I went into a pet store one day and saw my little boy as an infant. He could barely stand up and was still being hand fed. He was so precious and I knew he had to come home with me when he was ready..

Hi! My name is Hailee

I am an African Grey from Bear, DE.

Hailee-boy, Mr. Hailee, Hailee-bug and Prince Hailee

9 years old   M

African Grey

Reese's Pieces, ice cream, pasta, walnuts, dried bananas, grapes, and cool whip.

A huge tree by the window, at work all day with mommy, and of course hanging out with mommy watching tv at night....I just love being held.

People moving to quickly, Not being able to go into the shower in the am, and Not being around my MOMMY. I love to spend time with her.

I love me some MOMMY time. I love how mommy spoils me, and trys to never leave me alone. I have more toys and cages than I know what to do with. I am so lucky to have a mommy like her. I like when mommy and I snuggle at night.

knocking on walls, mirrors, and windows with my beak. Hanging upside down like a bat screaming at the top of my lungs..

I AM ALL BOY.....BEAKS TO YA!.

  Hello Hailee...
It was good to hear from you. Yes, I love books too! I ate my mommies address book!! I have been trying all week to get the sink sponge! I chew one up almost weekly now. You should go try one.


I saw my first little person last night! It was sooo scary!! Daddy tired to tell me it was just a smaller version of him, but I wouldn't have it! I puffed up twice my size, and swayed back and forth, all while hissing! That was crazy. I never want to see a little person again.

Your friend,
Willow

I have found a new food that I love!! It is sheepherders bread! Yummy stuff! I just sit on top of the loaf and start eating. What have you been eating lately? Your friend, Willow.

  Hello!
Hi Hailee! It has been warm here, just yesterday it was 80'! Mommy and Daddy had an Oscar party last night, and I wasn't too happy about all the strangers. I loved the wonderful warm tomato/cheese dip and the Jalapeno cream cheese, but I didn't like the people! I would not let anybody TOUCH me! I was quite rude my mommy said. Those bizarre Cockatoos were acting silly, wanting to be snuggled, but not me! After about a 1/2 hour of my annoying parents trying to get me to talk, I was happily put to bed. How was your weekend? Your snobby friend, Willow.

  Good afternoon.
Good to hear from you all. We were worried down here in the desert. Its very quiet out here, except for us parrots. lol...I have been into everything! I have found a new place to sit, on top of the clean dishes in the dish rack! Mommy don't really like it when I am up there, I don't understand why? And, I have also found some little beads hanging off the fringes on the living room curtains! If you climb to your curtains, you might find something to play with too. I just fly in sideways and land upside down from the fringes. There, I can PLUCK away at the awesome beads! I get the spray bottle for that one. I still nip mommy and daddy too. I can be extrememly loving one minute, and swinging from my mommys hair reaching up taking a bite the next! Than theres the fridge, I climb right in whenever it opens. From there, I will quickly grab something and fly off. The chase is on. Yesterday, I took off with a whole package of bacon. Yes, I am that strong. You should try it sometime. Can you run fast?? Gotta go, I am hungry again! Your friend, Willow.

  Hi little nipper!
My mom says our computer was down for several days, and she has been trying to upload pics to the computer, but for some reason they won't upload. I am a nipper too. Dad says its because I am young, and closer to the wild than my cockatoo brothers and sisters. Dad was kinda hoping I would grow out of it. I guess our moms need to talk with other Grey owners to see if our nipping is common. Mom will let you know when she gets the picture loader to work. Hope you let your mom know what is making your nippy and I will try too.

  Hi Hailee
Sorry, I haven't been visiting alot lately, but we've been having fun getting ready for the Super Bowl ((((GO STEELERS!!!))))but the funniest thing happened, I decided to go into the shower instead of taking baths in the sink and I just love it! It is so much fun, now I get really jealous when mom takes sammies the sun conure in with her instead of me! I scream and yell...me first me first...but no one listens, so when she comes to get me for my turn I usually throw a fit and then she knows I'm mad, so we get to spend extra time in the shower. he he he

  The tree!
The tree was purchased at Walmart for 20$ Daddy says that it was near the Sewing Dept. A twenty dollar toy is pretty cheap considering what our toys usually cost! Dad says he will try to load a pic up soon. He better hurry, the fake plastic tree is almost NAKED!!!

  Good afternoon.
I like your new pics! You brush your beak quite well. I told my daddy I want a toothbrush too! The pics of you at Xmas are cool too. When ever my mommy trys to take my pic, I start to regurgitate. Its a weird thing I have always done. My mom bought me a 5 foot fake plastic tree about a month ago. It sits next to my cage and I love it! I have it almost bare! I will sit on it like its the real thing, and pluck a leaf off one at a time. All I have left is the bottom half. Rest assured, I do not eat the fake leaves, I just let them drop to the floor. I make a mess, but daddy says its worth it.
I bet you have been busy with your new toys! Thats exciting. Talk at you later. I have leaves to pluck!

  Hola!
Hello friend! We have been a very busy household this past few weeks! My daddy and his friends have made a movie, and there has been lots of parties! We had Tamales for Xmas, and I loved them! I hope all is well and your staying warm. I did discover a new taste that my mommy and daddy keep taking away from me, and that is COFFEE!! I like the coffee but they won't share it with me! Go figure!!
I shall be back later to visit.

Hi Hailee! We think it's amazing that you can go outside and hang out...we're pretty happy just hanging out on our gym watching from inside our cozy home. We try not to give our mom a hard time, but every once in a while she's gotten a nip from one of us, usually it's from Izzy...she hates going to bed! We've also got a sun conure living with us, mom's too smart to let us play with him, but we love copying him! screech, screech!!! Love and Hugs, Izzy and Gabby.

