African grey communication problems?
A few small questions..
I have a rescue african grey. His name is Bubbasaur, named after the Pokemon Bulbasaur. So here are a few questions that I have so that I can better understand my lovable bird pal.
My african grey seems to ALWAYS be hungry! If I'm eating, he wants in. Is that normal?
He whistles a LOT, and picks up new whistles every now and then. How ever, he mostly will only do this when I am not in the room to grab my attention. Though sometimes he will when I am on the computer or watching the TV. He says a few words, but so rarely that it seems that he can't actually speak. How can I encourage him to both chat with me in the room and to learn words and use them??
Also, when I am in the room an talking to him in a sweet happy tone he starts dancing. So cute! I love my Bubbasaur.
He also will hold your finger in his beak, but not biting down or anything. Just holding and licking your finger. what does that mean??
In my home, I have an african grey (congo) and a green amazon (orange winged). the amazon is in early 30's and grey is about 10. How can I help these birds get to be friends? is it possible?
