I have always wanted an African Grey but could never afford one due to paying rent every month. I recently got engaged and moved into my fiance's house - no more rent to pay! I am now the proud owner of a baby Congo :).

Hi! My name is Lindy

I am a Congo African Grey from Williamsville, NY.

Lin Lin; Lindy Bird; Sweet Pea; Lindy Lou

7 years old   M

Congo African Grey

I still enjoy getting a bit of my baby formula! I easily eat big bird food but the formula still makes me wiggle my tail in excitement! I also really enjoy shelled peanuts - I love cracking the shells open and finding the edible surprise waiting for me inside!!!

I really enjoy my play top cage. And of course if I am wearing my bird diaper I get to sit on top of the couch and play with my toys on there.

I fuss when my Mom puts that darn bird diaper on me! She calls it a FLIGHT SUIT but it's a bird diaper and I don't like it! BUT, I know I have to wear it if I want to hang out on the couch with her and/or play on the living room carpet. I see her use that cleaner POOP OFF all the time so I don't understand why she just doesn't use THAT incase I have an accident on the rug or furniture. Dumb bird diaper! Look how silly I look in it in my photo! If any of my fellow greys see this photo I will be so embarrasssed!

My Mom bought me when I was only 6 weeks old. The pet store could not release me to her until I was 12 weeks old and fully weaned. Therefore, for the remaining 6 weeks until I could go home, she came into the pet store atleast 5 days a week after work and held me on her lap in a warm fuzzy baby blanket! She talked to me and cuddled with me for a good hour or longer. Everyone that walked by us commented about how they have never seen an african grey that loved to cuddle so much! That fleecy baby blanket was just so warm and comforting! When it came time for me to leave the pet store I was so bonded with my owner that I wasn't scared at all being in my new home!

Atleast once during the day I get this incredible urge to flap my wings wildly. Once the air gets under them I find myself suddenly taking off in flight and flying into the kitchen. I have not mastered landing yet so I typically crash into the wall by the pet dog's water dish. Sometimes I even land in the water. My Mom keeps telling me that's not a suitable "bird bath"!.

If you're happy and you know it shake your tail feathers!.

  Auntie in Texas
Hi Lindy & Calvin, This is your Aunt in the big state of Texas. If it were not for y'all & your Mom going in to the Pet store to get supplies for y'all I would not have gotten an Armadillo for my new puppy dog for Valentines Day. She just could not resist picking up Roadkill for Sasha. So, Here I am Thanking you both for needing supplies. Give Mom a big kiss for me & Sasha. She loves it. She is always squeeking it & driving us batty because she always does it when we are trying to listen to something on TV. Love to All Auntie

Cathy, Hutto, TX.

  Hi! Here's a quick vote for you! I'm starting to feel more at home today! I'm playing and vocalizing more. Mom gave me fresh papaya today with breakfast. It's WAY better than the dry stuff. Do you like it, too? - Wisdom

  Hi Lindy
Thanks for your vote, mom says you are a beautiful gray. Mom has a bit of a problem she loves all birds, Dad says if she had her way we would have this huge aviary filled with bunches of me and my siblings and they would live in a tent....hahaha....Daddy is so silly because that's the way it's supposed to be someday he'll learn!! Hope you have a great week going to go and vote for your other half too now....Dusty Rose

  Thanks for visiting me! I love your flight suit! My mom called me Cooper for the first few days I was home but it just didn't fit me. Then my mom thought of Wisdom and the whole family just went...YEAH! It was one of those things. I'm still a baby at 7 months old but I intend to be very wise someday! Nice to meet you! Vote back at 'cha!

  My flight suit is horrible!
Mom keeps trying to put that horrible flight suit on me and I keep trying to chew it. The entire time I have it on, I turn my head around and chew and chew and chew on it. Mom tries to distract me but I still chew on it and pull at the top part where it closes. I think mom gave up on putting it on me since I haven't worn it in a couple of days. he he he. I told you I wasn't going to wear it. Now mom's newest venture is making me birdie bread. She makes me crazy. I guess she thinks I am going to eat it just because she puts it in my bowl...we will see. Dad built me a new play area over the weekend. I was down in mom's office on my new play area and I thought she was ignoring me so I flew onto her head...he he he. She isn't ignoring me now...he he he. Talk to you later!

  Hello from Tuki
Dear Lindy, I was about 1 year old before I started to talk. I think one has to listen a lot before one can confess to being able to talk! I talk a lot now, especially when I can see people but they are not looking right at me. When they come to my cage, I can stop talking. It works every time! Have a great day. Mom works nights at the hospital, so sometimes I dictate to her and she catches up on my blogs while at work! ♥ Tuki

Come visit me, Tuki.

  I am so traumatized!
My mommy put my birdie diaper on me last night after we read your note. I was so mad that I put 3 holes in her shirt. She made me wear it for a couple of minutes. She said I did good, gave me kisses and a peanut BUT I am still upset with her. Now I know how you feel.

  Hi Lindy!
Don't feel bad, my mommy bought me one of those birdy diapers but she hasn't gotten it on me yet....he he he. She doesn't know it but she may never get it on me. She says I am a brat. I, too, like to eat my baby formula but my mean mommy said it is time to be a big girl. But guess what?!? I still con mommy into peeling the skins off of my blueberries. I think you look cute in your picture!

Dear Lindy, I think you look cute in your flight suit. Don't listen to anyone who tells you otherwise! I am happy it is warming up. I am out on my screened in porch perch today. Gotta love the sunshine on your feathers! Have fun with your mom. You are lucky to have her, and vice versa! ♥ Tuki

  Hi Lindy & Calvin
Yes I did read how Quakers are illegle in some states. I think it is a shame to harm any kind of birds. If my mom had the money and room she would have every kind od bird there is to be had. she love all us little critter. Isn't it wonderful how God gave us the brains he did. We birds are so smart. Here is a vote for you.

Come visit me, Rosey & Smokey.
