A best friend of my parront's Father was dying and asked asked us to foster me until we could find a loving home. They'd never had a parrot, but Donna had years of experience with raptors at the Alabama Wildlife Center so, said they'd help me out. Clearly, they were not impervious to my gorgeousness or my not so subtle charms! Other Grey owners told them it could be years before I saw my way to accept them, but I loved them right away and decided my first day in the new house to make them love me! What human waterbag can resist a beaky-face? What human doesn't enjoy my singing, dancing and talking up a storm? I worked them beautifully and now this beaky faced bird friend has a loving home for life! Yay! Chirpy Whoo hoo!. Awards

Hi! My name is Dorian Grey

I am an African Grey from Hoover, AL.

They call me Beaky-Face, Boo Boo Beakers & Feather Pants, but they are really thinking shall we say, of more colorful names when I'm being a naughty bird!

13 years old   M

African Grey

Apples, almonds & pecans. My regular foods are Beak Appetit, Avi Cakes & ZuPreem pellets, Veggie & Fruit Nutri-Berries and I love pasta and brown rice. One of the best treats is a frozen "niblets" ear of corn that I shred, chunk and throw everything and on eeverything near my cage!

In my pretty Cages By Design cage, on my birdie fun time gym, but "cuddle-bird" with my Poppie is my favorite spot.

If you aren't paying careful attention to glorious me and are messing with stuff in my cage while I'm in there, you will earn a peck on the head and a lost chunk of hair. Whoo hoo! I love to be a big sweet cuddle bird, but never touch that sexy red bootie feathers of mine or I will getcha! I don't cotton much to pushy strangers but I like to sing and dance to most everything else my parronts play.

Mama is an archaeozoologis- t and since she works from, she is always entertaining me by singing, playing birdie CD's for me, and she talks to me quite a bit too. I really like that she explains whatever is going on around me. I love my Mama Donna, but I adore my Poppie and am a Daddy's bird for sure!

I don't much like bath time, but am learning I pretty much have no choice in the matter! I dig it when Mama puts ice cubes in my water feeder and will splish-splash..

I prefer to reject your reality and to substitute my own!
Chirpy Chirps Crackers!
Dorian "Windybird" Grey

  Hi Dorian Grey
You sure are a pretty bird yourself there and so talented too!! Did you ever eat fresh apricots? Mom got some today at the fruit stand and first time Gus ever ate one but he sure did like it. Then skin sister gave us some cherries off the tree and he never had them before either but sure did enjoy them. Now Chi chi just put her beaky in it and shook her head like it was the worse thing she has ever tasted but she sure did love the paper bags mom gave her today. She already has holes in it hihihihi. Come visit with us my friend know we enjoy your company anytime. Catch the vote as we say cheech to you later.

Come visit me, ~~Gus~~ & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

Thanks for the compliments I sent you a vote because you are just too cute. I am going to be busy building or more like designing my outside flight and fun house. I hope he is ready because I am worse than his wife.

  Hi Dorian...Caymus here.
Thanks for stopping by with the congrats! I love meeting new friends! my friend, the end is near, and so I face the final curtain...ah, well, WHAT A WEEK! Wow, I never expected to be BOTW but it sure was fun. My mom, Peachy and I have had such a blast celebrating with everybirdy and their parronts. And the reason it's been the best week of my life (so far) is because of YOU! Mom has finished rubbing my feet and tomorrow it's Bar-B-Q time! (hey dad, don't forget the watermellon!) And in honor of all those who have died for our country, for those who have served our country, and for who are still putting their lives on the line every day, please join me in a moment of silence tomorrow (any time during the day, doesn't matter when) to salute them and their families. Now as I two-step on out of here, I'm leaving big birdy hugs and of course, a vote for you! (Ladies and gentlebirds, Caymus has left the building.)

Come visit me, Blanche, Caymus & Peachy (2004-2010) - Thank you for BOTD!.

  Sad News from Dorian's Cockatiel cousin
Sadly, my Grandma's 35 year old cockatiel, Baby, passed over the Rainbow Bridge this past weekend. My Grandma is a nurse and performed a heroic attempt at CPR, but Baby didn't come back and my Grandma is so sad. We will all miss Baby very much and I hope my human Mama will post a memorial page to him as soon as Grandma sends her some photos. To live happily for 35 plus years is a wonderful thing and he was singing, eating well and hopping around until the very end and guess it was just his time to go. My 100 year old human Great Grandma is really sad and has cried and cried all weekend too. Baby was loved by the whole human family and will be missed. :o(
Dorian Grey and Donna, my human

Come visit me, Dorian Grey.

I'm back home playing with my toys again, it feels so good to be home. I think the Easter bunny was either getting sick or was just in a big rush to get somewhere. As so as the plane landed , he jumped out of the plane said goodbye and ran away. hope your having a great day.I'm so glad you like my pics, it means alot to mom!! Love your pics to very ...nice!!

  Hi Dorian,
Sorry it took a while to get back with you but mom is in a remodeling and fixing up - mood. We put our house on the market and mom is trying to spice things up to get it sold. She is driving everybody crazy and dad told her to stop watching HGTV, hehehe. We love all them new pictures of you, especially the one with the shiny moosh beak. MOOSH??? My mom was just tickeled as she read that. She is german and now learned something new. But hey, that Beak Appetit is some good stuff. My favorite is Nuts for Alfredo. So you like to be touched by your people? Not me...if I feel like it then mom is allowed to scratch my head but thats about it. My sister Bella is the only one who loves to be cuddled but only by mom, maybe because mom had her since she was a baby. That crazy girl let mom do almost anything with her. By the way, who did the drawing from you? It's so cute. Well, mom says we have to go. I hope you all have a very nice Easter Weekend. Talk to you soon. Simu

Come visit me, Simu & Flock & BELLA - Panama Amazon.

  My Mama is so naughty!
I'm indignant Mama put a new picture of me with my shiny beak all covered in "moosh" (that's what we call Beak Appetit) as my new website photo! Ak! Ak! Mama said I look so cute when my face is a mess she couldn't resist poking fun at how messy we Grey types are! She said she thought everyone was tired of my sexy Grey stripper pole dancing impression so we needed a change! Maybe one day one of her pics of me will win me Bird of the Week?! How cool that would be and I'd get new toys! Mom says I tear up so many toys she has to work just to buy new stuff for me to destroy, but dang! It gets boring in the cage if I'm just chillin' out so why not search and destroy?! Better than plucking too, right? whoo hooo!
Thanks for everyone's nice messages! Gotta fly but wanted to explain why I look a mess for awhile! I'm really quite a handsome, fastidious bird man and she just caught me in a moment! Ha ha! She's laughing! I must bite her now! Ouch Ouch!
Tee hee!
