We hand fed Linus from 5 weeks old, and purchased him from a breeder in FL. He was just a puff of white feathers when we got him...too cute!. Awards

Hi! My name is Linus

I am an African Grey from Leominster, MA.

Batman; Linabird; Foof-Aloof (don't even ask where we came up with that one!)

11 years old   M

African Grey

Kaytee Mango Yogurt Dips;
Fresh Cranberries;
Almonds; APPLE SAUCE (in moderation of course)

Upside down from the top of my cage like a bat! Hence, the nickname "Batman".

Linus does not like water on "some" days. Unfortunately, some days means every day lately. He also won't eat parrot biscuits unless they soaked in warm water so they are nice and mushy!

I love when my owners give me "scratchy scratches" on my chinny chin chin. I love how they let me have slumber parties so I can snuggle with them at night before bed.

You'd swear Linus was part gymnast! He can back flip like his name is Kerri Strug! YOU CAN DO IT LINUS!.

A yogurt dip a day keeps the scary Vet away!.

  Hootie hoo hello!
Linus, I like to do the same thing on my Poppie's hands and think you are beautiful and funny! You made my mama laugh! Wow, you have all of your wing feathers too- lucky Linus! My Mama had to clip mine because of thier prowling felines, BeeBop and Rufus Newton. I like to say meow meow to them, but really like it when I can get close enough to nip one of those tails! The funny thing is, they are scared of ME! Ha ha! Maybe it's my big beakie face or maybe they sense I'm a tough cookie, but mama still never takes a chance at letting them near me though I sure love to watch them! Fly by and say hello hello sometime!

OMG, that is such a cute make my mommy want to go out and get another bird! She wishes that I would lay on my back like that sometimes. I hope you had a happy halloween! Did you go trick or treating or wear a costume? Mommy got me a tropical costume, but I don't like to wear it at all. Have a nice weekend! Here's a vote for you and my little sister! --Morgan

  Hi there Linus
Just run in to your site--or should i say fly? are a COOL bird!!! I looked at that pic with you laying on your back and i had to swallow really hard. You are sure brave. I love my mom very much but i don't think i trust her enough yet to let her do that with me. But in the 14 mo. i'm with her she worked really hard to let me know that i can give kisses and that it is not so bad having my little head scratched. Lately i even let her rub my belly and Boy do i love maybe some day i will lay down for her too. I guess it takes a while because in my first 13 years nobody paid any attention to me.
But at least we have one thing in common: I don't like taking a bath neither, but i'm getting better at that too. Mom figured finally out that if she promises me a peanut than i will take a shower. Well, it's amazing what Bird will do for a good treat.
By the way...congratulation for beeing bird of the month!!!
Come and see me sometimes

  Hello Linus!

My name is Schroeder, and I'm a congo african grey too! I think our owners may have liked peanuts a little too much when she named us!

Your picture is great, I haven't learned to lay on my back yet, but maybe someday. You must really love your owners!

Come visit me, Schroeder.

  Laying on your back
my Blue crown, ED, that is his favorite position.
its his preferred one actually. We always wanted a grey, but since 90% of our birds are rescues / adoptions, we never came accross one that needed us. most greys stay in homes due to their good nature.
i am glad that he is loved and cared for, that makes me very happy for him and you :)
good luck with your lifetime companion :)

  Hey Linus!
Your pics are awesome! I love and trust my mommy like you do and LOVE laying on my back in her hand or against her chest and looking out at people, then when they get close I fluff up and bobb my head, giving the warning to stay away from my mommy, she's mine! Jamie
