I was at a local pet store where the people there didn't really know much about birds.
My mommy started working there and noticed that I was starting to pluck my feathers because someone had trimmed my wings improperly. I couldn't even balance on my perch:( Needless to say my "future mommy" was very angry! She yelled at the mean lady who cut practically all of my flight & covet feathers off.
Then she decided to take me home. THANK GOODNESS!!! I slowly became more & more outgoing with each new wing feather that grew in. My Mom spent a lot of time building my trust, since I had none being in the store. She gave me new foods and toys.
Eventually we became Best Friends. Now she teaches me new words and I'm even starting to sing:)My favorite song is The Addam's Family Theme. I can whistle it very well, but still need to work on the words!(laughing- )

Hi! My name is Zulu

I am an African Grey from Charlottesville, VA.

Love Bug
Grey Chicken ( when he clucks!)

10 years old   M

African Grey

I also love to watch my heroes Alex & Einstein on the computer:)

On top of my house or on Mom's shoulder.

Strange & unusual objects moving around my house
The dogs or cats get too close to my house! (I tell them to "GO!")
Taking a bath!

She crochets toys for me while I watch & ask her "Whatcha doin?" She tells me all of the colors & shapes. Then I ask her "Do you like that?" & she tells me YES! Then she asks me if I like it...& I usually bob my head up & down...YES!
She is also teaching me animal sounds. So far I know a chicken & a piggy. We're working on a rooster & a goat next! I can't wait to learn something new!
She rescued me from a traumatic place & I let her know I love her for that everyday!

I like to play Peek-A-Boo with my cage cover.
I also like to drop things off of my cage. ( It startles the dogs & the people:)
Giving commands to the dogs in German and English!
I like to whine like Mack (the big dog) & get him into trouble:)

"If it whistles or beeps...I LIKE IT!"
"Who are you callin' a bird brain!?!?"

  Hello, OK, Bye
Hi Zulu, you are quite a handsome young Grey. I should know, since I have been around the block for almost 22 years!

I have used my three best words for the Subject line. I say more, but Grandma can't figure out what the heck I am saying. She's a 'geezer too! Ha Ha Ha. (*!&% rude noise)!

I am working on my newest song, 'Found a Peanut". I would rather whistle it, but grandma preferes me to use my words!

I am new here too and don't have a clue what a VOTE is good for, but here is one for you!


Come visit me, Axel.

  I'm so glad you got a good home. I found a grey that I would kill to have at a local store. She's already talking: she said hello, hi, and what's going on to me a few days ago. Too cute. She's in a tiny cage with a small toy, no mental stimulation at all. I wish I could take her out of that environment but don't have the experience yet for such a large bird. Just my tiel for now. Have a vote and have a good life.

Come visit me, Canyon & Luna.

  Hi Zulu
Welcome to the BC. So glad to be the 2nd bird to say hi.
Your mom was so sweet to adopt you. So you are a singer too. I sing Yankee Doodle Dandy, Itsy Bitsy Spider and a host of other songs. In addition I talk up a storm and dance. Pretty talented for a medium sized Hahns Macaw. Hope your stay is very enjoyable. Here is my vote for you. Hope you can stop by and visit.

Pecks galore,

Sweet Pea

Come visit me, Sweet Pea.
