Carly will be getting a new grey companion later this summer! She is always intensely interested whenever she sees other greys (especially babies) and I had always intended to get another one. Wendy Craig, who was the breeder of Otis and Annie and also breeds African Greys, said that they do tend to like to stay with their own kind, unlike macaws. Our ‘baby brother” is one of Wendy’s who is now 8 weeks old. He will be fully weaned by her, and she is one of the best out there. Having seen her home and aviaries in Texas, and seen how she cares for and trains her birds, I know this will be the best environment one could ever ask for for a well-socialized and healthy bird.
Here are some pics!

I had always intended for my next parrot to be a re-home, but given our living situation now, with 4 parrots in a small home where they all have to be together peacefully all the time, a re-home would be a bit risky if there were any behavioral problems. Also difficult to find a rehome who is not clipped, though sometime in the future when there is more time and space I would definitely be up for going through the adult fledging process again.
