Hi! My name is Kononi

I am a Congo African Grey from Homer, IL.

"Big Baby Bird"

25 years old   M

Congo African Grey

Avicakes, grapes, Cheerios, and homemade Italian food esp. meatballs and pizza, scrambled eggs.

wherever his "mom" is; likes his playstand, but will fly off to find "mom", so I have to trot the stand to whatever room I'm in.

hats - lots of puffing and growling

"Mom" gives me lots of toys to shred, and keeps me near her so I can see what she's doing (I'm very curious); she talks to me all the time - I really like that. And I get grapes!

rings his big bell whenever his foodbowl is empty; talks in my husbands voice, especially when the phone rings, he "answers" the phone and talks along for the entire conversation, then says goodbye and clicks the phone down when the conversation is over. Also calls the dogs by name whenever its time for them to go out. Calls the kids by name, too, and actually knows the difference among them..

"Nothing gets past the Parrot".

  Hello Kononi!
Just flying through with a vote for you! My name is Kiwi, I'm a Sun Conure. My mama told me that I will be getting a new family member by the end of this month. He is an African Grey boy like yourself. We are all very excited and can't wait. I hope we become the best of friends!

Take Care and fly by sometime :)

Come visit me, Kiwi.

  Hey Kononi
Sly here. Oh yeah, it's fun getting into anything and everything I can. Mom hates me to chase dad upstairs. But I love to!! And BOXES! I just love them too. Just as long as they aren't in or on my cage. Gotta be on the floor. That way I can make more mess. hahaha
I know what you mean about the oven. Mom takes me out too. Says it's not good for me to be around. Well, if she can be by it then it can't be to bad. Besides all the good stuff that comes out of it!!!
Stop off again soon and I'll find us some boxes to chew up and maybe mom can put something inside them for us too. v4u

  Hello Kononi!
Welcome to the BC! Gandalf the grey here, just giving you a vote and meeting new friends. :) I like to talk on phone conversations also! Isn't it fun? Whoever is calling gets a kick out of me and wants to chat with me instead of my mom! I don't like hats either, I love to hiss at them!
Anyhow, come visit when you get the chance!
Talk soon!
Gandalf and flock

Come visit me, Clyde, BC Spa (closed for renovations), Raven, Rest in peace, sweet Lola. Page #262648!!!, Luca, Apollo, Gandalf & Lyzo.

  Hi Kononi
Sly here. Welcome to BC and here' sa big Grey vote for you too. Good man, I love my mom too. I get to chase dad upstairs sometimes, well, when mom doesn't see me. hehehe
Mom has to leave the room sometimes when she's on the phone. I like to carry on my own conversation and makes her laugh.
Fly on over when you get a chance and meet the flock.
