  Hello
mama came home from work and she went to the gracery store first. It is great when she shops for us. Today she brought some freash corn still on the cob. They gave it to her for us because they were going to throw it away. IT WAS STILL GOOD!! mama washed it and cut it up and gave us some. We also got some carrots, celery, cantalope, apples,grapes, blueberries,broccoli. Mama made us a medley. She does this daily. WE EXPECT IT!!! Bongo bit Rocky ( the Dog ) on the ear because he go between him and Mama. Rocky thought Mama did it. Rosey threw her seeds out on Mamas dedk and when Mama came home and saw it she said "ROSEY!!! What did you do this for?" and You can tell when one of us have been raised with children because Rosey said, " I didn't do that." Mama said "What is going on ? Now I have a bird that lies." Rosey didn't get in trouble, Mama just shook her head and cleaned it up. Well we will go now. Here is a vote for you.. Have a wonderful day.

  Hello from Bowdon Jct.
We haven't been on line in a while but everything around here has been crazy. Mama found the prettiest congo grey. He has a lame foot. A birth defect. She bought him and brought him home and then a girl at work who had greys in the past reallllllllllllly wanted him and Mama let her adopt him. He is about 4 years old and super super sweet. At the pet store he had his head stuck under mamas grey collar. The other woman who was looking for a grey wanted a perfect one. Well she missed out on a great companion. He has a good home now and Mama isn't worried about him being happy. Jazzy is learning so many words and Mama can't tell her from Bongo when they are talking. She thinks Bongo is teaching her to talk while shwe is at work. We may have found a girlfriend for Niah but we have to get some money to buy her. The same woman who didn't want the grey (by the way is named Jazz also.) has her. She said she would like for her to get bred because of the the way the bird is acting. heeeheeeheee. Mama is dying to see her but she lives close to atlanta and it is a long drive. Rosey is still trying to be the boss of everything and when she don't get her way she will start screaming and Bongo will Yell at her to SHUT UPPPP!!! Mama is shocked at his language sometimes but that is what you get when you adopt an older bird that has lived with other people. She is afraid Jazzy will pick it up.In A few weeks Mama will babysit some Congo eggs while the pet store owner goes to Canada for his nephews wedding. We are sooo excited and because they are due to hatch while he is gone. Maybe we will keep one and Mama will raise it up and teach it to be super sweet. Well We hope you are doing great and hereis a vote for you. Have a blessed day.

  good morning
Mommy got up this morning and thought her legs will fell off,because she is soooooo sore from jetskiing the other day,she can barely walk,hihihi,thats what you get,when you leave to have fun without us,hehehe.yesterday the new cage came for Padme,our new eclectus sister and mommy and daddy was putting him together,oh boy,he is big,bigger then they thought,hihihihi,but they realized,that it would be the last birdie for now,if they would not get a bigger house,because,no more space for another cage here.Padme is on two feedings now and the girls from the store,which are ver close friends with mommy and daddy,said,if she is on one feeding she might can come home,because they trust mommy and now she can do it and if something is not right,mommy would bring her to the store straight away,but they only do it for mommy,so we'll see.but she is a big girl and shares her cage at the stores with two little grey's,thats so cute.don't know if you saw the pictures on Boba's page?so gotta go,mommy needs more coffee.hehehe,here is your vote for today.Beaky kisses CHLOE

  Hello From Bongo
It has been a hot weekend. It was supposed to rain today but that didn't happen. We all love Our new room because we can see outside. Jazz has learned to bark like a dog. When Mama came home from work yesterday Jazz was barking at her through the window. We guess she learned that from Rocky. When He sees someone or something outside he like to bark. The bird show is coming up this weekend in Forest Park Ga. and Mama is hopeing to get Niah a wife. Rosey has learned everyone in the hose by their name and can call whoever she wants.Thank you for flying by and voting and here is a vote for you. We hope you have a blessed Day.

  Hello From Bowdon Jct. Ga.
Today issssssssss hot and miserable But that is OK because we are tropical birds and it doesn't bother us as much as it does Mama. She wont run the AC yet and uses a fan. Her old one went out and she about smothereed for one night. Daddy bought her a new one the next day because she tried to kick him and the dog out of the bed. mama got a pedicure yesterday ( she hasn'r had one in awhile) Rosey attacked her feet because she didn't like the red polish.Rosey is soo silly sometimes. We really live our bird room mama fixed for us. We can see outside all the time, well except at night because Daddy can't stand the blinds open. He is scared someone will see us and try to steal us. He said the blinds can't even be open when he and Mama aren't there. Mama has to agree. Well we just wanted to fly by for an update and to cast a vote for you. We are sorry this is a generic letter to all but we are pressed for time. We really love you all and hope you have a blessed day.

