Hello to all

Just joined today (The Parrot Society) and this forum too (very impressed with ppl's knowledge!). We have had birds all my life and am always interested in hearing about others and their characters etc! Our georgious Quaker recently died (he was really good, potty trained and a good talker too) so we are looking for a new member for our family. Still not sure whether a CAG or an Amazon is the way to go.. looks as though the African may win!! :wink: Will keep you posted!

hi and welcome to the forum. sorry to hear about your little quaker,was he an old bird?

if you don't mind the noise, amazons,although more laid back than a cag can screech twice as loud.i have an african grey and recently he's started screeching even when i'm in the same room!

good luck with whatever bird you decide upon.

Hello there

Many thanks for the warm welcome. We decided on the CAG - and were lucky enough to get one within a matter of a couple of days! He's/she's settling in quite nicely but it looks as though we will have a trouble maker!! Our quaker was only 2 so it was a shock (I have been recently told they are subject to heart attacks), however we are still stunned and question what went wrong. We have a couple of books to read up on CAG's :? ... but no doubt we will have some questions (our cag is not quite 3 months old).

has he been weaned yet? 12 weeks sounds a little young to be home with you unless he has.I'd take great care if you're still hand feeding him yourself,read loads of books and don't be afraid to ask anyone questions on anything to do with greys.

Good luck wth your new bird.

Hi there

Yes he is. I did feed him twice for a few minutes within the first 2 days which seemed to be a comfort to him and to let him know which food was in which bowl just to make sure. But he quickly picked this up and was eating on his own without any help, so it hasn't, fortunately, been a problem. I did leave a couple of questions on feeding and training in another section of the forum (with the title of feeding and training).. would appreciate your comments on this.

Many thanks
