The highly-sought-after African Grey parrot is an incredibly sensitive bird.

Its natural voice is a series of whistles, clicks and rumbling growls, but it is renowned for its ability to imitate noises and speech to a high degree.

Not all African Grey parrots, however, will be brilliant talkers, so this aspect should be a secondary consideration when choosing this species as a companion. Any desirable speech should be considered a bonus!

Proven by scientist Dr Irene Pepperberg to have learning abilities equal to those of a toddler, African Grey Parrots should be treated with the utmost respect, for they will not forget or forgive rough handling, frights or neglect. And as with all parrots, company and stimulation should be high on the list of ‘must haves’ for these wonderful birds.

Socialization with many understanding ‘parrot people’ at a young age will increase confidence and thus reduce dependency on a single figure later in life.

Two well-known African Grey parrots that I bred and reared are Artha and Casper, much loved – and, as readers of Parrots Magazine will know.

The species is common in captivity and regularly kept by humans as a companion parrot, prized for its ability to mimic human speech, African grey parrots are highly intelligent and are considered by many to be one of the most intelligent species of psittacines.

A number of studies have been conducted with African Greys, indicating a slew of higher level cognitive abilities. Experiments have shown that grey parrots can learn number sequences and can learn to associate human voices with the faces of the humans who create them. The American scientist Irene Pepperberg’s work with Alex the parrot showed his ability to learn more than 100 words, differentiating between objects, colours, materials, and shapes Pepperberg spent several decades working with Alex, and wrote numerous scientific papers on experiments performed, indicating his advanced cognitive abilities. One such study found that Alex had the ability to add numbers as well as having a zero-like concept, similar to that of young children and apes. Congo African Grey For Sale.
