****Hey just letting you all know mom's started a yahoo group for bird owners. Its at http://pets. groups.yahoo. com/group/NH_Pa- rrots/ even in you dont live in NH please feel free to join**** Brett is actually a Greater Vasa Parrot (it wasn't listed as an option to pick from). I came across his owner when I joined a parrot group on yahoo. His owner was looking to re-home him due to the fact that she has been having some health problems recently. So I inquired about the bird and found out that they were located only 20 min from my house. I went to visit and fell in love. Brett is a feather chewer (mostly his tail and flight feathers). But I was told that when his owner got him he was missing most of his feahters. So he has come a long way. I am his third and last home! I've had him now three weeks and the hardest thing is that there is just not that much informaion on this species. My vet said that this was the first Vasa he had ever seen. I'm working with Brett and my vet and hopefully he will be able to overcome his feather chewing, but if not I will still love him for the bird that he is..

Hi! My name is Brett - Greater Vasa Parrot

I am an African Grey from Keene, NH.

Brett Brett, crow, Mr. Cookie Pants, Brown Eyes.

17 years old   M

African Grey

I like apples, bananas, and I adore peanuts, I'll pretty much do anything for one.

I like to hang out on my big play tree. It's covered in toys. I spend lots of time there.

I hate it when people try to pet me when I'm on my play tree.

She loves me even and adopted me even though I am no longer a "baby", and I have some issues. She is patient and never makes me do things I don't want to, plus she knows when to give me my space, but still works on helping me overcome some of my fears.

I like to chase my shadow on the wall, tapping it with my beak. Don't ask why. I love, love, love to dance on my perch..

  Hello From Sterling Gray from Michigan.
Don't worry about your feather chewing, it's what is inside that counts!
You are an unusual and great parrot.
Remember- GREATER vasa!

Come visit me, Sterling Gray.

  I saw your name on another page and thought I would drop in. I had never seen a Greater Vasa so I looked up some info and you are a very interesting breed. You come all the way from Madagascar! That's cool! It's a good thing you are a boy because Greater Vasa girls are supposed to be pretty nasty! You have a great day and maybe we can be friends!

  Hello from The Konawa Oklahoma Gang
Hi Friends, news from our flock. Cotton Ball, speaking. I am getting my beak color now. Mom thinks I might be a girl. St.Patrick is lovin' the BOTW attention. He is drivin' Fortune crazy. He pecks on the PC all day and teases Fortune by (disobeying??) his nightly call for all to go to sleep. hehe. Mom tried to get new pics but Lonnie kept flying.. he likes the one on his page. Slate and Mica are chewing up paper. Yesterday, Fortune took a walk and played with the kids down the block. Well, it is time for LIMERICK OF THE DAY: An Amazon friend of ours Paco, stopped at a cafe in Morocco. His yellow crown down, he said with a frown,no where can I find just one taco.....The Lovies are chewing off your vote button as we speak.....TTFN....

  Hello from the Oklahoma Gang
Patrick here, It is great to meet another bird like you. We had not heard of your breed until we joined BC. What is your life like? We have watched Fortune dancin to Old rock classic songs. He sings "I dropped it, I dropped it" no matter what the song is...Big duffuss. He thinks he is singing along with the music. I guess he is ....in a way. Well vote for you and your flock... Jammin out to the tunes....St. Patrick and the gang....

  Hi Brett from Sammy the Greyt
Mommy saw your breed and had to check you out. You are a Beautiful bird. I just got a roomie that had chewed up his tail feathers. Sounds silly but Mommy brought Oliie in front of the mirror and told him how pretty he was and that he should not chew his feathers and did this every day and he stopped. We think he was not getting his 12 hours of quiet sleep or any attention either so we think everything helped. Ollie is in full feather and we have worked out almost all of his negative actions. hope this helps.

have a greyt day Sammy (:>)=

Come visit me, Scooter & Sammy.

  Hi Brett
Maude has been Hormonal...wanna come and help a guy out? I think she is a gal that needs 2 boyfriends, that harlot, lol. She grabbed my wing on Tuesday and wouldn't let go of it until Uncle Jack gave her a Filbert nut. She loves me, th9ough. I give her the what for sometimes. Mom is proud of me for standing up for myself more. I have been feeding her alot, and she was going in her nestbox. Maybe she will be in condition before I am out of condition this year, lol. Hope you have a happy holiday season~~Harold

  Hello again from Daisy!
Hey Mr. Cookie Pants, I like that name! I just flew on by your fibs pages, too, and left you all votes. My Mommy has been in training all week, so she hasn't even been NEAR the computer. Lucy and I have hardly even seen her this week! Boy, were we ever lonesome! We're not used to Mommy being gone ALL day. But she's back now, so that's a really good thing! It's still nice weather here, but I'm sure it'll be cooling down soon. We've had a great summer and I've enjoyed my summer cottage immensely. Mommy got Lucy a summer cottage, too. And even though there's not too much of summer left, since it is still warm, Lucy and I are enjoying our time out on the porch for as long as it lasts. Winter lasts a LONG time. ~~ Your Friend, Daisy

Come visit me, Mr. Finnegan - I'm thankful for my BC friends., Daisy - R.I.P. - BOTW 9/17-9/23/07 & Miss Lucy Blue - I'm thankful for my BC friends..

Yes Mom is still interested in Greater Vasas, so is Aunt Bonnie, she has Maude and Harold. Hope everybirdy in your family is doing well. Our summer was hot, then it is now autumn and chilly today but we had 9 days of 90 in September. I see you get mail from Maude and Harold, that is good. I think we should all write to the president and congressmen till we get a bird holiday in August. See you tommorrow, I hope. Tweet dreams.xoxoxo

  Hiya Brett
I love your color, Brett. It's such a soft gray. You are very lucky to have found a great home to settle into with a family that loves you just the way you are. I hope all that love helps you to learn to chill-out and not chew your beuatiful feathers so much. My Mom went away for a week this summer and I too started pulling on my tail feathers just for spite. Then I discovered that chewing on a piece of an old T-shirt was even better, and so when I get upset, I do that now instead. Anyone's shirt collar will do in a pinch! We are a complicated bunch, huh? Good thing their are humans who put up with our "stuff." Stop by any time, Brett. I voted for your, too, by the way. Siggy

Come visit me, Siegfried.

  HIYO BRETT
I love your nickname,"CROW". Maybe now that you have your forever home the rest of your feathers will grow back too. I pull every feater that I can reach, I don't know why. Everyone here loves me and I love them back. I'd like to see a photo of your big bird tree that you hang out on. I play on Wonderland all day with my brothers, Kilroy & Waldo-Pepper and my little sister, B.B.Blue. She's special too, Mommy Kit rescued her. She's a Eastern Bluebird that was poisoned along with her whole family: They all died and she was very slow getting better and growing up. She was only 3 days old when it happened, so I do not think that she remembers anyone except us as her flock. So you see, we all are very lucky to have a Forever home, just like you.
BYE BYE BIRDY & KILROY WAS HERE TOO
