Hi! My name is Casper

I am a Congo African Grey from Norridge, IL.

Baby,Sweetheart- .

8 years old   M

Congo African Grey

Carrots, apples, and I'll love you if you give me an animal cracker.

My play stand or my rope perch.

I don't like it if I'm not put to bed by a reasonable time.

She loves me even when I talk too much.

When I feel ignored I will yell "Mom!" in the same voice as the 5yr old boy who lives with me..

Shut up Roger!.

It's a converted screen room. Lots of perches, a big bath tub, well, my size, and room to flap my wings and fly around. It's fun, and I love it.

Another weekend, more play time. can it get any bett than that? I don't think so. I'm going out to my flight room in a bit, and play out there. Pops really did a good job on it. He finished the fountain yesterday, and now I have running water to play in. I really enjoy it outside, I have neighbors that visit me. My OLDER, little brother like it too. We have a good time. See ya tomorrow, bye for now.

Come visit me, Squak.

  To the parronts:
I submitted Polly's story to BirdTalk magazine, and I've really been thinking about one of the lines I wrote- "Pluckers are often overlooked because they are not considered "beautiful." It's really a true statement and it breaks my heart. People shy away from naked birds because they are not considered "beautiful?" Like a lack of feathers has anything to do with a bird's personality, or a bird that's not fully feathered has more "issues" than a fully feathered one. In my experience, the pluckers I've met have been the sweetest birds. Kiwi and Polly especially, are HUGE sweethearts and they are just as silly and active as fully feathered birds are. I believe that the bond between a plucker and a good owner can be even stronger once trust is gained than the relationship between a what's considered "normal" bird and a good owner. See, most pluckers were abused or neglected and have lived without love for so long, that once they finally are loved, they don't take it for granted. They cherish the time and attention I give them even when they're not in a cuddley mood. And you can tell when you look into their eyes, that they are so greatful for what they have and receive. It makes me sad that people think pluckers are "ugly," and miss out on the love they have to offer because they don't want them. This morning, Polly and I spent a great deal of time together as he cuddled up under my chin, layed on his side, and fell asleep while he let me scratch his head and rub under his wing. I got so emotional just enjoying that time with him, that I had tears coming out of my eyes, and I kept telling my husband how I can't believe his previous owner had so many problems with him. I was told before I took him home that he was aggressive, mean, a screamer, and overly demanding. He is SOOOO sweet, protective yes but not aggressive, and he's the quiest bird in my flock. He also enjoys his alone time and is not clung to me 24/7.

I've decided to start writing down my experiences and thoughts on my dealings with parrots and keep them collected and eventually publish a book so that people can read and learn from my experiences. Hopefully, it will open people's eyes a bit more, and for the people like me out there, provide a good read they can relate to.
