I do not have dogs anymore because they do not live very long and you grow so attached to them that you get your heart broken over and over again when they die or have to be put down. I just could not handle another dog dying on me. So in January 1994 I put down $$$$ for a Congo African Grey Parrot that the pet store was waiting for the egg to hatch. It hatched on February 06, 1994 and I hand fed my baby grey (spoiled her and hand fed her for 1 year). She is 16 now and two days ago, she bit me for the very first time. on my left palm and it hurt like a mother fucker. I was a bit surprised because I know she loves me. I can see it in her eye and how she talks and acts around me.
So, here is Ashley- my 16 year old parrot that thinks she is my kid.
Ever hear Hatebeak? Death metal band with a Congo African Grey vocalist?
Ashley does not care for them but she does love her some Emperor!
I LOVE ASHLEY!!! Birds are very interesting creatures! Im glad you found a pet that will outlive you!....Now you need to find out who will take care of her after you are gone!