  Bly says hi
grandma always was afraid of birds,so we think it will not change.she is ok,when birds are in the cage,but don't wanna close them.mommy told us a story.were our mommy was little girl,she always went with her dad to a pet store,to get fish food.there was that big scarlet macaw,her daddy would give her one finger,the bird would hold in her beak,shake it and say hello LOLA,which was her name.mommy thought,she wanna do this too,but when the macaw was going to get mommy's finger,she pulled it back and the bird bit mommy very bad,she still got the scare of it.after they got home,grandma asked what happens,oh she was mad with grandpa,two days later mommy had to go to the doctor,because she got a infection,but you see,mommy still loves birds,maybe she got infected by the bird bug from the macaw,hihihihihi.daddy and the kids,had lots of fun yesterday,but they didn't brought us nothing back.hmmmmffffffffffff.anyway,hope you have a great day.beaky kisses Bly

  Hi Chloe
Gus saw a dog for the first time today. Chi chi has seen them before but Gus never has. The skin sister came over with her boxer, Murphy. The fids were very quiet as long as the skin people were upstairs but when they went to the gameroom they got pretty noisy. Gus was very interested in Murphy but didn’t want to come out with mom to check it out more either. When the skin sister and Murphy left Gus and Chi chi had lots to cheech about hihihi. Come visit us my friend…our door is always open for you even if we aren’t Motel 8 we still love company. Vote is in your corner today now and cheech to you later

  Hi Chloe
about the biting,if she bites you,say loud no and put her back in the cage,wait for a few minutes and try again,normaly we learn very fast,that if we don't behave,that we have to stay in the cage and most of us,love to be outside the cage.i know it hurts your mommy very much,when you bite but she has to be patient.if mommy takes you out and you don't bite,she needs to praise you very much and maybe gives you a little treat.what about your daddy,do you bite him too,when he wanna pick you up?because i'm a big mommy's boy and don't let someone else pick me up,so mommy is the only one,who can handle me.hope we could help your mommy a bit,if she has anymore question,don't be shy,just come by and ask.beaky kisses and a vote Jango

  Mom knows your pain. The last time I got her back in March, she was afraid to touch me again. She went to the store I came from seeking help. Mom cried there and told them she didn't know if a grey was for her. They said after one month of being in the home you will see a big difference in behavior and it only gets better every month that goes by! Well, they were right. We promise after a month to two months things will be A LOT better as long as you don't give up. The biggest thing too with a grey is keeping them below eye level. They are really big in being dominant if they are above you. Mom used to let me play ontop of my cage and they would get bitten anytime they went to get me off.....so that stopped and they got me a play stand. But they still have to trick me sometimes with the 2 hand approach....us greys are stubborn when we want to be....big difference from the Goffins who love to cuddle, heehee. Pecks, Charli and mom ........Here is something I copied that helped me a little with understanding.......So why do they bite in captivity?

Fear -- Your grey could perceive danger and have a fear of harm, pain etc.

Learned Response -- Greys are very intelligent and if he learns that biting gets the desired response then he will continue to do so...
If you are putting your grey back in his cage and he bites. You react with a scream, jumping up and down etc. This is very exciting for your grey and looks like a lot of fun ... bet he does it again!
Another example is if you are putting your grey on his playstand and he doesn't want to be there so he bites. By not putting him on his playstand he has the desired results from his bite.
Hormonal/Territorial etc -- A grey can become bitey if they are hormonal or feel they are protecting their cage etc. In these cases biting is instinctive however shouldn't be reinforced.
So now we know some of the whys ...
So how do we not reinforce a behaviour that isn't natural to our friends?
If your bird seems to be biting out of fear -- Try to give a scared bird his space. Don't try to interact with him or corner him and force him to defend himself unless it is medically necessary to do so. Try talking to him and move slowly in his surroundings so he can observe you and become accustomed to your presence.
Your reaction to a bite can reinforce a future bite. Given the size of your greys beak and your natural reaction to pull back this will be the hardest approach but very effective. Your grey expects you to pull back because that is the desired reaction .. instead push back gently. This will surprise your grey as he isn't getting the desired reaction. I know easier said then done ...
If your grey is biting because he is protecting his cage/playstand etc. -- Try interacting with him with regularly practicing step ups away from his cage or playstand. As he gets better move closer to his cage and/or playstand and continnue the practice. Eventually you may be practicing this interaction in plain
