THESE ARE MY NEWEST BABIES



7 Week old African Grays, on three feedings a day.


Front view of the African Grays. 7 weeks old. Remember these are the most intelligent birds in the world. They can be taught to count, tell a color, tell shapes of blocks and so many more things. It does take time and patience but what a worth-wild project, wouldn't you say? You don't have to teach these marvelous birds to talk. They mimic what they hear. That is if that's what they want to say. This is why they are so intelligent.
