My child Lamb-Chop (African Grey)

I recieved Lamb-Chop for my 50th Birthday. What a pleasure, he was only 3 weeks old and looked just like a lambchop when he stretched his little neck up!
Well Lamb-Chop has been with me for a year now, and I have heard stories that the African Grey mimics sounds.... Well I dont think so they are so intelagent. Last week while sitting in my lounge I heard someone going to the loo. Aloud and to myself I said I wonder who that is. Well I nearly fell on my back when Lamb-Chop tells me "Mommy Zarel go make poo" (Zarel being my son!)Well it was my son in the loo.
My child (Lamb-Chop) says quite a few words and a few sentences as well. He is well loved by all in the house and enjoys hugs and kisses by the whole family. He has a cage which he uses to sleep in and his play-pen which is another cage with all his toys in. He chooses where he wants to be and has the full run of the house. In the morning he asks me for song (radio) or see (T.V.) I know he is spoiled but he is worth it.
If we go on holiday he goes with and enjoys new places as long as I am with him. I think he knows that I am his mommy and I know he feels safe with me. He loves his daddy and brothers too but he has chosen me as his pet. (I think he knows that he has us all just where he wants us.)
To one and all who own these beautiful birds enjoy them to the fullest all they want is your love.
well that is our story. I hope you enjoy.
