An African Grey Parrot – What is it?



Like many parrots, the African Grey parrot has a very strong hooked beak. This means that it can grab any object that is placed in front of it with great strength, before taking it into its mouth. While few details are known about how wild African Grey parrot displays courtship, it’s generally known that they’re quite monogamous. The average clutch, or quantity of eggs laid per nest, for the African Grey is usually two to three eggs.

This is a common practice among pet owners to breed their birds for the sole purpose of producing a nest and breeding more birds. Many African greys are sold as pets without ever having been introduced to people or other animals. Pet breeders often leave their birds outside their cages during the day and let them go out in the back garden, bush or along the driveway. Such action exposes the birds to a great deal of risk, as wild animals can easily attack the birds.

When a bird has not been handled by humans and is left to fend for itself, it will start displaying disturbing behavioral changes. Such changes include a growling stomach and increased activity in and around the wings. Such indicators will usually occur around the time of mating. However, it’s important to note that the size of the head of the African grey parrot doesn’t necessarily have a direct relationship to the amount of activity it displays-sometimes the size of the head is actually smaller than the rest of the bird’s body! It’s also not a guarantee that the bird will display its altered behavior in such circumstances; sometimes the altered behavior may simply be confused with another symptom of stress.

There are two subspecies of the African grey parrot (one is also known as the ‘tied’ parrot) which are generally recognized by their different coloration. The most common color variation is gray, and both subspecies of the African grey parrot have some variation in color which is also often called ‘masquerade coloring’. One subspecies has slightly larger heads than the other, which also affects their ability to recognize and communicate with fellow members of their own species. These differences affect how the two subspecies interact with each other, and also how they behave in captivity. Because of their large size, the tied subspecies tend to become aggressive and dominate their smaller counterparts.

One of the most commonly sold strains of the African grey parrot is the Congo African Grey. The Congo has larger and wider heads than any of the other subspecies; Congo African grey parrots are also significantly heavier than any other of their kind. The Congo has larger bills than all the subspecies of the African grey parrot, which is why they are commonly sold for sale. They have large yellow eyes, and also have what is referred to as ‘parrot brows’ or a ‘case brow’ – this is a set of very thin, rounded ears that sit close to the head, which can make the bird very attractive to many bird owners. The Congo’s beak is wider and larger than any other conformation of the African grey parrot. Their beaks are long and stick out a little further than any other of the subspecies of the African grey parrot.

Of the seven subspecies of the African grey parrot, the Congo has the widest range of colors, as well as the widest variety of beaks. It has been said that these particular birds were originally bred in captivity from a wild source, and that they were probably taken from an ostrich’s nest. Their natural diet consists of berries, seeds, nuts, seeds, fresh fruit, and the meat from small animals.
