Lincoln came to me as a 4 week old baby. I hand fed him for months and that led to the great relationship we have. My momma named me after her trip back to England...she and her friend had such a great time in the city of Lincoln, she named me that to preserve the memories!!. Awards

Hi! My name is Lincoln

I am a Congo African Grey from Valrico, FL.

Link, Link da link

8 years old   M

Congo African Grey

fresh vegs, fresh fruit and peanuts, and granola

His cage, on the dog bowl rim,outside on the porch, and just about anywhere in the house he chooses to roam!

Sonny, the blue and gold macaw

I love everything about her!!! She takes me outside for walks, gets my wings and nails done on a reg basis and gives me great dinners, treats and her unconditional love (no matter how many times I chase her feet in the kitchen and bite her toes!!)

Lincoln is potty trained!! He will wait till morning and when we get home from work to use the bathroom on the toilet.. .he...POOPS FOR A PEANUT. It was an accident on how he trained, but not one that i regret! It all started when I used to take him outside for some sunshine and fresh air when I got home from work when he was younger. He would sit on my finger and wiggle and jiggle till he was in the pooping position! I would always reward him for that. Then I just started taking him outside first thing in the morning and he did the same. Again, he got rewarded a peanut. When it statred getting cold outside, we did the same, but over the toilet. Then one morning I got rushed for work, so I sat him on the toilet seat...when he has pooped, he flutters off, go back to his cage and wait for his peanut...and that's how it all came about!! Now it's a ritual and he goes at 6 AM, 6PM and then about 10PM!.

  Hello Lincoln!
Your potty training is amazing! We are just wondering if you go just 3 times a day?! Isn't that unhealthy? Pepik is very good tooo, he does his poops on the cage door over the newspapper......but Ferda doesn't care much....

Come visit me, Pepik & Ferda.

  Hello Lincoln
Must be nice not to have someone always cleaning up where you live. My mom is always doing that. She was scared a little when i came to her cause i didn't poop so much, but i think it was my fear. Now i am fine and poop lots..she still isn't so happy about that either, you can't please anyone. she loves me anyway You get my vote, you are a little.."yucck yucck" spoiled, isn't that just great :-)
i see you have a beautiful colorful friend, so do i he is still young but he has a lot of courage he don't let anything get in his way, i love him mom had him first but she loves us both the same.glad you have a good friend too.

Come visit me, Gabriel & Josiah.

WOW! Your one smart guy!!! I wish I could use the toilet too! Theres another grey on the video's on here that uses the toilet too. You should watch it sometime.

Well I noticed that you were from Tampa so I had to stop by. I live in Clearwater. Maybe I can come to your house sometime and you can teach me how to use the potty. hee hee!! My mom would LOVE that!!!!

I sure hope we can be friends and I hope you enjoy it here on the BC. Your gonna make lots of friends. That trick of yours is gonna make you famous!!!

Have a great day!!!

This is amazing I have a baby sun and he poops constantly how on earth did you teach your bird to be potty trained I hear that it can be done but I just dont know how to do it I have taught sunny up but he loves being with me so much getting him down in time to potty never seems to work he has started leaving my hand or sholder and then going on the floor, table, or chair so I have to clean right away. What a smart bird you have you must be so proud.

Come visit me, Sunny.

  Hi Lincoln
When I read that you were potty trained I just had to vote for you. What a smart bird you are. My owner wants to add a grey to our flock someday and I am sure she would love one just like you. I am sure she wishes we were as smart as you and could and would go in the potty.Hey, come and visit us on our webpage.

Come visit me, Kiwi, Buddy, Mikey, Kimidori, Grace, Peeps, Shiori, Ziggie, Bella, Jasper & Chloe.
