Two years ago I purchased 2 African Greys from a woman.
Joey is a Timneh (no idea of age, maybe 15)She told me she had gotten him from a man who had abused him and he was quite afraid.
Lucy is a CAG and again maybe abit younger. She did not tell me where she got her.
She had put them in the same cage and was selling their young. Telling people they wee CAGs.
I took them home and let her have her eggs for awhile (they were infertile. I then separated the 2 and put them in cages side by side. Lucy only like men and does not even like it when I feed her.
When I first tried to pick up Joey I got a few good scars. I have been working with him and he has gotten to the point where he will stick out him leg and let me kiss him. (from the safety of his cage)Outside he will let me near but and seems to enjoy our visit. He climbs down and walks around the house sometimes.
My question is, Lucy like my uncle and is willing for him to take her out. He would like to have her and I am willing to give her to him. (he has cockateils, a blue crowned conure and some finches) He lives 10 hours way so they would not be able to visit each other.
I would like to keep Joey but am worried that it may not be good for him to be without another bird. I would really miss him and I do love him but I want to do what is best for him.
As I type they are in there talking back and forth. Please tell me your opinions. Thanks
