Hi! My name is Slater

I am a Congo African Grey from Pearland, TX.

Big Boy
Big Nose
Dirty Beak

6 years old   M

Congo African Grey

My daddy gives me milk sometimes. Shhhhhhh don't tell mommy she'll yell at daddy. Daddy doesn't give me much just a taste. I also love cheese (again don't tell mommy). I really love nuts and I love mommy's dinner.

I love to hang out on my boing and my java swing. I've claimed these as mine and no one else can use them! Ever!

I hate to go to bed and always give mommy a hard time going in my cage. I know I need my sleep but I just love playing sooo much I just don't want to stop to rest!

Mom lets me play in the birdroom all day and I only have to go in my cage to sleep. She feeds me healthy yummy food and takes me outside for a bath and some sunshine

I think I was a bat before I was a bird because I love to hang upside down. I think I may have been trapeze artist too because I like to swing by my feet, flap my wings and how high I can go! Mommy and daddy laugh when I do this so I think I will keep doing it. I love to beat up my toys and make lots and lots of noise doing it!

I hate taking baths but my mommy makes me do it anyway.

  Good Day
Well we had a cook out earlier this afternoon, and as usual, pops managed to burn the hot dogs so you couldn't tell what they were. Mom said that she making dinner, RESERVATIONS..... And I can't say I don't blame her. Sometimes pops cooking leaves a lot to be desired.

  Hello Slater!
Kelly here with a Happy Saturday greeting! I hope this finds your world blessed with glorious sunshine and the chance to enjoy some time outdoors. I know I won't be getting to do that myself as we're currently in a temperature slump right now. Had some 80 degree stuff going there for a few days but then Wham-O, 38 again. That's okay, the rain that came with it will surely help make the grass and trees keep their spring green perked up.

I love the painting on your bird room walls!! And I love the pose you're in, there on the end of that rope. You're obviously a NUT! Look at you, you bat! Thank you for sharing the pictures of your yard and the view you have while in your aviary. I bet it's a riot to watch your family enjoying the pool. That'd be some rather amusing entertainment. Then again, I've heard that some humans lounge on a floaty in the middle of the pool and rarely move. I guess that could still be entertaining, staring at them, wondering when they're actually going to show some sign of life!

Chat later, Slater~

  Hello Slater
I thought this would be the perfect time to write to you; everybirdie else is tucked in for the night which gives me mom all to myself. It's nearly 9 o'clock at my house and I'm still up and chattering away. I won't talk if Dad's in the same room but since he's down the hall I'm babbling away as if I've just been released from a vow of silence! Most nights I'm up until about 8 but every once in awhile I stay up later. There are times too that I'm tucked in at sundown. I practically have to be scrapped off mom's fingers because I won't step down. It's like I'm trying to tell her, "Pay attention, Mom, wrong bird you're putting to bed this early."

I live on the very western edge of Illinois about 3/4 the way up. I refer to this stretch of the world as the Prairie; it's rather flat in most places and covered in agricultural fields. Our summers get hot and humid but no where as hot as yours do in TX I'm sure. It was so nice here today I managed to get to spend about three hours in my aviary. I guess since I'm now getting to go out there I can put some pictures of it back up on my page. I take those pics off during the winter - they're too painful to look at!

Thank you for your visit. And thanks for the sliver of sunny time you're willing to share with me. I may need to ask for some more in the coming week; we're expecting gray cloudy days for awhile.

Chat later~

  Hello Slater~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! Still cool and windy here but that is about normal for the northwest in the spring!
Mom reads me a bedtime story before she cleans my cage up at night. Then we sit and play for a while and then she just picks me up and puts me in the cage. It's very cool that you dad puts a treat in the cage to get you in there. I wonder if I could get mom to do that!hehehehe
Enjoy the day!

  Hello Slater
Kelly here to welcome you to the BC. It's wonderful to have such a handsome Grey as yourself joining us. Being a Grey myself, I'm especially excited to say Glad you're here!

It sounds like your days are spent very much like mine- free to come and go as you please. I too have a bird room where I can hang out wherever I want although perching in the potted plants is frowned up. While I don't resist being tucked in for the night, I do prefer to stay up later with the family. It's almost my favorite time of day because the rest of my flock (except the other Grey that lives here) is asleep which means mom is all mine. Well except for that part I have to share with that other Grey that lives here. I'm sure Saber will come by your page and welcome you too, but lucky me, I beat him! (We have separate pages which is why you won't see his picture along side mine in the family section.)

I imagine Texas weather is divine this time of year. If you wouldn't mind, enjoy a sliver of warm sunny time for me. I'm only getting smidgeons of outdoor time yet, catching the sun at its warmest which is still a bit of a challenge.

So nice to meet you. Again, welcome to the Bird Channel!

  Hello Slater~
Welcome to the BC! I know you are going to love it here!!

I always throw a fuss at bedtime too! I get down on the bottom of the night cage and squawk and stomp around! It doesn't last long but I have to let mom know that I'm not happy about going to bed. Do you sleep with a cover on your cage? I do but I know lots of birds don't.

Enjoy your day and it was very nice to meet you!
Hugs and a welcome vote ~ Sugar

  Welcome Slater!
It's GREYT t'have you and your flockmates here with us. I remember Pico tellin' me about you and your visit to her house. Lucky me, now I get to visit with you too now that you've signed up and logged into the Bird Channel. I've got a couple of Grey flockmates who will be excited to introduce themselves. Kelly will be impressed by your wingspan, Saber will be glad there's another Grey guy in town.

The McFlock is lookin' forward to getting to know you all better.

  Hi Slater..
My name is Rusty, I'm also a CAG and three years old today..As I was reading your profile page, I'm thinking me and this guy have a lot in common, I love to do all the things you talked about. My best friend is Romeo the Umbrella Cockatoo, he was here first. I was 4 months old when Mommy brought me home. I have this great cargo net that I love to play on, hang upside down, sometimes to give Mommy kisses.,. I'll eat practically anything, Mom says I'm the best veggie eater in the house. We have an outside Aviary that we spend most of our time in when the weather is nice. I don't dance but I can sing a little, and I'm rarely quiet, at night Romeo likes to go into a night cage, and I like to go into his cage to sleep..I'm rarely in my cage unless Mom has to leave for some reason, most of us stay out all the time..We have a puppy named Gabby and I love to give her orders, like com'ere, stay, or lay down..I hope you enjoy being on BC, you meet lot's of nice birds and their families, aunt Cindy and Pico are our very dear friends, we just adore Pico..I've babbled on enough for this visit, enjoy yourself..Hugs from Rusty
