We were going to purchase a baby bird from a breeder, but the bird had become a family pet. We decided to adopt a bird in need of a new family. An ad stood out, and that was a 1 1/2 y/o bird named Adoff. Awards

Hi! My name is Adoff

I am an African Grey from Millville, NJ.

8 years old   M

African Grey

Macaroni cooked and uncooked, apples, peanuts, cashews, crackers and bananas

During the day, the lower section of his house, at night time he heads up to the top of his house.

getting a bath, when his toy doesn't do what he wants, his bird buddy, Seymour, squawking.

I LOVE to mimic my Mom,...though I prefer being played with by my Dad.

Gets all cutsey with visitors so they will feed him a peanut. If he doesn't like a new toy....he won't touch it, get near anything by it. Asks Seymour if he wants to go to bed when he squawks..

My kids may grow up, but Adoff will always be in his hilarious, terrible 2's..

Hi Adoff!

My name is Lucy. I am an African grey just like you. I am a bit older than you (by about 40 years) but I don't let age difference stand in the way of making a new friend!

Like you, I share my house and humans with a mini-macaw. Dante acts like a big brother to me even though we about the same size and I am much older than he is. He protects me whenever a new human enters our territory by spreading his wings and fluffing up all of his feathers. It is all for show, though. He is afraid of almost everything but I appreciate his efforts. We have been together for a long time. We got adopted by this nice family just a couple of months ago and we are still getting acclimated to each other. The good news is that we love each other and Dante and I will have a *forever* home.

I love everybody. My Dad says that I have never bitten anyone and that I am "constitutionally incapable" of hurting anyone. (Whatever that means!) I have really bad cataracts and have a difficult time getting around, so I don't fly anymore. I love to do *walkabouts*: I walk all around a room, exploring all of the nooks and crannies. Whenever I encounter a new object, I say, "Ooooooo" and make a clucking sound.

I love cashews but I HATE baths! Dad makes me take one anyhow but I always try to walk out of the water. Dad says that I make a noise that sounds like a cat when I am put into the water. Cats must not like water, either!

Stop by sometime. I can tell you stories about the *good ol' days* abd we can share some cashews. I promise to show you all of the interesting objects around the room.


Come visit me, Cookie, Toffee, Folger, Dante, Lucy & Peanut.

I've learned new words! When my Daddy walks in the door, I say "Hi Daddy", and when Daddy isn't home, I say.."Daddy home?". I just love my Daddy. I also like to go "Quack, Quack". I love when Mommy sings me Old MacDonald's Farm. I haven't quite got the EIEIOOOO down yet, but I'm working on it!

Come visit me, Adoff & Seymour.

  I'm a Good Bird!
I've been a very good bird this week. I step up for my Mommy on a perch, and they bought me this huge Java play stand. I've been a very good bird. You should see me wag my tail feathers!

Come visit me, Adoff & Seymour.

  What a Bird
Adoff fasinates me...the way he picks up new words every day by just listening. One thing. I think a female in his past household was not as loving to him. He loves my husband, and though I feed and clean the cage...he wants to bite me. Any suggestions on how to get on a level where he kinda likes me? Thanks

Come visit me, Adoff & Seymour.

  Happy May Day!
It's May Day! Though my buddy Seymour would rather fly around the May Pole, I'd prefer to tear apart all those colorful ribbons and then munch on the tree bark. That's a birdy May Day.

Come visit me, Adoff & Seymour.

  I like to make my Mom sing.....
I have a guitar and when you push the buttons, it plays a song. I bob up and down to let my Mom know I want her to sing to me. I want her to sing ALL the time. My favorite song to sing is..."I like to eat, eat, eat APPLES!" I really give apples my all when I sing. :D

Come visit me, Adoff & Seymour.

  Hello Adoff
Kudos to you for adopting an adult parrot. So many birds needs homes!!!! I work in a parrot store and we have consignment birds that people give up for various reasons. So many people just don't understand the commitment when they adopt a bird. I am glad that Adoff has found his forever home. He looks just like our "Rocket" birdie. Fly on in for a visit soon!
