I always wanted a Grey. So I did my research on both Congo's and Timneh's and decided that the Timneh was more right for me. I located a breeder close to me and fell in love on my 1st visit.. Awards

Hi! My name is Pepper

I am a Timneh African Grey from Hope Mills, NC.

Pepper Longstocking,

10 years old   F

Timneh African Grey


On top of my cage/playgym.
On my t-stand. Anywhere my human is.

I don't like it when my human grabs the shampoo bottle in the shower and shampoo his hair. I get irritated when he goes into the walk in closet without letting me go see that everything is ok in there.

he hugs me, talks to me, plays with me, and never makes me do anything I dont feel like doing.

I like to stand beside faucet while it is running and flap my wings and then "hop" into the sink, as if to be saying CANNONBALL!!!
I also like to preen the cotton ends off of Q-tips and then drop the naked Q-tip on the floor and say "Oops, I'm sorry". It is fun to ask "are you pretty?" then wolf whistle.

What!? Who are YOU calling a BIRD!!!, I am a high ranking member of this family. If you dont like it ... YOU can leave!.

I have a Timneh named Pepper to! He is almost one year now.. we have so much fun! When my Pepper started talking, it sounded (and still sometimes sounds) a little garbled, not everyone can understand him. Did you find the same thing?
Pepper and Sydney

Come visit me, Pepper.

  Hi Pepper!
Wow, you are smart and beautiful....that is how all women birdies and women people should be. he he he! Can you tell my mom is my favorite person? What can I say, she is the greatest....just like your daddy seems to be? I almost fainted when I read you spend time with your daddy and you like to play in the water. I growl at my daddy and bite him. I hate the shower. Mom even started taking me with her into the shower. She sure looks like she is having fun and I like to talk to her in the shower but please do not put me in that water. YUCK! You must be brave, too. I could never play in the water like that. I say "hello" but only when I want to. I do garble other words but nothing that mom can figure out yet. I am only 5 months. Well it was nice meeting you. I must go visit my girlfriend, Knuckles. Birdie beak kisses for you...

Come visit me, Echo, Tootles, Kiwi & Moose E. Moose.

I think that's amazing. I live alone but spend a lot of time with Toby and also talking to him. I also don't have any other pets at home. Toby goes to work and back home with me every day. You just might be a very lucky person and picked a very smart Timneh. Any advise you could give me would be great. Thanks for responding, Take care.

Come visit me, Toby.

  Hello Pepper
Toby wants to know if you did anything special to make him speak early. I also gave Pepper a vote today.

Come visit me, Toby.

  Hi, Pepper! Looks like several of us are amazed at how early you talk. You're one "gifted" bird!! I'm sure I'll be talking soon and then my mom and dad probably won't be able to get me to quit!! I DO jabber alot now!!
Have a great day, Pepper!!

Come visit me, Kunta.

Is it true you started talking at 4 months? Toby is almost 43 weeks old that's almost 10 months old. Not a word as of yet just a lot of wolf whistles and he tries to sing with the radio or CD's. Can you give me any advise. I don't whistle at Toby but he picked it up at work. Did you do anything special or is Pepper just a gifted talker??? Hope you answer me back.

Come visit me, Toby.

  Hello again!
Wow, Pepper! You started talking at FOUR MONTHS!!?? My mom read several things that said that we don't usually start talking until we're about a year old! I'm about 7 months old right now. You're an early talker! Good for you!! Any tips on how I can get an early start? My mom and dad talk to me all the time and repeat things. I know what most of the stuff they say means, but I've just never said it myself! You're my hero, Pepper!!!
Have a nice day!
By the way....I don't know where you live, but it's COLD here in Iowa! Only 2 degrees right now!! Brrrr...!!

Come visit me, Kunta.