Just a quick fly by to vote and say hello! It has been cold and windy here. I like to sit on the perch by the window and stare at the birds and deer outside. The only time I get scared is when the vultures land! Than I am gone! Have a fun week!

  Hey Hailee!
I like the new pic of you and the reindeer! Weren't you afraid? What do you think of snow? This morning Esher, my BIG sister was eating an apple, and I flew to her cage, and guess what I did? I took the apple from her, right out of her mouth and flew to my cage to eat it! I am a stinker! Esher sat there with a blank look on her face and than she screamed! Mommy had to get her another slice, but that one I let her eat. lol. I have no fear of the other birds what so ever! Its funny that they are afraid of me! I have an attitude daddy says. I tried a new veggie the other day that I love! It is celery! Have ya tried it yet? Have a warm day. Talk at ya later.

Hello friend! Mommy has been working long shifts, so we don't get on the computer much. I am glad to know that I dont have a feather loose and that you hate the phone too! I will sometimes attack the keys on the key board of the computer. Not always, just if I get bored. I than grumble loudly as I am being scooped away, still hanging on to a key! Oh yes, try the oatmeal warm. Its yummy! I get fed my grape or cherry tomatos on the kitchen counter, and after I eat, there is tomato mush on the counter, floor and me! Stay warm, and I shall be back later.

  Good day!
Hello friend. I had all kinds of food on Turkey day! I especially loved the grape tomatoes! I went crazy over them! And of course, mashed potatoes! My dad wants to know if you bite your dad or mom when they are on the phone? I don't know why, but when anyone picks up the phone I will bite them hard! The phone makes me angry, and one day I even thru it on the floor! Evil thing!!!
Mirrors are cool! I play with a mirror too.
I am getting ready to eat some warm oatmeal with bits of apples so I will be back later.

  Hailee boy!
Yeah, I am the same way! I would rather play and play! I snuggle big time with my daddy, but mommy is only allowed to kiss me for a few seconds, than I growl and wiggle away. Mommy and daddy both can just scoop me up with both hands and carry me around like a foot ball! I don't mind it. I growl and grumble a lot! Do you? My first words were "Willow don't bite" and "I love you". I can now say "Willow" and "Dada". Mostly I just grumble. Two of the other parrots in the house can say "Willow" too. LOL!! Daddy says he's gonna eat me and will hold me upside down and chew on my neck! I will laugh and make cute goochie sounds! It makes him all teary eyed and than he will leave me alone for awhile! :)Well, I am hungry, go figure, so I must go for now. BBL

  hi hailee! this is donald and daisy's mommy. donald and daisy talk to each other at times. we taught them the concept of the word "naughty". when they rarely disagree over something, one will call the other naughty! or one will start to whilstle a song, and the other finishes it! my favorite is this one-daisy does the phone ring, and donald says hello!! it's so funny!they have never fought, they get along together very well. we make sure each one has a different activity to do while in the cage. we adopted daisy first, and we weren't sure if adding another grey would be a good idea. it turns out that after consulting the breeder we adopted daisy from, we decided we could do it. we brought daisy along with us to see how she would get along with donald on the day we adopted him. we make sure they both do things together with us. we always take them out together. if you feel you can make time for two of them, it should be ok for you to adopt another grey. i would seek advice from your vet first, because he/she can help you take into consideration the personality of your grey. i am glad i did! the breeder said sometimes the best thing you can do for a grey is adopt a pal, as long as you can handle playing with them together so they don't loose interest in you. i think that has been the key to our success with our two greys. having the two of them has been so rewarding! we bought a california cage for them, if you go to www.calcages.com it's the del mar macaw 700 deluxe cage. it was pricy, but it will last a long time and is easy to clean. as far as food, they are on a harrison's diet with treats being nuts, veggies, and occassionaly, something from our dinner plates. donald will try anything, daisy turns her beak up at most things. it takes time to get her to try something new. bird care is something i am passionate about, too. i am so happy there are people out there that take such good care of their birdy companions!! we will talk to you again later, take care!!

  hello hailee! yes, most african greys do resemble each other, but each one developes his or her own unique personality. does hailee talk? donald learned some new words this week--"okie dokie" and "where's mommy?" my girl, daisy loves to mimic house sounds like the phone, microwave, etc. she talks a lot, but donald talks the most! he and daisy also love to whislte "bridge over the river kwai" and "charge"! he is becomming quite a "chatterbox", and i wouldn't have it any other way. i love my life with my birds and i am having the time of my life! i am sure you feel the same way, i see hailee is loved so much. that makes me so happy! we hope you have a great weekend, we will stop by again soon to chat. take care.

  Hello friend!
My mom wants to know if you ever get bitey? I love my dad, but my mom I will bite like heck if my dad is holding me! I turn crazy if anyone gets near me when I am on my dad! I don't know why I bite my mom...I will let her touch me a little and kiss me only if my dad is not home. I was raised by both my mom and dad from 4 weeks of age. But I prefer my dad way over my mom!
Any ideas?
Mom says the Cockatoos are not like this, and love mom and dad equally.

  Hey there!
Hello big boy! How are you? We have been so busy here with fall and all.
I am a great flyer, and there is only my mom and dad. They only go in and out the front room door, and its kept dark in there, so I don't like to fly there. Its where they watch t.v. and listen to music, so us birds are really not allowed in there. They are very cautious on where I am, and will lock me in my cage if bringing in groceries. The other birds are cockatoos, and they wouldn't fly away for nothing. But us Greys, we tend to lose our minds and just FLY!!!
Hope all is well, and looking forward to new pictures of you.
