Hi! My name is Trance

I am a Congo African Grey from Ocala, FL.

Chicken legs and Trance-a-saurus rex...:D

8 years old   M

Congo African Grey

Just about anything...But mostly sweet potato.

On mommy or on the deck...I love to see all the other birds.

I don't like my wings touched.

When mommy loves and hugs me...and she has food!

Talking for hrs. in that secret grey language. Hanging upside down and flapping his wings..

If it stays still long enough, it's food!.

  Odin saying Hi!
Hey Trance.. I can also get off my playstand, but I don't come find mommy or daddy, instead I just sit there and sqwuak! So mom doesn't keep me on the play stand unless I'm supervised, because there's wayyy too many things in the house that can get me! (especially the scardy cat who is actually getting braver around us birds!)

Anyways, have a good one! A vote and note for you!`

  Hi Trance
You need to go meet Sadie. She is my sweety, and her mommy makes better birdie bread than my mommy, I think. She sent me some in the mail. I loved it!!!! Of course, I love my mommy's too, but this was really fabulous. I was eating Holistic dog treats today too, and they sit and wait for me to throw them some too. I have those dogs spoiled, so they do like me. They even listen when I tell them no, Tweet out loud!!! I voted for you~~Uzi

  Hi Trance
Most of the time, mom takes Jiffy cornbread mix, and just throws stuff in it. We like it with the pureed organic sweet potato. It comes in a can in the organic section of the grocery store. She puts in eggs, shell and all, then some wheat germ, and multigrain cereal (like oatmeal, but with other grain in it too) She will put nuts, fruit or veggies, sometimes applesauce. She does use about 4 eggs when she makes it....just keep throwing stuff in...and don't forget the cinnamon...we love it with Cinnamon and Ginger. She sometimes calls it kitchen sink birdie food. The past few times, she put Harrisons pellets in it 'cause we don't like them, but they are good for us she says. One way to make us healthy, I guess. Sadie's mom sent us birdie bread that she made. We will try it tomorrow. Her mom says she uses regular jiffy mix and builds on it....not an exact science, but we like all of it~~Uzi

  Hi Frankie Trance & Spunky
Hi there guys, hope it's you that left my a message. Thanx anyway. My mom added some pics of me, have a look you can even see me grow. My dad also had a Grey just like you, a few days before my arrival, he went missing. My mom told me, he was such a great talker, bark like the dogs, and even amaizing sounds. His name was Jinx. My dad was so hart broken. Sure you are also very cute. My mom already take me for short walks outside on the grass, she moved away about 40 cm then call me, then I walk up to her, she praizes me, cuddle me. She even start me potty training, and it's going very well. She said I'm a very clever bird. Nice talking to you. Hope to hear from you soon.

Come visit me, Chesco.
