African greys are social parrots that need a lot of hands-on time. However, they aren’t “cuddle bugs.” They will tolerate some head-scratching and a little bit of petting. Still, they do not appreciate intense physical contact, though some don’t mind a little snuggling.
They can be wonderful and affectionate, but, like other large parrots, African greys are considered high-maintenance pets. While “greys” are entertaining and rewarding to keep, they prefer a routine schedule. As a result, they require a substantial amount of time with their owners.

African Grey Parrot for sale
Silvergate Bird Farm has been raising African grey parrots for many years. This species has been a popular pet for thousands of years and has a remarkable ability to reason and mimic words and phrases accurately. They are well-known for their ability to understand human speech, which has made them a popular choice for both research and as pets. A well-trained African grey can learn hundreds of words, phrases, and sounds.
The African Grey Parrot, scientifically known as Psittacus erithacus, is a moderate-sized bird found in Africa’s equatorial regions. It is considered one of the most intelligent birds and makes an excellent human companion. Adopting and raising an African grey requires a significant investment of time and energy, but the rewards of living with one are incredibly enriching.
Housing is essential for proper African grey parrot care. The bird should be kept in a cage that is at least 2ftX2ftX3ft in size and should include a minimum of three perches and toys to provide mental stimulation. It is best to hang or place the cage in a corner of the room, away from doorways, windows, or air vents and in a draft-free area to ensure the bird’s peace of mind.
African greys are known for being active and playful, and they love to interact with their owners. They quickly learn new words and sounds, so it’s best to exercise care while talking around them. The bird can even mimic sounds like a calling bell or a pressure cooker, which they may have heard.
In addition to playing with toys, African greys love to spend quality time outside the cage. They enjoy all sorts of entertainment, including radio and TV shows. When bored, they may start to exhibit self-destructive behavior such as feather plucking and loud squawking.
To maintain a healthy diet, African greys should be given a mixture of fresh fruits, vegetables, and pelleted supplements. Experts recommend occasional treats such as bread, salads, hemp, and sprouts while avoiding caffeine and alcohol products, salted foods, uncooked beans, onions, asparagus, chocolate, and avocado.
Grooming is an essential aspect of African grey care. They require daily swims, which can be provided using a shallow tray or a mist spray. Professional grooming is required for feather clipping and nail trimming.
