||Five years old|
||Congo African Grey|
my name is Emily. My ancestors were originally from the ivory coast
of Africa. But I live in the mountains of Washington State. I like all
kinds of fruit and veggies. My favorite things are going for a ride with
my human slave and playing with my toys.
Emily is very affectionate with a few specially selected people. She likes
to hang on my finger and pretend she is an airplane. Her favorite game is
to call the dog (Phoebe) and start to bark, then she will say "Phoebe, no bark!"
The Congo African Grey is a very intelligent bird. They do require a great
deal of mental stimulation and patience. But for the time and energy you
put forth, the pay off is ten fold.
