He was my birthday gift. We spent days looking and I received more than my fair share of bites from birds we had looked at. When I first reached out to Koko he let me scratch his head. When I picked him up, he snuggled under my chin. The rest, as they say, is history.. Awards

Hi! My name is Koko

I am an African Grey from Sebastian, FL.


11 years old   M

African Grey


On his cage or on the couch with us.

Any food that is red - he throws it from his bowl.

She plays,sings songs and dances with me. I am learning to sing many songs and say many phrases. My favorite being "Koko wants a peanut".

He likes to call our dog Peanut over to his cage. he then opens the door to his food bowl and feeds Peanut whatever is in his bowl.
In the morning, when he sees our coffee cup, its "Koko wants a drink".

Koko has two that he likes to sing about.....
"Macho, macho bird ... I want to be a macho bird" and "Yo ho, Yo ho ... a pirate's life for me".

  Hi Sweetie!
We voted for you, please vote for us!
Love PeeWee & Cheeky!

Owner's note:
Since you are local I just thought I would mention:
Cheeky came from a pet store but PeeWee was adopted from M.A.R.S (Melbourne Avian Rescue Sanctuary). If you are not familiar with them, try to visit sometime. They are usually open on Saturday as well as a couple of days a week. Check their facebook page for opening information:
They do wing & beak clipping, boarding, birdie boot camp & more plus the owner is always happy to answer questions and give advice to fellow bird owners.

Come visit me, PeeWee & Cheeky.

  Hi Koko!
Bon Jour Koko!
How are you doing? I am so excited because my mommy is going to see a new birdy today. A cockatoo! A nice lady called from the Parrot rescue and said this birdy needs a new forever home. So I may get a playmate! Mommy is excited too I can tell. How are you? Anything fun happening? I bet you have very nice weather down has been cold and snowy here but mommy says it is finally going to start warming up. It was 60 yesterday and nice and sunny. Mommy say's it will start getting warmer and warmer. YEAH!
Well here is a vote for you. Come and see me

  Hi Back!
Hey Koko! Thanks for your vote and your note! My mommy leaves the TV on for me too. I like watching Animal planet and I love Country mucic too. I like to dance when mommy sings her favorite songs. I love Jimmy Buffet too. Singing about Cheeseburgers sure makes me hungry! Wow you know french? My mommy knows french too! She used to live there long before she had me. She went to cooking school there and became a chef so as you can guess I get some pretty yummy treats! Montana is our Husky and she is always looking at the treats I thow away on the bottom of my cage...I think she is looking at me too sometimes. Mommy does not trust her at all so she can never play in MY play area. She has her own house too so she can't get into trouble! My other furry friend is a Westie named Miss Lilly and she LOVES me I can cuddle with her! She grew up with an Umbrella Cockatoo and they used to play tag. My mommy has had a lot of birds! She read the blog from Zazoo's Mommy. She had some good advise. Lots of things can bother us..DON"T use the self cleaning oven or ANY oven cleaners around us. We must be out of the house. Teflon is bad if it is heated to 400 degrees or to the "Smoking " point. My mommy does not really use teflon. Since she is a chef she has her fancy bird friendly pans. She says to get Sally Blanchards "Parrot Companion Quarterly" and Behaviour book. EXCELLENT material and great ideas and advise.
My mommy thinks a Grey like you would be a great playmate for me. She is looking for a rescue bird because she thinks there are too many that need homes instead of getting a baby. I agree. How big is your cage?? Do you chew a lot of toys? What is your favorite toy to play with?? So do you like all your human friends or just one? My mommy has lots of questions about you Greys!
Come see me again!
Au revoir mon ami de featherd!

  Hi Koko and new birdie parents: Thanks for asking. Wow, I bet that is fun with two dogs and two cats. WELL; It all depends on training and how they are all raised. Our dog is a 13 year old male black pomeranian who never showed interest in the bird, it's opposite here, I have to watch so the bird does not hurt himm hahaha. And I had someones' cat here for awhile to keep till she found a place for him. HE was declawed and was a very sweet cat, never showed interest in bothering the bird, BUT it made me nervous, cause a cat is a cat and their claws can cause infections on a birds' skin if it's cut open and for big dogs, I didn't have any more big dogs when I got ZAzoo. One to ask for that would BE CHESTER , on my page, click On chester, he is a green cheeked amazona and they have two large dogs and live in New Orleans. For other things. I did alot of reading, from libraries and bought alot of bird books and of course I get the BIRD TALK magazine, if you don't already, I would. It's so good and informative. The very important DO'S and DON'TS with bird. USing non stick cookware of any kind can kill a bird. It's (telfon_ it's on non-stick pans, non-stick grills, even ironing boards, keep them far as you can. Some hair dryers, and keep aerosols far away , and No plug-ins, and candles I use only with window open. No avocados, they are poisonous, onions and garlic may be harmful. I clean my house when he is in bed in his sleeping cage so no fumes can reach him and I use as little as I can. good place for info is on the web. One site that has great info is BIRDS N WAYS. Oh don't use any metals in cage that can have zinc, they can get metal poisoning. Please feel free to ask me more specific questions, cause there is alot hahahaha. I don't mind. Thanks for visiting :)

  HI Koko!
My name is Stich. I am a Hanhs Macaw. I am smaller than the other macaws but I act like a big bird. Haahaahaa!
I live with a Sieberian Husky too. My mommy is very carefull cause Sieberians are sneeky and they can eat birds..YIKES :~{ So my mommy is very carefull with me and the dog. We never get to play in the same room. Is your dog nice to you? My mommy LOVES African Greys and she wants to have one come live with us so I can have a playmate I can talk to. I can talk human! I say lots of funny things. I tell the dog to "lay dow right now" and I always tell myself "what a good boy" I am. Hee hee hee.... I crack myself up!
Please come and visit me!
