I owned a yellow naped hand tamed amazon "Grouchy' for 18 years. He was my pride and joy. I lost his to liver failure this past June. I was lost without my buddy so I went bird shopping. I decided to get a Grey because they have differences from the amazon and NO BIRD could ever take Grouchys place. Franki was 1 year old when I got him and nasty. Through time and patience we have bonded and still have lots to teach each other. He makes me laugh with uncondional love.. Awards

Hi! My name is Franki

I am an African Grey from Ashford, CT.

Franki Beans, cuckoo bird snake face

11 years old   M

African Grey

He loves sun flower seeds but he only gets about 5 a day. He likes bananas, grapes and pasta.

Franki likes sitting on top of his cage strutting around also his play stand. He loves watching out the window and watching me play games on the computer

Franki gets very poseesive of his toys and puffs up twice his size like hes a huge hawk ready to attach!! Hes a riot.

I love the way my Human Parents think I am a kid. I am a very lucky bird to be loved so much. My 2 lab dogs are special to me too!!

He loves to dip his face in his water bowl and throw water all over the kitchen floor. It looks like a pipe broke.
He gets down on the window and asks the wild birds outside on the bird feeder if they want a grape!!
He has listened to Alvin and the chipmunks music so now thinks hes "Alvin" complete with voice.

You get what you put in. Lots of love..

  Hello from Ashford
I'm amazed to find out there are 4 African Greys from Ashford on this site. We've only lived here for 1 1/2 years.

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.

  Here’s a vote for you and a birdie poem:

I love birds, I love them so,
Life without them I’ll never know.
Each day starts with a meeting,
Chirps and whistles it’s their own special greeting.
Fresh fruits and veggies to wash and chop,
Served with warm birdie bread to fill each crop.
Toys of wood, leather and bells,
Makes for fun with loud squawking yells.
Feathers and pellets all over my floor,
Does not deter me from loving them more.
As the sun fades we share kisses and scritches,
Then it’s off to each cage with sweet dream wishes.

If you enjoyed that, please vote for us in the poetry contest – we are on page 4!

Come visit me, Riley, Tinkerbell, Tiki & Sayde Rose.
