  1. Hi Guys Just read this link. I get all my fruit from Asda sooner than Tescos i find it better value and better quality, Plus i see the product before it goes in the shop as i work in the big Asda distribution centre in Bedford, have done for six years. The independent quality assured people are very stricked on the fruit that passes through the depot, the other bonus is i get a discount.

    Sad news

    sorry to here your sad news, my thoughts are with you
  3. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR KIND THOUGHTS. I WAS SO TOUCHED MY ALL YOUR KIND THOUGHTS, WE HAVE ONLY JUST BACK FROM THE VETS WITH HER, THEY SAY SHE HAD A LIVER DISORDER. THERE IS SUCH A SAD AIR IN OUR HOME AT THE MOMENT,AND BECAUSE OF THE IMPACT THAT RUBY HAD ON OUR LIVES ONE DAY WE WOULD LOVE TO BE HONOURED WITH ANOTHER AFRICAN GREY TO JOIN OUR FAMILY.
  4. We lost a great friend today, We rescued Ruby just over a year ago, she had just turned 13, She was a beauty and as she was getting to know us became a very cheeky character, she was our first encounter with an african grey, as well as are first parrot. the vet told us she had been ill for quite a while but she showed us no signs, as we rescued here we never knew her history. My house contains three dogs, two cats and a house rabit, I never thought that a bird could have such a impact on our lives and the house feels so empty and quiet. and the greeting you get when you walk in the door. I could go on for hours about Ruby as she has left a big gap in my life. We love you Ruby and will never forget you x x
  5. yes i printed a list out so i knew which trees were ok
  6. When we went out for our walk today with the dogs we decided to take them to the woods, we managed to get a branch that forked of at the top and some pine cones, when we got home we cleaned them up and put the branch in the cage, Ruby was unsure of it to start with but once it had been in there about ten minutes and she relised it was no threat she spend the rest of the day climbing up and down it. We also gave Ruby a pine cone witch she took great pleaser in pulling it to pieces, hours of fun.
  7. Thanks for your help I only joined the forum a few days ago but have learned more about my parrot in this short time than i have in the last three months since i got Ruby. I bought a book on African Greys but your links have been more noligable to me.
  8. was looking at your pictures Nelson he is lucky to find himself such a good home, you seem to have turned his life around. We got the same cage as you have in your picture, she was in such a small cage when we got her and did not have a lot of room. We thought it might take a while to get used to it but she went straight in and sat on the perch like the lady of the manor. I liked the way you have put a branch in the cage, did you pick it up from the floor a wood or did you have to buy specialy treated one from the pet store.
  9. reply to Brett and Jane looked at your photo bucket, We thought we had are hands full with our 6 animals always making it a rule to make sure they have quality time with us, we are at the moment considering another dog, A new foundland, i enjoyed looking at your pictures you have a lovely family, they all look extremly happy.
  10. With the picture of Ruby and the cup of tea she managed to get from her mobile open stand, on to the table and on to my cup of tea, which i did not think was going to be possible, because if you look at the picture it is quite away up from the table top, it goes to show that if these birds want something they will aim to get it if possible, i do not have the problem of her biting she has not done that as yet (touch wood she won't) with how sharp there beaks are, i just picked her up on the cup and took her back to her perch, she did continue to drink the tea on the way back to her pearch.
  11. some pics of Ruby And some of our dogs Taken with my phone.
  12. Thanks for your help Have got loads of pictures on my phone. Will get some on my camera and post them on the forum.
  13. Hi all Having ownly resently becoming the proud owner of a African gray, her name is ruby, (because she has a lot of red feathers all over her body and not just on her tail), she is twelve, Iwas wondering were to start on teaching her new things she can say hello, barks like a dog but that is all she will say,she will let you touch her head but when you go near her feet she gently gets hold of your finger and moves it away, it has not been easy for her we are her third owners and we can not understand how anyone would wish to not keep her, We are strong believers in animals are for live no matter what we also own a Belguim Shephard ( a German Shephard (2) two cats (15 & 4) and house rabbit (3) We lost one of are beloved pets last year Rossie the dog at the age of (16) Has anyone got any tips on teaching her more words or getting her to stand on my hand. We want to make the rest of her life the the best it can be and to make her feel secure?
  14. HI guys, there is no way she can get her head through the bars, she appears to be constantly grooming herself at the moment. We have only had her a few months so its all a learning curve for us at the mo. Also unsure how she has been treated in the past as she wont let you pick her up, she wont fly, however she is starting to let us stroke her head. Any info/ ideas very welcome
  15. I am a newbi to this forum, so hi everyone. We have recently got an African grey who is 12 years old, she has lost a few feathers around her neck. Can anyone help us with this? We have bought her a new cage more than double the size of her old one she has fruit and comes out everyday as she has her own portable stand. Any suggestions?
