywhere. He is a lifesaver! He is so careful, and ever so gentle too.

  Part 1 from Zak
Thank you everybirdy for your thoughts and prayers. I am not out of the woods yet. My foot is still sore, and I am on all sorts of medicine twice a day. Let me tell you what happened, even more than Mom knows since she wasn’t there. She took me back to the clinic yesterday morning (Saturday) after having give me a good breakfast and my medications. I was taken into the back room in my carrier and I was scared, even though Mom had spent time telling me it would all be okay, and she would be back for me tomorrow. A while later, which seemed like forever, I saw the doctor that I had seen with Mom and he started talking softly to me. I like his voice. It is soft and gentle. A lady took me out of the incubator I had been put in, and placed me on a bed, and I saw the doctor holding something that looked like the syringe with my medication in it. I do not remember anything after that until I woke up feeling very strange. My foot had a bandage on it and I could not see my toe that was sore. I saw my other 3 but not the sore one. I could not feel my foot. It was like it had no feeling in it. I could not stand on it. I was in the incubator again, and it was nice and warm there. There was food and water but I did not feel hungry either. I wanted to go back to sleep, but the doctor gently lifted me out and talked to me, telling me I will feel better soon. He scratched my head which was nice, and he said he was going to call Mom and tell her I am awake and recovering well. MOM… I want to come home. I tried to tell him but he had put me down and was heading out of the recovery room. Mom told me today that he did call her and she felt better after his call, that she was very worried about me, In the evening, I still was not hungry and did not eat enough of my veggie soup so they fed me with a tube which was really strange, but they explained that they had to keep me hydrated. I REALLY wanted to go home.

  Part 2 from Zak
A nice lady told me before they turned off the lights for bedtime that Mom had called to find out how I was doing and she was coming tomorrow to take me home. I was given my medications after supper and was tired and fell asleep. Today, Saturday, they told me Mom had called and was coming to get me after lunch. They gave her an appointment to be able to tell her things to watch for, just in case. I could not wait to see her. I was carried out to her in the waiting room in my carrier and boy did I sound off. She was happy to see me too. We had to go into the back room to talk about my surgery and how it went and everything she had to look for, and she made an appointment for me to get my bandage changed next week. It seems I have to get another needle to be asleep when they do it, just in case it bleeds. The doctor will know more then, how long I will have to wear a bandage, and so on. In the meantime, Mom has to continue with my medications and take things one day at a time. While I was gone, Mom put in some flagstone perches, like steps, in case I needed help to get up to my favorite perch. I let her know what I thought of those. There is poop on each of them. Mom laughed. I prefer standing on my good foot for now, and Mom said she will not give me nuts in the shell but will give me things that are easy for me to eat until I am all healed. I love being spoiled. She did say I can go back and forth from here to the castle but she wants to keep a close eye on me until she is sure there is no swelling or pain or anything, which means at least until the bandage is changed. She knows me well. So… I will be time travelling, especially since there is a 3 hour difference from here to the castle.

  King Zak limps over to Java
I had a rough day today. You see I had a sore toe and had to be flown home so Mom could take me to my own vet. I have to be flown home again tomorrow, to go to the vet for surgery... my toe has to be amputated. What a way to spend my reign in the castle, but it is a good place to be taken care of while I recuperate. There goes swimming for a little while but I am cheerful about it... for now. Tomorrow we shall see.

  King Zak here
I was flown in to the castle early, when it was still dark and forget about unpacking. It was all done for me. I got to sleep on the wonderful perch I remembered from the last time I was here as BOTW - I had requested it, and one of the butlers remembered which room I had and it was still there, the perch I mean. It is still dark out, but who could sleep in. I am so excited to be here. I had a cooked breakfast of oatmeal and fruit and I am ready to go out looking for Lizzie and start my day off doing all sorts of fun stuff. I begged the keys from the chariot from Floop and he pinned his eyes at me, but then gave me that frotherly smile and handed them to me. Getting around will be faster that way. Thank you again for all those votes. Without your friendship I would not be here today! Drop by and visit anytime.
My goodness Java, are you shy or something? Mom has a few Greys and has never heard of one that was shy before. I called her to ask. I wish you had blogged to let me know you were voting because I was telling everybirdy the History of the Speedo, as a part of my campaign and you missed it all. I am looking at your pictures while the castle secretary is typing for me and you like to chew paper too. Has your mom ever given you a phone book - now they are real fun if you can get your beak into one of them. Hope to see you again. Nice to meet you too!

  Hi Java
Sly here. Now that the finches have gone to the castle and made it home the rest of us get to be online. Yeah, I love to bang my toys too. I also have some leather shoes that I chew on and may have banged one the wrong way or maybe it was when I attacked dad's shoe. At any rate I did a good 1/3 of my lower mandible. It's doing much better now. I'm back to chewing my leather and even some wood. Still have to have softened food and I even make mom warm it up still. hahaha I just REALLY miss chewing nuts!! And eating seeds. Mom has a dish of them for me so I can try them any time. Mom says this is doing me real well because I'm learning to eat other things. She's right but don't tell her that. Gotta fly for now. Fly on by when you get the chance. v4u

  Hi Java
Sly here. Hey we get to be on again!!! I'm just waiting to hear what Rocky says about the total.
I can hardly wait for my beak to grow back I can't eat food very well and especially my nuts. Mom keeps trying to shove moist pellets at me, but I just take out as many as I can and leave them piled in my cage. You'd think she'd get the hint wouldn't you? But she keeps at it. The best thing she does is mix my nuts into the mix.
Do you remember what broke your beak? I was doing so much that night that I'm not quite sure which it was and mom was cooking dinner.
Thanks so much for flying by Hope to see you again soon. v4u

welcome to the b.c.! you african grays are so human like. our friends have a gray that they adopted that was named buddy. they had her dna'd and found out it is a female so they changed her name to bunny. the first time i took care of her she sounded so much like a woman when she said "hi" i jumped. we have two amanzons at our house but bunny just sounds different. again welcome and here's your first vote. birdie hugs, Pepper and all...
