Winky has a sad story like most parrots, he has a feather plucking problem and most people do not want to deal with a problem bird and he isn't "pretty" (he is beautiful to me) anyway he is only 3 years old and I am probably the 5th house he has lived in, this will be his last! he came from a hoarding situation, he is so friendly and loving and smart!.

Hi! My name is Winky

I am an African Grey from Ashland, KY.

Winky Dink

3 years old   M

African Grey

Winky loves scrambled eggs, and peanuts, he loves to eat! when I eat he says "good stuff' so I will share!

On his therapeutic perch, living room

vaccum cleaners, crying children

she loves me no matter what I look like, she buys me toys, talks to me, she even rearranged her living room so I could live in the living room with her! she is a pretty good cook!

Winky has only been with us 2 weeks, we are still learning, I can tell you his vocabulary is very expensive and everytime my dogs bark he says shut up!.

God so loved the birds,
he created trees
Man loved the birds
he created caged

  Hi Winky
I pick at my feathers too but we are both lucky to have mamas that love us unconditionally and maybe once your mama figures out the food allergies then things might turn around for you...sure hope so. My picking is from having a bacterial infection at 8 months old and a habit now. Mom does all my cooking for me and watches for toe tapping too which we ekkies do. Congratulations on winning botd and enjoy it to the fullest
For the day at the castle sure goes fast for some reason!

Come on, and I'll show you the bird cave!

  Good evening, Winky.
Lucky, from Briarwood, NY, here. Congrats on winning BOTD. I was just reading your how we met. Awww, you aren't an ugly parrot. You're beautiful just the way you are. I am an African-Grey and I, too, have feather problems. There was a time when I had lost almost all of my feathers. Then I started having seizures. My daddy took me to the vet and I was diagnosed with calcium and vitamin D3 insufficiency. It causes seizures in Greys and causes feather loss. But now that I'm on calcium and vitamin D3, my seizures are under control and I have grown most of my feathers. It is also typical for Greys to be feather pickers. Daddy's friend who has two Quaker Parrots, one of whom daddy gave to her, told daddy that one of her Quakers is a feather picker. But that isn't as common in other parrots as it is with us Greys. So, you're not alone. Well, it was nice to have flown on the squawk and share with you. With that, I leave you with beaky kisses, wing hugs and a vote. Lucky.

Come visit me, Audie. PLEASE PRAY FOR MY SKIN AUNT., Lucky. PLEASE PRAY FOR MY FRIEND'S SKIN AUNT., LattieJr. RIP:12/27/2012. PRAY FOR MY SKIN AUNT., Alex. PLEASE PRAY FOR MY SKIN AUNT. & Lattie Sr. RIP: 7/25/09. PRAY FOR MY SKIN AUNT..

  Congratulations on BOTD
from our flock in Quebec! Our mom knows all about birds that are not pretty because they pluck. It is not what you are on the outside but who you are on the inside. Our Mom has a home rescue and does what she can to take in unwanted birds. Many stay with her when they have special needs but those who can be rehomed are found a good loving home... and mom screens people well, so that they do not come back to her, which has happened on occasion. Please come and visit us - we love making new friends.

Come visit me, Leroy, Little Bit & Chloe - Thank you everybirdy!!, Gizmo - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, Max, Jasper - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, Micky - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, PEPPER-Thanks for BOTM!, TiPaul - Who was 8000??? Who will be vote 9000?, Floop - Thanks for BOTD!, Marley - Thanx everybirdy 4 BOTD Carrot cake 4 all, Zak - Thank you everybirdy for BOTD! & Lee-Roial RIP - Thanks for remembering me..
