Hi I’m sparky I’m a Congo African grey who came into problems parrots due to no fault of his
own. sparkys a loving bird who loves attention and been out.
Sparky didn’t have a good diet but was very much loved family pet sadly the original owners
health meant they could no longer give him the care he was needed. We are unsure of sparkys
birthday we think sparky is between 23/25 years old but is in very much good condition for this
Sparky is currently living with just the safehouse and a few other birds although sparky hasn’t
been out with them he doesn’t seem to be worried about them been around.
Sparky loves to be out and about he can fly and will step up onto a plastic large spoon, sparky
love his food.
Sparky has not really ventured off the cage much. It can sometimes take time to get me back
into my cage but other times I will take myself back in. There are four legged friends that live in the
safehouse I don’t mind these as long as I’m safely away in my cage not that I seen to much of
them as they are out quite a lot.
I sometimes can be scared when you clean me out but I get use to this over time by this I mean
if I’m in my cage I have do laps around the top of it and try and stay out of the way.
I’m not loud I do like to have a chat and make many different noises I can also speak .I am
getting on in age but I do still like to be around people and have lots of attention as this is what
I’m use to.
Haven’t really done any training as I already step up maybe a little work could be done on
making it easier for me to be less scared . I do love a nut here and there.
I do like my fresh veg and fruit can be picky on eating sprouting and soaking seeds as this is all
new to me still, seed wise I have a bit of mix up of tidy mix tropican pellets and tops pellets but
only a small amount in the evening.
I do like wooden and rope toys to chew and play but just keep and eye with the rope toys with
the threads for him ,will occasionally rip up the paper.
I do like to listen to the radio or even chatting with people is great. I do like to have the attention
or background noise to keep me company as this is what I’m use to.
Sparky is a grey that had a female main career before sadly she became too I'll to look after him
and then had a male career who he has know nearly his whole life, he will step up onto the
spoon/stick for females and hasn’t been know to bite either female or male. sparky is looking for
his new forever home where he can spend the rest of his life to call it home and have the
attention he has always had.
