I was in a really big pet store with all the other birds. I didn't like where we were set up, way in the back of the store in a darkened corner. Barely anyone who worked there ever came back there. Because the pet store was in a very busy mall, there were always mean people coming in and poking at me and the other birds, but especially me. One day, my mommy (before she was my mommy) was there when 3 older teenage boys came in with a long, scary, pokey toy that made scary noises (bad words), and started poking and teasing me with it. They thought it was very funny, but I didn't. My mommy gave them mean looks until they went away. Then she stayed and talked to me very nicely. She began coming back every day. She wanted to protect me and spend some nice time with me. She thought I always looked so sad and that made her sad. Then one day she came with a man and she looked soooo happy. I was taken out of my cage and she held me, I was so good for her. Then I went home. Mommy and daddy call me their little rescue bird...I think they are right. I love my new home and I never get poked any more.. Awards

Hi! My name is Nahahni (na-HAW-knee)

I am a Congo African Grey from Edmonton, AK.


10 years old   M

Congo African Grey

I like snap peas and carrots.

On my play gym on top of my cage and on the floor with my mommy.

My sister, Morgan. She thinks she is tougher than me....if only my mom would let me have a go at her......

She showers me with kisses and massages my head.....that feels sooooooo good. She also knows not to touch my tail, unlike other smaller people in the house....grrrrr

I only eat food from a see-through bowl. Also, I make these bone-chilling, low-toned gobbley sounds. My mom thinks I learned it from the pet store because she thinks it kind of sounds like people talking in the distance. I know the truth, I do it to creep everyone out, especially at night time when mom's watching a scary movie... .hahaha!.

That story brings a tear to my eye. I have worked in many pet stores, and have seen things like that all the time. However because of "customer service" you can't say anything without fear of angering the shopper!? (or the boss.) I have given in many a time, I can't help it. I wish that something could be done! But on a better note I love your birds name, very original! May I ask what it means? Please visit me and my babies...

Come visit me, Sirona, Trance & Frankie.

  Tuki says welcome
Dear Nahahni, I have a funny name, too. My first dad says Tuki is the hebrew word for bird or parrot. What does your name mean? I live with my first dad's daughter and her family, 2 teenage girls and her husband. He is scared of me but let me come live there any how! I also own a boxer and a cat. They are curious about me and can't figure out whey I can talk and they can not. I say all kinds of things, some in my first dad's voice, some like my new mom. I call for family members by saying Come Here and their names. It is pretty funny. Welcome to the birdchannel. There are lots of nice birds to talk to. ♥ Tuki

Come visit me, Tuki.

  Hi Nahahni
Love the name! So you asked if I liked to be goofy? What's goofy? Mom just says I'm "not right". She calls me her "little A.D.D. bird". Hmmm, maybe that's goofy! I visited Morgan yesterday. Thought I'd visit you today. Here's a vote from ME! Birdie hugs, Clyde

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.
