||Three years old|
||Timneh African Gray|
||St. Peters, Missouri, USA|
is a Timneh African Gray parrot, they are a smaller breed than the
Congo African Greys, and their colors are somewhat darker. She is the
perfect size for us. We got Charlie at the age of one. Her favorite thing
to say is "Charlie's a good boy." Then recently, at three years old we had
Charlie DNA sexed and found that he is a she! Now she's really confused as
we are trying to teach herto say "Charlie's a good girl" instead of boy.
She loves chicken and pizza, almost falls off of her perch when she smells
it because she gets excited. Yes, she's a bit spoiled, but she deserves
it. And her kind can live to be 70 years old, so we are looking forward to
many years ahead with our pretty girl. Yes, girl, Charlie! You're good GIRL!
