I did the research, decided I did want an African Grey, and found her on a local website. I brought her home at 3 months of age.. Awards

Hi! My name is Ziggy

I am a Congo African Grey from Nederland, TX.

Zigmund Freud, Ziggy von Ziggenstein, Stewie

14 years old   F

Congo African Grey

She eats nearly anything, but she's got a serious tomato sauce addiction. She'll eat it on anything - pizza, pasta, whatever. She also has a passion for bratwurst, of all things.

Top of her cage and her playgym.

Cardboard boxes and new toys

She respects my space when I want it, she buys me great toys, she provides well for me, and we play together lots!

She has a serious toe fetish - she loves to nibble on anyone's toes! She also nags us at bedtime. When she's tired, she says "C'mon, time for night night!" over and over until we turn off the lights and go to bed. :).

  feather questions again
Dear Ziggy,

Well, here it is almost Christmas, and I am plucking my feathers out again. Do you think the change in daylight hurts African Greys? Do you think one of those UV lights would make me feel better? I get lots of attention, and my mom started giving me that yummy hydroxazine again, and I think I am going to get a collar again if I don't straighten up soon. I look like a plucked chicken just in time for Christmas picture taking!

  Hey everyone, my mom does some very cool work painting parrots. You should check out her store, where you can get parrots on nearly anything - T-shirts, BBQ aprons, tote bags, mugs, mousepads... nearly a hundred different products! Don't forget your parrot lover friends for the holidays! Visit!

Come visit me, Sunny, Tater Tot, Ziggy & Chester.

  I'm learning new things, yay! Mom is teaching me to recognize different objects, just like Alex. I'm just as smart as Alex is, and I'm going to prove it! Today we're working on my toys. I'm learning Block, Lego, and Ball. I'm also continuing to expand on my already large vocabulary. Last night, I strung an entire sentence together out of words and phrases I know from different things. I said, "Hey, Charles, want me to give you some cracker?" See, I AM as smart as Alex.

Come visit me, Sunny, Tater Tot, Ziggy & Chester.

  Betcha didn't know I knew my colors, eh? I can identify red, green, yellow, and blue! There's a picture down there with my human sister. She and my mom taught me how to pick the right color lego from your hand. I get it right about 75% of the time, according to the statistics my human sister kept for her science project. My mom says most of the time I miss, it's because I'm just sick of the game and throw whatever piece is closest to me. I know my colors all right - I just have a short attention span!

Come visit me, Sunny, Tater Tot, Ziggy & Chester.

  Sounds to me like Ziggy has a mind of her own... shes got it all figured out and under control. What a funny story, got to love a bird that fights (a little) for her independence. What a wonderful, spoiled rotten little bird... just the way she should be.

Come visit me, Marvin.

  Hey, Ziggy! Thanks for sending me all your good ideas about feather picking. I wore a collar for about 2 months and my people gave me some hydroxazine 3 times a day for 3 months. It helped, and I was sure glad to get that collar off. It all started when my original Mom died, I think, and it made my Dad sad, so he did not spend as much time with me. It was all "down feather" from there. My new family has worked hard to fix me up. No one smokes, and they use few candles or smelly things. Do you think more or less toys helps? I love to tear up paper, that distracts me for a while.

Anyhow, hope you enjoyed your time out of the cage. Be careful and watch out for cats!
Happy Thanksgiving.

Come visit me, Tuki.

  I snuck out of my cage last night. Wow, was that fun! Mom thought she latched my food door securely, but I was watching closely and noticed it wasn't all the way closed. As soon as she went to bed, I climbed back out of my cage and spent the night on top of it. And boy, when Dad came to get me and put me back inside, I wasn't having anything to do with it! He's easy to bite - and so much fun, because he yelps! - so I nailed him a couple of times before submitting and going back in my cage so I could get something to eat and drink. He's a sucker for me, even though I find great fun in provoking him.

Come visit me, Sunny, Tater Tot, Ziggy & Chester.
