Our gray has bonded with my wife and so he bites everyone else. I know the feeling. The only reason I keep him around is for the entertainment value. He says the craziest things sometimes.

My Amazon can expect to live that long also. The smaller the bird the less the lifespan.

To add...The 100 year old parrot is an urban myth. To my knowledge, the oldest ever recorded was 80. Most pass to early because people do not know how to work with them or feed them. Even burning a teflon skillet will poison even the strongest bird. Heck it poisons you also, we are just better at taking it.
I donít use teflon for that very reason. I had heard the 100-year figure.

Good luck with your bird. My mother-in-law has a blue and gold like that....what a pisser he is. Kind of like an underchallenged 8 year old stuck in a bird suit. I have an African Gray myself....funniest (and most complicated) bird I've owned yet. I don't think there's a day that goes by that he doesn't make me laugh my ass off on something.

The greys are cool, but a little to needy for my taste. Usually very tempermental when they bond with one person. Keep this in mind, If he pukes on you it means he loves you. I am still handfeeding the B&G. Makes it much easier to handle him because he thinks I am mommy. I wouldn't recommend handfeeding unless you have experience or a mentor. It can kill a baby bird in about 30 second if done incorrectly. The only time he should be a problem is during the terrible 2's and when it is mating season.

BTW...It is good to be back.

Dare2BSquare Just goes to show you...

Old WFers never die, they just disappear for a while. Wait long enough and they will return.

(that's a good thing, most of the time)

Welcome back.

Hopefully I made a good impression.

Heya skeeter, thanks. I have been away so long, I guess I need to read a bit to catch up.

OH yeah...Forgot to mention, The Jeep is still in one piece and running strong.

Wow...there are a few more people here now then when I left.

Well, I may be back. Life threw a few curve balls, but should have some free time soon. I know that just makes everyone so excited.

I promise I will play nice, and for those that remember OC, she will probably not be returning.

I thought I would start off with a few pics of my newest little boy. Think of him as a 5 Year old with ADD and a can opener.
