Meet Dixie
« on: July 04, 2009, 02:19:20 PM »
My mother in Law was given this African Gray. A lady at her work son had her and could not keep her so they wanted to give her away. My mother in law already has two African Grays. We think she was not well taken care of. She has scratched all the feathers off around her neck and she was extremely small. Well DH went up to her house to see the new bird and he fell in love with her and she did so too. He had his hands in her cage in no time and loving all over her. Well we were told that we can have her if we want. We believe she is about 5 years old. This would be my first bird. My husband grew up around them so he can teach me.

:clap: Congratulations, you just entered a whole new world. I would get some bird vitamins from the grocery store and start her on those asap, make sure she has a cuttle bone, fresh water and seed daily, and fresh fruit and vegetables. With TLC like Kathy said, and attention, I'll bet she'll turn around in no time.

'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.' - Theodore Roosevelt 1907

The PIL's have had african greys for 13 years they want to make sure she is up to par before we get her. She was one of a breeding pair and her mate died. They never taught her how to step up or anything so Dh and his Dad will be working on that. We are excited about her and knows she needs a forever home after being passed around so much we are very excited about her.

 :whoohoo: good for you,
not everyone will take in a plucked bird.
she may have plucked from boredom or grief.
A good healthy diet, a lot of misting baths some good healty attention and I bet she will be good as new.
It is great that your il-laws have them too, always a great source of info
