was my parrot too young when he was taken from his mother
by kristy griffin
i bought my african grey 4 months ago and he has been very sick twice since. the vet weighed him the other day and said he was very small for his age(the pet shop owner said he was 4mts when i bought him, which would make him 8mts now) but he was not malnurished. i rang the pet shop to find out about the breeder but the owner wouldnt tell me anything. could you tell me what age should a parrot be before he is taken from his mother please? i love my parrot to bits, and wouldnt swap him for the world but now i am very worried about him.
